Thank you both for your help, I feel a little more prepared for the experience now. I just have to get the ball syringe that Nina suggested first.
You don't necessarily need to douche anally unless you're going to be doing a lot of thrusting. In my experience as long as you've had a good bowel movement prior things are fine. Some people are really freaked out by shit but honestly, it's a part of the whole thing and sometimes (like Nina says) a little bit of it happens. My partner and I have never done any anal douching and have never had a serious problem.
Also before you jump to anal sex and invest in an anal douche, I would SERIOUSLY recommend getting comfortable with something smaller first. In other words; invest in a small dildo. I skipped ahead to anal with my partner and have been dealing with an incredibly painful fissure for about 6 months now as a result. If I had it to do all over again I'd start out with this small toy
and work up from there. It's worth it to invest a little bit in a dildo rather than injure yourself.
