There are a number of precautions one must take to ensure a healthy butthole, none of which have included slathering it in Factor 15 – until now.

The emerging ‘wellness’ trend, which was introduced to many via Johnny Knoxville, who in-turn had learned about it through Instagram user Ra of Earth. According to which, just 30 seconds of anal tanning can provide more energy than an entire day in the sun. So clearly the cruising thots of Gran Canaria’s sand dunes can ditch their coffee entirely now.

Holistic health consultant Troy Casey also perpetuated the claims with bis own Instagram post:

When questioned about why he advocated the practice without knowing if there was research about it, Casey said “it’s natural and intuitive”. Well, it may be one’s intuition to lay on their back in a field and spread their legs, but what if you don’t live near Hampstead Heath?

Ra then posted a exert from the book Tao of Sexology, which under a title of ‘prevention of aging’, it writes:

“Sunlight has excellent germicidal qualities, and exposure to the sun will help keep the anal and vaginal area healthy and free of germs. It is also excellent for the treatment of hemorrhoids”.

According to Google, Tao translates as: the absolute principle underlying the universe, combining within itself the principles of yin and yang and signifying the way, or code of behaviour, that is in harmony with the natural order.

However, a sunburnt ring-piece does not seem natural to me.
