Did you hear about bidets on Saturday Night Live once, but aren't entirely sure what they are? You're not alone. 

Bidets are not a recent phenomenon in the world, but the US has been reluctant to adopt them. A lot of people think they're gross. Others aren't entirely sure what's the point of using a bidet. This class aims to change your mind. 

In this class, we will walk through time to learn about the origins of bidets and what other things people use to clean up in the bathroom. We then discuss the benefits - and hangups - of using bidets in the modern urban world. We'll talk about why bidets haven't quite become en vogue in the Americas. We'll talk politely about how to actually use a bidet. And...we'll talk about how to get your landlord okay with you installing a bidet.
