There is little in the way of pure, peaceful and relaxing toiletry like the Japanese bidet. This item is also known by other names, including that of the washlet, and it is incredibly common to see in Japan. Pretty much every single home has at least one and they are constantly using its pure pleasures for their hygiene and just plain enjoyment.
There are many features that differentiate the Japanese bidet, or washlet, from its more western counterparts. We shall now discuss these in a bit more detail.
A Musical Accompaniment
If you are doing your business on the toilet, then you know it can get awfully boring in there. One thing that helps me deal with it when I have “barbarians at the gate,” as I call it, is to listen to encouraging music. This is very common in Japan for instance, where public bathrooms frequently play music to help you on your way. One thing that is nice about this technique is that the music can really pound out loud, so it covers the sound you make if you are ill or just plain noisy when you excrete your wastes. It is also enough to drown out the sound of the water running from the bidet, as some people are just plain shy about their toilet habits. It’s a great idea and an awesome function that will keep your bathroom visits regular and businesslike.
From Wet to Dry: Air Pressure
One thing that is obnoxious about some types of bidets is the fact that they use water, and plenty of it, to wash out your anus. One tends to be a little drippy after a session of cleansing, and often before you would have to tidy up with a swift toilet paper square to the backside. Well, you do not need to worry about that anymore because now Japanese bidets will shoot some air up your butt and dry it off nice and quick. It’s very useful and takes away any necessity of a cloth by the bidet. Now, just leave your feces behind like they are a thing of the past, and you’re done. There is no muss and no fuss.
Keep Those Cheeks Warm
Nobody likes sitting on a cold toilet seat, and no one likes a stream of cold water violating their rectum. I am no stranger to this particular issue, because my old bidet felt like it was shooting shards of ice up my butt. I don’t have to worry about that anymore, because since I bought a Japanese bidet, I’ve been spoiled with their heated seats. This is particularly nice during Winter, when cold temperatures can get a little nippy on your privates.
The Japanese bidet is taking over where the Belgian bidet left off: advancing our toilet habits around the corner and finally into the new Millennium. Buy one of these bad boys, clip them to the toilet, sit down and enjoy the refreshments. There’s a new bidet in town, and you aren’t going to be able to stop using it. It will bring a smile to your face every time you have to take some time out for some good old fashioned rest and relaxation.
