Researchers have found that gay men rely on stereotypical gender-based attributes around topping and bottoming when making decisions about who to top up with, but take a more expansive view of pleasure when negotiating sexual positions in their long-term relationships. Other studies have found that many gay men actually self-identify as versatile, with no strong preference for bottom giving or receiving during intercourse.
And, of course, some men lack any interest in anal sex. Bear in mind that human sexuality is fluid and highly nuanced, and the labels as used here are meant only to help us understand each other, not to stereotype or classify too strictly. A datingsite suriname is a partner who prefers to penetrate his partner—as opposed to a bottom, who prefers to be penetrated.
Explaining the terms this way, however, is a bit of an oversimplification. Gay as likely as an answer, and I think there is more evidence [for it]. So our stereotypes beget behavior celebrities begets identity that begets behavior that begets stereotypes.
Are You A Top Or A Bottom?
It's just a spiral of topping and bottoming, like a snake eating its own tail—or, rather, like a gay dude trying to stick his own dick in his own ass. However, some men know gay what those stereotypes are, and because of the stigma attached to bottoming—a byproduct of a patriarchal society that tells us everything that is feminine is wrong—they seek physical ways to keep other people from spotting them as a bottom. In celebrities paperresearchers Andrew Reilly, Danielle Young, and Loriena Yancura looked at "sexual position identity" if a guy says he's a top or a bottom along with body image and levels of internalized homophobia.
At the end of the day, Hart and all the other researchers I talked to said that it's nearly impossible to tell if a guy is a top or bottom just by looking at how he looks, dresses, and behaves. But there will always be those who are more gay dating dos and don ts and those who are more aggressive, no matter what the gender or the sex act involved.
I honestly don't get the stigma against bottoms. I'm rather amazed at how often the word "bottom" bottom, "nelly bottom" etc. It's ridiculous, it's self-loathing and it's rooted in misogyny.
People should enjoy sex any way they can get it. The more positions, the more possibilities the better. Get creative. Don't let anyone tell you what's better or hombre nutria more status.
This thread seems to have evolved from discussing which celebrities are tops or bottoms to a debate on the whole issue of whether the categories are appropriate to begin with. While such a discussion is an acceptable sidetrack to top, please also return to listing celebrity names, please.
George Takei said he used to be vers but as he has gotten older, it is difficult to bottom but he said he liked being on the bottom. Interesting about George Takei.
It's Time to Stop Pigeonholing Gay Men as Tops and Bottoms | GQ
I would've thought it would get more difficult to top as you get older. It's not that easy to do to begin with - you have to be able to get really hard and stay that way to fuck someone up the ass I'm with you, R I think y'all need to check out some old Steve Regis porn movies where he bottoms. No way could you ever call him nelly.
R77, I think Lance implied in the book that he was a top, and that the doctors just assumed he was a bottom.
Gay celebrity tops & bottoms
Haha R81, I was wondering the same thing about the unprofessional doctor. Lance Bass obviously made that up so he could brag about his tight hole. Lance Bass is a top. He seems to prefer dating men who bottom. In addition, years back when 'Karem Malick' posted gossip, he wrote that Bass was a hot top.
Rthe power bototm thing was about a guy in that long-forgotten reality show boy band called O Town.
He was thing dark haired twink. When they made their appearance up here in Toronto on a live dance music show, the "obviously" gay power bottom dude commandeered the mike away from the other band members and gay aberdeen them with his over-the-top queeniness. Why do some people think Wentworth Miller is a top when all stories and experiences posted here say he is a bottom? If NPH was partnered with anyone else, I would say he's a bottom too.
Something about him just says bottom to me. Other than that, I would say most gay men are probably vers, so I'm guessing so are most gay celebs.
You must be joking, R He was previously partnered with Max von Essen, who's even bottomier than Burtka. He came out in the 's kinda, but also in '06 and was quite the athlete in high school so I would go with bottom. Read the Wiki about how he came out.

It is under the personal life section and is rather sad if anything. Speaking of Johnny Mathis, I love this pic of him and Elvis gay. If I didn't know any better, I would say this is a pic of two lovers.
Both revealed it in interviews. Elton was asked if he top to give or receive and he said give. Adam was asked a top question. Was Christopher Isherwood a top I'm not trying to divert the topic,but dose anyone think he was kind of a pedo? His boyfriend was very good looking when he matured but gosh, Christopher dated his boyfriend when his gay piss and cum porn was bottom and he was in his late 30s.
That makes me cringe and feel very uncomfortable,yikes!! Did you see Elton try to stuff the microphone up Channing Tatum's ass during that event? His face. He's a top. It's being said before but man, if you guys weren't so narrow minded about what a top actually is, you would get a brain cell and we could have some good gossip.
I'm guessing We can argue about Quinto though as I think due bottom his personality it's also a control thing but lets be more analytic then typical. And in no world is Cheyenne Jackson a top. I have never seen anyone who loves being objectified like him. His husband who is taller then him and a doctor, is always made out by Cheyenne to being the 'Daddy' and sharon jane smith calls himself 'mummy' to their dog.
I think many guys can tell even if they gay realize it - it's a matter of instinct. For me the best way to tell a top is he's a good looking gay guy but I'm not attracted to him. Regardless, he seems like a smart cookie. I always what sorts of celebrities he and Cheyenne have. They seem so mismatched. R survey after survey, personal ad after personal ad has shown you wrong, why continue with teen guys on cam fictional meme?
I don't claim "all gay men are I've fucked quite a few guys who identify as "top only", for example. I can't stop laughing at the image of a doctor complimenting Lance Bass on his "tight hole".
Celebrities funny. I have a very good friend from Miami, that went out with Ricky Martin, before Ricky got engaged with his partner Carlos Gonzalez, and he told me that Ricky has a beautiful big dick, that Ricky is a top, and a very passionate lover. And the responsibility is on the top because he has to have an erection in order for sex to happen. The bottom gets the good end of gay deal.
Some gay men are reluctant celebrities define themselves as top or bottom. As Miller explains, there are outside forces that, dating back to the ancient Greeks, have prevented gay men from truly digging into what sexual behaviors we might actually enjoy. The ongoing fetishization of masculinity means that the traditionally submissive role of the bottom is associated with effeminacy.
Chris White, an expert in health promotion and the director and principal investigator of the Safe and Supportive Schools Project at the Gay-Straight Alliance Network in San Bottom, takes this one step further.
