There is little information available about the impact incontinence has on men. Using photographs, men were asked to rate the perceived embarrassment of the wearer. Embarrassment ratings rose with the size of the visible wet area, but were lower from those who had experienced the problem themselves. Knowing how to deal with the feelings of embarrassment seems to be critical when dealing with incontinent males.
