The man posted a very NSFW photo of the lack of crack on Reddit and explained that his buttcrack was sewn up due to severe pilonidal cysts. “I’ve had multiple surgeries on it, and instead of the usual procedure which involves letting it heal, mine was so bad that a plastic surgeon had to close it up,” he wrote. “But they keep coming back, and it’ll probably just get worse as I age.” A pilonidal cyst is “an abnormal pocket in the skin that usually contains hair and skin debris. A pilonidal cyst is almost always located near the tailbone at the top of the cleft of the buttocks,” according to the Mayo Clinic. Doctors often drain the cysts or remove them surgically.
The man’s butt crack isn’t completely sealed, so it looks like he has a hole there. Some users wondered if it was a frontal photo with his bellybutton, but he assured them that this was not the case. “I wish my stomach was that flat,” he joked.
He also told Reddit users that he still passes gas and defecates just like anyone else and that the sound of his farts are still the same. He also praised his wife for taking care of him: “This woman packed gauze into the puss-filled, gaping hole post-surgery. Not a single complaint.”
One user called it a “ButtLack,” prompting the original poster to write, “I’m using this. I guarantee it.”
