Ask a Homo: Tops and Bottoms

Welcome back to Ask a Homo, a judgment-free zone where the gays of Outward answer questions about LGBTQ politics, culture, etiquette, language, and other queer conundrums. This week, J. Bryan Lowder plows through a few questions about tops, bottoms, and the mechanics of anal sex. (Note: This entry may be slightly NSFW depending on how your boss feels about gloved fingers.)

If there are questions you’ve been dying to ask a member of the real rainbow coalition, this is your chance. Send your queries—for publication—to, and please put “ASK A HOMO” in the subject line. Note that questions may be edited.

J. Bryan Lowder is a Slate associate editor and the editor of Outward. He covers life, culture, and LGBTQ issues.
