A bidet seat is a toilet seat with bidet functionality that sits atop your existing toilet bowl and replaces your current toilet seat. A bidet seat's main function is to wash your rear with a comfortable stream of water in lieu of toilet paper.

At the press of a button, a nozzle will extend out and spray a jet of water at your rear. The water spray will cleanse your intimate areas much more effectively than toilet paper. When finished, the nozzle clean itself and retracts.
