It's not simply STDs. There are inherent health risks involved with anal intercourse.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anal_intercourse

"Anal sex exposes the participants to hazards of two kinds: infections, due to the high number of infectious microorganisms not found elsewhere on the body, and physical damage to the anus and the rectum due to their vulnerability. An insufficient amount of lubricant can make it especially painful or injurious.[19]


Infectious diseases
Among the diseases with which anal sex is associated are HIV,[20] anal cancer,[21] typhoid fever[22] and various diseases associated with the infectious nature of fecal matter or sexual intercourse in general. Among these are: Amoebiasis; Chlamydia; Cryptosporidiosis; Giardiasis; Gonorrhea; Hepatitis A; Hepatitis B; Hepatitis C; Herpes simplex; Human papillomavirus; Lymphogranuloma venereum; Pubic lice; Salmonellosis; Shigella; Syphilis; Tuberculosis.[23][24][25]


HIV/AIDS
The high concentration of white blood cells around the rectum, together with the risk of cuts to the rectum and that one of the functions of the rectum is to absorb fluid, increases the risk of HIV transmission because the HIV retrovirus reproduces within the immune system's T-cells/CD4 cells. Use of condoms and other precautions are a medically recommended way to lessen risk of infections. Unprotected receptive anal sex is the most risky sexual behavior in terms of HIV transmission.[26][27][28]


Physical damage
Physical damage to the rectum and anus can manifest as generalized ano-rectal trauma, hemorrhoids, anal fissures,[29] anal fistula and rectal prolapse. Damage is more likely if anal sex is done without consent, if alcohol or other drugs have dulled sensitivity, if communication is poor, or if technique is clumsy.


Incontinence
Incontinence has also been reported; the result of the anal sphincter losing its tonus.[30] A 1993 study published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine found that out of a sample of forty individuals receiving anal intercourse, fourteen experienced episodes of frequent anal incontinence."

there are inherent risks with any form of intercourse, in some cases even with oral sex alone. that is why what is MOST IMPORTANT in the health field is to determine the demographic and the level of contact. the differential between vaginal and anal is so minimal when one considers the variable of promiscuity first and foremost. how heavy a viral load is a critical factor as well. it is exposure to the virus and how often one is exposed that is the greatest risk. for instance, with prostitutes, chances are that they are carrying more that one STD and so an individual who has been with a prostitute becomes one who has been at risk ( partly because of physical changes caused by STDs, including genital lesions that can serve as an entry point for HIV, the presence of certain STDs can increase one’s chances of contracting HIV infection 3- to 5-fold. also, a person who has both HIV infection and certain STDs has a greater chance of spreading HIV to others. and people should bear in mind that HPV is not always effectively contained even with the use of a condom). the concern with gays is promiscuity more than anything else. why else is it that teens also represent such a high rate of std's? it is not because of the sex they are engaging in it is the level of promiscuity amongst within that demographic. (just come to university hospital if you want to see the good number of herpes patients in their teens.) it still comes down to numbers and risk and that is why a patient history is more concerned with the answers to how many partners one has had unprotected sex or with a prostitute that matters most. ( of course, the issue of IV drug users as well)

Not exactly.
http://www.healthatoz.com/healthatoz...ian_health.jsp

"Several studies have indicated that lesbians have higher risk for developing breast cancer. This is partially related to higher rates of risk factors such as obesity, alcohol use, tobacco use, and nulliparity (not bearing children)."

"Lesbians also have additional risk of developing ovarian cancer, due to inadequate access to health care, nulliparity, and not using oral contraceptives (use of oral contraceptives has been shown to decrease the risk of getting ovarian cancer)."

"It has been shown that lesbians are more likely than heterosexual women to be obese, have a higher body mass index (BMI), and have higher rates of smoking, but are also more likely to have a healthier body image"

"Marijuana and cocaine use has been shown to be higher among lesbians than heterosexual women."

"Lesbians are more than two times as likely to become heavy smokers than heterosexual women."

Couldn't you find many similar differences between races? The "oral contraceptives" one I'll buy, but drug use, obesity, smoking - you'd be hard-pressed to find a direct cause/effect relationship from being a lesbian to these.
