This isn't meant to scare you into avoiding anal sex entirely; it's just to motivate you to take the proper precautions if you're going to do it. Skip navigation! Story from Sex. There are two rules that anyone having anal sex has hopefully heard before: First, always use lube ; second, don't go straight from anal sex to vaginal sex. But if you're someone with a vagina who is having anal sex, then there's a good chance that sometimes you have anal sex and vaginal sex in one sexual encounter, so it's important to understand exactly why this second rule exists and how to make it work for you.
Whether you regularly have anal sex or not, it's probably something you thought about or considered. Here, some guys get really real about how anal and vaginal sex compare for them. I don't enjoy it as much as vaginal because you also have to prepare a lot for it. It's a much more vulnerable area than the vagina and I can't go as fast or powerful when doing anal. The novelty wore off on me as soon as I got in a very serious relationship, and wasn't hopping from partner to partner.
I read some articles that say even if both partners are monogomous, condoms should be used. Reading your insights gave me much relief. Question I have is that we like to start out with his penis in my vagina for a few minutes, then he withdraws and puts in my ass, then he puts it back in my vagina. Is this safe? I know once he puts it back into my vagina, the penis should be washed off.
My girlfriend and I have been together for about three years and we were both tested last year for all sexually transmitted diseases STD — as we both had genital warts. All tests came back negative. I recently had unprotected anal sex with her and then unprotected vaginal sex immediately afterwards. Is there any way we could pick up an STD or anything else from doing this? If so what would you recommend to reduce the risk?
