How To Clean Before Anal Sex Using Anal Douche?
Some people feel a frisson of excitement when it comes to anal sex. Some don’t, probably because of the fear of pain. Anal sex doesn’t have to be painful, and it shouldn’t – if you are well-prepared.
For those who are mentally ready for anal penetration, cleaning your ass might be the first thing that comes to your mind next, if you want to avoid mishaps during anal play. Here’s a step-by-step guide of how to douche before anal, if you are new and excited to try anal sex for the very first time!
Difference between anal douche and enema
You use either an anal douche or enema to clean your rectum. A typical anal douche is the round rubber bulk that comes with a nozzle, and reusable. There’s also disposable anal douche, which carries lesser amount of water. An anal douche cleans should your rectum enough.
An enema comes with a long tube with a bigger bag. Enema cleans beyond your rectum, up to your colon and even lower intestine. The fluid is injected through the tube into your body from your anus with theory of gravity, as you would hang the bag full of fluid at a higher place when you use it.
There’s no right or wrong which one to use. However, the more practical and less intimidating choice would be an anal douche. Anal douching is easy if done right.
How to use an anal douche?
Simply fill the round rubber bulk with clean water, make sure that water temperature is not too cold or too hot, the temperature should be lukewarm. We recommend filling the bulk with a basin, so that you have better control over the temperature.
Squeeze the bulk to allow it to fill with water in the basin, lube up the nozzle and your anus well and you are ready for insertion. Slowly insert the nozzle and gently squeeze the bulk so that water enters your rectum, take it slow. There’s no need to use all of the water in one go, you can stop when you feel like stopping.
Let the water sit inside your rectum for some time until you feel the natural urge to expel the water out. Repeat the process until the water expelled runs clear.
Cleaning an anal douche after use
You should clean your anal douche with soap and hot water after each use. It has to be cleaned thoroughly. Rinse the nozzle and bulk with warm water with soap, and let it dry completely.
For deep cleaning, we recommend to disinfect your anal douche with 1:10 bleach solution (one part bleach to ten parts water). To make 1:10 bleach solution, add one volume of household bleach (e.g. 1 litre) to nine volumes of clean water (e.g. 9 litre). Let the anal douche sit in the solution for a few minutes and rinse it thoroughly afterwards with water.
You can also boil your anal douche in a large pot of water for 3 to 5 minutes.
