It's interesting (as shown by the comments above) how someone can be so against anal sex yet has probably never given a second thought to performing oral sex - how hypocritical.

On the issue of STI's however HPV (human papillomavirus) is far more likly to be contracted than AIDS. Affecting approximately 80% of the population, HPV usually has no symptoms which can result in diagnosis coming late and I think we all know that the earlier any condition is diagnosed the more likely for a better outcome. The HPV virus has been shown to cause genital warts which often occur around the anus whether you have had anal sex or not and wearing a condom can only reduce the risk so far.

Any sexually active adult should discuss HPV with their doctor. There is a vaccine available for both men and women up to age 26. HPV is responsible for 99.9% of cervical cancers and effects almost half a million women annally across the globe.

Sexual intimacy between two loving and consenting adults is not something to be ashamed about and it is the lack of education in others which results in the judgmental attitudes we see in society.
