Who says the Japanese make all the fancy potties? Kohler has jumped into wash-yer-butt bidet derby with its C3 series toilet seats, using a special "hydra-cleansing wand" (pictured at right) to give you a hands-free alternative to toilet paper.

Click to viewThe C3-200 model ($1300, pictured on the toilet above left) has an in-line heater that warms up that water so your ass-cleaning experience will be more soothing than shocking. It even has a remote control to initiate the whole cleaning and drying process. There's also the model C3-100 ($750, pictured above right) that contains a small tank that heats up the cleansing water, and its controls are located on the side of the seat.

These swank toilet seats let you adjust the temperature and pressure of that cleaning spray, and there's also a cool blue light that helps with that nighttime urinary aiming problem. Also a nice touch is the way these heated seats quietly lower as if riding on a cushion of air.

Both models offer the ability to select front and rear wash, and you can even make the hydra-cleansing wand pulsate that water on those oh-so-sensitive body parts. That could get interesting rather quickly. The higher-end C3-200 also offers a deodorizing fan, and warm air drying with adjustable temperature and fan speed.

This bidet functionality in toilet seats has been popularized by Toto with its $5K+ NeoRest toilet and so-called "washlet" technology, and Toto also offers various luxo-sport toilet seats with those cool washlet features as well. But now you can get an American-made squirting seat. As with all thrones like this, there's slight problem, though: you'll have to wire an electrical outlet nearby for these babies, but that's the price of progress.

"the possibilit that I'd just end up with a stream of "muddy" water running up my chest and dripping from my nose."

"Have you ever sprayed a muddy car with a hose, the mud splashes everywhere! imagine this in your toilet."

... Yikes. How powerful do you think this is? I'm sure the Tim Allen souped up more power edition would rip you a new a-hole, but I get the idea this toilet is more like a cleaning sprinkle rather than a full on water blasting.
