Avatar of Ass- Seminal Work by Chester Mainard

Chester Mainard was concerned at the number of people who have sensory amnesia in their anal area.  Because most folks never place their attention on their anus, they tolerate sphincter muscle tension, numbness and even chronic pain.  This anal forgetfulness even limits sexual functioning.

From Dr. Jack Morin: 

"Virtually anyone, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, can become more aware of the anal area, learn to relax anal-rectal muscles and expand their capacity to enjoy whichever types of anal stimulation may be desired. Required, however, is sufficient motivation, a little patience, and a clear idea of how to proceed. It is also necessary to become aware of and to challenge the effects of anal taboo. Almost everyone with whom I have worked has found that the rewards-anal pleasure and health-are well worth the effort."  

Chester Mainard here offers three instructional videos that will help you reclaim your capacity for anal pleasure:  Rosebud Massage, The Bottom of Our Consciousness, and Exploring the Land Down Under. 

A surprise from Jack Morin’s research:  “Anal massage is more common than anal intercourse.”  

Video Teachings

Rosebud Massage

Rosebud Massage

Chester Mainard taught that that external anal massage (Rosebud Massage) was as pleasurable and transformative as internal anal massage. He was a master of both.

In this video from 1994, he teaches multiple ways to pleasure the external anal sphincter and surrounding tissues. He divides the strokes into stretches, vibrations, glides, circles and rotations. He suggests using a silicone-based lubricant because water-based lubricants seems to “dry out” which can irritate the tissue of the anal area.

Listening to the Wisdom and Intelligence of our Body

Listening to the Wisdom and Intelligence of our Body

6:53 min.

"There’s an amazing intelligence in our body. And our body speaks to us in a language that’s very simple and very clear. And when it’s not listened to, it talks louder and louder until it finally gets our attention. Or until it’s in such desperate shape that it can no longer be ignored." "When is it going to be convenient to start listening to our own bodies?"

Asshole, Shit and Death Rant

Chester explains "anal breathing."  Then he rants about how our use of the words "asshole" and "shit" harm our own bodies. He gets really worked up about how the contemporary approach to death denies the natural cycles of nature.

Assholes Love to be Hungry

Assholes Love to be Hungry

11:14 min.

Chester speaks about anal hygiene--both physical and emotional safety.  This speaking is in 1994 when AIDS was raging (before protease inhibitors.)  He speaks of latex and vinyl gloves.  Today nitrile gloves have become the standard with many folks still choosing to use vinyl gloves.    

Chester then explains one of his most important teachings:    The resilient edge of resistence.  Here is an essay by Barbara Carrellas from Urban Tantra on the resilient edge of resistence.  Barbara was Chester's partner in teaching for many years.
