In the queer community, the issue of whether someone is a top or bottom is frequently a hotly debated subject. Understanding the power dynamics in top/bottom relationships can help people make informed decisions about their sexual relationships and sexual encounters, regardless of whether it’s a matter of sexual preference, sexual compatibility, or something else.
In this article, we will explore what it means to be a top or bottom and the best position for first-time sexual encounters.
Within the queer community, gay men have the unique opportunity to explore their sexuality in ways that heterosexual relationships do not. In particular, gay men can explore the roles of “top” and “bottom” in a sexual relationship. This exploration can involve many sexual acts, positions, and preferences that both partners enjoy. By understanding top and bottom power dynamics, gay men can better understand their sexual preferences and find compatible partners.
So, who is a top or a bottom in queer relationships? Let’s find out the deeper meaning of these frequently used terms.
If you are a social media user following LGBTQ pages on twitter or those comic gay pages on Tiktok, then the terms top and bottom are not news to you. You may have read them in their stories or on other queer people bios who identify themselves as either a top or bottom.
A top is a queer man or queer woman who prefers to be in control during sex. Tops usually take an active role during sex by penetrating, either by penis or strap, during anal sex, giving oral sex, fingering, and any other activities during their sexual act. Being a top doesn’t always refer to the mechanics of how you do sex because queer sex can take many forms. Instead, it describes a power dynamic where one person is in charge while the other takes the lead.
There is also a subsection of tops called stone tops. Have you ever heard of that? If not yet, we have the answers for you. A stone top is someone who exclusively enjoys to “give” during queer sex. Typically, stone tops don’t desire any sexual activity in which their mate caress them in return, they only give but do not receive.
The word “bottom” is a label used to describe the receptive partner in penetrative sex. To simplify it, a bottom is the person who gets the penetration during sexual activity, and they often take the lead in directing the sexual encounter.
Bottoms always enjoy giving up control during sexual intercourse. But that doesn’t necessarily exclude bottoms from being assertive and active during sex. Just like in tops, bottoms also have a category called the Power bottom.
Power bottoms give directions or instructions to those topping them on how to make them feel maximum pleasure during queer sex. Since power bottoms like to be pleased when having sex, specifically anal sex, they are always vocal and tease you in a very demeaning and playful manner when they are not enjoying it or when you do it the wrong way. So, if your mate is a power bottom, you must know how to satisfy him and make him enjoy your penis game.
While some bottoms may occasionally be amenable to topping, some bottoms prefer never to be the one performing oral sex or penetrating. Like stone tops, stone bottoms are strict with their boundaries when it comes to caressing their partners and prefer not to be the one performing oral sex or penetrating them.
In gay relationships, both top and bottom partners may engage in penetrative and receptive sexual acts. For example, a top may penetrate their partner with a penis or other objects, while the bottom is the receptive partner. This can also occur between lesbians, with one person penetrating the other with a strap-on or sex toy.
Now that you know who is a top and bottom, choosing a suitable sex position that will be suitable for you and your spouse should never be a problem. You’ve probably watched gay porn from different porn sites and seen the different types of gay sex positions and wished to try one or two of them.
Even though some positions are similar to many heterosexual sex positions, gay couples also have a wide variety of sexual positions that they can explore. Whether it’s anal sex, oral sex, or other queer sexual acts, there are countless possibilities for pleasure and the power dynamic between two men.
Here are some of the top best sex positions for queer men and what makes them unique and special.

It is the best sex position during sex because as you and your mate are face-to-face, it enables you to kiss, connect, and even have wild dirty sex talk with your lover. It’s also suitable for those new to anal intercourse, as it allows the top person to go slowly and control the depth and speed of penetration.
