For those who are new to bidets, it can be quite confusing to use a bidet.
Are bidets sanitary, do you use a bidet after peeing, and how to sit on a bidet are some of the questions I get to listen to almost every day?
And I get it.
For someone who has never used a bidet before and is using it for the first time, it can be little.
One such question I came across is:
Can I poop in a bidet?
Yes, you can poop in a bidet. but It has to be the right one.
You can poop in the bidet seat and attachment but not on the standalone bidet.
Because the bidet attachment and the bidet seats are mounted over a toilet and used toilet flush system to clean the toilet bowl, so you can poop in them.
But the stand-alone bidet is installed beside a toilet and is meant for washing purposes only. So do not use it for pooping.
Let us look into it in detail.
Types of Bidet and Which One Can Be Used For Pooping
Well as mentioned above, there are three main types of bidets you will get to see today.
- Standalone bidet
- Bidet Toilet Seat
- Bidet Attachment
Stand Alone bidet
A stand-alone bidet looks something like both, a sink and a toilet bowl. It is installed beside a toilet and has separate plumbing. It doesn’t have a flushing system like a traditional toilet. Thus, it can’t be used for pooping.
Nowadays, the more modern bidets are wall-mounted, whereas the traditional ones are mostly floor mounted.
Bidet Toilet Seat
It is the most popular variant of bidets nowadays.
They are bidet seats installed over your regular toilet after removing the stock seat.
They come in electric and non-electric variants.
You will wither find an attached control system or a remote control system to control the water spray.
If the bidet toilet seat is an electric variant, then you will find some great features like seat heating, air dryer, night light, etc.
Since they are installed on the traditional bidets, they use the toilet’s flush system to flush waste away. So you can poop in this bidet type.
As the name suggests, they are attachments that have a built-in water sprayer and control system in them.
They are non-electric equipment and attached to a regular toilet.
Similar to bidet seats, they to are installed on regular toilets.
Hence you can poop on the toilet with these bidet attachments.
I hope this article was helpful in identifying the type of bidet that can be used for pooping.
If you are planning to buy a bidet, I high recommend the bidet toilet seat.
They work as both, a bidet and a toilet seat. And they come with many features like seat heating, different wishing modes, an air dryer, and a self-cleaning nozzle.
Do bidets spray poop on your balls?
No, they don’t! Most of the bidets have sophisticated water spray systems that smoothly spray water at your bum.
The spray nozzles have different washing water for different throw intensities, but none of them are so strong to spray poop on your private part or create a mess around the bidet.
So no, bidets do not spray poop in your balls.
Do you need to wipe if you use a bidet?
No, It is not necessary to wipe if you use a bidet.
The water wand/nozzle sprays water to the water bum to clean all the debris. You might need to adjust your sitting position to get a perfect aim.
Although you might need to use toilet paper after you use a bidet, not to clean poop, but to dry off water from your bum.
Do bidets spray poop everywhere?
No! bidets don’t spray poop everywhere.
That is because:
1. Bidets use finely targeted and pressurized water to clean your butt.
2. Most of the standard bidets come with a self-cleaning wand/nozzle that cleans itself before and after every use
3. The water nozzle is retractable in every bidet. It comes out only when you need it, i.e. at the time of cleaning.
