Anal sex can be a safe and pleasurable activity when done correctly. 

 

Penetrative anal sex has a higher risk of spreading STIs than many other types of sexual activity. This is because the lining of the anus is thin and can be easily damaged, which makes it more vulnerable to infection.

It is important to ☔use a condom and a water-based lubricant to reduce the risk of infection and tearing. It is also important to go slowly and use plenty of lubricants to reduce the risk of discomfort or pain. As for how often you can do it, that is up to you and your partner. It is important to listen to your body and take breaks if needed.
