At 77 years old. enemas have been an integral part of my life. I have taken them for both health and pleasure usually at a rate of one per day. They have been all self administered with only a few exceptions. The changes that have occurred during that time have been of increased volume, frequency and well being. They have been all self administered with only a few exceptions. The changes that have occurred during that time have included increased volume, equipment changes and procedures.
When I was young, about six, my mother ceased administering my enemas and I began using her four ounce bulb syringe in the bath tub by myself. At ten or eleven,, I began to use the combination syringe that hung on the bathroom wall. At 13, I purchased an open top fountain syringe which I used daily for three years or so until my mother found it and disposed of it in the trash. Soon thereafter, I obtained a two liter "feminine"l folding travel syringe made of gum rubber. That bag was my favorite for several years until it disintegrated beyond sensible repair. I miss it to this day. I next invested in a 1.5 liter combination syringe and several disposables. I found that I could fill with two liters and thus I began to expand the capacity of my colon.
Later, as I became more experienced, I found that 1.5 Liters was not enough and I could take more. I used four quart jugs with siphons. Then. with some experimentation, I found that I could connect two of the 1.5 Liter bags in parallel to make the equivalent volume of three or more Liters. To do this, each of the two small bags was connected to the two top arms of a tubing"T" while the rectal pipe connected to the bottom leg.
To bring the ways that enemas have changed my life and I have changed enemas to my physical and psychological life and keep it healthy. These changes continue with 3 inventions of mine whose descriptions have been posted on this site.
They are: 1. Bottle cap check valves to prevent reverse flow of enema water from the colon into the bag.
2. A piston type enema pump to allow enema administration with low line pressure.
3. The Jugbag enema syringe that allows 4 Liter enemas using a scrapped plastic jug.
The question that was posed here was, "Have you become more receptive of enemas with age?" I have not only become more receptive but look forward to each and every one!
