I wipe my bum with my hand

I went to live in India for a couple of months, and whilst over there I decided to take up some of the local customs.

They showed me how to wipe with my hand (no toilet paper), and when I came back home my bum just felt really dirty when I used loo paper. I was able to scoop out a lot more shit with my hands.

Does anyone else do this? I think it's a healthier, cleaner option tbh. Esspecially if there's a river/ beach near by where you can rinse you hand off.

Is It Normal?
Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • That sounds disgusting. To be fair, India has pretty repulsive hygiene standards.

    • How is this repulsive? We must move away from bigotry and accept all different cultures!

      • Because countries like India still have the plague, typhoid, cholera and other disease we dont. Because weve evolved past touching shit with our bare hands. Oh and India still mostly doesnt have toilets and still treats widows like crap. So maybe they arent the best cultures to emulate. WE dont care if you are offended that i hate disease

        • Maybe that's just their culture? We must accept that instead of being prejudice against different peoples.

          • Because i dont have to like everyone elses culture. Or everything in my own culture for the matter. Not everything is ok.

      • You are touching your own feces. This is how diseases spread. Accepting unhygienic practices is not “progressive”.

  • This is surely a troll trying to fool us and spread stereotypes about India isn't it? Usually I'm the last to cop on to trolling though.

    to me it's gross. but it's not my place to judge. you just keep being you.

  • Nearly every toilet here in Thailand has "bum gun" or a water cistern to wash after having a shit. In fact most of the East has the same or similar system. They think wiping your backside with just paper is dirty!

        • Confusing. So it's unclean to use tp but it's fine to spray you butt with water then use toilet paper?

          • Lol idk. Im only going by the OPs rules.
            I think one should use tp, then spritz bottle, then tp again. Then wash hands.
            The only way hands is ok is with a disposable glove

  • Why did you need someone to show you how to wipe your ass with your hand? Isn't it very self explanatory?

  • Congrats, youve gone centuries backward in time and reverted to the middle agges. Ick.
    Actually i suspect youre a clever troll. But if not, you can use a spritz bottle of water to clean your ass.

  • Pretty much. I used my hand before, at the end of the day I'd rather just wash my hands over my clothes that smell like poo. Easy decision. I mean it works but you gotta wet your hand first and really it's a hassle
