User :   I am a 31yr old male. about 4 months ago i discovered anal masturbation and began doing it 2-3 times a week with a 2.5 inch long about 1 inch thick toy. I never thought it was a bad idea until i read online that you can permanently ruin your sfinter muscle and even if you stop it will continue getting losser and weaker until you have major problems. After reading this i looked at mine in the mirror by placing the mirror on the floor and squatting over it. I noticed that my anus does not shut but stays slightly open all the time. I'm really worried and panicked about this. I stopped anal masterbation for good out of fear, but is it too late? Should I be concerned?
Doctor :  
you need not be concerned as the anal musculature do regain the tone after the offending agent has been removed
User :   is anal masterbation safe?
Doctor :   no it is not safe
User :   so since i did it for awhile do you think i could have injured myself
User :   or would i know it
Doctor :  
if there is any injury it would have shopwed up by itself
User :   ok, so i got lucky and need to never do it again is what your saying
Doctor :   yes you are lucky and escaped the anal injury
Doctor :  
need to be cautious in future
User :   thank you, and thank you for your time
Doctor :  
thanks for consulting health care magic
Doctor :  
bye for now
