    Can you use a shower hose as an anal douche?

    I have a worrying suspicion that you may mean you’re taking the head off the shower hose and inserting it to use it as an anal douche?


    Question for JulieQuestion:

    My partner and I are into anal fisting and use the shower hose to make sure we are clean. Is this safe or are there easier cleaning options?

    I have a worrying suspicion that you may mean you're taking the head off the shower hose and inserting it to use it as an anal douche? If this is the case, then my answer is no, I don't consider it safe or advisable. I'll explain.

    First of all the hose end is likely to have some sharp edges, whether it's made of metal or plastic, plus it won't be sterile - so you risk damaging the delicate tissue of the rectum, and possibly introducing infection. There are purpose built attachments for a shower hose, to use as a douche, but I would still advise extreme caution, as when you turn the tap on, it's hard to gauge the pressure and quantity of the water you're filling yourself up with - or that the temperature stays steady and safe - ie. warm, not hot.

    Anal Douche
Personally, I feel that a balanced diet with lots of fibre, together with drinking plenty of water every day, should ensure that nature takes care of things. If everything is working properly and efficiently, then our bodies naturally want to get rid of waste rather than carry it around. However if you are keen on douching, then the simple rubber bulb type of anal douche with a rounded end is probably a safer bet, as you are then in more control.

    As with any kit used for anal play, it should be cleaned with antibacterial soap between uses, and allowed to dry naturally. Only ever use plain warm water, and ideally allow a good hour or more for your body to fully clear itself. Finally, it sounds as though you and your partner are experienced in fisting, so I won't start discussing it here, other than to give the usual warning to use extreme care, as it obviously carries potential dangers.
