Benefits of Using Bidets

You know that age old adage, “If a bird pooped on you, would you wipe it off with dry paper or would you wash it with water?” …Oh, you never heard of it? Coolcoolcool. But think about it. Water is the best way to clean just about everything – our dishes, our sick cars, our hair and body. So wouldn’t it make sense to clean our butts after we poop?

If someone crapped on your floor… would you wipe it with toilet paper? No, you’d probably don a hazmat suit, dump 5 quarts of bleach on it, and then set your whole house on fire. And rightfully so. Shit, crap, poop, booboo, whatever you choose to call it, is unsanitary and dangerous. The health risks of using toilet paper are exponential. Wiping with toilet paper leaves us stewing in our own mess. That skid mark that we’re collectively sitting on because we didn’t wash with TUSHY could lead to some real problems.

Using a bidet changes all that. A cleansing, soothing water wash leaves you clean and shower-fresh all day long. TUSHY can be adjusted to suit your personal needs and enjoyed by anyone: male, female, young, elderly, Slytherin and Gryffindor.

Besides offering great benefits to users, bidets also help protect the environment. Americans use over 34 million rolls of toilet paper every day which wastes precious resources and damages the environment and ecosystems that rely on trees. The TUSHY bidet reduces toilet paper consumption by 75 to 100% to give you not only a luxurious bathroom experience but also a green lifestyle.

Benefits for Women

HELPING WOMEN STAY CLEAN, EVERY STEP OF THE WAY

The TUSHY bidet, with its angle adjuster, leaves women feeling clean and rejuvenated. It is especially helpful during menstruation, and many women find the soothing properties of our bidet can help alleviate the discomforts associated with constipation, yeast infections, and urethra irritation. Vaginas are a doozy. TUSHY is particularly helpful during and after pregnancy to help soothe anal irritation, hemorrhoids and general discomfort. Many women also find the TUSHY bidet to be a comfortable and hygienic cleansing method following sexy-time. 😉


MENSTRUATION

TUSHY bidets are particularly useful during a period. All that blood, vaginal mucus and degenerated endometrial particles can feel very swampy. When this fluid comes in contact with bacteria in the air, it begins to decompose and can at times have a strong scent. The gentle cleansing of TUSHY can rinse and remove any odor and helps to make what can be an uncomfortable time of the month a little more pleasant.

YEAST / URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS

Yeast and urinary tract infections, aka the enemies of all women, can cause itching, discharge and unpleasant odor. While the TUSHY bidet can’t cure the infections, it can provide soothing relief from the symptoms during treatment.

PREGNANCY

The TUSHY bidet is ideal for pregnant women for many reasons:

Hemorrhoids - Due to increased weight gain during pregnancy, women often develop dreaded hemorrhoids. Oh you know, painful burning sensations, itching, swelling and bleeding all coming from your butt. Toilet paper often exacerbates hemorrhoid symptoms. The TUSHY bidet eliminates the need for abrasive toilet paper and keep the affected area clean, providing comfort and relief from tenderness and irritation.

Lack of Mobility - The changing shape and increased weight gain during pregnancy can make it awkward and difficult for expecting mothers to reach back there. TUSHY bidets provide excellent cleansing in both your vag and your booty.

Cleanliness Before and after Delivery - Women need extra help with cleanliness during pregnancy. Before the baby comes, women can experience the loss of the mucus plug, water breaking and loss of amniotic fluid. The gentle cleansing of the TUSHY bidet provides comfort and relief.

There are also massive physical changes that occur during the first few weeks after giving birth, many of which can be comforted by the TUSHY Classic and TUSHY Spa.

Benefits for Men

The soothing water of the TUSHY bidet helps relieve discomfort associated with constipation and hemorrhoids, and provides men with a means for improving their anal hygiene. So no more swamp, dingleberries clinging to your booty hairs or skidmarks.

Benefits for Seniors

The TUSHY bidet helps seniors retain independence with regard to a very personal and sensitive subject. Seniors who suffer from arthritis, incontinence or mobility problems now have an effective means of addressing their bathroom needs with our bidet toilet seat – without having to endure the potential indignity of relying on others.

More than 13 million people in the United States experience loss of bladder control, also known as urinary incontinence. It can happen to anyone, but is very common in older people. At least 1 in 10 people who are 65 or older experience this problem. Symptoms can range from mild leaking to uncontrollable wetting.

Incontinence is uncomfortable and embarrassing. The TUSHY bidet can help relieve those feelings by providing a quick and easy way to stay clean and fresh.

Benefits for Children

Even potty-trained children have difficulty properly cleaning themselves after using the toilet. The hygienic cleansing offered by TUSHY helps kids clean themselves more thoroughly and promotes awareness of the benefits of cleanliness. Plus, you don’t want your kid to be the one that smells like butts, right?

Medical Needs

LOSS OF MOBILITY

Loss of mobility, both temporary and permanent, can be painful, frustrating and often times make it difficult to perform everyday functions that were once very easy, such as going to the bathroom. Partial or total mobility loss may result from conditions such as arthritis, broken bones, Dupuytren’s disease and hernia and rectal surgery. Over 70 million Americans have some form of arthritis or joint inflammation, often translating to a serious debility that limits movement. TUSHY allows people suffering from conditions such as these to regain the comfort and dignity of using the toilet by themselves.

HEMORRHOIDS

Hemorrhoids are veins that swell and protrude around the anus. (Google at your own risk) The symptoms may include a painful burning sensation, itching, swelling and even bleeding. As many as 10 million Americans suffer from hemorrhoids; most of them between the ages of 45 and 65, but over half the population will experience them at some point in their lives. The good news is you can now find hemorrhoid relief without resorting to surgery! The TUSHY bidet eliminates the need for abrasive toilet paper when using the toilet. The TUSHY Spa can provide great relief from symptoms such as tenderness and irritation. Whereas sufferers with traditional toilets often dread going to the bathroom and try to wait as long as possible (causing further complications), TUSHY owners may actually look forward to using the toilet because it is a pleasant, soothing experience.

IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME AND INCONTINENCE

Skin care is very important for incontinent patients and those with IBS; however, cleaning with toilet paper or soap can dry and irritate anal tissue. The TUSHY bidet allows multiple washings without the increased skin abrasion and irritation caused by other methods… yea we’re talking about toilet paper and wet wipes. UGH.

CROHN’S DISEASE

Crohn’s disease causes inflammation and irritation in various parts of the gastrointestinal tract. With this condition can come a frequent need to use the toilet. TUSHY allows complete and gentle cleansing after each bowel movement without harsh, abrasive toilet paper.

Environmental Benefits

Americans make, move and use 34 million rolls of toilet paper… every day. The problem is not just the 54 million trees cut each year to keep up with demand, but also the enormous amounts of water, chemicals, and energy used in the destructive production process of toilet paper. DOWN WITH BIG TOILET PAPER!
