5 Things You Do With A Butt During Sex That Are Unsafe

Okay, so let’s get one thing straight: The act of using one’s tongue on another’s butt is not a novel concept. People have probably been doing it for thousands of years. But it’s fair to say that–for a lack of a better term–eating butt is having a moment. I mean, you heard Jhene Aiko: “He gotta eat the booty like groceries.

A lot of you are probably grossed out by the idea, and a lot of you are probably into it, and most of you are both grossed out and super curious about this act of oral pleasure. Whether we’re dealing with oral butt activity, anal penetration, or other butt related activities, you should know that, like all other sex acts, there’s a lot to learn about how to do it in a safe way.

So here are 5 unsafe things you might be doing with your butt during sex that you need to know about. It’s time to know what’s up.

 

1. You figure you’re already tidy back there and don’t need to clean up a bit.

Analingus. Eating booty. Rimming. Tossing the salad. There are so many phrases for mouth to butt activity, but no matter what you want to call it, it’s important to be as safe as possible while doing it (or having it done to you). Butts are full of fecal bacteria that, if ingested, can lead to fever, cramps, diarrhea, etc. In other words, a crappy time (pun sort of intended).

To reduce the risk of bacterial infection, some people opt to freshen up a bit back there prior to any anal activity. This could include washing with a bit of soap and water or using an enema to cleanse the anal canal. Yeah, intense, but people do it! So while this might get rid of any fecal stragglers, it still can put you at risk for fecal bacteria or, even worse, STDs. The ultimate way to partake in analingus and remain totally safe is to use a dental dam, which is a thin piece of latex that acts as a barrier between the mouth and the butt. If you don’t have those on hand, you can get a traditional male condom, cut the tip and the opening, and cut along one side of it. You should have a square piece of latex, which works exactly the same way.

 

2. You two forgo lube for saliva or–even worse–no lube during anal.

Butts aren’t like vaginas, which lubricate on their own when stimulated. So whether a finger, toy, or penis is being used, penetration without lube is not going to lead to a very good time. It doesn’t just make it harder and more uncomfortable for both involved, forgoing lube during penetration can lead to rectal tears and abrasions. Basically, your butt can get to’ up, and nobody wants to deal with that.

Lube is sold everywhere, from drug stores, to classy sex toy shops and, obviously, online. So access to lube won’t be scarce, so just invest in some! Make sure that it is either silicone or water based; those ingredients are easier to work with. Never use an oil based lubricant! They can help spread STDs, cause condoms to break, and lead to nasty infections down there. So yeah, in a pinch, don’t grab some olive oil before getting down and dirty and call it a day. If you’re going to do butt stuff, do it right!

 

3. You or your partner goes from booty to vagina without sanitizing in-between.

You might have seen this before in porn, but this is so bad for you if you have a vagina. Let’s be real here: Feces come out of butts, and leftover feces and their bacteria is lurking in your rectal canal. A lot less of it than you think, mind you, but the makings of butt bacteria are just fine where they are: In your butt. So when even the teeniest of fecal bacteria is transferred during penetration to the vagina, a vaginal infection can occur. It doesn’t matter of a penis, toy, or finger is being used here, as long as you’re going from booty to vag, your vag is going to freak the hell out.

So what do you and your partner do if you want to switch things up? Wash up between butt action and vag action. Yeah, it’s an extra step, but it’s worth it to avoid vaginal infection.

 

4. You forget to breathe during analingus action.

This sounds silly, but just like people can forget to breathe during a blow job, it’s very possible to get so…into salad tossing action that you’re literally suffocating from the booty. You’re not an eight-year-old competing with your friend over how long you can hold your breath in the swimming pool. This isn’t a contest! Remember to breathe through the booty!

5. You and your partner don’t use a condom during anal.

Sure, you don’t have to worry about pregnancy during anal sex, but that doesn’t mean you should forgo condoms. STDs can still be transmitted anally! You don’t want this to be a case of, like, “Congrats, you’re not pregnant! But you do have herpes. Sorry!” Nah. Stay safe out there, y’all.
