Why do some men take so long to poop?

If you’ve ever wondered why men take so long to poop, you may have found yourself asking if there’s a medical reason. Why else would some men take so much longer than women to take care of their business? 

The answer, however, does not appear to be anatomical. In fact, men might actually be quicker in discharging their defecatory duties than women are. One 2009 study in the journal Gender Medicine sought to investigate the gender differences of various pooping plights. The researchers looked at constipation, stool consistency, the need to use fingers to evacuate, and a host of other less-than-pleasant doody-related conditions. The team concluded that women were more likely to experience “abnormal bowel habits” and constipation than men.
