A viral Instagram post by a small-time Instagram influencer with a focus on “wellness” has the internet wondering what on earth anyone could gain from sunbathing their butthole.

It started with an Instagram post from Metaphysical Meagan, who now has nearly 10,000 followers. “For the past few weeks I have included sunning my bum & yoni🌺 into my daily rising routine,” Meagan wrote in the mid-October post.

A Twitter user posted screencaps of the post this week, saying, “People out here butt-chugging sunlight,” and it went viral. People made fun of the claims and wondered how when to expect mass reports of sunburnt anuses.

As Jezebel points out, other wellness websites cite “yoni sunning,” or exposing the vagina to sunlight, as an ancient Taoist practice. The Daily Dot’s search turned up one paper in the Journal of International Women’s Studies explaining yoga practices that focus on the yoni and women’s sexuality—but nothing about sun exposure.

But Meagan insists there are several benefits of spreading your legs to the sun, including “surges of energy,” improved sleep, better control of her “Life Force,” and “attracting a soul tribe & people who are on the same frequency and wavelength as me.”

Sunlight helps our bodies process vitamin D and has a number of other health benefits, including positive effects on mood. Experts suggest 10 to 30 minutes of sun exposure several times a week—easy enough to get on a short walk around the block. Metaphysical Meagan says the butthole is better. “30 seconds of sunlight on your butthole is the equivalent of a full day of sunlight with your clothes on!” she wrote.

There’s no scientific evidence to support the claim that your butthole absorbs sunlight faster than any other part of your body. It’s also good that Meagan limits her perineum sunning to five minutes because if she went for a little longer, she really could risk sunburning her “bum and yoni.” As she said in a follow-up post, “THE INTENTION OF THIS IS NOT TO TAN YOUR BUTTHOLE.”

☀️Perineum Sunning PART 2☀️ 🍑I was recently interviewed for an article on this, so I thought I’d share more: Perineum sunning is an ancient Taoist practice that originated in the Far East. In Taoism, the perenium or Hui Yin is called the “Gate of Life and Death.” This is a gateway where energy enters & exits the body. I first learned about perineum sunning through my studies of Taoism and Tantric practices. Mantak Chia speaks about this in his work, as does my friend @ra_of_earth . 🍑The benefits of perineum sunning include: 🌞 •It brings in prana or solar energy from the sun into the organs within the body which strengthens the organs. 🌞 •Perineum sunning prevents against the leakage of chi or life force energy from the body. This in turn sustains health & longevity of the physical body. •Increases creativity and creative output. •Aids in a healthy libido & balanced sexual energy. •30 seconds of sunlight on the perineum is equivalent to being in the sun all day with your clothes on. •It regulates the circadian rhythm and promotes deeper sleep. •Grounds and connects you to the Earth. •Increases your personal magnetism and amplifies the auric field. •Better focus & mental stimulation. •Regulates hormone function in the sex organs. ⚡️ 🍑My experience with perineum sunning has been profound. I have been practicing this for a few months now. I start my day with 5 minutes of perineum sunning & feel energized for hours. I no longer rely on coffee for energy to start my day because I am getting my energy from the sun. I also am experiencing better sleep and require less sleep due to boost of overall energy. • 🍑I would highly recommend this to anyone who is seeking optimal health & wellness and to those looking to connect with their sexual energy in a balanced way. • 🍑The main advice I have that this practice is meant to be done in the time of 30 seconds to 5 minutes MAX in the sun. 🌞 •‼️‼️THE INTENTION OF THIS IS NOT TO TAN YOUR BUTTHOLE‼️‼️ • 🌞 Sunscreen is not required & all you really need is 30 seconds of sun exposure. The ideal hours of the day to do this are between 7-9 am. #ButtholeSunning #SexualHealing #TaoistPractices

If you keep it under 10 minutes and don’t accidentally expose your butthole to anyone without their consent, there is likely little to no harm in butt-chugging sunlight. But is it worth the risk and the potential backache from assuming the position?

If you still want to take Metaphysical Meagan’s word for it, it’s worth noting that she claims to be a “Reverse Aging Adept.” In addition, she and the person she says taught her about the benefits of perineum sunning both sell products for Purium, a multi-level marketing company famous for its “10-Day Cleanse,” which in 2011 was hit with a lawsuit from the Environmental Research Center for having unsafe levels of lead in several of its products.
