But believe it or not, sometimes gay relationships don't start with sex. don't know what his sexual role is before your first conversation or your first date. Spending a night with two tops is pretty alluring to a bottom (if I say so.

Or we at least try. A friend and I started seeing each other this summer when a friendly one-on-one camping trip turned hot and heavy real quick. I am a Q cis-lady and they are a transmasculine cutie. One thing though. It turns out, well… we are both bottoms. It seems like there are two issues here: Setting boundaries is obviously important, both with yourself and with partners, but so is building a foundation of trust in which you both know what you want and have communicated it, and in which you both feel not only safe saying no but excited about saying yes.
For example, if you want your partner to whip you around, make sure they know that. This can be a devastating, relationship-quashing problem, or it can be a fun thing that you happen to have in common that might even bring you closer together. But the great thing about sex is that you get to make it up as you go and the great thing about being queer is you get to have lots of practice rewriting things to make them your own, which is what you both have to do to get the sex life you want.
You can both be doing the same thing but imagining something different, rewriting the acts to be what you want them to be as they happen. In other words, you both have to be your own tops. For instance, I love doing all sorts of things but my primary relationship has a power play dynamic in which I very consensually have very little power.
When she does them she is all top, and when I do them I am all bottom, and it lets us both experience a broader sexual palette within the dynamic we love and also have the literal best time. Discussion will be key. This is actually the case in all types of dynamics. Though other people will obviously affect and be able to help you, take responsibility for your own headspace.
For instance, if you know a snack always helps you return to feeling normal, bring your your own so you can come back on your own if you need to. Your sex life could get WILD. Top and bottom, how heteronormative. Good for you. Most gay males end up where you are right now.
Too bad it takes some so much time. Lee G Peters. Marry me Robert. Totally love your response. I miss the criteria people use to indentify tops and bottoms, so this article is useless.

Registration only takes a few minutes to complete. Logging in I can kinda see this from both sides. Maybe Im inferring too much but you seem like you can still get pleasure out of being a top even though its not your most favorite position. Since he says its out of the question for him, I take that as to me he gets little to no pleasure out of it and it might even be a turn off for him. At the same time he should be willing to try to satisfy you sexually since you are both pretty much in the same situation. Im not sure what the solution is.
I just dont think he's a terrible person for saying that topping it out of the question for him.pro.bannon.ie/8760-track-messenger.php
You Need Help: Two Bottoms, One Relationship | Autostraddle
Yeah it seems selfish but if you look alittle deeper its probably more than that. To me, the majority of the time, it's the same feeling that I get when someone has a kink that doesn't do anything for me. I'll be a good sport and I'll play along, but other than the satisfaction of knowing that he's turned on, I can't say I'm too into it.
It doesn't feel anywhere as good as bottoming does. Like I said in another reply though, I do get in the mood for it occasionally though. In his defense, he mentioned he would be nervous about not knowing the first thing about topping in the same breath as when he said it was out of the question. I think he's more self-conscious about his performance and his reluctance to do it is hyperbole. I don't really want to bring up the subject so soon again after we talked about it just last night, but I'm hoping to get some clarification about what he meant.
And if you shirk that responsibility, you only have yourself to blame for the inevitable and foreseeable consequences. Hey, is there any kind of lube that's safer for anal? Maybe mineral oil? It gives me some rather fond memories, sorta, from when I was learning to masturbate haha. I didn't know that lubes can hurt anal tissue though.
That's making me concerned. The studies mentioned above do tell us that all lubes are not created equal: We have now seen this in one clinical study and a few laboratory-based studies. Given what we have learned from this handful of studies, it seems likely that osmolarity plays an important role. Lubes with higher osmolarity are associated with higher levels of inflammation and cell damage, which may explain the higher rates of rectal STIs among lube users in one study One piece of the puzzle is the need to determine if lubes caused the rectal inflammation or cell damage observed in some studies.
Other factors could have this effect. We need to consider the following: Some level of inflammation occurs naturally in the rectum, even among people without digestive or gastrointestinal problems. AI itself, as well as enemas and douching, causes some temporary damage.

Most of that damage—if not all—repairs itself within minutes or hours after it occurs. So we must be able to compare: That's straight from the one study, so take what I say very lightly because it hasn't been researched properly, but from what I gather water based lubes because water is found in your rectum through digestion would be the best, lubes with the least chemicals, and this is just a wild guess, but I think maybe lubes that contain natural products that we eat anyway may be better.
There is already water content that goes into you digestive system, and natural food products that do. I'm uncut, so sometimes I don't even really need lube because everything glides more gentle; even with a condom. Everyone already knows anal sex is the easiest way to transmit STI's but if you are with someone you trust the main thing you are worrying about is if the lubricant does damage. My ex is going to med school, and he was very very skeptical about the safety of the products because he understands human anatomy and knows that we didn't evolve to handle putting things up there, so it should be done with caution.
Have fun though, it obviously doesn't do widespread harm or there would be plenty of anecdotes, I'd just make sure you don't abuse something that isn't heavily researched yet. I'm extra cautious of everything so I am a bit of a prude so you should take that into consideration; you are getting advice from someone who generally worries about that stuff and isn't as sexually liberal.
I think it'll be tough. I met my all top husband as a self-identified vers and it's been rocky at times. Tag-teaming "special guest stars" when I'm getting bored of one role is our workaround, but for two complete bottoms Double-sided dildo?
I get in the mood to top occasionally on a whim like I get in the mood for sushi or listening to a Bowie album. I want to top him a few times to keep him around cus I like him so damn much. Not sure that I can do it each time though. Also, double-sided dildos would be kinda weird, haha. I have so much fun with the two guys riding a double-ended dildo config on our backs and ass to ass that I think it might be some kind of fetish.
