The description given by you can be a normal appearance in many white skinned women. This does not indicate any specific disease. Whether the skin around the anus is lighter or darker, you must always go for protected sex if you are having multiple sex partners. Disease can be present even in individuals with light colored skin around the anus.
Using condoms prevents transmission of most sexual infections. If you are still frightened about contracting sexually transmitted diseases then you may request her to get tested and get yourself tested as well.
Hope your query is answered.
