A year ago I felt bowel perforation symptoms for 2 days after using anal toys. My irksome bowels beg the question: did I really hurt my colon or anus?
?? Perforation??: If you had bowel perforation that went untreated you would not survive! If you scratched/scraped/cut some of the inner surfaces in your rectal area it obviously healed to some degree but may have left some scarred tissue. If you cut the muscles within the anus, it could cause a stricture or a difficult to close outlet. A simple rectal exam by your doc could provide better info & help you improve. ...Read more
Hi there. I have recently found out that I have a small inguinal hernia. Would that interfere if I used anal sex toys?

Can gonorrhoea spread by masterbating with sex toys by myself? I.e transferring the infection from my anus to my penis? I was treated 2 weeks ago
Very unlikely: If you have gonorrhea at one site, such as urethra (penis) or rectum, then you might self transmit to another site. The sex toy would have to go immediately from the infected site to the uninfected one, and would have to go inside (maybe difficult for the penis). But of course there is no risk of not already infected somewhere. Any such risk ended within a few hours of correct treatment. ...Read more
Every time after I masturbate I bleed little in the anus. I do not play with my anus at all. I just masturbate with my vagina using finger or a toy.
Anal sphincter: The muscle around the anus (sphincter) is probably being rubbed when you place your finger or toy inside the vagina. The vagina and anus are very close together and if there is a external hemorrhoid present, injury is even more likely. ...Read more

Possible scar: Hpv is transmitted sexually but should not have anything to do with the described scenario. Part of the question is missing but sounds like the area that was cut looks strange.

An examination by medical provider can easily determine if this is the case. ...Read more

No: It looks like albolene is a moisturizer/cleanser. You should use appropriate "personal" lubricants for toys or sex. For most toys (especially silicone ones), a water based lube is recommended.

Interactive: Toys that require some imagination and creativity are best at this age. Building blocks, toy cars and trucks, xylophones, etc are all great. You can even begin to give them paper and markers to practice scribbling. Play fun music in the background and let your child dance around the room. Allow them lots of unlimited time outdoors running around. Sing songs and read books together. ...Read more
