SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If someone tells you to “stick it where the sun don’t shine,” they might be doing you a favor.

That’s according to a San Francisco-based sex therapist who claims sticking a finger up your bottom for 30 seconds each day can improve your health.

Dr. Jack Morin, author of a new book called Anal Pleasure And Health (Down There Press), says something called “sphincter tension” is a major cause of hemorrhoids, constipation and other problems.

He says the best way to relieve the tension is by shoving a clean finger up your rear end for 30 seconds everytime you’re in the shower.

Morin claims men in particular can benefit from a finger up the bottom because it massages the prostate and helps keep the gland in shape.

However, many health care experts are poo-poohing Morin’s findings.

Dr. Bard Coffman, a colo-rectal surgeon at the University of California at San Diego Medical Center, says there’s no proof that inserting anything into the anus is effective at relieving tension. Usually, he says, “...the anus likes to be left alone.”
