Hi Folks, I've just joined this most interesting group.
Regarding soap suppositories or 'Soapsticks' I too was given these as a youngster to make me go to the toilet properly, especially when I was constipated. My mother would cut a piece of soap from a bar with a razor blade or sharp kitchen knife, shape it into a suppsitory size (about the size and length of the little finger or perhaps a tad smaller). I would be made to lie across her knees and the piece of soap would be pushed all the way up my bottom, as far as her finger would take it. Yes it did sting like hell and a lot depended on what brand of soap was use. The worst was that old fashioned 'Red Lifebuoy' (now difficult to source but is still available from some on-line suppliers) this really did sting, but made me open my bowels the quickest. Other stingers were, Green Palmolive, Ivory and Irish Spring and the old Wrights Coal Tar Soap, can anyone here remember that? I've had all of these up my bottom as some time or other.
I quite agree with the letter from 'Trentman' who states that many brands of bar soaps are now becomming difficult to purchase, as liquid shower gel type soaps seem to be taking over. Most shops that I use only seem to stock, Dove or Camay.
All those years later since receiving soapsticks, I still make them and enjoy their use and the sensations they give very much indeed. My wife also uses them to relieve constipation, and after inserting one she will sit in a hot bath for twenty minutes, until the soapstick kicks in.
My methods for making and shaping a soapstick are: I generally use a half-worn bar of soap. I allow this to stand in a dish of boiling water for at least 15/20 minutes. This should be adequate time to soften the soap enough to allow it to be cut and shaped into the desired size. If the soap bar is still hard, let it stand again in some fresh boiling water. Cut the bar lengthways into three strips, using a sharp serrated kitchen knife. Pat off any excess moisture using a towel. Then shape the length of soap into a suppository shape using a kitchen vegetable peeler. Any shreds from the soap can be saved and used as enema soap. It will disolve quickly and easily, making a nice soapy enema solution.
When the soap has been shaped into th desired length and shape, let it dry and keep it until ready to use. I generally make a good half-dozen soapsticks at a time. The soapstick can either be inserted dry or moisened in a little warm warm before insertion. Insert it into the anus gently pushing it in and out a few times, then push the soap right up into the rectum with you finger as far as the finger will take it. Squeezing the buttocks and sphinctal muscles hard together a few times after insertion will help carry it further up into the rectum where it will do you the world of good.
Hold for as long as possible and if this is to be used as a punishment, then the soapstick should be retained for a good hour, while your tormentor enjoys your discomfort. Afterwards enjoy a good relaxing bowel moement with absolutely no discomfort. Nutragenia soap is also very good, as it can easily be cut and shaped without difficulty, it contains plenty of glycerine, and will react just like a suppository purchased from a drugstore or chemist.
With a little imagination and care soapsticks can be made into all sorts of shapes and sizes and fun can most definately be had by the person inserting one or the recipient.
