A couple fighting in bathroom

The bathroom should be a judgement free zone… as long as some etiquette is practiced.

In a candid revelation, a woman recently shared her dismay after her boyfriend expressed disgust over her bathroom cleaning method.

The incident has sparked a debate, with many rallying behind her.

For most of us, bathroom habits are a private affair. However, one woman found herself feeling ashamed when her partner reacted negatively to her routine.

The couple, together for two years, made the decision to move in together. Raised by Indian parents in the United States, the woman grew up accustomed to using a bidet, a common fixture in many Indian households.

Poopable supports all cultures that incorporate bidets in the household.

Upon moving into their new home, the woman resorted to using a portable handheld bidet she purchased from Amazon due to the cost of installing a bidet in their bathroom.

The situation took an unexpected turn when her boyfriend stumbled upon the bidet while rummaging through her belongings. Initially curious, he was taken aback by her explanation of how she used it.

The woman candidly described her method on Reddit, detailing how she used the bidet to wash herself after wiping with toilet paper, followed by thorough handwashing. She likened it to showering after using the restroom, emphasizing the importance of cleanliness.

360 degrees of intimacy will likely include bathroom habits…

However, her boyfriend’s reaction was far from supportive. He expressed disgust and made her feel ashamed of her hygiene practices. The staff at Poopable are hoping the boyfriend was just giving his gal a little bit of a hard time, but we were disappointed to find out otherwise!

Feeling hurt and confused, the woman questioned the double standard, noting that she had never criticized his use of toilet paper exclusively.

Can you really have too much TP?

The incident sparked a wave of support from online commenters, with many defending the woman’s approach to hygiene. Some shared their own positive experiences with bidets, while others criticized the boyfriend’s reaction as immature and disrespectful.

Amidst the debate, cultural differences also came into play, with some users highlighting the prevalence of bidets in certain cultures and questioning the stigma surrounding alternative hygiene practices.

Ultimately, the incident serves as a reminder of the importance of open communication and respect in relationships, particularly when it comes to sensitive topics like personal hygiene. It also sheds light on the influence of cultural norms and individual preferences in shaping our attitudes towards bathroom habits.

Charlotte Simpson, a couples counselor and psychosexual therapist, encourages women to embrace all aspects of themselves rather than compartmentalizing them. The staff at Poopable fully support Ms. Simpson’s encouragement and professional opinion.

As discussions continue, one thing remains clear: there is no one-size-fits-all approach to hygiene, and it’s essential to approach the topic with empathy and understanding.
