What I understand from your question is your concern and worry for repetitive anal sex. Anal sex is an unnatural way of having sex, and is a perversion. Though it can be ones sexual preference but it is harmful and potentially unsafe in many ways. It may cause infections of the anal canal, urinary tract, tears and injuries in the anal canal, fissures etc. Vaginal sex is the most safe and natural way of having intercourse. There is no most or least enjoyable position for sex. A consenting couple may opt for as many possible positions that are comfortable to both of them. For more details on the same you may read relevant scientific books available or consult a sexual counsellor and psychiatrist.

I am facing back pain problem last 1 month. Please help me.
Hi You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation.

Cosult a neurologist and get ncv study done for legs and arms if you have muscle wasting. It may be sign of motor neuron disease. Get it done only if you have difficulties in holding objects in any hand. Or have other functional limitations.
