Anal..?
« on: August 17, 2015, 01:24:29 AM »
What are the health risks of doing anal (with a condom & lube & obviously not going from one hole to the other)? Ways to decrease the pain/make it more enjoyable? General advice? I've done it a few times as I like to give my boyfriend something special every now and then and I'm looking for ways to enjoy it more.. He knows my limits and never forces me out of my comfort zone. This is just something we like to do to spice things up on occasion.  Please please please no hate and everyone be respectful! Only helpful comments please. Thank you!

Is Anal Sex Safe?
There are a number of health risks with anal sex, and anal intercourse is the riskiest form of sexual activity for several reasons, including the following:

•The anus lacks the natural lubrication the vagina has. Penetration can tear the tissue inside the anus, allowing bacteria and viruses to enter the bloodstream. This can result in the spread of sexually transmitted infections including HIV. Studies have suggested that anal exposure to HIV poses 30 times more risk for the receptive partner than vaginal exposure. Exposure to the human papillomavirus (HPV) may also lead to the development of anal warts and anal cancer. Using lubricants can help some, but doesn't completely prevent tearing.
•The tissue inside the anus is not as well protected as the skin outside the anus. Our external tissue has layers of dead cells that serve as a protective barrier against infection. The tissue inside the anus does not have this natural protection, which leaves it vulnerable to tearing and the spread of infection. 
•The anus was designed to hold in feces. The anus is surrounded with a ring-like muscle, called the anal sphincter, which tightens after we defecate. When the muscle is tight, anal penetration can be painful and difficult. Repetitive anal sex may lead to weakening of the anal sphincter, making it difficult to hold in feces until you can get to the toilet. However, Kegel exercises to strengthen the sphincter may help prevent this problem or correct it. 
•The anus is full of bacteria. Even if both partners do not have a sexually-transmitted infection or disease, bacteria normally in the anus can potentially infect the giving partner. Practicing vaginal sex after anal sex can also lead to vaginal and urinary tract infections. 

Anal sex can carry other risks as well. Oral contact with the anus can put both partners at risk for hepatitis, herpes, HPV, and other infections. For heterosexual couples, pregnancy can occur if semen is deposited near the opening to the vagina.

Even though serious injury from anal sex is not common, it can occur. Bleeding after anal sex could be due to a hemorrhoid or tear, or something more serious such as a perforation (hole) in the colon. This is a dangerous problem that requires immediate medical attention. Treatment involves a hospital stay, surgery, and antibiotics to prevent infection.

Preventing Anal Sex Problems;
The only way to completely avoid anal sex risks is to abstain from anal sex. If you engage in anal sex, it is always important to use a condom to protect against the spread of infections and diseases.

Following are more tips for increasing anal sex safety:

•Avoid inserting a penis into the mouth or vagina after it's been inserted in the anus until your partner puts on a new condom.
•Use plenty of lubricant to reduce the risk of tissue tears. With latex condoms, always use a water-based lubricant.
•Relax prior to insertion of the penis to help reduce the risk of tears. •Taking a warm bath before anal sex or lying on your stomach may make insertion easier.
•Stop if anal sex is painful.
•If you experience bleeding after anal sex or you notice a sores or lumps around the anus or a discharge coming from it, see your doctor as soon as possible.

It's best to be as relaxed as possible from personal experience. And once it starts to feel uncomfortable at all I would say that's your body saying it's time to stop. There are obvious risks like what's it the above internet post. Always be safe and if you have issues beyond what you know, don't be afraid to talk to a doctor, they've heard it all.
