Porthcawl is a seaside town in Wales that plans to install public toilets that would spray occupants with water and sound an alarm if they try to be intimate with someone in them.
The doors will automatically be open and they will sound high pitched alarms, and fine water jets will soak the interior of the units.
Yeah, you read that right.
Apparently, there will be weight-sensitive floors that would ensure that only one user can be in a cubicle at a time in order to safeguard against “inappropriate intimate activity and vandalism”.
The town is spending a whopping £170,000 ($206,333) on the futuristic toilets, according to Wales Online.
The documents for the planning detail the whole range of security features, including audible warning, combined with lights being switched off.
The toilets would close for 10 minutes each night while the unit undertakes a deep clean process, and visitors to Porthcawl will have to pay to use the toilets.
The price hasn’t been decided yet.
Expectedly, Twitter users have questioned this ridiculous decision, and they have also questioned some of the technical staff. For example, how would the weight-sensitive floors work in practice?
