If you want your bum not only washed with warm water but blow dried as well try Toto toilets

Yes, i have seen it and had it in my bathroom in Australia. Not sure why the original owner had one installed, waste of space.

Perhaps try your local bathroom supplier.

Some people find the smearing of bodily goo with dry paper around ya bottom bit unhygienic especially in the tropics. More so if you are, how does one put it nicely, not clean shaven in the plumbing regions. Think it was the french who invented it as french women are pretty hairy? :lol:

Oy QRM, I am sure if we compared our plumbing regions as you put it so cutely, you might find that you are a lot hairier than I am.
Stereotypes tsst tsst!!!
I had a British friend who kept going on and on about how hairy french women are...so I put her on the spot one day (not involving plumbing regions might I reassure you) and asked her to show me her armpits after I showed her mine. She had a massive bush! Now stop saying french women are hairy, or I'll find you and put you on the spot! :D

yes, the French invented the bidet for personal hygiene. You can thank us later. :D :D :D :D

Let's stop here shall we before SMS gets involved? off to the waxing salon, catch you later. xx

ha ha, the grass is greener or blacker on the other side, this recent trend of fur free will revert back to au naturel every thing is cyclic. I don't mind either way, though I would have to say cactus legs and arms are a bit off putting.

You are right I am probably more furry, the older we get, hairs sprout in places that I did not know existed.

Just had a tour around the St. Regis Apartments and very surprised they did not install bidets, (cost cutting if you ask me)

If you install the new toto wc no need for bog roll any more :lol:

I've seen it in practically all the shops that sell bathroom fittings.
Even the local HDB Handy store that sells odds and ends has a few different types of models.
They also call it the water spray for the toilet.

Personally I love them! Every where in Singapore have them, you just sit down and it goes off automatically, and they wash your billy Whiz if its long enough :lol: Only joking lah! That's the normal toilet, I quite often get caught out sitting down. wondering what triggers the water to flush!

Bidet is a great aid, very hygienic and i would use it too, stop all the bloody skid marks, and what a relief on the piles. :lol: As for hairy women, oh my god :shock: Did you ever see a fish called wanda, and her fetish of languages well hairy women make me weak at the knees :oops: Did someone say France :D

that's something I appreciate whenever going to Malaysia.
Most public toilets do have that, even in the airport.

I have used water wherever possible for the last 20 years and wouldn't miss it.
It is much more hygienic then using paper.

Lucky me, the shower hose in my current place is installed in such a way that it can also serve as a "Douche".
PROUT....the only way out !
