Many American women engage in heterosexual anal intercourse HAI , but are less likely to use condoms during these activities when compared to vaginal intercourse, according to American researchers. The anus is more prone to abrasions and, unlike the vagina, does not produce discharge that can help protect against infection. Information about anal intercourse in the United States has been limited. The present study, published online last summer in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, aimed to describe the frequency of HAI among American women and the rates of condom use during their last HAI experience.

Youth Blog—Ask an Expert: Is It Ever Okay to Have Anal Sex without a Condom? - IMPACT Program
Hi, I am a 25 year old male. Today, my girlfriend and I were just trying out anal sex without condoms and without any sort of lube except for some lotion and some saliva because that was all that were available and because both of us were stupid enough to NOT KNOW that this is highly risky for our lives, I ejaculated full well inside her anus. This, we did, in doggie style and only afterwards did we find out that this was pretty darn reckless of us. Do you think this could get her pregnant? Or something worse? And if she takes a contraceptive, emergency pill like Levonorgestrel 0. Please help, experts!
