Bidets creep me out.
I don’t like looking at them and I certainly don’t want to touch one. I find that I am unable to treat them with the uninterested indifference that I am able to approach other inherently disgusting things…like toilets and maxi pads. Why do they gross me out so thoroughly and other things do not? Perhaps because they are necessities and a bidet is not?
Or is it?
My dislike has led me to never, ever have the desire to try one.
I just don’t understand the appeal.
And yet, they have been in every single hotel in Italy that I have slept in, which seems to imply that washing one’s butt is wildly popular here.
And so, I wonder, has anyone out there actually tried one? And if so, what did you think?
