Women are more squeamish than men about standards at public restrooms and less likely to use them in every single scenario presented by a new survey bar one: an admission charge.

According to the survey of 1,000 Danes by GfK Norm for Katrin, a washroom solutions provider, 35 percent of men would not use a restroom that charges an entry fee, compared to 27 percent among women.

A dirty restroom was the number one reason why Danes would leave a public restroom (71 percent) followed by a bad smell (60 percent).

About half of the people asked in the survey said they wouldn’t use a restroom if there was no toilet paper left.

However, broken locks, long lines and minimal privacy weren’t of major concern.
