It is possible to cause damage to your anus, but I think that's only if you do it a lot.
If you're not comfortable doing it, then don't

anal sex effects
Hi angelicalibis
Thanks for your sharing information. could you tell us that for how long you are enjoying anal sex? what I want to know that, that is there some effect on female health
(Good or Bad)after long time doing this. Did you notice some changes in your body? like some people say that anal sex enhance buttocks and other believe that it fear female skin and glow her face. On the other hand some researcher say that it may effect female immune system after some time and invite savoir diseases.

um o.o wow, ok.. um... well I am not sexually active at this point in time, but I would say the longest period I ever had anal sex daily was three months, 1-3 times daily. I do notice that it tones the buttocks. It sounds strange, but anal sex is a great cure for diarrhea. Of course, you don't want to do it if you have a severe case, but if you catch it when it is first coming on, etc, and have anal sex it will go away. Also I never have diarrhea the entire time I am anally- sexually active. I'm not trying to be crass by discussing bowel functions. I've heard that anal sex can actually cause someone to lose bowel function. I think they would have to do something extremely abnormal in order for this to happen. The sphincter naturally tightens after anal sex. The "gaping" that you see in porn movies can happen, but it is exaggerated. It's happened to me a few times after being with someone with a wide penis intimately for a long period of time, only a slight bit, and closes within minutes. So I think to cause this to happen to an extreme, someone would have to deliberately stretch the sphincter large scale for a very long time. I have never been torn, or had any lasting injury. If you have a wide partner you may ache a little until you are used to it. Personally, I like this sensation, it is a very slight, dull ache. Not a normal kind of pain. Also if your partner is long I would not reccommend taking the entire length because you will get awful stomach pains the next morning. It won't hurt you, its just your insides moving back into place. You can take it all briefly if you are really enjoying yourself, or curious. I think you can take about 6-7 inches without fear of stomachache.
The worst experience I ever had with anal sex was when my boyfriend slipped and fell on me when he was trying to penetrate me. It hurt so bad that I punched him, but there was no lasting damage.

Effects on Anal Sex
Anal sex can expose participants to two principal dangers: infections due to the high number of infectious microorganisms not found elsewhere on the body, and physical damage to the anus and the rectum due to their fragility. Increased experimentation with anal sex by young persons without sound knowledge about risks and what safety measures do and don't work may be linked to an increase in sexually transmitted infections.[82] Judy Kuriansky, a Columbia University professor and author, stated, "It really is shocking how many myths young people have about anal sex. They don't think you can get a disease from it because you're not having [vaginal] intercourse."[83]

Infection


Mucous membranes of the rectum.
Unprotected anal sex, colloquially known as "barebacking",[84] carries an elevated risk of passing on sexually transmitted diseases because the anal sphincter is delicate, easily-torn tissue; a tear can provide an entry for pathogens. The high concentration of white blood cells around the rectum, together with the risk of tearing and the rectum's function to absorb fluid, places those who engage in unprotected anal sex at high risk of sexually transmitted infection. Use of condoms, ample lubrication to reduce the risk of tearing,[33][34] and other safer sex practices reduce the risk. However, a condom can break or come off during anal sex, so both sex partners must remain watchful during sex and there is still some risk if one or both partners carries a sexually-transmissible infection.[85]

Unprotected receptive anal sex is considered the sex act most likely to result in HIV transmission.[86][87][88][89] Other infections that can be transmitted by unprotected anal sex are human papilloma virus (HPV) (which can increase risk of anal cancer[90] and typhoid fever),[91]amoebiasis; chlamydia; cryptosporidiosis; E. coli infections; giardiasis; gonorrhea; hepatitis A; hepatitis B; hepatitis C; herpes simplex; Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (HHV-Cool;[92]lymphogranuloma venereum; Mycoplasma hominis; Mycoplasma genitalium; pubic lice; salmonellosis; shigella; syphilis; tuberculosis; and Ureaplasma urealyticum.[17][93][94][95]

Cancer

Anal cancer is relatively rare, accounting for about 1 percent of gastrointestinal malignancies, but as many as 4,000 new cases can be diagnosed within a year in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society.[96][97] Most cases of anal cancer are related to infection with the human papilloma virus (HPV).[96][97] Anal sex alone does not cause anal cancer; the risk of anal cancer through anal sex is attributed to HPV infection, which is often contracted through unprotected anal sex. The incidence of the disease has jumped 160% in men and 78% in women in the last thirty years, according to a 2004 American study. The increase is attributed to changing trends in sexual behavior (such as a history of multiple sex partners, fifteen or more, or receptive anal sex) and smoking. If a current smoker, there is a fourfold increase in risk, though independent of other behavioral risk factors, such as sexual activity. Receptive anal sex increases the incidence sevenfold.[97] Among the female control group studied, 21.5 percent had reported practicing anal sex, a significant increase from a previous case-control study by epidemiologist Janet Daling (PhD, member of Fred Hutchinson's Public Health Sciences Division) and her colleagues, published in 1987, in which 11 percent of female controls had reported ever having anal sex. This and other studies also indicate that gay or bisexual sex among men is on the rise, which may account for the increase in anal cancer.[97] "The sharpest increase was among African American men, whose incidence of anal cancer has more than doubled in the past three decades. Black men also had a lower survival rate from the disease." The study reported that the five-year survival rate for black men with early stage disease was 62 percent as compared to 79 percent for white men with localized cancer. However, the survey also reported that black men were more likely than white men to report having had intercourse with another male in the last year. Regarding all the increases, whether or not sexual practices have changed, Daling, concluded, "[I]t also could be that people are just more likely to discuss their sexual behavior these days".[97]

Physical damage

Physical damage to the rectum and anus can manifest as generalized ano-rectal trauma, anal fissures,[17]rectal prolapse, and exacerbating hemorrhoids.[98] Adequate lubrication and preparation reduces the risk of physical trauma,[99] while the risk increases with use of alcohol or other drugs that dull sensitivity.

Loss of bowel control is not a highly likely result of anal sex, but may be caused by repeated injury or the insertion of large objects.[100][full citation needed][101]Kegel exercises have been recommended to maintain muscle tone by a speaker at the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality and the American Association of Sex Educators, who noted he had never personally observed "loosening" in any of his patients.[102]

A 1993 study published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine found that fourteen out of a sample of forty men receiving anal intercourse experienced episodes of frequent anal incontinence.[103] However, a 1997 study published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology found no difference in levels of incontinence between homosexual men who engaged in anal sex and heterosexual men who did not, and criticized the earlier study for its inclusion of flatulence in its definition of incontinence.[104]

Basically this is how "I" feel if you have a rubber band you stretch it out a couple times you may notice it loosen a little but after a while it'll never be its original size meaning you may see no results now but you have to understand our rectum is fragile after a while it will never go back to normal tight size same in conclusion girl if a guy is comfortable enough to put it in your behind then he is with the wrong gender then he needs to check into gay community it's your body darling you do as you please....No Offense on any party of opinion

There is only one difference of course, a rubber band is a dead piece of rubber. The anal sphincter is a muscle that can be exercised and toned like any other muscle in your body. You may think this is not a signifficantly difference between a rubber band and a muscle, but you will be wrong.

Being gay does not depend on if you like anal sex or vaginal sex. It has to do with the gender of the person you are having sex with. It is just pure laziness in your thought process that equates the two.

I dont really know the number, but the most hubby and I have done it was about once a week maybe 5 times a month and I havent had any bad affects. I think it depends on what you do...like if you have rough anal sex and if you use dildos or toys on a regular basis. I know you can stretch it out A LOT if you want to. I guess just try and see what keeps you comfortable. I cant do it every day or else I will get a little sore so we usually wait a couple days to do it again.

There are ways to avoid any risks of anal sex but things need to be taken very slow. Injury happens when a penis is repeatedly inserted through a contracted sphincter, which then causes tears. The more tears you have the higher your risks for incontinence (which, isn't really that common).

So before you start make sure you have lube, condoms, and if fingers are involved then make sure the nails are clipped. When you start make sure you apply lube to both the penis and anus. When he enters have him go slowly and right when you start to feel discomfort then have him stop but not pull out. Within 30 seconds or so your muscles will tire out and relax. After that you should be good.

Try a position where you're on top so you can control it a little better and after you get the muscles to relax then you can do other positions.

I am new to Anal sex and the first time was horrid because i am really sensitive but my husband really wanted to try it since we are experimental and i am his first person to have intercourse with, the next couple of times it still sucked cause we used cooling lube and it made me feel like my butt was on fire. We do the 69 position because i can still be in control but if i slip his penis will just slip out and not farther in. I was looking at this site because i needed some advice on the pros and the cons and just the help in general

It's not really dangerous but if you had any problems with your anus in the past I would not recommend anal sex. Buy a good anal lube and thin condoms (I'd recommend Durex extra sensitive condoms, they have never let me down). I would not recommend position on top, try laying on your stomach first it's much easier, in my opinion.

If you don't feel comfortable don't do it, it is something you have to want for yourself, a suggestion try a small toy first if you dont enjoy it dont do it, its your choice to make.

i personnal like anal sex. But like some of the other people have said u have to feel comfortable with it. I never thought i would like it, but once we tryd it, i enjoyd it. I have found the best postition for me is doggy style, lots of lube and my fiance always fingers it first then we do it. I wish you the best of luck with it.

With anal sex, condoms and lube are a must. Make sure he starts out slow... very slow ; it can, and probably will hurt the first time. The best thing I can say is to relax because if you tense up he will not be able to insert it comfortably inside of you. I know from experience.
If you switch to vaginal, change condoms, you can get infections.

some guys aim to damage the girl's anus because they want her to feel sore the next day, its a domination thing. in this case, often the penetration is sudden and sometimes the penetration is repeated several times where the penis is pulled out and shoved beck in again. this feels great for the guy because the anus is really tight as the beginning, and it will probably damage the sphincter. if the anal sex is hard, the girl will have a sore anus sometimes for days and may not be able to walk straight, which is the aim for some guys. often the girl is drunk when this happens, and she will wake up with a hangover and a sore anus.

The above poster was very honest in what he just said...This is the action of some male species with an unsuspecting female in this position...You know caveman....Hopefully a girl/woman is reading his post and will be more prepared for this vicious attack on her...I know of a woman who had this done to her...This was after her boyfriend had been watching some Porn...He had a few drinks which must have given him in his eyes, a more macho male image...He tore her badly...She was 37 years old...I would say that any girl/woman that allows this, make sure he knows the rules and takes it easy....

yes deifantely...any sexual experimentation should be done on a sober basis...anal sex is something very private. Its in a way sacred to men and women and hopefully not something thats painful and scary

But this happens a lot. I was accidentaly penetrated by an ex...he played it off like he didnt mean to...it was a horrible feeling for me.

Seriously, did god tell you himself that we where not supposed to have anal sex. I'm going to take a wild guess and NO. I bet you have given a blow job before, so was the mouth intended for that reason. People have been having anal sex for ages even back in those days, I'm sure we weren't the first to discover the tight hole close to the vagina, just saying, anal sex can be completely harmless if done properly. K thanks

All good for you to say that, but it is your opinion. I am sure that the penis may very well be meant for the vagina, but I am also sure that there are MANY women who do not orgasm from vaginal sex, sometimes even clitoral sex. If a woman likes the feeling from anal sex, then she has the RIGHT to have anal sex. Sex is meant to FEEL good. And if anal sex feels good, go for it. Just be sure to take it slow and use lube. And if it is not your cup of tea, then don't do it.

you have a hemorrhoid. this is a common side effect of anal sex because men like to jack hammer as soon as their penis is inside something. this is why you shouldn't have anal sex. because most of the time it isn't done properly, and women end up with severe problems. anyone here ever heard of anal prolapse? it's where your colon falls out through your anus due to the sphincter being too stretched out. practice anal sex very carefully people. know the risks before you do it.

If u really wants to enjoy it, relax yourself and take it slowly and in a minute you are there.I do it like once in 3-4 months but anytime i do it i feel different and the feeling is quite different from vagina sex.I love it so much because my partern is slow with it at the begining. Is a nice experience

I can't get off on anal sex either. But a LOT of women don't even orgasm with oral or vaginal sex. The body is a mystery. But yes, women can have vaginal orgasms (does not involve the clitoris) so if you can have a vaginal orgasm, I guess its possible to have an anal orgasm...ah the good ol' mysterious body.

A ball? Like internal or external? If it is external, then it could be swelling or a hemorrhoid. Even internal it could be a hemorrhoid. Or, maybe fecal matter that is impacted. If I were you, I would check with my doctor. Also, if anal sex does not feel good to you, don't do it. Especially if it causes you pain.
