I disagree that one is any cleaner than one who doesn't use a bidet. Maybe you have difficulty wiping, but I wouldn't assume all of us do. In your mind you've somehow been convinced that wiping isn't capable of collecting 100% of the fecal matter which isn't true. It is possible indeed.



I also find it convenient that all of these Bidets started entering the country around the time Gay Rights Movement was in its height. No offense to anyone here of that orientation but as one who is hetero I prefer to avoid squirting water up my anus.


I mean no offense to anyone here, those are just my preferences, and most of America's as well. Less than 10% of people use Bidets in America currently.
------------------
Thank you for your honesty & deticated voyeurism.

🤣 🤣 🤣 the bold parts are some wild experiences. I've not made so many comparisons, just myself & immediate family members (who wish to remain unnamed) Thanks for taking a pole(s). ↩pun here I'm like, WOW. Did you really see that?

Amazing data report. I can't imagine what you must have experienced. Having to witness such a large crossection of America, do their business, to provide us with that accurate testimony. Where did you witness all of these people grow up? What sort women do this? (or just men, bro) Maybe it was only happening with the folks whom you witnessed 🤷, they definitely were NOT 'proper' ladies. Even our children know differently. Dry paper is no good for infants. 100%... uh, lab tested 🤗.

The original post by Mattbzn, is asking a legit question 🙋. He is not alone - ladies especially, but also some gents, want clean bums. If you haven't any experience wetting the TP then congrats. Unfortunately, we cannot testify to the smells inhaled, by the society around ourselves. We'll have to ask a peson who avoids you.

Some humans are nose blind. Common enough. Each of us know that we are either part of the circle of coworkers, whom discuss these folks, or you are part of the 🐈litter / 💩 👖 group. Hygiene is not correlated to sexual orientation.



Your rant does tell us exactly which genders' parts you think of when you read the word 'bidet'. Myself & many parents, we think about the ob ward, labor & delivery rooms and clean lady parts. And you did head directly for the 'King Pins' 😉. I'm just sayin', phobes until they're drunk, ya know.

Tell us what else you've never done, nor will ever do.
Subjects you've ignored? Rant about 'em.

nose blind??

I have a pretty keen nose.. i can smell freon.. a supposedly odorless substance... a gift thats helped me quite a bit in this life!!


alas when im out and about i notice lots of different people smells.. the onbvious ones who fail to shower and / or dont use deodorant.. the large sweaty peeps.. those that smoke tobacco.. esp the ones that smoke weed.. and even the drunks that reek of various alcohol... curiously absent from the list is Butt stink.. really I dont walk around and think "wow he smells like butt".. it just doesnt happen..



what does the Bidet-only crowd do out and about? carry a windex bottle set to "stream" mode?



that said if you want a bidet in your bus install one.. I dont think you need a home toilet to do so.. there are standalone bidet's that dont have a bowl full of water so shouldnt be an issue.. and the elongated bowl RV toilets really seem to be exactly the same size as the long bowl thrones in my house.. a double-flush of a good RV toilet will rinse down nicely..



as far as wetted-down paper.. my plumber friend says Yoo-hoo!! to all those that use "flushable wipes" he says keep on using them because they make him serious bank as they dont dissolve.. so he gets to come and clear lots of drains for $$$...

You’ll probably want good water pressure. I assume that translates as a higher GPM pump

i've read that bidets are pretty easy to mount on rv style toilets. i believe there is a bit of grinding you have to do as there is a porcelain hump thats in the way of the bidet, but after clearing that, the install is easy.

an rv gravity style toilet is close enough to the homestyle that its the easier way to go. porcelain is better than plastic.

if you have to move poo thru a pipe, i'd look at macerator toilets. one like the thetford tecma, i believe it comes in a bidet model too.

i'd install one, i could get use to the cold water. im just scared. the farm i worked on last year had one in the men's room,... and nobody would admit to using it. the buttons are a bit overwhelming...i mean, what if i scream? at work?

im still waiting to pop that cherry.
bidet curious

sorry but after nearly 20 years on a rescue squad dead people sh!t and fart especially when you move them. once you smell that sometimes in a crowd or store you smell it again on living. i knew a guy that had a composting toilet and every time i went into it i could smell it. ven once in a while he would come into my shop and we could even smell it on him. not very bad but there. one time a guy told him and he got pissed as he did not smell it.

The real question is, how did he make that correlation?
I literally observed it in real time. However they were far more popular in Europe at the time and still are to this day. A majority of people in Europe use them today and is the norm. They've had trouble pushing this in the USA, but it is slowly getting adopted here. I don't believe it will ever go as mainstream as in the EU though due to people feeling similar ways as I do. I've known many people who've tried them, and couldn't take it. Felt weird they said, and will never try it again and then they raise their kids on TP.

Many of us are set in our ways and just prefer TP over Water as it's what we've always done.

The other reason I'd like a flushing toilet is to keep the smell out of the bus. Flushing toilets do a better job of this generally. Non flushing composting is still a turd in the near vacinity. Granted they do a MUCH better job today than when they first came around, but they are still no match for some of my bombs I may drop. I know some of you can relate.

Interesting. I've seen those Biogas bags you can buy where you throw your waste into it and it captures the methane off of it. Are these methane powered buses?

+1 for a bidet. Make it happen and I will soon copy. Nothing better than the clean from that cold jet stream.

I had an RV toilet + 65gal black tank on my first bus and truly didn't mind it. It's much less hands on than the composting toilet my wife and I had in our sprinter van, and I never had to clean overflowed piss out of the floor with the RV toilet.

If you're planning on traveling and using a fresh water supply, I'd personally shy away from a traditional toilet though for a few reasons, weight, big porcelain throne taking abuse from a severely aging infrastructure, unsecured tank lid, and gallons per flush. However, if I were staying stationary and had sewer or septic, hell yeah!

My wife and I are building a new bus for us and our daughter right now and we're about to start potty training, so we're considering the ceramic RV toilets, because god forbid we potty train on a diverting compost toilet and accidentally make a sludge in the solids tank by mixing the two wastes together.

LMAO. Nice! At least that one is optional, and not automatic when the toilet flushes.

If you get your hands muddy, what works better- wiping them off with paper towels or rinsing them with water? It's just water! It's an external wash, not an enema! Guess what- you control the water- the water doesn't control you.

And, yes, I bought my first one during the toilet paper shortage but never should have waited that long. So much more pleasant than handling the business yourself. Just spray away.

Portable bidets are available for travel, cause who likes the crappy (no pun intended) thin TP in restrooms and outhouses.
