Okay, I searched the forums and found a many threads that mentioned bidets, but not much on actual technique.
I consider myself fairly well experienced in many things, but this has got me stumped. My wife’s parents have recently become somewhat wealthier than they used to be and are conducting extensive renovations to their home. They have recently remodeled their bathroom and the results are wonderful. One feature that my mother in law insisted upon is a bidet. Now, I understand what it is for, but I’m not clear on technique or etiquette.
[li]Okay, I’m a guy. How does a gentleman of the world use the bidet?[/li][li]My wife is a gal. How does this technique differ for her?[/li][li]I’ve always believed that no job worth doing is complete until the paperwork is done. Does the bidet make traditional paperwork obsolete?[/li][li]After the wash, how does one dry? My mother-in-law says that two towels will be hanging on a nearby cabinet. This has filled my wife and me with horror.[/li][li]My MIL has also said that the bidet makes an excellent foot bath. Is this a typical use for this device?[/li][/ol]
So, there you have it. I bidet has entered our lives and I am at a loss as to what to do with it. Generally, I suspect that I will ignore it. I’ve lived this long without one. I see no reason to change. However, if this is truly a wonderful experience, I’m all for giving it a try. I suspect I will make a complete mess.
I hope that all you sophisticated bidet devotees have now had a nice laugh and will lend me your expertise in this area. Thank you for your help.
