Difficulty bottoming--wasn't always the case!

    I'm enthusiastically 100% versatile, but have had relationships where I was more bottom-oriented and it was always really enjoyable--no issues whatsoever with pain or bleeding or anything like that.

    The past couple years, though, I've found it increasingly difficult to bottom. Whenever I try it, I end up feeling raw and sore for a couple days following, even if the sex is on the tame side. I always use lots of lube, but I just can't seem to take it or enjoy it like I used to. Not a big deal, I guess because I like to top, too! But I hate to think that I can't ever fully enjoy being on the receiving end.

    Anyone else notice that the experience of bottoming has changed from being fun to being somewhat painful?

    LOL, yes--by default, I guess I am turning into more or less a total top. But I like the option of flipping and hate the fact that it just doesn't seem worth the hassle of feeling sore.

    Not be a little gross, but it could be hemorrhoids. You might want to get your doctor to take a look. If so, and they're mild, OTC cortisone cream might help.

    Thanks, Showme--that's crossed my mind, but the only time I'm ever sore in that area is after the rare go at bottoming. But your point is well taken: I think I'll just call my doc.

    What a coincidence! I'm a doctor, too--though sadly not the kind that can help with anything medical...otherwise I would have diagnosed myself.
