A new singles event designed to leave daters feeling flushed is being held in London.
Innovative dating site DoingSomething.co.uk has teamed up with London Loo Tours to host a pub crawl, which also stops at toilets of historial note along the way.
As well as toilet puns galore, the monthly event will contain tips and tricks for locating free public loos in London, the history of the toilet from pre-Roman times to the present, and the surprisingly intense politics of the public toilet.
Toilet Dating encourages singletons to share their own dating stories – toilet related or not – as a way of getting to know each other and flush away memories of bad dates.
Matt Janes, founder of DoingSomething.co.uk, said: “Nothing would be more awkward than having a first date in a toilet… until now.
“We’ve given the London loo scene the ultimate DoingSomething.co.uk makeover and are encouraging Londoners to not be down in the dumps and try this new dating experience.”
The tour starts at The Jubiloo (reputedly pay-per-use loo in London), then goes on to The Cellar Door (a cabaret bar set in a toilet). Afterwards, the singletons frequent a few more watering holes en route, and even take a pit stop at the toilets of St Paul’s – ‘the beacon of free toileting’.
The tour price includes a free cocktail at The Cellar Door, reputedly one of Oscar Wilde’s favourite hangouts in the days when it was actually a gentleman’s toilet.
