With patience and a bucket of lube, you can work a beer can up there. Not that I would know.

Dear Girl,

My significant and I have really been getting into anal sex lately and it seems like we're always upping the bar in terms of the width of things that go in my backdoor. We're both having a great time, we're both consenting, blah, blah, blah, but I have a question. As the objects get wider, so does my, um, asshole. Will all that stretching screw up the muscles back there that keep things airtight? I've already noticed some short term loosening, but is there a possibility of blowing out my o-Ring permanently?

Here's a simple way to answer the question yourself, R.A. Have you ever had a particularly strenuous dump?  Things bounced back relatively quickly, yeah? The sphincter is comprised of muscle tissue. Yards of it. It can be torn, yes. It can be stretched, sure - - but it's not like a piece of elastic that only has a certain number of stretches before it snaps and you have to hold the entire operation together with a safety pin. There are ways to damage your ass during anal sex, for sure - - but that's more of a 'shoving yourself down on a broomstick until you bleed' thing than what you're doing.  Stretch to your heart's content! With patience and a bucket of lube, you can work a beer can up there, scot-free. Not that I would know.

I hate waxing - what can I say, I'm a crybaby. And forget laser removal - I'm convinced that 's a scam. So shaving it is, but no one likes razor bumps and I get them like crazy. Is there another method? Am I jumping the gun about laser removal? My cousin got it and she has to go back periodically even three years later.

Laser removal is, as far as I've ever heard, a repeat process into the ten thousands. Waxing is for masochists, and I'm just not that hardcore. There's always Nair and that ilk, but I can't stand the stink - - I don't care how much tropical frou-frou scent you pump into that stuff it still REEKS.

 

So weird, I was just talking about this with a friend the other day. In fact, I've probably given this exact advice to hundreds of girlfriends by now, and I'll swear by it until my pubic hair falls out of its own accord: fragrant free, roll-on deodorant for sensitive skin. Once, I had to ask a stripper friend of mine, who always had an impeccable beav (of course) (don't ask how I know that) "Kandie, how do you keep things so smooth down south? Do you wax?" I winced, waiting for her answer, and she said "Immediately after shaving, roll some deodorant all over the skin you've just shaved. It's a stripper secret." I'm not exactly sure why it works, but it does. Oh, and Kris? Don't get it inside Miss Slippery, of course, duh.
