Anal toys without base – Safety…

Alt Alt
I feel the need to bring this subject into light because I constantly see reviews where someone might have tried or thought about trying a toy anally, but many commenters warning about the danger of something if it does not have a base on the toy. Although it is not just here giving clear warning about the possible danger in losing objects… I’ve notice other sex toy sites & people there providing similar or the same warnings

First off, I am curious, has anyone ever encountered losing objects in their rectum, and how long was it? Was it difficult to get out?

I wonder this because the average length of the human rectum is 4.7 inches (12cm) link and I don’t really think any toy that is the length of the rectum or larger is actually going to make 90+ degree turn into the sigmoid colon. (the end point of the colon where the rectum meets it)

See images:

The length of 4.7 as the average seems pretty damn accurate as well, because from the toy length which I have measured, its about 4.6 – 5 inches (probably about 4.4 or little less due to the sphincter muscle)

I think it would be much pain for a toy of that length to somehow get jammed up there, and I certainly wouldn’t think the autonomic nervous system (controls involuntary body functions like the colon and digestion) would be able to manipulate the object in such a way that it could be sucked up in there. Sure, the object could be sucked up to the top of the rectum, but I don’t think that is what the concern are… right? (I assume gravity + manual control over colon, would be able to push it back out. Hell, if needed, an enema could also work too, I bet)

Even IF a toy some how made it up into the Sigmoid and Descending colon (such as a bullet vibe becoming disconnected), I would assume that if it was painlessly brought up in there, then an enema filled up to the Descending colon would be able to evacuate it out painlessly as well right?



So really, my question is:
Why all the worry about longer toys without a base?
Feel free to shed light on this and inform me of information against my theory here, because I am trying to understand what all the concern is about.
Mainly, I am wondering how it would be possible for a toy of around 4.7+ inches to perform a right angle turn in the rectum of average size.


A personal experience would be great to share here, because I am curious who has actually lost something, and if it was difficult to get out, or if it required an ER visit. (yikes)


-A past experience for me:
For me specifically, about 4 years ago before I got into toys, I used to use this metal towel rod, end piece about an inch length to assist in some masturbation stimulation.
One time I was lubed up too much and up it goes… I kind of freaked out, although I wasn’t able to feel it at all. Eventually I was able to get it out, although it wasn’t right at the sphincter because I think the rectum sucked it up into the upper part. Freaking out and not being experienced with anal play I reached in and was able to grab it (it hurt but that is because I didn’t really have any experience then).
Interestingly, it appeared to not have gone into the Sigmoid colon (atleast so I think) even when I was laying down on my back.


Info wanted please.

I've had things go up all the way, and if both ends are rounded it isn't a big deal. After all, the rectum/colon is designed to push things out the anus. Saying it's not a big deal is not the same as saying I wasn't freaked out, though - I was worried all out of proportion to the problem. Personally (speaking as me now, not me then), I wouldn't even bother with the enema unless you really had somewhere you needed to go (something like a glycerin suppository should also work) - once you relax it should come out OK. I'd be a bit worried about things with pointed tips, though, and if the end is flat it could also possibly cause problems at the anus.

Interesting to here. Thank you for the post.

Indeed, I think it is more of a scare factor of getting it sucked up in there, since I think the likely hood of something getting stuck seems somewhat unlikely. (so I think)

I personally realize the risk is very low, but I feel that it is my responsibility when I write a review to address that risk. Many readers of reviews are not necessarily educated about what is safe for their bodies and what is not. I would hate a reader to buy a toy that could get "sucked up" and then wind up being one of those who has to make an ER trip because I failed to warn of the small, but actual, risk.

Happy, very true and that is a good point to be addressed.
Also wouldn't want people to get turned off of anal play because something slips in and they freak out (happened to me when i lost that towel rod end lol)

Luckily i rediscovered the fun with toys.

I wouldn't put up amything without a base or a ring to hold on too. In my ER /OR days, we removed bits of light bulbs, bottles, dolls , long vibrators, a potato (the soldier said he was cleaning his kitchen and "fell" on it), dead rodents, condoms, pencils (oweee), dildos with noo base, a Japanese eggplant, a cucumber, several bitter melons (its a long, green, bumpy Chinese vegetable) a lotus root, a daikon , and a couple fourths of Julys ago two uncooked hot dogs and a pair of tongs (he got a colostomy since he perforated the bowel wall).

Besides, the people in the ER laugh at the poor victim who was just trying to have a little fun.

How did long vibrators, dildos, an eggplant/cucumber get stuck in there?
Was it stuck in the rectum or colon?

I am unsure how these items could even enter the colon by doing a 90 degree turn from the rectum into the sigmoid section of the colon.

If it was just stuck into the rectum, why couldn't the person just push it out manually, did it some how get turned sidewards? (I would assume that would be even less likely than making a full right angled turn)

Wow. That's scary and a little disturbing. Dead rodents?! I don't even want to know. And pencils/tongs?! Someone needs to start handing out well-lubed, condom-ed cucumbers or something!
