An older, established man who likes his scotch aged and his boys, young. Photos RSS. Someone can be a top without putting their dick inside someone. No scientific study has ever been conducted as to what percentage of the gay and bisexual male population prefers any given role. I miss the criteria people use to indentify tops and bottoms, so this article is useless.

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. Seriously, Science? We highlight the funniest, oddest, and just plain craziest research from the PubMed research database and beyond.
