Is Anal Douching Safe

Some instruments can cause anal / rectal irritation and even ulcers. So be careful what you use and how you use it. Recommend you consult with your doctor first. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
This refers to the systematic internal rinsing of the vagina. You typically use a kit specifically designed for this. A solution is in a plastic bottle like container with a thin tube (straw like) extending from it. The tube is inserted and the bottle is squeezed. The tube has a tip that allows the solution to spray around inside. The solution and any other contents can drain ...Read more
Not safe: No. Destroying your natural rectal and colon environment leads to increasing risk or more dangerous infections or bacteria. Frequent douching increases HIV risks. I know of no physician that would recommend even one douching let alone repeated douching. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not if careful: Firstly anal intercourse must be consensual. Recipient partner needs to relax anal sphincter as much as possible, best to use water soluble lubricant or a neutral oil ; initial insertion should be slow ; gentle. Anal intercourse should not be harmful under these conditions. ...Read more
Generally, no...: Physiologically, it's not safe. But fantasy has mesmerized some people engaging in anal coitus. As to using saliva as lube, it is the fact that saliva still contains some bacteria besides the existing bacteria inside the rectum and anal canal. Theoretically, it's safe. I would not advise to practice anal sex although personal fantasy may overtake the reasoning. Best luck... ...Read more
