Josh Brolin Burnt His Butthole After Taking Instagram Influencer’s Advice

Avengers star, Josh Brolin, gave himself a very sore behind after testing out a bizarre self-care craze that swept through the internet recently, which saw him test out the wellness trend of tanning your butt area in the sun.

But it didn’t have the desired effects for the star, who said it left him “crazy burned”

“My pucker hole is crazy burned,” wrote the Academy Award-nominated star of MilkNo Country for Old Men, and Inherent Vice. “…I was going to spend the day shopping with my family and instead I’m icing and using aloe and burn creams because of the severity of the pain,” the star explained.

Ouch.

Dubbed as “perineum sunning,” the questionable practice sees people tanning the thin area of skin between their anus and private parts.

It was all started by a blogger named Metaphysical Meagan, a self-proclaimed “Healer, Teacher,” and “Embodied Mermaid” who recently took to Instagram to lend her advice to her nearly 30,000 Instagram followers – explaining that exposing your butt to the sun is supposedly good for you.

According to the Instagrammer, this is because it is derived from an ancient Taoist practice that strengthens your organs, increases creativity, regulates circadian rhythm, and improves libido, among many other supposed benefits.

After the trend when viral, many have been warning of the dangers of taking part in the practice, including the risk of developing cancer.

Shamir Patel, founder of Chemist 4 U, said: “Vitamin D is essential for our bodies, promoting healthy bones, teeth, and muscles.

“But there are far easier ways to get a dose of Vitamin D than exposing your perineum to sunlight. While the healer is only promoting 30 seconds of irregular sun exposure, a sustained period of doing so, could lead to long term sun damage.

“There are no studies or research to suggest that it works, so it really has no benefit, either.”

So, moral of the story? Don’t copy Brolin… keep your butt firmly out of direct sunlight.
