Not safe: No. Destroying your natural rectal and colon environment leads to increasing risk or more dangerous infections or bacteria. Frequent douching increases HIV risks.

What other methods could be used to clean the anus before anal sex? Would using an ear syringe be safer than douching or still no?
Enema: An over the counter enema with electrolytes (i.e Fleet's) would be safest way to clean yourself. A syringe would probably not give you enough volume to clear residual stool from the rectum. Of course, understand that enemas are not required for your health but are relatively safe to use to increase your and your partner's enjoyment of sex. Also, take good care of yourself and practice safe sex. ...Read more
Yes: Chemical proctitis from toxins not meant to be introduced there; anal fissures from traumatic insertion leading to infections; herpes and other severe infections from unclean equipment--just a few of the things I can think of.

N.F.L.: Trying to remove that rectal 'football'? Well, enemas will initially work, but 'not for long'. Once the moisture is taken out of feces you will continue to play 'hardball'. Drink plenty of fluids, eat fiber rich foods, and have a first meal of the day evacuation plan that keeps the rectum from being a 'storage silo' for long periods of time will provide long term results. ...Read more

Water enema is safe.: Feel free to use a water enema to clean yourself before being intimate. Some people evacuate completely after each bowel movement and do not have any issue with "cleanliness" during anal sex. Other people may need the help of an enema beforehand.

I'm having internal anal wart outbreak. I can see blood on toilet paper when I wipe. Can I use diluted Dettols to douche to disinfect? Is it harmful?
Anal warts: There are many possible causes of the symptoms you note, which include warts, but also other things. Topical treatment is generally not recommended in this setting due to the risk of more serious diseases like cancer or a cancer pre-cursor.

Is summer eve's vag wash safe? NOt the douche, just Use for external washing, gel like texture, like body wash.
But it's unnecessary: The external only product is probably safe. But it's also not necessary. A warm wash w/ the same item you use all over yourself is enough. If you really have an odor that is bad - it's a reason for an OBGYN exam - not a cover-up. If there's an infection - you need to cure it, not hide it. But yes, use is okay if you're healthy otherwise. ...Read more
