Anus

The anus is at the end of your intestinal tract. Your poo comes out through your anus. There are hairs around the anus, often extending to the space between the buttocks.

Try it yourself

The anus has two rings of muscles (sphincters):

  • You can flex and relax the external, or outer, sphincter yourself. It sits around 1 cm up from the opening of the anus.
  • The internal, or inner, sphincter is around 1.5 centimetres deeper than the outer sphincter.
