Dangers of anal sex?
Posted on: 06/20/2003
Why is it bad to have anal sex before vaginal sex? what type of infections, ect., could occur?
Anal sex is dangerous because there is less lubrication and the tissue inside your anus is very easily ripped (meaning there is blood and semen - bodily fluid exchange), making it easier to get any sexually transmitted infections that your sexual partner might have. There is also fecal material, which can transmit hepatitis. Anal sex should always include water-based lubricant (like KY jelly) and condoms.
