Despite a provoking title, I am looking for a word, phrase or eloquent sentence to describe the process a male performs after taking a piss, that is, shaking off remaining pee off the tip of his penis. I apologize for being vague, and I am sure you're getting the drift.

Given the topic, I hope I won't get flamed for a little facetiousness. Those who have attended a British public school will know that shaking it more than twice is called masturbation >;-) –  smirkingman Jan 25 '11 at 12:53

Any comment as to why you chose one -1 answer over a +8 one? –  mplungjan Jan 26 '11 at 8:47

Only word I have ever heard is Shake - as in the well known proverb:

No matter how you shake and dance, the last few drops go in your pants

+1. This has a verbatim Turkish version: "Ne kadar sallarsan salla, donuna düşer son damla". –  Mehper C. Palavuzlar Jan 25 '11 at 12:45

German: "Da hilft kein Schütteln und kein Klopfen, immer in die Hose geht der letzte Tropfen". @Mehper. –  RegDwigнt Jan 25 '11 at 13:06

"You can shake it in your hand, you can slam it on the wall. But until you get it in your pants, that last drop will not fall." –  MT_Head May 22 '11 at 0:02

@Martha - Sigh. Women and their lack of anatomy knowledge - have a look at wikipedia male anatomy. The drop we are discussing is not wipe-able. –  mplungjan May 22 '11 at 5:02

The best phrase I've heard for the process is "shaking the dew off the lily."

Well, I would refer to it as personal hygiene.

Except that anyone counting that as hygiene is seriously delusional –  Grant Thomas Aug 8 '11 at 17:46

The term I grew up with (in Baltimore) nd have heard in other generations and another part of the country (Colorado) is "wean." I think "shake" is more common; I have heard it more in popular culture.

I went to a bar once where the toilets were labelled "Drip dry" and "Flip dry"...
