Asking for a friend: How much can I fit up my ass?

This question might be as old as the practice of anal itself. It’s only natural to ask yourself about your own boundaries whenever you’re going into something new. So, how much can you fit up your ass? What does science say? Are there any stories of things going wrong? Let’s find out. 

Let’s look at the facts first

When it comes to knowing how much you can fit into your backdoor, there is a lot of information that can be misleading. First of all, while it’s safe to say that we are all different, that doesn’t mean everyone’s anus is different. However, plenty of psychological factors can influence how much you can store in the back. 

If you consult your trusty WebMD or your actual doctor, you’ll find that all rectums have a certain length and width. The rectum is up to 8 inches long and can be 2.5 inches wide at its widest point. Still, that doesn’t need to mean much to you, a person who’s just trying to live out their anal fantasies to the fullest. 

Let’s think logically. What do rectums do? They have a very important job of holding varying amounts of fecal matter. Sometimes, that fecal matter is bigger than you could expect. Yeah, you know what we’re talking about. So, what does this mean? It means that the rectal tissue is stretchy. That sounds like good news for all folk who want to take their anal plays to an extreme. 

Nevertheless, you should never go crazy trying to fit random things into your butthole. Some things should never end up there, and for a good reason. That’s why you should always stick to small or large butt plugs. You can even try with a dildo, but not unless you’re absolutely sure you know what you’re doing. 

The anus can handle a lot, in fact… 

We’re sure you know of at least one anal horror story. You know, stories of people who end up in the ER because of the stuff they put up their anuses. People can truly get so creative with both the items and the stories of how they got there. 

First, let’s talk about the common items one might almost expect to find there. Of course, we’re talking about vegetables of suggestive shapes, such as cucumbers, carrots, and the like. You know how that story goes — the person just fell on the item in question because they were cooking naked, or so it would seem. Now, what happens when the items people have stuck up there make absolutely no sense? You’ll be surprised to learn some of them. 

This might ruin some people’s childhoods, but did you know that some individuals come into the ER with a Barbie doll stuck in their rectums? We didn’t know that Barbie needed a new home that badly. On the other hand, there are stories of men coming in with items like shampoo bottles, deflated basketballs, toothbrushes, and even glass vases. 

So, when we said that people get creative, we certainly weren’t kidding. It’s important to note that doing things like this is dangerous and irresponsible. This is exactly how you can cause yourself a lot of harm. That’s why it’s always best to stick things that are meant for anal play like extra large butt plugs, especially the ones from lovegasm collection. They won’t disappoint you, we promise!

The worst that could happen

Now, it’s only natural to wonder what’s the worst that can happen, especially if the ER horror stories don’t scare you. Anal stretching definitely isn’t for the faint of heart. Sure, you might have heard of anal training, during which you’re training your anus to stretch to be able to receive whatever it is you want inside. Any further stretching, on the other hand, can end in serious injuries if you’re not being careful.

Sadly, injuries such as tears, cuts, and perforations are the least of your worries when you’re indulging in anal stretching. There are other things that can happen that will put some important functions out of your control. Such is the function to defecate. With stretching comes the weakening of defecation signals. What does this mean? It means you won’t be able to control your bowel movements as well as before, so you can expect to have some leaky pipes. 

Other than all of that, everything should be peachy. Like with all things anal, it’s essential to take things slowly. A lot of patience and a lot of lube is key for successful anal plays.

The bottomline (Pun intended)

Truth be told, we can’t answer the question with absolute certainty. As we already know, we’re all different, and different factors influence all things sexual. Some people don’t have the ability to relax at all, which means that they won’t be able to fit a single finger inside. 

Thankfully, there are ways to find out. If this friend is really so curious about how much they can fit into their anus, they should get checked. That’s how we’ll know the results for sure. Still, we don’t recommend going crazy and pushing the boundaries too far. Most of the people who come into the ER with something stuck inside of them have clearly never heard of lube. 

A lubricant is truly your best friend and your anal partner in crime. Forgetting about it can lead to injuries and pain from your biggest nightmares. We wouldn’t really toy around with something like that. It’s always better to be safe than sorry. 

To start your anal stretching journey, always make sure you start small. No matter how experienced and capable you might think you are, starting small and working your way up is always your best bet.


Science tells you that all rectums are generally the same, but that’s kind of misleading. We’re all different, which means that we’re able to process and handle things differently as well. Just because your friend can easily wear a butt plug all day doesn’t mean that you can do the same thing. Venture into the anal adventures at your own pace.
