I had anal sex for the first time and a few days after was still very sore, however it felt muscular, not something like a tear on the rectum.

You can definitely stretch the muscles of the sphincter to produce a muscular type soreness. Unfortunately, unlike other muscle strains, you can't put that muscles totally at rest (since every time you have a bowel movement it is stretched). If the pain becomes severe or does not totally resolve within a week you would need to see an MD.
