When to get tested? While lots of people enjoy it, many others would prefer to leave it out of their sexual activities. The lining of the anus is thin and can easily be damaged, which makes it more vulnerable to infection. Also use a fresh one if you are swapping between anal and vaginal stimulation. Don't use your partner's semen also known as cum as a lubricant. Using condoms is the best way to make sure you are always protected properly against STIs and pregnancy. For lots of people anal sex is a pleasurable part of their sex life.
Remember that you can pause or stop at any point you want.
