The Ultimate Guide to Prepping for Booty Play
To Douche or Not to Douche?
Prepping your backdoor before any booty play is a solid move. But do you really need an anal douche for the job? Here's the lowdown:
Using an anal douche can give you peace of mind to enjoy anal play, help you feel fresh and clean down there, dislodge small traces of feces in the rectum, and it can be pleasurable for some.
Douching can also increase your risk of STIs and infections due by irritating the skin and creating micro-tears, and might disrupt the natural balance of bacteria and electrolytes, especially if you are using water. If done incorrectly, it can be quite messy, and can be a time-consuming project.
However, many of these things only really become an issue if you are douching too often! Using an anal douche once in a while, with a proper technique, is less likely to cause any harm.
How to Use an Anal Douche
Using an anal douche isn’t complicated, but it’s an important thing to get right. Here’s a quick and easy guide to using your anal douche safely…
Fill the Bulb with Warm Water
Make sure to use just lukewarm water to avoid damaging the delicate tissue inside your anus. You are actually much more sensitive to temperature internally, so err on the side of caution.
Apply some water-based anal lube to the tip of your anal douche as well as your anus, which will prevent any friction and help the douche slide in much more smoothly and comfortably.
No poking or prodding here, please! Take your time and insert your anal douche slowly, which will give you plenty of room to adjust your angle and depth. You don’t want to insert it too far at first, or you risk inserting it too far into your colon.
Squirt a Small Amount of Water
Squeeze the bulb of your anal douche (or activate the pump of your automated douche on a low setting) for no more than 10 seconds in the beginning. This will squirt a manageable amount of water into your rectum.
Hold It In, Then Release
Clench your butt muscles and hold the liquid inside your rectum for around 15 seconds, before relaxing and letting the water exit your body.
Repeat Until Water Comes Out Clean
You can keep repeating this process until the water is coming out clean. However, remember to keep inserting it at the same depth and add more lube if you need it.
How to Clean an Anal Douche
Cleaning your anal douche is vital if you want to keep it sanitary and hygienic to use. All you need to do is disassemble your douche as much as possible, and then use water and a mild, unscented soap to lather up everything before rinsing. Make sure to get into all the cracks and crevices to give it the most thorough clean possible.
