Frequently bits and pieces of good enema tips have appeared scattered here and there on the Internet. Sometimes it was a suggestion offered from an individual who learned it the hard way, other times it was echoes from some medical book or journal of nursing. Like most women, I love to clip and save, so over the years I have managed to collect quite a few interesting tips. I now share them all together, with you.
If you have been searching for a decent castile soap for your enema fun, try "Dr Bronners" scented liquid castile soap. It comes in several scents with peppermint being the most popular because of its tangy bite and somewhat hospital aroma. My personal favorite is Dr Bronners Almond Oil but most can be purchased from your local Health Food stores. Dr Bronners is very high in potassium, a necessary chemical for a healthy colon. I rate this and an overall safe and excellent product.
Some post enema symptoms that may indicate "unbalanced electrolytes" are dizziness, cold sweats, and nausea. It is reasonably safe for most people experiencing these symptoms to use 1 level teaspoon of common table salt per quart of water to prevent unbalancing your body chemistry (your fluid electrolytes). Some folks call this an isotonic enema.
Additionally, 1 oz of bicarbonate of soda per quart is suggested for individuals who experience hi colon acidity as an occasional by product of large volume enemas. The bicarb neutralizes the acidity and soothes the colon. In any case where unusual symptoms occur, check with your doctor.
Ideally, the erotic enema should be a two step process. First to cleanse the bowel with an 8 to 16 oz mild soapsuds enema which then prepares for additional higher volume or retention enemas. Of course there is no reason why the entire process cannot be integrated into your fantasy or roll playing games.
The average adult person can hold one to two and a half quarts of water in an unobstructed bowel. You will quickly learn your individual limit, however be especially sensitive and aware of the limit of any receiving partner.
Always have a well understood "safe" word. This applies to any adult activity where a potential exist for undesired problems. A typical safe word here could be "potty". In other words, if the recipient begs for relief using the words commode or toilet, the process continues. But if the safe word is used, everything is immediately halted.
Never use a douche apparatus for both enemas and douching. This includes changing nozzles and making use of a common hose and bag as bacteria can easily inhabit either. The risk of passing a bacterial infection is too great, especially for the woman.
If you get adventurous and decide to use professional enema parlors or the services of a Dominatrix, bring your own equipment or request the disposable Fleet's type enemas. Better operations will mandate you bring your own. Although it's possible to hygienically clean high quality enema appliances correctly, your health is not worth the risk that someone failed to do it after the last use.
If you actively enjoy enemas, believe it or not, Preparation H used after every two or three enemas can help keep your rectum and colon happy for life. You do not have to have hemorrhoids to benefit from using Prep H. Prep-H can help prevent relaxed and or dry colon syndrome when taking frequent enemas. Wait an hour after the last expulsion and insert one suppository (some people have reported the cream dispensed by the squeeze tube to be even more effective). If the anus itself is especially dry, let it pop in and out as it melts, to coat the outer rectum before final insertion. More fun, have your partner do it.
Be sensible, if anything gets irritated or sore from your enema activity, lay off a few days, rest good, and take chewable vitamin C to promote healing. Don't start up again until you know the problem is over.
Don't be reckless. Do not take or allow anyone to give you Wine or alcohol products in your enema solution unless you or they know the consequences. Alcohol, even in small quantities kills beneficial colon bacteria. You can do serious damage.
I am frequently asked if I have any good enema recipes. Never, I repeat, never experiment with exotic enema solutions, unless you know exactly what you are doing. i.e. you are an MD or chemist. The only absolutely safe solution I know, other than plain distilled water, is water plus a very mild irritant like hospital (castile) soap.
Never exceed 70 to 108 degrees of water temperature. (put your hand in the water, if it is uncomfortable to the skin on the top side of your hand, it is too hot). Aside from damaging tissue, temperatures over 100 degrees tend to kill the good resident bacteria that keep the colon healthy.
Never exceed 2 to 3 lbs of water pressure. Enema bag height should never be more than 24 inches above the rectum to play safe. In NO case connect your hose to the water pipes of your home (30 to 60 psi will rupture you in seconds).
Never take drugs rectally or via an enema unless your doctor prescribed them. You KNOW what were talking about here. Stay drug free.
Stay sensible, and you can enjoy enemas throughout your entire life. Goof up bad just once, and you could be seriously injured or dead.
Finally: Let your physician know you enjoy taking enemas....trust me, he has heard it many times before. Report any unusual conditions immediately, bleeding, growths, damage etc.
Remember, fantasies, roll playing and a good fetish can add much sparkle to old as well as new relationships. Keep an open mind if you are ever invited to participate in a fantasy or fetish with a partner, always remembering you have the right to politely decline. Never condemn or berate someone if they or you do not share a similar interest or viewpoint. If you do decide to participate, remember to use "safe" words and never lose sight of where fantasy ends and reality begins.
