Anal sex - I wondered if there are any dangers for a female taking part in regular anal sex with her boyfriend?
The main risk is that the sphincter (the ring of muscle that helps to control the passage of wind and faeces) may become rather lax over time.
Make sure that you are relaxed, that your partner uses plenty of lubrication and you should practice safer sex precautions too, of course. Stronger condoms are recommended for anal sex. Look at the condomania site for the different choices of condoms.
