How is anal even possible?

    I just don't understand how anal sex is physically possible, especially when it comes to oversized penises or toys. Don't get me wrong, I understand that it's all quite possible, somewhow. But what exactly happens when an 8" or 9" or 12" object is inserted into one's 5" rectum? Where does it go?

    To better illustrate my confusion, here's an image of the rectum taken from wikipedia (rectum is colored red)...

    Retto%28anatomia%29.png

    The rectum is tiny! From what I read, an average of 5 inches long, at which point it makes a downward hairpin turn into the sigmoid colon. And yet every description of anal sex I can find explains that everything happens in the rectum. And every explanation of proper douching I can find, explains that only the rectum needs cleansing.

    So how in god's name are people shoving 10", semi-rigid dildos into their bums?? The only way this is possible is that the inserted parts/objects are venturing into people's intestines. But how? Is the sigmoid colon just flopping around inside of us, un-anchored, able to straighten out when needed? (not to mention stretch to accommodate girthy objects). Does it then return to its original hairpin-turn shape and to its original diameter? Is this rearranging/stretching of the colon dangerous?

    On a similar note: when one uses an anal douche, is the goal to clean out only the 5 inches of rectum? That's great for all those 5 inch penises out there, but does that mean there is more "stuff" lurking in that downward hairpin turn, waiting to be encountered by the 8" penis or the 10" toys? Should I be trying to irrigate the rectum and a good portion of the sigmoid colon??

    This all makes no sense to me. Does anybody have any idea what's actually happening in this mysterious and seemingly magical tunnel in which the laws of physics and biology don't seem to apply?

    Any help understanding this would be much appreciated.

    I can only speak for myself. And a late bloomer at that, who had sex with women. But then a good number of gay men have at some point in their lives.

    I thought the idea was yucky, and resisted doing it for 5 years after coming initially coming out. But I did read about it, "study" it if you will, since I am really fanatical about learning things. I hate ignorance. I figure I only have 1 life, want to experience as much as I legally can.

    I had tricked with this local DJ, at a club where I had done lighting and follow spotlight for drag shows. He was versatile, as I became, and he was a good bottom.

    He had a small dick. That I really liked, because it was "bite size", easy to handle and do lots of stuff with in my mouth.

    And I trusted him to be gentle with me. To stop if I said "STOP!" if I had pain from anal. And of course to also use a condom. I decided this was the guy who would pop my "cherry".

    And so he topped me. And it was great! Many men get pleasure from the stimulation that bottoming causes their prostates. Enough that it made me hard, and we took turns jerking me off while he fucked me. No less than 4 times that first night.

    Some guys have bad experiences the first time they bottom. Mine was great. I never became an exclusive power bottom, though, just another part of my sexual repertoire.

    As for your question about cleanliness, many men do douche beforehand. And I have the stuff for it. It's another reason I use a condom, besides safe sex. I don't want sh*t all over my dick.

    The rectum as very wide and not 5 inches deep but between 7-9 inches. To get more than those limits all the way in their needs to be some straighting if your lower intestines which is all about positioning. The plain fact is though that despite porn, most men can't handle 10 inch plus for many reasons and many so called well hung guys end up as default bottoms. It apparently takes lots of patience and experience to handle 10 plus or having the guy never insert all the way I suppose. I have never bottomed for those 10 plus guys so my advice is from reading and asking guys who say they have bottomed for a 10 plus inch cock

    I am in no way an expert (at best, I consider myself falling in that "Versatile/Top" category that people have come up with) but I will try to help you in whatever small way I can.

    closetfella said(...) what exactly happens when an 8" or 9" or 12" object is inserted into one's 5" rectum? Where does it go?

    It goes into the rectum. Yes, even those ginormous, artillery-piece-sized ones. You can look up videos all over Pornhub and Xvideos or similar, but guys who are "too big" often end up not fitting their whole dicks into bottoms simply because they can't. (It also makes their video performances sad to look at, and even amusing. But I digress.)

    closetfella saidSo how (...) are people shoving 10", semi-rigid dildos into their bums?? The only way this is possible is that the inserted parts/objects are venturing into people's intestines. But how? Is the sigmoid colon just flopping around inside of us, un-anchored, able to straighten out when needed? (not to mention stretch to accommodate girthy objects). Does it then return to its original hairpin-turn shape and to its original diameter? Is this rearranging/stretching of the colon dangerous?

Should I be trying to irrigate the rectum and a good portion of the sigmoid colon??

    In order... (questions were underlined for easier text reading)
    #1 - With lube.
    #2 - Lots and lots of lube.
    #3 - It CAN become de-anchored (enjoy your new nightmare fuel) through heavy trauma, and it isn't by any means a pretty sight; it also becomes a source of great discomfort. Hemorrhoids are also a possible scenario. Which is why the really good "tops", or anyone else that tops in anal sex, are the ones who know how to shove their dicks into a bottom to help them also achieve pleasure without hurting or injuring them, instead of just indulging in self-appreciation of their phallus with little-to-none technique.
    #4 - Usually, yes. It happens when you go to the bathroom, but in most cases, on a much smaller scale. Unless you have abnormal bowel movements, in which case you should see a doctor as soon as possible.
    #5 - As with everything in life, the answer to that question depends on frequency and intensity of use: even "Hungry" bottoms don't go sitting on "ginormous" cocks or dildos multiple times a day, every day, every week. No matter what they say (if they do make that claim, chalk it up to Propaganda and Publicity). Presuming normal conditions and good health, the body returns to the state of homeostasis if allowed time to recover.
    #6 - Yes. Our intestines are populated by bacteria, and this is actually a good thing. Douching anything beyond the rectum would risk eliminating said bacteria, and that only opens up more problems than fixes them.
    #7 - This goes a bit into the advice field, but do remember that sex too is a two-way road: you are already allowing yourself to have another man "top" you. You don't have to make each and every effort for the guy. Also, if doing safe sex, then remember condoms are expendable. Just pack a bunch of them and discard as they are used and wasted.



    Hope it helps in some way! But I do recommend visiting a proctologist (it's the doctor who fingers men when he diagnoses them; can't miss him) and having a long conversation with him. He'll be able to help way more than I or probably anyone else here can.

    Science behind sex will always be complicated, and the question of "will it fit in my/your ass" well..... some make it happen, just takes time and a lot of practice. The intestines are supposedly miles long if stretched out, so riding a cock bigger than 5 inches just means it's going deeper, or being stretched in that area. All I know is, anal is fun with the right size up there.

    I think the term for rectum length is 'average of 5inches". Try with a small dildo/toy and see what u can take... personally I prefer smaller coz then I don't lose my erection. Pain is not the reason I do anything!!! Enjoy whatever size cock u can whenever u can..
