That would be anal intercourse. As for the rumor that you mention, I don't think that's something that should cause much concern. It would be better to think about protecting yourself from STIs and HIV, which can be transmitted very easily through anal sex.

Stretching of any orifice *is* possible - but seeing as the average chunk of fecal matter is about the same size as the average penis, I honestly wouldn't expect it to be *that* big an issue in the average case of more-or-less plain-vanilla anal intercourse.

Just for reference - the anus, like the vagina, is designed to stretch to allow things to pass through, then go back to its normal state again.

So normal activities (intercourse included) are not going to "stretch" the anus any more than they will make the vagina "loose".
