Anal sex can’t get u pregnant but its more dangerous for HIV
“Is anal sex ‘safe sex’?”
Some teens think of anal sex as ‘safe sex’ because you are less likely to get pregnant than with vaginal sex. The truth is that STDs can easily be passed during unprotected anal sex. The anus doesn’t produce natural wetness (lubrication) like the vagina does and so can easily get small tears in it during anal sex. These small tears make it very easy to pass some STD’s into the person’s body (like HIV!).
Because of this, it’s very important to use a lubricated condom each and every time you have anal sex. You can also use additional lubricant to condoms to help prevent tears. You can get lubricated condoms at the grocery store, drug store, some gas stations and at a clinic near you. You can also get testing and treatment information for HIV and other STDs at the clinic.
