Are Bidets Worth It?
Before advances in bidet technology, they were a tough sell in America because typically there weren't pipes in the walls to install them.
In the 1960s, one of the best bidets ever was invented by an American, Arnold Cohen, aka "Mr. Bidet." When he started selling his new creation in the US, he found 99% of Americans had never heard or seen a bidet, which made selling them a difficult proposition.
Today there are multiple ways to get a bidet in your bathroom. You can buy bidets that attach to your toilet. People even walk around with their own bottle bidets, which...is a little bizarre.
And while a bidet may feel refreshing on your butthole, there's no evidence that they actually do a better job of cleaning your ass than wiping.
Dr. John Swartzberg, a clinical professor emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley, told Wirecutter there's no hard evidence that bidets make your ass any cleaner or less germ-ridden than wiping.
