A website has published X-rays showing things people have shoved up their bums.

Dr Frank Gailand founded Radiopaedia seven years ago and the website has published images of various items inside peoples' bottoms, including sex toys, deodorant cans and an instant coffee jar.

The website says it tries "to create the best available radiology reference, and to make it available to you as well as your colleagues to use for free and forever".

For example, one doctor explained the dangers of inserting an eggplant into your anus.

The doctor said: "The shape of the eggplant means that once its equator has passed the anal verge it has a tendency to scoot up up and away.

"When that happens ... well, it means an embarrassing trip to the emergency department, or perhaps the local horticultural society."
