The standard enema apparatus available in the drug store can be divided into several
types. There is the open-top fountain syringe, usable for enemas and douches. There is the
closed-top type bag, which can also be used as a hot-water bottle. There is the four-way
type, which also is intended to be used as an ice bag. Most of these units offer 2 quart
capacity. If that is the limit of your capacity, the open-top fountain syringe is the best
type to use, because it is very convenient. The enema and douche nozzles that come with
these units leave much to be desired. There are also discreet type units sold primarily
for feminine hygiene use, but some come with enema tips also. These are good because a
woman can put them in her purse.
Shy - An expandable syringe which is filled by pressing the mouth of the bag against the
sink faucet. This bag will hold 4 quarts. The big drawback is that it has no way to shut
off the flow except to remove the bag from the tube, which will cause the water to flow
from the rectum. What you need to do is to attach a hose with a clamp to the nozzle, which
is inserted into the bag. You can pour liquid soap into the bag before filling with water.
Here are some descriptions of exotic enema equipment you can build from commonly available
The faucet enema is not for the inexperienced. If you don't have much enema experience, I
suggest that you start with a standard 2-quart open-top fountain syringe from the local
drug store. When you get able to take 2 fillings of the bag at one time, then you are
ready to get more exotic.
Actually, the equipment for the faucet enema is available at any hardware store. It is
called a shower hose adapter for the bathtub faucet. It has a rubber fitting that fits
over the bathtub faucet, a hose, and a rubber shower head. Attach the faucet fitting to
the bathtub faucet, remove the shower head from the end of the hose, and you are ready.
Set the faucets to a gentle flow, with a temperature that feels a little warm to the
tongue. Sit on the edge of the tub, and ease the flowing hose against and then into your
rectum. You will feel the water filling your rectum. Relax the bowels as much as you can,
and you don't need to worry about spilling a little
water into the tub. When the bowels feel full, remove the hose and wait a moment. The
feeling of pressure should pass, then insert again. When you are totally full, move to the
toilet and expel the water. You can repeat the process as many times as you like. Since
the water is always running, you can move back and forth between the tub and toilet very
get a good cleaning out in about a half hour to 45 minutes. When the bowel is clean, take
as much water as you can, and then enjoy the sexual release. When completely filled, don't
miss looking at your distended belly in the mirror. You can also adapt a colon tube or
other nozzle to the flexible hose on a personal shower head.
A few cautionary notes about the above procedure! The pressure from the water faucet is
enough to burst the colon. Don't let the pressure rise too much in the bowel. When the
pressure is strong, pull the tube out, or let the water pass out of your rectum. Don't
take water that is too hot. Use some lubricant on the anus first, and after every few
If you have a very large colon, or have heart disease, the water absorption can be deadly.
You must use water with salt in it to avoid "hyponatremic shock" - dilution of
A 4 quart enema jug can be made from a Rubbermaid 1 gallon orange-juice pitcher. Drill a
hole near the bottom of the pitcher, insert an all-thread pipe nipple of about 3/8"
size, and seal with nuts pressing on rubber washers sealed with RTV (bathtub caulk) or
contact cement. Attach plastic tubing to exposed end of pipe nipple, held with hose clamp,
and sealed with same sealant. You will have to make or order a large diameter enema nozzle
or colon tube, although the end of the plastic tube can be smoothed off and used just like
A 4 quart bag can be made from a Faultless brand ice bag. Drill a hole in the center of
the plastic cap, and adapt as above with the pipe nipple, etc. Get an 8-32 Eye Bolt with
machine screw threads, 2 8-32 fender washers as large as available, and 2 8-32 nuts. Poke
a hole in the center of the end of the bag opposite the filling mouth just big enough to
take the eye bolt. screw one nut onto the eye bolt. Place a washer on the eye bolt. Put
contact cement onto the washer facing away from the ring end. Push into the bag from the
outside. Coat the other washer with contact cement, and place over the exposed end of the
eye bolt inside the bag. Screw the other nut on to hold the bag between the two washers.
This should provide a leak-proof hanging hook for the bag. Glop some contact cement on the
and nut to prevent rust. Voila! A 4-quart enema bag!
Nozzles and tubes:
There are many different types of nozzles and tubes available for inserting into the
rectum. What you want is either a colon tube (a rubber tube from 1/4" to 1/2"
diameter and anywhere from 10" to 3 feet long) or a nozzle with a bulb on the end, to
help you hold it in. These are called "N-Tips". Some of the best drug stores
carry these items, but you will have to ask for them.
Some drug stores also carry the phosphate high-volume bag enema or an equivalent brand,
these are made of plastic and will not deteriorate when oils are used, as a rubber bag
will. The "high-volume bag" usually holds 2500 CC (over 2 quarts) but in the
same series, the manufacturers make a barium enema
container which can be ordered, and it has 3500 cc capacity (almost 4 quarts). Medical and
ostomy stores carry many of these items. These are considered disposable, but with a
little care they will last a long time.
The Colon Tube is a straight tube with a rounded end, and usually a small hole in the side
near the tip. They come in many sizes, and are usually measured in "French"
sizes. 28 French is a small tube, and 36 is fairly large.
The N-tip is really made to help patients hold a barium enema, but many people use them
for other enemas. It is made of molded plastic.
A balloon retention catheter, which has a rubber balloon (they usually come in 50
upto 500 cc sizes) near the end of what would otherwise be an ordinary colon tube. When
the balloon in inflated with
air from a bulb, it makes it impossible for the tube or the solution to come out until the
balloon is deflated. These tubes are nearly always made of gum latex, and you must be sure
not to use Vaseline or oil on them.
