To receive anal sex or anal toys play will cause anal sphincter muscles to loosen. Does digital rectal exams and enoscope will cause anal sphincter muscles to loosen since doctor's finger or eenoscope is similar to anal toys?

Your sphincter muscles doesn't loosen. It will become more familar with stimulation and then this allows it to relax easier. Digital & colorectal exams are usually quick, where scopes are longer lasting and could be done while your under. No matter what, it's the mindset of the person getting the anal stimulation and the amount of lube that makes the muscles relax. A sharp fingernail can make the muscles clench up really quickly. I have not met or heard of anybody who can just bend over and taking anal sex. It's a slow and wonderful process. The anus has to prepared be for insertion of any object. If it's not prepared, it's a very painful subject and no fun for the person receiving the insertion.

Let me clarify. Relax is to allow the insertion of an object (penis, digit, toy). Loosen to me means you can not keep stool in your bowels and the muscle doesn't close, The sphincter is a muscle. It will alway tighten up, unless it's damaged. Just like any other muscle. Sorry about the confusion.
