The internet has seen many, shall we say, interesting influencers over the years—the most recent one being Andrew Tate, who has stirred huge controversy online with his polarising views and his affiliate programme, the ‘Hustlers University’. Recently, a new face has entered the chat and has got many netizens talking.
Meet Will Blunderfield, aka ‘The Wild Naked Man’. Blunderfield is a self-proclaimed ‘Sex Kung-Fu Coach’, alternative men’s helath guru, musician and prominent OnlyFans creator whose wild content is causing quite a stir across the internet in 2022.
Specialising in yoga, semen retention, penis reflexology and urine therapy—yep, the man drinks his own pee and semen for their supposed ‘health benefits’—Blunderfield has seen himself go viral across social media with Instagram Reels of him performing these acts. Although the creator’s internet presence can be traced back to 2008, many of his early accounts, as you can imagine, have previously been banned for violating community guidelines.
However, Blunderfield’s initiation with fame didn’t start out with drinking pee and semen on the internet. In fact, his first love was music. In 2010, the influencer signed to Network Music Group, known for managing artists such as Avril Lavigne and Coldplay. 11 years later, he achieved mainstream success in Japan, where he toured extensively—later becoming a brand ambassador for Lululemon Athletica.
2018 saw the creation of his Urban Yogi podcast on Spotify, which rebranded its logo in the following year to replicate The Joe Rogan Experience. Concerning, to say the least.
In the same year, Blunderfield received exposure—no pun intended—in the form of a news article published by the Vancouver Sun, addressing him and his ‘organised naked group’ polar-plunge at Trafalgar Street Beach in Vancouver, British Columbia. At the time, Blunderfield stated that naked, cold dips help with emotional strength training and body dysmorphia or anxiety and told the publication: “It takes a lot of vulnerability and strength to show up naked among a group of strangers.”
Then in 2020, Blunderfield returned to Instagram and, surprise, surprise, most of his content was NSFW in nature—with many posts featuring him naked with an emoji covering his nether regions. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the controversial influencer reiterated anti-mask and anti-vaccination rhetoric through multiple Instagram videos, many of which were reposts from Zoom meetings with his ‘Manhood Academy’. Sound familiar?
As mentioned above, Blunderfield’s urine therapy videos first appeared in 2022 and, as a result, began to spread rapidly across the internet—predominantly on Twitter with users reposting his Reels. One such video was reposted by Twitter user @blameaspartame, in which Blunderfield was seen drinking his own pee mixed with a little sperm. Delightful!
The tweet in question went on to start a viral thread of screenshots and videos of Blunderfield taken from his Instagram account. Here, some users even kicked off a meme template dedicated to the influencer’s antics.
Earlier in August, Channel 5 released a trailer for an interview with American journalist Andrew Callaghan for a documentary on Blunderfield, which the man himself also shouted out on his Instagram.
With similar vibes to the Liver King, given the fact that they are approaching ‘masculinity’ in a rather, let’s say, ‘unorthodox’ way like Tate—albeit not as controversial—Blunderfield’s practices and ideologies are increasingly gaining traction online, although it could be argued that most of that is to poke fun at him.
It will be interesting to see how this influencer’s journey unfolds, especially after his Channel 5 interview. One to keep an eye on perhaps. Just promise us that you won’t be drinking unsupervised pee anytime soon though…
It’s early in the morning. You’re tired after your routine laps around the cul-de-sac when you spot someone with no pants lying on the ground, lifting up their legs before spreading them open in a V shape towards the sun…
Introducing ‘perineum sunning’, also known as ‘who needs coffee when I can butt-chug sunlight?’. The latest wellness trend includes exposing your perineum—the super-thin area of skin between your vagina (or, in men, the penis) and the anus—to the sun for a period of 30 seconds to 5 minutes.
“In a mere 30 seconds of sunlight on your butthole, you will receive more energy than you would in an entire day being outside with your clothes on,” says Ra of Earth in his video, introducing Instagram to this ‘self-care’ trend. The viral video, which has amassed over 84,000 views, features three nude men approaching the sun and pulling off ‘The Sunny Spready Solstice Pose’ at a mountainside.
The wellness enthusiast has also been kind enough to post step-by-step instructions for ‘sun worship exercise’ pulled from The Tao of Sexology: The Book of Infinite Wisdom written by Doctor Stephen T. Chang. “Turn your body so that your back is towards the sun,” the instructions read. “Lean over so that the sunlight comes into the opening. Feel the warmth penetrate into the tissue.” According to the post, sunlight has excellent germicidal qualities that can neutralise germs in the nether regions, keeping the area healthy and free from infections.
The trend later shook spiritual influencer Metaphysical Meagan who took to Instagram to preach the practice. “I start my day with 5 minutes of perineum sunning and feel energised for hours,” writes Meagan, recommending the wellness trend to “anyone who is seeking optimal health.” Meagan notes that perineum sunning is an ancient Taoist practice that originated in the Far East. In Taoism, the perineum is called the “gate of life and death” and is considered a gateway where energy enters and exits the body.
According to Meagan, benefits of perineum sunning include strengthening of organs through solar energy, preventing the leakage of ‘chi’ or life force energy from the body to sustain health and longevity, increasing creativity, aiding libido, regulating hormonal functions, promoting deeper sleep and amplifying your aura. “The ideal hours of the day to do this is between 7 to 9 a.m,” Meagan guides, wrapping up with “the intention of this is not to tan your butthole!”
The trend doesn’t stop there. A-listers like Shailene Woodley, Diplo and Johnny Knoxville are the latest butthole-sunning advocates. “I like to give my vagina a little vitamin D,” Woodley tells Into The Gloss. She admits to having read about the practice in an article written by a herbalist about yeast infections and other genital issues. “If you’re feeling depleted, go in the sun for an hour and see how much energy you get. Or, if you live in a place that has heavy winters, when the sun finally comes out, spread your legs and get some sunshine!”
But what do those with actual medical degrees think about this trend? “As a dermatologist, I cannot recommend any sun exposure without sun protection,” Nazanin Saedi, MD, Director of the Jefferson Laser Surgery and Cosmetic Dermatology Center, tells Health.com. “These areas, just like other areas of the body, need sun protection and clothing tends to provide that.”
“It’s actually dangerous,” comments David E. Bank, MD, founder of Mount Kisco’s Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery. “This skin is particularly sensitive. Over time, it could result in an increased risk of skin cancer,” he adds.
In fact, Josh Brolin, an Academy Award nominated actor, admitted to having sustained ‘#severeperineumburns’ after unquestionably-following the trend. “My pucker hole is crazy burned and I was going to spend the day shopping with my family and instead I’m icing and using aloe and burn creams because of the severity of the pain,” the actor wrote, sharing the viral image of Metaphysical Meagan on Instagram.
While physicians recommend safer options like meditation, mindfulness and actual vitamin D diets and supplements to substitute the trend, it seems like the rest of the internet couldn’t help butting in, some pouring their morning coffees down the drain to try it themselves, others wondering why aliens don’t visit us anymore:
