In brief: Anal Sex

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. Anal sex can take some time to get used to. But, for many humans, straight and gay and bisexual, this is a normal part of their sexual life.

In brief: No, but....

Your religion may have taboos against it.
e Some women enjoy it, but many don't. Barrier protection is an absolute requirement, as is a lubricant. Finally, if you do try and do not like it, your partner must stop. Period!
