"If it's yellow, let it mellow; if it's brown, flush it down." (Ed Koch, NYC Mayor)
Both at work and also in my studies at Teachers College, and other places, I have never had an office. I improvise. My office has often been a stall in the men's room. Of course I "relieve myself" there. But I spend a lot more time than that, while sitting on the toilet: reading aka studying. This, of course, requires privacy, but I do not voluntarily use the men's room where there is no personal privacy, because I do not believe in the hypocrisy of same-gender exposure of genitals where homosexuality is not considered natural. For that and other reasons, my office needs to have a door (above).
Professor Martin Heidegger wrote about "Being-in-the-world". I have reflected on: Being-on-the-toilet. Practical metaphysics. The Bible says we should let our light so shine before men that they may see our good works (Matt 5:16). Diogenes of Sinope acted on that premise in satisfying an instinctual urge.

And now (+2022.04.09) I read about a novel "The bathroom" (Jean-Philippe Toussaint) about a man so alienated from people that he lives in his bathroom. Too expensive for my anticipated cost-benefit ratio at over $40 when it should be an inexpensive paperback. But the idea still seems good to me. King Louis XIV lived in Versailles palace and I'm not sure he even had a bathroom.
I (BMcC[18-11-46-503]) am afraid of being trapped in a bathtub: too close to being dead for comfort; in the shower I'm still on my own two feet. When my mother bathed me as a small child in the bathtub, it was always a defensive struggle for me against my attacker. She apparently never thought,concern bathing or doing anything else to me: "Is it really necessary to put this child through this?"
