How important is this when engaging in sex or looking for a partner? This applies to straight/bi/gay men and women. Also, how do you feel about bidets? Do you have one installed and would you ever get one? If you don't have one, do you make it a habit to take a shower immediately after defecating or is wiping enough? This might sound like a joke thread, but seriously, it's not. I am really curious. No one really talks about this because it's a subject most people want to remain secretive about or find unpleasant. How can one argue that tissue alone is enough to be really clean back there? Toilet paper, even if one wipes well, can't clean everything completely. Water or water and soap along with wiping works the best. I know the average person doesn't have access to a shower anytime they are out and have to do more than piss, but I personally know some people who DO try to wait until they can get home so that they can take a shower immediately after as a substitute for not having a bidet. So I am curious, what are your habits and what do you demand from a partner? Even interested in hearing from those that are in the minority and might be more lax about or desirous of less rigid ass hygiene. I don't share that view, but I realize not everyone has the same habits or is disgusted by the same things.
