There's also lots of causes and poor hygiene is not the most common cause. Other health issues may also raise the risk of uti such as diabetes, or in my case a spinal injury. Also majority of females will experience a uti at some point in their life... doesn't mean they're unhygienic. Come on people research, it's handy.

I thought a man could pass a UTI onto a woman, but not the other way around because I man's urethra is involved in sexual intercourse, but a woman's isn't. Or did "The Green Mile" lie to me?

I don't think men pass it along, but women can get UTIs from having sex generally if they don't pee afterwards to get the bacteria out of the urethra, since bacteria can get shoved up there from...the, yknow, motions.

UTIs can be a recurring problem for some women, the last thing they need is the stigma that they're dirty and unhygienic people, check your facts before you start spreading that silliness please.

I completely agree #3. However the boyfriends research likely consists of tv shows as I've personally seen a tv sitcom mention that UTI's can only be caught by men during sexual intercourse with an infected female. I know that's not true but most people will assume a tv show does their research.
