The Japanese Squatter Style.

I have to say I have had some of the most memorable shits in Japan, even to the point of the Robo Bog seat which amazingly was heated and had an automated Butt hose which protruded from the seat to gently hose the butt with luke warm water.....very cleansing (after the initial shock and having the a jet of water spray up my back!) Far better than the ultrapowerful human haggis version encounted in Thailand! werd..

Oh man! I recognize that toilet! Many an exciting afternoon was spent contemplating life and the mysteries of the universe while I braced myself with arms against the stall walls to either side. I actually developed my balance to the point where I could read the paper or play my gameboy whist making a deposit at the bank. It's a pity both men's rooms are so close to the student walkways, and that Kamisho often insists on leaving the large window open wide to the parking lot.

As to the ... extra aroma... yeah, we all begin to notice that. Considering that my diet hasn't changed all that much, I stand by the theory that it has more to do with the complete and utter lack of a water reservoir under your bum. water absorbs a large portion of the fragrance. It's simple logic.

And its such a hassle to clean porcelain that hasn't had a splashdown pool for rocket entry. ESPECIALLY in the winter.

I can confirm that lack of water is responsible. On occasions when even the depth of water in a western commode has proved to be insufficient for the circumstances, I have observed an increase in ambient aroma that sometimes borders on shocking. All other factors were constant.
