Bidet Who Are You? The bidet is a sanitary installation which looks like a shallow toilet bowl with water taps. The purpose of the bidet is to clean up after you've done what you came to do in the toilet. The rationale here is that sometimes toilet paper isn't enough and you can't always shower after you went to the toilet. Enters: the bidet. I feel like I ...

I'm Portuguese and every bathroom has a bidet. Only the really small ones don't. It is something I find in European countries with Latin roots (specially Portugal, Spain, France and Italy). From personal experience and of others, it is not commonly used, although useful on those few times. The main uses are to clean: Your feet: Sometimes you come home ...

I won't add to the above answers, which have mostly covered the "What is it, how do I use it?" questions, so I'll go straight for the etiquette Bonus question: What is the social aspect of bidet usage in countries where they are widespread? Is it implicitly assumed everybody uses this device on a weekly/daily/hourly basis? It's like any other personal ...

As living in Southern Europe, bidets are pretty much ubiquitous at any home setting. Outside homes, they are only normally present in women's wcs, as it is assumed they have got to clean up themselves especially in that time of the month. I pretty much do not feel confy with them, and use only in those nasty days I go too many times to the toilet; ...

Bidets are in almost every bathroom here (Argentina), excepting public places. Their main usage is for anal (both sexes) and genital (women mostly) cleaning. They can replace or (more commonly) complement the toilet paper. Not everyone uses them, though. Other answers have covered the usage instructions. I wish to add some socially relevant points about ...

My understanding, having asked and been given a partial, embarrassed answer, would be that you assume a squatted position over the fixture, without lower body contact, then use the supplied water flow to wash your functional areas after discharging waste in the otherwise appropriate receptacle. Clear yet vague? Typically there is no paper supplied, so the ...

As a rule, capsule hotels are not set up for multi-day stays. However, this one appears to be an exception, and you can keep your locker during the day - with the major caveat of not being able to enter the hotel (and access your belongings) between 9:30AM and 4PM. Beware that capsule hotel lockers may be quite small and a full-size backpack may not fit. ...

You use it for cleaning your genital and anal areas. This may be BEFORE social (or sexual) meetings or after those areas become in need of cleaning (just a long day since you showered, after sex, exercise, bowel movements or urination, during your menstruation,,, basically when you feel you need it.) I suspect with the widespread adoption of panty pads, that ...

Not unless you are trying to rent one during a busy holiday Generally as long as the company has cars to rent, you can rent them without a reservation. Stock usually runs low during holidays, long weekends and local festival days and as such this is a time where you should reserve a car. Renting in the greater Tokyo area is usually painless but does ...

As for all rental accommodation, it depends on the contract you have with the company you rent from. Unless you find the rules for your owner, you can go by general rules. No links as this is what I was brought up with. For a short rental: If nothing was said in the paperwork you empty the trash, make sure all dishes are washed and leave the caravan in a ...
