The anus was not : Made for that, anal sex can cause a bad infection for you or your partner, anal sex can sometimes cause a tear or perforation of the rectum which would be a medicial emergency, it can permanently damage or injure your anal sphincter which can cause in some people not being able to control your gas or feces so it leaks out uncontrollably, I do not advise anal sex. The vagina was made for that.
