The "orbitron"

You may have thought the orgasmatron was only a fictional cylinder from Woody Allen's "Sleeper", but here it is in the South of France, residing at the Comfort Inn in Nice.

As I stepped into this bathroom, I erupted not in an orgasm, but in a spasm of laughter due to the silliness of its design. The entire circular bathroom, except for the steel bars, is made of plastic. Oh, the seventies! I took to calling it the "orbitron" because I didn't want the kids bragging at school, "we had an orgasmatron in our hotel!"
