First of all, for any of you that has no idea what the hanky code is it’s a code within the homosexual (male) community that transpires to everyone what that particular couple/individual is into/doing. I’m pretty shitty at describing so here’s the hanky code more detailed. Next, I should probably explain a top, a bottom and versatile.
When it comes to sex, a top is the guy that does the penetrating. Just like in life there are different terms for different types of tops:
Pitcher or Total Top: Gives it 100% of the time; does not receive
Power Top: Not to be confused with a “top” in homosexual sex. A power top is rougher, faster, harder and, oftentimes, relentless in penetrating the receiver.
Versatile Top: A versatile top is comfortable with a shared dominance in gay relationships; however sexually, enjoy being a top more than a bottom.
When it comes to sex, a bottom is the guy on the receiving on, meaning he takes it. They’re the ones that are getting penetrated. There are different types of bottoms:
Catcher or Total Bottom: Completely submissive to his partner – not dominant at all, takes it 100% of the time.
Nelly: To be a nelly bottom is when you, the gay man, strive to have your anus pounded with another guy’s penis.
Power Bottom: While a bottom is usually submissive to his partner, a power bottom enjoys maintaining control over the top and/or the penetration, the normally dominant role in gay male sex. Power bottoms supposedly have skilled tongues. They give the best blowjobs, fellatio and rim jobs.
Versatile Bottom: A versatile top is comfortable with a shared dominance in gay relationships; however sexually, enjoy being a bottom more than a top.
When it comes to sex, guys that are versatile are basically up for anything, meaning they don’t mind bottoming or topping. It’s not an issue for them. More details about these terms here.
