I'm sure it hurts. I'm sure its also eventually enjoyable. I however don't think that most of the tenants of 'manliness', in the old world sense of things, i.e., not a sense I adhere to, but belonging to something more ancient and deep rooted then I am able to fathom, is, without a doubt (to me), not conducive towards getting your colon reamed by anything aside from a doctor who's about to tell you he had to do so because you are about to die of prostate cancer.
I'm not saying we have to adhere to this standard now. I don't believe its got much place in the world today, because its been replaced by better standards. Spartan's were manly. Lumberjacks, manly. So are marathon runners, vagabonds and those guys who can tell whats wrong with your car by the way it sounds.
Manliness is not being uneducated, being uncouth or being an asshole. Nor is it being ripped to the tits or proficient in four forms of kung fu. Old world manliness as I see it (yes, this is opinion, but also based on class readings and such) is based on the ability to procure ones standard of living for oneself, to be civil but not polite, to uphold your morals and defend your beliefs, to have no requirement to address your feelings unless they can be described in a single metaphor, and live by actions under the assumption that others will too.
Er... Okay: Malcolm Reynolds, manly. Harrison Ford, manly. Swartzenegger, questionable, Van dam, not manly. Bill Adama, manly, Lee Adama, NOT manly.
So yes, I would venture that taking it in the bum is not manly. But hell, this is all personal opinion as it relates to old world manliness.
... with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandalled feet.
