Let’s say that even if you have no talents at all and you are hopeless at everything you do, at least there is comfort in knowing that you can at least wipe your rear in a proper way, right?
I mean, there is no great philosophy in the act of wiping it. Besides, it is not difficult and it’s yours, you are good at it and no one can take that from you. Or maybe they can?
Well, according to doctors, you have been wiping your rear wrong your whole life.
Several experts have said that using only toilet paper can sometimes lead to excessive wiping. The consequences are that this can cause anal fissures. For anyone who wonders what this means, these are little cuts. Not very ideal, huh?
“I find it rather baffling that millions of people are walking around with dirty anuses while thinking they are clean,” said George on why toilet paper doesn’t remove feces like it should.
He is the author of The Big Necessity: The Unmentionable World of Human Waste and Why It Matters.
“Toilet paper moves s#!t, but it doesn’t remove it.”-he added.
Experts suggested using baby wipes instead of a toilet paper. The reason for this is the fact that toilet paper does little to actually cleanse the crack.
In other countries, like Japan for example, people install bidets and similar cleansing tools, but in the UK and the US, we are pretty much still not familiar with this type of cleansing.

Celebrities like Will Smith and Will.I.Am are concerned with this matter. Will Smith has admitted he likes polishing his bum with a baby wipe. He described this method as ‘special and incredible’.
“I’m the type of person that it’s important for me to share. When I experience something that’s special and incredible, I like to share it with people. Anyone who’s using dry toilet paper, you’re really not doing yourself the true service,” he told BBC’s Radio 1.
Will. I.Am just added this statement concerning this topic:
“Here’s proof on why people should have baby wipes. Get some chocolate, wipe it on a wooden floor, and then try to get it up with some dry towels. You’re going to get chocolate in the cracks,” the vocalist said in an interview.
“That’s why you gotta get them baby wipes.”
It is actually positive that famous people like these two addressed his problem. They have all the rights to be concerned, especially because if not done properly, it can cause a health risk.
