HI, im a 22 year old male.
Is it possible to damage the pundendal nerve or suffer pudendal nerve entrapment from the insertion of a penis sized object into the rectum?
The object was inserted by some one else (a girl if it matters) and inserted slowly with lubricant. It entered only 3 at most 4 inches.
factors1. I never bicycle nor have I suffered a memorable fall on the coccyx
factors2. I have a little bit of "lower butt" pressure but this seems to be relaxed by "popping" or straightening my back. no pain.
factors3.my stools for the last year have been thinner in diameter (Not sure if this helps any).

While it is theoretically possible it is very unlikely to damage the pudendal nerve via this mechanism. The pudendal nerve heads towards the front of the body fairly quickly after it forms from the sacral spinal nerves. It is quite well cushioned against trauma.
