After reading a few of the posts earlier this week about long overnight enemas, I realized that I had neglected some of my larger enema bags as they are perfect to set up for a nice, long, slow flow with the potential for a fairly large volume if it was allowed to flow into me long enough and slow enough. I selected my natural latex 5-liter (plus) bag for this enema and knowing that I was going to fill myself quite slowly, I could use the hottest water out of the tap to mix up my baking soda enema solution. One of the effects of hot water is that it tends to expand the latex rubber bag so that if has a larger capacity. (When I pour in hot coffee to allow it to cool in the bag for a really big coffee enema (or two smaller ones), the bag capacity expands to just over 6 liters. The effect of cooling liquid doesn't shrink the bag though it does return to it's normal capacity after use.)
The hot tap water has a similar effect on the bag. I mixed up 6.0 liters of a hot baking soda enema solution. I poured the solution into the bag 600 ml at a time and gradually filled the bag. I also purged the hose of air all the way to the tip of the latex DBC nozzle. I inserted the nozzle and inflated it while I was standing in the bathroom. When the bag was nearly full (5.4 liters), I carried it out of the bathroom and went to hang the bag on the post at the foot of the bag. With the bag hanging from the top of the post, I poured in as much of the enema solution out of the cup and brought the volume all the way up 5.7 liters. I would pour in the remaining 300 ml later after I had taken in enough of the enema solution to pour the remainder in the bag. I settled onto the bed with a towel folded under me and opened the clamp for a very slow flow. The flow was slow enough that the 2.25 meters of hose allowed the solution to cool sufficiently before flowing into me. After about 10 minutes, I got up and poured in the remaining baking soda solution. And then settled back down on the bed to allow the enema to continue flowing in.
I'm guessing that somewhere around 1.25-liter had flowed into over about an hour period. No real pressure from that volume and very pleasantly warm. I thought I'd get a better sense of how much of the bag was left and how much had flowed into me by turning on a light so that the bag could be backlit. With the nozzle still in me at a slow flow, I didn't deflate the outer balloon before I got up and moved to turn on the lamp on the dresser. I may have barely bumped the post as I passed by, but I heard the post "crack." With more than 5 liters in the bag, the bag weighed more than 5 kg (11 pounds) and started to fall away from me and towards the edge of the bed. I caught the post before it fell all the way and snagged the bag by the hook. But a lot of liquid came out of the bag before I caught it.
I was left "holding the bag" while the post fell to the floor. I closed the clamp and while holding the bag, I used the towel that had been under me to sop up the liquid that reached the bed and the floor (though a pair of shoes got a lot wetter than I thought). After drying off some of the water, I went back into the bathroom, hung the bag up and decided to refill it. When I was ready, I brought out another towel and hung the bag from the nearest post on the headboard and continued with my slow enema. I recall having glued this post on the headboard when we brought it back from my MIL's condo nearly 16 years ago (it broke in transit). I guess the glue had gotten brittle after all these years and the weight of the bag pulling one way and maybe bumping it was all it took to snap it.
It could have been a lot messier and wetter had I not caught the bag on the way down. Not the first time I've held my own enema bag in position, but the first time in a while when the item holding it suddenly collapsed causing me to scramble with the nozzle in my ass.
Oh, I didn't t take the whole 6 liters plus what I added back to the bag. I took as much as I could and that left somewhere close to 4 liters in the bag. After expelling the first enema, I slowly took the remainder of the bag as I dozed off and on. The whole enema took about four hours.
When I put on my shoes in the morning, I realized my left shoe was still quite wet from the enema solution that had spilled out of the bag. I wore the shoes anyway and allowed it to dry throughout the morning as a reminder of my cleaned-out condition.
