Squatting while Defecating?

Anyone figure out how to do this with western toilets? I've wanted to give this a try for awhile (without having to spend $50 + shipping for some contraption). Supposed to be much healthier.

Perhaps a home made option?

put a stool in front of your toilet unless you've got a rock solid atg squat and can squat on the edge. ;-)

Re: Squatting while Defecating?

I'm assuming defecating while squatting isn't an option for you??

I'd try but I've only just convinced them to let me use chalk, don't want to push my luck.

Re: Squatting while Defecating?

Dude, squatting to poo may well be healthier.......until you have the runs!!!
I once had a bad case on a small Indonesian boat. The toilet resembled one of those sweat boxes the Japanese used in POW camps in WW2!! I was in there more than an hour! I have never been more soaked with sweat in my life and had the worst leg cramps!
Love a good poo story!!! I have lots.....

Many toilets in Asia have built in foot plates for that very purpose! I have also seen a man in Bangkok squatting on the edge of a standard western toilet. Impressive I thought!
