DIY Anal Douche | Guide To Success

Anal sex is surrounded by a lot of stigmas, and yes, sometimes these can be quite bad for its reputation. The presence of feces on fingers, penis, or even on a sex toy during sex can be a complete turn-off for most people. Such an experience could end your mood for sex for quite a long time.

Douching, also called an enema helps avoid such incidents by cleaning your rectum and the anal canal before sex, leaving you ready for backdoor play. If you want to learn how to prepare yourself for anal sex as well as how to make your own douche, keep reading and find out all you need to know!

How To Prepare For Anal Sex?

Before we dive into the preparation steps, let’s talk about what an anal douche comprises. It has two co-joined main parts: 

  • The bulb: This holds the liquid you’ll need to spray up your anus for cleaning.
  • The nozzle: This is a hollow tube you insert in your anus to squirt the liquid into your rectum. 

Now that we know that, let’s dive into the specifics of preparing yourself for anal sex. First, clean and rinse your hands and the preferred douching equipment. Then, fill the bulb part of the anal douche with the cleaning liquid, preferably warm water. A word of caution: do not use liquids with sugar because you risk developing a yeast infection. You don’t want that, right?

Lukewarm water is the best choice for douching your anus. Don’t use too cold water as it may freeze your internal organs, and you will not enjoy anal sex. If the water is too hot you may risk suffering painful burns.

Relax your rectum muscles, open the sphincter and allow the nozzle up your body. Use lube to insert the nozzle and finger easily in your anus.

Expel the liquid by pressing the bulb using moderate pressure. If you feel any pain, stop. This process should feel comfortable from start to finish. Hold the liquid in for one to two minutes, then squirt it out. Repeat the process to clear anything and everything.

There is no doubt about it that a self-made anal douche can do all that – clean your anus for uninterrupted and pleasurable anal sex. And no uncomfortable situations in a sex toy shop. Sounds good to me!

Avoid Embarrassments

It can be embarrassing and uncomfortable when you realize that your partner saw your poo during anal sex. It’s also quite uncomfortable for your partner to witness such a mess while thrusting, right? To avoid the shame and awkwardness that may come with such an incident, you should consider a DIY anal douche for sure.

Safety First

A DIY anal douche helps you to clean up the immediate area of the rectum. It does not meddle with the deeper parts of the colon. As a result, you do not risk harming the sensitive tissues inside your colon. 

Improved Sexual Health

DIY anal douche helps keep your hygiene at the highest level before anal sex, leaving you clean and fresh. The removal of leftover feces and harmful bacteria from your rectum, which is part of the douching process, improves your general sexual health.

Anal douching takes anywhere between 10 to 30 minutes. When you decrease the douching liquid to small amounts, the whole process takes a shorter time. Given that douching takes very little time, this sexual hygiene process is ideal for impromptu booty calls. 

Besides, it’s cheaper to have a self-made anal douche because you don’t need to visit any drug store to buy the douching equipment or enemas. You only need a few home-based products to begin douching and you’re ready for delicious anal play!

Increased Confidence

Obviously, after a DIY anal douche, you will have increased confidence in having anal sex. When neither of you is worried about any accidents during anal intercourse, the comfort itself is an incredible turn-on. This increased level of confidence may relax your anal muscles, leading to more enjoyable sex. 

Explosive Orgasms

When you are not worried about disgusting your sexual partner with feces during sex, it gives you the chance to focus entirely on having a mind-blowing orgasm.

Like vaginal sex, anal sex may happen randomly. Most people say the best sex is unplanned, and half of the time, this is true. It may occur when you least expect it and anywhere, even away from home. You will feel more relaxed and cleaner if you already had your anal douche. 

What’s The Best Time For Anal Douching? 

Anal douching should be done way before anal sex. This is because there are always chances of water remaining in your anus until later. To avoid the embarrassment of water splashing out during sex, you should douche early enough. Doing it earlier also allows the rectum’s natural mucous to recover, reducing friction during anal sex.

Avoid sharp and rigid-edged objects that may harm your anal soft tissues. While douching, do not press the tool too hard or too deep. When you insert a douche nozzle in your rectum and it’s followed by pain or you notice bloodstains, stop immediately and clean up gently.

You should then take a break until you feel better and safer to resume douching. If the pain or blood persists, you need to consult with your doctor. 

While douching, do not flush in large amounts of water all at once as you may experience cramps if you do. To ease the pain, stretch your back, apply some inward force on your abdomen, or jump to flush liquid out. 

Consider having a healthy diet for easy anal douching. The right portion of fiber for your body reduces debris in the colon, and drinking a lot of water will make it easy to clean out.

To remove any loose poo hanging in the rectum, you will have to repeat the anal douche process a couple of times until the water is clear.

PRO TIP #1: Avoid spicy and oily foods before douching and anal sex. 
PRO TIP #2: Restraining the water to your rectum’s entryway during douching reduces the time needed to clean things up.

For best results, close your anus when you let water in during anal douching and hold the water inside. As funny as it sounds, you should then jiggle and jump to rinse your inner walls before flushing the water out. The process may take longer if you do not close up your anus during douching as the water will leak out.

It’s vital to clean any items used in anal douching with hot water and soap before and after use. It should go without saying, that your hands should also be clean throughout the process.

If someone else wants to use the same equipment for douching, they should consider cleaning them up to prevent the transmission of Sexually Transmitted Diseases. It’s best that you don’t share douching equipment with other people in general.

It’s advisable to maintain low water pressure when douching because high pressure can damage the anus and rectum. The water should also be at room temperature to avoid messing with your electrolyte balance. It sounds like rocket science at first, but once you get down to it, it’s fairly easy to do.

Homemade DIY Anal Douche

Without the right douching equipment, you may have a difficult time flushing the rectum. There are sensitive tissues in the rectum; therefore, you need to be keen on the tools you use for this process. If you are away from home or in a rush, you may have to improvise to come up with a creative DIY anal douche method. Here are some excellent examples worth considering. 

Using A Water Bottle For Anal Douching

Before anal douching, you should have a complete bowel movement. The bowel movement helps get rid of fecal deposits from your rectum and it helps avoid the urge to use the bathroom during anal sex. Thus leaving you to focus on the main thing – endless pleasure!

Your fingers and the water bottle should be clean and lubed for easy insertion. Consider getting a bottle with a small and soft tip, and the bottle itself should be squeezable. Using rigid bottles makes it more difficult to flush the douching liquid up your anus. 

Given that anal douching can be a little bit messy, consider doing it in a bathtub or a toilet. After positioning yourself, relax and gradually insert the filled-up bottle of water into your anus. Then, squeeze the bottle gently and feel the water flowing in your rectum until it feels full.

Make sure you let in just a small amount of water at a time. Letting in small amounts of water at a time prevents injuries that may be caused by forcing too much water into your rectum.

Relax your sphincter as you sit on the toilet or tub, allowing the fecal deposits and water to flow out. For a cleaner anus, repeat the douching a few times. Keep repeating the process until when the water flowing out is clean. Avoid using a plastic bottle more than once for douching due to the toxic chemicals plastics contain, which can be harmful to your anal tissue.

Using A Shower Hose For Anal Douching 

Showers provide a cleaner and deeper alternative to DIY anal douches. If you choose this option, you need to disconnect the showerhead from the shower hose. Then, clean up the hosepipe with water and soap, and rinse it thoroughly to get rid of the soapy remains. Simple enough so far!

Remember to set the water pressure to low and the temperature to lukewarm. When ready, turn on the hosepipe to confirm if the water pressure is low and that the temperature is lukewarm. Avoid directing the water up to your rectum before testing its pressure and temperature.

If the hosepipe provides varying water temperatures or pressure not to your liking, you may need to find a different one. Do not place the hose directly into your anus; instead, hold it at a distance. If the pressure is too low, keep holding the hose close to your anal opening and then slowly adjust the pressure. 

PRO TIP #3: Avoid adjusting the water temperature with the hose directed at your rectum. This helps avoid a sudden temperature rise or drop.

After filling up your rectum with water:

  1. Hold the water inside with the anus closed.
  2. After a minute, spray the water out of your anus.
  3. Repeat the process until the water comes out clean. 

How To Anal Douche With A Syringe 

A larger syringe will serve you better in the DIY anal douche process. This is because you do not need to refill it so many times. Please note that you should never use a needle-based syringe for this process. Instead, use a needleless syringe with a soft tip. 

Use a lubricant to prepare your anus before inserting the soft tip. If possible, slowly insert your finger up your anus and relax your anal muscles first. Do this anal play repeatedly until you are ready to insert the soft tip of the syringe. Insert the syringe’s nozzle slowly at the opening and then deeper as you relax your anal muscles. 

You do not have to finish the water in the syringe in one go. Hold the water in your anus and jump around on a non-slippery surface and swish yourself. Squirt the water out and repeat this anal douche process until clean water comes out. 

Bottom Line

With that being said, all that’s left is for you to enjoy back door fun without worrying about any embarrassing situations. Always be careful when douching and make sure to protect yourself so that you can enjoy yourself to the fullest. Hopefully, we managed to ease you up on the idea of a homemade anal douche.
