For many people, peeing is a dreary, unexciting deed—done in office stalls, gas station outhouses, or, in moments of desperation, behind a secluded bush. Even from the comfort of one’s own home, it’s rarely thrilling. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You’ve heard of spicing things up in the bedroom—how about spicing things up in the bathroom?
