Friction, trauma, ...: Just like in any big city, some streets are one-way and some streets are two-way. A vagina is created or evolved to be a two-way street (penis in, baby out). However, the gastrointestinal tract is designed to be one-way, with an opening on each end. Food goes in the mouth, and the brown stuff goes out the butt. The exception is when one vomits what the body thinks is bad or toxic for the stomach. ...Read more

I've been having anal sex but without proper lubrication and I got tears in my anus so I put Neosporin in my anus too protect from infection this ok?
Neosporin is probably okay for this, but I would add soaking in warm water with epsom salts and increasing your fluid and fiber intake.

I had protected anal sex but I have this tear around my anus. What do I need to do to keep from getting HIV or an infection.?
Stay protected: I take it that you mean by the word protected that you are using condom. It gives you decent but not complete level protection against hiv. Anal tear however is likely to get infected by stool bacteria. Would see a doctor for evaluation and antibiotics. Cannot rule out that what you call a tear is actually herpes ulcers from earlier exposure that is just deactivating on you now. ...Read more

Recently had unprotected anal sex. 4 days later I have a small tear or cut on my anus. It doesn't itch but is sore when I wipe. Could this be herpes?
Not clear: To answer this question, you need a personal examination by a physician. Anal sex can be traumatizing, and you may have been injured. It could be herpes also -- if infected, the first outbreak usually happens within 2 weeks of exposure. It's very hard to know without visualizing the area. ...Read more

Herpes or anal fissures? 2 tears on anus. No other sores and no anal sex. Terrified I contracted an std after a one night stand 8 mths ago. Scared!
Herpes unlikely: Herpes can mimic anal fissure or "tear", but usually it does not. If you had acquired herpes during the exposure 8 months ago, you probably would have had typical blisters, sores, etc at the site (s) of exposure, i.e. vaginal opening or labia. But the only way to know for sure is to see a doctor. Do it ASAP, before the fissures start to heal, for accurate HSV testing if s/he recommends it. ...Read more

If: If you are using an artificial penis or anal dilators on your partner, this could lead to physical damage to the anus and the rectum over time, which could eventually lead to loss of bowel control. In addition if the instrument used is not cleaned properly prior to use there is a risk for infection. ...Read more
Anal sex is a common human sexual experience. There is no bad or good in medicine or science.
Sometimes there is shame. Sometimes there are risks for common stds, just like other forms of sexual intercourse.

Yes and no: The anus is not made for sex, it does not produce any natural lubrication. So if your going to try it, then you need plenty of high quality artificial lube (astroglide or pjur), go slow, be gentle and if it hurts, stop. Also the anus is very susceptible to catching stds, so make sure your partner does not have any. ...Read more
Only if it's safe: Any kind of sex comes with risk unless proper precautions are taken. Anal sex will not cause pregnancy, of course, but is a higher-risk way to transit sexual infections if unprotected. Condoms prevent this spread, and use of a water-based lubricant with the condom will help prevent condom breakage (often happens with anal sex). Lubricant is also important to reduce cuts and trauma to the anus. ...Read more
Anal Sex and health:
Yes. Especially if done with patience, and with a toy or partner that is kind, gentle, and experienced.
There are few extra risks to anal sex when compared to other forms of sexual expression. But, remember there are eleven common sexually transmitted diseases and the anus is just as likely to be an area at risk of these infections without proper protection. Learn the facts and then have fun. ...Read more
Possibly....: I would always suggest the male wear a condom, or risk serious prostatitis. And also to prevent hpv, herpes, and other stds being transmitted. For the female, usually lubrication would be needed and the attempts should be gradual, as not to cause pain, anal fissures, and general trauma. If the female either has pain and discomfort and does not enjoy it, then the activity should be removed! ...Read more

Possible: Anal sex is associated with many risks. The most common is infection due to exposure to fecal matter and large quantities of bacteria.
