So you want to use an enema but don’t know where to start? We are here to give you the low-down and teach you how to use an anal enema for the very first time.
If you learn how to use an anal enema and practice proper hygiene before having anal sex then you will be in for some of the cleanest sex you have ever had!
I cannot emphasize how much using an enema can improve anal sex. So my advice is to give douching a try!
How do I use an Anal Enema?
Time needed: 20 minutes.
How to Use an Anal Enema
- Choose a medical grade anal enema.
It is important your enema is comfortable to use and made from materials that are body safe.
There are a lot of different enema types and sizes, and choosing the right one comes down to personal choice.
For this guide we will be using a standard bulb enema which works for most people. You can view a list of recommended enemas at the end of this guide.
- Go to the bathroom naturally.
Before you use your enema, you want to flush your system naturally.
When using the bathroom, be sure to take your time and try not to strain yourself.
- Wash the anal entry.
You can easily cleanup in the shower with a finger and some warm water and mild soap. You want to make sure the entry area is clean before you use your enema.
- Fill the pouch with room temperature water.
To fill your enema, remove the enema tip to access hole at the top of the bulb. Be sure the water is not too cold or too hot – room temperature water works best. When the enema is filled, reattach the tip.
- Apply lubricant to the enema tip.
A bit of lube will help make insertion smoother and more comfortable. We recommend using an anal lube maximum lubrication and comfort.
- Insert the tip slowly, about half-way inside.
Gently slide in the tip of the enema so that it is about an inch inside. Remember to go slowly and apply more lubrication if needed. When inserting, it is best to do this over a toilet.
- Compress the enema bulb slowly, and allow the water to flow inward.
As you compress the enema bulb, the water will begin to flow inside. This may be a very strange sensation. It is best to relax the abdomen and remain over the toilet for the duration of this step.
Depending on how deep you want to clean, you can do multiple bulbs of water per flush. The more water you use, the deeper you will clean.
- Continue to press the bulb, and do not release.
It is very important that you DO NOT release the enema bulb after it is fully pressed. The pressure difference will cause dirty water to rush back into the pouch. That would be bad.
- Slowly remove the the enema.
With the bulb still compressed, remove the enema. This will likely be a strange sensation, as you slide the tip out. Try to relax and move slowly.
- Allow the water sit inside for one to three minutes.
Giving the water enough time to sit will allow any leftover residue soften. Be patient and allow the water to do its work.
- Over the toilet, push the water out.
Release any water and remaining residue, just as you would use the bathroom normally. Take your time and evacuate any remaining water.
- Repeat this process one to three more times.
Try to limit your self to 3 flushes a session to avoid irritation. It is smart to wait 30 minutes to an hour after douching before having sex. This will allow any tissue irritation to subside, and give your body time to regulate.
With practice and patience, using an enema is pretty simple and effective. For those of you reading who don’t have one already, you might be wondering…
What is the Best Anal Enema?
Medical Grade Bulb Enemas
The best anal enema for most people is the Pros Enema (pictured above) because it has a simple design that is safe, convenience, and easy to fill and clean.
Most importantly, the narrow tip is comfortable to use, and a bulb made of medical grade silicone.
The 4 different sizes range fro beginner to more heavy duty situations. For most people, the Medium size will do the job.

Shower head enemas are better suited for more advanced users. These work by attaching to your bathroom faucet or shower head and shoot water directly inside.
Shower enemas can be much better at cleaning deep inside to flush everything out. If you are looking to use one of these, just be sure to take extra care about water temperature, flow, and pressure.
But for the brave hearted, shower enemas are a great douching companion!

How To Use an Anal Enema – Wrap Up
Douching is a great way to clean up before sex. Although it is useful you should limit yourself to doing it a few times a week.
It can cause irritation to the colon wall if used too often and can also make you rely on it. This can make going to the bathroom naturally more difficult.
Remember to follow the above steps closely and soon it will become second nature. You will notice an improvement in the quality of sex almost immediately.
