You should buy a bidet.

On the one hand, it’s nice to see other people champion the cause of bidets: Lex Friedman has taken it upon himself to spread the good word of the clean bottom. I love the setup:

Let’s start with a thought experiment. Suppose you’re calmly walking down the street, minding your own business as you do, when a crazed attacker smears his feces all over your forehead. For the purposes of this thought experiment, whether it’s the attacker’s own feces is irrelevant to our purposes. The point is, someone smeared shit on you.

Suddenly, a hero appears. He’s short on time and supplies. He’s carrying just two things: a roll of paper towels, and a powerful hose with an endless supply of water. The catch? You can only pick one of those two items to clean yourself up.

Which do you pick?

Exactly.
