Well, you are not supposed to actually sit on them, you need to "hover".

I'm not paranoid, but carrying small (aircraft allowed) bottle of "hand sanitizer" (gel made of some stabilized alcohol) can be a good choice. 

And I'm not talking about using it for hands...

Just take a tissue, and wash toilet seat with that gel. It evaporates in seconds, leaving quite clean and bacteria-free surface. Then You don't need to "use force" to levitate

When we first went to UK, my wife always carried disposable toilet seats (made out of thin plastic) for those occasions when she had to use public toilets. I doubt you can get them in china. Even then apparently she preferred to hover!

 No, but I am paranoid about using squat holes. How do they not get shit on their pants while squatting there?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
