Hemorrhoids: Swollen lumps on the anus are usually thrombosed hemorrhoids. These are hemorrhoids with a blood clot. They are usually very tender making it uncomfortable to sit and may bleed. I suggest you see a doctor for a diagnosis and treatment.

Anal sex is very much an individual choice and like other more common sexual choices it should never be forced on anyone. Taboos come in many forms. It's up to the individuals involved to make their own choices - just be smart about it.

To each his own: I think that if you asked twenty people in a row you would get twenty different answers. If you are certain of your relationship you could ask. To actually know you would almost have to ask each individual every time. Sexual choices are one of the most varied and personal things we humans have.
