It might cause trauma to the rectum or anus but this would usually result in pain or bleeding
Diarrhea is usually from an infection, such as from a food bug,
You should also worry about STDs if you are not having protected sex.
In addition just after anal sex there can be a laxative effect which might cause some diarrhea but it should not be constant and ongoing.

good luck
