Sorry for asking another dumb butt plug question...Overstretched anus?

Sep 6, 2006

Hi Dr. Bob... I have been visiting this site for quite some time now. I know this question has nothing to do with your discussion board and it is ridiculous but I don't know which expert to ask and I have checked the message boards for similar questions. A few days ago I bought a Large butt plug that was 2 1/4 inches at its widest point. I took the silicone or rubber plug out that is stuffed inside, thats another matter how I got it out in one piece...and squeezed the plug in my anus...which it expanded and got stuck. I had to yank it out because the air inside of me was plugging it in and by doing so I noticed my anus is slightly stretched and everything feels heavy back there. I had some blood and the inside is still red after almost 5 days. I have been practicing the keegal excercises because of the loosness back there. Will my anus shrink back to its original state? I don't think the sphincter muscles are damaged but I feel loose back there now and I have to clench it up back there when I stand up. Before my stupid attempt at self pleasure I was very tight in that area, I even had problems moving my bowels because of the tightness. Thanks for reading this and if you don't want to respond I would appreciate it if you could forward this to an expert. I will be making a donation to your fund.

"Two and one quarter inches????" OUCHAMAGOUCHA!!! Why didn't you just sit on a fire hydrant??? OK, never mind.

It is possible to overstretch the anal sphincter and cause damage. I really can't tell over the Internet whether you did any damage. If things don't feel right back there, you'll need to have a doctor take a look. Don't worry; what you did is not all that uncommon. At least you got your butt plug out. This is not always the case! If there is a problem with your backdoor, chances are it's very fixable. (Of course, the only perfect assholes I've seen lately are the ones currently running the country.)

Thank you for your donation ( Don't even think about attempting the fire hydrant, OK?
