The butt of many jokes, the rectum plays a serious role when it comes to pooping. This fecal loading dock is lined with nerve endings that, when filled with poop, tell the brain to find a bathroom pronto. Strong muscles push the poop out of the rectum and through the anus and, if you’re lucky, into the toilet! In case you're looking for your own to snuggle, our new plush rectum is now available for preorder.

“Diuretic” is just fancy talk for “Gotta pee!” ☕️☕️☕️💦💦💦
Medically speaking, diuresis is a condition in which the kidneys filter excessive amounts of bodily fluids and increase the production of urine. A diuretic is a substance, like coffee or water pills, which stimulates this urine-producing function.
A medical condition called polyuria is the excessive and frequent passage of urine. It can be an indicator of diabetes mellitus, and occurs in other conditions such as: polycystic kidney disease, sickle cell disease, pyelonephritis (kidney infection), amyloidosis (deposits of a substance called amyloid in the kidneys), Sjogren Syndrome, and myeloma. Quite a bladderfull!
You can get your own diuretic-free bladder plush in our shop.
