It’s Time to Simplify Your Bottoming Preparation Routine

  • Less is more — less volume and fewer rinse cycles

  • The rectum is generally 12” deep and does not house any poop 

  • Using too much solution (of any kind) or with too much force will deliver it all the way into the sigmoid colon, where poop is stored

  • Unless you have the urge to go, poop (generally) should not be present in the rectum

What if I told you that simplifying your bottoming preparation routine could be as easy as reducing the amount of liquid you use to cleanse yourself? That’s right — school never taught us the proper way to prepare or even to prepare at all, which means you might be doing more work than you have to.

My motto is less is more, which is why we created the Future Method Cleansing Solution to help simplify your pre-fun regimen. Most bulbs on the market have an 18-inch nozzle and are capable of holding 7 or more fluid ounces. To give you a better idea of our anatomy, the rectum is generally 12 inches deep and the average D is 6 inches long, which means hooking up will never affect the parts of the rectum where poop is actually stored. Though it’s not uncommon for a small amount of fecal residue to be present in the rectum, a quick rinse from an isotonic solution is really all you need. unless you’re into deeper (or larger) play.  

The idea that you are only ready when the expulsion runs clear is smart — don’t get me wrong. However, by using 7+ fluid ounces of water in one squeeze allows liquid to go too far beyond the inside neck of your rectum into the sigmoid colon where poop is stored–ultimately causing your expulsion to not run clear.

 Think of it this way: preparing to bottom is just like using mouthwash — just enough to fill your mouth but not so much that you’re bursting at the seams. #LessIsMore
