Does height alter your perception

    Seen a couple recent threads on being height impaired ;). At 5 ft 7, I'd say that describes me. So does height factor in to your preference as a top or bottom? Some questions that comes to mind:
    -if you are a bottom, do you prefer to be with men taller then you? What if a guy was significantly shorter then you, how do you view him initially?
    -if you are a top, do you have a preference for shorter guys? Or do you prefer to top guys even taller then you?
    -for guys that are versatile, does a guys height influence what you prefer to do with him?
    -if you are shorter, is topping a guy significantly taller then you a turn on?
    -does height become less of a factor once you get to know the guy?

    For myself, guys about my height or shorter bring out a desire to be the top. But those feelings seem to diminish the taller a guy is. Never been with someone 6 ft +, but I can't imagine topping them.

    I also wonder if the height thing is more an issue for those of us that are at either extreme, but not as big an issue for average height guys?

    I'm versatile and 5'4''.

    If I'm in the mood to top or flip-flop, I tend to look for guys around my height -- 5'2'' - 5'7''. If I'm in the mood to just bottom, I look for guys significantly taller than me -- 5'11''+

    Edit: That being said, I tend to bottom more because just finding someone around my height is hard.

    Honestly? It does a little. Probably because of looks and I'm usually looking down at a guy. Ever notice how if taken at an angle... some guys don't have a double chin or their chubby cheeks go away? Yeah...


    I'll answer some...
    What if a guy was significantly shorter then you, how do you view him initially?
    Initially I think, "Heh... You're going to top me? Overpower me first..." and then I go into sweetheart mode and the whole top/bottom bullshit doesn't matter.

    -for guys that are versatile, does a guys height influence what you prefer to do with him?
    Kind of in a way. Except I usually see it in weight more than height. Their build is more of a dominant trait in my mind.

    -if you are shorter, is topping a guy significantly taller then you a turn on?
    I've only ever been "shorter" once and it was only by an inch. We kind of "fit" perfectly together for everything. It was nice.

    -does height become less of a factor once you get to know the guy?
    Yes. It's not really a factor for me in the first place as I look for more than sex.

    As per my "heightist" thread, I like 'em tall. I prefer taller than me, but at 6'4", that doesn't usually happen. As a bottom, the mechanics seem to work a bit better for making out while getting plowed...so if a guy's shorter, there's just less making out while in the act.

    PFFFT. I'm 6'2". Deal with it.
    xD

    I'm 5'7" and virtually every guy that I've topped has been 5'10" and above. In fact, the majority of them have been taller than 6 feet. Ergo, speaking from personal experience. it's not about the height but, rather, it's about the guy's ability to make your head spin when he fucks you. Significantly, as a former competitive college grappler, I can take on massive dudes and not be intimidated by them. Many of these dudes become real pussies and subs in the privacy of my bedroom. Just saying.

    As a bottom I don't really care, I'm short so all the guys I've been with have been taller. Usually between 6ft1 and 6ft4…
    But I guess if I were a top, I would find it kinda funny to have to top a dude much taller than me but i guess once in bed it doesnt really care

    Yes, when talking to someone taller than me, my neck starts hurting. I always say "Let's sit the fuck down, shall we?"

    i'm 5'5" and i've been hanging out with this great guy that's 6'2". i've been more of a top with him. i've dated guys a lot taller than me and usually i'm the bottom. the height difference doesn't matter in bed for me. i always look up to everyone anyway because most people are taller than me. that being said, guys around my height or shorter are a lot of fun to mess around with. icon_smile.gif

    WoW. Consider this - i'm 6'2". I'm a bottom. Nothing turns me on more than being railed by a guy shorter than me - 5'6 - 5'9 being ideal. Getting nailed by a tall guy is...meh.

    I've noticed a distinct trend that that when random strangers hit on me, it's because they notice that I'm tall (6'4) and they want to bottom/be dominated by me. They also end up acting extra stupid and I quickly lose interest...

    height does nothing much if the difference were in 30% => , if more then 30% there will be some technical issue on performing...that is also on the proportion on the upper body and the lower body to be a top or a bottom.

    Tall guys always bottom better cause when they bend their posture is always right for shorter guys, even on their back flat.
