In 1991, SNL unveiled the prototype for The Love Toilet. Almost two decades later, the dream has finally been realized: presenting The Love Seat Toilet and the TwoDaLoo.

The TwoDaLoo features optional LCD screens. Now, forgive my ignorance, because none of my intimate moments have included mutual defecation, but doesn't watching TV together kind of diminish the romance of the moment? Or is there a Coprophilia Channel I'm not getting on my cable network?

They really should have called it The Blumkin™.

Or would that be the double-decker space saver model?

[TwoDaLoo] brings couples closer together and conserves our water supply all with one flush. The TwoDaLoo features two side-by-side toilet seats with a modest privacy wall in between. An upgraded version includes a seven inch LCD television and iPod docking station.

I'm not sure how two separate bowls would be flushed with the same water, if not for some complex pump mechanism. And wouldn't the LCD television and iPod docking station defeat the goal of bringing couples closer together?

"Hey, honey, I know I haven't been really open with you, and you know I spend a lot of time on the toilet, so I was thinking this could become some Us time instead of just Me time. Well, unless there's a good game on TV, then it can be like the rest of our time together, except instead of being on a couch, we'd be on awkward toilets. And it's a bargain at $1,400! Honey? Did you hear me? Wait, why are you driving away? Are you going to get the toilet already? I don't think it's at Home Depot yet. Honey?"

Here's a video link for those getting an ip-based OH NO YOU DON'T! from Comedy Central. NSFW-possible--it turned on a Google search.

I hate the current toilet design. Is this really the most comfortable we can be when crappin?

There's a gas station out in western Virginia with a restroom that is a single small room with two toilets facing each other. I can't say that I've ever actually seen two people enter or leave it together.

Seeing as much of the world squats directly over a hole (or in-floor bowl sort of thing), I imagine there's some sort of via media.

"Why don't you go first?"
"No you go first!"
"No you!"
"No you go first!"
"Ok I'm going!"

Ahh, love in its early movements. One can only wonder how long it could last...

So back when I was a Boy Scout I went on a 10 day backcountry hike at Philmont Scout Ranch. Most of the camps were semi-improved with latrines, usually tucked away out of sight and sometimes the ones with no walls had a nice view. They came in two varieties: pilot to copliot where the two users would sit side-by-side, and pilot to bombardier, a somewhat less awkward arrangement where the users would be back-to-back. I think there was just one time where one was used to capacity by people in my group.

I didn't get that joke. Now I get it. Someone help me un-get it, please.

They should do this concept for public urinals in men's restrooms where you could pee face-to-face with a stranger.

In 1988 it was possible to experience the satisfaction of taking a dump with an amiable companion at Herb & Sia's Motel in Pago Pago, American Samoa. I arrived in AmSam late at night, checked in to the largely empty motel (it being the off season), and headed to the communal bathroom. As I was brushing my teeth, a bleary glance in the mirror showed two toilets behind me, congenially arranged side-by-side affording both users easy reach of the toilet paper. After a spit-take, I made sure the outer door to the bathroom was locked.

"Dump" is a particularly appropriate word in the context of this joint. The shag carpet in my room was olive green, except under the table where it was bright orange. I always thought filthy orange carpet would turn brown or black, but apparently it turns olive green. Whoulda thunk? And the reviewer says the place has gone downhill recently - that's an achievement! Didn't find anything about the bathroom facilities, alas. LOVE the title, not_on_display!
