The reason we created it is because it's crazy that the toilet hasn't changed since 1890 and the way we clean ourselves hasn't changed since then either. Toilet paper came to US in 1890 and actually helps promote glorious things like hemorrhoids, urinary tract infections, yeast infections and just doesn't properly clean your butt. It's like the difference btwn wiping your teeth with toilet paper vs brushing your teeth. The former makes your teeth fall out and gives you cavities. The reason why people don't want to make the change is because it's taboo and people don't realize what a MASSIVE difference a precise gently spray of water makes vs using horrible TP. Not to mention, 27,000 trees get chopped down per day to make toilet paper and it requires 37 gallons of water to produce a single roll of toilet paper. It's nuts. All doctors say that the most hygienic thing you can do for yourself is get a bidet! Our Tushy product attaches to a toilet in less than 10 minutes and requires no electrical or plumbing to install it. All parts are included and it's literally the most game changing thing you can do (for $54 no less). Upgrade yourself from the 1890s, trust me, I would not be doing this unless I really really believe in its value.

@twinmiki Amen. If you get mud on you, you take a shower. You don't get clean using nothing but a towel. Yet, people apply this backwards logic to the bathroom. Toilets in America are barbaric compared to what I've heard they have in Japan. Bidets are the future.

I bought something similar on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product... (there are tons) but it didn't fit on my toilet so I was bummed. How is this one any different?

@300mhz Good question. How is this different... and more expensive than the less than $40 ones on Amazon?

@garyfung haha thanks for reviving this. As an update my 40 dollar bidet now works in my new apartment and it's excellent

@300mhz good to know. Which one did you buy, the one you linked on amazon?

@garyfung yup, exact same one. Just make sure you can easily remove your toilet cover and you'll be good.

Love the copywriting and branding (and the product looks cool, too)... but looking at this begs the question: Why not just try to be the company that imports Korean/Japanese high tech toilet seats (which are more common than non-tech toilet seats in those countries) and be the one to make them mainstream in the U.S.? Their technology is so much more advanced (and so much more cost-effective) at this point ... it seems like you're doing the legwork for them to generate demand in the U.S. ... and then they'll swoop in and dominate the market with their bidet/heated/heated dry/perfume mist/etc. toilet seats.

@paul_hq Nobody is down to pay $600-$2000 on Japanese toilets, not to mention have to pay for plumbing and electrical costs to install, not to mention most metropolitan people live in rentals. Tushy costs $54, takes 10 minutes to attach to any standard toilet and is way more relevant brand-wise than any bidet product on the market.
