Our toilet gets cleaned ALL the time (DF is a clean freak), yep poo and wee are gross. But so is vomit, I'd rather have a spew and flush it away then clean it up. And FTR I lean with my hands on my knees lol.

Ideally - outside onto the grass (near the fenceline), then cleanup with a hose.
When I was pregnant with DD1, I used to catch a bus to uni, and every time I would get off the bus (in the Myer Centre, Brisbane City) and then vomit into the nearest rubbish bin. I felt bad about it, but didn't know what else to do. (It was only a small amount - no more than a cup full - but I did feel sorry for the cleaner that would need to change the bin bag.)
I got a nasty bout of gastro once, and that is the only time I remember throwing up on a toilet. The gastro gave me diaroeah, but I was also newly pregnant and very sensitive to smells. Every time I went to the toilet, the smell of my own excrement would make me vomit. Therefore I would be sitting, perched as far back as I could on the toilet so that I could still poo into the toilet but there was room at the front to vomit into at the same time. It was a very unpleasant three weeks.
When my children have been unwell. I put towels down in the bath for them to sleep on. That way if they vomit during the night it stays in the bathtub.
Edit: I'm feeling like the odd one out because my answers dont match anyone elses.

Exactly the same way as was on Packed to the Rafters. I just find it alot more comfortable... The only time i will sit or kneel on the floor is if i am very tired or drunk etc.

Stand. I'm short and will be leaning on the toilet if I kneel over it. I only kneel if I'm very very sick and weak.
Also, we cloth nappy and have a little squirt hose on our toilet, so if a bucket is used it's easy to clean up! Has also been useful for when DD has spewed on her sheets and PJs.

I have a bowl specifically for vomiting. No way is my face going anywhere near a toilet bowl except in an emergency when I have no other choice
(an yes I'm sure everyone would be just as grossed out by my bowl as I am of using the toilet :P) I wash it very well after its been used, but considering how much I vomit (health issue), very necessary LOL
So I vomit in whatever position I end up in : P

Generally with my head in a bucket but when I had morning sickness it was.. Toilet, shower, bath, kitchen sink, kitchen floor (accident I didn't move fast enough), plastic bag, empty lunch box I kept in my car for emergencies.. Etc.. It wasn't pretty!
I tend to agree with PP's re: head in the toilet but sometimes there was no avoiding it lol

At home We have puke buckets(old large ice cream tubs) that I throw away when the illness is over, or 9mths of pregnancy is over.
if its in public standing, wouldnt sit on that floor if ya pay me. lol

With my Hyperemesis id sit on the toilet floor then kneel over when i had to. Squatting made me wee as i threw up (which was a lot). If i hadnt eaten yet id throw up in the bathroom sink as the running water on my hand made me feel less ill.
If its just random sickness i bend over.
