Roman showers 101

Puking hearts graffiti

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Vomiting is your body’s response to something you shouldn’t have eaten.

There is no risk-free way to induce vomiting.

Do not induce vomiting if you have any GI issues.
Stomach acid can cause damage. Roman showers are not a fetish you can indulge in every weekend.

One of the most common questions new people to the fetish have is how to empty their stomach when they want to play. These methods seem to be the most common proposed.

Fingers/Manual Gagging

The easiest to engage in by far, simply use a smooth object to rub the back of the throat causing gagging until it becomes productive.

Benefits

No equipment required. Nothing that might be poisonous or dangerous. You can stop vomiting when you want to. After one or two productive heaves your body may take over and produce natural nausea in response to the sight/taste/smell of vomit.

Drawbacks

Doesn’t work well for everyone. Doesn’t produce natural nausea which is a big part of things for some people. Can’t be combined with oral sex on a female.

Safety tips: Trim your fingernails well. Don’t use any hard objects or anything that might cause scrapes and cuts. Don’t use any objects that you may not be able to pull out or might get stuck.

Warm saltwater

Recommended by many medical texts, 8 ounces of saturated saline solution, warm, will act as an irritant causing rapid nausea and natural vomiting.

Benefits

Easily available, highly effective, minimal risks. Works rapidly

Drawbacks

Taste, may not work for all people

Safety tips: Make sure to maintain your electrolyte balance. Do not use if you have high blood pressure or fluid retention.

Mustard powder

An irritant that works much like saltwater, possibly more potent.
NOTE: Use mustard POWDER, not French’s Mustard, and combine with warm water.

Benefits

Rapid and reasonably sure. Produces natural vomiting.

Drawbacks

Taste.

Safety tips: May cause diarrhea, otherwise theoretically very safe.

Ipecac

Medical syrup that was used to induce vomiting in poisonings until its banning in the mid-2000s.

Benefits

Produces nice long buildup, feels much like a flu. Produces powerful vomiting session. Produces a second session of vomiting 15-30 minutes after the first, and potentially more. The second wave can come on very suddenly and be very potent. Most “natural” vomiting experience.

Drawbacks

May be toxic to the heart, can take a while to flush itself out of your system, resulting in multiple sessions of vomiting. While two is almost universal more is not unknown. Requires an evening set aside. May build up in the body if used too often. Very hard to get since being banned in the US and UK.

Safety tips: Don’t use too frequently. After the first session drink plenty of water to avoid dry heaves if you have to vomit again.

Hydrogen peroxide

Often recommended for veterinary use. Sometimes recommended for use on humans. Use ONLY LOW-CONCENTRATION drugstore H202 designed for cleaning wounds and cleaning your mouth. Higher concentrations used in industry (such as 35% Food grade or higher) or hair bleach could be fatal. Most drugstore peroxide is only 3%.

Benefits

Works much like ipecac, with a natural build-up, if a bit more rapid. Produces very powerful, natural vomiting.

Drawbacks

Taste, unknown safety.

Safety tips: Use only low-concentration, take with water. Safety in humans is unknown, but safe in animals.

Alcohol

Central Nervous System (CNS) effects and stomach irritant effects of alcohol commonly cause vomiting.

Benefits

Natural vomiting with buildup.

Drawbacks

Highly unpleasant. CNS depressant that could cause alcohol poisoning, coma, or death at levels required to reliably induce vomiting. There is no way to safely use alcohol as an emetic.

Safety tips: Not recommended for use.

Urine

Basically the same as salt water, with the added effect that knowledge of what it is might cause nausea. If the source is healthy it should be sterile. If someone is sensitive to the idea/taste it could be used to induce vomiting during oral sex with a woman… otherwise a challenging task.

Safety tips: Remember that urine is only completely sterile inside the body. Never store or keep it for long periods of time, and be careful of what containers you put it in.

A Penis

Works much like fingers with the problem of less articulation to “tickle” or probe and being much thicker around typically. The problem seems to be that it can be too thick to trigger the most sensitive areas likely to produce “productive” gagging.
Some people say one key is to pull back far enough that there is room to throw up, and video evidence seems to bear that out, most vomiting occurs after removal or pulling back some.
There is a panic tendency in some people that leads to pulling back as well.

All the same, applies to toys as well. Some smaller, thinner toys will be able to probe better than others. Experiment to see which ones work best for you. The good thing about toys is that positions are infinite.

Overconsumption

The classic “gallon challenge”! Milk is interesting in that it has enough electrolytes, fats and sugars in it that you wouldn’t risk water intoxication or throwing off your body’s balance. Disadvantage is a very vanilla puke, no pun intended. No chunks, just gushes of milk, probably cold milk.

You could virtually use a variety of different things. All dairy products are pretty popular, ice cream, yogurt, etc. Fruit is also fairly decent.

Muscle control

Some people have reported a very full stomach, leaning forward sharply and forcing a burp or relaxing the throat muscles allows for mechanical vomiting. Some people report it doesn’t work at all. Your Mileage May Vary.
