Anal sex is a form of sexual intercourse where the penis is inserted into the anus of a sexual partner. This form of sex is common in both gay and straight relationships.
Although some people view anal sex as taboo, it can be enjoyable for couples if practiced with care. Both men and women have many erotic nerve endings in their anal area, and anal sex is just another way for consenting adults to add some extra spice to their sex life.
Anal sex may also be known as butt sex or rectal sex.

Lubrication is an absolute must as, unlike the vagina, the anus is not self-lubricating, and penetration without lubrication can easily cause tears and cuts, which may lead to infection.
There are several health risks associated with anal sex that must be considered. The risk of the transmission of some STDs like AIDS is higher with anal sex, as is the risk of a viral or bacterial infection, mainly if vaginal or oral sex follows anal sex.
