GoBidet: simple pump for a simple rump

gobidet-sm.jpg

Japan’s robo-toilets are legendary, and indeed models like the Toto Washlet offer top-quality anus-hosing action. (Although their real strength is the hot air drier.) But importing one costs at least $500 — more if you want the hot air flap chapper — and they’re unsightly, ruining the simple lines of a toilet and making it feel like you’re taking a dump in a refrigerator.

Consider instead the “GoBidet“, an elegantly simple chrome unit that fastens to the side of your existing toilet. A small handle moves its spigot into place — “In the pipe, five-by-five” — while another turns on the water. (This water should be warm if you want to experience all a bidet has to offer.)

You’ll forgo the hot air drier, but your bathroom won’t look like an appliance store, either. Best of all, it’s available for just $115 from many suppliers.

The below video shows the GoBidet in action (sans user) as well as basic installation.

    Oh, come on now! I only do this when I’m drunk, OK? Or if I really need to go.

    Bidets FTW.

    It’s cleaner and more environmentally friendly than pumping papers wads through the system.

    Not to mention the fantastic butt-fresh feeling.

    #4: Werd. Right there with ya buddy.

    @1:

    Wireless Remote?

    So you can control your toilet from… where, exactly?

    I think it should be Chap Flapper as opposed to Flap Chapper. Steamed Starfish anyone?

    You don’t need to import Toto Washlets into the US; they’re already available here, with English labels. Also, many of the current models have wireless remotes rather than a side control panel (see totousa.com).

    As the proud owner of a Toto Washlet (the basic, non-ass-drying model) – which my wife won through a Time Out New York giveaway – I can vouch for the life-changing effect of a home buttwasher. It’s more awesome than you’d think.

    That said, the real killer app of the Toto is the heated seat. Mmmmmm, heated seat.

    I also like to think the aesthetic is more Star Trek helm than appliance, so if I’m ever heard shouting “make it so!” from my bathroom, that’s what’s up.

    i can’t believe you used an Aliens quote to hype a bidet

    ROSSINDETROIT@7, apart from surprising house guests, the wireless remote is just a way to avoid hanging a control panel off the side of the bowl, which some people don’t have room for and others don’t like the looks of.

    What they really need, though, is a holographic, “heads up” display…

    A cold-water bidet? No thanks, I prefer warm water :-)

    Wish I had one of these. It would make sex much more comfortable and easy. Yes, I’m gay.

    Amazon has a number of washlets from Toto, Brondell, and others, including a $91 “portable washlet” by Toto. Down with paper butt cleaning!
