DUBAI: Porthcawl, a seaside town in Wales, is planning to install public toilets with features designed to prevent people from having sex inside, CNN has reported, citing Media Wales.

The toilets, to be installed in Griffin Park, will have features that would deter “inappropriate sexual activity and vandalism.”

These include doors that open wide once unusual activity is detected, a “squeal alarm,” a cold water spray, movement sensors that will respond to “violent activity,” and sense if there are more than one person inside in which case deterrent measures will be triggered.

The toilets will also have sort of a localized public address system that will play a warning if a user has been staying too long inside, simultaneous with the light and heater switching off as a measure against the homeless.

The facilities will also have floor and wall washers to maintain cleanliness.

The CNN report quoted town council member Mike Clarke as telling WalesOnline, that “rebuilding the public toilets is an important element of Porthcawl Town Council’s ambition to ensure that Porthcawl is a great place to live, work and to visit.”

According to WalesOnline, the toilets will cost Porthcawl Town Council £170,000 (about $200,000), while users will pay an as yet undetermined fee to access them, CNN also reported.

The news network also reported that the plan has already come under fire on social media with netizens questioning, for instance, the weight baseline for one person; and others countering the toilets’ anti-homeless features.

Wales is one of four countries comprising the United Kingdom.
