Bottoming effectively, like any other position, comes with its own set of problems. If you’re not careful, bottoming might expose you to illnesses and injury. And, like with any sexual experience, communication is essential for preventing wounded sentiments as well as physical discomfort. To put it another way, bottoming isn’t always simple — but there are techniques to make it so. To get the most out of the experience, make sure you plan ahead of time, establish certain expectations, and, of course, exercise strong consent.
