Hi,
After 9 years of going solo to the picnic I have decided this year to bring the significant other :o She is a bit of a germ-o-phobe and lived a sheltered life of clean toilets, never having to use a portaloo before.

So my question is does anyone know what times the portaloo's get cleaned? Is there a schedule or is it more adhoc? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also if the comfie crappers are back this year then do people know the opening / closing times of these?

Cheers

I know I've seen them get a full clean down and powerhose early enough in the morning but they do get a bit of a clean during hte day as well. You'll need to use the campsite ones at some stage but best bet for finding a cleaner one is usually body and soul they seem to get used less for some reason.

Tell her she should just accept the festival toilets, because she's already dead.

Tell her to take a massive dump before she leaves on Friday.

Then your time in the portaloo could be kept to a bare minimum, or bring a shewee.

You're welcome.

@lordpercy - Thanks for the info, I do remember being woken up the odd time with the panda trucks at mad hours (5-6am) but couldn't be sure when it was, for all I know it could have been 1pm and I went to sleep only a few hours before haha. Good tip about the body and soul I do remember them being cleaner.

@Dick Jones - your ideas intrigue me and I would like to subscribe to your newsletter

@Voidoid - Will do

@Gatsby - Already bought the laxatives to do a clear out before she goes, also ordered a load of she-pees so she can try get a piss possey going with the girls in the group, the rest of the girls are hardened veterans so they don't mind the toilets at all, you never know she could be reborn when she gets down there and embrace the picnic ways.

Get in as soon as the main area opens every day.

Other option is to camp at the very back of the campsite, they're usually the best camping toilets. Or walk to them if she's that much of a germaphobe.

You could always use the weekend away to experiment with golden showers and scatology that way she won't need to go near the portaloos

What time does the main arena open at? Never been up that early, never even used the showers before, the more i think about it, i realise it will be me that has the problem this year. I'll be ditching her and trying to find you guys/girls to have a normal stress free picnic.

As for sexual acts in the camp site, i heard sex at the picnic is intense.... get it IN-TENTS... damn I was doing so well until that pun.

Well, some very clever people at Numberphile have devised a formula to help you find the nicest of the lot.Anyone who’s ever used a portable toilet knows how unpleasant they are. Between the stench and the general lack of hygiene,

Speaking of clever people, lets try get a movement going (see what i did there) on social media to let EP know that guys shit too! No matter how many pissers you have, 5 shitters just doesnt cut the mustard. #menpooptoo

thinking outside the box I see. I might be going out on a limb here but I don't think 20,000+ elective surgeries for colostomy bags is an easier solution then bringing back some poopers for the dudes.

Although last year mid day on the friday i was in the queue for the bogs and the two young lads behind me were talking about how they just need a piss but their not going to the trough thing because "everyone can see your tackle" ... sigh, they should be allowed queue for the womens #menhavebodyissuestoo

ptl, you can stay.

Couple of my ladypals have a system they swear by for portaloos - if they're arranged in a square formation, go for the cornermost one.

Apparently people tend to avoid the corner jacks, because subconsciously they're perceived as unclean to begin with.

Meaning nine times out of ten they're in better nick than the rest of them.

Head torches are your only man for a portaloo. .
At least then you can see where the shite is
