The pad has a minor portion superimposed on a major portion, the minor portion having a cross-sectional area smaller than a cross-sectional are of the major portion and wherein the minor portion is tapered along its width to facilitate insertion between the subject's gluteals and retention in the intergluteal space, and a portion of the minor portion is positioned against the anus, and the minor portion has a length that is at least as long as the length of the major portion.
