Whoa, is the klo maybe short for 'water closet'?
Dixi is the name its inventor (an American soldier stationed in Germany) gave it; Klo is a colloquial term for toilet, and as you guessed correctly, it's short for Klosett (which nobody ever says).Hmm, that sounds unlovely. Is it short for something?
I've heard that used by a few women in Glasgow, but I didn't know it was an Americanism.One manufacturer from Scranton, Pennsylvania (famous in the US because of the ripoff show The Office) has the admittedly cute brand name 'Hiny Hiders' (the word 'hiny' is a sort of hypocorism for 'buttocks', from the word 'behind' which, when used in this sense, is accented on the first syllable /'bi-haind/).
Indeed, it is cottaging. I wonder what the thought process is. Definitely a unique experience.Not entirely sure why the oft meeting grounds for this sort of thing are toilets but they do appear to crop up a fair bit. Even well-known people like the late George Michael did it. I think it's called cottaging.
Men's public toilets are just so gross but I suppose where else could they meet spontaneously for this type of thing away from the public eye. I think it's disgusting personally and I imagine most gays stick to the bars and online. Maybe there's an excitement element at play too but public toilets are so grim I struggle to see any appeal whatsoever.Indeed, it is cottaging. I wonder what the thought process is.
