    Ahh thank you toilet paper (and in some emergencies, thank you Kleenex).

    Actually I`ve wondered, when you use a bidet don`t you need something to clean up even after that? Or are you supposed to use a towel? I had one in a hotel room in Paris but was too chicken to try it out.

    That is nasty. Why do you people wipe your a$$ anyway?? That is really, really dirty and VERY unhygenic. Thats why colon cancer is getting higher and other a$$ related diseases..no joke!Do you know Muslims are the only people that wash their a$$ after taking a dump. TP dont cut it. You guys and girls have to start being cleaner. Seriously... It will only benefit you. Dont be ignorant to this advice..Islam is the way though.

    Er, that left hand is misinformed. It`s not just the left hand, it`s left hand PLUS WATER. Like a bidet. With some assistance.

    And so much part of my culture, when I go to places with only toilet paper and no water I just don`t feel clean wiping my ass with TP.

    Usually I`ll use kleenex when the TP runs out, we keep it right next to the toilet.

    The worst I`ve had to use was a pad wrapper.
    Or maybe the crinkled-up kleenex with gum in it I found in my pocket was worse.
    I dunno.

    I`m just thankful I can wipe my arse.
    I`ve a friend who knows a man so obese, he can`t. Has to wash off in the shower after taking a dump. Which is great news for his colon, I guess. .-.

    I think I remember reading about a prison riot that was sparked by a shortage of (and low quality) toilet paper - among other things, like green sandwich meat and other choice aspects of state penn life. I hope sheriff Joe Arpaio out here already knows about the left-hand practice and just hasn`t been able to convince enough officials to make that one mandatory in tent city.

    That has ABSOLUTELY no connection to colon cancer.

    Toilet paper works for me. Charmin. A lot of it. Then again I get the best of both worlds by wetting my toiler paper a bit in the bidet next to my toilet.

    Boadicea, if you use the bidet properly it will be entirely clean. You just need to dry off afterwards.

    So many of those sound a lot better than 2 ply toilet paper.

    Also, I`m in agreement with Pabasa. I really don`t get it when people go "Ewwww! Water + hands?!" as opposed to TP.

    Seriously, it`s a 3 stage process, you wash everything, then you use your hands, and then you dry off with the TP.

    Say you fell in a tub of poop.
    What would you rather do?
    Shower (With hands and water! Ewwww!!), then dry yourself off.
    Or
    Skip the shower and just wipe yourself down with a roll of TP to give yourself that all over clean feel.

    Bidet = Win.

    Baalthazaq, assuming that the person in question washed his/her hands afterward.

    Just the other day, I was in the restroom at a Wal-Mart. I walked in, then two other women walked in, we all did our business, then of the three of us, I was the only one who actually washed hands. The other two just walked out past the sinks, hand soap, and towels.

    It gives you perspective on who actually would wash ones hands after doing their business.

    All I knew was that it WASN`T poison ivy, so it passed my test with flying colors...

    Yeah, it wasn`t poison ivy, only because too busy being poison drating oak.

    Abby:

    1) The 5 prayers a day requires you to wash your hands/feet before each prayer as part of the ritual. You`re not allowed to pray if you`re not clean and you`re not allowed to not pray.

    2) The left hand is considered the dirty hand in the mid east. You don`t do anything with it that requires cleanliness. Handling food, shaking hands, etc. All right handed.

    I would have to say that bidets are better than TP. I just wish they were more commonplace in the States tho...

    But... if you wipe your ass with your hand (and use water) you have to use soap afterwards too, right? Because just rinsing with water isn`t gonna get rid of all that bacteria, like e-coli.
