    I've been looking at Totos for a couple of months, they have a much more limited product range here in the states, because of shipping costs (plus the US has problems with advancing technology in this area)... Heated seats, retractible bidet, ultraclean surface... very sanitary...

    surprisingly reasonable prices, including shipping... couple grand will get you a decent model...

    Finally, in a few years I may never have to wipe my own ass again! What will those crazy Japanese think of next! :D

    I want one sooooooooo bad!

    That sounds absolutely amazing...

    Can't wait for them to arrive in the US.

    these toilets are so perfect that in addition to automatic hinges in many cases, they have special hinges to slow the seat and prevent it from thudding down. If Apple made a toilet, this would be it.

    That sad, I don't want my **s sprayed by nozzles!

    How do I know the computer wasn't hacked and someone set on high power?

    :AHHHHHHH:

    :rolleyes:

    It sounds cool in theory, but I really would need to try one before buying... :cool:

    But I think after trying one, we'd never want to wipe our asses again!

    I mean, this should have been coming awhile now. This should have been standard technology since before the automatic coffee maker.

    The idea of sitting down, doing your business, getting up and pulling your trousers back up without ever using your hands is something that shouldn't be exceptional. Think of the money we'll save on antibacterial [insert product such as lotion, soap, wipes, etc. here]!

    The Toto sounds great, a self service system. Hopefully American companies will develop something similar. I would like to have a bidet, but not another unit in the bathroom. Wonder if they would catch on in the US?

    -C'mon Kohler!

    Catch this bug!

    I'll drive up and grab one instantly - just make sure you build in cheek rotators, and maybe a pucker - I love having my a** kissed.

    don't forget, toto also makes a range of other products, they have those nice faucets that mix the hot and cold water and give you warm water right when you stick your hands under it. I don't even want to think how filthy the handles are when you turn them off, since you've already washed your hands, then you spread the faucet germs onto the hand towel. In 100 years, they'll think our 'modern' bathroom was unspeakably unsanitary...

    Yeah I just want to try one before I were to buy one.


    But this is just another lazyness thing.

    Anyone who can't whipe there own _ss (would you like to buy a vowel?) is just lazy, meh.

    Do it yourself.

    i like fecal matter spread throughout my entire house, too.

    it's not an act of convenience, it's an act of sanitation. Like those hot-air dryers, they're not supposed to save people the trouble of drying their hands-- just to keep clean hands from touching dirty surfaces, and spreading it to other surfaces for other people to come in contact with...

    I'm not entirely sure a bidet is supposed to totally replace wiping one's ass? i thought they were more for "female refreshment"... but if they did the job, it would also cut down on paper consumption.

    Well according to the specs, these toilets are really water efficient, which is a big plus. Is south Florida we have droughts for a good part of the late spring/early summer period and have to do massive city-wide water conservation, so anything that increases water efficiency would be a big deal.

    Don't knock it until you've tried it.
