A new wellness trend involving the sun is catching the interest of wellness enthusiasts these days. Called “perineum sunning,” this practice involves tanning the butthole for energy.

In a viral video uploaded by wellness influencer Ra of Earth, she said exposing the butthole to the sunlight allows one to get far more energy than from any other known source. It also reportedly keeps the butt area healthy and free of germs.

Ra of Earth’s viral video, which has racked up more than 35,000 views as of this writing, shows three naked men lying down with their backsides pointing to the sky. They make sounds of pleasure as they bask in the sun.

“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,” said Ra of Earth in her video. Alongside the clip was a step-by-step “Sun Worship exercise” she pulled from “The Tao of Sexology: The Book of Infinite Wisdom,” which Dr. Stephen T. Chang also claimed to be effective in maintaining the health of the butthole.

According to Ra of Earth and Chang, soaking up some ultra-violet rays where the sun does not shine has a wide range of health benefits. The vitamin D coming from the sun does not only help one sleep better but also helps regulate hormones.

Troy Casey, another influencer, also claimed that thirty seconds of direct sunlight injection to the anal orifice is equivalent to being outside in the sun all day. A wellness enthusiast who tried perineum sunning confirmed this, saying that she had never felt as strong and healthy as when she started practicing perineum sunning.

“For the past weeks, I have included sunning my bum and yoni into my daily rising routine,” she said. According to her, she learned sunning through her study of Taoism. Since then, she has given up her morning cup of coffee in favor of sunning her butthole.

Just recently, “Big Little Lies” star Shailene Woodley also admitted practicing a version of perineum sunning. “If you’re feeling depleted, go in the sun for an hour and see how much energy you get,” she said. “Or, if you live in a place that has heavy winters, when the sun finally comes out, spread your legs and get some sunshine,” she added.
