Were these purely for medical value, or was there eroticism behind their creation?

La Soubrette Officieuse by Swiss artist Alexandre Chaponnier (1753-1805)
Le Curieux by Pierre-Anroine Baudouin

This delicate watercolour by Baudouin (1723-1769) shows a maid about to giver her mistress an enema using a clyster syringe, which was the usual way of administering an enema from the 17th to the 19th centuries.


Tobacco enema

“Enemas were not just a medical solution to constipation and dehydration but were also used to quickly introduce drugs, both medical and recreational, into the system.  In the eighteenth century picture above, physicians administer a tobacco smoke enema.  This was not only used to treat stomach pain but also to revive victims of near drowning.”

Die gefürchtete kanüle (the dreaded needle) by Helga Bode
 Das Geduldige Opferlamm  (the willing sacrificial lamb) by Helga Bode
“Helga Bode was a German artist active in the nineteen twenties.  She specialised in spanking art (more of which another time) but also produced a lot of enema themed drawings and watercolours.  Some of her illustrations appeared in German medical books in the thirties but very little is known about her.”
Im Schlafsaal des Internats (in the boarding school dormitory) by Helga Bode
Klistierstunde im Pensionat (Clyster hour at boarding school) by Helga Bode
Bode didn’t miss the possibilities of the extra threat posed by a male protaganoist, however, and, as we can see by the two examples below, much of her art is about the anticipation rather than the act itself.
Peinlicher Befehl (the embarrasing instruction) by Helga Bode
Margit Gaal
You can see the transition from fear to happy expectation when going from Bode to Gaal’s work.

Eugene Reunier
“This one by artist Jim Black, again, has a reluctant looking victim at the mercy of two older women.  Black was one of the pseudonyms of French Artist Luc Lafnet (1889-1939)”
“This picture is by another illustrator of ninteen thirties French spanking novels, JX Dumoulin.  It is an illustration from a novel called Humiliations Chéries by Jean Claqueret, a pseudonym for an unknown French author.”
“This is an illustration from a novel by Sadie Blackeyes which was a pen name for French author and songwriter Pierre Dumarchey (1882-1970).  Dumarchey was the author of the novel Quai de Brumes which was made into a film by Marcel Carné in 1938.”
“This illustration by Richard Hegemann really piles it all on.  A man with bound wrists has sex with a woman who is tied to a chair.  She is receiving an enema whilst a woman in a see through slip and boots whips them whilst an excited little dog looks on.   Hegemann was probably actually a woman, active in Germany in the twenties.”

Anyone else out there want to see a second Efest West??

Curious about the interest level.

Cause we cannot reconnect with this topic too much!  It is of utmost importance to keep your equipment and supplies in clean, healthy, working order.  Some suggestions from an online group:

(Let us assume that we all agree it is safest that everyone have their own set of anything that is inserted or has direct body/orifice contact, including hoses/tubes. If you have backflow valves on your hose(s), your bag is likely okay.)


  • Make sure everything is well washed with soap or hand wash, then rinsed in hot water inside and out and then hung up and left to dry
  • Hot soap and water then blow everything out with an air compressor
  • Ocassionally, an extensive cleaning with a 10%+ bleach solution or similar disinfection and/or sterilization via boiling, autoclave, or the equivalent
  • A touch of ammonia as a disinfectant
  • For the nozzles, colon tubes & whatnot, the addition of using gentle brushes and pipe cleaners
  • Rinse everything inside and out with Peroxide and let air dry
  • A 22cal. rifle cleaning rod and clean patches.  A few passes of the patches dipped in bleach and soap water such as Spic and Span
  • Vinegar or bleach and water
  • Mouthwash to disinfect
  • Add a little baking soda in the water when cleaning.  This leaves an alkaline coating on the inside of the bag and tubing to help prevent the growth of bacteria and mildew and is not toxic
  • Soak supplies in tee tree oil or grapefruit seed extract as both ore antibacterial and antifungal

Ways to Expel

I am continually surprised with people’s creative and umm…interesting choices when it comes to enemas.  More recently, when considering options for expelling.  Here are just a few ideas I’ve seen:

  • Toilet – well, duh
  • Submerged in the bathtub – I’m a splosher, but really?
  • In a rubber or latex suit. The suit contains the enemas when released – squishy I imagine
  • While wearing chest high Hydroglove rubber waders – wow…I don’t have words…
  • Taking the drain cap off of the shower floor and just letting loose – I happen to know this works wonderfully
  • In bed, on a bedpan – I need to try this
  • Inflatable nozzles with two tubes. One for an intake and one with larger diameter for draining. The releasing hose is placed outside of your bath tub directly to your toilet – Interesting and intriguing both!


Some suggestions when utilizing a toilet (thanks to @MaxPrivate on fetlife):

  • Get your feet off the floor with a stool or put your heels on the front lip of the toilet seat while leaning forward
  • If the cramping is higher up, it is because you are increasing the kinks in your colon. In that case you want to sit bolt upright and even stick your bum out and arch your back and lean back to elongate and stretch your belly. When the cramp passes go back to elevating your knees and leaning forward
  • If you are cramping trying to get the stuff out of your ascending colon (a really high colonic cramp) then site up straight and turn your whole upper body (shoulders and rib cage) to the right as far as you can. You can go even further by pressing the heel of your right palm into the right side of your belly just under your ribs and then turn your upper body to the right. If the movement gets stuck again at some lower point go back to the other exercises above.




This question has come up a few times, so let us address it together.

I have heard people complain about nausea when taking or just after taking an enema and would like to venture a few guesses as to why this might be happening:

  • You ate recently and your belly is already full of undigested food
  • You are not using enough salt
  • You are filling up too quickly
  • You are filling up too much
  • Are you standing on your head? No really: I’ve done this and it did make me nauseated

Some suggestions:

  • Wait to take an enema until after you’ve had a natural bowl movement, post meal
  • 4-6 tsp salt per 2qt bag
  • Slow it down
  • Take a half bag, then a full bag: work yourself up slowly instead of out the gate
  • Stick with the Sims position and/or ensure your head is above your stomach level

Claims Dept…Maybe not.” –Christopher Moore
