Because it's too darned cold here most of the time to risk it. No one likes chapped skin, and nappy rash is badon babies and definitely not good for adults.

They’re also a bit primitive. Heaven knows what clogs up that spout. But, if you prefer using your hand rather than toilet paper, I suppose there’s little alternative.

We have bidets for those who wish to wash their nether regions after using the toilet.
I don't think the Brits have ever really come to grips with the bidet - far too continental. I think it was probably the 1970's that they suddenly became the thing to add to a refurbished bathroom, but many became little more than a footbath or somewhere to display a large house plant. I would question how many UK homes still have a bidet, and certainly how many UK homes that have a bidet that is used for purpose.

I think if a bidet or a water hose were in a bathroom for sole personal use, they might be more acceptable, but as an item intended for shared/communal hygiene use...nah... not for me thank you.

Not if they've been connected to the hot water as mine have been. Steam boiled nuts is not one of my 'wants'
