Between men and women, there are some basic differences. These were illuminated for us the other night. We tiptoed through the dark to the bathroom, leaving the lights off so as not to wake boyfriend, who's a light sleeper, and experienced the "porcelain splash." How could we prevent this from happening again?...

One idea is the Considerate Seat, a self-closing toilet that lowers the lid after a few minutes. It attaches like a standard seat, requiring no additional maintenance or installation (there are no batteries to replace, no electricity or no plumbing needed), so it won't replace one argument with another. You can stop the lowering seat at any time or lower it yourself, or put it back up, with no harm to the closer.
