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.
- Can you get an STI through oral sex?
- Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex for two days straight on the 11th and 14th of August. About how many days does it take to find out if you’re 100% pregnant or not?
- If I’m using the birth control patch, can my boyfriend ejaculate inside me without getting me pregnant? I need a very specific answer!
- Is it really safe to shave down there? I was just concerned.
