    I had to use a toilet like that once in Europe on a boat. It had little handles to hold on to. It was disgusting... but at least there was toilet paper oh gawd.

    He was trying to be like Borat on purpose, right? RIGHT?

    I`ve never used a squatty potty, but it sure looks like an adventure. Not sure how I feel about having to wipe my ass with my hand. If I ever travel to India, I don`t think I could bring myself to poop the whole time O__o

    The water may clean you booty better than toilet paper, but that`s still just so disgusting. After multiple people use that soap to wash their hands, it`s not a very clean bar of soap anymore. That`s so nasty to think about >-(

    I was in Estonia a few years ago and the people I stayed with had a toilet that was basically a funnel that came out of the ground with a pitcher of water next to it. I wish I had seen a youtube video on how to use it before being confronted with such an oddity.

    A friend and I went traveling to Egypt and while on a 4 day boat tour (very very small uncovered boat)we both ran into the situation which we had to poop very badly but had no toilet paper. He decided to go..... in the nile.. literally. Whereas I held it. It was probably the most unpleasant experience of my life... boiling hot, covered in flies and sweat, and having to poop for 3 days. and now you know my shame.

    that`s disgusting. why would you touch your butt after pooping, how is that better than toilet paper, really? because at least then you don`t touch fecal matter directly. unless you`re using half-ply toilet paper, in which case, layer a S**T-TON before you wipe...

    i just don`t comprehend.

    If it`s clean, why is touching/eating with the left hand so taboo? We don`t have any problems eating or touching with either hand over here, as our hands don`t come in contact with our own fecal matter on a regular basis.

    Also, as someone else has pointed out, how does your back side get dry?

    Lastly, I had heard that India was not a nice place to visit if you`re not ready for it. I don`t think I want to go there now. I know that they have an amazing culture and a long history, but I like my toilet paper and liquid hand soap.

    it is kinda gross but so is smearing your own poo acrosse ure butt, it leaves ure butt cleaner and poo does wash off hands.
    im a toilet paper fan myself but i wouldn`t be so grossed out i wouldn;t do it. you have to remeber there arent many trees in india, toilet paper would cost a fortune.

    and to the guy who said "hes ascting like borat on purpose right?

    no hes not, where i live we have alot of east indians. ive met people just like him. hes stylin and a real talker, he could pick up all the ladies. i bet he drives an old mercedes

    Something that I`ve always found funny about the west views on this (BTW I`m from the UK) is that we think cleaning our behind with paper is somehow clean.. would you us paper to wash you hands in general even with out "waste" on it? Nope... So really they`re not so backwards as it may first seem, but hey a pair of rubber gloves would go a long way. lol

    I gotted even more bored and finally pushed play... and it`s not as disgusting a method than I thought it was. But I`d have to carry around my own post-doody cleaning kit, with my own soap and finger scrubbing brush, and then I`d have to scrub, and scrub, and scrub... and finish off with a good few pumps of alcohol based hand sanitizer.

    Erm.
    Ok, quick description from me.

    1) Not all toilets are like this first of all, that is pretty disgusting.

    As someone from roughly that part of the world though, let me explain: We have hairy asses. There is nothing that toiletpaper will do to my ass to get it clean. It`s like trying to clean peanut butter out of shag carpet or a bearskin rug.
    Toiletpaper isn`t going to cut it.

    Hence, almost all toilets in the UAE at least, have a bidet next to them, or in public restrooms, a hose.

    This is necessary.

    Ok, no more details from me.

    In some areas in the middle east they have a typical western toilet but like a sprinkler/tiny shower head thing for washing + there is the toilet paper.

    So optimally it`s wash then dry with toilet paper.

    The wiping method is inferior and dirty and just remember if you`re a wiper that sometimes there is a little poop possibly in your pants.

    It`s not like there is anything horrific about touching fecal matter- especially your own- as long as you wash it off afterwards- it`s not like the bacteria will bore into your skin or anything. I think I`d have trouble adjusting to using an Indian toilet, but there`s nothing unhygenic about it as long as you scrub your hands afterwards. Anyone here who`s a parent has gotten poop on their hands.

    I wipe, just like most Americans, but every once in a while, I`ll eat some super spicy food.

    And have what`s called "fireass" or "firesh*t", where it just flat out drating hurts to wipe with dry toilet paper. It`s like pooting acid.

    In that case, wetwipes, or even a bidet would be flat out wonderful.

    Let me mention now, that India has notoriously spicy food.

    Sucks to be a left hander visiting India. I wonder what the reaction is when you lose your left arm there?

    Meh, whatever. In Thailand they have the same squat toilets, but they still use paper. You just can`t flush the paper, you have to throw it in the garbage. They do have western style toilets as well though, especially in places like Bangkok.

    "Shave your ass?"

    Erm. Yeah. Except this:

    That is me about 3 hours after shaving. (Notice stubble).

    This is what I look like after 2 weeks:


    My ass has similar wolverine-like properties. My ass would begin tearing up paper like... well... tissue paper.

    Also, look, a bidet just wins anyway. There`s no circumstance where a bidet is inferior for cleaning.

    Nothing to do then with 20% of the population (about 250 million people), not having access to clean drinking water Crakrjak? Seriously, it`s because they all have sh*t all over their hands?

    You never cease to entertain, crakr.

    "And Baalthahairyzak, entirely too much information brother!"

    I know, I know, but seriously. I *can`t* go back to using just dry toilet paper (I use wet wipes in the UK). It`s just not a feasible endeavor.

    The simplest route to explaining that is to be very blunt.

    very very clean, except when you just - erm - `went` all over your feet and ankles due to the bad curry the night before...

    First of all, when you squat like that, you don`t really end up with a lot of poo on your bum bc ur pooing in a more natural position. No other animal other than humans goes poo while sitting down. The rest of the animal kingdom squats! So, basically you`re just washing off whatever little residue may be there.
    And CrakrJak, there`s nothing in that Wiki article that says anything about typhoid in India being related to washing with water as opposed to using toilet paper. I`m sure typhoid in developing countries has more to do with water quality control than anything. People aren`t stupid. Nobody`s going to touch their butt and then go eat some food without making sure they are clean.

    @ han5nah:
    It`s one thing that you`re a racist, but thanks a lot for at least showing what a `tard you are as well. "I have Indians" Really? What on Earth are you doing with them!?

    people have been wiping with their left hand for centuries, thats why you shake with your right. Royalty use to use lace instead of their hands.

    nunki: Nobody`s going to touch their butt and then go eat some food without making sure they are clean.

    That happens more often than you think, E. Coli, Thyphus, Diarrhea, Hepatitis, Cholera, and many others can all be spread through feces & improper/insufficient hand washing.

    Did you see a sink in that restroom to wash hands in ? No. Did you see any paper or towels to dry hands off with ? No. Was the communal soap he was using even clean itself ? No.

    `Nuff said.

    I too shall step in and provide some clarifications:

    1. a majority of the toilets you`d find in cities would be western, and if you are visiting india, i`d assume you are living in a hotel. hotels always have toilet paper.
    2. there`s no such taboo associated with using your left hand for other things, not in cities at least.
    3. remove the bigger particles of your sh*t without touching, by just throwing water on your butt.
    4. the way with the soap is that you use your right hand to touch the soap to make a foam, and then clean the dirty hand with the foam. also, you don`t use that soap for when you are taking a shower.

    All said and done, I would like to conclude by saying that I use toilet paper, because it doesn`t make a mess in my bathroom.

    >>Well, I guess I`m never going to India. I`m left handed and I am assuming no one would be my friend.

    Whoa! Never thought about this. Lefties would be screwed.

    It seems strange to me that Indian culture advocates that you avoid contact with left hands, yet locals spend so much time pressing their hands together (so anything on the left hand would be transferred to the right anyways) , that the entire exercise is pointless.

    this was facinating and discusting in equal measure.

    When can we see some more "sh*tting in other countries". Would be a great series, like "Bazar food" but "Bazar ways to sh*t".

    This isn`t bad, really. It`s your own waste, and you`re just cleaning it right off. At least they really make the effort to get it clean. When you think about it, a lot of people who use Western toilets are probably less sanitary, actually, because, at least here in the U.S., there are tons of people who don`t wash their hands afterwards. But even those who do.... Why is that? Oh, right. It`s because we may have gotten waste on our hands in the process. So, with either method, you risk coming in contact with a person who`s gotten some `bathroom material` on them. I think, if you do your business correctly, both methods should be sanitary, lol.

    And that is why they have MRE bags full of s*** and piss-bottles everywhere.

    You`re not supposed to shake hands with your left anyway, so those bad etiquette people deserve it!!

    Note to self: If you ever visit India... do not poop.

    Dominican Republic has basic out-houses which is just a hole, a structure which has a "toilet", and... a door. Exactly like regular toilets but without water. Hold your nose. :U
