What does "power" indicate before "top" or "bottom"?

How do power tops and power bottoms differ from just regular tops and bottoms, respectively? Please explain the distinction(s). TIA.

Pretty much summed up by, "I'll drive." I'm sorry to report this, but you're probably not one.

Google "Trace Michaels," OP. He's both.

A power bottom doesn't need to be gently pried open ever so slowly with fingers. He is pre-lubed, looser than a Reno slot machine, and ready to take command!

Oh so it's all about power. Seriously, I've heard the term and thought it meant someone who just bottoms a lot. So is a power bottom the same thing as a bossy bottom or demanding bottom that you guys talk about?

You'll know it when you feel it.

A power bottom is aggressive and dominant as opposed to submissive.

A power bottom fully relishes being a bottom and athletically and enthusiastically meets the unique challenges that being a bottom entails.

One of the strongest and most classic indicators of a power bottom is one that will push his hips into you as you are thrusting into him. "Throwing it back", so to speak. In this way, he is fucking you just as much as you are fucking him. Also a power bottom knows to arch his back when he's being fucked from behind because it allows for deeper penetration.

A power bottom is spreading his ass cheeks and begging for dick before he even gets his pants off. He never shuts up about what he wants in his ass. Ram it in his ass and he will squeal like a pig, more, harder, fuck me forever. Can you get a group to fuck me ? How many times can you fuck me? Will you fuck me tomorrow too?

[quote]Oh so it's all about power.

You heard the term "power bottom," and it did not occur to you it was "all about power"???

Some of you, I swear: Your mothers should have just exposed you on the side of the hill as babies after they discovered you were feeble-minded. Just like they did in ancient Rome.

"Power" has a motor or engine and does not need to be operated manually.

Power top is a little rapey, non?

I'm also wondering about the term "internal combustion engine." As near as I can figure out, it's called that because the process of combustion that makes it run must happen somewhere outside of it. Am I close?

The "poweriest" -- I just can't call this guy "most powerful" anything -- bottom I know is so controlling and bossy in every aspect of life, no one can stand being in a room with him except to give him a couple of hundred lashes with one or the other of his whips.

any good videos of a true power bottom at work?

A power bottom can't be homely. He has to be relatively hot looking.

I love a top who knows what he's doing and one who doesn't show it if he's annoyed by my inexperience.

In both instances they almost take full physical control, doing all the necessary maneuvers to pleasure the both of you. The cincher: a power top/bottom can make you cum without your having to touch yourself or exercise any significant effort.

Not to be confused with bossy tops/bottoms. Those just “direct” (or yell out orders), taking control mentally, but not necessarily physically.

The irony of ironies: a power bottom in a wheelchair. I’ve had one and that guy was able to suck me dry without my having to bat an eyelash.

Fraufish OP is doing "research" for her very first slashfic.

by Anonymousreply 2104/23/2013

Here's a great one, R17. Not sure all of these negative connotations apply. It's just a bottom who is capable of taking control and dominating the top. It also means a bottom who is actively, physically involved in fucking and doesn't just lie there. Someone who enjoys the experience of bottoming and is primed for it. All these other negative personality traits being ascribed to a power bottom aren't really accurate. They're just bad personality traits that some people have, I guess.

Power tops pile drive their cocks like porn stars. It is boring and I hate it. Give me a top with passion and tenderness (and a big fat cock). Hate the porn pile driving bs.

Power bottom (hope you can view it; I'm posting from my mobile)

Love power bottoms.

In the case of bottoms, "power" = "bossy."

by Anonymousreply 2607/02/2013

Are "bottoms" ever on top of the "top"?

Please read this alarming article about power bottoms.

Are you Mormon, OP?


If you have to ask, you can't possibly be from the 21st century. Or gay.

It indicates that you're dealing with a douchebag.
