Anal bleaching and the new you

Just like other trends in intimate health care like shaving or waxing our private parts, anal bleaching and all forms of intimate whitening seem to be here to stay.

Men and women both are more in tune with their health and bodies now more than ever before.  Diet, exercise and general well-being are more important than ever before in our history.  That is a great step forward.  Along with better medical care than ever before, people tend to be more aware of what they eat and how things like exercise, hydration and sleep affect them.  Smoking among adults is at an all time low and this is a great step forward to a healthy lifestyle.

People are more and more aware of GMO‘s and how they affect us and our health.  More and more organic and non-modified fruits and vegetables are being sold everyday.  If this trend continues -as every indication points to, the current living generations will likely be the healthiest and longest living in human’s history.

Along with the awareness of healthy eating and healthy lifestyles, more and more people are becoming aware of their bodies and taking more steps in beautifying it.  Gym memberships across the world are at all time highs, with many of those attending trying to firm up their bodies as well as the normal cardio activities.

Skin care, even among men has grown by great strides in the last ten years or so as well.  It is no longer a women’s only world when it comes to skin care  – younger generations of men are realizing what it means to ensure their skin is cared for and hydrated and in fact there have been many skin care products produced in the last decade that cater towards the male population.  If women can work at maintaining a healthy complexion, it is reasoned that there is no reason that men cannot do the same.  This is especially true of men in white collar careers, where often times looks are important, even if it is only for self-esteem.  Blue collar workers seem to be a step or two behind on this trend, but that doesn’t mean that this section of the population isn’t trending upwards as well, just at a slower pace.

Ten, twenty or more years ago, a skin care regimen comprised of applying a facial hydrating cream at night, before bed.  That was generally the extent of the application.  As people became more aware of their bodies and in turn social values changing, allowing more skin to be revealed, this has also led to a change in the skin care regimen.  People started applying creams to their arms, necks, thighs and upper bodies, often including the breasts.

As well as changing the areas that people were applying skin lotions, the cosmetic and pharmaceutical companies were also taking note of the changes and adding newer and much better products to their lineup.  The effects of a good skin care cream purchased today versus something made twenty years ago is very noticeable.  It’s true that in many cases that costs for these skin creams have increased in price dramatically.  This is due not only to manufacturers wanting to make a profit, but also to the more varied and often more expensive ingredients contained in the products of today.

After the basic areas of face, arms, hands, etc.  People started looking at their entire body.  Now that most younger women and a good percentage of men routinely shave, wax, or at least trim their pubic hairs, these areas started to come under scrutiny with the rest.  Often women would find that their vaginal area would be darker than the surround skin, or both men and women would not like the darkness of their anal area.

A lot of misinformation has been thrown about as to why these areas can be darker than the skin around them, with the most common misconception being that is is caused by lack of hygiene.  In fact, hygiene – or even a lack of it – has nothing to do with the skin color.  It is caused by a number of factors that you can read about here.

The logic goes that if a person is trying to make their body as perfect as they want it to be, there is no reason to not choose anal bleaching.  It is safe and effective these days and can be added to the normal skin care regimen of face and hands.  While it may not be something that people want to discuss as openly as what night-time facial cream they use, at the same time it is nothing to be ashamed of and in fact you should try to talk with some of your closest friends about it.  There is a good chance that some of them feel the same way and together you can talk about it and feel comfortable with your decision.



Anal bleaching and you

Sometimes I like to write about topics that people are uncomfortable with.  It tends to open up some discussion and hopefully lets some people open up to ideas that they feel uneasy talking about.

And today that topic is Anal Bleaching.

There are actually an amazing amount of articles written about this topic so that leads me to believe that this is something a lot of people have done, or at the very least thought about and perhaps researched.

I can’t say as I am one of those that has ever really thought about doing this but on the other hand I am not one of those that thinks it is stupid or would be against doing.

There are websites that devote themselves almost entirely to the subject of anal bleaching if you can believe it. And within the realm of anal bleaching is a whole subset of things like vaginal bleaching, nipple bleaching, scrotum and penis bleaching, etc, etc.

Where did this all start?  Why do people care?

From all I have read, the concept of anal bleaching started in the adult entertainment industry.  I guess the idea of a fair skinned porn star with a dark anal area they felt wasn’t too appealing.  So ways of bleaching or lightening the skin were devised.

At first, the methods were, well, downright primitive.  Most concoctions contained some nasty chemicals like hydroquinone (now known to cause or promote cancer) and amazingly enough even things like mercury!

The world seems to have come a long way from those days, which weren’t really that long ago, perhaps ten to fifteen years is my guess.  Now the nasty chemicals are gone in almost all products, replaced with natural ingredients.

If tending my lawn with the newer products that are made of natural ingredients versus the old days with chemicals is any indication, I would guess that these new products with natural ingredients work, but at a much slower pace.  If it were me, I’d rather wait longer to have a green lawn or a pink and shiny anus if it meant I was not harming myself!  I hope that’s not just me…..

So what is your opinion?

During my research, I visited a lot of websites and forums and found that this topic brings out strong reactions on both sides of the discussion.  It is my feeling that the possibly stronger negative side is simply because people that are opposed to the concept of anal bleaching are more likely to voice their opinion than people that are considering it or have already done it.  In short, in our society, anal bleaching is considered taboo in many circles so that the people that are pro towards it are less likely to say anything in fear of being made fun of or other retaliation.  Online forums tend to bring out the worst in people since it is so easy to hide behind the anonymity of your keyboard.

My Opinion

Whatever floats your boat.  I’m not about to order some anal bleaching cream to start lightening up my bum.  I personally don’t look at my anus and since I’ve been married a long time and have never had a complaint from my husband (come to think of it, maybe I should ask him!), it is not something that has crossed my mind.  But if my hubby said “Yeah, I wouldn’t mind if that were a little lighter and brighter”, then yes by all means I would at least consider it.

If you want to do it, and it makes you feel better about your self and heightens your self-esteem then I say go for it.

And if you don’t want to do it, that’s fine too.  But don’t go around making life miserable for the people that choose to do it.  It is their life, their body and their pysche.  Let them live their life just like you want to live yours.
