What is douching? Getting yourself ready for anal sex

Simply put, ‘douching’ is rinsing your ass with water so it’s free of waste matter before you have sex.

For many gay men, getting a ‘sexual home run’ means anal sex with your partner. But before you attempt to go any further, it’s worth thinking about preparation.

Anal sex can feel like an incredibly invasive way to be intimate, and for obvious reasons, it’s not as simple as just sticking it in.

Sometimes you can, and everything will be fine, but other times your parts will come back out covered in things you’d rather not share publicly with your partner.

The good news is there’s a way to remedy the awkward reality of anal sex.

Welcome to the art of douching. Although, it’s not really an art, it’s pretty simple, rather quick and really something you and your partner should be doing. 

Otherwise, accidents can happen.

We all know that the ass isn’t just for getting f**ked in, it’s for waste removal too. Keep wet wipes by your bed in case of emergencies, but before you get down to it…

Why should I douche?

For some of you guys, douching may only occasionally be necessary before sex – but that’s if you have a super-healthy diet full of fibre (grains, cereals, nuts, fruit, vegetables).

Essentially, guys with such a healthy gut are rare and most – to be safe – tend to douche just to make the sexual experience cleaner and more straightforward for both parties.

Fibre supplements can help with a cleaner gut longer-term, but douching is a more direct solution to getting your butt f**k-ready.
