An anal piercing is a body piercing in the surrounding area of the human anus, usually the perineum.[1]

Despite the name, piercing of the anal sphincter itself is rather rare. Some report difficulty cleaning the area after defecation and increases chances of infection.[1]

In the United Kingdom the minimum age for an anal piercing is 16 enacted in the Sexual Offences Act of 2003.[2]
