Definition: Unlike the "top", the partner being penetrated during gay anal sex is referred to as the "bottom." The word is in direct reference to the person on the bottom position (usually the penetrated partner) during traditional missionary sex; however, the term is used universally regardless of position. Some associate a gay bottom with being the less dominate partner in a sexual or romantic relationship, but that's not always the case. Being the sexual bottom or bottoming is a preference and may differ from established dominance roles.

Anal Sex Basics: Gay men aren't naturally born to have anal intercourse. Bottoming takes practice and preparation. Men who engage anal penetration, or bottoming, can have a more enjoyable experience by following these anal sex techniques.
