Bottoming can be a real chore. The amount of preparation you have to do beforehand can take you out of the mood and makes spontaneous sex a pipe dream (pun fully intended).
A lot of people prepare for bottoming in anal sex by fasting in advance or douching (squirting water up the anus) to clean it out.
But fasting and douching aren’t the healthiest or most convenient options, and you shouldn’t have to jump through all these hoops just to prepare for sex.
There are also some risks involved in doing this. Fasting is already unhealthy, and douching can lead to health issues as well as running the risk of loosening up stools that wouldn’t be an issue anyway.
That’s not even mentioning the emotional aspect, where prep like this can lead to a loss of intimacy or lack of enjoyment.
Luckily, you can make sure you’re ready to go by simply changing a few things about your diet beforehand.
So let’s take a look at the best foods to eat before bottoming (as well as the ones you should avoid at all costs).
Why You Need To Prepare
So why is eating the right food before bottoming important? There are a couple of reasons why.
The first (and most obvious) reason is to avoid mess.
While the anal canal typically doesn’t have any poop in it (waste is stored in the colon), there is still the risk that residue can be left after using the toilet.
Anal sex can also loosen up your muscles, meaning doing the dirty can become literal if you aren’t careful.
Preparation like douching and fasting isn’t super effective at reducing this risk. Fasting won’t do your digestive system any favors, and douching (as mentioned before) can actually increase the chance of mess if you overdo it.
What Foods To Eat Before Bottoming
The best way to avoid any shitty situations is to make sure that your stools come out in one go without leaving any residue.
Eating the right foods helps you make sure that nothing gets left behind, without the need to douche or cut out food entirely. A good diet also improves your mood and your health, so there isn’t really any downside to adopting a more bottom-friendly meal plan.
If you want to make sure your stools leave no trace behind, proper fiber is the best way to achieve this. Fiber helps your digestive system function, moves everything along, and keeps your stool in one solid piece.
Eating foods with high levels of fiber is a great way to prepare for bottoming, as long as you make sure to poop well before sex.
Some great fiber-rich foods include fruits and veg, nuts, and pulses. These improve how your digestive system functions, making it run smoothly.
Additionally, the fiber in these foods helps your poop stay solid and intact, so there isn’t any risk of stray traces being left behind.
If these foods aren’t your cup of tea, you could take fiber supplements instead. These deliver all the fiber you need in one go; just make sure to use them as directed, and consult a dietician if you aren’t entirely sure how to take them.
Fiber isn’t the be-all and end-all, however, and other foods also make bottoming much less of a hassle.
If you don’t want to switch up your diet too much, white meats like chicken are a better alternative to red meats. These are easier to digest, as well as being healthy and delicious.
Try not to go overboard, though – too much meat in your diet will make your stools looser and stop them from coming out all at once.
Water is also important. Not only will being well-hydrated keep your body as a whole working smoothly, but it will also help your digestive system run better.
Not only that, but fiber requires water to dissolve in for it to work properly. Drinking plenty of water will let water-soluble fiber pass through your body, as well as stopping your stools from being rock-solid.
It’s no secret that highly processed and junk foods are bad for you, but they also have a negative impact on your stomach if you’re planning to bottom. Using natural ingredients and eating raw foods when possible will keep your body in great shape and make sure you’re ready to bottom.
What You Should Avoid
There aren’t just foods that are better prior to bottoming. There are also some foods you should steer well clear of.
If you’re going to be bottoming, you should avoid foods that are high in insoluble fiber.
As the name suggests, insoluble fiber isn’t digested. It mostly just bulks food out and helps move waste through the bowels – definitely not what you want before bottoming.
Foods that are high in insoluble fiber include things like brown rice, whole grain bread, beans, and even the skins of some fruits and vegetables. Try to avoid or cut down on these for at least 24 hours before you have sex.
Red meat and dairy can also be hard to fully digest.
It should also go without saying that you shouldn’t eat anything you know upsets your stomach.
Anything that causes you stomach issues are nicknamed ‘trigger foods’. These can include things like dairy if you are lactose intolerant, foods that you’re allergic to, or common foods like beans and eggs that are known to cause stomach problems.
You should also avoid spicy foods.
Not only do these irritate your stomach and have laxative effects, but the capsaicin in spicy foods also causes inflammation around your anus. Definitely not the sort of thing you want to experience before you bottom.
As mentioned before, highly-processed foods will also negatively affect your body.
Foods that are high in fat and sugar (especially both) will impact your gut and can lead to messy stools that leave residue in your anal canal.
Cutting out unhealthy junk foods will improve the integrity of your poop and make sure your anal cavity is free from waste.
Avoiding the wrong foods is just as important as eating the right ones.
While it may be disappointing having to cut some of these foods out of your diet to bottom, there are still plenty of delicious things you can eat while getting ready to bottom.
And if you’re not planning on bottoming any time soon, then you don’t need to worry about avoiding these foods at all.
So now you know a bit more about what foods you should eat (and which foods to avoid) when you’re planning to bottom.
A good diet is a much healthier and easier way to keep your anus clean when compared to douching or fasting, and it’s easy to make most of these changes.
You don’t even need to completely overhaul your diet for this – as long as you eat the right foods within 24 hours of when you’ll be bottoming, you’ll greatly reduce the chance of any mess happening.
No matter your gender, anal sex should be safe, clean, and enjoyable. And staying healthy and maintaining a good diet is a great way to improve your sex life.
Now all you need to do is put this into practice, and you can say goodbye to your days of worrying about pre-bottom prep. So get to it and have some fun!
