There is nothing wrong with engaging in anal sex. However, whether it is right for you is something only you can decide. I remember when I tried it for the first time. I was so glad I researched it (not to mention shopping for lube) and asked for advice from those who have done it previously. The key and most important aspect which I learn’t was the importance of being comfortable with whole thing.
The anus is not capable of producing its own lubrication, like the vagina can, and the tissue of the anus is very fragile. Which is why it is important that additional water-soluble lubrication be used during anal sex. Without lubrication, there may be pain, discomfort and tearing of the tissue in the anus.
During anal sex, as with any other type, comfort and relaxation are important for a pleasurable experience. When inserting a penis into the anus, go slowly and stop if there’s pain or resistance. It’s best if a person empties the bowels (poops) before anal intercourse and washes well before and after anal sex.
Safety is key. So it’s important to know that anal sex is one of the ways that HIV can be spread sexually. This is because the lining of the anus is fragile, causing it to tear easily if there is not enough lubrication.
It is advised that you use you use a condom on the penis or your finger if you’re performing anal penetration with your finger. You can also use a female condom on the penis for insertion in the anus.
Please remember to never put the penis into the vagina after it has been in the anus without changing the condom or washing the penis first! Same thing goes that after the penis has been in a partner’s anus, it should never be inserted into a partner’s mouth without changing the condom or washing the penis off first. Infections can be a major turn off.
People have a lot of different feelings about anal sex therefore before engaging in anal intercourse. So make sure that you and your partner have discussed and agreed upon it with no pressure or discomfort. The more open you are sexually, the more satisfaction you get.
