Anal Sex
 
My fiance and I have been doing a "type" of anal sex, but then for the first time today I heard that it can kill you. However, it would be wonderful to continue doing it this way since I do not want to get pregnant yet. What is the safest way not to die from anal penetration?

Hi there,

I didn't realize there were different 'types' of anal sex. You're probably going to have to explain which way is the type that can kill you because I've never heard of this.

Any type of aggressive anal penetration [I]may[/I] potentially result in a tear, which [I]may[/I] result in an infection which [I]may[/I] result in ... (etc. etc. worst case scenario). But unless you explain what 'type' you mean, we'd just be guessing.

As for using it as birth control, have you considered actual birth control? Or outercourse? or oral sex? These are also viable options.

Anal sex doesn't completely prevent pregnancy. Semen can still get into the vagina and you could potentially get pregnant.

I'm also curious which "type" of anal you are referring to?

What your referring to, I believe is the lower part of the bowel being torn form anal sex or the wall of the rectum tearing, yes this does happen, and in women where the sex organs and gastrointestinal tract are so close together, there is a possibility that anal sex can cause damage to these organs, it is a possiblity that one can cause the wall of the lower bowel to tear emptying into the body cavity, which can cause sepsis, which could be fatal. It's technically referred to as a "Colonic Rupture leading to Peritonitis" which is possibly fatal

This is very, very rare. There are dangerous possibilities to everything. And as the other poster said, anal sex does not stop you from becoming pregnant. Sperms are tough lil buggers and can live a short while outside the body, if your boyfriend pulls out or semen flows out and gets in your vagina you can get pregnant.

The key to anal sex is just be gentle, use lubricant and just like any type of intercourse always use a condom!
