Anal sex and ejaculation

According to statistics, anal sex is practiced by a much larger number of people than can be assumed. For example, in the USA, 44% of men and 36% of women aged 15-44 have at least once tried anal coition with a partner of the opposite sex.

And the National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles periodically held in the UK in 2013 showed that % of practitioners of anal sex with partners of the opposite sex doubled over the past 20 years.

How much anal sex is physiological?

The rectum is not adapted for sexual intercourse:

  • the rectal mucosa, unlike the vagina, does not produce a lubricant (lubricant);
  • covered with a single-layer prismatic epithelium, which is more easily injured than the stratified squamous epithelium of the vagina;
  • anal coition is considered the most risky form of sexual behavior, because, firstly, it is very often unprotected (why protect yourself if you do not get pregnant through the rectum), and secondly, damage to the mucosa of the rectum and anal canal (which happens quite often ) increases the likelihood of infection.
    As a result, the risk of transmission including HIV, HPV, viral hepatitis, etc. very tall.

The greatest likelihood of HIV infection is with unprotected anal sex compared with vaginal and oral.

The likelihood of HPV transmission makes anal sex for a passive participant a risk factor for cancer of the anal canal.

Do not forget about such less formidable, but not too pleasant infections like chlamydia, gonorrhea and others, which can successfully affect the rectum.

Therefore, if you do not have information about the presence / absence of your sexual partner of any infections, your sex should be protected. Always use condoms, this is your life and health.

Important! If you practice several types of sex at the same time (anal, vaginal, oral), then a condom change is necessary when changing the type of sex.

If the sex is unprotected, the sexual partner needs to wash the genitals after contact with the contents of the rectum.

Can anal sex lead to the development of fecal incontinence and gas?

Anal sex is currently not a proven risk factor for anal incontinence.

There is very little research on the effect of anal sex on holding function. And they show a higher incidence of anal incontinence in men and women who practice anal coitus, but the question requires further study – so far the evidence is not conclusive enough.
