How to Use a Bidet Seat as a Woman
The bidet toilet seat is the most popular type of bidet in the market, as it replaces an existing toilet seat.
Using a bidet toilet seat can differ because there are different types of bidet seats with different functionalities. It can be fully automated with high-tech structures, or it can come with basic functions.
To make use of this type of bidet as a lady:
- First, you can start by using tissue paper to remove the first layer of feces. However, this is not compulsory or needed, especially if you have a high-pressure bidet seat. However, if you only pee and don’t poop, there is no need to wipe your lady area with tissue first. The bidet water can wash you thoroughly.
- After the above, then turn on the frontal wash in the bidet seat. This can be found in either the left or right side panel on the bidet seat or in the remote control; if your bidet has one. The frontal wash will automatically target the front part of your lady area. So, you don’t need to adjust your seating.
- After using the frontal wash, then proceed to the rear wash. Again, this can be found on the side panel of your bidet or the remote. No need to adjust your seating. If you want, you can use plain, unscented white soap to give it an extra touch. But this is not compulsory.
- When you are done washing your lady’s area or your bum with either the frontal or rear wash, proceed to air dry it.
Some bidet seats come with an automatic inbuilt air-dryer, while some don’t. If your bidet seat doesn’t have an air-dryer, you can use a bidet towel.
How to Use a Bidet Hose as a Female
Using a bidet hose as a lady is likewise simple. For some newbies, it may be quite confusing, but it’s not. Again, the key factor is to position and aim properly.
Our article here covers everything you need to know about using the bidet sprayer, whether as a male or female.
However, here are the key factors for females:
- Since the bidet hose or sprayer is manually operated, you can still use it without causing a mess. You don’t need to stand up and flush your toilet before making use of the bidet hose. Doing this can expose your private area to a lot of bacteria.
- You can either choose to wipe with tissue paper first or not, depending on if you pooped or peed.
- So after making use of your toilet while still sitting back like you would if you are making use of the toilet. Reach for the bidet hose or sprayer from its stand, which is usually beside the toilet or tank.
- To wash your front lady area, put the bidet hose between your thighs and aim for it. You can control the water pressure from the lever pull on the bidet hose head.
- To wash the bum, put the bidet hose behind your rear, target, and wash.
- You can choose to use plain white soap if you prefer.
- Since the bidet hose does not come with an air dryer, you will have to use a bidet towel to dry up.
How to Use a Standalone Bidet as a Woman
The standalone is the traditional type of bidet, and it is usually found beside a toilet. However, it’s not always popular in the modern toilet because modern bidets like the bidet seats and bidet combos are introduced.
To use a standalone bidet as a woman:
- When you are done using your toilet for pooping, clean your butt with tissue paper to remove feces first. Then move to the standalone bidet beside the toilet.
- Unlike other types of bidets, the way a woman sits on a standalone bidet is always different. So, instead of only sitting on it like you would when pooping or peeing, you are required to straddle it ( facing the water jet) when washing your frontal lady part and backing the water jet when washing your bum.
- If you are lucky enough to find one, some standalone bidet comes with a warm and cold water option. You can choose from this.
- If you want, you can go in with your hand and soap for extra touch or cleanliness.
- Your last step is to stand up and dry yourself with a bidet towel because standalone bidets do not come with an air dryer.

How to Use a Portable or Traveler Bidet as a Woman
The portable or traveler can always come in handy for female travelers or ladies who are always on the move. Using it can be very easy, just like you would when using a bidet hose.
- Start by filling the bottle with either cold or warm water.
- After you have used the toilet, clean your bum with tissue paper to remove excess feces.
- Still sitting in that position, target your front area by putting the bidet between your thighs and squeeze the bottle. The water will rush out from the nozzle to your lady area.
- For your bum area, put the bottle behind you and target your bum. Then squeeze the bottle so that water can rush out.

How a Woman Can Use a Bidet Attachment
Using the bidet attachment is not complicated since the bidet is mostly attached to the bidet seat. The good thing about it is that it always comes with simple settings.
Thus, to make use of it;
