Tops frequently question why they fall so quickly for a great bottom experience, and wonder how the bottom is able to endure the rapid, thrusting sensation of his manhood with every climactic moment of the sexual experience. Perhaps it is the ecstasy of being engaged with a bottom of power, or what is more commonly referred to as the “power bottom.”
My personal definition, in “gay” terms, of a bottom is a male who receives penal penetration in the anus, also identified as the receptive partner. So, what is the difference between a regular bottom and a power bottom – or is there even a difference at all?
The meaning of power bottom varies on an individual-by-individual basis; some would consider a “power bottom” a person who has a long, strong sexual drive who can endure being penetrated for extended lengths of time, while others view them as “size queens” – a person who generally enjoys being penetrated by a very well-endowed top. However, in my experience, it’s just plain and simple: tops enjoy guys who can deliver great bottom experiences because it is their ultimate sexual fantasy. A person who can fulfill the fantasy of a top’s sexual desires, needs and wants without being asked or instructed is truly a top’s dream.
Tops appreciate a bottom that enjoys his experience without complaining about exhaustion or pain. Unfortunately, though, the term “power bottom” has essentially been dragged through the mud and viewed negatively by a number of tops and bottoms, but do not fall for the gibberish. Even though the sexual experience may be very enjoyable with the power bottom, there is much more to this equation. A power bottom, in my opinion, is not a size queen or a person with excessive sexual stamina, but is one who has experience as a bottom, is very confident and knows his self-worth.
The ways a power bottom talks and his assertive confidence have the ability to instantly mesmerize a top; the power bottom, with a simple greeting of “Hello,” instantly draws him in, and the sexual experience has already begun. When the top instantly becomes mentally stimulated by the power bottom’s conversation, the top’s desire to explore this bottom and their experience together. The way the power bottom sways when he walks is erotically appealing, and is also a calculated skill that drives the top wild! Beyoncé said it best in her song, “Ego”: “I walk like this ‘cause I can back it up!”
As confident as the power bottom is in his walk, he is equally confident in the bedroom. The erotic sexual moment about to ensue is appealing to the top, because he can’t believe what he is feeling now that he is alone with him. As they engage, the moment of climax approaches and totally blows his…mind, and makes him feel like he has fallen in love. The power bottom is smiling because he knows his sex, body, mind and spirit all ooze – of confidence.
Self-worth is the undisputed trait of a power bottom. Being confident in who you are as an intellectual, sexual individual is also intellectually and sexually intriguing to tops – hence the adjective, power.
