I don't really belong to the type of people, who stay longer on the toilet than necessary. I read mostly on my desktop anyway, so no.


» Zodiac Prince on November 5th, 2016, 2:51am

I do it all the time. often staying longer than necessary to do so. and it's not just manga. books, web comics, news articles twitter feeds, etc.

I lost count of how many times i was reading manga on the toilets until my legs go numb. In fact i am writing this post while sitting on the toilet right now.


» KaoriNite on November 5th, 2016, 5:35am

I'm exactly the same as @RoxFlowz. The only thing I do on the toilet is use it. I rarely stay on there for more than a couple of minutes, so there's no real need to do anything else. And I only read manga on my laptop, so nope.


» drunkguy on November 5th, 2016, 6:14am

My bathroom has a skylight so it it's surprisingly comfortable to read in... wink

I read comics on my gaming desktop, so no, but i do regularly read or play handheld games on the toilet, so i can´t vote. I would use I sit there for a while and just read if i had a smartphone for comic reading. That´s what thew toilet was invested for, if used correctly:

These choices

I mean I've never done it. Would I? Sure.


» silvarion on November 5th, 2016, 3:37pm

we are a big family. taking a long time in a toilet will just be a bother. so, Ew. No way


» quark1020 on November 5th, 2016, 7:17pm

Its more of a "no" than "Ew, no". I'm not above reading on the john, I just don't have a big enough smart phone for manga. Also, I don't want to get my paper books....wet.


» Suxinn on November 5th, 2016, 7:25pm

Occasionally. But since I got a smartphone, that (as in: phone gaming) is now my go-to toilet-ing occupation.

In general, I'm definitely the type to stay on the toilet longer than necessary, even when I don't have anything with me. The toilet is my favorite thinking spot.


» mikako17 on November 5th, 2016, 8:12pm

Sometimes doing a number 2 takes a while so of course I read or play games on my smart phone, but I can't really read manga because the screen is just too small.


» eccentrrick on November 5th, 2016, 10:25pm

"Maybe just a few mins at a time"

I don't take long tho, haha. I won't stay longer than I have to.


» Luciferhawke on November 5th, 2016, 10:40pm

Thanks to my tablet, pretty much every time i have to go. Turns a 3 minute dump into 30. laugh


» mysstris on November 5th, 2016, 11:04pm

It's not always but I ensure my hands are clean during handling and the place i put down my phone after is clean too.


» jonytep on November 6th, 2016, 3:18am

So many "Ew. No way" ... If you have a tablet/phone, why not read in the bathroom? laugh


» MinatoAce on November 6th, 2016, 8:32am

Not really!
I take my time during a Shower/Bath leisurely. In a relaxing way (lol).
On the other hand, I'm super fast during Number 2 seasons (number 1 as well...lulz) bigrazz


» Senrosj on November 7th, 2016, 2:12pm

If a had a decent smartphone, then maybe, but I have a crappy one with barely any memory in it for apps, so I can't sad
I do sometimes play games on it while I'm on the toilet, but by that I mean once in a blue moon. I usually either get my business done and get out or think about stuff I have to do or random things and stay a bit longer than usual.


» silver and blue on November 9th, 2016, 4:42am

good question drunkguy, i'm glad you asked! wink


» youtakun on November 16th, 2016, 4:40pm

What's the problem with reading manga on the toilet? It's not like your tablet will smell differently than if you play games or watch youtube on the toilet...
