What is rectal prolapse?
Causes of rectal prolapse
Rectal prolapse occurs when part or all of the wall of the rectum slides out of place, sometimes sticking out of the anus. There are three types of rectal prolapse. The lining mucous membrane of the rectum slides out of place and usually sticks out of the anus. This can happen when you strain to have a bowel movement. Partial prolapse is most common in children younger than 2 years. The entire wall of the rectum slides out of place and usually sticks out of the anus. At first, this may occur only during bowel movements. Eventually, it may occur when you stand or walk. And in some cases, the prolapsed tissue may remain outside your body all the time.

There's nothing wrong with watching porn from time to time, but some sex acts commonly depicted in adult films have health consequences that aren't depicted on-screen. Milton Diamond, director of the Pacific Center for Sex and Society at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, told Scientific American that he believed porn didn't encourage sexual violence, and could even be preventative. But while the research may suggest that porn does not encourage sexual violence, it also doesn't always present the full picture of how certain sexual behaviors may impact your health and that of your partner.
