From kids eating tide pods to Steven Seagal becoming a Russian ambassador to Antifa protesters calling a black woman a white supremacist, the predictions of Mike Judge’s “Idiocracy” seem truer each passing day. Add the new “peegasm“ trend as yet another example of humanity’s decline.
So, what exactly is the new “peegasm” trend that some people are stupid enough to take part in? Basically, it’s when someone holds their urine inside for a really, really long time and then lets it fly for a feeling of relief so intense that some have equated to an orgasm; hence the phrase “peegasm.”
The trend now includes a whole Reddit thread where people describe their experiences.
“So my girlfriend recently told me if she’s had to hold her pee in for a while, when she actually goes to pee, she often has orgasms that she feels all the way up her spine to her head,” wrote one user. “If she does ‘reverse kegels’ while peeing, they’re even more likely to happen.”
“She said these orgasms sometimes leave her lightheaded and off balance, and are pretty different from her clit or vaginal orgasms,” continued the post.
Another user wrote, “I call them the piss shivers (cringe) because they’re not quite orgasmic in my opinion but close enough.”
There’s just one problem that these newly-credentialed tantric gurus fail to grasp: the practice could severely damage a person’s bladder.
“Dr. Charlotte Elder is a gynaecologist and spokesperson for The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists,” reports Whimin. “She says that while finally making it to the toilet after holding on for a while feels good the peegasm trend could actually cause bladder damage.”
Dr. Elder said that bladders should not be abused in any way. Holding it in for extended periods of time could cause the bladder to stretch and cause damage that takes years to recover from. It could also lead to a urinary tract infection (UTI) by allowing bacteria to multiply in the urinary tract.
“Bladders need to be treated with respect. It’s important to go when you need to go, not when you’re busting,” she says.
