Best Diet for Bottoms

Best Diet for Bottoms

They say you are what you eat. Does that mean you’re a big, thick cock? Likely not. It does, however, mean that if you, like most of the homosexual community, enjoy some good ole’ fashioned anal penetration, that what you put in your mouth (besides dick) is more important than you might think. After all, what goes in must come out. 

Gay bottoms are used to willingly taking it in the ass. And unless you’re into pig play, you probably have a routine cleansing ritual you perform before engaging in anal sex. Douching, enemas, and manscaping your asshole are just a few ways to prim and prep for anal fun. But, regardless of how careful you are, shit happens - literally. While this is a natural bodily function, it’s not exactly sexy. So, if you want to get down and dirty with your man without actually getting dirty, keep reading. A few changes to your diet can actually make for a cleaner, more enjoyable experience.

Diet 101

While this article is focused on the best diet for bottoming, there are a few basic digestion principles that apply here. It’s no surprise that greasy, spicy foods high in fat can cause your tummy to rumble. These foods are hard to digest and can cause not only stomach pains but also cramping and diarrhea. (Yep, more NOT sexy stuff.) Spicy foods are infamous for causing you to sprint to the bathroom. On the flip side, foods high in fiber are more binding, easy on your stomach, and slow to digest, making them perfect for bottoming.

The truth is, eating a healthy, balanced diet a majority of the time should set you up for healthy digestion and positive bottoming experience, regardless of when the mood strikes. Remember, the more you overthink it, and the tenser you get, the more upset your stomach will become. Nerves alone can create a messy situation so breathe, relax, and simply put, don’t eat like a slob (unless you’re tossing your man’s salad).

What and What Not to Eat

As we already mentioned, there’s no perfect diet for bottoming. Every person is different and needs to listen to their unique body. In the meantime, here’s a short list of anal sex friendly (and not so friendly) foods to get you started.

Good Foods for Bottoming

  • Whole grains
  • Fresh fruits 
  • Fresh vegetables
  • Unprocessed bran
  • Protein
  • Nuts
  • Beans and legumes

Not So Good Foods for Bottoming 

  • Processed foods
  • Fatty meats
  • Spicy foods
  • Saturated fat
  • Dairy

This last one may come as a surprise but believe it or not, 75% of the population has a mild allergy to dairy and doesn’t even know it. Skip the ice cream and milk a day or two before bottoming. 

When to Eat

Preparing to be a gay bottom isn’t just about what you eat but also when. This doesn’t mean starving yourself for days or even hours prior to sex. Most men digest food within 6-8 hours, but chances are you won’t hit the bathroom for several hours after that. Starving yourself isn’t healthy and could cause an unwanted backup later on. On the other hand, we don’t suggest visiting the Taco Bell drive-thru on your way to your boyfriend’s house. Spicy foods are notorious for causing digestive issues, gas pains, and frequent trips to the bathroom.

Timing is everything when it comes to your gay bottom diet. While you can’t predict every time your body’s going to digest and decide to make a move - literally - you can make a few adjustments to your normal schedule to accommodate some fun and stress-free anal play. Start your day with a light, healthy diet high in fiber and whole grains. Oatmeal with a banana, a protein shake, or even egg whites are all good choices. Preparing for morning sex with your man? Maybe skip breakfast and have a light dinner the night before filled with protein and whole grains to keep you feel fuller, longer. After he’s done ravishing your asshole, you can ravish the refrigerator. 

Wash It Down

What you drink is just as important as what you eat. Drinking plenty of water helps promote healthy digestion and keeps things moving freely. Water also helps “bulk up” the food you eat, which creates more solid movements and prevents anything unwanted from sneaking out. Hydration helps your body break down and digest the high fiber foods you’re eating. If you can’t get in your daily dose of fiber, pair a few glasses of water with a fiber supplement for a healthy balance. Speaking of drinking, avoid consuming too much alcohol prior to bottoming. While it may help you relax, too much booze can cause nausea and may actually numb you to any pain or discomfort. This may sound like a good thing, but it’s actually quite dangerous. Pain is the first sign you need to ease up on your anal escapades.

Listen to Your Gut (Literally)

At the end of the day, you know your body better than anyone. You know which foods agree with it and which ones to avoid. Make a list of foods that leave you feeling full, satisfied, and healthy. Then, make a list of no-go foods that cause gas, bloating, and overall discomfort. Aside from not wanting a messy anal experience, gay bottoming is about being comfortable, vulnerable and uninhibited. Even if your stomach behaves itself and everything stays put, you don’t want gas pains or bloating interrupting your sex session. This will definitely take away from the fun and your chances of having a hands-free orgasm. More good news? Normal anal penetration rarely causes a BM. Unless you’re engaging in hardcore fisting or using XL dildos, you should be in the clear for some good, clean, fun.

Gay Bottoming Doesn’t Require a Complete Diet Overhaul

Gay bottoms have to think about more than just what goes in their butt - you also need to consider what goes in your mouth (other than your man’s load). Certain foods promote healthy digestion and comfortable regularity. Other foods can cause more than just bloating and gas. Avoid unwanted interruptions by listening to your body, drinking plenty of water, and avoiding foods that throw your stomach into overdrive. Don’t completely change your diet or lifestyle. This in itself is enough to disrupt the natural flow of things. Remember, you can’t predict how every sex session will end, and honestly, that’s what keeps things exciting!
