How do you prep a public potty prior to pooping?

If you’re like one of many people who avoid going number two anywhere that isn’t your home, then needing to poop while on the go can be a stressful experience. It seems like during the times you need the toilet the most, you’re far away from the comfort of your home and your only option is the filthiest place you’ve ever laid eyes upon. So when it’s an absolute must that you go, how exactly do you prepare the area before you drop your deuce?

Public restrooms are never the most ideal places to take a dump and yet sometimes, we’re just glad they exist because when you gotta go, you gotta go.  Here are a few tips on how to keep things sanitary and help maintain your sanity in the process.

Cover the Seat

Many restrooms come stocked tissue paper seat covers that are seemingly impossible to dispense without at least one tearing, apply without it sliding into the bowl, and…..

If you’re the type who will do anything to ensure your cheeks and thighs never come in contact with the commode, then dress the seat with toilet paper prior to sitting down.
Sustainability gurus may call foul but if they only knew, you don’t give a fuck.

The Squatting Method

Watch for splashback
Possibly the worst thing that could happen to you is to feel the sensation of cold water splash upward and come in contact with your scrotum.
That’s physics, friends. It’s also water that’s probably safe, but in your mind, it’s a cesspool of bacteria. Here’s a pro tip: before you go, simply lay down a square or two right at the center of the water. This will offset the splash or in some cases, the tsunami.
