With my luck I'd be in there by myself trying to pluck a noisehair or doing kissy faces at myself.

Are you telling me I've been an artist all this time and didn't know it ? Cool!

Men need to be prompted to talk about voyeurism?

Grables'Daughter: AverageAmericanGuy: Grables'Daughter: FloydA: Grables'Daughter: Amos Quito: Do women's restrooms really have sofas?

And beds.

Go on...

It takes us so long because we are having sexy sex with each other every time we go.

Every.

Time.

Well, that answers my question.

I probably shouldn't have said anything. There's a code that we have where we don't tell what we do in there that takes so long.


i can fap to that

yes, yes I can

As long as they don't install a one-way vent to force men to smell the women's room.

This could be helpful when I have my two daughters use a bathroom and they just start making faces into the mirror instead of washing their hands.

LeroyBourne: aspAddict: LeroyBourne: Women are just gonna ask each other questions as to why men put up one hand on the wall while pissing.

I can't speak for other men out there, but I know that for the male population of Fark, it's so we don't throw our backs out...

Yep, the whole 'lifting heavy objects' thing. I once had a sex marathon with a beautiful model, I must have lasted 3 min, 4 tops. I know I shouldn't tote my sexual skills and stamina, but this is Fark after all.

Amos Quito: Do women's restrooms really have sofas?


My understanding from talking to several women at my last job is that the "ladies" room at the office is a warzone of shiat, piss, and blood. "Hover spray" should help form the proper image.

I asked after the 5th or 6th time I saw the same coworker come out of the lobby bathroom as I was passing thru the lobby. Seemed odd to go all the way down to the lobby until she explained. Several others confirmed her assertion. Sometimes it's best not to lift the veil.

The purpose of art is to evoke a response from an observer. You may not consider it art, but you cannot deny that it will accomplish the goal.
 
2012-10-22 03:40:59 PM
As long as you aren't watching inside the stalls I don't get what the problem is. I have quite often seen a woman go into the men's bathroom at bars because the line for the women's bathroom went around the block while the stall at the men's was free. At worst they'd see the backs of the men/man at the urinal and at worst the men would see a woman enter a stall.

/Having the mirror view the faces of the men goes a bit far

I'm sure it will evoke something from the observer.

Well, the one way mirror thing in the bar bathroom has been done before. There was one in NYC that had a unisex bathroom in the front room, with a one way mirror onto the street. People on the street could view into the bathroom and see people primping themselves and washing their hands, etc. They had full door locking stalls, so that wasn't really an issue.

So, I could, by that definition, commit some heinous act in front of an audience and call it art? I'm not buying that definition, but I will concede it does evoke a response.

That gal on the end always confused me: Everybody else is looking down in some way, and doing something appropriate (picture, measuring tape, laughing). But that gall on the end has her hands out of view, is looking straight at "you", with a look of astonishment on her face. Are you peeing ON her? What's she doing with her hands? Wierd....

I hope they track the incidence of graffiti, clean-up problems, and other bad behavior. All people behave better when they think their opposite sex might be watching.

If there is sufficient improvement, make the arrangement permanent.

FTFA: The restaurant recently put up a sign advising women that they are part of an "art project" after complaints.

Wait, what?!? They didn't have a sign up from the beginning?

Also, one-way mirrors don't work the way some shows show them; you need the room one side to be significantly darker. How are they arranging this -- are they darkening the men's room on one side of a semi-silvered mirror, or are they putting video camera in a dark recess behind the women's mirror, and putting up screens in the mens bathroom?

there's so many advancements in building materials every year I find it hard to believe in this day and age we don't have real deal one way mirror.

Dumb and not even original. There is a club called "The Park" in downtown Sacramento. It has a window connecting the women's and men's bathroom both sides can see each other. Hell, "Faces" in Sacramento has co-ed bathrooms, try that one on for size.

Of course you could. It won't stand up as a defense in court, but...it would be art. Art is just an intention. Many Farkers hate that stuff, but that's it. Sh*t in a box? Art.

Now selling it, getting people to give a sh*t, and see believe your point of view is the hard part.
