Whatever you do, don’t search the ‘Dubai Porta Potty’ trend that’s going viral on TikTok

I’m never opening my eyes again


TikTok is no stranger to a weird trend, from the ‘Art of the Zoo’ to the chainsaw revelations. And now it’s back with an absolute stinker. I am of course referring to the Dubai Porta Potty trend that everyone on TikTok is telling us not to watch. While the title subtly implies just how gross it is, the trend has also been dubbed by some people as racist. Here’s everything we know about the Dubai Porta Potty:

What is the Dubai Porta Potty trend?

TikTok content creator @ebrahim_ka explained the trend to his one million followers. “Supposedly Instagram models and other female influencers are receiving messages from wealthy Arab men, offering them up to $1m for the opportunity of defecating on their faces.”

It’s about shitting on faces. The mouth is the porta potty. That is all.

Unsurprisingly, lots of people know this, they understand this, and yet they are still searching for it, before posting TikToks telling people not to watch one video in particular.

Now I’m not hear to kink shame anyone, but at the same time, for the sake of your sanity, do not watch the video.

Why is the Dubai Porta Potty trend problematic?

Tiktoker @ebrahim_ka goes onto explain why the heightened conversation around this trend could be leading to people developing racist assumptions about Arab men.

He quotes one influencer as saying: “All rich men in Dubai fly girls out to do this. They are disgusting. All of them have the same fetish.”

He thinks that those who make these kind of statements are racist. “You are generalising every Arab man in Dubai.”

Having watched the video, @ebrahim_ka says there is no indication it even involves an Arab man or takes place in Dubai.

He adds: “For those racist people that are taking these statements seriously, y’all should really grow up and actually analyse the information you read online.”
