Video: Thank god, it's the Comfort Wipe

Actually, Comfort Wipe, I think living in bodies that must use the bathroom at all is archiac. Can you fix that?

And sorry, chubby dude, I do not hate on the portly types, but I really don't think there's any "advantages" to being overweight. Unless you don't like to wipe your own ass in the first place.

Thank god they weren't suggest what I first thought they were suggesting, which was to also use it as a shower brush. [via The Awl]

  1. Yeck, the curve seems all wrong and it seems all-too-easy to position a little off and, erp, gotta scrub the Comfort Wipe again… Thank god I have this Get-A-Grip to help me steady myself over the sink!

    *RALPH*

  2. If they really wanted to improve the act of cleaning our posterior, they’d find some way to get Americans to accept using a bidet. Yet another thing that large portions of the world use regularly, but is effectively a myth in the US.

    There’s really only two ways to do it.. wipe it off, or spray it off, and if wiping it is “disgusting” the logical course becomes obvious.

  3. After I’ve been outside for hours, toiling in dirt and muck, I like to use limp, dry paper to wipe the filth away. I’m all clean after that.

    I also need to prop myself against a tree, in a sitting position, to defecate.

    I’m all for progress, but something really went wrong for us Westerners when it came to pooping.

  4. don’t make fun of the sick or infirm (or, I suppose, the fat) because someday, you may be them.

    It seems like a good product that’s really hard to talk about.

  5. I thought I was going to see boobies during that Get-A-Grip portion.
    This product makes no sense to me. I get the sense now that Americans are completely out of touch with their anuses.

  6. BTW, for the Comfort Wipe to be usable in the bath, you’d have to take a Golden Shower.

    I’m here all week.

  7. @1 This sort of device is already common in Occupational Therapy for use by people with various physical issues. Marketing it to able people who think normal asswiping is gross is just dumb.

  8. The testimonial after “large guy with blue shirt” reminded me of the mother from The Critic. Wonder if that lady ever has to deal with “El Kabong!”

  9. …I have three female slaves who wipe my ass when necessary. It’s great, and I recommend everyone should get at least one to do the job for you.

  10. For the certain disabilities this could indeed be beneficial.
    But something about the way they say “extends you reach a full 18 inches”…

    How many folks will be inserting it all the way up to the comfortgrip?

  11. I bet this product would be of big help to Centaurs.

  12. Perky Saleslady: “Think about it. Toilet paper is really archaic and disgusting!”

    So you’re selling us a handle to stick it onto? Not a great sales pitch.

    And yes, I’d buy a bidet in a hot second (especially the glorious Toto Washlet) if they didn’t cost upwards of $800.

  13. I’m sure it has its uses. As far as the shower brush analogy goes, save the money and double up – use it in the shower with your right hand and to wipe yourself with your left hand.

  14. First major improvement in toilet paper since the 1800s? Obviously they haven’t seen the super-perfumed toilet paper with stupid little flowers printed on them.
