You have to plan for contingencies every daySome men have written to tell me that they're also trying to live plugged or plug long-term, and in the discussions I've had with those men I decided to relate how living plugged 24/7 does require planning for contingencies every day.
Better planning would have been to put a soaking wet paper towel along with some coconut oil in a small plastic bag, but the principle is the same.
When we go to the movies, of course, I have extra time at home to do an enema and make sure my rectum is nice and clean before heading out for the evening. While I sit all day at my computer, the reclining seats in the theater often force the ring base of the plug further into my rectum than my desk chair does at home, and I have learned that when I suddenly feel a bit of discomfort, as if I have to evacuate that it is usually nothing more than the top arc of the ring sliding deeper into my rectum and causing the sphincter to open. In such a case, I keep my belt a little looser and can slip my hand into the back of my pants, take hold of the ring base and pull it out just a little. And yes, I have had to do cleanup in the theater restrooms at one time or another, but usually its the same as the grocery store experience.
This is important to note. It is not a good idea when going out for the evening our out in public for more than two or three hours to use too much lube. This is what causes the ring base to go into the sphincter too easily. In my case, the dryer the plug the better. The thing about glass and steel plugs, over the silicon plugs is that I can get by with a dry hole and feel no discomfort whatsoever.
Further staying plugged as I have coming up on eighteen months is that I get to know what each kind of feeling means, and if I feel a roiling in my stomach and an enema still leaves me feeling "vulnerable" to an incident, I simply leave the plug out for two or three hours. This allows the rectum to adjust. If I have to have a BM, then I just wait until it is time. If I have had an inefficient enema and I know my rectum is not really clean, then I wait until it is. The rectum doesn't carry poop in it like a storage compartment. It stays clean most of the time, until the digestion is complete and it's time to evacuate.
Some guys have been reluctant to monitor their bowel habits or to prevent "the runs" for example by making sure that the food they eat will not contribute to that condition. In my case (after some research) I discovered that in my case I need to slow down digestion by taking Imodium every day. This ensures a good firm BM in the mornings, and if I have a clean one and the toilet paper comes away clean, then I know I can simply re-insert the plug after a morning BM and go well into the afternoon before any maintenance is required.
