FINE. Since everyone wants to talk about it, I'll weigh in with some of my personal thoughts about the act of taking a crap: As Americans, we like to think that we're way more ahead of the curve and progressive and whatever. Then why do we still wipe our asses with dry paper? If you got your own crap on your hand, would you just wipe it off your hand with a dry paper towel? NO! You'd wash it off right? The Europeans have bidets....Why don't we?

Where have you been??? Bathroom ensemble that includes a bidet is now gaining popularity in American homes! I have one.

Not to mention the wet wipes. Available in the TP section of the store, not baby wipes; developed specifically for wiping your bum.

Luckily I'm pretty regular. My morning routine consists of two cups of coffee, followed immediately by my faithful morning constitutional. After that comes the shower. For me, there's just no substitute for the shower. I don't have a bidet, and wet wipes aren't sufficient for me.

I rent in California, but I have considered getting one for my home in PA. There's 6 bathrooms there though. That's a lot of coin to drop on a retrofit, and I'd have a tough time deciding which one if I had to choose.

Really. Bidets have been available in the states for decades.

It does speed up the uploading process but when you're in for the long haul, your legs will cramp like **** (pun intended)! Hubby, a recalcitrant squatter, who habitually squats on the toilet seat, now has has to do it seated because of a tear somewhere inside his chocolate alley due to prolonged squatting and pushing. Did you know that squatting makes the birthing process easier and quicker too?!!!

I'm sure the splash backs would be like cannon balls in the pool!
