It seems as though the world has finally caught up to the decade-old invention that is the 'shatafa,' which has evolved from an ol' blue pot to a fancy bidet to an odd looking hose contraption with a metallic nozzle.
According to 'experts,' toilet paper just doesn't cut it when it comes to completely removing fecal matter off our anuses.
Moreover, doctors have repeatedly warned against excessive wiping, saying that it can cause health problems such as anal fissures and urinary tract infections.
"I find it rather baffling that millions of people are walking around with dirty anuses while thinking they are clean," said Rose George, author of The Big Necessity: The Unmentionable World of Human Waste and Why It Matters, in an interview with Tonic in January.
"Toilet paper moves s***, but it doesn’t remove it."
Countries such as Japan, Italy, and Greece were praised for using bidets... but what about Arab and Muslim countries?
We've been using water to clean our behinds for a long, long time. So, where's our credit?
