Anal sex or anal intercourse is generally the insertion and thrusting of the erect penis into a person's anus , or anus and rectum , for sexual pleasure. While anal sex is commonly associated with male homosexuality , research shows that not all gay males engage in anal sex and that it is not uncommon in heterosexual relationships. As with most forms of sexual activity, anal sex participants risk contracting sexually transmitted infections STIs. Anal sex is considered a high-risk sexual practice because of the vulnerability of the anus and rectum. The anal and rectal tissues are delicate and do not provide lubrication like the vagina does , so they can easily tear and permit disease transmission, especially if a personal lubricant is not used. Strong views are often expressed about anal sex.

Basic Anal/Rectal Anatomy & Physiology
Your anus is located on your backside, between your butt checks. Your anus is closed off by two rings of muscle: the internal anal sphincter and the external anal sphincter. Around the anus there are 'corpora cavernosa' or masses of erectile tissue that prevent moisture and air from escaping unintentionally. The anus is the last part of the rectum. It is closed off by two rings of muscle called sphincters.
Remember Me. A lot of people, women especially, have less than ideal experiences in their first anal encounters, however, largely from inadequate preparation mental or physical. This often results in years of not wanting to try anything involving butt play again. If you get involved in some of the more elaborate activities like prostate play with a male, or fisting of the anus, other parts of the internal anatomy will be involved. Those will be discussed at the appropriate time, however.
