I've been practicing all of my life. Its matter of pride, or some such nonsense, that I have control, or should I say mastery.

Older guys tend to loose some of the natural ability, no matter how much they practice. When I was 12, we would have pissing contests in the boys john. Could get started, then back all the way across the room and then get back to the urinal, all on target. I remember my infant son laying on the exam table and squirting his pediatrician in the eye.

So, the waste just slides down into the river? Was drunken pissing a safety hazard before? A major cause of death is from hikers pissing over cliffs and slipping off.

Men are not known to have perfect control. If you don't believe me, ask your wife.
Or anyone who cleans men's toilets! ;D

Ladies have good control, or wet feet. Of course there is variation in the angle of the original outlet from body to body. From what I can tell, she would have to be very tall, or straddle the bowl.

Ladies make huge messes, ask anyone in janitorial work or the plumbing industry.  In public facilities women "hover" rather than sit.  Their stream comes out at high velocity and then they have flaps that cause a splattering.  A hovering female gets the seat wet, and then the next has to hover or sit in the water.  Women's restrooms get much more messed up than men's restrooms.  My roommate was the janitorial supervisor while I was in college.  That's standard throughout the industry, at least in America.  Outdoors standing up women tend to water their own legs and feet. 

Women have higher stream velocity due to short internal plumbing.  Some can pee farther than men if they tip pelvis forward and hold flaps apart.  Men should never get into a distance peeing contest with a woman.

The plumbing industry is now making stand up urinals for women again.  I saw photos on another web site.  It had a protrusion to fit between her legs for collecting pee.   I don't know what country it was from, perhaps India.

While in Bolivia decades ago, along with derbie hats and pigtails, the women wore bulbous skirts with petty coats enough to make a hoop effect. It looked like tent from the waist down. At a local Saturday market, one Native lady simply squatted in the gutter next to the sidewalk. Causally acting, her actual function was hidden from view. Only a tale-tell stream of fluid ran down the street from under her. Her keniestetic position no different from a host of other activities that a lady might do.

Squatting on the side of the road has been common for women until more  recent times. As a boy in Japan, I remember grandmas on the side of the road squatting and even wiping in public in farmlands at the base of Mt. Fuji. Perhaps that is how women got to be the ones who get to wear skirts in so many cultures.

For a time, modern Western women no long peed at all. They would power their noses and defy nature in white gloves, bullet shell breasts and impossible shoes.

This public pee station is a solution to a problem. We are still not certain what the problem is, or was. Anyway, it seems to have been perceived a men's problem.

I do like their eco-friendly makeup. They make compost and have green plants on them.

This had them walking between the stalls and the men using the urinals on the opposite wall, but nobody was bothered.

Or, nobody was brave enough to object and tell the ladies to go away.

Happens all the time in France and no-one ever seems to object!

And of course it's quite common in a French loo, even in small places such as restaurants, to find a woman at a table down there collecting money.

In a tourist spot it Italy once there was only the one bog, or at least one entrance, and one long queue, and inside a set of WC cubicles on one side and a set of urinals on the other. The attendant was going along the queue sending men to the front saying "men come forward please - no queue for men" in various languages. (And assuming that there were no shy men!).

My experience in France was that the Restroom Attendant was always a woman.  Apparently the French consider that to be women's work.

Having a long queue shows that the facility did not adequately provide for the body needs of their customers.  That is a major failure of architect and owner in my opinion. 

This discussion reminds me of New York City, USA, where they have a local law requiring buildings to have 2X as many toilets for women as for men.  Tall buildings are required to have a women's toilet on every floor, but only every other floor for men.   They call that "Potty Parity."   Its a feminist version of "equal rights."
