Anal Bleaching.

I came across a website in work my last week that was talking about this. I thought "Oh, that's a funny piss-take on silly cosmetic procedures," and gave it no more attention.

When i got back to MN, i was casually reading a Harper's, when i found this little gem in the Harper's Index. "Average number of $75 anal bleachings that an L.A.-area salon performs each day: 5."

I nearly screamed in a high-pitched way (imagine the timber of teenage girls screaming Oh My Gawd!), but i managed to control myself. Instead, i reasoned, i'll just disturb the rest of you as well. Want to see a funny Craig's List post about it? Go here (though i suspect this person thinks it's a joke too).

Just doing my part to make my friend's list a more knowledgable lot.

Ah, it's all revealed in the Craig's List post. And it will haunt you for days ;)

"Finally"...hee hee...thanks for that (I think).

When you told me about it, I was horrified/fascinated enough...but then this sentence at the end of the Craig's List post...

"Striations in differing shades can add a natural "lived in" look, so that nobody ever suspects you had an anal cleansing and bleaching. Not even your children."

I think I just want to jump up and down screaming "What the fuck?" repeatedly until the world becomes somewhere I want to live in again...

Because your children will be examining your anus so closely?

Gah!

Exactly what I was thinking...also...should people who do this even be *allowed* to have kids? There's way too much chlorine in the gene pool already...;P

You know, I've done some pretty... non-standard things in the course of my lifetime. But never ever as a teenager was I even slightly interested in taking pictures of my (or any of my friends') anus. And you know, I *still* can't think of a pressing need for that. Or for... bleaching.

hmm I'm surprised by the level of surprise,
you guys do realize this is not a normal cosmetic alteration for average vain folks
this is mainly done in the nude modeling /porn business,
cos if you haven't been paying attention to yourselves you'd notice the shading differences between the nether regions and rest of skin on the average caucasian {and the fact this is often not the case in porn stars, the reason, yup bleaching!} just to achieve an even tone, same as the tanning waxing oiling and heavy makeup you'd expect.

Not that i haven't *seen* pr0n, mind you, but i wouldn't be the sort to either spend lots of time and/or notice the colour of a porn star's anus. Would have never even occured to me. Evidently though, or at least according to the Harper's statistic, it's becoming mainstream.

I read about anal bleaching in some stupid fashion magazine (in the dentist's office, I think). I was horrified, fascinated, and mildly nauseated. ;)

Well, everyone already knows that Radio WTMI broadcasts 24 hours a day from wherever i'm located. So i'd say you'd all be used to it by now. ;P
