Butthole sunning. It’s a thing, and here’s what you need to know.


Butthole sunning is the act of exposing your anus directly to sunlight. Enthusiasts of the practice claim that facing your hole towards the sun for thirty seconds allows you to absorb abundant amounts of vitamin D.

Several influencers, including Jackass star Johnny Knoxville, have endorsed the practice on social media. Knoxville reposted a how-to video from former CrossFitter and gym owner Ra of Earth who’s a proponent of the wellness trend.

“Thanks to @rickkosick for turning me on to this game-changing life hack that allows me to get my fill of vitamin D,” Knoxville wrote on Instagram.

According to Ra of Earth, butthole sunning has loads benefits.

“In a mere 30 seconds of sunlight on your butthole, you will receive more energy from this electric node than you would in an entire day being outside with your clothes on,” Ra explains.

Ra’s how-to video features three men lying on their backs with their legs spread and holes towards the sun.

“How does it feel?” Ra asks. “Warm,” they reply.

Ra also posted an excerpt from the book Tao of Sexology, which goes deeper into detail about the advantages:

“Sunlight has excellent germicidal qualities, and exposure to the sun will help keep the anal and vaginal area healthy and free of germs. It is also excellent for the treatment of hemorrhoids”.
