Doctors Would Really Prefer You Didn’t Partake In Perineum Sunning

You’ve probably heard a certain nether region of the body referred to as “where the sun don’t shine”. But a new “so-called” wellness trend wants to turn that expression upside down.

Known as “Perineum Sunning,” acolytes claim all sorts of benefits from a little light exposure down there, including more energy, a stronger libido, and even the promotion of better sleep.

According to Instagram user @metaphysicalmeagen, she no longer needs coffee since starting back in October.

Of course, doctors aren’t so keen on the practice. David E. Bank, MD, founder of Mount Kisco’s The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, flat out calls it “dangerous,” adding the exposure can up skin cancer risks.

What are some other ridiculous “wellness” trends you’ve heard about?
