A bottom is someone who negotiates and consents to a specific activity/activities involving BDSM to be performed upon them by a topa.

For example, during flogging, the person swinging the flogger implement would be the top, while the person being struck with the flogger would be the bottom.

It is very important to note that this role does not necessarily involve any form of power exchange but, rather an exchange of some form of sensation or service, however in many cases regarding BDSM the role of bottom will be partaken by some form of s-type that does negotiate for some form of power exchange. It is further important to note that a D-type may also bottom for a scene.
