Toilet Seat Bidets

Updated on January 31, 2010

The first time I saw a bidet I had absolutely no idea what it was; I was about 6 years old at the time I think I thought one toilet had broken and that's why there was a new toilet sitting right beside it. And I can remember being totally confused when my mother explained its purpose. Apart from that first time, I've probably only seen 4 or 5 bidets since that time because Americans just don't tend to have such things in their homes -- or didn't used to, anyway. Bidets are actually becoming more and more popular these days, particularly since you needn't buy a freestanding bidet to have the luxury in your loo. You can just do like so many of your friends and neighbors are doing and purchase a specially designed toilet seat with an integrated bidet.

How do toilet seat bidets work?

You simply hook your toilet seat bidet up to your toilet and then use it to clean yourself after you've used the toilet. Some models will vary but most of them will squirt a stream of water upward and then you freshen yourself up until you've reached the desired level of hygiene.

Not just for the poo!

A lot of people associate bidet use with tidying up after a poo, but that's a waste of a perfectly good bidet. Bidets can be used anytime one wants to freshen up, whether after tinkling, freshening up during the menstrual cycle, freshening up before or after acts of intimacy, etc. Basically they're brilliant for anytime you'd want to clean yourself up without having to pop into the bath or shower.

Loads of models to choose from.

You can get a cheap model with one or two controls and options, or you can opt for a mega luxurious spa-esque bidet seat that offers all sorts of upper class features which can include a built in deodorizer, heated seats, auto cleanup and even a hot air dryer for your bits once you've finished the scrubbing up.

How cheap and how expensive?

You can get a quality toilet seat bidet from a company like Luxe for less than 100 bucks. Or, you can get a top of the line model for 1000 bucks or more. It really all depends on what you want, but at the end of the day all models do the same thing -- keep you far more fresh than you'd be without one!
