I love anal, but I don't usually tell men that as they then become obsessed with it or are hurt if I don't want to have anal with them. I always get to know how a guy is in bed before I even MENTION anal as some men cannot handle how gentle/slow they sometimes need to be during anal and don't care to prep properly. It's amazing how many guys think they should just spit on it and shove it in! Not in MY ass, thank you very much!
My current partner, however, is perfect about listening to me when I tell him to slow down or anything like that. Anal is always a joy with him as I know I don't need to watch over everything he does. He responds well to my body.
