It’s not uncommon for closeted gay men to douche before sex. The practice is a great way to make sure that they’ve cleaned their asses well enough to prevent any stool traces from sticking to the rectum and anus during sex. But there is also a risk that the practice could cause HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
If your friend is a member of a gay community, it’s likely that he or she douches regularly. However, this should not be a sign that he is gay. It’s possible that he does it because the community has taught him that this is the proper thing to do.
There are plenty of products on the market that claim to be better than traditional shower douches. These can be very effective, but they can be expensive. Luckily, there are also some cheaper alternatives that can be just as effective — such as psyllium husks.
Some people use these dietary supplements to help keep their asses clean before sex. Nevertheless, they should always be careful and follow the instructions on the label. Many douche solutions on the market are home-made or noncommercial, and they may contain ingredients that can damage the anus or rectal lining. This is especially true when using homemade or noncommercial douching solutions involving vinegar. In addition, douches can be difficult to clean properly. It’s best to use one about 20 or 30 minutes before sex, and then to flush it afterwards.
