Why Don't Americans Use Bidets?
Invented centuries ago in France, the bidet has never taken off in the States. That might be changing.
Fascinating read on bidets
“Throughout this bidet boom, the United States resisted its appeal, and the reason might have been the power of first impressions. Americans were introduced to bidets on a broad scale during World War II, when troops were stationed in Europe. GIs visiting bordellos would often see bidets in the bathrooms, so they began to associate these basins with sex work. Given America’s puritanical past, it makes sense that, once back home, servicemen would feel squeamish presenting these fixtures to their homeland.”Posted on 2018-10-22T03:45:36+0000
