It’s that time again, time for Americans to pick a new president. News of the primaries and caucuses reminds viewers of the last presidential campaign season. Back then, life was simpler, and anal sex was still too taboo to write about despite its growing popularity in the bedroom. A 2012 post in Salon broke the silence and called for more science reports about anal sex and health.

That year, Dr. Ruth gave tips for anal penetration after getting a large uptick in questions about it. She said to use plenty of lube and to avoid having vaginal sex after anal sex, because of the risk of introducing pathogens into the vagina. Sometime later, Jewrotica writers taught that Judaism allows couples to engage in anal sex.

While anal sex is a topic that adult content distributors such as m-porn.xxx have never really shied away from, the mainstream world is only just getting to grips with the idea of it now. Now that entering through the back door is socially acceptable, it is easier to find advice on having anal sex. Trying a dildo in the anus to see how it feels before agreeing to the real thing is a good idea. Having a partner one can trust is also important. In addition to the risk of transferring microbes from the anus to the vagina, anal sex can pass on sexually transmitted infections from one partner to another. The delicate wall of the rectum tears relatively easily, making it possible for pathogens to take root there. For this reason, condoms are recommended to couples having anal sex just like sexy people on websites similar to teeni.xxx.

The Center for Disease Control quantified the relative risk of transmitting HIV through different sexual acts. They found that receiving anal sex is more than ten times riskier than receiving vaginal sex. Wearing a condom cuts the risk of transmission by about 80%, which means that anal sex with a condom is still riskier than vaginal sex without a condom.

Although younger women in New York City are more likely to have unprotected anal sex compared to their mothers’ generation, most young ladies play it safe. Only 11% of New York City women age 18 to 24 reported having anal sex without a condom during a 2010 survey conducted by the city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. That department encourages readers to take advantage of the free HIV testing, condoms, and lube that the city provides.

The biology of anal sex has remained the same even as attitudes towards it have changed. It goes without saying that keeping bedroom fun within the bounds of a committed relationship is an effective way to make it safer. Condoms help, but they do not completely eliminate the risks associated with anal sex. Therefore, it’s prudent to reserve that route for a partner who will treat it gently and do his best keep it healthy.
