I just read one of the funniest blog posts ever by Paul at Kitchen and Residential Design. A reader sent in a question about bidets and couldn’t even bring herself to use the word “bidet”. Probably because “every time I see one they just scream out to me "We have lots of s*x and don't shower afterwards".”
So anyway, Paul’s reply cracked me up (whoops, sorry, bad pun there—totally unintentional, I swear!!) and gave me pause to reflect for a moment upon that naughty piece of ceramic in the bathroom… the bidet.
We have a bidet in our master bath because we have lots of sex and don’t shower afterwards ;-) Hahahah!!! No, just kidding. I’ve never actually used it. In fact, I’m a bit intimidated by it. I can just envision me with my bare butt hovering above the spout and water spraying all over the bathroom as it rebounds off my smooth, soft, supple butt skin. (Don’t try to envision that yourself—it’s not a pretty sight!!)
But we’ve found other uses for our bidet. It makes a great doggie water fountain. I tried to get a picture of Squirt drinking from it, but she refused to perform. So this pic from Flickr will have to do (as you can see, a bidet can also double as a fish tank):
At parties, we gather around the bidet and see how high we can make the water shoot up:
Another party-related use… beer cooler:
A bidet can be a fun kiddie plaything too. For example, Bidet Barbie (also known as Barbie Spa Day)…
Car Wash Bidet…
And the ever-popular Wash Your DVD Bidet…
So as you can see, you can use a bidet for many things besides cleaning yourself up after lots of sex ;-)
Don’t have a bidet?? Never fear—you can always install a Biffy and enjoy all the pleasures of a bidet at a fraction of the cost:
They love their Biffy!!!
