If you ask a depth bottom for his secret to depth, he’s likely not able to give you a single piece of advice that you deem helpful.
Some will say it’s genetic, others will say surgical (like myself), and still others will say tons of practice with toys.
The scientific explanation regarding your depth capacity is anchored firmly to a little-known organ called the mesentery.
What is the Mesentery?
Before getting into any deep conversation regarding this organ, it must be acknowledged that the jury is still out on if the mesentery is actually an organ. Some anatomists classify it as a tissue while others classify it as an organ. Regardless of its classification, it’s likely the culprit of your depth frustration.
The purpose of the mesentery is to keep your innards fully in place. It spreads throughout your abdominal cavity and wraps around your colon in many places. As the colon exits the abdomen, it dissipates completely and is replaced by a few instances of connective tissue. The rectum itself has no mesentery, which allows it to swell and expand for defecatory purposes.
Inside the intestine, the mesentery clings tightly to the colon and requires repeated work over long periods of time to allow for movement. Here is where genetics and surgery helps. In my case, surgery made depth play easy. While searching for bullet wounds from a carjacking, the surgical team detached some of my mesentery away from the colon. When I started my depth play, I had limited patches to then modify through hole conditioning. In others, such as the famous (or infamous) hole, HungerFF, genetics played a role in diminished capacity of the mesentery (allowing both a prolapse and easier depth). Those that don’t have either surgical or genetic advantages and those that don’t have a daily yoga routine, have to work super hard by repeated, frequent, regular depth play.
Modifying the Mesentery
Frequency of play is important. For those that have irregular or limited fisting sessions with small handed partners, the mesentery regenerates between sessions and progress is slow. For those that play with longer toys on a regular, almost daily basis, the mesentery doesn’t get a chance to re-connect and regenerate.
Firmness and Length are important. The firmness of a toy also has some affect on mesentery modification. Small diameter, soft toys like colon snakes help to modify the lumen (or the interior channel), but they do little toward reducing mesenteric connections. Yet these toys are not worthless. Without practice with them, the lumen would not accept larger, firmer toys. But, beware of firmer toys. Perforation and Firmness are directly related. A wise battle plan is needed to prevent injury while generating depth capacity.
Larger firmer toys will wage war with your mesentery. You can win this war of attrition by small victories and meaningful defeats, but not with major battles and massive victories. If you push the foe (mesentery) too hard, it will just redirect you to an alternate pathway: perforation. This leads to surgery to repair the battlefield and a couple of years where you are out of commission. Never try to go deeper than a 1/4 inch (or half cm) at a time unless you want to wear an colostomy bag for a few months. Never try to go deeper on heavy poppers, ethyl-chloride, or meth. You will probably get the same result. Instead, determine a regimen of daily or near daily play and accept that it will take a few years to make it near the elbow. Occasionally and quite unexpectedly, you may reach a weak spot in the mesentery and make a good leap in depth: a full centimeter or half inch. Celebrate those days. Beat off. Shoot a nut.
