It’s the question that dare not speak its name. You’re sitting at home; you get a text from that guy you’re casually seeing. “Come over,” it says. He didn’t even include a winky emoticon this time, you think to yourself, while throwing on a sweater and fixing your hair. Then it hits you: how much should you prepare for this late-night rendezvous? You know… internally?
Preparing to bottom is an important part of gay sex, but it’s also a topic that no one really wants to discuss, for obvious reasons. Turns out, when you speak with folks who know their way around a man hole, there are pros and cons to most methods of self-cleaning.
All my friends I talked to about their downtown hygiene regimen said that they generally just shower before sex, if they do anything at all. “I’m always saying a little prayer,” confessed one friend. Is that really all that’s necessary? Lord knows, no one wants an incident in the bedroom, but opinions on how exactly to prevent such a sexual slip-up vary from person to person and it’s only the unusual top who wants to discuss the topic before taking the plunge.
So tell me, how many of you actually do douche before engaging in sex?
