Metaphysical Megan is a wellness guru who's gone viral with her posts encouraging you to try Perineum Sunning.

Sunbathing your butthole is the hottest new trend of 2019 and social media star Metaphysical Megan promises us it works.

2019 is no stranger to wild stories and disturbing revelations. Just this year, we've learned that almost 50% of people do not change their underwear daily and a huge portion of the internet don't even wash their legs.

If that weren't horrifying enough, we're growing literal horns in our heads from using our phones too much, people were allegedly putting ice lollies in their vaginas to cool down this summer and sunburn tattoos are a new craze. Yes, that really is as dangerous as it sounds.

Now we have another trend to add to the mix of WTF moments in 2019 but apparently this one is good for you. People are sunbathing their buttholes for health benefits.

Yesterday (Nov 25), a tweet went viral in which someone wrote: "People out here butt-chugging sunlight", along with a set of screenshots of wellness guru, Metaphysical Megan's Instagram page in which she encourages her followers to expose their buttholes to the sun every day. The tweet also included an image of Megan stark naked with butthole aimed at the sun in a bid to get health benefits from it.

Alongside the photo on Megan's Instagram page, she put the caption: "Perineum Sunning. For the past few weeks, I have included sunning my bum & yoni into my daily rising routine." She then added: "Many of you have been asking about the benefits of this practice: 30 seconds of sunlight on your butthole is the equivalent of a full day of sunlight with your clothes on!"

She also said that it's an "ancient Taoist practice that’s been around for a while!" Since taking on the practice she says that it's given her: "surges of energy", "better sleep", "better connection to her sexual energy" and "creativity". She says that she does it for five minutes every morning but "30 seconds is more than enough sunshine exposure down there".

Megan also claims that it's "more energizing than slamming cups of coffee" and is "a game changing practice!!" In another post, she wrote: "!!!!THE INTENTION OF THIS IS NOT TO TAN YOUR BUTTHOLE!!!!" and "sunscreen is not required".

☀️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

According to Jezebel there isn't much information on Perineum Sunning on the internet: "A brief search did turn up some blogs about the Taoist practice of sunning your Yoni and potentially your taint, but nothing asshole-specific." That being, said it looks like it's working out for Megan and we wish her all the best.

Would you try sunbathing your butthole?
