We like big butts and we cannot lie! Honestly, we like small butts, too. Here at Oola, we love butts of all shapes and sizes, but we do have some conditions. When it comes to butts, we like them to be squeaky clean. If that can happen in an eco-friendly way, even better. That's why we really love TUSHY.

TUSHY Loves to Talk Crap

The team at TUSHY are "toilet crusaders" who are "fighting for clean bums and reduced global wastefulness." They work where "talking crap actually counts," and their goal is to turn people into "born-again bidet lovers."

Entrepreneur Miki Agrawal–author of Do Cool Sh*t: Quit Your Day Job, Start Your Own Business, and Live Happily Ever After–founded TUSHY in 2015. She wanted to upgrade the American bathroom experience with a modern, best-in-class, affordable bidet attachment.

What Is A Bidet?

Bidets are quite popular in Europe, the Islamic world, parts of South America, and sub-Saharan Africa. For some reason they just aren't as common in America. But they should be! You don't have to be euro-PEE-an to enjoy the benefits of a bidet. Sorry, our eight-year-old selves couldn't help but make that joke.

"Bidet" is actually a French word that means "little horse" because of the straddling position that people adopted when using a traditional one. We admit, that sounds a little weird, but stick with us because bidets are super cool.

A bidet is a bowl or receptacle that's designed for people to sit on to wash their bum, genitalia, and perineum. It gets all of your private areas so fresh and so clean without the use of toilet paper or wet wipes. The bidet's purpose is to promote personal hygiene and is designed to be used after going poop, as well as before and after sexual intercourse.

A TUSHY Keeps You Fresh Everywhere Down There

A TUSHY bidet is just as much of a vag spa as it is a butt spa. When you're on your period, TUSHY is perfect for staying fresh.

If you’re thinking, “Hmm, so this bidet is spraying water up onto my butt, so wouldn’t that poop water get in my vagina?” Good question. The answer is that the magical splash from a TUSHY bidet is an effective way to remove fecal matter. It might even prevent UTIs.

TUSHY's super smart doctor friend John Cluley, M.D. says that, “any trivial amount of bacteria the urethra is exposed to as a result of using a bidet is far outweighed by the improved hygiene you have by using the bidet in the first place."

Translation: washing with water is the only way to "shoo that poo."

A TUSHY Attaches to Your Existing Toilet

Bidets are often separate bowls from a toilet. But a modern bidet attachment–like a TUSHY bidet–can be placed on an existing toilet. And a TUSHY bidet is super easy to attach in just a matter of minutes.

A bidet has a nozzle that squirts a jet of water at your butt and a "special purpose" to help you get clean. No, it's not toilet water. A TUSHY bidet gets its water straight from the tap. TBH, you could totally drink the water that the TUSHY bidet shoots out, but that would be a little odd. Still, we don't judge!

You're probably wondering if the TUSHY bidet sprays hot or cold water. The answer is–that's totally up to you. TUSHY offers both the TUSHY Classic and the TUSHY Spa. The TUSHY classic is the most popular and versatile bum wash. It's super easy to install and will connect to your water supply to send a stream of cool or room temperature water to where it's needed most.

The TUSHY Spa works just like the TUSHY Classic. But it does have an additional hose that runs to your sink's hot water connection so it can access warm water. When you use a TUSHY Spa, you have a temperature control dial on the TUSHY console that will allow you to change the water temperature before your bum is sprayed.

Why TUSHY?

We're gonna get real for a minute. When you use toilet paper after pooping, it's simply not an effective cleaning method. What's more, using toilet paper (and wet wipes) can contribute to health issues like UTI's, hemorrhoids, yeast infections, anal fissures, and anal itching.

We all want to stay clean down there. But, when you poop and then wipe, wipe, wipe, and wipe some more with toilet paper, that frequent, repetitive motion can cause your skin to break down and thin. That can lead to tearing and skin build-up. Yikes!

Go TUSHY = Save Water

On the environmental side of the equation, 15 million trees die every year just to make toilet paper. On average, an American uses 57 sheets of TP every single day. Most people use about one and a half rolls every week. And it takes 37 gallons of water to make a single roll.

In a week without using a TUSHY bidet, you'll use about 55.5 gallons of water just to go to the bathroom and wipe your butt.

But if you use a TUSHY bidet, your bum will only need about 1.3 gallons of water each week to stay super clean. This is because a TUSHY bidet uses just an eighth of a gallon of water each time it's used. What's even better is that no trees are harmed to make this eco-friendly bum cleaner.

TUSHY doesn’t use any electricity, either, so it’s even more environmentally friendly and accessible for everyone.

Getting Dry is Also Eco-Friendly

We've told you about the hygienic and environmental benefits of using a bidet, but how do you get dry? Don't you just use toilet paper to dry off, defeating the purpose of a TUSHY bidet? The truth is, you can easily air dry after using a bidet. But, if you're too busy for that, you can pat dry with TUSHY's reusable ultra-comfy Bum Towels, super sustainable Bamboo TP, or Bamboo TUSHY Tissues.

Using TUSHY will dramatically reduce the amount of TP you need. You can turn endless, irritating wiping into just a few nice pats when you use a TUSHY bidet and eco-friendly drying products. TUSHY is literally the modern bidet company that can save your ass, save you money, save the planet, and save the world.

Added bonus: if there is ever a toilet paper shortage again, you won't even notice.
