If permitted, can we discuss peoples thoughts on (our product) bidets and add-on bidet systems?

With a really straight face and serious mien, what would you like to talk about in relation to said devices?
From my own point of view, I cannot see the purpose of bidets. I know that they aren't very popular in the UK (hence my own view, I suppose), though in continental Europe they are much more so.

Let's just see if ONE thread can stay sensible given the subject material involved...>

I'm trying to conduct some market research on our company's latest product, but if you also want to have a laugh...that's fine.

But what kind of MR?
Is there a questionnaire? What questions do you want answering?

In relation to the the product itself and its features and benefits etc., as outlined on the website www.bidet-loo.co.uk would you purchase/use such a system.

Personally, no I wouldn't buy one.
Like I said, in the UK bidets have never really been in common usage so the obstacle here would be getting people to use them.
My experiences with bidets are confined to 5 minutes of playing with them whenever I first go to my room in a European hotel, or idly playing with them when I'm using the other thing next to it (see how high you can make the water go) :)
Having said that, personal hygiene is very important to me but in the UK it just doesn't involve bidets.
Incidentally, the last hotel I stayed in that had them was in Italy (near Chamonix). It was a really old 16th century place. The best use we found for the bidets was turning them on full when someone was in the shower in the next room :)

Well as I've spent most of my life in th UK I'm in the never owned a bidet group. I must admit when in hotels on the continent I tend to use the usually seperate bidet more as a foot bath than as an alternative to paper wipping.
Would I buy one, NO. Would I use one of your combined units if I was in a house with one, probably yes, but I have to admit I have never really worked out what you are supposed to 'dry' with after using one, paper or towel? Perhaps one day if I suffer from some of the ailments you say they are good for I would revist the question, but until then I guess I'm just a 3-ply kind a guy :)

About the only time I have seen them is in the movies. I had to goto the website to even know what you were talking about.
I guess that shows how much use there is in the states.
