Does it comes with someone to wipe your behind?

I mean really, you sit down, take care of business and that usually involves wiping some part of your body that usually isn't exposed. Then you are afraid of getting germs from flushing to toilet? Do you wipe and then wash your hands and then return to flush the toilet so that then your hands aren't touching anything?

How are you turning on the water faucet? Touchless as well? No matter, your hand (or hands if maybe you are a really large individual) are right at the source before you stand up. Then, you are pulling up or putting on your pants, skirt, or spandex riding suit right? You're touching that or is the idea that you do the gangster walk little two step over to the touchless faucet, wash your hands and then pull up/on your lower clothing and only then walk over and flush to toilet? Did you put the seat cover back down, was it before or after? Has to be after right- according to the marketing idea. Well then, you do this after washing your hands?

Then, for the high producers, you need to practically turn around to get your hand above the water tank?

Does anyone think about this before they design something. While not a topic everyone wants to talk about, there seems to be a gap in thinking when they came up with this idea and the marketing behind this (pun intended).







Now before the really serious people get all their pants and panties bunched up and start talking about too much thought and so on- hey- get a life, smile and laugh a bit, your face won't crack.

Lol I don't see why someone would need this at their house. They come in handy in public restrooms.

Is this a "Seinfeld" episode?

.
For that, you could get a bidet

Seriously, for offices and other public places it's great. Too many people don't believe in flushing the toilet...
And lots of them don't wash their hands either

Seems silly and does not work with dual-flush toilets.
Requires batteries and costs $100.

^^^ We should be not afraid of few germs. If we try to eliminate 99,99%, the 0,001% will kill us.
Use enough toilet paper to avoid contact with #1 or #2, then wash your hands after your business. Periodically clean your bathroom, and you will be fine.

...Do you wash your hands every time you touch money and before you touch something else? How about door knobs, shopping carts, produce, packed meats, gas pumps etc...

Here, read this. Those things are much dirtier than a toilet seat. Now, how you want to deal with that??

We thought briefly about getting it, since we need to replace the guest room toilet. We decided it was just asking for trouble.

Just one more battery operated complication in life, IMHO.

One more thing to go wrong with the system, and who (okay outside of the Japanese) needs to add that kind of complexity to waste disposal?
