Having anal sex is like having large hard stools, only in reverse. It also lasts longer than a bowel movement, and may eventually result in greater carnage: enlarged internal hemorrhoids, anal fissures, ulcers, fistulas, nerve damage, rectocele, the weakness of anal sphincters, chronic pain, fecal incontinence, and, of course, chronic constipation. Anal sex causes constipation for the exact same reasons that large stools cause it — the diameter of even a small erect penis is as large or larger than the maximum aperture of the anal canal.

After watching a cable rerun of Knocked Up such a classic this weekend, we couldn't stop thinking about that scene where Leslie Mann turns down Paul Rudd's sex invite because she's constipated. Seriously, is this a thing? As it turns out, Leslie's character wasn't just making up excuses, says Yvonne Bohn, ob-gyn, M. Pain aside, having sex while heavily backed up can also put you at risk for infection: If there is a lot of stool in the rectum, it is possible that bacteria from the stool can travel from the anus during sex and enter the vagina or urethra, leading to a vaginal or urinary tract infection, says Bohn. But in most cases, being backed up doesn't mean you've got to go sans sex. In fact, a little P-in-V action might actually get things moving in some cases. For the constipated party, a hands-and-knees position will likely feel most comfortable, she says.
