Klismaphilia

By

Updated May 28, 2007

Definition:

Klismaphilia refers to getting sexual arousal or pleasure from enemas. Some people are aroused by the anal stimulation that is part of the procedure or by the practice itself (or both). Some people will have an orgasm as a result of an enema, and people engage in enema play alone and with partners.

While the infrequent use of enemas may pose little risk (depending on the procedure and the individual) frequent enemas are not considered necessary or healthy for the body.
