Double Entendre and the Design of Public Lavatories. From a recent Wall St. Journal article on the architecture of bathrooms...

"Bathrooms are for more than just relieving the kidneys," says Ian Schrager, owner of 16 boutique hotels in New York, Los Angeles, London and elsewhere. "It's about someone coming out with a smile on their face and wanting to tell their friends about it because it's fun."

As one of the promoters behind Studio 54, I imagine Mr. Scharger is no doubt aware of the double meaning of the above quote. The article is interesting, but of course you need a subscription to read it, as such, I have taken the liberty of posting the article myself without the WSJ's permission.

It appears that there are other places where people flock to public toilets for fun.

By the way, I'm not going to quibble about the legality of copying a page from another site, but posting a link back to the original as well would seem to be good form.

I think you've missed his other double meaning.

Seems to me that your minds are all in the gutter. Sex? Coke? Whatever happened to just enjoying the hell out of pissing?!
