Klismaphilia came from the Greek words “kataklusmos” which means “flood” and “philos” which means “love”. It is a kind of paraphilia involving enemas or the introduction of liquids through the anus. The term was coined in 1973 by Joanne Denko, an American psychiatrist and author.

This may be a replacement or an auxiliary to the genital sexual activity. Some klismaphiles pretend to be constipated to get others to administer an enema. In this case, they conceal the sexual arousal which they get from the process. There are reportedly more men than women who derive pleasure from enemas; one probable factor is the ability of enemas to stimulate the prostate gland. Most klismaphiles keep this behavior a secret and continue to live normal lives.
