Is there anything that can cause a woman to have a rectocele besides child birth or anal sex?

In brief: Bad genes.
Genetic predisposition, chronic constipation, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (coughing), asthma, diabetes mellitus and multiple childbirths can lead to rectocele.
I am not aware of any studies to suggest that anal intercourse is a risk factor.
