I like a girl who is four years older to me. We are going to get married. Will my sex life be fine?
Are you asking a question or making a statement? Listen to me. Get married with the girl you love. Your age difference will not have any adverse affect on your sex life. Couples with a much greater age difference are known to enjoy a very healthy sex life.

My friend uses a dildo to enter me from behind. I think she enters the anus. It pains a lot. Help.
Leave your friend. Stop giving in to her demands. Friendship is about giving and taking. Bring the issue to the notice of an elder. The anus is not as expandable as the vagina and reports of tears of anus are known following forced sexual intercourse. The chances of prolapse of rectum are high following repeated anal intercourse.

My friend never experiences pain during sex. Does this mean that she is double crossing me?
I pity your ignorance. There is no place for pain in a healthy sex life. Many couples report slight pain during first few sexual intercourses. They do eventually overcome this problem.

Any suspiciousness regarding absence of pain during sex needs to be discarded, to enjoy a healthy sexual life. Please use a condom to minimise the risk of unwanted pregnancy as well as STD.
