    I thought bidets were just for cleaning that area...not for cleaning it after poop time. My understanding was that those areas were important enough to deserve their own altar. In the same way we have a sink for our faces and teeth.

    Plus it feels great to dunk your undercarriage in a warm pool of water.

    I'm not sure about that because presumably you'd wash you hands either way?

    but they give a much deeper cleanse, that's true. It's like the effect of a shower each time.

    Like a hose on a very basic level, but perfectly adapted to its purpose.

    Yeah, that's what I had thought too - it's kind of a stop gap for actually having a shower.

    Bidets are absolutely superior.

    Ah. Given that extra info, I could see how bidet would be better. I never knew TP was part of the bidet process.

    *Usually* you first painstakingly clean with toilet paper, and use the bidet as a very much finishing touch, which is however essential in providing complete cleanliness.

    This. It's unfathomable to me how that isn't the default in any developed country. Might as well call yourselves barbarians and use your hair as an all-purpose towel.

    For what it's worth, taking a large wad of toilet paper and wetting it in warm water (assuming the sink is within arm's reach) .... Works, but tends to clog the toilet easily.
