It’s happened to us all: you’re walking down a sun-kissed sidewalk, when all of a sudden you need a bathroom, and you need it fast. The cafe with the somewhat filthy bathroom won’t let you use it unless you’re a paying customer, and you don’t want or need anything. Bathroom emergencies are very real and truly terrifying, so that’s why AirPNP was created, to, y’know, find you a place to sit your bum down.
It works exactly like AirBNB, but for pooping. People can list their clean, user-friendly bathrooms for a one-time use rate. For example, to use what is owner-described as a New York City “Porcelain Palace,” it will cost you $3 (USD) – mirror included. Meanwhile, in Toronto, Adam B offers a “Modern Bathroom and Shower” for $25 (USD), with a $10 surcharge if you require soap, towels and shampoo. Once you’ve tried out a water closet, users are encouraged to “rate their pee experience afterwards, so others can see how each restroom stacks up.”
What a time to be alive, right? But, seriously, would you let strangers frequent your fortress of solitude?
