You’ve been Preparing for Intimacy All Wrong

  • Tap water and store-bought enemas should not be used to prepare for bottoming.

  • Both can increase the possibility of contracting STI’s

  • Using an isotonic solution is an effective way to cleanse 

    When it comes to getting intimate, the majority of us believe we can never be too clean. But when it comes to your bum that isn’t entirely true. Preparing incorrectly before the fun starts can have real consequences. 

    Unfortunately, the absence of products made for us, plus the lack of proper education in our communities, means we’ve all been doing things wrong. Let me explain.

    Anatomy 101:

    There are two types of cells that line the inside of our behinds, and when we clean out, the mucous membrane is ultimately what’s affected. Typically, these cells do not come into contact with the outside world. So whenever they do (either before the fun starts or during), it creates reactions in the mucosa that have potentially negative consequences.

    Think about it…most of us have been preparing for intimacy with tap water or store-bought enemas, which typically deplete these cells of essential nutrients and overall ability to function. This can lead to micro cuts (cracking) or macro tears (fissures), which can increase the possibility of contracting STI’s and over time create additional issues.

    But I’ve always kept a close eye on the market and up until now, I could never recommend products, due to the fact that all the solutions had the aforementioned negative ramifications. Because bottoming is still considered taboo by most, unfortunately, nothing had been created for us. 

    Bottom Preparation Done Right

    Enter the first isotonic cleansing solution. The Future Method Cleansing Solution offers an effective, pH-balanced cleanse, while simultaneously helping soothe the applied area and promote a feeling of moisturized comfort. Developed by professionals, this formula is the first of its kind, offering a gentle, yet effective, cleanse, so you’re ready to bottom whenever you need it.

    But let’s pull it back a minute and make sure you’re aware of some key terms. Do you know the difference between cleansing and enemas?
