And Dr. Teresa Irwin, a Vaginacologist, from Texas has shared a video on TikTok explaining what exactly is the correct way to pee. 

In the video, while demonstrating, she says: “Did you know there is actually more than one way for us to pee.”

As she sits down on a seat, Dr Irwin sits up straight and says: “Most of us are taught to pee, properly – so very prim and proper.

“But I call it prim and im-proper because you’re not going to empty your bladder this way.

She advised that it is much better to pee ‘like a cowboy’ by leaning forward[/caption]

“One third of the urine will still remain in the bladder if you pee in this upright position.

“The proper way to pee is like a cowboy. Just lean forward, put your elbows right above your kneecaps and pee. 

“Make sure your feet are flat though because otherwise if you are still on your tippy toes.”

And the video, which has been shared to her 85.4k followers, shocked some viewers.
