There are many people interested in deeper cleaning as a way of preparing for anal sex. Enemas or clysters have been around for a while, and you can even find ones that you can use by yourself. Shower enemas are among the easiest and safest way to clean your butt before anal play.
What Is a Shower Enema?
Enema is a way of injecting fluids into the lower bowel through the rectum. Sometimes, people use the word enema as a name for the fluid used in the process. But shower enemas are a bit different than the ones used throughout history. People usually imagine enema bags when thinking of clysters, and they can seem a bit sterile and dull. But nowadays, many companies create shower enema kits that you can use at home without professional help.
These kits are easy to install on the showerhead, and you can use them to clean yourself as a part of anal sex preparation. As you can probably guess, this method will use tap water instead of some special fluid, and you will utilize the shower to control the water pressure.
Shower shots or shower douches are a popular way of anal cleansing, and they can help with detoxifying and promoting regular and healthy bowel movement. Naturally, there are many different types of enema that you can attach to the hose or tap, as well as a variety of materials used.
Many people have been using shower enemas for years, and they can be fantastic sex toys. Furthermore, they have a special place in the BDSM community, especially among those who are into medical equipment and toys. Using water enemas can be both healthy and pleasurable as long as you know what you are doing and are careful in the process.
How to Install a Shower Enema
Most tap water enemas are made of stainless steel and are easy to install on the shower. Usually, there is a thread attached to a hose, similar to any type of screw or bolt. Once you remove the showerhead, you can replace it with an enema in just a few minutes. Of course, there are several different types of this toy available, and the process might be different based on the model you’ve picked. Some come with a hose, and they will either replace the showerhead or you will have to attach them to the bath tap.
The first type of shower enema is a temporary one. You will need to install it before each use and remove it as soon as you’re done with it. If you have one of these models, you will need to remove or unscrew the showerhead. Once you’ve done that, just replace it with the toy you bought, and it will be ready to use.
These enemas replace the showerhead, and you will need to remove them after each use to screw your showerhead back on. Since you won’t be using the enema as often as you will the shower, you will repeat the process before each use.
You attach permanent enemas to the tap, and they often come with a separate hose. Unlike the first type, you won’t need to install these every time you need them, and they will remain a part of your shower for as long as you want. These might be a bit trickier to install, but you will get everything you need when you buy the kit. Furthermore, you can still do this by yourself, and you won’t need to call a plumber and explain why you needed anal cleaning.
This type of clyster also has an extra valve that will allow you to use the shower normally, as you did before you installed the kit.
Using a Shower Enema
So how to use enema kits? Whether you picked a temporary or a permanent kit, the process is identical. Assuming you’ve already installed the enema kit, you will need to get in the shower — naked, of course. After that, just turn on the water, and you can start. One of the essential things to remember is to control water pressure. The tricky part of using these shower kits is finding the right pressure, while inserting too much water can cause problems. Just remember that you don’t need to force anything, so light water pressure will be more than enough. You can check the pressure by turning the douche upside down, and if the stream is going up around five inches before falling, you’ve nailed it!
Now that you’ve set up the perfect pressure, you can begin using an anal enema. The pressure will be enough to do the cleaning, and you don’t need to insert the nozzle into your butt. Moreover, all you need to do is place the nozzle against your anus, and the stream will be able to enter the anal canal and clean everything. If you’ve never had any experience with anal play, you might need to practice a bit to relax your muscles and anal sphincter to allow the water to freely enter the body.
How Long Should You Use It?
Now that we’ve established that you don’t need to stick a hose up your butt and use the highest possible pressure, you probably want to know how long you should rinse your butt. Your goal is to let the water enter your lower colon, and that’s it. The farther the water goes, the more difficult it will be to get it out. So you should use it for up to five seconds only. In reality, you only need to clean the first five or six inches, and five seconds will suffice.
It would be desirable to hold the water in for half a minute or more (two or three max). Overall, there is no reason to do the cleaning by yourself since the water will do everything. You can, however, jump up and down if it makes you feel better.
After a few minutes, all you will need to do is squirt the water out of your butt. It might be wise to do so in the toilet, but if you want, you can do it in the shower as well. Just know that the water might be quite dirty. Finally, repeat the process until the water coming out of your butt is clean. There is a chance that you’ll need to do this a few times. But once the water is clean, use soap and water or baby wipes to clean the exterior. Finally, your anal preparation is complete!
How Hot Should the Water Be?
Besides adjusting the water pressure, making sure it’s the right temperature is essential. You need to find what feels comfortable for you if you want to avoid injuries. The whole area around the anus is filled with nerve endings, and the last thing you need is to burn yourself down there. Ideally, the water should be lukewarm before you start with the process. So how to test if the water is neither too hot nor too cold (like for Goldilocks)?
The best idea is to try it out on the inside of your wrist. That way, you’ll know if you need to adjust the temperature until it’s comfortable and safe for your butt.
Are Shower Enemas Safe?
One of the most frequent questions people ask is whether water enemas are safe. The whole process we explained is safe as long as you follow the instructions and don’t force anything. Firstly, if the water from your shower is safe to drink, it is safe for enema as well. Of course, if you have any water problems, you shouldn’t try cleaning your butt this way.
Secondly, you shouldn’t insert the nozzle into your anus, and you must avoid high pressure. Filling up your colon with water can lead to rupture, and even the pressure could damage it. That is why it is vital to find the perfect spot if you want to do it safely and without any problems. Similarly, the temperature can be either too hot or too cold. That can be extremely unpleasant or even hurt you.
Finally, doing this type of cleaning too often can disrupt the natural microflora located in your gut. While clyster can be healthy and beneficial, overdoing it can lead to additional problems. So are water enemas safe? Yes, as long as you follow the “rules” and don’t overdo it.
For anyone wondering how to do an enema, using shower shots might be the easiest way. You install these kits on the bathroom tap, and they use regular tap water to clean your anus. Many use an enema before anal to ensure that everything is clean and to avoid making a mess. And if you were wondering if the process is safe, the answer is yes. As long as you follow the instructions, you will be able to enjoy yourself and have a shiny, clean butt.
