A Beginner’s Guide to Anal Douching
Enemas are used for a variety of reasons and in a number of settings - whether that's under the watchful eye of a medical professional, or your partner pre-sexual activity. Dr Mayoni Gooneratne, founder of The Clinic and a general surgeon, explains why you might want to use an enema for medical reasons.

It usually involves a tube and syringe containing the medicine that is then gently inserted into the anus.
