I had leakage from my anus when I was younger and now that I've read all these comments I recalled the problems it led to. I have had CD all my life but was not diagnosed until recently. In my case the fecal incontinence was related to sensitivities to chemicals which caused the fecal problem but also urinary incontinence and drooling. The chemicals, mostly those in commercially prepared foods and in the air, would cause muscle weakness so the spincters would not hold. The fecal leakage led to urinary tract infections whenever I had sex from the bacteria being pushed up into the urinary tract. Using lubricants with sex helped that problem but sexua| activity usually led to vaginal irritation. I learned to wash thoroughly before and after sex and to urinate after having sex. Having the partner wear a condom would not help this problem as it was sex act which caused more fecal leakage and spread the bacteria around. Although chemical sensitivities are common in Celiacs the gf diet did not reduce them - I still have to avoid many chemicals and be careful about the contamination in foods I eat.
