Amazing Bathrooms

The flush: Sofitel Queenstown, Queenstown, New Zealand

The lowdown: It's been noted that guys react differently to the second-floor men's room in this luxury hotel: Some prance and preen; others suffer performance anxiety and leave in an unhappy state. Designers Brett Taylor, Mark Perriam, and Cam Marsh installed life-size photographs of female voyeurs, who peep saucily from behind the cone-shaped urinals—with binoculars, glasses, cameras, even a tape measure in hand. The poor fellas who make it through the ordeal could be in for another shock: The models are all local women—so visitors might bump into them, live, on the street. Talk about déjà loo.
