Would you use a bidet?

PassionQT PassionQT
I just took a quick 5mn, 1/4-full bath to wash the important areas, but was thinking of how nice it would be to have a bidet in my house since it would use less water. I'll still take a full shower later on today after I do some yard work and get sweaty all over, but it's nice to at least feel fresh "down there" during the day, especially since I usually don't wake up smelly.

In case you are wondering what one is, it looks like a toilet with no seat and has a sprinkler in the center and can be filled with water too for sitz baths, etc.. It's great before and after sex, during menstrual periods, etc.. I grew up with one in Europe and even though I found it pointless at first, I eventually understood why they have them.

I don't see the point in one since I can shower or bathe.

Heck Yeah! I just hope my cat doesn't figure out how to play in it! He loves the sink!

Ciao. Ciao.
I've only been in one house in the US that has a bidet, but I'd definitely go for one. However, I'm sure my cat would figure out how to use it, he already tried to flush the toilet but just isn't strong enough to get it to go.

Absolutely would love to have one.

Would have to keep the bathroom door closed though cuz the dogs would think it was their own personal bubbler.

I've never actually used one, but have long thought that it would be a nice thing to have in our bathroom. Maybe in a future home we will.

I'd LOVE one. Years ago, we remodeled our upstairs bathroom. The people who lived here before us had, like 8 kids and had taken the attic and turned it into bedrooms and added a HUGE bathroom. When we remodeled and redid the Jacuzzi tub, new sink and cabinet, new toilet etc (pre-economy shit) I really wanted a bidet and we had room for it, and My Man could have done the plumbing.

He though it was "silly to have an other toilet, just so you can wash your little pussy." Nice? Huh? Now, that we realize it would have also added value to our house, I really wish we had done it. He wanted a URINAL. UG. We got neither.

It would be easier than "bird baths" or "whores baths" in front of the sink, when surprise sex happens.

From Victor/Victoria ...

Victoria: Seems we decided to sleep apart - there's more than enough room for one of us to sleep in the bathtub.
Toddy: And if we should have an overnight guest, he can always stretch out in the bidet.

(Really, I think it's a marvelous invention.)

I've always thought the concept was a brilliant idea. I think it's a great alternative to showers when you've already taken one that day, but need to "freshen up." heh I would definitely want one of my own in my own place.

LOL! That would be the case at our house too.

Although I do not have one in my own house...yet...I use them when I am overseas in Europe and the Middle East where they are common and are even in public restrooms. Although most of them there, or at least the ones I have encountered and used on my trips, are like a regular toilet, with a seat, except that they have adjustable water jets, nozzles or spray attachments (depending on the manufacturer and also the country that it is in.) When I was in Europe, most of the ones I encounter have wonderfully warm water. The ones I used in the Middle East were cold water only...REAL cold. I'd like one in my own bathroom.I love using them and feel so much cleaner afterward.

Hahaha: well, not my house, but my parents.

Everybody was so excited when their new house had it, but we can't figure out how to use the damn thing. Maybe we're just too Texan. I really should youtube it or something but srsly! It's all the way down there by your feet! For all I know, the person that originally had it installed didn't know what it was supposed to do either.

When I was younger I thought it would be silly to have one. I couldn't figure out the point of having one and no one around me knew either. Now that I'm older I find myself wanting one. Perhaps when I move I'll have one installed in my home. Then when company comes over I can show it off as well.

I would like one, if for no other reason than the awesome novelty factor of having one. Although I'm sure that once I owned one, I would finally get the purpose behind one because while yes, I can shower or take a bath, a bidet would sure as heck be a lot faster if I was only looking to clean up a little bit of blood but were otherwise clean.

I've dipped my tush in the sink (at our house, not others') many a times to scrub up quick. LOL

I do not have one, and do not have a desire to have one, but I do see the point in owning one. I may perhaps change my mind someday, but it sometimes feels, since I know how they work, that it might be more uncomfortable than a bath or shower would be, as it spurts the water rather than washes.

Totally want one. My relatives overseas had them when we would go to visit, and I got used to using them there. They make sense, I didn't get why we didn't use them here. I guess a lot of people are into them now, that's cool.

I'd definitely try one. I like the idea of them.

Mine go for the tub and wait for water to trickle out. And we have to keep the toilet lid closed all the time because they think it's their water dish

The idea of a water fountain for my netherlands icks me out. Plus it would probably just make me wanna pee. Damn incontinence.

Never tried or seen once before. I don't think I'd want one really, knowing me it'll miss and get my whole backside wet or something lol.

Hahahaa, I have, too. Until the damn thing began to pull away from the wall. "What the f*ck happened to this sink?" He asks. "I dunno?" looking away, I said. (If I had my freakin' bidet, I wouldn't have had to.....)

They grew on me when I was living in Germany - I don't miss having one in my house terribly, but I'd prefer one if it were easy/cheap to install.

How does it dry off? Does it use soap too?

Some of the more advanced ones have air jets, but usually you either drip dry or use a towel.

You could use soap, but most don't squirt soap at you. Let me see if I can post a picture.

I'd love one. I'd teach my FIVE YEAR OLD how to use one and never again have to worry about her not wiping properly! (UGH! Kids are fun )

I think I could easily get my hubby to go for one too, if ever the day comes where we not only 1) own a house but 2) have money to remodel.

Hahahahaha! The Hershey Highway after kids this age go to the bathroom. UG!

I remember too many times walking into the bathroom and thinking (or saying) "WTF smells like shit in here?" Only to see a trail from the toilet seat to wherever the kid put their pants (with still poopy bottoms) back on. Blech. (I'm such a nice mom. Now, where did our children get those potty mouths from?)

I'm glad to be done with those days. (And that laundry, and all that kid, pant and toilet washing.)

But, can you imagine what a poopy bottomed 4 year old, with terrible wiping skills would do to your beautiful clean bidet?

I see what you are saying. But, in most countries where bidets are common, people don't have the American obsessive bathing or showering twice a day habit that a lot of us do. In the long run, it probably saves on water. In the winter I could skip a day in the bath, IF I had a bidet. It wold be better for the rest of my skin, which dries out from too frequent bathing, and also only keep parts clean several times a day which need it. I'd personally love one.

Especially on days like today, as it is 25 below with the wind chill here and in the 60s in my house, even with the heat cranked. I would skip a full bath on a day like today, if I had a bidet.
