That would be
a "Manhattan Powdered Doughnut"
"Moby Dick's Blowhole" (or just a "blowhole" for short)
the "Executive Surprise"
a "White Christmas"

I could go on, but I'm at work and someone's going to look over my shoulder at any moment, I can just tell.

How the hell does one blow coke up one's own anus?

The 'the hell' stems from disgust and revulsion not frustration and exasperation.

Kenaman:

1) Stretch, start slow, Rome wasn't built in a day.
2)Don't give up if it doesn't work at first.
3)Yoga helps.
4)lean into it.
5)CLOSE THE SHADES.
6)Enjoy it, you limber coke fiend. While you're down there you might want to give yourself a "mic check".

It's more like a couple sort of thing ...

It is also good to remember that blowing hard into any body orifice is not exactly a good idea ...

Here is my source. So maybe doing an Elton is indeed right.

I can only imagine two concievable reasons to do this:
  1. Your nose is so damaged from near-constant long-term cocaine use that the blood, scabs, scar tissue, and residue prevent effective absorbtion of the drug
  2. As part of an erotic encounter
If you are into coke so hard that blowing it no longer gets you high, odds are you'll move to a needle before you start doing this nonsense, so I doubt people do it for reason 1.

Given that coke generally has deleterious effects on the male annatomy, unless some compensatory measures (viagra) are taken, I wouldn't reccommend 2, either.

This leads me to believe that this 'practice' is apocryphal. I'm sure someone, somewhere, has done it, but I doubt that it happens often enough to warrant specialized terminology. Then again, I don't know many homosexual coke users, and this practice might be bigger in that community.

Here is my source.

ahh... your source is a work of fiction. Suspicions confirmed.

It tears too much on the way up. Plus it's hot.

amberglow- So, what's the deal? Is the high any different (quicker/longer/better), or is it just erotic novelty?

Michael Musto mentioned this in the Voice last year. He called it "booty bumping."

"Hooping"

At least that's the name I've heard for sticking Ecstacy up your hiney.

Apparently, I know about hooping but can't correctly spell ecstasy.

There was a thread posted a while back that discussed this. The site talked about using speed. Butte the thread's comments may shine some light on it for you. The link was a gay NY's gossip if that helps. Could be wrong, just recall understanding the life style of a drag queens could fill you in on the conversation.

yes, it really is called "booty bumping" and yes, a lot of folks do it - hard-core drug taking/party going gay men, for the most part. i said MOST, not all. the reason folks do this is because the anus is another mucous membrane, like the nasal cavity, so the drug is absorbed into the bloodstream thru the membrane very quickly AND it gives the membrane a tingly, cool/hot/numb (and many say) pleasurable feeling.

yup, it's a booty bump. It was fun, and very tingly. (i only did it once, so Amberglowing maybe isn't the best name for it) ; >
posted by amberglow at 3:53 PM on July 22, 2004


it was novelty for me, and another safe, fun thing to try with someone.

Nothing says "safe" like cocaine.

Wow... can you smoke with your anus? You know, "blow smoke up your ass"?

safe as in non hiv-transmitting/bodily fluid exchanging.

and you could (or rather, someone else could to you), Keyser, but that wouldn't be as much fun.

I'm tempted to call it "Stupid." But I shan't. At least, not directly. Instead, I shall do it passive-aggressively.
posted by five fresh fish at 9:37 PM on July 22, 2004


OK, zerokey, "assuflation" is a brilliant word for this practice. ("Insufflation" is a fancy word for "snorting," but I just checked the dictionary to be sure and insufflation is defined as "the act of blowing (a gas, powder, or vapor) into any cavity of the body." I suppose "assuflation" would denote a specific cavity.)

I guess it's not very 'street,' though.

can we please call it "the mic check" now?
