Note that this post might be NSFL as it discusses so called “natural functions”. No pictures though.
I have for years now had hard feces, however recently been experimenting with softer ones to prevent trouble with the ancient piping in this building. While having much less trouble with the toilet and my rectum, I have noticed that the softer ones tend to smear more, both on the porcelain and on my inner ass cheeks. This requires more widespread wiping than with hard ones.
A word to the wise is sufficient.
