I've posted this elsewhere on Zity, but just in case anyone is interested in reading this, I'll post it again.
My first enema was administered to me when I was 4 or 5 years old. My mom's mother was the enema provider in the family. She was pretty handy with enemas which gave really good results. My sister and I would stay with my grandparents two weeks during the summer. Mom and dad would drop us off with them and spend two weeks on their own. During those two weeks, my grandmother quietly kept track of our bowel movements and after a couple of days of no movement, would ask me if I had ‘gone to potty’ recently. I said ‘no’, and she took me to the bathroom, stripped me down to total nudity, and had me lay face down on the bathroom floor. She pulled the bag from the bathroom cabinet, and proceeded to partially fill it. It might have been one or two pints. I can't remember which nozzle she used, probably the smaller one.
I remember not being scared or upset, as I trusted her in taking care of me. She usually addressed my other health care needs, such as earaches and colds, so why not trust her with my bowel care?
I don't remember her inserting the nozzle, so I can't recall how it felt. I only remember hearing the click of the metal clamp opening up and feeling the immediate flood of warm water into my colon. I think she held the nozzle in place while I was being filled. I do remember watching the bag deflate and was fascinated in how an enema worked. Again, I don't remember being scared at this point, only a little uncomfortable due to the pressure in my belly. Granted, had I been placed on my back to receive the enema, I might have been more comfortable and enjoyed it more. Soon, all the water in the bag was in my belly and my grandmother had me lay on the floor for a few minutes after the fill. When a sufficient amount of time passed, she had me on the toilet for release.
Not having to be told twice, I let go with the now usual gushes of water and waste. It was an incredible feeling. The empty colon felt so much better than being blocked up. After release, I told my grandmother how much better I felt. This is what sold me on enemas. I was more than willing to endure a little discomfort if I knew I would feel so much better afterward.
After that first time, it was virtually guaranteed I would get at least one enema during our two week summer visits with the grandparents. Sometimes two were in store, depending on my appetite for grandmother's food, which I always had seconds. These yearly enemas continued until I was around 9 or 10. I do not know why she stopped them. I should have asked for one, just to see what she would have said.
Anyway, that's how I came to love a good enema and enema series.
