Gay men feel more misunderstood: There’s nothing more personal than dating – it exposes our true selves to the world, in the hope that we’ll find someone who can accept us for who we are.Feeling self-conscious can really complicate things! Careful cultivation of our own sense of self will always help you feel more prepared for finding ‘the one’.Sex is not a matter of notches in a stick; it’s a matter of intimacy and pleasure. Many of the tissues involved, especially with penetrative gay sex, are sensitive and easy to tear.Third, and on a similar topic, sex between men does not need to include penetration.
Never feel pressured to penetrate one another, especially if both of you do not enjoy it. There is nothing to say that two self-avowed tops cannot have lots of adult fun together. More likely than not, it’s him doing something wrong, not you.
Getting gay sex straight is hard, every pun intended.
There are lots of things that can go right and wrong between the sheets when two men are involved.
Gay men are more ‘anxious about the future’: Gay respondents were more likely to describe themselves as ‘anxious about the future’ and, when it comes to dating, this can be cumbersome.
Whether we’re worried about settling for the wrong person or on the brink of long-term territory, our fears about the future can inhibit us from making a commitment.
