Toilet bidet is a plumbing fixture / device used to wash and clean the external genitalia, the anus, and surrounding skin. Bidet is a personal cleansing method utilizing a stream of water, which is more hygienic and beneficial than the use of toilet paper.
The word bidet was first used in the 15th century to refer to the pet ponies kept by the French royalty. During the 19th century the Europeans developed porcelain cleaning device for contraceptive and medicinal uses. This was called bidet because its shape resembled that of a pony. Over time, the use of this bidet has evolved into a personal cleansing method for improved sanitation and personal hygiene.
