Weird & Wonderful toilets ~ 1

I received this via e-mail and after checking on that it was in fact a real toilet and not another one of those made up things that makes it's way around the internet, I decided to share it! I'm sure you've all seen this by now, but it's worth posting anyway.

These are pictures of a real public toilet in Switzerland.

It's made entirely of one way glass, so from the outside it looks like a mirror but from the inside you can see everything. I understand that London also has one. The concept was born from the ideas that we generally don't want people to see us in certain intimate situations, like using the toilet, and that ultimately we are all voyeurs. 

Interesting. I'm willing to bet that this particular toilet is used for some other "intimate" activities more often than not.



  1. OMG! No way would I pee in that! Certainly no pooping! Even though you know no one can see in...just feeling like people are looking at you would induce stage fright.

  2. One I haven't been in yet! That awesome! Love it!

  3. I'd have to go in, that's for sure. I probably would use it. Actually if I had to go and it was available I know I'd use it. But it sure would feel weird!
