ABOUT OUR CONCEPT

Bottom Basics is an intriguing one-stop online lifestyle resource and shop for discerningly cool gay, queer and bisexual men. The BB Team is led by our hearts, quirky humor and a healthy dose of imagination!

ABOUT BOTTOM BASICS 101

Explore our new infotainment lifestyle resource area, Bottom Basics 101. You can spend hours going through the two exciting sections: SEX + TRENDING GAY. You’ll find selective, informative videos and article links on sexual enjoyment, how-to, tips for basic beginner to power bottoms (and tops!), trends in sexual and mental health, looking good, culture and fun content.

The BB Team even coined and/or popularized a few new words, such as Gayology, which according to yours truly, defines pertinent issues and research in the “ologies” of biology, psychology and sociology impacting our lives. Plus, since we are all getting older, it’s a must to focus on Aging Gayfully (another new word for your gay vocabulary, which we hope is self-explanatory, but if not, it means living a full and gay life).

We promise to continually discover and deliver the most relevant, humorous and useful online material for you. We spend hours to curate so you don’t have to! Just easily click the links.

THE BB TEAM

We come from different backgrounds, by way of the backwater bayous of Louisiana and the golden hill streets of gay San Francisco. We’ve been great friends since the founding of Twitter, and have tweeted to each other thousands of times. We like to believe we are discerning gay men.

LOCATION: NEW YORK, NY

New York City. The Big Apple. The epicenter + epitome of fast-paced, modern urban LGBTQ+ life. More Broadway show queens. More RuPaul Drag Race queens. Gayborhoods galore including West Village, East Village, Chelsea, Hells Kitchen, Washington Heights and in Queens and Brooklyn boroughs. Gays live all over NYC plus across the river in New Jersey. Everything is bigger and better in the Big Apple. We're here and we're queer.

LOCATION: FORT LAUDERDALE, FL

Gay beaches. Gay bars. Gay boys. Greater Fort Lauderdale has over 30 gay bars and clubs, and over 200 LGBTQ+ owned businesses. There are clothing optional gay resorts. Top hotels front Sebastian Street Gay Beach. Haulover Nude Beach is just a short drive away. The Stonewall National Museum & Archives is the largest gay library in the US. The World AIDS Museum is here too. Heck, even the Fort Lauderdale mayor and vice mayor are gay, the Oakland Park mayor is gay, and in 2020 the entire Wilton Manors city commission was LGBTQ+. Living out + proud in South Florida.

Sometimes, my experiences with anal sex is pure, toe-curling euphoria that I wish would never stop. Other times, it feels like I’m being gutted and things can’t end quickly enough. As a result, I’ve always felt that, if my bottoming skills aren’t up to par, I should assume the position that I’m more confident in even if it doesn’t necessarily match my desires.
