Pigs live close to the ground, and boars tend to "scent mark" by dragging their butts in their litter. They pick up shavings, dirt, potentially hair or other material all over their undercarriage, including penis and anus. They also get a lot of smegma, and you need to clean that or they can get infections on their shaft or on the penis. Ouch!
Most male animals need their penis cleaned from time-to-time. Drop in on the horse care thread (in General Chat) for posts on sheath-cleaning!

That said, I didn't realize I was supposed to be cleaning it either. Is there a link?

I looked at all the photos again on the impaction page, and I don't actually see the anus in them. When I clean my pigs, the anus is usually easy to see, because that's where the leftover, not-quite-out poop is hanging. It's like a little Pez dispenser!Where exactly is the anus?
