Bathroom Habits: Fold or Crunch?

What better place than the internet to discuss those things which are rarely discussed in real life? So...

This is inspired by a poll that I saw on another website, and I was very surprised at the results. With 2,328 respondents, the winning answer was not only not what I expected, but it won by a very wide margin too! I was left wondering: am I weird, or is this website weird? That's where you come in: I'm curious if the results here will be similar or different. I'm not answering yet because I don't want to give anything away.

Fold, fold for wiping or if I blow your nose. Especially if you bought the cheap TP.

fold crunching seems to haphazard.

Since I've been using Charmin Extra Strong, I can use half my previous number of sheets, plus it's so soft.

Crunching ends up with more surface area, therefore I get cleaner per wipe.

Wow, how strange. I never knew folding was so popular! The results here are closer than the other site I saw the poll, but considering there are only 22 responses here they're basically about the same.

I definitely crunch. When it comes to being clean, I don't really care that I'm wasting toilet paper. I want a thick bunch of material between my hand and my ass. Folding just seems way less sanitary to me. I've tried folding... it just seems so dainty.

dlish: What I wouldn't give to have a bidet. The whole concept of toilet paper kind of disgusts me, but that's the culture I've been born into. The moment I'm in a position to purchase a Toto Washlet I'll be getting one. It'll be the best $1000 I'll ever spend on home improvement.

i wonder if it comes with a blow dryer. It'd make the whole toilet process pretty much 'hands free'.

yay for technology eh?

Not that folding doesn't work for me, but maybe there are some benefits to crunching that I wouldn't even think of until trying.

Washlet S400...I so want one.
That would just completely freak out just about everyone I know.
I don't think seeing peoples expression coming out of the bathroom ("What the fuck is that?!") would ever get old.
Not sure which would do it more...the warm water or the hot air...

Then of course there is the number of people I give brochures to vs the number that will never come back cause they might have to use the bathroom.

Crunch. The washlet sounds appealing, but what if it's a really sticky poo? The kind you've got to use multiple bunches of paper on? Somehow the "gentle aerated water stream" doesn't sound like it's going to get the job done.

What the hell is crunching? Can someone explain this??

I don't get how you can do anything BUT fold. Wouldn't it unravel while wiping and get turd all over your hands if it wasn't folded???

Agreed. I think there's a place for toilet paper, much like you use a wash cloth while in the shower. The issue is that dry paper alone does not create cleanliness.

lucifer, those 'gentle streams' can be adjusted to become 'ruthless jets'.

the temperature can be adjusted too, depending on the time of year and seasonal weather, again at the discretion of the user.

ive tried it and it works well. the only issue i have is the drying up. you still need toilet paper, which is why was asking for a blow dryer on those new bidets

Depends on what I'm doing and what kind of paper is available.
I fold the thicker, stronger stuff and scrunch up the cheap or linty stuff.

Neither. I roll it off the roll and onto my hand, so I reckon you could say I roll. This is closer to folding than to crunching though, so I voted fold.
