Anyone in Otterville own a Bidet?

Just curious. If so, what kind of model do you own and where did you get it?
Are you happy with it? I've never used one, but I know they are big in Asia and
Europe.

They were standard where I lived in the Middle East. Don't know a lot about them but they all seem to have a horizontal faucet, and some models also have a vertical shower spray, which if you use when you aren't sitting on it, ends up soaking your ceiling.

Who needs the high cost of a bidet when you can buy one of them hoses at Savons for a couple bucks?

They're not just for "Scruffy" anymore! No Sir!



Just slip it on the faucet and literally spray away anything unwanted from anywhere!

THEEK

The bidet is something I wish had caught on in the US. Whenever I get around to buying a place, I am definitely having one installed.

I'd rather have a urinal in my home than a bidet.

Aren't bidets for morbidly obese people who lack the physical capacity to properly wipe?

Yeah, I think I'd give the bidet a miss. It doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I know how to use one and the concept, but seriously, it doesn't seem particularly comfortable to me. I'll stick with TP, thanks.

This idea makes more sense as seen on Hey! Spring of Trivia on Spike TV. It's a toilet that acts like a bidet, no extra fixture.

http://www.spiketv.com/shows/series/...sode_11.jhtml#

There a video that shows how it works.

It's made by TOTO toilets and is called a washlet, basically a wand that extends at the push of a button and runs warm water and it has a dryer too.
http://www.washlet.com/jasmin.asp

scroll down and watch the video the computer animation is amusing.

I too don't quite see the desire to want one of these.

A big to the urinal idea though. Actually, I was thinking about this the other day and how I have never seen one in a house.

WOAH, Cptkirk!

Watching that video was like visiting the "Museum of the Toilet" or a Commode Convention!

To tell ya the truth, the presentation freaked me out.

That woman talking like she was on drugs and having an orgasm about a toilet was just plain weird, then seeing a toilet near a waterfall, and then another just sitting out there, somewhere in nature as if it was "all so natural" for it to be there was the last straw.

If I EVER saw that in real life, I would think that either someone had slipped me a "Trippy Mickey", I was having a flashback, or I was on Candid Camera!

Butt, I have to say, I really liked the different voice actors...especially that one old dude...

"Ever since I had my arm eaten off by a wild bear in a hunting accident, I haven't been able to polish and shine the ol' General as well as I used too...that is, until now. Thank you, Toto, and the washlet!"

WT...???



THEEK!

Urinals are one of the most popular upgrades in new homes. (seriously)

I just wash my ass out in my sink when I'm done. Who needs an extra fixture to clean...

True....but the reason more people don't have them is because a full toliet costs about $500 and a urinal is $1000

Since most people don't have bidets, I decided the important task of starting a thread about skidmarks had to be done.

http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=404252

I think The Edit King may even have posted in that one so I could that thread a success!


Toto! I was thinking it was Toro when I did a search. While in Japan I really found myself enjoying that "oh so fresh feeling". Although the warm water pulsating on my nethers almost made me catch teh Gay.

It always starts out small with something like this. It's only a matter of time though before you'll be found dead on the receiving end of a sherry enema.

Enema eh?

Mrs. Pusser and I did a fast for four days awhile back and an enema was recommended. But I'm pretty sure we didn't do it.
