Is it possible that being head over heels in love could make pooping a couple activity too?
When you're in love, you want to do everything with your significant other. Some couples may even end up spending every waking moment with each other, something that became inevitable during the lockdown for some people. This honeymoon phase of a relationship is great. You get comfortable with the other person and soon, you are in each other's personal space at all times. While it's not unheard of for couples to leave the door unlocked while taking a dump, how comfortable can two people really get with each other? Is it possible that being head over heels in love could make pooping a group activity too?
There have been pictures of "couple toilets" making rounds on the internet. It looks like a conversation chair but where there would be cushions, there are two toilet seats. On one hand, it may come as a relief that it is actually from a Saturday Night Live sketch from 1991. Titled, "The Love Toilet," the skit "for couples who are so in love that they must do everything together." It starred Kevin Nealon and Victoria Jackson. It featured in Season 17 of SNL and was as hilarious as you would think a ridiculous product like that would be.
The ad starts with, "When you find that special someone, you never want to be apart. You dine together, you play together, you sleep together, you even bathe together, so why not share the most intimate moments of them all, with, The Love Toilet." It goes onto talk about the exquisite design and porcelain it is made of as well as the shared flush between the two toilets. Sure, it's a dig at those couples who seem to be connected at the hip and would even find this a great product. And that's where the flipside comes in. That this actually exists in real life.
The toilet is called Twodaloo and looks a lot like the toilet from the SNL parody. It is not clear if it drew inspiration from the parody or if inspired it. The company actually even made sales and according to Gizmodo, sold it for $1,400 a piece. It was marketed as a "super toilet" created to "save rocky marriages and the planet." The maker of the toilet claimed that a single flush would save water. That would actually not make sense since water would have to still fill both the bowls. Unless your bowel movements have synced with your partner's, it would cause more water wastage than save water. It apparently even came with a 7-inch LCD TV and an iPod docking station. So much for fixing rocky marriages. Even though the toilet was something that was being sold a while ago, the company's domain name, wiserep.com has since expired, according to Oddity Mall. That business idea certainly went down the toilet. But if it was an elaborate joke, then it could be considered a job well done.

But poop can bring couples together. For instance, it is believed that couples who can openly discuss pooping are actually the happiest couples, as per Huffington Post. Calling it the "poop conversation," it is when there is an open dialogue about a couple's bowel movements and what to expect. While it could be hilarious, it could also bring a couple together because of sharing these intimate details. As the article states: Everybody poops. Also, everybody deserves happiness. Therefore, from a logical standpoint, everybody deserves to be able to talk about poop with the person who makes them the happiest.
