Preferences for “Top” vs. “Bottom” can be Judged by their Face

HEALTH + GAYOLOGY

Interestingly, they chose the correct roles at a rate better than chance.

This Discover magazine article written by Seriously Science discusses research from two studies that suggests facial differences can be used to distinguish between top vs. bottom gay men.

“The participants were asked to look at 200 photographs of gay men found on an online dating site (100 tops, 100 bottoms) and categorize them as tops or bottoms. Interestingly, they chose the correct roles at a rate better than chance, although they were biased towards choosing the male-stereotypical ‘top’ role.”

Hmm, the BB Team might be a bit skeptical about the size of the surveys, but we agree with Seriously Science that our internal “gaydar” usually works!
