New research has lifted the lid on gender-neutral toilets, with 55% of people in the UK claiming they’d avoid them. Almost two thirds of those surveyed (65%) revealed sharing these lavatories is awkward, with a further 34% not wanting to use them for fear of their safety.
It seems hygiene is also in high demand, as 29% said cleanliness of their cubicles would suffer if used by the opposite sex.
One major problem for women would be waiting to use the toilet, with 19% claiming they’d be lingering longer in line if they shared their facilities, according to the new data from www.bathroomtakeaway.co.uk. However, a study published in the journal, Psychological Reports, found that installing gender-neutral facilities can actually cut queues for ladies’ loos.
