Should You Top or Bottom During Anal Sex?

Gay Anal Sex


Dear Ramon,

Is it better to give or receive anal sex?

Dear Multi-tasker,

Giving or receiving, topping or bottoming, catching or pitching (or whatever you want to call it) is a matter personal preference. Try both roles and keep an open mind. You don't have to pick one or the other, many gay men like both (this is called being versatile). I will admit that receiving anal sex can take time to get used to and is sometimes an "acquired taste," but a little practice and experience helps tremendously. Just be sure to practice safe sex!
