Is there anything that a bottom doesn’t know? Well, technically, yes. Without generalization (but even if we do generalize just a little bit, you probably won’t get offended as we trust in your great sense of humor), bottom gay guys are the ones who are always extremely funny, they tend to know everything about all the feuds and celebrity scandals and beef, know who’s doing whom (is Shawn Mendes doing Camilla, though?), but do they know everything about sex and bottoming? Perhaps yes, perhaps no. But, just to be on the safe side, take a look at the 10 things that every single gay person who’s into bottoming or thinking about it should know:

1. Clean yo’self

This goes without saying, and it is definitely the first thing that every gay guy should learn, may he be a bottom or a top. Cleaning yourself is the number 1 rule of personal hygiene, and it is important to know how to properly douche yourself. This can be done in the comfort of your own bathroom, which might involve some mess and a lot of spilled water, but this is the only way to know that you are 100% clean and ready to take it.

2. Watch what you’re eating

On the actual day of your sex date, do not overeat and don’t eat junk food at all. Rather, try to find some foods that are digested easily so they leave no debris in your body. After this, douche yourself properly (as rule #1 states) and you will be ready to go.

3. Relax

Once you get ready physically, it is time to get ready mentally for the penetration process (this way it sounds more medical!). If you are bottoming for the first time, then this might seem easier said than done, and guess what – you are right. You will be quite nervous before the actual moment, and it will probably hurt a bit, but the most important thing is to make it through that first wave of pain, take a deep breath, relax your muscles and you will see the difference. Know that the first time is always the most difficult one.

4. Think of sex toys

Bottom gays tend to be kinkier and kinkier these days, which is definitely not a bad thing. Seeing people become more open towards new things and trying out as many things as possible is an incredible thing. This is why opting to experiment with different sex toys
