Feeling Embarrassed When Peeing?

After you read the title of this article, what is your answer about that question?
In Japan, many Japanese women said yes to that question. They feel embarrassed during their urination. Why? Some of them said they feel embarrassed because of the sound that will be heard by others. Even some of them are doing a continuously flush, during their urination to cover up the sound of it. This is really interesting and a little bit silly I think. Is that really necessary to do it? There is just a sound during your urination, why they should be embarrassed?
Luckily, nowadays, Japan has so many functions on their toilet, such as for the solution of this matter. They have “The Sound Princess” or usually known as “Otohime” in Japan.

Who made this function then? I bet you know about the most well known brand, TOTO. How it works then? This function may be either a separate battery-operated device attached to the wall of the toilet, or included in an existing washlet. Just pressing one button activates this function, or maybe waving of a hand in front of the sensor activates some of them. After it, this function can create a loud flushing sound similar to a toilet being flushed.

The purpose of making this function to their toilets is to save up the use of the water. As I said before, Japanese women even do a continuously flush during their urination. So, it is estimated that from this function, we can save up about 20 liters of water per use.
Unfortunately, some of Japanese women prefer to do a continuously flush than use this function.
