As an update to this, the rash turned out to be caused by rectal chlamydia, which most of the time, shows no symptoms. I tested negative, but through (over)analyzing, we think that going back and forth, and 'double dipping' may have transmitted it. Glad its figured out but anytime the health of you or your partners are in questions, its a lot scarier than you think it will be.View Thread
Understood, but the crux of my question is having accepted the risks of not using condoms, is there any additional risk from going from ass to ass, vs say, vag to vag or mouth to mouth, etc? Thanks for your input.View Thread
Hello - First Post here. Good finding these boards.
I had a sexual health question that I can't find an answer to so thought I would post here. I am a male with a female partner who enjoys anal sex, which we do frequently, and are comfortable not using protection. We have on one occasion had another female partner join us, who also enjoys anal sex, and she was also comfortable being together with us without protection, except for the act of going directly from one ass to another, which she didn't allow without washing first (eventhough there was nothing visibly dirty).
Through research (and common sense) I know that you should never go from anal to vaginal because you are spreading bacteria, and I've read that during group sex you should change the condom when switching partners, but in our case when we are comfortable not using condoms, I haven't found any advice on this.
Clearly I do not want anyone to get ill, but I am questioning whether there are specific risks from going from one woman's ass directly to another? Doesn't seem to be anything additionally risky about this, and it really does interrupt things having to stop, so seeking some advice here. Anything would be appreciated. Thanks.View Thread
