Can your butthole absorb rotten food?

If you're starving and all that's available is rotten food, can you stuff it in your rectum to absorb the nutrients instead of eating it and getting sick? I read a survival tip that you can hydrate yourself with sea water if you pump it into your rectum. I was wondering if the same concept applies to food?

Is It Normal?

  • Im not sold that you can hydrate yourself with seawater in your rectum. Your rectum would absorb the salt.

  • I knew someone that used to use a reusable enema bottle because he was constipated. He didn't use it for a while because he stopped needing it. When the day came that he needed it again, he used it and got sick. He apparently forgot to wash it the last time he used it and wound up absorbing moldy mildew water. So, yeah, don't even think about shoving rotten stuff up your ass, OP.
    XD

  • Do not. And I mean DO NOT think that your colon will somehow filter out the salt for hydration. That's not how your digestive system works for that. The salt water in all do likelyhood will absorb MORE water out of your system as salt water is significantly more salty than your body. Meaning water will go towards the areas of more salt rather than less salt.

    If you are stuck at sea it is better to make a rudimentary water distillery using plastic or heck even sucking the eyeballs out of fish skulls than to somehow do a water enema, using equipment which can already collect condensation from seawater with some ingenuity.

  • Pretty sure the digestive track's flow is monodirectional

    • Not entirely. If you are suffering a blockage your body will reverse flow in order for you not to die of septic shock.

      That does not mean that the foodstuff will be absorbed for their nutritional content. Only reason why you can be dripped fed through your asshole is some substances can easily pass through into your bloodstream, like alcohol.
