In Europe & Asia they have the Bidet... A what??
 
On Cruisers & Sailing we were talking about the Bidet. :o
Do you have one on your boat/yacht? Or do you clean the Old Fashion Way?:rolleyes:
As our friends across the pound sees it. :cool:

To "Bidet" or not to "Bidet", that is the question .

On my boat, the bidet is just over the railing from the poop deck. You can use the ladder to get back aboard. If we are underway, you better have a harness and tether.

I have sailed one boat (Nauticat 37) with a bidet faucet, but no separate bidet. We never used it.

This proves that most Americans do not know what a BIDET is and what it is used for.
With a BIDET you don't need to use Toilet Paper because cleans the same area that TP is used for.
Wet down there?? A quick brust from your SO's hair dryer will take care of that minor detail.
But many of us Americans are still living in the dark ages.....:rolleyes:

Couple of boats we were on this week has bidet faucets....both European...Hanse and Wauquiez.....seems like a good idea to me, maybe somewhat wasteful of water though.

Bidés are a latin thing. We use them, the Italians, Spanish and French. Corretion, the women of these countries use them:D. They have to do with that particular hygiene care the women have one week each month.

I am quite a man from the dark ages and for me in the summer the sea water provides me with almost all the hygiene I need, for a week or so. Not with the ladies that have the need to wash their intimate parts. If a bidé was not so big, or the head so tiny, it would be a great addiction to the boat because it would save a lot of water that is otherwise wasted in a shower, I mean, if you have several ladies aboard as I normally have.

Gosh, I live in Hew Hampshire AND know what bidet does. I once worked on a house that had a GOLD bidet [really]. Initially I thought it strange to have water fountain in a bathroom.
Real men would never have one in a man boat. What the hell are toe rails for !!

Being a plumber in the past i'm pretty familiar with them. Most people that have them don't use them, toilet paper is faster - in the US that is. But, yes most lame-men wouldn't have a clue and wonder what the second toilet with drain is for. :D They are wonderful for hemorrhoids, from what i've been told!!!

Japan has the best of both worlds. On a boat maybe not practical but in your home would be great.
