Enema resources for a better life

For The Receiver:
  • You will need to Pick a position that makes you comfortable  . Be sure you can relax. Make sure it  is a place you can clean up if an accident happens to occur. The administrator  also has to have clear access to your anus.
  • Anal  Lubrication . Have the administrator massage lubricant (Super Salve  Surgilube) inside your anus and rectum. This will help you relax for the nozzle / colon tube to be inserted. You might want to take a couple of deep breaths as the administrators finger passes your anal sphincter. You want your anus to admit the lubricated finger which will help you relax and be able to receive the enema more comfortably.
  • Relax, as the administrator turns on the flow, mentally picture yourself receiving the enema. A good administrator will stop or slow the flow if you experience any cramping. Many problems occur if you panic, try to relax, everything will be fine. If cramps do occur (and they sometimes do during your first enema) have the administrator stop the flow, Take several deep breaths, and try massaging your abdomen.

  • If you feel you must evacuate, ask the administrator to stop the flow. Relax, the desire will usually pass in a few seconds as your colon relaxes as the enema penetrates further into the large intestine.
  • You will probably feel your stomach expanding. Let it. Try to hold the enema for a few minutes. (5 to10 minutes is usually long enough time for the enema to produce a good bowel movement)
  • When it is time to evacuate, take yourself (with the tube still in place) to the toilet. Wait until you are in a position to evacuate before you remove the nozzle. Although you can remove the nozzle and proceed to the toilet to evacuate the contents of your colon. Many people will take the wash cloth and fold it several times,and then place it tightly against their anus after removing the nozzle, Then proceed to the toilet.
  • After you evacuate, take several deep breaths and feel the lightness and euphoria that commonly follow a good enema or enema series.

The Administrator :

The administrator of the enema has most of the responsibility. The enema recipient is usually embarrassed and in a humiliating position. You need to respect their modesty in everything that you do. The following advice should make the process go as smoothly as possible.

  • Talk to the recipient and try to alleviate some of the embarrassment.  Explain the procedure to them.
  • Body Sounds that accompany an enema,  If it's passing gas on the toilet or moaning.You can use a radio or music in the bathroom to help some.
  • Offer privacy when the recipient is expelling and actually give it, don't wait outside the door for them to come out.
  • Lubricate the recipients anal area. A finger works great for this purpose.Apply a liberal amount of lubricant (Sliquid Organics H2O  Surgilube) to your finger tip and to the inside and outside of the recipients anus. Next, press the tip of your finger into the center of the recipients anus. Use about enough pressure to break an egg shell. Applying constant pressure for a second will allow the anus to receive your finger. Apply the lubricant liberally working it in and out. Assuming your partner reacts positively to anal stimulation, I'm sure they won't mind.
  • Hang the enema bag about 1 foot to 18 inches above the anus. Hanging the bag higher will produce more pressure and flow, lower will produce less pressure and flow. Dropping the bag below the anus can result in back-flow into the enema bag during the procedure.
    Open clamp and allow air to escape tubing before inserting nozzle or colon tube into the anus

  • Insert the nozzle, learn from the experience with your finger. You should know how much pressure will be required. The nozzle should slide right in.
  • Open the clamp slowly. Don't try to give the entire enema at once. It can take up to 15 minutes to administer. If the receiver has a full colon (hasn't recently defecated) they may not be able to receive as much solution. If you want, have them evacuate and receive another enema. This procedure can be repeated until the recipient can take a complete filling without having to evacuate.
  • While filling the recipient, watch for signs of cramping. If this occurs you should slow or stop the flow until the recipient can relax.
  • You might want to massage the recipients stomach to encourage the solution further into the colon.
  • When the recipient needs to evacuate you need to stop the flow and encourage the recipient to retain the enema as long as possible. While waiting for the recipient to expel their enema this is a good time to clean your equipment.

When receiving the enema:
Massage abdomen in a counter-clockwise direction this will help move the solution higher into the colon.

When expelling the enema:
Massage abdomen in a clockwise direction this will help move the solution back toward the rectum and anus.
