Hi, I came across this posting because I wanted to check the safety of exploring this myself. I'm 44 and I hope I'm still enjoying an active a sex life as you to obviously have.
I enjoy anal sex to, in fact love it but my partner and I discussed swapping back and forth. In my early 20s I was taken to hospital with serious pain, I'd had to crawl to my parents room in the middle of the night for help. I hadn't had anal just normal sex. A thorough examination had me screaming in pain as I'd an infection in my fallopian tubes. As a young woman particularly this terrified me as scaring could cause fertility issues later on. Three weeks of antibiotics put me right but it was so painful and not an experience I'd like to repeat. Who knows what caused it, I was told just a small spec of dirt entering me could have done it. Thankfully fertility wasn't an issue I have two beautiful children. Reading your post though and those that followed made me realise that however much I want to be able to do this for the sake of my health it's probably not worth it. So we'll buy some new toys, we fancy a sex swing as well and carry on enjoying what we do now.
Thank you so much for posting so honestly, it's good for people to be able share experiences openly. xView Thread
