Bidet: the height of civilization

Read Time:58 Second

Have you ever used a bidet? I’m guessing most Americans haven’t, since my first encounter with one was in China, but no joke: they are the height of civilization.

For those who don’t know exactly what they are: a bidet is a device that squirts warm water upwards onto your toosh to help clean things up down there after doing your business.

Here’s the bidet I installed in our bathroom.

You can purchase this bidet on, currently for $249. There are cheaper ones but I specifically wanted one that applied heated water, because yikes, who wants cold water on their toosh?

The World's Most Indispensable Movie App

The RunPee app tells you the best times to run & pee during a movie so you don't miss the best scenes.

This was super easy to install and doesn’t require any special tools. You can probably do it yourself in 30 minutes or less.

The bidet fits most elliptical-shaped toilets. They have a size diagram on the product page you can use to see if this will fit your toilet.

I got this as a gift for my wife for Valentine’s Day. Guys, let me tell you, this makes a great gift. It is very helpful for women when they are menstruating.

Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Androidor iPhone) when you go to the movies. We have Peetimes for all wide release films every week, including The Creator, A Haunting in Venice, Expend4bles, Gran Turismo, Oppenhiemer, Barbie, and coming soon Killers of the Flower Moon, and many others. We have literally thousands of Peetimes—from classic movies through today's blockbusters. You can also keep up with movie news and reviews on our blog, or by following us on Twitter @RunPee. If there's a new film out there, we've got your bladder covered.

    I concur.
    Though I got the $30 model and it’s really not that cold..
    Real easy to install..
    And I don’t think I go above the second setting, because it can be a power washer..

    I think the “really not that cold” depends on where you live. Here in Asheville, NC the cold water temperature during the winter freezes my hands. I wouldn’t want it on my tooshy. 🙂 But if you live someplace that’s warm in the winter a non-heated version might suffice.

    I’m in Ohio, it gets cold..
    But I’m also not a dude, so you might have a point, but the tushy can handle it..

    Can that many Frenchmen be wrong?

    lol, good answer.

    Although, I think bidets are far more common in Japan. I’ve been to France and barely remember seeing on. But in Japan they have them at McDonalds.

    ROFL. I know how you feel. My wife and I are on a working vacation in San Fran right now and we’re without our bidet. I am sad every time I have to poop. 🙂

    I discovered bidets in S. Korea and believe they are the height of luxury. No one should be without one. And cold is totally the old french way

    We discovered the bidet toilet seat in Japan in 2009. I hand carried one home and will never live without it. We are on our third one!

    I know!!! When my wife and I go on vacation we lament that we have to leave our bidet behind.
