A bidet (pronounced bi?de?/) is a receptacle or bowl you use to clean your anus, genitalia, or inner buttocks, usually after using the toilet. Even though they are becoming common in the US, bidets have been a common feature in many bathrooms globally, especially in Asia, Europe, and South America.

Why do the people in these regions prefer the bidet over toilet paper? This is because, compared to toilet paper, water is considered gentler on the sensitive parts that you need to clean after using the toilet. Also, water is likely to leave you cleaner than toilet paper does.
