Correct usage of the bum gun?

Post by xandreu » Fri Oct 05, 2018 9:29 pm

When I first encountered these, many years ago on my first visit to Asia, I simply did my business, sprayed around the affected area for 10 or so seconds, spent three or four seconds wondering how clean it really was down there, shrugged my shoulders, pulled my trousers up and went on my way.

That's largely what I continue to do now, apart from the wondering part.

However, I now have Khmer friends who come and visit me, sometimes stay, and often use my toilet. I'm aware that they can sometimes occupy my toilet for 5-10 minutes at a time, accompanied continuously, and almost exclusively by the sound of the bum gun jetting it's ejaculation in and around the toilet bowl.

What are they doing that I don't?

"What are they doing that I don't?"

Wiping their shoe prints off the toilet seat.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

Ok so after reading this I realize the above replies are accurate. I have seen my gf doing that for #2 only
Hell, she's sitting next to me so I just asked her why she does this. She could only explain in Khmai in words I did not understand.

So, why do they squat like that to shit?

They come from the jungle general-chatter/why-cambodian-ladies-sq ... 19254.html

Cambodians use the bum gun nonstop for 5-10 minutes because they know you’re a creepy dude who listens to their farts and that makes them uncomfortable.

After using a bum-gun for a few years in Asia it makes you wonder how you managed to live all those years without one. For thousands of years people have used water for cleaning , then people called themselves '' educated '' and decided to use paper, that was invented to write on , to clean their ass.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I wish they'd introduce them in Ireland!. After a night or two on the Guinness I need a good supply of toilet paper! :|

Nothing worse than a low-pressure bum gun. Almost useless. Then there's the opposite. The unit in my Viet apartment could put out a second-floor fire.
