As valid as this question is, it doesn’t make it any less difficult to ask... People around the world usually use water rather than toilet paper to wipe themselves after going to the bathroom. By using a bidet or any other machine with reasonable pressure, you can make sure to spray the water in order for it to clean yourself. After that, you just use regular toilet paper to dry.

But what happens when they are in a public restroom with no access to a bidet? Well, they use a tactile response, like when they are wiping anything else, including a smudge on his face or a spill.

They pay extreme attention to how the TP slides -or not- across their backside. If it’s a rougher slide then it needs to be cleaner. Next time you go to the bathroom, try paying attention to how things feel back there and you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to predict when you’re completely clean without looking.
