|A baker's dozen on sex|
Anal sex is the act of stimulation or penetration of the anus for sexual pleasure. This is mostly accomplished through the stimulation of the back part of the prostate or clitoris. Some people like it, some don't.  We'd recommend going to sex education for better references on the subject though.
 Endless euphemisms
For now, we'll just remind you: Things can get torn up in there. Lube up, communicate clearly, stop if it hurts - and stop if your partner asks you to - and don't ever stick anything that just came out of a butthole in a mouth or a vagina. That's only for porn stars who can't make payments to their meth dealers.
 Anal sex and homosexuality
Some heterosexuals practice anal sex. Some women who have sex with women, too. And some men who have sex with men. However, many homophobes seem fixated on the idea that anal sex is the big thing about being gay.
Anal sex is common
in countries where a girl's physical virginity (hymen) is highly prized everwhere where people have sex. As such unmarried couples sometimes practice it in Muslim and Middle Eastern countries, notably Turkey. because it feels good.
In the UK, buggery (yes, that's an actual legal term) is still technically illegal between a man and a woman although no one is likely to be prosecuted for it. Comedian Stewart Lee actually ran a spoof campaign to legalise it.
