What is a bottom?

I may need some help here but I have always thought a bottom would be just a receiver, while a versitile is one who likes it both ways and a top would be just a giver. I am fairly new to this so I may have it all screwed up. Of necessity a bottom is somewhat submissive in that they are submitting to having someone penetrate their body but not in the sense of being tied up, humilitated or submitting to any deliberate pain. So if I am way off base please correct me. Also i would like to know what kind of herbal supplement do the trick.

bottom is usually used to refer to someone who, only during sex play, is subordinate to another. never heard versatile used to describe a "switch" before, but yes they go back and forth in role playing, a top is the dominante force dictating what goes on. top and bottom are used to describe subordinate and dominate role playing, not usually used but those who are submissive by nature and carry these traits outside the bedroom, and those who are Dominate by nature and carry these traits outside sex play. ~ [slaveslut30]

With regards to Top/bottom, etc.. it is typically used when refering to Dominance/submissiveness. In the BDSM world, and it does transfer into everyday life a little too, the Top is the Dominant one and is not just the "penetrator". The bottom is the submissive personality in the relationship... and that doesn't always mean that the bottom gets penetrated....

It truly is about personality, assertive personalities, or ones that typically are "in charge" (you know these people, they are around you in the work place, and the community - and always seem to be "in charge" of what they are involved in. Those are the "Top". The personalities that kind of take a backseat to the decision making.. that follow vs. lead.. well, those are obviously the bottoms.

Then to screw the whole thing up.. there are people like me.. I'm a switch. I will take charge in the absense of leadership, but if I am around a strong leader I kind of fall in a 1/2 step behind them (figuratively of course). I like a strong assertive (somewhat aggressive) man, that will take control when the situation is right...however if I am around a weaker personality.. or a passive person, I take charge and become the Top.

I know.. clear as mud right?

Now what kind of herbal supplement are you looking for.. one to make you submissive or Dominant? I don't think there is such a thing.. I think it comes from within.

Without knowing what a bottom is, how did you end up with LibertyBottom for a handle? If you don't mind me asking....
