Douching.. venturing into unknown territory

LavenderSkies LavenderSkies
My partner and I are looking to get into anal sex without condoms. That said, I want to aim for being as clean as I can be. So, I've decided to purchase a douching system. With quite a few on Eden, does it really matter which one to buy? Are there safety precautions I need to take when douching? I need a 101 class!

Okay, here is MY scoop, and I know many here will differ. I have done anal for four decades now, with prior boyfriends and then my hubby for over 35 years. We do it VERY regularly (3-4 times a week, on average), and have NEVER, EVER used a condom and have NEVER EVER used a douch or enema of any kind. Period.

If you have had a recent bowel movement and don't have to "go" then your rectum and the lower part of your large intestine is probably pretty empty. A healthy rectum and anus are pretty well free of solid material.

In all that time and all that anal play, we have NEVER had him come out with any "visible" soil-age. NOT ONCE, not ever. We DO shower and use a soapy finger in the rear before sex, often, as we enjoy licking and tonguing back there (rimming). It is very sensual and erotic. I also finger his prostate most times when doing oral and again, NEVER an issue with "soiling".

Having said all that, I CAN tell you we have friends who are into anal who HAVE used enema's to be clean, and 1. It stirs up more then it cleans up, and they HAVE had "the runs" or issues of unexpected "squirts" of brown water during anal. Sorry...not for us. 2. THEY have had some issues, after years of this, with their colon's. WE have not. There is a protective mucus lining in the rectum and intestine and I am sure you disrupt the heck out of this with a douche.

I know there are people here that do SHALLOW rectal squirts of saline or just warm water, with a bulb and nozzle, or with a refilled enema bottle (like FLEETS, but without the Fleets chemicals), and they say they feel cleaner that way. However, again, I would tread carefully there.

If you are worried about GERMS, I assure you, a bit of saline or warm water is NOT, NOT, NOT going to change the germs in your colon. If you are worried about soiling him, well, if you are healthy and have no need to have a bowel movement, then your rectum is pretty darn empty!

That is MY take. Be careful and ENJOY.

I just use a Fleet enema from the local drug store. Just pour out the contents and add some warm water, maybe a pinch of salt (heard that somewhere, I don't bother).

As far as the systems, the ones that connect to the faucet/shower may require some additional parts to make them fit. Not a big deal in most cases, the local hardware store will have the parts.

The first thing is to make sure the temperature of the water is right, to cold and it may cause some cramping. To hot and well you can guess the consequences of that.

You only need to flush out the rectum, so not much water is needed. Thus the Fleet enema bottles or some of the douche bottles that EF offers. You may need to fill it and flush a few times, just continue until it comes out clear. If using something that attaches to the faucet or shower head, it is easy to get more of an enema. Not that this is a bad thing it's just that during an enema the water also fills the colon (where 'stuff' is stored) and possibly the lower intestine. While this may clean better it also means a longer time spent waiting for everything to come out. Think 15-30 minutes versus 3-5 minutes. Really, a quick douche will do just fine.

One more thought about systems that hook up to a faucet/shower, the pressure coming out from the plumbing can be to high. It may cause problems and or damage to the rectum, colon or lower intestines. Start off at a low setting and increase if needed.

Either way you go, wait about an hour or so before you do anything. Not only will this insure that everything has come out but it will give the rectum a chance to replace the natural mucous that helps protect the delicate tissues.

I honestly wouldn't bother. Bignuf pretty much said everything I could possibly say. Anal douching is mostly something that just makes you FEEL better about it. I would venture to say that the outcome, whether you do it or not, will still be the same.
