One of the points we highlight on opClarity is that we intend to separate out good and bad reviews. The internet these days is filled with thousands of reviews, none of which anyone knows if it is real or not. Anyhow, we have experts who handpick the best and worst reviews that make sense. So, anyhow, here are some opinions regarding Squatty Potty online.
So, what is my personal experience with the squatty potty? I’ve been using it for about 6 weeks (I wanted to give it a thorough trial run before writing this review). And, as my 6-year old would say, holly smolly guacamole. This thing is ridiculously awesome. It is not natural to love a stool as much as I do, but I can’t help it. It really is more comfortable and easier to go from a squatting position. It doesn’t feel like work (and, at least for me, it used to feel like work more often than not). And, I have overdone sugar in the last 6 weeks (wish I could say that was in order to thoroughly test out the squatty potty, but it’s really just giving into sugar cravings due to being overrun with writing the book) and had the usual response by my body. But, I didn’t have to suffer the severe discomfort of going to the bathroom after my sugar indulgence that I normally do thanks to the squatty potty. Yes, I am very impressed. Actually, I am in love.

Does the Squatty Potty Really Work?
This man is very excited to review his new Squatty Potty.
All right. We’re excited. We just received our Squatty Potty. A Squatty Potty helps you to have better posture on the toilet. I’m going to show you what I’ve been using because I’ve been using the squatting method for a long time. Just found this online and I was like, “A Squatty Potty yeah!” And the price was right. I was like, “Yeah, we’re going to get one of these!” Because we’ve been struggling through with this. I’ve been using the trash can beside my toilet like this and sometimes it’s a little difficult, especially when your pants are at your knees and sometimes something like this happens and your pants are at your knees and you’re trying to put… let me just tell you, it’s bad. So, I’m going to open up the Squatty Potty here. I’m a little excited because it’s the first time I’m getting to see it and demonstrate it….
(1:57) Here it is. Now, you have three kinds that you can get. This is made of wood. Composite wood and it’s painted white. You can also get one that’s a wood grain. And you can also get one that is more of an ergonomically shaped plastic composit. Three different sizes, heights. There’s a five inch, a seven inch and a nine inch. And according to your toilet, how well it will fit. If your toilet is fifteen inches tall they will all fit under there very nicely. It just slides underneath like this. See how it fits away, away from everything? Let me remove this box. All right. It fits neatly under the toilet, out of the way so you don’t trip over it. Ok, three sizes. What we got was the seven inch. We said, we’ll start off with the seven inch and possibly later get the nine inch. We want to see how this fits, start in the middle, that’s what they recommend. So, it basically works like this.
Now, I was talking about India before. I kind of go all over the place. Now, if you go into one of their bathrooms, or you go into a home, the bathroom is just a little hole in the ground with two little foot places for you to sit and squat. In India you will see people squatting by the side of the road. That’s just the way they do it in India. But even on the train you had the choice of either going in the western style toilet, basically a toilet hat was sitting over a hole. Or you had the eastern style, which was basically (demonstrates).

Anyway, I’m getting off track. This is what the purpose of this is for. It’s to relieve the pressure on the pelvis. It’s to help prevent constipation, hemorrhoids… Because all that stuff has pretty much developed over the last hundred years with the development of the [western] toilet. You can either squat like this if you want to. Or you can sit like that. And what that does is it takes the angle of the rectum there – you got a muscle there that’s called the pubo-rectalis muscle that goes across the rectum and it pretty much helps to relax that muscle more so there’s not as much strain on it. When you just sit at a 90 degree angle and it causes you to strain more in order to push the bowel out. Whereas when you go here at the 35 degree angle it straightens things out more and reduces the pressure on the muscle and then your angle is correct and it opens up more and, I’m just going to tell you, you flow easily and it’s just more comfortable. And it’s an easier flow. Not as much pressure. Not as much pushing. It’s just easier. So, I think I’ve given you all the information you need. I like this because when you’re done, slide it out of the way.
