    So, I experienced this while traveling once and I was mortified. MORTIFIED
    such that I just held it for hours! Stupid question, but what do I do with
    my pants?! Am I to pull them down and off? One leg?! I was just so stunned
    I didn’t know what to do. Oh the misery! lol I held it until we got back to
    the hotel! We are so spoiled here in America. We should be thanking God for
    our toilets everyday!!!!

    The question in the back of every westerner’s mind: “What if I miss?”

  3. BrooklyntoBrixton

    Why would you wear flip flops in there?!

    Interesting, I’ll probably be traveling overseas at different points in my
    life for Mountain Climbing, Africa, Tibet,China,India and Russia.. makes me
    shudder thinking of what everyone uses compared to the US…

    This is giving me a panic attack. I have a honeymoon in Thailand in two
    months, and I’m only just finding out now about this… this…
    MONSTROSITY. *shudders*

    Informative video, Christine! Glad you don’t judge, even though squats
    aren’t your cultural background.

    You often find a squat toilet in cafes in Paris, and most of those are
    labeled “American Standard”. It’s strange you dumb yankee claiming it ugly.

    Oh my.

    Initially I was scared of the #squat #toilet but after time, it’s gotten to
    be one of my favorite types of toilets out there.

    Here’s part 1 of toilet tips! Any questions, ask ’em!

    Good video. I hate those things. As a tall guy who is anything but
    flexible, my tendons are actually so tight that I can’t squat flat footed
    and end up cramping up if I’m in that position for too long. I loath them.
    Good walk through though!

    I actually heard somewhere that we evolved to go number 2 in that position,
    so the squat position is actually better for us and makes us go easier. I
    don’t remember where I read that, but it makes sense. And they also said
    that the sit-down toilet (is that what it’s called?) makes it harder for us
    to go and can actually cause problems. They go on to say doctors recommend
    that we lean forward when we go.

    Don’t know how accurate my information is, but it kind of makes sense. The
    only problem is that my knees hurt and legs go numb if I use those for an
    extended period of time.. and cleaning up feels a bit awkward, too.

    Nice video! I’ve never seen one that is self-recorded shot so well. Nice
    job! Can I ask what you shot it on?

    You know, I’ve never heard them called “Asian” before. Just squats.

    The problem for westerners is that it’s hard for us to sit like that. We
    collapse backwards in that pose. Try it.

    When I lived in Morocco foreigners called them the “turkish toilet”!
    I feel like you’re not a youtuber in Asia unless you have one of these
    videos though. haha I made mine recently! 😛 -R
