I read on another webpage that, because there is only a thin and rather permeable membrane separating the anal cavity from the vagina, it's possible to et pregnant from anal sex. i know that you should always use a condom anyway, because the risk of STDs is very high, but I was just wondering if that was true.

It's not possible for sperm to somehow swim through the wall between the rectum and the vagina. Check out http://www.scarleteen.com/body/female_anatomy_5.html - the wall really isn't that thin.

However, what is possible is for semen to run out of the anus and get "smeared" into the vagina. So pregnancy can result from anal sex if that happens.
