Who tf would want see through toilets?! No fucking thank you, gimme my privacy. TMI

You can still see him through the window. What kind of perv came up with this idea? Who else has dreams like this? You really have to pee, but all the bathrooms are open (or extremely filthy).

It's all fun and games until the whole thing malfunctions mid-poop.

I saw this in several hotels and restaurants in New York in the mid 1990s. No big deal.

Well, at least they're not shitting in a hole in the floor anymore.

Japan allows almost no immigration.

These need immigration to mitigate their population decline

Japan was the first place I saw a guy take a piss while completely engrossed in texting on his phone. It was in a subway men's room (very clean, BTW). He stood next to me, dick hanging out while he never took his eyes off his phone, frantically typing away, which allowed me to appreciate his lovely penis without him noticing me appreciating his lovely penis. Impressive aim too, never got his shoes wet. The texting went on longer than the peeing, so he just let it dangle while he typed, completely oblivious to the line of men patiently waiting behind him.

[quote] These [sic] need immigration to mitigate their population decline

Nope. It's called automation and taxing robot output with a VAT. And maybe temporary foreign workers kept far away from the general populace, like in Qatar and Singapore (Is that immigration?).

It's a very densely populated country in the areas where people can actually live (the flat area). It shouldn't have to be that way forever just because a huge workforce was helpful during industrialization.

God forbid other countries enjoy a little space. Western motherfuckers, man, always screaming "demographic crisis" because they can't imagine a country enjoying fewer people and no immigration.

R2, you only see his silhouette when the walls became opaque. Isn't that enough privacy for you?

It's big enough for many people at one time.

You could sell tickets to watch the Blue Man Group in their latest: 'Orgy-in-silhouette.'

Performance art or perversion? Who cares.

The ones you have in the US are already pretty much see-through, with the gaps between the door and wall, and the way they don’t reach the ground.

by Anonymousreply 18Last Thursday at 8:57 AM

They become opaque upon locking the door you puritanical Frau prudes.

Whenever I return to NYC from Japan or Switzerland (or most of Europe for that matter) I feel like I landed in an under-medicated psych ward.

by Anonymousreply 21Last Thursday at 9:44 AM

You can still see the person's shadow, so does that mean especially hung guys will draw a crowd?

by Anonymousreply 22Last Thursday at 9:49 AM

R4 - were you ever in the Thai place in the Village that had restroom walls made of one-way mirror? As you sat on the toilet you could see the entire restaurant.

I've seen these in the US. There's this boutique-type hotel in Durham, North Carolina that has restrooms like these in the public areas. But they weren't so opaque - you couldn't even see a silhouette once the occupant locked the door.

I'm wondering if these Japanese ones have a time limit. You wouldn't be as likely to do something illicit in one of these (e.g., shoot drugs) if you knew everyone would be able to see you in five minutes.

by Anonymousreply 26Last Thursday at 12:05 PM

The toilet is far enough away from the glass to not reveal a silhouette. Brilliant design.

by Anonymousreply 27Last Thursday at 12:12 PM

I like the time limit idea. If you can't shit and wipe up in two minutes the lights come on and onlookers get to point and jeer!
