Swivel peeler - towards or away?

My wife and I just peeled 40 lbs of potatoes this past weekend for our annual latke fest. She is an ardent "away" peeler, pushing the peeler away from the body. I am a steadfast "toward" peeler, drawing the peeler towards the body. I think "away" is probably faster but less controlled (= more peels on floor + occasional dropped potatoes!), while "towards" gives cleaner results. So SE community: are you "towards" or "away"?
