Poop thread that works

You need to buy one and do a review.

That makes sense. As someone who has had issues in this area, I have been using a footstool for years in the same manner. I had no idea there was science to back it up, I just knew it worked for me.

When I was applying to work in Asia, one of my fears was squat toilets.


I assumed I would just shit all over the back of my shorts.

Stool thread.

I just went through something like this on vacation - the hotel's toilets were an inch or two higher, which made a noticeable negative difference.

I don't know that product but Nature's Platform works well (http://www.naturesplatform.com/). You don't have to listen to all that stuff about how modern toilets cause appendicitis and colon cancer. Just try some options and see what works best for you.

They don't have to turn it into some epic clash of cultures.

That website says the squatty potty is bad and doesn't have a rhyming name.

I call bullshit.

No matter how stupid an idea is, you will be able to find many thousands who will embrace it, and swear by it.

Don't get me started on the toilet habits of other cultures. Been there, motherfucking done that.
Link Posted: 7/20/2013 4:22:25 PM EST
I suppose I could create flush-able targets that are placed on the floor that would serve the same purpose. "Shit-N-See" or "Squat-N-Shit".

I admit I don't know squat about this though.

I grew up in SE Asia, the only toilets to be found were squat pots.
Link Posted: 7/20/2013 4:33:50 PM EST
having lived in asia, I do admit that while there my bowl movements were satisfying and I had no issues (other than too spicy food). Till now I attributed that to the diet, but this is another valid theory.
Link Posted: 7/20/2013 4:35:21 PM EST
IIRC Doctor Oz also mentioned something about squatting being good.

No, under the other arm you have your electric wipe warmer. I guess you missed that thread.

I suppose you could get a backpack for your lunch.

Colorectal surgeon at work is always preaching about the detriments of western toilets

When I take a dump in the wild, I find it goes a lot better than when using a toilet. I've even come to prefer it.

I just improvised with a couple of paint cans, and I can attest that the concept is sound.

The experience was very satisfying, and required minimal effort.

Thank you for treating this as a minor alternative for a daily task rather than an assault on God and Country.

I would be REALLY interested (okay REALLY not that interested ) to know what their rates of colon issues or bowel area issues are compare to western toilets.

Note that in the Nature's Platform approach all of your weight is on your feet. Just pointing out that these are two different options.
Link Posted: 7/20/2013 6:55:14 PM EST
MOST IMPORTANTLY

Does this mitigate the numbness I experience after an extended bowel movement on a western toilet. If I can stand up after a 30 minute BM without pins and needles, I am so motherfucking in on this.
Link Posted: 7/20/2013 6:57:42 PM EST
Ok, so this was posted here a while back and I decided to try it. I lifted up my feet to get the described angle, but I neglected to check where my manhood was pointed and I ended up pissing on the wall in front of me.

Next you'll tell me I need to wipe my ass with my hand instead of toilet paper.

Besides, I'm not sure any of these 400lb behemoths can squat.

I take it you've never gone hunting and shit in the woods

I try to use a tree as a brace but I've done the ol' squat in the desert and my fears, much like yours, were relieved when I saw that I had not, in fact, shit on boots, pants, or anything else.

Hearing them fall while trying to squat on a soaking wet port-a-john is still funny as shit; no pun intended.
