Recently, anal sex has become popular amongst people looking to spice up their relationships. Anal sex can feel good because there are a multitude of nerve endings in the anus that when stimulated create a wonderful sensation for some people. However, anal sex has its dangers due to the lack of natural lubrication. As a result, the risk of tearing and pain is much higher when compared to the vagina. Therefore, it is recommended to use lubricants in order to help reduce the amount of friction.
Sex in the anus could cause leakage
Although most couples do not have anal intercourse as we see on sex video chat, it can be perfectly healthy and safe in both the long and short term. As with vaginal intercourse, however, there is a very small risk of leakage and prolapsed over the course of a lifetime. Anal intercourse can also aggravate existing haemorrhoids.
There is little lubrication
The anus does not usually produce enough lubrication for comfortable anal sex, so it’s important to use plenty of lubricant. Go slowly. Stop if anything hurts and let your partner know how you feel sex that’s painful or uncomfortable should not continue.
Vulnerable to infections
Like unprotected vaginal intercourse, unprotected anal intercourse is high-risk for many sexually transmitted infections, such as Chlamydia, gonorrhoea, hepatitis, herpes, HIV, HPV, and syphilis. People who have oral contact with the anus are at high risk of intestinal parasites and hepatitis, so good hygiene is very important
Use of lubricants is advisable
Use latex or female condoms during anal intercourse to decrease the risk of sexually transmitted infections. Make sure to only use water-based lubricants like K-Y jelly or Astroglide with latex condoms. Using an oil-based lubricant, like Vaseline, can damage them and make them break.
