Default Japanese toilets.....

......are freaking awesome.

Only this mob could invent an electronic bog. The seat is heated - nice. Need to fart or do a noisy poo? No problem. Press a button and a crappy tune plays to cover your bottom cacophony. Push another button and a jet of warm water shoots up your jacksie, ensuring a squeaky clean finish.

I likey. I want one.

Amazing aren't they, invented in the 1980's I believe (if not before).

In South Korea last year our rather basic hotel had one of those loos and a sauna shower - nice. The his and hers button with different angled water jets was a nice touch - no pun intended.

I'm surprised they haven't taken off in the west.

Those toilets are great. I never found the sound systems to be powerful enough to cover my cacophony.

Now that's a comparison for bogs. The Glastonbury Sunday crapper versus the Japanese toilet.

Yuk!! Although a heated seat in winter would be nice, water squirting my private parts without my control is not what I want- especially in the middle of the night (is the water body temperature, or is it cold?). I am always suspicious of electronic gadgets- the more complicated they are, the more there is to go wrong......imagines burnt bottom and being blown off the toilet by an especially vicious water jet.

You control it. It's not a random surprise squirt.

I've read way too much Terry Pratchett to risk sitting on something like that

It's just...not up my alley....

I rely on a cold seat to wake me in the morning. I mean most of us have warm showers (that is civilised) but warm seats...shear decadence.

Besides: wait for the household/office lingerer to finish then go straight in. The seat will be pre-warmed.

We used to fit loads of them in the U.K for disabled use. We fitted one for a bloke that had lost both his arms, god knows how he pushed the buttons
