It’s as the title says, guys, what are the things about gay sex that people think are facts but are, in reality, actually myths? We’ve listed five below but please feel free to jump in the comments section and tell us about anything that we might have missed.

  1. Gay sex = anal sex. No, we don’t have anal sex all the time and no, penetration isn’t all there is to gay sex. And no, not every gay man loves anal sex.
  2. That the bigger or taller guy is top and the smaller or shorter guy is bottom. It can be the opposite as there are no rules for it, you know.
  3. The bigger the top’s dick is, the better the sex. As aforementioned in our previous article, and as cited by GMFA (the Gay Men’s Health Project), “studies show that to satisfy men during penetrative sex you need only 2.5 inches.” The reason being that the “male ‘G’ spot is located just at the top of the anal canal which is roughly 2 inches long. So you don’t need a big penis to hit his ‘G’ spot.”
  4. That we must either be a “top” and our partner a “bottom” or vice versa or else the relationship won’t work. This is a derivative of item #1 and again, yes, there are many ways in which we can feel pleasure apart from anal sex . There’s frotting, use of sex toys, mutual masturbation, intercrural sex, erotic massage, footjob, blow job to name a few. Bottom line, do whatever works best for you and your partner. 
  5. That we have sex all the time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year. We eat, sleep, go to school, socialize, and go to work as well like, you know, everyone else.
