Toilet Sound Blocker Spares You Some Embarrassment, and It’s Earth Friendly!



keitai otohime toilet sound blocker Toilet Sound Blocker Spares You Some Embarrassment, and Its Earth Friendly!



There are some days when the Japanese just blow me away with their brilliance, an this is one of those days. So it turns out that in Japan, the Toto Otohime (“sound princess”) is very common in women’s restrooms. This is essentially a sound blocking machine which spares a woman embarrassment when flushing the toilet. But what is a girl to do if she encounters a restroom without one? The Keitai Otohime Toilet Sound Blocker is a portable version of the Sound Princess that can with the press of a button, be able to mask the noise of your toilet activities. But not only will this small device save you some toilet time awkwardness, but it also has the benefit of being eco-friendly because “Japanese women often flush the toilet to hide embarrassing sounds but as each flush uses up around six liters of water, in these environmentally conscious times, a device like the Keitai Otohime allows you to both be discreet and save the planet.” See, brilliant! The Keitai Otohime Toilet Sound Blocker retails for $36 and is available in two different styles – Ribbon and Forest.

    Or, you could just let ‘er rip and everyone else can admit that everyone makes the same noises so their isn’t anything embarrassing about it and you can save the money! I don’t understand why so many people, primarily women, have such a hang-up about something that is natural and common to everyone. It’s like my brother who refuses to by tampons for his wife because he’s embarrassed as if his wife is the only one who needs them and other guys will be shocked! Get a life! :)

    but wouldn’t the very fact that you hear this noise blocking device mean that everyone else hearing it knows what you’re doing anyway? This only makes sense if the blocking noise occurs in a random pattern. This way, no one will know exactly *WHY* the noise was made!

    wait a sec — this is bullcrap:

    “each flush uses up around six liters of water, in these environmentally conscious times, a device like the Keitai Otohime allows you to both be discreet and save the planet.”

    that water is not “used up” or anything, but simply led back into the natural water cycle. the water is not used up, not poisened, nor anything.
    not flushing a toilet simply has *no* effect of “saving the planet”.

    Save face with sound the Japanese way! Though admittedly, better than flushing. Embarrasment is one emotion the human race can do with a lot less of.

    Do you really think that fresh water is re-processed and delivered to your taps under pressure just by magic?
    Everything we rely on requires a certain amount of energy and resources!

    I am going to have to side with @johnson on this. It DOES take energy to clean/pressurize the water, but we process all of the water equally whether it was flushed or not. The “cost” in money/energy of cleaning a little extra water for flushing is negligable so I would not count it as a real saving.
