Public toilet, tourist attracktion? Oct 20, 2012
Ok, I feel like typing today. You know when you are out, at a certain point you have your FFP (First Fatal Piss), after that you just keep on using the toilet. In Amsterdam you have those round toilets on the streets. I just used on, when going out there was a whole group of Turkish tourists taking pictures of this round toilet. I was like, huh?
Would you take a picture of a public toilet!

I thought it was just women who held off going for that first wee?
I always like to plan what to wear on those nights out. Tights are just a pain after a few hours, trousers, much more functional.

As for the toilets you describe FD, they must be a novelty for the tourists.

The only time I remember taking a picture of a toilet, not the actual pot, but the room, was in the Burj Al Arab. The poshest loo that I've ever been in.

The weirdest one was in a club in NYC. The whole facility was in darkness except for a pink bulb which shone down into each bowel. A bit scary when taking a peek at what you've passed.

You have to plan ahead :-). Weirdest toilet for me was in Tel-Aviv. The wash bin was in the middle for both men and women. When washing your hands, you see hands coming from the other side. And that after a few beers :-).

I don't like those german toilets, are Dutch ones the same? There is a ledge where what you've done, sits there until you flush :shock:

Funnily enough one of my friends on FB posted some toilet humour tonight, let me see if I can copy and paste it, I thought it was quite amusing.

PUBLIC toilet users. When you realise the person in the next cubicle is holding fire until you leave, simply open and close the toilet door without leaving. Their first plop can then be greeted with a huge cheer.

They were, not anymore. New toilets are normal. Rumor has it, it was this way so they could double check whether not anything of worth was flushed in case you swallowed objects (like a ring or something) the night before and donot remember. :-/

It gives more privacy than these, which are near Central;

They look portable. I hope they won't blow over with wind!
