Anal douching or rectal douching is where you clean your rectum, usually prior to anal penetration or using an anal sex toy. In order to do this, many people using a tool that aids them, this is called an anal douche.
Douching is a hygienic practice that cleans the rectum before anal insertion or penetration. Douching helps to remove hardened stools and clean the rectum.
Using an anal douche:
Anal douche’s are very straight forward and easy to use. Start by separating the nozzle from the bulb of the douche. Then wash the plastic tip; we also recommend cleaning the tip after use. Fill the bulb with liquid, many people use plain warm water (we strongly advise against using soap or other cleansing products as this can cause irritation and can also cause damage. Then attach the plastic nozzle to the bulb. The plastic tip is usually very slim, allow for easy insertion, however we also recommend that you apply a little bit of lubricant to both your anus and the tip to help ease insertion even more. Slowly insert the nozzle into your rectum, and then gently squeeze the bulb to insert the water into your rectum. Do not release the bulb until you have removed it from your rectum, as if you do you will experience ‘suck back’ where the douche re-fills with the water from your rectum. Once the douche is remove, sit back and expel the liquid. Many people will then repeat this process to make sure that they are properly clean, which can often take between 2-3 rinses.
