Whether you are a gay, bisexual or straight, having anal sex is quite common. It’s important to practice clean, safe sex. There’s no need to take chances and hope that you or your partners rectum is clean. Instead, prepare in advance by douching.
There are a number of different kinds of anal douches available. Each one had a different purpose, depending on your situation. Learn about the different kinds of anal douche types and which one is best for you.
- Disposable: disposable douches are good if you are traveling. They are available at any drugstore or pharmacy. It’s important to know that most have ingredients that act like a laxative; avoid these specific kinds. Also, do not get vaginal douches; they are not the same as an anal douche. Disposable douches can be good if you are hooking up and need a quick touch-up.
- Bulb: This is the most common and preferred kind. The bulb can easily be filled with distilled, room temperature water, which is ideal. Some come with a variety of attachments for pleasure during cleaning.
- Hanging Kit: Typically a 2 litre bag that looks like a hot water bottle that hangs on the back of a door. This kind is less popular because it relies on gravity for water pressure.
- Shower Kit: These kits are becoming increasingly popular. They are permanently installed in the shower and use a valve to redirect water from the shower head to the hand-held wand. It’s important to control both water temperature and water pressure when using this type of device.
