Large & Huge Volume Enemas
Than you for your comment. I'm so happy that I am not alone.
Like and Karma for you , not because the volume record , but for your precision , the logbook you made from your enemas ,
and the japanese link for inflatable toys you shared .
My recipe in a series is starting more than 3 qts of tepid water followed by one or more of 4+ qts. The frequency is a few days a week. My lifetime record is 6 qts, so far. Since I started recording the volume, I have taken more than 8.8 tons of water.
For me, 2 qts 105 deg solution (epsom salts or Ivory soap or baking soda, or plain water) is just comfortable. - after a clean out. Takes about 15 min to accept it, and 30 sec to release 2/3rd of it. Will do 3 qts, but beginning to feel stuffed. 4 qts is too much. although I've done it just to see if I could. The rest of the story: I'm a colon cancer survivor, and the surgeon removed half my colon. I've been in remission for 10+years.I try not to stretch the colon too much, the stitches, you know.
I'll just stop when I feel like having enough. That can vary from something like half the bag or the full bag (4 quart bag). Don't have any desire to try more :-)
I usually do two quarts hung high and fast. Ive onlt managed a fou qt once in my lifetime and i doubt i'll try again anytime soon.
I usually do two quarts of warm water for a clean out, either on my left side on the bed or standing by the shower. Once cleaned out, and if I am still in the mood, I set up the 4 quart Klistra red bag with its long hose and black plastic nozzles. When empty, I can easily handle 4 quarts, but have no interest in doing more than 4.
In my twenties I came across a few E-Z-EM barium enema kits during a hospital remodel job. They were out of date and in the trash pile. I took one of them home. I should have taken all of them but I wasn't thinking strategically.
I dumped out the powdered barium, rinsed the bag out thoroughly and added it to my meager collection of enema equipment. Even once in a while I would use the bag for my enema. As I recall, it was difficult to flush out all the air from the large diameter tube, so enemas from this bag weren't too comfortable. I blamed the partially air-filled hose for the discomfort when I couldn't finish the enema. Then, for some unknown reason, I decided to measure the volume of this vinyl enema bag. Much to my surprise I discovered that it didn't hold two liters like it was marked, but instead held three quarts. I'd been trying to take a three quart enema when my capacity was a little more than two.
A year or two later I made a conscious effort to take a three quart enema and was just barely successful at it. Leading up to it was the fact that my latex douche bag was slowly stretching out from use and its capacity had expanded to two and a half quarts of solution. I used a Foley catheter for that gut-stretching enema and I thought I would burst from the pressure.
In my mid thirties I bought a black Sherema four quart bag to try taking larger enemas. After years of practice it got so I could take the full four quarts. In 2006 four quart enemas were the rule, then I tapered off. Now my capacity is seldom tested, instead I opt for nice enemas, anywhere from three to three and a half quarts of solution. A good filling without the edge play of greater volume.
I normally do 3.5 to 4 quarts, but every now and then, when the situation feels right, I can take 5 quarts without too much discomfort, but those are few and far between.
I enjoy a 3-series enema with the last one containing 4 qts.
I usually start with 2 quarts, empty that out, then fill again, 4 quarts, then fill again and go for 4 quarts plus. If I can get 5 quarts, I feel great, I am trying to expand myself to take even more. I used to get much more every time, but now I have to work harder to get 5 quarts. If I keep this up, I hope to get 6 quarts by the end of the year. Stretching slowly each time.
I'm about half way into a 4.5 qt. bag as I write this. This is a twice weekly routine of mine for some time now. The first part is a little crampy but, once the fill has entered the ascending colon all is bliss. It takes about 15 minutes to complete the fill and I'll usually hold for about 15 more. The release is very rapid. I feel very envigorated once drained and usually try to get my wife in the sack thereafter. Otherwise, I put on some good porn and get my release. Some times I'll use my 40" x 34Fr. colon tube connected to the hand shower for a dynamic fill and simultaneous evacuation. I can usually work about 30"of it in. I like to alternate water temperatures from about 110f back down to 90f.
I take the 3 qt every week two times.
I started with the 2 qt bags, then got a 3qt and now I have a black open top 4 qt that I love. Waiting for the sites to get the x large double ballon nozzles back in stock. Sometimes I can take 4 qts other times I cant. I almost always lay on my back and the bag is about 4 feet above, I know everyone say "slow" but I enjoy a fast fill, and with the x large double ballon I don't leak.
William 2009 asks about 4 quart enemas. That is all that I ever do--nothing more, nothing less. I usually take about 15 minutes to empty the bag--if it gets much faster, it gets uncomfortable. I learned a long time ago that 2 quarts did not do much for me. I usually use regular water out of the cold water tap and 1 teaspoon of salt for each quart, although I have used water with ice floating in it or water at about 105F. I hold it for 15 minutes or so unless I am in a hurry.
I can always take 2-3 qts, and i stop there because it feels to crampy & painful.
To be able to take 4 qts, I find that first I need to have one (2-3 qts) just to clean out, and then I need to let the colon rest & relax or a while -- maybe even take a nap for an hour or two, or do something else. Then after the colon has relaxed, I can take up to 4 qts if the temp is about body-temp, and I do it slowly. While I may feel fairly full at 2.5 qts, and begin to get some cramping, I find that if I stop for a bit and then continue, I can take a full 4 qts even tho I felt quite full for a while. Often I'm surprised that the last few cups seem to go in more easily without pain or cramping than the prior qt, even tho I feel quite full.. At 4 qts I feel like a very inflated balloon.
Surprisingly, I find that a very short plug type nozzle works better than larger or any inflatable, because it seems to stimulate colonic contractions less. I don't believe I've ever felt comfortable enough to take 4 qts using any large or inflatable nozzle; the pressure seems worse with them.
In general, I always STOP if I feel any pain or cramping. While it's interesting to feel a full 4 qts going in, I don't think it's worth it to hurt yourself to achieve that goal.
Most people would not believe I take as much water as I do, but I take huge volumes and love every drop. Soothing is a good term to use. I don't get sick to my stomach, but I enjoy the fill.
Wow pretty sure my limit so far has been two quarts if that. I am not very patient though and tend to give up after a few cramps :(
3 quarts is my limit so far. Every time I take this, the next few days I feel so much better.
I also find slight strange strings of mucus come out of me.
I honestly think that beyond this, for me will be a struggle but needs to be done.
I'm going to work my way up to at least 4 quarts. When I push myself
to take more, my reaction tends to be a feeling like I had a workout. I even
sleep much better. Society is fell over due to except this as the norm.
As long as one feels fairly comfortable is it safe to try to take a 4 quart enema and hold it for a bit? Are there many who can take and hold a 4 quart enema and does water temperature affect the amount one can hold? Any help?
According to my experience there are a few factors which need to be considered as follows:
- Temperature should be a bit higher than body temperature: 38-39 Degree Celsius (100-102 Degree Fahrenheit)
- Position counts a lot: for me the knee-chest/knew-elbow works best, however, there are advices saying that you can (even should) change your position during receiving the enema
- Pressure: it should be able to deliver the liquid --> I hang the bag/can 1 m (3 feet) above the anus
- Flow rate: the best if you stop the flow many times. There is a professional saying that the best rate is 2-2.5 dl (1/4 quart) per minute
- One important thing: the solution should be something which does not cause electrolyte imbalance -- the simplest thing is the saline water (9 g salt/liter).
3 or 4 quarts will enough for me, sometimes i try for 4,5 q, but it is a lot of water..
I cant take much more than 2 qts. by myself, but can take almost twice the volume if it is GIVEN TO ME!! alone, I cant get past the cramps and bloating.....
My capacity seems to have shrunk from 3qts to about 2.5 qts. Is there a technique or some training regimen that will increase capacity? I read where many enema users claim that frequent enemas increase capacity.
There doesn't seem to be agreement on the best position for take a large enema. It is generally agreed that a slower fill will permit a larger volume.
I'd like to hear some opinions about this issue considering position, rate of flow, recipe, temperature, or any other factor deemed relevant.
I believe Colonics use considerably more than 2 quart fills, and do it REPEATEDLY. also read Christinea Amilong site about giving High Enemas.Jerry Knox is a licensed Chiropractor,and advocates filling the Colon to capasity, and slightly Distending it to get a good cleaning out. these recommendations arent a Hundred yrs old. if you arent comfortable taking large volumes,then dont. my point is that REAL old-fashioned enemas arent COMFORTABLE,nor are they SUPPOSED TO BE.....and you didnt have to go back to 1900 to get a 3H enema in the hospital,the 50s and 60s were full of them.bet there still used in other countrys today..........
Enemas of the past: I've read that in the past, around 1900, enemas were often much larger. There was a health movement back then that relied on enemas and was associated with Kelloggs & Kelloggs Corn Flakes (which were considered a health food back then.) Seems people went to health retreats, got enemas and ate Kelloggs Corn Flakes.
Anyway, the enemas used back then were more like 4 quarts.
Yes, Sears use to sell 3 quart enema bags. That does not mean they were safe. The fact that 3 quart bags are NOT commonly sold anymore implies that maybe somebody got injured and sued the manufacturer. So now, only 2 quart or less bags are commonly sold to the public. The only place you can get 3, 4 & 5 quart bags today is from specialty online stores.
Yes, it is obvious that a larger person might hold more water, and a smaller person less. And that it is a bad idea to try and force five pounds of stuff into a three pound bag. There is only so much stuff you can stuff in a stuffie.
I agree with you as far as some people trying to compete with each other,but I think that would be a very rare event.as far as backing up fecal matter into the small intestines, I dont think a novice would be able to withstand the cramps you get from completely filling the colon, much less Distending it!!! if you have done this before,you know what I mean!! I have just recieved two disks containing 40 out of print Nursing and Midwifeing books some dating back to the Civil war, and army nurse training books. when I download them, I will be happy to post anything I find on this subject.....as far as proving statments,NOBODY can, including you.but I use common sense, and get my info from professional sites, like the Radiology sites and Chiropractic info I used to prep for my BE.....
Yes manybags, it will be possible for some to take huge quantities. I don't believe that I said it wasn't possible.
What I did say was that for many who boast of their ability to take huge quantities it will be a boast which they cannot prove here - in other words this thread and others on the topic can turn into a competition, which is scarcely useful to the membership.
Of more concern however, as in the last line of my post, is that others may unwisely try to emulate or even exceed those stated achievements. There is danger there, in that in doing so they will throw caution to the wind and transfer faecal matter into the stomach and the upper digestive tract - hardly to be recommended!
Because Sears Roebuck (once) sold 3 qt or more equipment proves nothing - they didn't say that it was OK to make it 6 qts by refilling it, did they? Nor were the women who say that their nurses administered larger quantities necessarily correct - there is only their word for it.
It is, as you say, highly likely that a larger quantity of water will remove more faecal matter but the size/weight of an adult persons body is little to do with it. What is at issue is the size of a persons brain, the caution they exercise using that brain (and you may well have used caution) and the reason they are doing an enema at all. If it's simply to take part in a competition against an unknown competitor, whose veracity might be questionable, then it is most certainly undesirable.
Anything stated in this Forum, even by supposed professionals, should be viewed with caution and not with imitation.
well, Big K,up till when I joined this site,I too thought 2 qt enemas were the norm.I always had a fantasy about a Nurse giving me an enema,and having a hard time taking it.but some of the posts on here prompted me to look elsewhere, to Medical and Chiropractic sites, and I discovered that enemas before the 70s,were Much Larger than what passes for enemas today. the old SEARS ROBUCK catalogues PROVE IT. they feature 3 qt. or more Fountain Syringes.on other sites,women have posted that their nurses REFILLED the 2qt enema can a SECOND TIME during their prep enemas. since I read these posts, I experimented with volumes I was afraid to try before.I now can take 3qts, and get a much better cleansing than I ever got before!!! and my EX got almost 4qts into me repeatedly for the most INTENSE enemas I ever got...I'm only 5'8, 200lbs. if I can take that much, its possible bigger people can take those HUGE volumes..........
I have to agree with you Julie. It's not understood why some folks have to go to 3, 4, or 5 quarts or more; and, sometimes I'm not certain that I beleive their stories.......
I agree Hermann - it turns into a boasting competition, nothing more, with no proof available.
Of itself that wouldn't be so bad except that some would try to emulate it!
