A male reader, Avg Man United States +, writes (14 June 2009):

Anal sex can cause long term effects like hemmorrhoids and fissures (see wiki article on anal fissures). It can also affect bowel movements and cause spasm pain/bruising. Remember that the anus and rectum were designed for one purpose...expelling poop. With all that being said, here are some other tid bits shared on other websites and blogs.

Millions of heterosexuals (women and men) enjoy anal play. By anal play, I mean massaging the outer anus, having a finger inserted (sometimes during oral sex), or inserting butt plugs, dildos or male penis. Some enjoy holding a vibrator around the opening other simply enjoy rubbing the opening with your finger. This is a very sensitive area.

Now, you must be careful when partaking in such an activity, because the membranes that line the anal cavity are so very delicate. Make sure anal play is periodic and not constant...and that the area is well lubricated. A special product designed for anal use is Doc Johnson's Anal Lube.

The more you "play down there" the more at risk for long term side effects.

I can’t stress the importance of communicating this desire with your partner. And for all those who have been approached with the situation and have been turned away by it, I can guarantee it’s been out of ignorance.

So many people out there believe it is taboo to partake in such an act. Devout Christians consider it soddoming... especially when shared amongst homosexual partners.

Remember the old adage: All things in moderation...and you (and your partner) should be fine.

yes, unfortunately she could loose control of her sphincter muscle from tears and stretching. This is what keeps her poop in ..... some gay men have to resort to using tampons. She could also develop hemmoroids, either way......Not a pleasant thought. The anus wasn't made for sex, the vagina was, that's why there isn't any natural lubricants produced by the back door.

Tisha-1 agony auntWell, I don't really know what the long term effects might be, so I can only advise that she have a chat with her doctor about it. As long as you're using lubrication, practice immaculate hygiene and she's comfortable, I don't have much else to offer here.

Good luck!

Stayc63088 agony auntAlright, I have never had anal sex before, so I looked this up for you. The main problem in dealing with anal sex is the higher risk in transmitting sexually transmitted diseases. Always use a condom. Also, do not go from anal to mouth, aside from being... disgusting... you can have serious problems resulting from doing this. "Anal intercorse can cause damage to tissue, muscle strength, and can cause serious damage if not properly approached. YOU MUST be very comfortable, gentle, lubricated, and take it from me -- it can be absolutely the most wonderful thing if you and your partner study this issue. Otherwise you will become frustrated, damaged, injured and so many other things." (answers.yahoo.com) So make sure you are using plenty of lubricant and to listen and at the slightest sign of pain, stop. Hope I helped you out.
