What’s a Bidet? And Why Should You Get One?


toilet and bidet

Do you know what a bidet is? You should have one if you’re a man who likes spending quality time in your bathroom showering, shaving, and doing business when nature calls.

The funny thing is that they’re widespread in Europe, Asia, and South America. They’re in many households, hotels, and business establishments. You can find them in America, but they’re not as commonplace as they could be and should be.

You can use a bidet to replace a traditional toilet, or it can be attached to your existing toilet. When installed in your bathroom, you can sit on it, do your business when nature calls, and then have the bidet use water to clean you up afterward. That means you won’t need toilet paper. It’s more sanitary than using the bathroom the traditional way.

Keep reading to learn about three reasons why every man needs a bidet. If you don’t have one, you’ll want one. And if you do have one, you’ll be thrilled you do.

1. Prostate Health

Did you know that around one in eight men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during this lifetime? The American Cancer Society estimates there will be around 268,490 new prostate cancer cases in 2022 and around 34,500 prostate cancer deaths in 2022. Prostate health is critical.

While a bidet won’t help prevent or treat prostate cancer, it can help prevent or treat bacterial prostatitis. Bacterial prostatitis is, while non-fatal, a painful condition caused by prostate infections. But here’s the thing. A bidet’s clean, efficient water stream can ward off prostate infection. So you can be saved from inflammation, swelling, and discomfort in your testicles, lower back, or even anus.

2. Clean Up Better

Using a bidet is also about cleaning up better. A bidet attachment or bidet toilet seat will wash your rear end completely. All you’ll need to do afterward is use toilet paper to pat yourself dry. You can also get a bidet with a drying feature to make things even easier.

If your backside is on the hairier side, you can’t afford to have fecal matter clinging to the hair. Yet that’s a possibility if you use the washroom the traditional way. After all, there’s only so much that you can expect by wrapping toilet paper around your hand and attempting to clean yourself up thoroughly — all without being able to see what you’re doing.

You won’t have to worry about this with a bidet. The steady stream of water will ensure your hiney is left nice and clean.

3. Treat Conditions Like Constipation and Hemorrhoids

A bidet can also help you with conditions like constipation and hemorrhoids. As for constipation, a bidet can help get you unplugged by squirting water into your anus. You’ll find it easier to empty your bowel. One study shows that using a bidet can lower constipation severity and issues related to constipation like anxiety and discomfort. A bidet can also help you to avoid getting hemorrhoids. But if you do get the condition, it can treat the painful and embarrassing condition.

You Need a Bidet!

If you don’t have a bidet, you need to consider getting one. A bidet won’t set you back an arm or a leg, but it will offer you many benefits for the investment. Once you buy one, you can either install it or hire a professional to do it for you. After you’ve bought one, installed it, and used it a handful of times, you’ll wonder why you waited so long. It’s something every man should have. You should at least look into the benefits to make an informed decision on the matter.
