Let's hear it for bottoms!

It's funny that CL penned the post just before about the general disrespect and/or feminizing of bottoms, because I've been hearing things like this recently from many of my friends, exes, and neighborhood priests (Father Flanagan is a power bottom, or so I hear).

And, as one who is 97% top, 3% occasional bottom, I have to say the following: WTF TOPS!? Seriously, I don't understand why this happens. It doesn't make any sense at all.

PJ made a comment on CL's post to the effect of how manly one must be to take on the discomfort of a big fat hard one. I fully agree. I openly admit that I am a coward and can't take the initial pain. Yes, I've done it a few times, but they are literally countable on two hands.

Because of this I have an immense respect for bottoms. Immense. When I meet a person who bottoms I am impressed. I don't treat them like pussies or defenseless cretins. Quite the opposite, I often admit I'm a total top with much shame. I wish it were different. Hell, every once in a while I ENDEAVOR to... open myself up... to the other side of the sexual spectrum.

So a quick note to my fellow tops. Get your shit together and learn where to give credit and respect. Because we are so weak and afraid, our only alternative is to be lucky enough to find someone who appreciates and can take the sensations of bottoming. And trust me, we need them more than they need us. I've been with another top on many an occasion, and we might as well have been playing Super Smash Brothers, it was that lame.

And finally, I don't want to discount the fact that versatility seems to be the new black. Why do just one when you can flip flop and have a party of it. It's certainly a goal of mine. One I will continue working towards.

But, in the meantime, bottoms have all my respect and adoration. They aren't girly men. They're manlier men than me.



  1. It's certainly a goal of mine. One I will continue working towards.

    Will you be keeping us updated on your... endeavours? :-P

  2. For some reason, this propelled my imagination to the newest frontier in nerd satisfaction: Wii Sex.

    THINK about it...

    They could make a fortune. It's like the NEW workout.

  3. ROFL! I'm picturing a power bar (think Streetfighter II) showing your progress towards your and your partner's climax.

    You've unlocked a secret level: 3-some.

  4. Apparently this exists in Japan...sigh, so much for originality.

    It's like my grampa used to tell me, "The only thing Americans make better than the Japanese: Bombs."

  5. Fleshlight interface for the Wii?

  6. Flip flop fucking is sooooo hot, but not everyone is up for it. It takes dead on chemistry to make it happen.


  7. Versatility IS the new black!

    luckily I'm a trend-setter by nature.

    I blogged about this the other day..labeling ones self is just SO limiting - be open and flexible - it's way more fun
