2015-05-18-1431962062-5981619-ScreenShot20150518at11small.jpgIn my latest video I break down the psychological nuts and bolts of why we tend to label and judge sexual roles and the gay men who fill them -- pun intended. I describe how this common practice can be limiting, both individually and collectively, as well as what we can do to challenge bottom shaming so that we can all grow, heal, and have better sex. Heels up!

I can admit now, after years of "doing the work," that I was terrified of bottoming, because I didn't want to be perceived as anything other than a man. I convinced myself that topping was the only dignified position. Here are my top five "learnings" from my cake-clenching, chastity-belt-wearing days.
