Is anal douching (for anal sex) bad? I've gotten mixed answers & research has produced mixed results. Pros/cons? If not bad, what's proper procedure?

In brief: Anal sex

Douching can be traumatic to the tissues and lead to inflammation of the rectum which makes it more easy to catch stds.
Douching with any soap it chemicals makes that even more likely.
