How can people live without a bidet?
Warning: if easily offended or a bit puritan, you possibly don't want to read further.
Well, follow me on this one ;)
When your hands get dirty what will you do?
Probably you go to the washbasin and wash them with water and soap, I guess.
When your butt get dirty, what do you do?
In Italy the 99% of the house's bathrooms, even the smallest and cheapest, has this wonderful invention, the bidet.
It has the same function of a washbasin, with the form of a little toilet, and it has the purpose of washing the private parts when they get dirty.
I know, people of most countries in the world don't even know what a bidet is, or if they know they don't have it, or use it, or even want it.
I traveled in some country where at least they have some kind of device to wash themselves after body's functions.
Be it some kind of little shower, or at least a cup to pour water with, but I found those systems a tad uncomfortable, because it's difficult to wash oneself on a toilet, since water sprinkles outside.
What other possibilities are there?
Wet wipes....yes, but...to use them everyday for the rest of my life, I prefer pure, plain, old water and soap.
To wash in the bathtub or shower, even less practical, and then you wet all your legs and feet.
And if you are in a hurry you can't take a shower.
Only toilet paper, obviously it's the only possibility when you are outside your house, but in my opinion it's not sufficient because I prefer to feel all fresh and clean, and then you've got dirty panties.
And for women with menses, no, the only logical solution is the bidet.
How do you 'ahem' wash yourself if you don't have a bidet?
Share your thoughts ;)
P.s. No I'm not in the bidet business.
