Would or could you actually use toilets like these with someone next to you?

The news on this has been out since last week.

SOCHI, Russia – It's a tale of two toilets.

When BBC reporter Steve Rosenberg went to use the bathroom at the cross-country skiing and biathlon center for next month's Winter Olympics in Sochi, he found two toilets but only one stall.

His tweeted picture instantly became a national joke.

Although toilets like that are not common in Russia, social media users posted some pictures of other toilets side by side. One said this was standard at Russian soccer stadiums.

Russians jested that the toilets in Sochi were designed for a "tandem," the name used to describe the duo of President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. One blogger altered Rosenberg's photo to put in a framed portrait of the two leaders above the toilets.

The Sochi organizing committee has refused to comment.

I saw that and it is an issue, particularly for women I suspect. You know, there is no problem with that openness when it comes to urinals in the men's room. But I think protocol requires at least a barrier between the toilets especially for women.

I don't know why I am thinking about this, but about twenty years ago or more, they reduced the privacy between toilets at rest stops in Texas due to some rest stop locations being meet up/hook up sites for gay male sexual encounters. So now if you have to take a dump at a rest stop in Texas, there is only a three foot high barrier/wall separating you and the next guy.

Ah....yeah it's an issue. I don't want to nor do I desire, having someone sitting next to me while going. Sometimes it's bad enough going into a public bathroom after someone else had been in there stinking it up.....I swear some people have something rotting inside them with the stink they can leave when they're done let alone have them sitting next to me stinking up the stall. YUK!!!!!

But on the humorous side........can ya just see it? Two people sitting on the john talking about the weather or latest score of whatever game they are watching?

I think I could deal with it, if it was a good looking, sexy lady sitting next to me!
