I don't think I'd trust a public bidet but I'd totally get one on my private throne, no prob. For now, though, it's all about the wet naps.
    Yeah, well, in Italy bidets are standard in private houses but there is none in public bathrooms, so I don't think there's much need for that extension...

    Which makes sense given how often people talk about kicking someone in the ass.

    how can you even compare. there's no matching for the powers of the bidet. first toilet paper, then wash that ass!

    Here in Britain, it's very hard to find a bidet. I miss them greatly. I can't believe a first world country, and everyone still relies on the barbaric method of toilet paper. WTF?

    the only explanation is that the English are all repressed homosexuals and a small shot of water in their anus would "convert" them.

    The price is, 10 times longer spent in the bathroom.

    Vote away.
    I've lived in the United States all my life and they don't have them here, at least not in the area where I live. I actually had to Google to find it what it is. Now that I know what it is, I can vouch for its superiority over toilet paper.

    If TP is used in conjunction with a bidet, then the poll is pointless; of course having both is better.

    If its an either/or situation, I'd choose toilet paper; you know when you're finished, and you don't feel like your ass is leaking.

    .. It seems so... time consuming. I just watched a video on how to work a bidet.. It seems a bit nice, but impractical. I could see it being a plus the same way I see a bath tub being a plus--some times it is nice to have the bath tub vs just showering. I could see it being way more comfortable in feeling fresher after doing some serious business.

    I don't know how it's considered greener at all unless you dry off with a towel and completely stop the use of toilet paper. Otherwise, it's toilet paper x2 (once before and after again to dry) and a bunch of running water. My frugal senses see something wrong there with that math. Also, I don't really find it all that hygienic to wash everything a bazillion times a day. I can understand some common sense factors--wash your hands after going to the bathroom or before eating, take a shower of some sort daily, etc. But I just don't feel the need to apply water and soap to my body after I do any little thing in my day. I think over washing can do some damage to lady parts as well.. So it'd have to be just water.
