The anus is an exit & can also be an entrance to the
intestinal tract (Colon).
An exit when we need to have a bowel movement or pass gas. An entrance when we insert
something into the
or when we take an enema.
The Anus is a very flexible orifice, during a bowel movement it will expand from closed to approximately ¾ inch to 1½ inches in diameter to allow the passage of feces. During certain medical procedures the anus may be dilated as much as 2.5 inches or 3 inches in diameter. This type of dilation requires a very slow expansion of the muscles so as not to rip or tear them! It also can be very painful and is normally done under mild anesthetic. During an enema the anus tightens around the nozzle or tube to retain the enema liquid. When inserting anything into the anus even an enema nozzle or tube anal lubrication is extremely important!
