It’s certainly a conversation that many feel uncomfortable engaging in, but that is EXACTLY why I am here! Frankly, this is not just a topic for homosexual and bisexual men. I think by now we all know anal sex is not limited to one sexuality. So with that being said, let’s jump straight into the basic, most popular types of a douching “device”. Then I’ll go into FULL details about the precautions and debates.
A shower douche can be connected to a shower or bathtub tap. Some devices can be permanently attached or you can attach when needed. This device is for a deeper cleaning as you have adjustable pressure. The good thing about this type of douche is that you get a consistent flow rate.
Most popular. Cheap and effective. It is simply a bulb that you can fill with warm water and then insert into the anus, and squeeze the bulb to allow the water to enter.
Water Bag Douches
Similar to the Hydrodouche, this one is a bag filled with warm water and hung high. Likely from the shower head or a door (but don’t quote me on that). These things are mobile friendly. You just fill the bag with water and use the little adapter to adjust the water flow.
Should I douche?
Well, if you ask me I’ll say, “Hell to the f**k YES!” I personally enjoy the clean feeling after a good flush, but that is a little too personal. Therefore, let me keep this as direct and professional as possible. I’d prefer to be “clean” before sexual activities. I also expect my partner to be “well prepared”. Though there is a hidden debate in that. Some people see douching as a health risk. Slightly agreeing, too much of anything can be bad for you. Remember, there are good bacteria in the gut. That bacteria helps your body digest and absorb nutrients. So if you cleanse, keep it to a minimum and only do it as needed. – OH! Also, I’ve read an article back in 2013 regarding how douching damages the lining of the anus. Furthermore, consult your doctor. (That was my disclaimer, lol)
How do I do it?
Depends on the device. But it’s simple. Make sure you use WARM (not hot, not cold) water and some silicone lube. Insert the “device” 1-2 inches. Keep in mind that the lowest part needs to be cleaned for anal sex. If you’re using the bulb, DO NOT stop squeezing the bulb because the water will suck right back into the bulb causing a strange pressure. Instead, remove the bulb and then stop squeezing. Once the water is inside, you want to go to the toilet and release. Flush. Then do it all over again. You’ll need to do this until the toilet water is clear. So yes, you’ll need to flush each time you release.
