What is Anal Sex?

Anal sex is where a man's penis enters the anus of his partner (female or male). It's important to use condoms when having anal sex as it is still possible to transmit sexually transmitted infections and also for a woman to get pregnant if seamen comes in to contact with the vagina. It is also important to use water-based lubricant for anal sex because the anus isn't self-lubricating. To find out more and to get free advice and condoms you can visit your local clinic or speak to your GP. For more information about how you can make anal sex safer look here.
