Ew. Talking about poo is always a sure-fire way to end a conversation quicksmart, but discussing a better way to evacuate it from your bowels is just a whole new level of dirty.

But that's exactly what's on the mind of designer Nelson Ayala, who designed this motorcycle-inspired toilet to promote better bathroom hygiene. The idea is that the sportsbike-like stance enables the, uh, 'rider' to use the toilet whilst avoiding any unsanitary arse-to-seat contact - a major concern for public restroom-shy clean freaks.

The 'fairings' are lined with padding and the forward leaning position should take much of the strain off the legs - but it's not exactly dignified is it?

Having someone mistakenly walk in while you're on the crapper is embarassing enough, but imagine the screeching that would ensue if someone were to inadvertently bust in on you using this contraption. Not pretty.

Not to worry though, for the moto-shitter is just a concept for the time being. You can relax your glutes now.
