Anal sex is safe if and only if , it is done safely.
Safely means condoms HAVE to be used each and every time. Safer means no penetration from the anus straight into the vagina as you carry bacteria from the anus into the vagina. Safer means using a good silicone based lubricant (http://www.dreve.co.za/shop/lubes-moisturizers-and-condoms/pjur.html)
The highest rate of HIV infection is from unprotected anal sex. So if you want anal sex, practice using a condom (http://www.dreve.co.za/shop/lubes-moisturizers-and-condoms/pasante-extra-lubricated-comdoms-extra-thick–-3s.html) until you really know how to use it and then can confidently use it with a consenting partner and lots of lube.
