I can't: Really condone anal sex. Too much risk for std's and damage to the sphincter muscle. But if you insist use a water-soluble lubricant such as KY jelly. Any petroleum base lubricant will dissolve condoms and make them useless. Lastly, remember the anus was designed as an exit not an entrance. ...Read more
Check package: Unless the manufacturer specifically states it is not--the condom does not 'know' how it is being used, and should be ok. ...Read more
Condoms is a must: Condoms should always be used to prevent std's, hiv, etc. So if you want to gamble with you life don't use a condom. If you have a partner that is in a 100% monogamous relationship with you then you may skip the condom (as long ASD you guys are also clear of anything that can be transmitted). This applies to both hetero and homosexual relationships. ...Read more

Had anal sex recently and when I went to the bathroom, noticed blood. When I wiped, I saw a good amount of blood from my anus. When should I see my doc?
Be checked...: Go to be checked and counseled so to assure what and how you may expect in future sex. But still remember: Anus is meant for defecation although personal urge and fantasy to pursue seeking unlimited sex pleasure has reined and even ruined some people's life. Of course, minimally, one needs to see you may have hemorrhoids. ...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 you're 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
Let me think...: 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
