    What's the best toy for male-anal stimulation?
    LoveMyGuy responded:

    No, that is a complete myth. I'm female but I have anal sex ALL the time with a guy with a very thick penis, and I can tell you that being pentrated anally does NOT cause anal proplapses. It might aggravate one that has alreay occurred for all the opther reasons they happen, but the sex itself will not cause one.

    TX, that's like asking which color car is best to buy. My guy has several and says all of them feel good, any of the prostate stimualtors feel good to him and likely will for you too. You just have to try a few to find YOUR "best"..K?

    georgiagail replied to LoveMyGuy's response:
    Rectal prolapse is actually pretty rare and, as the attached article states, tends to be limited to the elderly:

    The OP may be confusing prolapse with a rectal tear or laceration, sometimes seen in anal rape.

    LoveMyGuy replied to georgiagail's response:
    Thanks Gail! :) I didn't know rectal prolapses were mostly in elderly people. I thought they were common in younger women from childbirth, but maybe I'm thinking of vaginal or uterine prolapse or cystoceles (sp?) Anyway thanks for the info :)

    georgiagail replied to LoveMyGuy's response:
    A rectocele is when the vaginal wall thins and the rectal tissue can bulge into the vagina. This is different than a rectal prolapse where the rectal tissue hangs out of the anus.

    A rectocele can occur as a result of childbirth.
