Bidets may also be used to clean any other part of the body, such as feet. Despite appearing similar to a toilet, it would be more accurate to compare it to the washbasin or bathtub. Bidets once served as a practical way for couples to prepare themselves before sex, as well as to rinse themselves afterwards.
French furniture makers apparently invented the bidet in the late 17th century. The earliest written reference to the bidet is in 1710, in Italy. By 1900, due to plumbing improvements, the bidet (and chamber pot) moved from the bedroom to the bathroom. This was common in French palaces.
The early 1980s saw the introduction of the electronic bidet from Japan, and in 1928, John Harvey Kellogg applied for a patent on an “anal douche”.
Toilet paper can be harmful to the sensitive skin in the perineal area, whereas the water of a bidet offers relief, while cleaning the area more effectively. From an environmental standpoint, bidets reduce the need for toilet paper, saving households money on paper products while reduce their carbon footprint.
