What really is the difference?
I have had a medical enema and that went on forever. It left me feeling sick and wrung out. Not a place I want to be if I'm getting ready for play.
Any information would be helpful.
Stormy's answer was "spot on", technically. The big question, I think you are asking, is if you need to clean out in some way prior to anal play. There are a lot of discussions about this here at EF. Some people seem to use the little bottles that come with "Fleets" and just do warm water. Others clean out with mild soap. Personally, and I know others feel this way too here, is that if you keep the outside clean and don't have to have a bowel movement, then you are just fine without doing any "flushing" (which can indeed upset the gut and the normal tissues found there). We enjoy anal play all the time and have almost never used any "internal" cleaning methods (and have never had any "accidents or soiling" I must add.
Good luck, have fun, be safe.
