do certain guys identify the way that they do? Gay men have been using sexual position as part of their identification for centuries.
After all, unlike women, cis-men have the physical capabilities through their anatomy for both receptive insertion or external penetration, and you can’t always tell by looking at someone which they prefer (or can you???).
If you’re on the prowl and want a to guarantee your “needs” will be met, the necessity to identify sexual preference becomes essential.
Hence, terms like “top”, “bottom”, and “versatile” (or “vers”) were born, becoming an all-too-important cultural norm in the gay world.
