Cuz We like being filthy!

I'm really not sure why they aren't more popular, my guess usage will continue to grow like Asian countries.

I don't consider it just a rinse, the spray is pretty powerful, so don't think of it like your faucet. Think of it more like a big water pick in your toilet that somehow miraculously knows exactly where to spray!

Wet wipes block the sewage system, even the ones that say they break down. Bidet or small cup bucket thing like Muslim use is best.

We call it taking a shower in this neck of the woods.
Timing is important.
I spent a few weeks doing repairs on an oil tanker from Sri Lanka.
No toilet paper. Hell, there wasn't even a toilet.
Just a pipe in the floor and a garden hose.

Nope.

Ever use an outhouse?? OK. Ever have to use an ice chipper to destroy an ice s#-cicle from poking out your brown eye??!

Bidets are a warm weather luxury! Try hauling a honey bucket a half mile in a blizzard!

That is what it is like in rural Alaska. And why I don’t travel out to them there parts!!

Amazon?!?! Sounds like a First World issue!!

(Just kidding! I am a city mouse through and through but never had a lawn sprinkler wipe my hiney!! lol)

Just go to the Casino in Escanaba, when you lean forward to wipe your but the toilet flushes and it sprays all over your but.

How discouraging, those automatic toilets really suck sometimes.

Believe it or not, there are at least a handful of times where I do my business in the wild. Nothing has been more refreshing than finding a proper lush green leaf or 2 or 3 to handle the tail end of that job. It is actually like wiping with lotion at the same time. Continuing to have this conversation, and remembering the comfort of using fresh leaves (big leaves obviously) I may just run an experiment.

Perhaps, use leaves and a bidet? I have never been afforded the opportunity to use one, but it is starting to like it may be the way to go based on the testimony thus far.

Seriously people, grab a few nice lush green leaves that you know are not the itchy type, not covered in mold, or crawling with bugs. Use them once just for the experience. They really are like a lotion wipe all in one. If I were to ever manage a bidet, I would try that with leaves as well. Nothing cleans like nature. Plants and water, the exit portal may thank you with extended comfort.

Yep. I've had to do that many times. I always used to look for a nettle patch because nearby, there will always be Doc Leaves. They are not just good for nettle stings. Like you say, they have soothing oils in them.

I have used a bidet for years now, i do not feel clean while using paper because you really aren't 100% clean. If you wash with water and soap, that is a different matter. Every time you take a dump and clean with paper residue is left on and around your butt. Although i am not a germophobe or anything like that, i do like to be clean, i take 2 baths a day and 3 during hot weather. The use of a bidet has made the use of toilet paper seem like sand paper. Can't live without a bidet now because if i am in a place without one, after using toilet paper i spend the entire day feeling unclean.

hehe,

Andro

that is a good price and the number of 4 and 5 star o reviews are 92 per cent......there are 2 models the 120 has 1 setting the 180 has male and female settings....it was said is raised the back of the toilet seat half and inch so you need to put toilet bumpers to fill the gap so you don't break you toilet seat.

flushable wipes cogged my toilet and I had to call the plumber...even if you don;t get a clog they take a long time to dissolve and clog down at the other end at the water plant.

never used a bidet but I hear they keep you clean.......someone answered a question on amazon...they used to use a12 roll pack in a month and now it lasts 3 months.........but not good if there is a drought going on

Never seen one in real life. With the rave reviews I'm surprised they are not more popular

this is the funniest thread I've ever read

Having been a landscaper for over a dozen years, many's the time I dumped "freestyle". LOL. We used to find a small stream nearby, if possible, hang our butt over the water and let it rip. Finish off with leaves if necessary. But honestly, we always kept a couple of rolls of TP in the trucks for just such an emergency.

How about a more modern Japanese style bidet.

I haven't used one, but my cousin says once you own one, you think its disgusting not to use one.

That's terrible.

Hikers might be drinking that water.

I hear that they can leave you feeling a bit flushed. Here's something to listen to while you make your decision.

My first experience with a bidet was in a Copenhagen Denmark hotel. I asked my grandfather what it was and he told me it was for washing your feet. I believed this for many years. Thanks gramps.

I do what the cats do. I tend to just burrow a small depression out of the ground with my shoe, drop off the package, and then bury the treasure by kicking over dirt and dry leaves. I never want to dispose of it in running water (the non plumbing type) due to the stories I always read from the old days of war, where a battalion upstream does their business, and the unfortunate ones downstream get sick from catching the left over.

Alaska checking in and quoting for truth. As a man who has spent time in an outhouse in sub zero conditions, I will say that not once have I thought "Hey, blasting my asshole with a swift stream of water would be a great idea right now!" I don't understand the bidet nor do I particularly care to, but more power to those who do, I reckon.

I already have enough of a problem when "The Splash" reaches my skin, so I can't imagine desiring anything similar.

But the concept is hygienically fascinating.

I heard Howard Stern on 105.9 and he said that whenever he
produces any #, afterward, he must take a shower.

Just putting it out there...

Yes, I certainly did hear this.
