Steps to follow:


Although you can have anal sex without necessarily having used an enema beforehand, these objects help avoid those unpleasant surprises that can arise during this type of sex. Although anal sex is highly pleasurable and exciting, it is very important to take some hygiene measures if you want to climax and enjoy it.


The enema is a kind of hollow pump that is filled with water to begin cleaning the rectal tract. The first recommendation is to use drinking water instead of tap water to avoid any lime or chlorine concentrations that can irritate the delicate anal area.


The water should be at a lukewarm temperature, which you can test with your hand. If it is too cold or too hot, it can hurt you and cause you some discomfort.


Fill the enema with the water once you've got the temperature right. Some enemas may come with several nozzles, thinner or thicker ones. The difference is that some extract the liquid quicker whilst others are slower.


It is very important to use a water-based intimate lubricant to insert the enema into the anus easier and hassle-free. Completely lubricate the enema nozzle and the anus a little too.


Choosing a comfortable position to insert the enema is very important because the idea is that you keep the fluid in your anus for at least a few minutes, so you can properly clean this hole so you can have anal sex comfortably.


You can choose any of the positions that you would normally use to have anal sex, just remember that if you want to lie down to insert the enema, put some plastic or a towel down to prevent water soaking the area.

It is essential to be relaxed when inserting the enema, making the whole process much easier. Insert the nozzle carefully and once inside, press and hold the enema pump to make sure the liquid doesn't go back into it. You have to retain the water for a few minutes and then sit on the toilet and push slightly to drain the fluid.


The whole cleaning process will not take more than 5 minutes, and it is a procedure that will ensure you have pleasurable anal sex and no surprises.
