Why does this matter?
A toilet seat is something that everybody wants to be in its best condition. We mean dry and clean when we expect the toilet seat in the best condition. It is not unusual the pee aiming will be successful in every attempt. Especially in case of public toilets which are not in a comfortable height for gent kids. In such case aiming to pee is not a good idea for kids especially.
That’s not all.
You need to stand to aim properly for peeing. Standing is not a good option for peering especially for men with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). It can cause painful and incomplete urination accompanied by a frequent feeling of urination.
The last word as a recommendation, if you have to pee better take a seat instead of target practicing. It is a healthier and hygienic practice.

Especially if you have kids with you, it is really an embarrassing condition for them too.
If you have a close relationship with any couple, you can ask the men do they have to suffer for keeping the toilet seat up? Well, they answer honestly or not sometimes it gets hard to hold peace in the family. (Trust me, I have experienced)

Besides, no matter how well you try to decorate your toilet it is a gross place. When the toilet seat and lid are down, it gives eye comfort by hiding the split materials which uncomfortable to us.
Nevertheless, nobody imagines having an up toilet seat late at night. Therefore it is quite natural to have a sudden fall inside the toilet bowl in sleepy eyes at midnight. Women, children and sometimes the men also might fall down. When you are tired you will definitely sit down and trust me, you will not be in a mode to target practice.
