What Happens When A Bottom Dates A Bottom, Or A Top Dates A Top?

You can't really ask the person before you go out with them what sexual position they are. What happens when you go home one night and you find out that your partner only practices the same sexual position as you? Has this happened to anyone? How do you tell a top from a bottom? I imagine a bottom getting on a bed first with his butt in the air, and another bottom looking over and having his dick go limp. What a mess.

There is a guy that I really liked, and he seemed to really like me. But when we got to the sex, it turned out we were both tops. He absolutely refused to consider being versatile and I was absolutely going to have to be the bottom. I was willing to be versatile, to try other things. He refused to bend. After about 3 more times together, I realized that I wasn't going to be fully satisfied in the long run and he was not going to be satisfied with anything other than fucking me.

by Anonymousreply 2012/31/2010

It is this kind of post that makes me think that gay relationships are a joke. If you really love an appreciate someone, you should be making every effort to be considerate to their sexual needs. Just as they should be towards yours. The labels we place on ourselves don't make sense. If you cannot participate in sex for both partners benefit then you shouldn't be in any relationship at all.

Hold on to your seats because you may think this is a stupid question. Are sexually versatile men sexually confused? The reason why I ask this question is because I know this guy who had and is able to have sex with women, but he said he chooses to be with guys permanently. Also, a bottom or a top knows exactly what they want and who they. One is more passive the other is more aggressive.

Versatile to me is a major turn off. Its just for some reason I just don%E2%80%99t like it. I love men and I like my guy to be a top.

by Anonymousreply 3212/31/2010

I think they are not confused but just "versatile" . They like both forms of gay sex. Sometimes they get in the mood for a big stiff dick in their ass (this happens to me about once every eight and half years) and sometimes they just want to stick their dicks up inside a guy (this happens to me about every eight and a half hours).

I'm a top. But I'm not agressive, and I don't have a big dick (average length, thinner than average girth).

I really think that if you're a top, you're only really attracted to bottoms. I've never been in a situation where I hook up with a guy and he turns out to be a top. The guys I'm drawn to are bottoms. I dig their energy. I find fellow tops dull and passive. Bottoms are eager and I'm just naturally drawn to them.

And when I guy I suspect is a top hits on me, I get mildly offended. Yes, clearly I have issues.

They need to make rainbow pins with different colors emphasized. The tops can wear the pins with red emphasized and the bottoms can wear the pins with yellow emphasized. That way, no need to even discuss it ahead of time.

Plus, wearing rainbow pins would also really piss off the rightwing Xtians.

I had a boyfriend who had never been topped before. So we were the two tops you asked about, OP.

It took a while for him to get used to being fucked, but eventually he began to enjoy it. After than, we simply took turns topping, on successive evenings. It worked fine.

Okay, I'm a lesbian and very versatile about what I do in bed, but I don't really understand why the top/bottom thing is a problem. If you are just hooking up with somebody for sex, why *wouldn't* you first mention what you want to do, to make sure you're not about to waste your time?

And if you're dating somebody, with the possibility of a relationship in mind, it still doesn't seem like a huge deal to discuss your sexual preferences at some point before you actually get naked together--particularly if your sexual needs/interests are so rigidly fixed that you know you can't accommodate an otherwise appealing guy who won't be a top to your bottom or vice versa.

by Anonymousreply 7001/02/2011

Very few people are brave enough to be as sexually forward as you, r70, especially when getting fucked carries a stigma of submission, weakness and effeminacy. The exception is Manhunt. Online hookup site profiles allow us to specify everything we want without any conversation. The shame of admitting what we want and what we have to offer is mitigated. But even on Manhunt, you'll still find a lot of bottoms who lie because people think only tops have masculinity.

by Anonymousreply 7101/02/2011

My former fuck buddy was a bottom-only, but I didn't realize it until a few times after we had sex. I pretty much assumed he was versatile. We had sex regularly for about a year and a half, and although topping can be fun, sometimes I would think, "Why do I have to do all the work?". I know now I should have done what R70 suggests in her post. Just get it out in the open before you have sex, that way you won't have to waste your time.

by Anonymousreply 7201/02/2011

Dear [reply 70] thank you for observing what should be obvious to all of us, gay men. I can't believe how LBGT forums are still full of gay men who say that "everyone should be versatile", that if you are not versatile in bed you are stupid, lazy, something wrong with you, etc. That's about as smart as going around posting that gay men are gay because they don't know how to enjoy pussy. Sexual preferences are pretty innate, and for most people difficult to change. If you are a versatile gay man great, be accepting of gay men who are not just as much as you want people to be accepting of you.

Sometimes that can manifest as having to be a super masculine top because of men being conditioned to be the active, stronger gender, and trying to escape that conditioning that presents gay men as being more like women.

No one mentioned stupidity, laziness, or having something wrong in reference to tops/ bottoms. It just seems like a replication of 'normal' sex roles, and very much perpetuated by porn and gay culture in general. Preference is very different from adopting some rigid 'role'.

I'm not a passive top, but I do love aggressive bottoms. The best sex I've had has been with bottoms that are vocal, and make the first move. It's really a turn on when they grab me, and put me inside them. Only problem is when they turn out to be vers-bottoms, because I hate someone wanting to screw me. Seems so gross and demeaning.

I'm six feet tall. In 1983, I struck up a conversation with a very tall guy in a gay bar. We really hit it off. I invited him back to my place. Before he would go, he made sure I was OK with him being a total bottom, even though he was so tall. I had him numerous times over the next few years, until he met Mr. Right. Now I get a Xmas card from them.

We would invite in a third 1-2 times a week who was looking to get spit-roasted. We would put up post on Craigslist looking for a roastee who wanted 15" combined, and then pick. We would also invite returnees back. I eventually ended it since I grew tired of sharing him with others.

Sex is sex. People that identify with one role and refuse to do the other have more of a menta issue rather than a physical.
