How to use an Asian squat toilet: Flexibility is key
Most Westerners have never used an Asian squat toilet. If you were working or traveling in the East and suddenly found yourself in a moment of... urgency, would you know what to do? Don't worry: Andy and Toto have got your back with this educational and entertaining video.
Note that squat toilets aren't just an Asian thing: I encountered my first squat toilet in Paris during the mid-Nineties.
The most important thing to remember is to plant your heels. That way you won't fall in. Don't get weirded out by the experience: squat toilets can be fun. Also, you'll spend far less time dropping that deuce than had you used a throne-style loo.
Once you master the basics, you can move on to the next level: using a squat toilet on a moving train. Remember that balance.
Oh, and another thing to remember: you cannot pull off white workboots like Andy does in the video shown here. Don't even try.
The one-square method demonstrated at the end is also useful if backpacking in the woods and you either run out of toilet paper or want to go full-on minimum impact. The extra step of tearing off the tip, though, is pure genius.
