Italians, bidets and sodomy

The Italians are obsessed with bidets. They dismiss as dirty the people of any country that does not provide bidets in every bathroom, whether public or private. As a Briton who lives in their midst, I believe it is not simply because sodomy is so popular with straight Italian couples. Italians use the bidet not only to cleanse their bodies but also their souls. The bidet is a bit like the confessional. It may not absolve sins like a priest, but it kind of washes them away. Like so much else in Italy, the confession booth included, the bidet encourages but does not deter sin.

You would think that in a country so mired in corruption, the Italian state would have little time to waste on prosecuting the innocent. You would be wrong. In Italy, criminal investigations are run by prosecuting judges who spend much of their time hounding the innocent on the grounds that everyone is guilty of something.

These judges have terrifying powers.

  1. We use Bidet4me Toilet Seat Attachment at home. It's non-electric require and very easy to install. They have 2 model MB-1000 (Fresh Water Spray) and MB-2000 (Warm Water Spray, Dual Nozzles). I install one each at home and both work GREAT and We save some money on Toilet Paper spend plus it's GREEN

  2. :) In Cambodia they just use soap and water. Once you get used to it, you realize this is much cleaner.
