It is against the law to have sex in a public toilet and you risk being arrested for cottaging regardless of whether you are being discreet or not. For example, having sex in a cubicle behind closed doors is still a sexual offence. If you still go cottaging you need to be very careful, as police or others can regularly patrol toilets, particularly in train stations, shopping centres and parks. Look out for warnings posted on websites such as Squirt. You should also be careful cruising in other venues used by the public, such gyms, swimming pools and saunas; if you are discovered or a complaint is made you could be banned from the venue or even arrested.
