I'll admit it...I've got way too much spare time on my hands today.
But seriously, why is it that the handicapped stall is always the one people beeline to, regardless of their physical condition?
The wide-open spaces?
The extra large door?
Personally, I think it's the fact that it's almost always constructed against a permanent bathroom wall, perhaps giving a sense of "security" when sitting in there (just two little aluminum walls instead of three).

In most of the offices where I have worked, it is completely separated from the main toilets (probably added when there was a legal requirement to have it there - ie. building not designed with it in mind). It is therefore better if you want somewhere quiet to go for a quick shag. Some female office workers have pretty boring lives so are happy to receive a bit of TLC during the working day.

In my old high school, someone wrote 'The Throne' on the wall behind the toilet in the handicapped stall. The rails and the extra room make a huge difference when you are dropping the Cosby kids off at the pool.

Back from a long absense, I had to respond to this particular thread.
I like the handicapped stalls because of the openness of them, as well as the sometimes larger toilet. I'm 6'4" and when I sit on normal toilets my legs come up towards my chest. On handicapped toilets my legs are in a normal comfortable sitting position.
