Yeeeeah, I'm going to say "no" to those squat toilets where they don't bother to provide paper or even a rinse hose. Pulling your drawers up and walking away without wiping? F-ing gross.

that's a bidet (the uncovered porcelain) and you use it to wash your "down unders". You can even wash your foot or shave your legs in here. Bidets are used in European countries like Italy, Spain and France and also in Latin American countries like Argentina and Brazil

They sell them in America too, but in order to have one, you need to have an appreciation for higher levels of civilization.

there's usually a faucet and water bowl that you fill first and use to rinse off.  welcome to how 75% of the world shiats.

Isn't that even nastier?  Using the same bowl that someone else just used?  No thanks, I'll just grab a newspaper or something.

Nepal and India have the hose, paper is rare and when you visit you need to remember to bring your own from the hotel if you go out.    There are some places where breathing is a real challenge.

I'm curious, does the army have to teach soldiers how to shiat in the forest? I mean, you can thank the Romans for the sit-n-shiat, but even the most posh Roman general would still use the old squat.

Those were the most gigantic pictures of toilets that I have ever seen.

So, thanks for that opportunity.

it's an entirely different kind of toilet. Altogether.

Squat toilets with no walls? Pass. Or squat and hold hands with your neighbor if you're feeling neighborly.

So the squat ones with the bowl of water, are you supposed to dumb the bowl of water down your ass after the shiat?  And walk out with wet pants?  I'm seriously confused.
 
2014-05-07 09:14:06 AM
I enjoy pooping, but I don't think I would if I had to use most of those.  The bidet could be fun though.

I'm going to run a hose up to my bathroom I can see a real savings with not having to buy anymore T.P.

Never saw a bidet in France.  Only differences I noted:

Buttons instead of handles for flushing
The bowl did not have a straight shot into the hole, it had more of an angled back, kind of like the german "shelf" in the article, but more of a slope
Non automatic washing public toilets (like in grocery stores) on average were about 5 times nastier then the worst public restroom I have been to in the states.
Automatic washing public restooms had stainless steel bowls, no seat, and instead of a bidet it had a button that would spray an antibiotic substance on your ass (more like lower back if you were sitting down completely.  Plus, the floor was always wet (due to the fact that the restroom hoses itself down after every use)

Also, they still love the pink toilet paper over there.

Plant Rights Activist: I can't help but think using the local water source to clean your nethers is not a good idea for travelers.


Eh? Are you suggesting that you not shower for weeks at a time traveling somewhere, because you'd be covered (including nethers) in 'local water source'?  We're washing externally here, not getting an enema.

stovepipe: So the squat ones with the bowl of water, are you supposed to dumb the bowl of water down your ass after the shiat?  And walk out with wet pants?  I'm seriously confused.


In most cases, you use the smaller cup/'dipper' to pour a slow-ish stream down your ass, and use your left hand to splash the water and actually clean your butt.  The flowing water keeps your fingers from getting too bad, then you soap and water your hand afterwards.  And, yeah, normally you walk out a little damp.  But, clean at least.  You dry quickly enough. And you don't get swamp-butt, btw. (Notice, you never get swamp-butt out of the shower. You get it from sweat dissolving the residue that you'll never get off with dry paper.)

Thanks for the explanation.

Here's my CSB toilet tale.

My mother grew up in rural west Tennessee in the 50s and 60s.  They (7 kids) lived on a mostly sustainable farm and the only indoor plumbing they had was the kitchen sink.  Heating water on the stove and sponge bathing out of a pot was how they got clean.  They had an outhouse which consisted of a hole in the ground, toilet seat situated over that, and a tiny enclosed structure around it.  Toilet paper?  Naw, Sears and Roebuck catalogs.

It really sucked during the winter months but generally they made it fine.  Until one summer day her older brother sat down to take a nice long shiat.  No joke, a black widow spider crawled up and bit him on the penis.  He made it to the emergency room in the closest town, got some meds, and was released the same day amazingly enough.

Moral of the story, if you are in the rural south and use an outhouse to take a shiat.  Check very carefully for spiders.

When you clean your kitchen counter, is the sponge you use wet or dry?

Why would your ass be any different?

When I went to basic training in the army, most of my preconceived notions weren't true, except for the preconceived notion that the latrine had a row of commodes with no divider, so you did you business up close an personal.  That one was true.  You really get to know your buddy when you take a shiat in full view of everyone else.

It's odd that we've evolved to have a need for butt wiping. Anyone who has owned a pet knows every once in a while an animal poop doesn't go to plan and they end up with some on their fur but for the most part, they don't have a need to wipe. Sure, some of that is just a difference in hygiene or a habit of butt licking but overall we seem to have an inferior design when it comes to releasing solid waste.
