Toilet breaks are essential in our day-to-day routines, but we know males are stereotypically known for their long toilet breaks. 

A family decided to take a fresh approach to letting dad know that he takes a bit too long during his toilet break. 

Mom coordinated a whole celebration for dad as he came out of the bathroom. The Real talk show hosts touched on the subject above...

According to the New York PostGastrointestinal psychologist Madison Simons of the Cleveland Clinic says that there is a biological reason behind males long bathroom breaks. 

"Men, it turns out, have a tendency to feel more relaxed while on the john than a woman would, Simons explained. That’s because they have a “binary switch” to abruptly hop between fight-or-flight instincts known as both the sympathetic state (tense) and at ease parasympathetic one (relaxed). For digestion to occur properly, a body must be in the second state." (NY Post)
