Be careful what you wish for

Some of you may have seen me tweet my farewell to Tokyo. It's true that the toilets in Japan are captivating, however I can honestly say I didn't see it coming. I did not expect to receive one for my birthday.

Crash got it installed today, and Charlie needed to be accompanied for his first use - he was deeply distrustful.

If you are now wondering what the hell I am talking about, here is the website of the manufacturer. (Although ours has been slightly modified for Australia, I'm told.)

The manual is a joy (and essential).

Some excerpts:

1. Press "Feminine Wash": Automatically, the nozzle comes out and sprays warm water to the feminine area.
2. Additional functions during your Feminine Wash are available. See Oscillation and Massage for details.

And later:

When using Posterior or Feminine Washing functions, pressing the "MOVE" button will provide a short-motion, front to back oscillating spray for a much wider cleansing experience. Note: This function will not work during the "Turbo Wash" or "Enama Wash" function.

Yep, you read that (dodgy spelling) right. If you are at my house, consider yourself warned. This is a symbol not to be messed with.


  1. Wow, i can just imagine being half-asleep early in the morning and pushing the wrong button, might wake you up really fast :-)

  2. Fortunately Crash bought the model which has a remote control module, which is the only thing with the dreaded "Turbo" button on it. The one on the loo itself has no Turbo button, so as long as you use it in the middle of the night, you're safe. :)
