LAVATORY-LADIES
Also known as SAN-GU, SAN-KU, TOILET-GODDESS

Goddesses of Toilets, Latrines, Lavatories, Outhouses, Closets and Washrooms.

Don't mock. It's the sign of a closed mind. What do you know about Chinese lavatories?

Few outside the country know that China had toilet paper and flushing while the rest of us were still wiping ourselves with leaves. Of course, only the richest Emperors could afford such luxury; common peasants had to make do with communal holes in the ground. Little has changed in that respect, but the government are working on it.

Anyway, to make lavatorial life a little easier to bear, the Chinese have female toilet deities. At least two are known by name: ZI-GU and QI-GU. There may well be others. Any reported sightings gratefully received.
