I have always wondered... (FYI this can be the dumbest question of the night)

What are people picking when they "pick their butt"

I only go down there for grooming, washing, and wiping. What are people doing when picking their butt?

Are they going in the crack? Are they picking scabs? Picking dingle berries? Popping zits? Itching something? I really don't know. I have personally never had anal problems and I am curious.

  • I'm pretty sure they're picking wedgies (underwear which has uncomfortably ridden up their crack) . . . why else would anyone go into their buttcrack? Popping zits . . in their buttcrack?? YUCK! I think itching something would quality more as '"Scratching their ass" and not "picking it."

  • I would hope it is only a wedgie from their underpants. I suppose thongs would really give you the worse ones that have you picking awhile until you can grab it. Otherwise, I suppose a person who does not cleanse themselves properly or have itchy 'rhoids would have something to pick at. Be sure not to shake the hands of a person who picks unless they wash first. :)

  • *TMI ALERT TMI ALERT* LOL I almost killed my best friend when she told me this. SHe's a closet nudist (mainly just around the house) but the one thing that irritates her about it is her long hair. She'll get *TMI ALERT* a hair stuck up her...shall we say, hole? SHe has to pull it out. I almost puked right then and there.

    I really just thought "pick" and "scratch" were pretty much euphemisms for the same thing: getting at a good itch.

  • lol I have the hair in my bum issue too! I get it after having had a shower! It's especially bad after I've had a baby as my hair falls out in bigger clumps!
    My bum also likes to "eat" my underware. Could be time for new ones I guess! lol

  • You've never had a wedge? Try wearing panties sometime.
