Very broad question: I deally sex should should be thought of as a very close, romantic & personal relationship.Should begin with two people who are strongly attracted to each other. Start by holding hands, later kiss if both pertners are so moved. Then partners can stroke & touch each other starting in safe areas & then possibly to more intimate areas if both are comfortable & then 1 of you will know what comes next.

Not sure.: That depends on why you weren't having it to start with. And of course, "can" and " should" aren't the same thing.

Please add Comment: Did you recently have a baby? Do you have bleeding? Are you infected? There are many reasons to postpone intercourse. Please rewrite your question or add a comment below this answer. Thanks.

Potentially: The anus is an exit not an entrance, and so i discourage my patients from partaking. Besides the risk of infection including std's, you risk damage to the sphincter mechanism that can not be repaired, leaving you with variable incontinence. Not worth the risk!
Dr. George Klauber

Overall agree with Dr. Kaplan. However, Anal sex is the preferred form of sex for majority of sexually active gays. A number of heterosexual couples find the thought of anal sex exciting. Male partner needs to be gentle, patient and use plenty of water soluble lubricant. Also be prepared to stop or withdraw if partner finds the experience too unpleasant or painful.

What is decadent? Sex>

Dr. Michael Sinclair

Decline or decay: Technically, the word decadent means declining or decaying. In "adult literature" decadent sex usually describes sex that is more desirable due to being excessively "dirty". Either way, it's not a medical term.

Too much sex urge?

Dr. Michael Sinclair
Family Medicine 38 years experience
Is it a problem?: If you are having sexual urges that are strong enough to cause a disruption of your life style, then it's too much. If not, no problem. Most men your age suffer from not enough sex urge. If it's not bothering you or anybody else, then enjoy it.

How is sex healthy?

Dr. Jane Steiner
Psychiatry 43 years experience
It's part of life: Sex is how all of us have gotten here. Sexual feelings are normal for both boys and girls starting at an early age and as they go through puberty. It is appropriate as one becomes older to express love through a mutually agreed upon sexual relationship.
