I got this on amazon a while back, but it was a waste of money. The black bulb part is this disgusting material that feels like it belongs in a factory or something. It's hard to describe, but it doesn't feel *clean*, like it might rub off on you.
As for messyness, the answer is yes, yes it is. The way the bulb is made, you can't really squeeze it empty all the way, and if you let go after squeezing it it will suck the water back into it (if you can believe that). The end result is that when you pull it out water goes everywhere.
The ribbed nozzle was even worse -- water sprays everywhere as soon as you try to squeeze it to begin with. On top of that, the plastic is made from a cheap mold so there's a seam line running down the sides of the nozzle and it's prominent enough to be borderline painful when you insert it.
So far my best luck has been with buying the cheap disposable enema things you can find at most drug store or supermarkets. Pour out the stuff that comes in it, rinse it, then refill it with water. Those have a special valve thing in the nozzle that prevents all the problems described above, and come pre-lubricated!
