Well ventilated toilet

<< < (2/3) > >>

Sunny Clouds:
Sudden mental image of a cat and a litter tray, followed by an image of a cat and a flower-bed or similar, followed by an image of a squaddie between bushes in a training area.  All on a spectrum.

Confession time - when I have doom-and-gloom moments about war, crisis, homelessness or whatever, one of the things that worries me most is the thought of no toilet access.  I see columns of desperate refugees and think "What do they wipe their bums with?" but then lots of people in the world use leaves, and besides, if you've little access to food, you've little undigested food to get rid of anyway.

Further thought (mind going off on different tangent) - where I live, over the years we've had cuts to public facilities. The old Victorian loos, often underground, were gradually closed, leaving the option of either using loos in places like shopping centres etc. or using what round here we call tardis loos.

But the tardis loos are typically wet underfoot, messy and all too often littered with used drug injection paraphenalia, so they've been mostly closed now.

Maybe time for us locals to say to the council "Never mind those silly planters you use to block off roads to create Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, why not install bush thunderboxes?"

Hello Sunny Cloud's




I would be happy to use this loo + as every one has a simmular body I have nothing to hide + not embarressed the view would lossen my bodyly fuction's

Sunny Clouds:
I think some people, particularly some women, get very anxious in mixed environments.  I grew up in a family that wasn't coy, and in the army there were times when there was no privacy, whether that meant shared loos or shared showers, so it doesn't come naturally to me to worry about people seeing my body.

My daft problem when I joined the army, which initially led to constipation, was that whilst I didn't mind others seeing me squatting, I had (and still have) a fear of being interrupted.  I don't know why but I suspect it's a hygiene thing, a sense that I mightn't have time to clean myself before pulling my clothes up.

So maybe if there was a queue for a thunderbox, I'd want to scrape a hole nearby and squat over that instead.
