foreign body in rectum


A self-explanatory term for the all too common practice of placing various articles and devices “where the sun don’t shine” in the context of anal sexuoeroticism. Patients come to medical attention when said objects get stuck beyond reach. 

A perennial favourite topic of discussion in medical circles is the Lost and Found Department, a euphemism for the cornucopia of items that health care workers have either extracted or know on good authority to have been extracted from “the lower forty”, including light bulbs–broken or not, vibrators, gerbils (this per undocumented urban legend), rocks, bottles, steer’s horn, food items (apples, cucumbers, eggs, turnips), tools and so on. Often the entertainment value is not the object itself, but the creative explanations patients offer as to how it or they got there.
