I'm getting this from "Austin Powers" where the hero mentions "whore's
bath" as a quick wash of the sexual essentials. I see it listed in
Urban Dictionary, but that doesn't really mean much. Anyone heard of
this outside the context of the movie, maybe even prior to the 1997

By any chance, was "whore's bath" invented due to the unfamiliarity of English-speakers, or at least Americans, with the word "bidet"?
