Had anal sex for the first time. There was a small amount of blood afterward. Wiped it off and nothing else remained or bled. Is this normal?

Bleeding after anal. Bleeding after anal intercourse is relatively common. The anus is not naturally designed for sex. If one chooses to have anal intercourse it is smart to go about it very slowly and gently, using plenty of artificial lubricant. Bleeding is a sign you went a bit too fast. Of course, be sure to use condoms with anal intercourse. STDs can easily be transmitted this way.
