Meh. Bought a bidet seat at the beginning of the pandemic. Takes forever to go through a roll now. Best $75 I've spent in a long time. Now, using a non-bidet toilet just feels so... vulgar.

Serious question:  I've never used a bidet and don't understand how, when you are finished, you don't at least need to dry yourself off. And if you DO need to dry off, do you just hang the towel somewhere in the bathroom? I mean, wouldn't it be at least a bit poo-smelling?

Ever hear the expression about having air blown up your ass? Some models have that ability as long as you have an outlet close by. That ensures the water it spouts will be warm, too.
But otherwise you use a bit of tp.

My usual method is blast for about 20-30 seconds, then pat dry.  So, like 3 sheets at the end.

Interesting. I had thought a regular towel would be used (or maybe I just imagined that back when TP was hard to come by). I also didn't know the stream would be sufficient to really clean everything up (i.e., like the day after Taco Night).

I hear ya, because of the colectomy I basically poop... mashed potatoes. I'd need a garden hose setting. I jump in the shower after wiping, a lot.

I understand. I typically have  "splatter action" going on due to release-velocity compared to birthing simple sausages (the best way I can explain it) so unless the bidet has a "wide-area-dispersal" setting, I can't see it working for me. I'd still need the normal amount of TP to dry myself off as near as I can figure. Good for those folks for whom it works well, though!  :)

Well, for what it's worth...I'm simply not understanding the benefits of a bidet especially if the use of TP to dry off is involved.

Not everyone poops the same way. My metabolism is such that mine typically attain lift-off velocity...which means I'm squeaky clean compared to having to drop a huge load every couple of days. The flipside, however, is that this type of fluidity means that when ya' gotta go...ya' gotta go. It's rare that I actually birth a typical "turd". Heck, I envy it when we walk our German Shep' girl and she poops out hotdogs. Why can't I do the same?, I wonder.

Meh. I am ready. I have been eating a lot of corn on the cob and saving the cobs. Ha! And they are washable and reusable.

I also bought a bidet last year, and would note two more things:

1. Using at least some TP to dry off is also a good way to tell if you missed a spot.
2. The amount of TP you might need to dry off may vary from person to person, depending on how much body hair one has in that area.
 
2021-05-08 7:57:25 PM  
I've stated my love of the bidet before, and I'm happy to do so again. Quite simply the best home appliance I've bought in years.

When they bought enough to take care of their posterior hygiene for the next 50 years, yes they do.

I'd love to get a bidet seat, but our water is right about 39 degrees year round. Talk about a whoopee factor...

Most bidets either come with hookups for both hot and cold pipes, or include a heated reservoir.  Mine heats up the reservoir as soon as it detects that someone has sat down on it.

The models that connect to hot water pipes are significantly cheaper, but they require more plumbing work to install, and there's a risk of an unpleasant surprise if the temperature of the hot water is inconsistent.
