No, it's that you're so HORRIFIED that people would use their hands to wash their "dirty parts." You do sound ridiculous.

Using *just* your hand instead of toilet paper wouldn't work because there's no soap involved. If you use soap (and water), then yes, using your hand instead of toilet paper would work, but then there's a whole drying issue. In that instance, toilet paper is more practical. But hand soap and water would be effective as well.

Ok, so for my mental image, I take it that some are rubbing the bar of soap directly in their crevice similar to the way I'd use a washcloth or they're lathering their hand first and then applying that hand to the crevice.

Yes. Either way.

Your interpretation. Point to any post where I said I was horrified. I think it's nasty - which is my opinion. Not the same thing.

No, you didn't say you were horrified, but your posts sound horrified. Yes, that's my interpretation.

Not sure what other conclusions I can draw when you accuse others of belaboring the point and then belabor it yourself by asking if people use their hands *down there* during *that time of the month* Oh, the bloody horror!!!!!!

I use Lever 2000 soap, because my doctor told me it would help prevent Staph infections.

I use a wash cloth and either body wash or bar soap. I'm kind of a scent fanatic so I use whatever I think smells good. It might come from the grocery store or it might come from a specialty bath store...I don't have loyalties to any particular brand.

I too find it odd that someone wouldn't use a cloth, loofah or sponge to wash their body, but hey....different strokes.
