It probably is, but I'm going to guess that more thinking went into what things can make these toilets do to annoy and kick you. Rather than literally anything else.

The Junior Anti-Sex League would like to remind you that it is prohibited to copulate in defecation facilities, if you forget, you will be reminded via a courtesy alarm, facial purity spray, and a kind dose of public humiliation.

To prevent people from having sex.

Although why anyone would want to do it in a toilet is beyond me.

Maybe to hide the fact that it's with someone of another race from anyone who'd give them shit about it? Checking into a motel is known to tip people off...

Not knowing the specifics of this technology, it's hard to say. But the possibility of a false alarm is and should be shocking.

What if somebody is just not having an easy time of it? They should have known better then to eat at a Mexican restaurant in Wales, but it's too late now. They're probably already having a very bad day. Now suddenly they're blasted with water, and the doors shoot open.

If that happened there be any legal case to round up the manufacturers, installers, etc... of such toilets and charge them collectively with sexual assault for publicly humiliating someone who wasn't doing what the machine accused them of?

What a stupid moral busybody move.
Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

Two pages in... and everybody is pretty much agreeing that "This is fucking stupid!"? Dear gods, NSG agreeing on something?! I SPOTTED A UNICORN!!

And to add my US$0.02: This is fucking stupid. As others have already noted, there's plenty of possibility for false alarms, I rather doubt people having sex in public toilets is such a dire problem to merit wasting that much money on something with that much potential liability, and law enforcement is probably going to place "toilet sexytimes" alarm calls at the absolute bottom of their priority list anyway.

And that's more important than the disabled and the invasions of privacy that will inevitably happen when regular people accidentally set these things off while going potty?

This is a sig-worthy quote if there ever was one.

On the toilets themselves:
This week, I used a stall that couldn't lock or properly seal. On top of that, it was impossible to escape unless you pulled the top of the door inwards. Whenever I see awful designs, I'll always remember that these guys spent an insane effort to make toilets worse (albeit cleaner).

You gotta pay an undisclosed fee to use the "toilets."
For such an huge undisclosed fee, one would expect Hookers to be provided.

THIS is the moral panic. Freeborn women who want to fuck are disrupting the borough council's monopoly of hookers.
