To the Bathroom!

Will Self ponders our estrangement from our bodies and our infantilism regarding our toilet habits.

"Christianity has a lot to answer for," writes Will Self, "when it comes to our estrangement from our bodies - making our evacuations, quite as much as our sexual acts - an anathema in polite society".

Will argues that our infantilism in this regard detracts from our engagement with the world.
