Risks with anal sex

“I am being 100% serious. Are there any negative side effects of me having anal sex with my girlfriend? The first time, she said it hurt, yet she still orgasmed.”

A: “Although there is no risk for pregnancy with anal sex there is a risk for sexually transmitted infections including HIV. It is important to use a latex condom with each act of anal sex to help prevent the spread of disease. Also, remember to communicate with your partner.”
