anal sex

Is it true anal sex can cause anal incontinence or anal cancer? And how far can a penis go into the anus. I've read about people taking 12 or more inches but not sure if true. My partner is 7.5 inches and i wanted to take it all but not sure if i could physically.

HI Anon!

Anal sex is a learn-as-you go process. For some it's too painful, for others it's fine. Do what feels ok for you.

Anal sex can cause rectal incontinence if done over long periods and very frequently because the sphincter muscle is designed to push out, not in. But in other cases it's just fine.

Anal sex itself does not cause cancer but if a person has the HPV virus and has anal sex, anal cancer can occur.
