I mentioned previously that it took me until August 2016 to take the plunge into doing my very first enema.
But when I finally did, there were a few things that caught me by surprise, that I wish someone had warned me about before I began.
But thanks to our squeamishness about discussion such topics, I didn’t know, so I’m going to save you from the same experience.
Lesson #1 – It can take AGES to get the liquid flowing
Firstly, it took me absolutely freaking AGES to get the water flowing from my enema kit.
I think I must have spent a good 15 minutes trying to get it working.
I thought I must be doing something wrong, and I started getting really frustrated.
Eventually I found the right angle and depth for the enema tip, and things went a bit more smoothly from there.
So, when you do your very first enema, give yourself plenty of time, and don’t worry if it takes a while to get things flowing.
Just keep moving your legs around, and change the angle and depth of the tip until it starts working.
Lesson #2 – It can be really hard to hold on
Secondly, it can be really hard to retain the fluid for any decent period of time, especially if you haven’t had a recent bowel movement.
This was something my partner struggled with, and he started getting quite frustrated that he couldn’t seem to hold it for very long.
We discovered two tricks to help with this.
Firstly, we now use a cleansing water enema first, to make space for the coffee enema.
And secondly, we just accepted that any amount of time was better than none.
And as it turns out, with practice, it gets easier to retain it for the full 15 minutes.
Lesson #3 – You might feel some odd emotions
Finally, I was really taken aback by my emotional responses to doing coffee enemas.
After my very first one, I spent the rest of the morning feeling the urge to call out “I love you” to my partner, roughly every 60 minutes, which was totally bizarre (but fun).
And since then, we’ve both experienced all kinds of different emotions after our enemas, ranging from deep sadness, to anger, to bliss, to uncontrollable laughter.
So don’t be surprised if you have some unexpected emotions, but also don’t be surprised if you don’t.
