Modern British men will spend almost ONE YEAR (315 days to be exact) of their lifetime in the bathroom, according to new research.
Researchers have revealed the extent to which the nation’s WCs are being taken over by males – with the typical bloke now spending TWO HOURS a week hogging the family bathroom for their maintenance routine.
According to the poll of 1,000 males by Just for Men Control GX, the average man will spend a whopping 3.5 MONTHS simply sitting on the loo.
But when it comes to what men ACTUALLY get up to when locked in the loo – a quarter confessed to leisurely checking Facebook and Instagram, while one in five prefers to catch up on work emails.
Aside from personal hygiene, one in 12 men reckon some of their best ideas have come from when they were mulling things over in the toilet, while one in seven men said they came up with an ingenious, money-making scheme whilst in the shower.
Perhaps not surprisingly, one in 15 men admitted to spending too much time in the bathroom, the research reveals. A cringe-worthy one in five likes to sit back and read a newspaper or magazine while relaxing on the toilet.
To help uncover the truth about men’s bathroom time, the survey asked respondents what they use their time in the bathroom to do (apart from the obvious!).
