i performed analingus on my girlfriend (of 3 years) recently after we both showered. it wasn't planned, but it drove her crazy. i was just wondering what the risks are with this act, when performed without protection. are the risks less when specific care is taken to clean the anal area?

And also... http://www.scarleteen.com/sexuality/safer_3.html

"Analingus (or "rimming"): Dental dam or saran wrap barrier"

Is how to avoid the above nasty nasty problems.

i checked there before, and that doesn't answer my question. im concerned with what the risks are of doing this with someone you know is free from stds.

first off, to be sure that your partner is clean, you need to be monogamous for a full year (many STDs have really long incubation periods and some won't show up for at least 6 months), and fully screened for STDs every 6 months.

after you have that out of the way, well, i suppose this comes as no surprise, but feces harbor loads of bacteria (dead bacteria can make up half of the total volume of one "dump"). It only takes a teensy, microscopic speck of the stuff to cause infection. you can become contaminated with E. coli (a common and deadly bacteria found in feces) if it gets into your mouth. other bacteria can do the same thing, but E. coli is especially dangerous if it's in the wrong place at the right time.

So do yourself and your partner a favor and use a lubricant and a dental dam or cling film for rimming. it's worth the trouble.

If you think about it, most of the problems with meat these days, come from the unsanitary practices at abbatoirs. They effectively mix meat and faecal matter. (Sometimes vegetarianism really sounds smarter...)

You get sick from eating other animals poo, so you can certainly get sick from your own.
