Okay, at the risk of derailing another thread, I thought I'd start a new one all about... erm... toilets.
So... Asian style squatting toilets. I travel a lot in Asia, and it would be really handy to know how to use them, but I'm too scared to try!
I need details.. how do you do it?
I cannot squat really low to the ground while keeping my heels on the ground. I have Japanese friends that can do that all day. DD does it! But I read somewhere that we lose that ability around 9 years old, IF we don't do it regularly.
So, if I squat LOW (as in, near the ground, NOT an exercise type of squat) then it's a wobbly heels up affair, where my bum is directly over my heels - NOT good for those types of toilet.
So exactly how do you position yourself?
Aaand... what about your clothes? How do you avoid getting them?
They had those toilets in Moscow, and I saw very well dressed ladies in stillettoes and skinny jeans going in there. I have no idea how. Do you have to take all your clothes off???
Thank you, if you can help with my very important questions.
