And one of the most popular food-related questions that I get asked is about this very issue. In varying forms, the question goes something like this: That is, until this morning when I came across an email from a young man in Vancouver: That means being a clean bottom. Before I bottom, I generally avoid eating solid foods for hours but was wondering if there are certain foods that I should eat more of or less of to be a better bottom?
For a lot of us, gay intercourse is learned through trial and error. And here they are: No man is worth your health. Your body needs food, and starving yourself is depriving your body of the nutrients that it needs.
It sacrifices your health and puts your fitness goals at risk. First and foremost, you need to treat your body with love and respect. Butt sex is shitty. The primary function of your anus and rectum is to expel feces. Your partner needs to understand this too, and thus have reasonable expectations. Being a good sex partner — top, bottom or otherwise — is about communication, respect, patience, consideration, understanding and fun.
All of these things are far, far more important factors in having good sex. Having said all of that, is there really a healthy, sustainable diet that can result in cleaner anal intercourse?
In browsing forums and discussion boards around bottoming, many commentators encourage eating more fiber. However, fiber comes in two forms. Soluble fiber adds bulk to stools and is a great way for treating diarrhea. Soluble fiber also helps lower cholesterol and control blood sugar, and is found in oats, beans, potatoes, apples, mangos, berries, peaches and so on.
Insoluble fiber, on the other hand, is not digestible. It softens stools and makes diarrhea worse. It is found in the skins of fruit, the skins of beans, whole wheat, cereal products, brown rice, seeds, broccoli, spinach, carrots, tomatoes, lettuce and so on.
In other words, the type of fiber may greatly influence results. At the end of the day, we are all very unique and we all process and digest foods in different ways. Sure, pre-intercourse preparation is important. Ourselves, our partners and the connection we make.
