External anal cleaning

First, let's talk about how to clean the outside around the anus.

This is relatively safe and easy to do. It is a good idea to thoroughly clean the anus before all types of anal sex, including finger sex, anal sex, and various invasive practices.

This is easiest to do in the shower and is a great way to prepare for anal sex, as warm water can help you relax.

  • Use mild, unscented soap and warm water to clean around the anus. If your hair is in this area, be sure to clean it thoroughly.
  • Rinse off all the soap.
  • You can also insert a greased finger into the anus to gently clean the lower part of the rectum to remove any traces of feces, but make sure there is no soap in the anus. However, as we will see later, this area is usually clean.
  • Dry your body thoroughly with a soft towel.

Keep enjoying your anal adventures!

Back door biology

Before discussing the pros and cons of flushing, here are some biological facts that can help you feel more confident and help you decide whether or not to flush.

The anus and rectum are connected to the sigmoid colon, which acts as a storage area for bowel movements. Stool is only released into the rectum when you are ready to go to the toilet. This means that, in most cases, the anus and rectum are empty. Feces will only enter this area when you go to the bathroom.

Given that the rectum and anus are between 5.5 and 8 inches in length, you have plenty of room in the rectum and anus for penetrative sex without entering the sigmoid colon (where poop is stored).

So, of course, there's really no need to rinse unless you want to!

It's like we were born to have anal sex!

Internal anal cleaning with a douche

Anal washing involves cleaning the rectum and anus with warm water, saline or special anal washing solution.

It's entirely up to you to decide whether or not to have an enema before anal sex, and there should be no pressure. If you plan to have anal sex, you should discuss your expectations and boundaries ahead of time, and this includes discussing your expectations for anal cleanliness and the possibility of poop.

In my personal opinion, anyone who has anal sex with me has to accept the possibility of having a bowel movement. The odds are low, but no matter how well you clean, it's always there. And if it does, you shouldn't be ashamed.
