Have a Fascinating Personal Experience
or Story about Squatting?

Stories About Squatting serves as a channel for you to share your personal experiences and stories about squatting.

It could be about the time when you, so used to using sitting toilets throughout your entire life, had no choice but to squat when traveling overseas, while outdoors etc.

Or it could be the time when you had to switch from squatting to sitting because of injury or after a change of toilets. Or you simply want to share with others your insights, observations and tips about squatting.

Along with contributions from other visitors (click to see), your sharing of real-life experiences, personal accounts about squatting would immensely enrich the learning experience of others.

I like to take this opportunity to ask you to read about the experience of Shane Bauer. Like most Westerners, Shane never had to squat for bowel movements. However, one day, he found himself in a situation where he had to. His written account of his experience with squatting is so interesting and illuminating that I have devoted a page to his article.

You can read about Bauer's story about squatting on this page.

Last but not least, if you have your own stories about squatting, do share them!

With best regards,
