I'm really glad someone brought this up because I think it's something everyone is self-conscious about yet doesn't talk about. Here at least people have no reason to be shy

I'm not a very experienced bottom, but I use an enema bulb that i bought from a sex shop but can also be bought online easily, they work just like a Fleet enema but can be better cleaned and re-used. It probably shoots more water up there than I need, and I usually do it until I get two clear streams.

I think I overdo it compared to some guys. I'm always perplexed when a friend of mine comes to visit, he stays in my place and I can never figure out if and when he douches, but at night he's always ready to get fucked and clean as a whistle

You just do it a few times until nothing else is coming out. If you shoot too much water up there, it will get "lost" and then come back out at an inopportune time.

-How much time in advance should you douche before you anticipate sex?

-How exactly does an enema work (I've never had one before)?

-How much water should you get inside of you and how long do you hold it before you let it all out? And how many times do you have to do it before everything's out?

-Should you not eat anything after douching until sex is over?

-How much time in advance should you douche before you anticipate sex?

At least a few minutes, no more than 2-3 hours. Otherwise, repeat.

-How much water should you get inside of you and how long do you hold it before you let it all out? And how many times do you have to do it before everything's out?

Just a little water (a bulb or so) and just hold it for a few seconds. If you hold it long, it will get absorbed and not go right back out, leaving you uncertain if it will come out later. Just wash it out a couple times until nothing brown is coming back out, and you don't feel like there is more water or "uncertainty" up there. Once it all feels good, you're good.

the tip end on those ear aspirators aren't always completely smooth, at least not on the blue rubber ones. so you need to watch out when you're inserting them especially if you're tight. i really didn't know that fleet were reusable, so i guess in a crunch you can use them. but i would have to agree with the poster who recommended the ones from fort troff. they're good. and don't even think about using a summer's eve douche. don't ask.

by Anonymousreply 6302/16/2013

I use plain water. I had a reusable bulb type and just filled it with warm water. My method was to have about three applications, one at a time, until the water ran clear. Then, I'd hop in the shower and finish off with a hose attachment. It was overkill, I know. I would never use a packaged Fleet enema right out of the box, the saline content burns a little but also causes (for me) a cramping urgency. I've only used one once, prior to a surgical procedure.

Word of caution, chiming in with some other posters. Sometimes all the water doesn't come out if you use too much water for too long. I found myself leaking clear water a few times after heavy penetration, which isn't too bad or embarrassing but did soak through the sheet to the mattress. One time I did an overkill enema as described in the other paragraph and waited for at least an hour before the trick showed up to my apartment. I was a little anxious, so my body responded I guess by generating some peristalsis, which I thought was just maybe a trace of leftover water inside. I didn't do another enema, and even this cute Arab cub was fucking me liquid crap started leaking out. He was angry "I thought you said you were clean!!!" and stomped to my bathroom to wash himself. He left in a huff and the sex was over. I felt humiliated and let down.

The OP asked so I figured I'd share my experiences, as gross as they may sound. It's the reality of the organ we're dealing with. Moral is dont overdo it, else, don't do it too far on advance.

All these enemas are going to screw up your rectum and intestines. Drying out your anus before penetration is a bad idea as it leaves you vulnerable to tears in the lining of your anus. This is one way to transmit HIV.

In reality, you should save the hot, soapy shower for after penetrative sex as it will rid you of the majority of bacteria associated with other STDs. (Though, of course, there's nothing wrong with a shower before sex. It doesn't have to be a Silkwood shower though.)

All this enema stuff - sounds like a fetish to me. Most of you should hook up with partners who enjoy administering such treatments. You'd probably get a lot more pleasure out of it. Embrace who you are. But I wouldn't confuse a penchant for three Fleet enemas before anal intercourse as having to do solely with anal sex. It's sexual in nature for sure but sounds more like you're having your main course before the appetisers, really.

If you enjoy anal sex it's probably a good idea to maintain a healthy diet. Also, in reference to one poster who claims the "douching" is primarily to clean out the rectum after the last shit you've taken...erm, see a doctor. Sounds like you have a terrible diet and need some bowel movement training. You shouldn't be leaving shit in your rectum after a bowel movement. That's not how the rectum works. Your rectum is actually cleaner than your mouth. Not the exterior of your anus but your rectum.

Psyllium husks. Coupled with a healthy diet and plenty of water throughout the day, this works for me. Just add a few tablespoons of husks to a half glass of water (maybe two, to start), follow with another full glass of water. I do this usually in the late afternoon, after 5 PM, usually before dinner. You can take it with food as well but I've never noticed a difference. Usually by morning, my entire bowel will empty. Sometimes it empties and then 15 or 20 minutes later it empties again. If not, try an additionally tablespoon later that day. I usually use 3 tablespoons a day.

The most important thing about rectal health is NEVER PUSH OR STRAIN. Also, do not spend a lot of time seating on the toilet. If you have to go, take a seat. If nothing is happening, get off of it. Never read on the toilet, at least not for long periods. You're just pre-disposing yourself to haemorrhoids later in life (though there are other causes including genetic pre-disposition).

I noticed recently you can buy a 1kg bag of organic psyllium husks at Whole Foods for an incredibly reasonable price. The small amounts available in health food stores are usually very overpriced.

A healthy diet - with vegetables and multi-grains as well - exercise, plenty of water, rest, etc., always lead to good health and well-being.

Also, you just have to be smart. If you're going to have recreational sex that day eat sparingly and save your appetite for after. If you're in an LTR, you and your partner will figure out when the best time of day to have sex is, based on your regular habits. Never lose your sense of humour and just be practical - not every day is a great day for anal sex. Or suggest taking a shower together or whatever. Be human not some fuck toy. If a sex partner is putting unreasonable pressure on you, dump him and find another.

There are weird guys out there who, for example, just want to fuck, no foreplay, no oral, no rimming, they're completely disgusted and obsessed with hygiene issues. Avoid them. You don't have to please them. There are nicer people out there who will treat you much better. Good luck.

Bacterial infections transferred by oro-anal sex

As we’ve indicated above, contact between the mouth and the anus will probably result in the transfer of ‘bottom germs’ – though these will not necessarily cause disease. Bowel organisms

There is evidence that the bowel organisms Salmonella, Shigella and Campylobacter can all be transmitted by oro-anal contact. These can all cause abdominal pain and diarrhoea. Infections with Salmonella and Shigella can occasionally be very serious. Hepatitis A

Hepatitis A is a common viral infection that can cause jaundice and abdominal pain. It is not usually life-threatening, although sufferers can feel very ill.

The virus is often found in faeces in high concentrations and will almost inevitably be present on the apparently clean anal skin of infected individuals. It can be transmitted by oro-anal contact.

Several epidemic outbreaks have been reported among gay men, but heterosexual couples practising oro-anal contact are just as likely to be at risk. Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a viral infection. It is common in hot countries and around the Mediterranean. It used to be rare in the UK, but rates are rising. It is particularly common among people who have had a previous sexually transmitted disease, and among drug users. It can cause a very serious, potentially fatal, liver disease and chronic liver damage. It is most commonly transmitted by inoculation of infected blood, by sharing needles for injection, needlestick injuries and the medical use of infected blood products. Virus particles are found in semen, stool and saliva, as well as blood. There is clear evidence that it can be transmitted through vaginal and anal intercourse, but it is unproven whether it can be transmitted through oral sex. Certainly, there is a theoretical risk of transmission. Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a viral infection transmitted in a similar way to hepatitis B and often affects drug users. Some people with hepatitis C infection were infected with blood products, such as transfusions, prior to adequate screening procedures in the 1980s. There is limited evidence that hepatitis C may be transmissible through receptive oro-genital contact. Worms

Threadworms, and probably other worms, can be transmitted by oro-anal contact or by fellatio after anal intercourse. What about herpes?

Herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection is the commonest cause of genital ulceration. There are two types of the virus. Type 1 affects mainly the lip – causing cold sores. Type 2 causes blisters on the genitals.

In the past, it was thought that genital herpes was caused almost exclusively by Type 2, but in recent years it has become clear that many herpes ulcers on the penis or vulva/vagina are actually caused by the Type 1 virus.

Genital herpes is characterised by recurrent bouts of vesicles (small blisters), either on the penis or vulva, or other parts of the female genital tract. These rapidly break down to form small, painful ulcers. The first episode is usually associated with an acute feverish illness, which may be quite severe. It frequently recurs, although recurrent bouts are usually associated with a milder illness.

HSV can also cause pharyngitis, an inflammation of the throat with ulcer formation. HSV is highly infectious and usually sexually transmitted. It is certainly transmitted by penetrative intercourse but there are several reports of transmission through oral sex. Virus particles are shed profusely from ulcers, either oral (including cold sores) or genital, and infection is far more likely when these are present. Transmission is less likely, but not impossible, in the absence of ulcers.

If you have a cold sore on your lip, do not give anyone oral sex – or even kiss them. What about HPV and the risk of cancer?

In late 2010, I was alarmed when an ENT surgeon showed me the larynx (voicebox) of a man who had had a lot of oral sex partners. The patient was hoarse, and he found it difficult to speak. The area round his vocal cords was virtually 'swamped' by a network of fine, white threads. These, it transpired, wer

I agree with r79 except for the Psyllium, it irritates the intestinal lining. My doctor gave me a magnesium powder linked below to take at night for sleep and good bowl movements. It works great without any crampy feelings. Its main function is for relaxation and calcium balancing but you can tell when you are taking the right amount by your bowl movements, once it gets runny cut back.

Also, Chia seeds soaked in water works great along with all the other great advice from r79.

Would also add a good probiotic in the 10s of billions and Glutamine for over all gut health.
