Are you ready for sex? Chances are if you're reading this your body is ready to seal the deal. But are you ready emotionally? Have you prepared to top, bottom, or looked into other ways to be intimate like frottage, rimming, or oral?

And these days you can't be too safe or sure a guy is "clean" by the way he looks or from what he says. Given that, have you thought ways to be safe?

Sex may seem simple: give, receive, relieve. But, sex can be far more complication, especially if you're not prepared.

Let's start with emotions
Some guys can be physical without experiencing emotional connections. Others, however, prefer some level of emotional bonding before being intimate. Have you thought about where you lay on the spectrum? More on sex and emotions.

Now, on to preparing to top or bottom
It's obvious how to top or bottom: One person penetrates and the other receives. But, how do you know if you're a top or bottom? And even them, are you a good top or bottom? And, are you prepared to do either?

Do you know how to be safe?
Once you've chosen to have sex, there are a number of ways to reduce the risk of contracting an STD. About.com STD Guide Elizabeth Boskey, Ph.D. says, "First, you need to know yourself. Second, you need to know your partner. And third? You need to know about condoms and safer sex." Track these safer sex tips and ways to avoid getting an STD.

Not into anal?
Despite the common myth, not all gay men like anal sex. There are many ways men can be intimate with one another without having anal sex. Two very common ways are intercrural sex and frottage. Both of these types of non-penetrative sex can be used as foreplay or for complete intimacy.

Oral sex
Pace yourself and relax to perform good oral sex.
