It shouldn't. It should be stood up on the back of the toilet, or similar

None of the above. I'll comment with the One True Way

Hanging on the wall side, as this is slightly less likely to self-unwind (when provoked by wind/cats/gravity fluctuations) in many designs of holder.

Our loo roll lives stood up on the end of the bathroom radiator though, as our landlord was too stingy to splash out on such frivolous items as a towel rail or loo roll holder.

There should also be a second roll stood up on the cistern or otherwise within arm's reach, but slightly less easy to get to than the in-use roll[1]. As long as this is replaced when needed, you should never find yourself needing to improvise/hobble across to the cupboard/yell for help/phone a friend.


[1] If the primary and secondary rolls are equally accessible, then the majority of humans, being stupid, will tend to take from the larger one. This is clearly wrong, as it will inevitably lead to both rolls running out at about the same time, defeating the purpose of the second roll.

Agreed.

Though ours is often on the cistern (i.e. behind your back), it's also sometimes on a little shelf near the "proper" roll - but that's not such a problem since it's covered by a little plush toilet roll covering (think tea cosy for the general shape) with a plush-toy duck's head on top, so it's not immediately obvious as a target for procuring toilet paper from.
