Common "Anal Sex" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Anal Sex

Although anal sex is highly predominant among homosexual men, it is not uncommon among heterosexual males and females. Male to female, female to male, male to male, and female to female anal sex are prevalent. Women use sex toys and fingers to stimulate men sexually. As the anus has numerous nerve endings, people experience pleasure while getting penetrated, fingered, or during oral-anal sex. Some parts of the world and cultures consider this to be a crime and taboo. It is one of the riskiest sexual practices as there are high chances of infection transmission.
