I find most enema bags deceiving when it comes to knowing how much enema solution it really holds because I love challenging myself to see how much enema I can take from day to day. My question, do you really know or care?
Although I like 3 to 4 quarts, for a good cleanout I most often just do 2 quarts.
For me it does. I have to go to the limit to feel clean, usually between 3 and 4 l
Volume no longer is paramount to me.
Once upon a time I strove to expand my capacity beyond two quarts. Back then an orgasm always occurred during the enema which caused difficulty with draining the enema bag. Little by little my capacity increased.
One way was via the gradual stretching of my latex bag and the other way was by siphon-filling my combo bag. Sometimes I added extra solution to my open top bag, which was a pain to do.
I also experimented with a large pumpkin ice bag,using the four-in-one-cap from the two quart model. Doing that posed a suspension problem. so I didn't use it that often. It was awkward even when someone held it.
Somewhere in there I obtained my first single balloon nozzle. That helped deliver the added volume, but the orgasms were still an issue, as the larger enemas were quite erotic.
The black Sherema four quart bag meant no tricks to increase the enema volume. Age was also helping in that the involuntary ejaculations were less frequent. In a few years I was able to take four quarts. For a while there the knowledge of being able to take a four quart enema supplanted the sensations and pleasures of the enema itself.
Taking four quarts was never easy,and more often than not, it was a chore. I eventually decided to dial it back and put the emphasis on pleasure rather than measure.
For the past few years I've taken a handful of four quart enemas, Most have ranged in volume from one quart to three and a half. Predominately my enemas are either two and a half or three quarts of solution. A side benefit of the reduced volume has been an increase in the retention time of my non-double balloon enemas.
I love the full feeling! The more I can hold, the happier I am. I also like the pregnant look, so stretching the capacity to take more is good.
I like to take at least 2 quarts and generally do that without any trouble. Size isn't a big deal for me but do prefer getting my bowels full. I've taken 3 qts. comfortably many times. Can take about 3.5 qts. I find 4 qts to be rather uncomfortable and don't like it.
I usually have a Happy Ending when approaching the end of my 4 qt. bag. Less fluid feels great but doesn't make me smile as much. It also depends on how much time I have to spend. More water more time on the throne.
I have this fetish about taking the whole bag, so if I hang a 4-quart bag I expect to empty it. I almost always can. I love the tight stretched feeling of a 4-q filling, and have been known to experience explosive orgasms while in that condition.
Two quarts is my minimum. Anything less than that is not fulfilling or effective. At time I take four quarts. So, yes volume is most important to me.
Yes, volume is very important for me. I have always taken a full bag. If I start with 3 quarts, I will go to any length to take it all. I suppose I got into that habit with my first wife who always believed we had to 'take it all" and never waste any enema water. It is satisfying to see the bag finally go flat when it is completely empty.
Not really, what I can hold differs from time to time. I like to be as full as is erotically stimulating as it can get for me
I've done big enough (750-900ML) enemas to reach my cecum, and found that they affect me much more than a quick 200-500ML enema. I get nauseated, feel slightly faint, become sweaty and a little dizzy. And it isn't from electrolyte imbalance. Can you have a vaso-vagal reaction from enemas? Anyway, I don't try for max capacity, now.
Absolutely. But not necessarily large volume matters. More so the required volume for the desired result. A smaller amount of a crampy solution can be great, however I really do enjoy a big belly distention and imagining my colon stretching, so it's usually on the large volume side of things.
Yes we know Permitdrab we just love that full feeling and as time goes on we can take more volume
Yes capacity does matter
I care only as a measure from time to time with a person - although 3 and occasional 4 quarts are nice milestones.
I have done 4 qt enemas on occasion, but in reality, I find I enjoy multiple 2 to 3 qt enemas as a rule.
I think it matters to me. I started off my enema 'career' doing two litre enemas with no ability to control the flow or stop it until it was finished (due to the home made nature of my kit and lack of funds to buy the gear at the age of 12). So two litres non-stop at a fairly rapid flow doesn't really register with me.
Going up to three litres was more challenging and as my gear has become more sophisticated I have learned about different flow rates and solutions.
4litres was a definite landmark. That was a salt and bicarb mix. Very gentle and filling. I was very happy with myself for that one. I have tried to go larger than that but I feel that 4litres stretches me enough and I don't want to do any damage.
Now, the ultimate I have done was a 4litres strong lemon juice enema. That was thorough in it cleaning out of me. I had to do that in the bath with a double balloon nozzle.
@Lisa (Post 80) -- "Volume is one more factor in an effective enema. The main focus needs to be on effectiveness. Whatever volume it takes to be effective, that's what you have to do!"
It depends on our definition of "effective." What might be an effective volume for washing a few grams of stool out of the colon might be different from the volume one might seek for sexual pleasure. But you are right in either case!
Yes, volume matters to me. I like the full feeling I get from at least 4 quarts and sometimes 6 quarts. I certainly believe large volumes are definitely not for everybody. I am sure many people are happy with 2 or less quarts.
I agree with Wild Bill, volume does matter. The amount of fluid that fills my rectum, and colon is vital to my enjoyment of the enema. I love to feel the fluid as every part of the intestine expands. I do feel that enemas of only a few ounces might do it for some folks, but my enjoyment comes from large volume enemas that completely fill my colon. Like Bill says, I love enemas of at least 6 quarts and usually more. Enemas serve many functions but for me it is enjoyment first and fore-most..
Yes, I think it matters to me. I do enemas for pleasure and for cleansing. Distension is pleasurable; and also effective for getting the enema solution right up into the caecum where is can get at the 'mud' that inhabits that bit of us. If that mud doesn't emerge, I don't feel I have finished what I came to do; and it certainly won't budge unless provoked. I take psyllium husk very morning for two reasons: first, to avoid constipation, and second, I enjoy how it alters the contents of the caecum, for it changes the 'mud' into jelly. Moreover, it's jelly that coheres far more than the sweet made with gelatine. In fact, it's like a semi-solid blob that frequently emerges in one piece - a very obviously signal that the enema reached its goal.
tot get to this point I need about 4,5 litres of solution; but I make a point I seldom see on this site: the volume of the retention device. When I say I take 4,5 litres of solution, I am stating what went out of the enema bucket/bag ind into me. But before it even began to flow, I had pumped up the inflatable cuff on my colon tube to one litre capacity (my anus is quite stretched as that is another of my pleasures). So the whole amount of extra content is actually 5,5 litres when full.
Once I have emptied out, I take an even larger rinse enema - no surprise there, for there are no longer any faeces left int me!
Quatity does not matter the point it to get a good cleansing for me for start always 2 liter and 3 till clear water come out
Not so much for me. Maybe it's because I am relatively inexperienced compared to many of you and I will learn to like big volumes in time.
But right now, it is the preparation (major turn-on), the insertion of the nozzle, and the initial rush of the very warm water that gets me. I am perfectly happy with stopping after a quart or so if I feel full, and then repeat. The primary focus for me is not to clean out my whole gut, but plain fun. I am really beginning to like a quart of coffee held for 30 minutes or longer after a small enema to clean out my bottom. I can't do that with a full gut holding 2 or more quarts. That's just the way I am.
I used to use a 2 quart bag but found it was not all that satisfying and it did not do the job. I switched to a 4 quart and find it works well and is enjoyable and satisfying. In other words, volume for its own sake may not be important to me, what I want is a good experience.
Volume is not that important as sensations of that volume going in.
Many enemates would agree with me that in one technique a large volume enema can give almost no feelings while in other technique even small volume enema can be quite an experience. Also, in one case 1 quart can be given for ten minutes, in other case 4 quarts are done in two minutes.
What about deceiving size of some enema bags, I once was disappointed after buying one such bag, but learned a useful trick. I gave an enema from that bag twice, without a break. The patient experienced it much stronger than one enema from a large-volume bag.
Yes, volume does matter to me, if I don't have a series of at least three 3 to 4-quart enemas I don't feel I have really done a good cleaning job, and I also enjoy the feeling of a large-volume enema.
Not in the least for me. I have discovered that I can physically take a 4-qt enema, but am actually much more satisfied with multiple 2-qt enemas.
For me, it doesn't really matter. What ever feels good is fine for me. My limit seems to be about 2 quarts. A little less than two liters feels best most of the time. I don't see any reason to force more inside--why should I?
I am giving myself enemas for pleasure, not for competition. So all I care for is that it makes me feel good.
It does MATTER.
I normally take from 2 to 3 quarts for enema. That is my comfort zone for volume that feels best for me. I have done 4 quarts a few times but have found it to be a bit too much and not as comfortable and so have stayed with lower volume version. The pleasure is much better with 2 to 3 quarts and the clean out benefit is just as good as a larger volume enema.
