I've had one my questions answered before and I'd like to thank you for answering it because it was very useful :) Now I've got more! • Sex with my significant other has been wonderful the past few times we've done it, emotionally.

We didn't have sex but we were quite close to doing so and now I'm very worried about the possibility of being pregnant. I was due on my period a week ago and I still haven't come on.

Is anal sex no different?

My boyfriend says that anal sex is no different than regular sex. Is that true? He also says we don't have to use a condom? Also, will I still be a virgin if I have anal sex? Will it hurt as much?...
