I don't understand why it would have to be placed in a "mens room" in an
affluent house, instead of having it as part of the normal set of
fixtures in the main washroom of the average home(*)
(*) By "average home", I mean a "modern" home - with a suitably large
or spacious main washroom according to modern tastes and desires, or the
renovation of an older home with the intent of enlarging the washroom.
I think the answer is it doesn't have to be. You can put it anywhere you
want. There are plenty of houses that do have one. I knew someone who
had one because they had lots of boys. But for the reasons I already
mentioned it's a luxury because toilets do double duty. You're beating a
One of my buddies installed one in his "man cave". Most of the guys
that are over think its great and he doesnt have to worry so much
about his half crocked buddies missing the target. My fatherin law
also had one in his bathroom, he didnt have to share it with anyone
and he wasnt planing on reselling the house. They are much easier to
clean than a toilet and since he had a toilet out in his shop ( much
time spent there) the toilet in his bedroom was rarely used.

Depends. Some handle the pen very well.
Bill Clinton steps out onto the White House lawn in the dead of
winter. Right in front of him, on the White House lawn, he sees "The
President Must Die" written in urine across the snow. Well, old Bill
is pretty pissed off.
He storms into his security staff's headquaters and yells, "Somebody
wrote a death threat in the snow on the front damn lawn! And they
wrote it in urine! Son-of-a-bitch had to be standing right on the
porch when he did it! Where were you guys?"
The security guys stay silent and stare ashamedly at the floor. Bill
hollers, "Well dammit, don't just sit there! Get out and FIND OUT WHO
DID IT! I want an answer, and I want it TONIGHT!"
The entire staff immediately jumped up and raced for the exits. Later
that evening, his chief security officer approaches him and says,
"Well Mr. President, we have some bad news, and we have some really
bad news. Which do you want first?"
Clinton says, "Oh Hell, give me the bad news first." The officer says,
"Well, we took a sample of the urine and tested it. The results just
came back, and it was Al Gore's urine."
Clinton says, "Oh my god, I feel so ... so betrayed! My own vice
president! Damn. Well, what's the really bad news?"
The officer replies, "Well, it's Hillary's handwriting."
If you do put one in you can put a mirror over it with a sign reading,
"Objects in mirror may be smaller than they look."
Or, skip the mirror and just put up a sign over it reading:
"The future of the human race is in your hands now."
