“Top, Bottom, Versa?” — every gay guy who has ever hooked up with a fellow gay guy knows this line by heart. For the uninitiated, top means the penetrator (in an@l sex), bottom means the penetrated, and versa means either (thus versatile), depending on the person’s partner or mood.
You can think of these terms as labels that, at a certain perspective, can be helpful. Some people think labeling is evil (exag!) but I do think it can be helpful too. If for instance you are indeed hooking up with a fellow gay guy, how can it be easier to find out if you two are compatible in bed? In just three words you can sum up, somehow, the role you prefer to play in the next possibly exciting moments to come: top, bottom, versa?
Of course not all hook ups end up in one’s top-ping or bottom-ing. Sometimes it can be just mutual JO, or oral, etc. (Wow this post is getting to be really for mature audience ha!) Sometimes, the “top, bottom, versa” concept gets unnecessarily extended here too (not that I agree with it). Some people associate being top as the dominant one, the “Laila Dee” kind of guy (he’ll just lie there and enjoy getting sucked); being bottom as the giving, more feminine one, the one who enjoys singing with a meaty microphone. I don’t really subscribe to these stereotypes/caricatures but for some people these labels and concepts work, and it makes their hooking up conversations more efficient. As long as people acknowledge that such labels can change (I believe our preferences can be dynamic), then all is well and good.
