This is a very misunderstood sexual topic. Many of the myths around it are based on lack of information and knowledge.

This sexual practice can be a very pleasurable way to spice up your sex life if done right, but it can also be a very dangerous act if done wrong...

So, let’s find out the truth about anal sex, and break up or confirm the biggest myths that are around it, so you can enjoy anal sex with your partner in a safe and proper manner.

6 Anal Sex Myths

Myth #1: It’s dangerous

Anal sex can be dangerous or safe depending on how it is performed.

The truth is that the anal canal and anus are not designed to have sex; therefore, if you don’t take the proper precautions, the following dangerous things could happen:

1. The anus doesn’t lubricate itself. If your partner doesn’t provide enough lubrication, it will be very painful for you, and he could end up tearing something inside or outside your anus.

2. The anus is not designed for penetration. If he goes in there too fast and too rough, he will hurt you and even cause some tears and stretching. This area is extremely delicate, and it is NOT the place for rough sex.

3. There’s bacteria normally found in the anus. If he switches from anal sex to vaginal sex, he could spread this bacteria and cause you a vaginal infection.

4. The anus doesn’t have an end like the vagina; therefore, sex toys can get lost in the anus if you guys use the wrong ones, causing a painful, dangerous and embarrassing trip to the hospital.

5. STDs can easily be transmitted through anal sex, so always use protection, even if you are in a monogamous relationship.

All of these sound like anal sex is dangerous indeed, but if you and your partner follow the following 5 golden rules for preventing dangers of anal sex, none of these potential dangers should happen:

5 Golden Rules For Preventing Dangers Of Anal Sex:

1. Never have anal sex without a lubricant, and keep in mind that his spit is not enough lubrication in this case. Always uses lots of a good silicon-based lubricant.

2. He must warm you up with lots of foreplay and relaxation. Make sure he always penetrates you very, very slowly and gently to avoid causing tears. Once his penis his in there, he must never thrust too rough or too fast! Remind him, this is a very delicate area.

3. Never switch from anal sex to vaginal sex, either with his penis, fingers, toys or mouth. Make him change the condom and wash, with warm water and soap, everything that went into your anus before going into your vagina.

4. Use anal sex toys that have a wide, flared base, a cable or ring on the bottom that keeps the toy from sliding too far into your anus.

5. Always use a condom! Even if you are in a monogamous relationship. This keeps things clean and safe.

Myth #2: It’s dirty

Anal sex is not necessarily dirty, but if you want to try it, you have to accept the fact that sometimes can be a little messy, and it’s normal considering the function of the place we are talking about.

However, keep in mind that feces are stored in the bowel, not in the anus, so it shouldn’t be a big of a problem, especially if you make sure to have a bowel movement before having anal sex.

Normal regular hygiene should be enough to keep things under control most of the time; but, even if hygiene is extremely good, it can be messy sometimes.

Makes sure there is enough trust between you and your partner for both of you to accept the fact that it can be messy, and that both of you are ok with it. Try anal sex only if you don’t really mind about this, and you know that your partner is also fine with it.

If you want to keep it even cleaner, he can always use a condom, and you can even use an enema to clean the anal canal before having anal sex.

This is an option of your choice, if you decide to try it, it shouldn’t be done right before anal sex, and it shouldn't become a practice on a regular basis because excessive douching can dry out the anal canal and cause micro-abrasion than can facilitate STDs transmission.

Myth #3: It can cause vaginal infections

Yes, anal sex can cause vaginal infections if he switches from anal sex to vaginal sex.

This is because he would be spreading bacteria from your anus to your vagina. He can easily prevent this by not switching or touching at all, or by changing the condom and/or washing thoroughly his penis, fingers, mouth and toys with warm water and soap before getting in contact with your vagina.

Myth #4: It’s painful

Anal sex can be uncomfortable at the beginning, especially the first few times while you learn how to relax your body, and while your anus starts getting used to the new sensation. Other than that, anal sex shouldn’t be painful, and if it hurts is because something is being done wrong.

In other words: Yes! Anal sex can very painful if it’s NOT done right.

Follow These Rules To Make Sure It’s Pleasurable Instead Of Painful:

1. Uses lots and lots of a good silicone-based anal sex lube.

2. He must relax your mind by assuring you to be extremely gentle. If you trust him, your mind can be relaxed; therefore, your body and the muscles of your anus will not be tensed up - making penetration easier and less painful.

3. He must relax your body will lots of foreplay.

4. Choose a comfortable position for you to relax, and also one that facilitates the access to minimize your discomfort. Doggy style is a good choice.

5. He must relax your butt area with massages, outside with his hands, and inside with his fingers. He should start with his smaller finger and work his way up to the biggest, before inserting a toy or his penis.

6. He can even use a small anal sex toy before his penis, to get you gradually used to the sensation of penetration in your “back door”.

7. Once you’re ready to feel his penis, he must enter you very, very slowly and gently, never thrust you too hard or too fast, and stop if you want to.

Myth #5: It’s wrong

None sexual act between a couple is really wrong, even anal sex, as long as, both partners agree with performing it.

Also, as long as you keep it safe and have good communication about it, it should be fine.

The only wrong thing about anal sex is being forced or pushed to do it. If you don’t want to, or if it hurts, he has to respect that and never try to push you, or doing it by surprise without your consent.

All society myths and taboos about anal sex don't really matter. This is a couple’s choice, and it shouldn’t be affected by what society says about it; just make sure you practice anal sex in a responsible and safe way.

Myth #6: Women don’t enjoy it

Women don’t enjoy anal sex when it hurts, but when they and their partner learn how to perform anal sex properly, and they don’t experience pain anymore, they can start enjoying a wonderful and new world of unique sexual pleasure where the orgasms can be truly mind-blowing!

It’s true that the anus was not designed for sex; but still, it is surrounded by tons of pleasurable nerves that when stimulated, they give the woman extreme pleasure.

Therefore, there are many women who really enjoy anal sex and even crave it.

You can also be one of them, if both of you make sure to take all the precautions to perform it properly and free of pain.

As you can see, when it comes to dangers of anal sex, the myths out there are not 100% truth or false. It actually depends on how you both handle things that these myths can become real or not.
