History section needed
article could have another section with this method of ingesting alcohol in history.
Pre-columbian Mayas ingested alcohol and other drugs via this method.
Mentioned in Jared Diamond's third chimpanzee, part of the discussion on Stotting etc. for sexual selection.

Needs better sourcing for the effects section
I get that this is apparently really a problem, but I'm not sure I buy the explanation that absorption through the colon somehow bypasses first-pass metabolism. I would really like to see this checked for WP:MEDRS compliance, because if true it would have HUGE implications for many types of drug delivery that I simply cannot believe have not been extensively exploited yet. —/Mendaliv/2¢/Δ's/ 03:33, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
I wouldn't call this an exploit. It would be just be more of an effect of physiology the G.I tract. And seeing how that the rectal area is a very commonly used option as a drug delivery route, along with the mouth, intravenous, intramuscular, etc, I'm sure that it's in the medical literature that they know the effects of it. Because if if it was a true exploit, alcohol enemas would be more commonplace in the media.
