Anal Douching

An_247222 posted:
Hello. I am a gay male and my partner and I were looking into anal douching. I have hpv but he has the hpv vaccine and we are both monogamous so we have unprotected sex. My question is what are the pros and cons of douching. I have seen a lot of negative stuff on the internet about it regarding STD transmission but I am more concerned with other health issues that may come about by doing this before intercourse. Is it true that it will mess up the water absorption in the anus? Is there a correct amount of fluid that will make this process have little to no negative side effects? Thank you.
