The anal sex is not only about getting a hard-on but also about having orgasms, said Dr. Prakash Goyal, an expert on sexual health.
“A lot of times people who watch these videos are not aware of how they can be harmful,” said Dr Goyal.
“They can have negative impacts on your sexual health.”
There is a growing body of research showing that anal sex has a negative impact on sexual function, and it has even been linked to the development of anal cancer.
“There are a lot of studies that have found anal sex to be harmful, because it can be extremely uncomfortable,” said Johnathan Rippon, a sexual health therapist who works with a large group of women in Los Angeles.
“It’s not for everyone.”
Dr. Goyal said that if you have an anal partner, it is very important that you talk to them about it.
“Don’t blame them,” he said.
“You have to be willing to take responsibility.”
