This is bizarre.
When I was in China, most bathrooms I saw were basically glorified (or actual) pits that you squatted over. (Once it was a room you were meant to aim into, but I don't think that hotel got many women guests.)
If you went to a nice place, like the teahouse I taught English in, there was a western-style toilet. But inevitably when you went to sit down on it, there were shoe-marks. The Chinese women who had come before you had, adorably, no idea what to do with the seat and had just done what they were used to.
A lot of us foreigners used to chuckle over that one.
Then, today, I ran into this:
If you're daring, consider this: Squat on the rim of the toilet in your bare or stocking feet while you eliminate. "Squatting straightens the recto-anal angle and opens it more fully so elimination is much easier," says yoga practitioner Richard Ravizza, Ph.D., a psychology professor at Pennsylvania State University in Scranton. "You could think of it as straightening a partially kinked garden hose."
Apologies for introducing the term "recto-anal angle" into your day, incidentally.
