Bidets are bathroom plumbing fixtures designed for the purposes of washing a human’s genital or anal area. Typically located next to a toilet for cleaning the body after use, bidets consist of a spray nozzle located within the basin and valves for adjusting and controlling the water temperature and power. To use a bidet, users have the option to straddle the bidet by facing the wall and valve controls, or to sit facing outward. Bidets have long been popular throughout southern Europe and South America, but have also become common for aging populations that need greater assistance in the bathroom. Bidet-like spray features have also begun to be incorporated into some high end tech-enabled toilets.
