Pee flood protector

For men sitting on the toilet while reading a book or posting on whatsapp

Every now and then I find the floor in front of me surprisingly flooded. It seems I'm not the only one. The standard toilet is not meant for sitting men unless they direct the squirt.

All that's needed is a small strip of plastic that protrudes downwards in the front of the toilet seat, and directs the stream of urine back into the toilet and not through the crack between the toilet seat and the toilet where it wants to go.

       Sure this has been done before

       Yes, it's been done (link).   

       But ironically, *public* toilets (in USA at least) typically have seats that are "open" at front. So you don't touch your naughty bits up against something that might have touched anyone else's.

       //not meant for sitting men unless they direct the squirt//
I sit down to pee precisely because I DON'T need to "direct the squirt". Gravity takes care of everything. It's extremely rare (mostly dependent on the exact geometry of the toilet I happen to be using) that anything "escapes".

       Jesus man, how many times does it have to happen to you before you learn to aim?

       You don't worry about accidentally dipping it in the frigid bowl water?   

       Just me?
Alrighty then.

       No, not just you.

       I'm not in North America; no "full bowl" issues here. See linky.

       My body shape and sizes leaves me vulnerable to many toilets, especially smaller ones. I appreciate any invention that helps. [+] Touching the inside of it, touching the water, and urinating on my own trousers when sitting down are all hazards. Worse, whenever I complain about my issues people think I'm bragging. I'm really not, I just wish the world was designed for the more endowed. Very few normal things feel worse than dipping one's morning wood into a toilet bowl.

       This won't help with wood, bruh.

       In the book of man, chapter 5, verse 15:   

       For whilst thou not be a gecko, or camel,
or ambidextrous horse.
Thou shalt always direct thy squirt,
And manage your damn course.
