The Origins of the Bidet
Originating in France, the bidet was just a bowl that you squat over which then evolved into a separate porcelain toilet with taps, but you still had to squat or straddle it.
In the mid-1900s, UK toilet manufacturers improved the bidet as a porcelain bathroom device, but the UK did not adopt it and it was mostly exported to other countries. Bidet means small horse, and the bidet is so-called due to the straddling position one takes in order to use one.
