Personal hygiene

Anal douches

  • An anal douche is often taken before of after passive anal sexual contact.
  • Be careful, because this is not without danger.
  • Don’t do this every day.  It may seriously disturb your intestinal flora.
  • Don’t use soap or chemicals.  This also disturbs the intestinal flora and it can damage the lining of the bowels and cause wounds. 
  • These wounds can provide an entrance for infections.
  • Rinse the anus only with lukewarm water (body temperature) and use a special bottle that you can buy at the chemist’s.
  • Never attach the tube to the tap, the pressure would be too high!
  • If you work in a club, never use an anal douche knob that can also be used by others.
