I couldn't do either. That's just freaking awkward IMHO. I only give my wife enemas. The night before my back surgery, they sent a 50ish year old dude named Mick to prep me. His weird looking ass didn't take two steps into my room before I said "Oh hell no! No fucking way Hoss!" I hit the call button and asked for the attending RN. She asked what I wanted, and I told her if they didn't send a female to take care of my prep, I was packing my shit up and going home. The RN came to my room and said "some men prefer having a male orderly do the prep." I said "well that's them, but I don't want a punk messing with my private areas." She said "okay, I understand, we'll set you up with Mandy." I didn't know who Mandy was, just as long as it was a chick. In about 5 minutes, the door opened, and in walked the cutest little brunette CNA you've ever seen in your life. Not Hollywood beautiful, just plain cute as a button. She was really nice too, and very mature mannered to be so young. I figured she'd really embarrass me with what she was about to do, but it wasn't that bad. In a span of about 1hr 15min, I got my back, ass, and hips shaved slick as an onion. Then the worst of it came when she flushed me out with a 3qt barium enema kit. That young lady sure knew how to use that thing. I ended up getting almost 2 1/2 bags of tepid soap water run through my guts before I pooped clear results. No, that wasn't fun, but I actually felt better when she got through. But at least I kept my dignity no matter how uncomfortable or embarrassing it was.
