Anal intercourse is not usually listed as a cause of fecal incontinence.  Some older studies did suggest that fecal incontinence was higher in gay men but are not considered well designed studies.  There are mixed opinions without a definitive answer regarding this subject.  The evidence I am aware of does not show a significant increase in fecal incontinence with anal intercourse in men.  This topic has not been well studied in women.  J.
