Have heard tell of using air as an enema. You put a plug in the rectum and pump air into to bowels. Just wanted to get others opinions of this type of enema.
I think air enema and water enema are two different things. Water enema is well known to all of us. But air enema is special, both in a positive and a negative way. The air gives my a feeling of fullness in the colon after an amount of 1 - 1½ liter of air. I can still lay in bed and just farting instead of going to the toilet. But not all air comes out after 5 - 10 minutes. It might be a little crampy, even though you try to get the air out. If the colon is (almost) empty, the air gets out easier.
At age nine after being in the hospital 14 days and receive 9 enemas after an emergency appendectomy, I went from an enema hater to an enema lover. As a result I craved enemas. Every few weeks, about 3 times a month, I'd convince my mother I was constipated by spending long periods in the bathroom and telling her that I had been unable to go or only expelled small pieces, which usually resulted in me receiving what I desired, a soapsuds enema followed by a rinse enema.
However there were occasions when she said you've only had the problem a day or two which is a short time so if it continues for another couple of days I'll take care of it for you. Top speed the process along the next day I'd take a 2-oz bulb syringe, which was actually a monolithic ear syringe and inject three to five bulbs of air into myself, then "pass gas" several times in the vicinity of my mother. She'd tell me to go to the toilet and try to go again so I go in and again inject another three to five bulbs of air and go out and tell that I only was able to pass gas and resume "passing gas" in her vicinity. It wouldn't take long until she would call be to the bathroom and there would be a warm soapy enema waiting for me.
Most of the time I would still have some air inside of me so it wouldn't take much enema for cramping to begin, though I'd struggle to try to take half the bag, usually after the first cramp complaint she's slow the flow way down, and when I could see the bag was about half empty, I'd complain enough that she'd stop and let me go to the toilet, as I did she'd mention that we'd need to start over and refill the bag. I could usually use the cramping to have the bag refilled a third time, then would come the rinse.
Have tried both prefer high hot and fast. only have done solo.
I have heard that forcing air into the anus or vagina could possibly cause an embolism. Personally, I like the feel of hot water .
I've enjoyed air enemas since I was a child and still do. I usually take about 2 or 3 qts of water and then inject air with a squeeze bulb. I like to feel the bubbles going in.
Hey guys, I'm glad you appreciate the innovative ways we had to use to deal with our teachers back in high school. But to tell the truth that was just the beginning. But we always played it on the safe side with the amount of air and how hard we blew into each other. There was the time at the dance, the football game and who can forget the church confessional.
For all the applause you just gave me, I should bend over and take a bow but I fear I may blow a hole in the wall behind me if I do :))))))
Air enemas were very popular in Thialand a few years ago. It was a fad among teenaged males . Bicycle pumps and aquarium pumps wer used at first which was probably ok. Then it progressed to pumps with higher pressure, very dangerous ! I I think there were a number of ruptured colons. Be careful out there.
Compressed air?? No wonder it resulted in a separated colon.
Other injuries are caused to the girls by falling at high speed with legs spread while water skiing. Guys falling butt first can do damage.
And there is a jet outfit that lets you fly above water. It has a seat to protect rectum from a 30 foot fall if the pump breaks. Falling when you are over the pump (which has a 200hp motor) is another unpleasant prob.
Life is full of lurking hazards besides football and sky diving
You can't even come close to comparing a shower hose enema with a gas station compressed air line. One does a gallon a minute while the other does cubic feet per second. Playing with a high pressure/high volume air compressor is just stupid.
I would personally proceed very cautiously in this regard, One of the workers at my local auto service station was 'goosed' by a co-worker with an air hose .as a prank .. the pressure separated the colon from his anus and he nearly died. The colon is very sensitive to pressure, as I am sure some of you know...play safe out there ...
Your story has to the funniest I have read in ages.
I have always loved the feeling of the air in the tube mixing with the water as it rushed into my ass. So I connected an aquarium pump to an basketball/football inflator and inserted that into the tube near the nozzle. I like to use the douche tube that comes with the drugstore enema kits. It's like putting an alkaseltzer in your ass. Feels great, constant fizzing as the water and air flow in.
The often use CO2 instead of air with a virtual colonoscopy because it is more rapidly absorbed and expelled from the body than air which is 80% nitrogen. Instead of having to fart it all out, you exhale it.
I recently had a colonscopy (awake) where they use CO2 rather than air, as they said it was absorbed more rapidly. I felt that it was--little farting, but I still had the pleasure of being inflated.
I had a virtual colonoscopy about a year ago. It's supposed to be "easier" than a regular colonoscopy but I've had 4 regular colonoscopies and will not opt for virtual again if I can help it. Anyway, prep is similar tho, the last thing you take coats the inside of your colon and makes it more visible in the MRI. The procedure was done by a tech, not a radiologist. I went into the room where the MRI was. The tech was a young woman. She explained the procedure to me. I had to get on the table on my left side. She covered me with a sheet and told me to pull my pants and underwear down to my knees. She then lifted up the sheet, parted my ass cheeks, and inserted a very well lubed finger into my anus and rectum. She then inserted the tube into my rectum. It had small balloon end. Once it was in, she inflated the balloon so it wouldn't come out and then began to.inflate my rectum and colon. It was an air retention enema. It wouldn't have been that bad if I could have stayed on my left side or back but I had to roll.on my stomach. There was a lot of pressure and I was quite uncomfortable.
These were very popular in Thailand some years ago, especially among teenaged boys. They were usually given with bicycle pumps. These boys were called "Pumpers ". Then some moved on to mechanical/ higher pressure pumps. This was a very bad idea, and a number of ruptured colons resulted. So remember Boys and Girls, low pressure, and moderation in all things.
It's not that hard to get a distended belly - even just a quart or two will show on a lot of people. The intestines may be fragile, but they are meant to hold things, after all. The pressure inside when even fully distended is probably nowhere near that which would cause injury. And air is used during colonoscopies, without any issue.
Too crampy for me, but I loved Fatass Bob's high school stunt. I about fell over laughing.
I have tears running down my face I'm laughing so hard! Your description is hysterical!
And you two were instant heros. Love it!
"with a blast that sounded like a moose getting hit by a car"- HA HA HA HA .... "It was like in stereo and lasted well over 45 seconds" HA HA HA HA :) I'm picturing the situation in my mind and I'm laughing my butt off. Haven't read something so funny in a while!!!
On the other hand, I guess you two were lucky not to blow your guts off. There was an mortal accident years ago in a nearby factory: a few chaps had a lunch break and went off playing with an air compressor. They inserted the hose in ones butt and pumped him up. The guy died a few days later (I don't know what kind of injuries he sustained). I know you can not blow air that hard as an compressor can, but if you two had distended bellies, you were trying pretty hard - IMO too hard, intestines are delicate structures. Glad you were OK.
I remember in highschool there was this teacher who always send me and my best friend to detention. One day we got together in a toilet stall and inserted the 30 inch colon tube fully into each others rectum and pulled it out while blowing hard on the other end. Our bellies were so distended we had to loosen our belts. We tried desperately to hold in all that air and went to class ready to have a blow out. When the prick of a teacher decided to pick on us for being a minute late and grabbed my friend by the shirt collar, at that moment he let loose with a blast that sounded like a moose getting hit by a car and immediately I took that as a cue to let go my self. It was like in stereo and lasted well over 45 seconds. The teacher thought we were both possessed and sent us to the principals office where we had to sort of try to explain what happened. We became instant heroes and the talk of the entire school. To this date nobody figured out what we did. We blamed it on the cafeteria food.
I tried it once just by blowing into an enema tube inserted into me, and it felt nice but I got full quickly. I think I'd miss the weight of a large water enema inside me if I only did air.
I have tried just and air enema, but I have found I like it better when I have a water enema in me and then use a higginsons syringe to add air.
I use a bulb to fill up with air. Same feeling as water, a lot faster and same feeling when expelling. I still prefer water but air is a good substitute.
So basicly it is better to do one then the other. :P Each to there own but me personaly, i love air enemas!!!!
It depends what you want. If you do the water enema first, your air enema will do in and out very smoothly because the colon is empty.
If you want gurgling and or cramps, do the air enema first, hold it, then do the water enema.
Is it better do do an air enema before or after a water enema? If after, should you hold all/some/none of the water in?
I love air enemas. I usually fill up with 1-1.5 qts of water and then fill my self up with air until I can't take any more. I love that "full" feeling.
Fill an enema bag with air and squeeze it all into yourself.
You will have a known volume of air.
Using pumps can be dangerous if you don't pay attention to how it feels going in.
Aquarian pumps are OK because they are low pressure and low volume pumps.
Compressors are dangerous because they are high volume and very high pressure--up to 100 psi--enough to blow out your colon in less than a second. Have a ride ready for the ER because you'll need it if you don't die on the way there.
How much is safe to take and how do you measure?
