"Open" Outdoor toilets for guys

Outdoor toiletThree outdoor toilets for males with no walls but equipped with a waist-level filtering a man's buttocks and waist from view have been found on popular Foreigners Street in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality, and sparking controversy over their bold design.

With its design originating from the UK, the rounded four-urinal toilet occupies an area of two square meters. Each urinal has a 50-centimeter screen to block the user's buttocks from the gaze of passers-by.

The environment-friendly toilet is made of withered grass and charcoal ashes and only costs 1,000 yuan (US$128), said Lu Xiaoqing, designer of the toilet.

"Just pull open the screen. It's easy and convenient and the height suits both men and children," said Lu.
