    …there is a serious side to this. Gold is a “heavy metal” and inserting it into the rectum is a terrible idea. Gold Poisoning has some rather detrimental effects on the liver and kidneys as well as even neurological symptoms such as irritability and psychosis.

    True, most likely it is in some sort of packaging before being inserted, though should that package rupture, the metal would come into contact with the rectal membrane. A trend a while back was to do rectal shots of alcohol because the body absorbed it faster that way than ingesting it normally. .
