Anal Sex – Is It Good For Health – Harmful Effects of Anal Sex

anal sex harmful and risky

Anal sex or anal intercourse is generally the insertion and thrusting of the erect penis into a person’s anus, or anus and rectum, for sexual pleasure. Other forms of anal sex include fingering, the use of sex toys for anal penetration, oral sex performed on the anus (anilingus), and pegging. Though the term anal sex most commonly means penile-anal penetration, sources sometimes use the term anal intercourse to refer exclusively to penile-anal penetration, and anal sex to refer to any form of anal sexual activity, especially between pairings as opposed to anal masturbation.

Recent researches have shown that anal sex is the riskiest type of sex for HIV transmission. It’s possible for either partner—the insertive partner (top) or the receptive partner (bottom)—to get HIV, but it is much riskier for an HIV-negative partner to be the receptive partner. Vaginal sex also carries a risk for HIV transmission, but it is less risky than anal sex. Oral sex poses little to no risk of getting or transmitting HIV.

To add variety to sex life, some males insist on anal sex with partners. And if you are one of them, then it is imperative to ensure few pointers. Before you begin, there are a few things to keep in mind. First off, the rectum can accommodate about 5-7 inches without any problem, but different people will have different “limits”. So use the information below as the precautionary measure as most of the recipients of anal sex actually open stated that they never enjoyed it all – discarding gays or lesbian inclinations.

Second, there is normally not a significant amount of feces in the rectum except when you actually have to go to the bathroom. So unless you feel as though you’re about to need a bowel movement you generally don’t have to worry too much about pulling something out all covered with…stuff. Having said that, though, there is still the possibility that when something that has been in your butt comes out, it may have some small amount of fecal material on it. If it does, wipe/wash it off – it’s that simple. It’s a good idea to clean your back end itself with soap and water before doing anything related to anal sex, so be sure you take that step before getting started with any of the instructions below.

Finally, you may occasionally hear some misinformation about anal sex leading to inability to have normal bowel movements or “hold stuff in.” This is absolute nonsense. Think about it: The anus is a muscle – exercising it will only strengthen it if anything, so long as you don’t try to shove something way huge into it and tear it. Note that there are really two distinct muscles in the anus – the exterior one you can control, and the interior one, which is an involuntary muscle. The interior one is the one that gives the most trouble when doing anal. The key is to learn to relax it and get it accustomed to having something going *in*.

The most important thing you need to do to enjoy anal sex is to get into the mindset that you are going to enjoy being pounded in the ass. Period. And if it pains you and you never enjoy – DO NOT INDULGE IN THE ACT.

On the contrary, if you want it then you will have problems enjoying it as much as you could if you just cannot get over the fact that anal sex is dirty, disgusting, bad for your health, etc. The anus is one of the most nerve intensive area of your body, and anal play can add SO MUCH to your sex life if you just let it. However, there are risks involve it.

Some adventurous guys persist on having anal sex with female partners. Though they seem to be at lower risk end. The risk might be higher at the receiver’s end. Does having sex really that harmful ? lets check this out.

Anal Sex Problems?

There are some unique risks that come with anal sex that you need to know about in order to prevent them from happening to you. These include:

  • Tearing Tissue

The lining of the anal canal and rectum are thinner and more easily torn than inside the vagina. Since there is no natural lubrication, there is no protection from friction. Starting slow, and using lots of lubricant, is essential for safe anal sex.

  • Tearing Muscle

It’s not common, but the sphincter muscles, as any muscle, can tear. Tears can heal and be repaired, but paying attention to your body, going slow and never forcing anything in to the anus is also essential for safe anal sex.

  • Vacuum Effect

When you insert something without a flared base in to the anus, it can slip up and out of reach, requiring sometimes surgical intervention. Always use toys designed for anal penetration.

  • Lack of Sensation

Since there are few nerve endings once you get higher in to the rectum, you won’t necessarily feel pain right away if there is tearing. You may not feel it. It’s important to pay attention to your body during and after having anal sex (particularly if it’s vigorous) and see a doctor if you experience lasting pain following anal sex.

  • Fecal Contamination

No matter how much you clean beforehand, anal sex will always involve contact with some fecal matter. There are many ways of internally and externally passing fecal matter to other parts of your body that can cause serious health risks. Always use condoms and gloves, and wash up well before and after anal sex.

Excessive Lubrication Required

“Possible side effects from anal sex include: bleeding from tears in the anal skin, easier transmission of sexually transmitted disease, vaginal infections if you have anal sex before vaginal sex (not recommended), irritation of penile skin and infection if skin tears occur. Since the anal canal does not lubricate like the vagina with sexual stimulation, it is very important to use water-based lubrication. Also keep in mind that genital warts and herpes can both occur in the anal area, and if anal warts extend into the rectum there is a higher chance of getting anal/rectal cancers. I recommend using condoms for all sexual contact to minimize these risks for both partners”  suggested Cheryl Hadley in response to query posed on harmful effects of anal  sex

Anal sex in and of itself is not that dangerous, despite what a lot of old books and other people may say, including science journals. Like most sexual activities, anal sex can be safe and pleasurable, as long as it’s done properly, but still there’s no process to make it 100% secure and safe sex, though some even argue that its unnatural to have anal sex as it is not made originally to perform sex. The bottom line is avoid this, to be on a safer side, if you have girlfriend whom you love too much and not think her off as a sex toy.

Aftercare Anal Sex

You are already enjoying anal sex with any problem. And behave like a complete giver for your lover then remember to take good care of your butt, as that is the only orifice that can discharge toxic and undigested foods from your body. It keeps you healthy.

If due to excessive penetration it is hurting and you’ve finished a round of anal sex, go to the bathroom and clean up. If he came inside you without a condom, you’ll probably need to evacuate your rectum. When you wipe yourself clean, it’s possible that you might see some blood on the tissue. That’s not uncommon for the first time or two, especially if your guy has a larger than average penis or you’ve used some larger toys (or maybe gotten a bit more vigorous than you perhaps should have). Be sure and wash anything that’s been in your ass with soap and warm water as well, including his penis if he went in without a condom. Remember, if you DO NOT ENJOY it DO NOT GO FOR ANAL SEX!

    I feel bothered when we are having anal sex with my bf because i smell something and sometimes something comes out from there. Is it normal? But he is never bothered with it. I don’t know if he is just pretending though i see how sincere he is when it comes to how he feels.
