good anal douche equipment - why doesn't Eden carry it?

ScottA ScottA
Recently, an anal douche/enema bulb I was testing for Eden started to leak, and after noting that in the follow-up I took a look at the selection offered and started wondering something.

Generally speaking, Edenfantasys carries excellent quality toys. There are some inexpensive options that Eden carries, but for the most part you don't have to look very hard at all to find some really nice stuff.

That seems to end in the "Douche and Enema" section. I know it's not the most romantic section, but all of the offerings are three-star and below. Most of them are either somewhat exotic (large, shaped nozzles or shower-setups) or look rather flimsy even in the pictures.

Why doesn't Eden get some good equipment? It doesn't have to be the large, ominous "fetish" equipment, just some good quality basic equipment. AveryDragon did a review of the StreemMaster, and that looks great for a shower-mounted system, add a good quality basic bulb and bag (and maybe a Higginson syringe) that will last, and it will look a lot more respectable. I know that most of this you can get in drugstores, but there you have the embarrassment factor, and I know you can get enema equipment elsewhere online, but then you don't have the Eden reviews.

However, I don't have much experience with wholesalers and markets and product laws, so I'm not sure what the reason why Eden does what they do is, but I'd be interested in finding out.

yep, agreed 100%, get the steemmaster for sure! EF should also sell the shur-shot, which is a version of the colt anal douche, but with a nice stainless steel nozzle instead of that horrifying jelly monstrosity...

The Shur-Shot/Shower Shot types worry me a bit - it's just too easy to have the water get too hot, since showers are generally built to carry larger volumes of water (and older houses don't even have compensating temperature valves).

I'd just like to see some good, basic equipment.

With the shur-shot, I adjust the flow to a minimum from the source, and then also minimize it on the restrictor. Changes in water pressure have an approximate 30 second delay in affecting the stream intensity. Same with temperature. As the hose is metal, you can feel warmer water approaching before it hits and leaves the nozzle. I understand your concern, conceptually, and think its valid - but I don't think its perhaps as serious as you might think. I've used mine in three different residences with plumbing of varying ages and quality...

Anyways, Eden sells the colt version, which is the same but comes with a nasty jelly dong. And they also sell a really unfortunate cali exotics kit that is similar. The shur-shot seems like a no brainer as an addition to the catalogue.

Hey ScottA, what exactly IS good, basic equipment? the hot water bags and tubing kind of idea? Have you run into any bulbs and nozzles that can be sterilized and etc? All I ever see on sites is in line shower adapters and plastic/rubber bulbs. Sounds like you might know of some cool products available out there...?

"Good, basic equipment" depends on your preferences, but I'd definitely put the hot-water bag & tubing idea in there. With a good, rounded nozzle it's hard to do damage to yourself, and the bag prevents problems with high pressure and fluctuating temperatures. Since it's a closed system you don't have to worry about water getting everywhere if it falls off, either.

Other "good, basic" type of things would be bulbs that are easy to squeeze and have a smooth, possibly flexible nozzle (I like that idea from the CalExotics "Cleaner" line). I also think that the Higginson syringe is a neat idea - it's a bulb pump in the middle of a tube, so one end goes in a container of water and the other end goes in your anus. You don't need to remove the nozzle to refill, and it's easy to get a feel for how much water you're putting in.

Rubber has problems, definitely - both from allergies and from cleanliness. The StreemMaster is made of silicone - so it can be cleaned and sterilized. I don't know if other devices are available in silicone yet - I don't have very much "practical knowledge" of the enema equipment market. I found some silicone tubing at the hardware store and "hand made" my setup.

So the short answer to the above question: good, basic equipment is equipment that's hard to hurt yourself with, easy to use and clean, and unlikely to make a big mess.

And also of sufficient quality to last for a number of years.

I like this thread a lot, though I've already got the Streem Master, I think it would be a great addition to EF if they have the ability to get it.

If you all have suggestions post them in the EdenFantasys.com should carry... thread! The Product Manager looks at this daily and has ordered products based on your suggestions.

I wonder how the new study on shower heads harboring bacteria affects the Streem Master?

Probably similarly to the showering recommendations: avoid if you're immunocompromised, let the shower run a bit before use otherwise.

I guess my problem is that I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of available enema equipment - especially questions about quality. Just browsing around a bit I saw a few things that might fit the bill:

Something like link, link, link, or perhaps a generic hot-water bottle type that's of good quality.

Of the shower-mounted types I think that the StreemMaster is the best from a safety standpoint, and would probably be a good addition to Eden.

Anyone else have ones that they like/think are nice/have tried? I got most of mine from a simple web search, so I wouldn't put too much weight to them.

All the silicone stuff I saw was quite expensive or large (most were 4 quarts).

I would LOVE to see more silicone on here. My boyfriend is allergic to latex and finding silicone supplies can be difficult and very, very expensive.

Silicone bags also seem so much nicer quality and the clear bags are good for seeing what is inside of the bag, how much liquid, or if you're using something other than water it has a nice visual effect.

Ciao. Ciao.
I'll raise my hand as another interested person...though I too don't know much about what would be a good product to carry!

XHale makes enema/douche nozzles out of glass...They aren't in our normal catalogue, but have always been on exhibit at tradeshows. A couple of online retailers that specialize in medical fetish carry the line.

I do notice that most higher end equipment is sold 'a la carte'. Tips, hoses and regulators, and bags are available and setups are typically built to suit one's personal preferences. It's really an art in itself...seen some crazy setups myself. It would be cool to see EF carry a nice silicone bag and some mix n' match accessories for those wanting something really nice.

On a side, does anyone know if there is a way to embed a picture here??

Adam - interesting. I admit that I haven't explored the "botique" enema stuff yet, but it would be neat to see pictures of your nozzles. I like the silicone bag idea - then you don't have to worry about allergies, funny chemicals, or mold, but all of what I've seen is in pretty expensive 4-quart and above bags. I guess that you don't need to take it all, so the size isn't to big of an issue.

I would think that a nice, quality, general-purpose set would be nice, too. I tend to get overloaded when faced with a whole bunch of choices that I don't know much about - especially on high-priced items.

I agree about appreciating a basic set. I am new to enemas and get confused with what goes with which and what tubes are right for what bags etc etc. I have been looking for a good silicone set for under 200 and that just doesn't seem to exist
