Bingewatching Netflix could put you at risk for hemorrhoids

Now that’s streaming!

Millions of Netflix users around the world watch the service while sitting on the can in public restrooms, according to a new study.

The purveyor of “Stranger Things” and “House of Cards” — which boasts 109 million subscribers globally — says 67 percent of its users reported watching in public, and 12 percent of those do it from the comfort of a comfort station, EW reports.

Doctors warn that sitting on the loo too long is a health hazard, putting poopers at risk of hemorrhoids.

Perhaps viewers are looking for privacy for particularly emotional movies — because one in five public Netflix viewers said they’ve cried in public while watching.

More than a third admitted to watching at work — fewer than the 27 percent who binge shows like “Narcos” and “Daredevil” while waiting in line.

But public Netflix viewing poses bigger risks than just losing your job — 11 percent of public viewers say they’ve had a TV show or movie spoiled by sneaking a peak at someone else’s screen.
