Enema

An enema is the procedure of introducing liquids into the bowel via the anus. Enemas can be carried out for medical reasons, as part of alternative therapies, and also for erotic purposes.

A barium enema[?] is used as a contrast substance in the radiological imaging of the bowel.

Enemas can be dangerous if administered incorrectly, so precautions should be taken to ensure the safety of the person being given the enema.

The paraphilia directed towards enemas is known as klismaphilia.
