Well guys, paper was not yet invented and papyrus and parchment too expensive to wipe your behind with... now evidently they had to do it with something, right?

I am sure that the stones worked fine because they used them through the Greek period through the Roman Empire They did have an awful lot of rocks laying around over there on those lands

Leaves are much softer! Why not forest vegetation? That wouldn't wipe you clean, it would scrape you clean :P

Gee, were they all stupid?
Whats wrong with using pieces of cloth?
They could even be used several times, like baby nappies, if washed.

That is one of the things I dislike about having to go to the States sometimes; they force you to use toilet paper.  A simple sprayer or of course one of the modern toilets that does it all from inside the bowl, or even a bidet, is much cleaner, doesn't require the destruction of trees, is much easier on the sewerage system and is more comfortable (especially for those with handicaps and the obese).

I provide toilet paper in my house for those who feel they need to dry themselves after spraying, but I think this unnecessary.

Hello, where it's the sprayer located if not in the toilet bowl?  Does it get sanitized after each use?  I can't imagine putting my panties back on  with a wet butt after spraying.  Sounds uncomfortable and not very sanitary.  

I'm not judging, just wondering because I'm American although no one forces me to use toilet paper, I have a choice and I choose to use it... ;)

  Sometimes in the seat, sometimes on the side where you spray manually.

Obviously you don't understand; it's much more sanitary than putting things up your butt -- the only thing that touches you is fresh water.  Some of the more high-class units come with air driers, but I always saw that as wasting power.  It only takes a second or so and you are dry enough.

It is especially good for the obese and people with handicaps that prevent their reaching back there.  It also saves money and effort keeping the paper available, and is much less a strain on the sewage system.

in the article it says that the romans had the most sophisticated toilets in the ancient world, with designs that were lost for hundreds of years after.
when skara brae was excavated in the 1920's, they found a toilet in every home, that was kept clean by a constant flow of running seawater that formed an extremely effective sewage disposal system. skara brae is over five thousand years old, and a MUCH better system than the roman one. after all, crapping through a hole into a pit isn't all that 'sophisticated'.
proof again the scots invented just about everything worth inventing.....
