The jokes on ‘pee after sex’ meme are not only hilarious but also has aided in having a meaningful discussion on sex. Peeing after sex is believed to be a form of safe sex, a topic, which should ideally be a part of sex education in schools.
Women are at higher risk of developing a UTI than men – for a simple reason, they have a shorter urethra than men do, making it easier for bacteria to travel fast from urethra to the bladder, where they begin to multiply. Now, peeing after sex helps them flush out these bacteria, responsible for urinary tract infections (UTIs).
According to Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai MD Alan B. Copperman, “Sex is often associated with UTIs because sexual intercourse introduces bacteria through the urethra and into a woman’s urinary tract.” In fact, the most common UTIs affect the bladder and urethra. So it is quite essential to ‘pee after sex’ and avoid getting a UTI in the first place.
