How to Bottom in 8 Easy Steps
Time Needed: 10 days
Bottoming Should Not Hurt
Bottoming is a strange and unfamiliar experience, especially if you are a first-timer. Remember, bottoming should not hurt.
In fact, it should feel great! This is probably the biggest misconception surrounding how to bottom.
Pain is your body telling you that you are doing something wrong! This is why understanding your body is the best way to prepare yourself.
Preparation: Clean Up with An Anal Enema
Before you start, make sure that you clean before having anal sex.
Douching is by far the easiest way to get the job done. It will make sex more comfortable and remove any worries you might have.
Enemas work by injecting water and flushing out any surprises you might have lingering behind. You can check our more in-depth guide to using an Enema here.
Loosen Up: Practice on Your Own
Before actually having sex you should first practice on your own and get used to the sensation. Your anal sphincter is a muscle like any other and can be trained and stretched to prevent injury.
Anal trainer kits, anal plugs, or even a finger are a great way to train your anal muscles at your own pace and get used to the feeling of bottoming before the real thing.
Learn To Relax Your Anal Sphincter Muscle
The inner sphincter is located about an inch inside that typically causes pain while bottoming. Learning to control this muscle is the key to making sex more enjoyable.
If you have ever gone number 2 then you already know how to relax this muscle. The key is to be able to do this same action but on command.
While pushing outward with your lower abdomen like you are going to the bathroom. Feel your anus relax and slowly insert a lubricated toy finger. You should notice your inner muscles start to relax and open.
Get Used to the New Sensation
Once you are in, you may have a strange feeling like you need to pee or that you need to poop. This is normal.
It is just your body’s natural reaction to an unfamiliar situation. We are training your body to learn the difference between sex and nature’s calling. With a few practice runs, this feeling should go away. Eventually, this should start to feel pleasurable.
Practice Inserting and Pushing Out
As your body gets used to the feeling of having a finger or toy fully inside, it is time to move onto motion. We want to simulate the thrusting motion of sex.
With the toy fully inserted, push out and allow it to exit your body, but not fully. Slowly, try again to insert it, and repeat. Practice this motion faster and faster until you are at the full speed of sex.
Move Up in Thickness
While learning how to bottom without pain, thickness more than anything is what will be your biggest hurdle. To avoid pain, you should continue to work up to more realistic sizes.
You can do this by using more fingers, larger plugs, or even a realistic dildo. Once you are comfortable with a more realistic size then we are ready for the real thing!
Anal Sex: It’s Time for the Real Thing!
Once you are comfortable with the feeling and have enough practice sessions, then it is time for the real thing!
Adopting the same principles, you should be ready to bottom in real life. Remember to lube up, push out, relax, and start slowly.
Things to Keep in Mind
A big part of anal sex is in comfort and trust. Put simply, if you are comfortable, relaxed, and communicate well, then learning how to bottom becomes much easier.
Remember to go slowly, communicate with your partner, and practice, practice practice!
