Good news, I’ve got another great fad for you. 2019 has been great for these, you may recall the other week I brought you dopamine fasting, the practice of laying off all forms of stimulation – including food and drink – in order to reset your pleasure receptors. 

Well, talking of pleasure receptors, here’s a new health trend for you known as perineum sunning. In case you’re confused (you probably are), it’s the fine art of positioning yourself with your legs akimbo and facing the sun so that the general area between your legs gets a nice healthy dose of vitamin D.

For many people, physically getting their perineum into a position where it can soak up the rays in the first place, can be a problem. According to the online photos, what you really need to do is adopt the happy baby yoga position in order to really get that perineum pointing skywards. This involves lying on your back (which is the easy bit) and then bending your knees in order to hold onto your big toes. Think: six-month-old baby on a changing mat and you’ll get the idea.
