How long am I good for after douching?

Unread postby HunnidK » 14 September 2020, 02:46

Hey everyone, I'm new to bottoming and I was wonder how long before a hookup I can douche and still be cleaned out? Is 2-3 hours too long?
Thank you in advance!

Douching is associated with a roughly 2x to 6x increased likelihood of contracting an STI, among other potential health problems. Doesn't seem like a great idea, especially for casual sex.

It also seems really gross, unpleasant, and completely unnecessary.

Your rectum has a self-cleaning mechanism that tends to work very well as long as your diet is good. That doesn't mean you'll be ready 100% of the time, but you should be ready the majority of the time, and you should be able to determine when you are or aren't.

Make sure you're eating a good varied diet with plenty of soluble and insoluble fibre of different kinds (ideally totalling the recommended 38 grams a day for men; build up to this gradually to let your body get used to it). A good breakfast cereal will have a decent amount of fibre (compare nutrition labels!) and you can mix it with All-Bran or something similar to increase your fibre intake. Always go for 100% wholegrain products (among cereal, bread, biscuits etc.) over refined grain. Choose high-cacao dark chocolate over milk chocolate and you can get some fibre from there as well. Plenty of fruits & veggies. Leave the skins on apples and potatoes etc.

Also, drink lots of water! DRINK it, don't put it in the other end :P

You can also try adding a special fibre supplement, such as Pure for Men, which is specifically meant to help you stay clean and ready to bottom and works very well in my experience if used consistently, once your body has had time to get used to it (at least combined with a good diet as mentioned above).

I have never felt the need to do anything like douching. :)

There's comfort in predictability.

The answer to your question is entirely dependent on your own diet and intestinal clock. Every person will be different.
