Because anal sex involves stimulation of the anus, there is a good chance of contact with waste products (poop). It’s a good idea for a partner receiving anal sex to take a trip to the toilet (and possibly a shower) before engaging in any sex. If the receiver has recently made a bowel movement and has a healthy digestive system (no diarrhea, constipation etc) only small amounts of waste products will remain in the anus & rectum. It is critical to thoroughly clean the penis afterwards, especially before engaging in vaginal intercourse or receiving oral sex. Remember – always use a condom and lots of water-based lube to ensure that the condom doesn’t tear. Anal sex is considered a high risk behavior for STI transmission.
- I have been having a weird yellow discharge come out of my vagina for about a week now…
- I had sex with my boyfriend a few days after using the Depo injection and we did not use protection…
- I’ve had Nexplanon for about 9 months now, and I’m ALWAYS on my period. What can I do to stop this constant bleeding?
- I stopped taking my Depo injections. Is there a non-hormonal method me and my partner can use?
