Does Having Anal Make You Have To Poop?

Anal sex is often seen as this *mysterious* thing with a lot of talk and a number of myths about it. And unless you actually have done the deed, it can sometimes be difficult to separate what’s legit from what is nothing more than the sexual equivalent of fake news that people cannot help but spread. (The internet is full of it, people.)

One of the biggest things we hear about anal is that it makes you poop. It’s something that R-rated comedies are made of, but is it actually a legitimate thing or is it all just silly number two talk? I’m here to break it down for you.

If I have anal, will I really go poop?

If you’re under the impression that anal is always served with a side of poop, you can forget about that. When you have vaginal sex, you’ don’t always have orgasms and the same sort of thing can be said about anal. There might be occasions when you have a bit of poop to deal with and other times there might not be any.


How much will come out?

If you’re concerned that you’re going to, erm, do what you do in the toilet all over the bed, you shouldn’t worry about having that extreme of a reaction. A bit of poop might come out or none at all. That being said, if you had to go to the toilet before and you try to hold it in while you’re having anal sex, things could get messy.



Will it feel like I have to go?

Probably. A lot of people describe anal sex as being an “intense” sensation back there. It’s from the friction of bae’s peen going up your butt hole, which you might find is reminiscent of having to go to the bathroom. I don’t want to completely turn you off, but just think about how the shape of a peen filling up back there could be similar to having to go number two.


What about farting?

It might happen, but you should also be prepared for some bum queefing. If you’re familiar with the vaginal kind, you will probably understand why it can happen when you’re doing stuff in the back door. Small hole plus something being put in and out of it equals trapped air. However, it will probably still surprise you and bae.



What happens if some poop does come out?

It’s recommended that you wear a condom during anal sex to protect you and your partner against diseases and to create a barrier between your butt hole and bae’s peen. So, the condom will help keep things as clean as possible down there. That being said, it’s never a bad idea to keep some tissues and/or wipes nearby. And I’m sure no one is going to say no to a sexy shower post-anal.


How do I deal with bae plus poop?

Bae should be aware that if you’re having anal sex, poop is a possibility. As some charmingly like to say, it’s part of the experience. Just be prepared with the aforementioned wipes, towels, and remember to keep things clean. And if bae does have a freakout about it then he might not be ready to actually have anal.


And what if I think that I really have to go?

If you’re convinced that you legit have to poo, you’re going to have to speak up. Even if you think it is an emergency, resist the urge to pull away from bae and make a dash for the bathroom because that could end up being very painful. Anal can sometimes be intense so after you tell bae, get him to pull out slowly before you make a beeline to the bathroom.

How can I avoid having to poo during anal?

You cannot completely control if some poo does come out, but obviously going to the bathroom beforehand will help. And if you have cramps or an upset stomach, or you’ve been running to the toilet throughout the day, it’s probably best if you hold off on anal until your bowels are functioning better.


Will I have to be careful post-anal about leakage?

Anal doesn’t “break” your bowels or anything. However, you might find that it has “loosened” things up done there, so just think about that in case you’re going somewhere where there won’t be any toilets nearby.
