When we say booty beauty, we’re not talking about squats or tanning your tush. We’re talking about anal bleaching. With the popularity of bikinis, lingerie and adult-themed movies, people have become much more conscious of their bodies.
As adult film star gained mainstream appeal, people noticed their holes were darker than the holes on screen. Naturally, gay and bisexual men quickly jumped on the booty beauty bandwagon, and the first anal bleaching treatment was offered in West Hollywood, California in 2005.
Now, before you order a bottle of booty bleach, there are a few things you should know.
1. What is anal bleaching?
It’s pretty straightforward; anal bleaching involves using creams (or sometimes lasers) to lighten the skin around your hole. The creams inhibit your skin’s ability to make melanin, which temporarily lightens the color of your skin.
2. Will I need multiple treatments?
Yes. After bleaching, exposure to sunlight can make your skin darker than it was when you started. So, if you like to tan, you’ll need to protect your purple starfish from ultraviolet rays, or you could end up with a dark brown starfish. Unfortunately, the dark pigment will inevitably return. If you want to stay perfectly pink, bleaching your bum will become routine maintenance.
3. Are there risks?
Yes. Gynecologists and dermatologists agree anal bleaching is more serious than many spas suggest. Some people report irritation, burning or even scarring from the procedure. You should probably avoid a Groupon, too. You’d rather be safe than sorry, so look for a clean professional spa.
