Bidets, explained.

Elliot Friar

So, like, what is a bidet?

Butt spray. Heaven on your booty. Fountain of fun for your bum. These are just a few ways to describe the glorious function of the modern bidet (pronounced: bidd-DAY). Old bidets were basically basin-buckets or bowls with water to clean your tush, but the bidets of today (like TUSHY, a sleek bidet attachment for your toilet) spray your bum for a clean finish every. time. you poop.


But what does that butt spray actually feel like?

You might be wondering how a bidet sprays your bum. Does it come out with the force of a thousand fire hoses and leave your entire backside dripping wet? Nay, says the bidet. TUSHY easily attaches to your toilet, uses no electricity, and provides a gentle and concentrated stream of refreshing H2O aimed right where the doo is done. Ahhh… even typing that sentence makes me feel relaxed. Honestly, sometimes I just sit on the toilet, turn on my TUSHY, and zen out.


Aren’t bidets only for fancy rich people?

No! They’re for the 99%! Bidets are commonly seen as a luxury, especially in western culture where toilet paper is unfortunately king. Home and business owners used to have to invest in installation for a traditional modern bidet, but the innovation of a sleek bidet attachment from TUSHY allows you and all of your friends to enjoy clean buns.


Hmmm… okay. But are bidets healthy?

This stream of cleanliness not only feels good, but it is also good for you. New York University microbiologist and pathologist Philip Tierno puts it pretty plainly: “Toilet paper itself, when used alone, is not the most hygienic way to wipe your anus after defecation.” Bidets, on the other cheek, can prevent you from being butt hurt (literally) in many different ways, including preventing hemorrhoids, anal itching, anal fissures, UTIs, and yeast infections for women. Gastroenterologist Dr. John Cluley says bidets would "obviously be great relief for someone who has to go frequently," especially people with Crohn's and ulcerative colitis. We’re not just saying bidets are healthy because we sell bidets, we’re saying it because doctors say it, like Dr. Manisha Juthani-Mehta who is an infectious-disease specialist at Yale.


This sounds amazing but what about all of that water waste?

It takes 37 gallons to produce one roll of toilet paper, and only one eighth of a gallon for every use of a TUSHY bidet. You do that dirty math. Additionally, we’re cutting down those poor trees (1.5 pounds of wood per roll) and putting harmful chemicals like bleach into the environment to make our toilet paper white.


Here’s the low-down on bidets.

    • Bidets are better for you.
    • Bidets are better for the environment.
    • Bidets feel better than wiping.
    • Also, every TUSHY sold helps in the fight against the global sanitation crisis with our give-back program.
