A homosexual male (sometimes used to describe a homosexual female) who normally has the submissive role in sex, not pertaining to physical positioning.
At first notice he seems like a great dominant top, but when you get him in bed he turns into a shy, coy bottom.

A person of any above description who is more passive in a sexual situation. Allows the other person to set the tone/method of sex. May or may not include S & M, fantasy role play or fetishes. If it does include S & M, the bottom will be the receptor of bondage & pain play and will be the server of the top.
