Standard Brands

The standard enema apparatus available in the drug store can be divided into several types. There is the open-top fountain syringe, usable for enemas and douches. There is the closed-top type bag, which can also be used as a hot- water bottle. There is the four-way type, which also is intended to be used as an ice bag. Most of these units offer 2 quart capacity. If that is the limit of your capacity, the open-top fountain syringe is the best type to use, because it is very convenient. The enema and douche nozzles that come with these units leave much to be desired. There are also discreet type units sold primarily for feminine hygiene use, but some come with enema tips also. These are good because a woman can put them in her purse.

Shy - An expandable syringe that is filled by pressing the mouth of the bag against the sink faucet. This bag will hold 4 quarts. The big drawback is that it has no way to shut off the flow except to remove the bag from the tube, which will cause the water to flow from the rectum. What you need to do is to attach a hose with a clamp to the nozzle, which is inserted into the bag. You can pour liquid soap into the bag before filling with water.

Special Hardware

Here are some descriptions of exotic enema equipment you can build from commonly available items. The faucet enema is not for the inexperienced. If you don't have much enema experience, I suggest that you start with a standard 2-quart open-top fountain syringe from the local drug store. When you get <able to take 2 fillings of the bag at one time, then you are ready to get more exotic.

Actually, the equipment for the faucet enema is available at any hardware store. It is called a shower hose adapter for the bathtub faucet. It has a rubber fitting that fits over the bathtub faucet, a hose, and a rubber shower head. Attach the faucet fitting to the bathtub faucet, remove the shower head from the end of the hose, and you are ready. Set the faucets to a gentle flow, with a temperature that feels a little warm to the tongue. Sit on the edge of the tub, and ease the flowing hose against and then into your anus. You will feel the water filling your rectum. Relax the bowels as much as you can, and you don't need to worry about spilling a little water into the tub. When the bowels feel full, remove the hose and wait a moment. The feeling of pressure should pass, then insert again. When you are totally full, move to the toilet and expel the water. You can repeat the process as many times as you like.

Since the water is always running, you can move back and forth between the tub and toilet very quickly, and get a good cleaning out in about a half hour to 45 minutes. When the bowel is clean, take as much water as you can, and then enjoy the sexual release. When completely filled, don't miss looking at your distended belly in the mirror. You can also adapt a colon tube or other nozzle to the flexible hose on a personal shower head.

A few cautionary notes about the above procedure! The pressure from the water faucet is enough to burst the colon. Don't let the pressure rise too much in the bowel. When the pressure is strong, pull the tube out, or let the water pass out of your rectum. Don't take water that is too hot. Use some lubricant on the anus first, and after every few insertions. If you have a very large colon, or have heart disease, the water absorption can be deadly.

You must use water with salt in it to avoid "hyponatremic shock" - dilution of blood electrolyte.

A 4 quart enema jug can be made from a Rubbermaid 1 gallon orange-juice pitcher. Drill a hole near the bottom of the pitcher, insert an all-thread pipe nipple of about 3/8" size, and seal with nuts pressing on rubber washers sealed with RTV (bathtub caulk) or contact cement. Attach plastic tubing to exposed end of pipe nipple, held with hose clamp, and sealed with same sealant. You will have to make or order a large diameter enema nozzle or colon tube, although the end of the plastic tube can be smoothed off and used just like that.

A 4 quart bag can be made from a Faultless brand ice bag. Drill a hole in the center of the plastic cap, and adapt as above with the pipe nipple, etc. Get an 8-32 Eye Bolt with machine screw threads, 2 8-32 fender washers as large as available, and 2 8-32 nuts. Poke a hole in the center of the end of the bag opposite the filling mouth just big enough to take the eye bolt. Screw one nut onto the eye
bolt. Place a washer on the eye bolt. Put contact cement onto the washer facing away from the ring end. Push into the bag from the outside. Coat the other washer with contact cement, and place over the exposed end of the eye bolt inside the bag. Screw the other nut on to hold the bag between the two washers. This should provide a leak-proof hanging hook for the bag. Glop some contact cement on the inside washer and nut to prevent rust. Voila! A 4-quart enema bag!

Nozzles and tubes

There are many different types of nozzles and tubes available for inserting into the rectum. What you want is either a colon tube (a rubber tube from ¼" to ½" diameter and anywhere from 10" to 3 feet long) or a nozzle with a bulb on the end, to help you hold it in. These are called "N-Tips". Some of the best drug stores carry these items, but you will have to ask for them. Some drug stores also carry the fleet high-volume bag enema or an equivalent brand, these are made of plastic and will not deteriorate when oils are used, as a rubber bag will. The "high-volume bag" usually holds 2500 CC (over 2 quarts) but in the same series, the manufacturers make a barium enema container which can be ordered, and it has 3500 cc capacity (almost 4 quarts). Medical and ostomy stores carry many of these items. These are considered disposable, but with a little care they will last a long time.

The Colon Tube

A colon tube is a straight tube with a rounded end, and usually a small hole in the side near the tip. They come in many sizes, and are usually measured in "French" sizes. 28 French is a small tube, and 36 is fairly large.

The N-tip

The is really made to help patients hold a barium enema, but many people use them for other enemas. It is made of molded plastic. The typical balloon retention catheter has a rubber balloon (they usually come in 50 and 100 cc sizes) near the end of what would otherwise be an ordinary colon tube. When the balloon in inflated with air from a bulb, it makes it impossible for the tube or the solution to come out until the balloon is deflated. These tubes are nearly always made of gum latex, and you must be sure not to use Vaseline or oil on them. Lately, some people have had severe allergic reactions to certain types of tubes, and some models have been taken off the market. It's probably rare, however. In Great Britain one style of this tube is called a "Warneke Barium" tube.

What's Your Bag??

In search of the perfect piping for that special derriere in your life? When it comes to colonic crafts, Arthur Hamilton has the final word. His low-key mail order service offers such hard to find items as coloured rubber tubing (amber, red or black, at about $2 dollars a foot) and the much-sought-after European, double-bardex inflatable enema nozzle ( about $120). The personable proprietor is equally at ease with experienced enthusiasts and the newly enema curious.
