Stooling is the medical term for the act of passing a stool or feces from the anus. This act is an important part of preparing for anal sex. The passing of regular stools that are firm, but not too firm, is a good indicator of overall health.
Under most circumstances, people can control stooling. A chronic inability to control stooling is known as fecal incontinence.
Stooling is known by several colloquial and slang names, including pooing and pooping.
