No, bidets don't spray poop everywhere when you use them. Bidets use a concentrated stream of water specifically directed to cleanse your backside and genitals. The waste does not get sprayed all over. Think of it as a safe, spotless wash for your butt.
Apart from that, do you wipe before using a bidet?

Even if, how do you wipe yourself after using a bidet?
Wiping after using a bidet is simple. Gently wipe or blot the wet areas to soak up the excess water. Remember that the area is already clean; one gentle wipe or dab should do the trick. We recommend using toilet paper, as most people already have it in their bathrooms, or a towel.
How long does it take a bidet to clean?
This should correct the problem, but most people will not have to worry about this, and will experience a full clean in about 30 seconds. A few people will get a full clean in less time than that.
Not all bidets have a dryer feature. A bidet attachment is a simple, budget-friendly bidet that provides the benefits of washing without as many features as a more complex bidet toilet seat.

Straddle the bidet, sitting on the rim and align the anus with the column of spray water. Note that most bidets don't have seats, but are still meant to be sat upon; you just sit directly on the rim. Gradually open the spray valve until adequate pressure is achieved to flush the remaining feces from the anus.
The best bidet with a dryer is the Toto s550e. It's a high-end bidet featuring a self-sterilizing spray wand, an air deodorizer, and a dryer. The dryer blows air at a rate of 10.24 ft3/min and heats up to a maximum of 140 degrees.
While the bidet offers some benefits, there are several drawbacks and dangerous side effects associated with its prolonged use. The main risks of bidet use include disruption of natural flora and increased risk of infection, perianal region damage, and physical injuries from falls or burns.
An electric bidet may work by electricity or not. ... More often, an “electric” bidet uses its juice to power a built-in heater that warms the water before it touches your skin, raise or lower the seat, turn on/off a timer, respond to a remote control unit, and other convenience features that need a power source.
Bidets have the potential to transmit contagious diseases. This is of greater concern in public restrooms than in homes. Users should know in advance the direction of the water arc and position themselves accordingly. The spray can be powerful enough to strike a person in the face.
Manufacturers sometimes claim that bidets can help reduce urinary tract infections. Dr. Swartzberg says that there's just no data that he knows of to support that, and in fact, it's possible that the warm water might irritate the urethra if squirted directly at it.
Modern electronic bidet seats are equipped with built-in water heaters. The ability for the bidet seat to heat the water is a major benefit since most people prefer warm water to wash themselves. ... All you need is the existing cold water supply behind your toilet, making a separate hot water line unnecessary.
In general, warmer water can create a cleaner feeling, but that does not mean that it is actually producing cleaner skin. There is very little difference in the actual results between cold water and warm water attachable bidet toilet seats.
