Ian: So anal sex is definitely becoming less of a taboo and more couples are engaging in it, but what are the health risks? Logan: Important to remember that anal sex just like anything else does come with sexual health risks, if unprotected. So you have to be using condoms. There's a risk of sexually transmitted infections. And possibly if someone's not using enough lubricant, anal tearing, which not only is incredibly painful but can also lead to infections later on. We can't forget anal sex can be pleasurable but it must be protected. Ian: And I think it is something you should take slowly. You should begin with manual stimulation of the area. There are also sex toys that can help. And for me I would say the key is lubrication -- lubrication and communication. Logan: Absolutely. Lubrication is essential. And talking to your partner and making sure that at every step he or she is comfortable with what you're doing. Because if they're not, than anal sex is never going to feel good and it is not something that should be part of your sexual repertoire. Ian: No, it could lead to discomfort. It could lead to damage butt. It can also be done safely and in a way that is a lot of fun. Logan: I mean you can also engage in anal sex and stimulate the clitoris at the same time. So there is certainly the potential for pleasure if you keep talking and you're safe. Ian: Yeah, it is definitely true. More couples are definitely doing it, enjoying it. And just do it carefully and always with a lot of communication. And if you want more sex tips, just check out more videos in this series.
