This study will be looking at the influence gay men's age and position (top, bottom etc..) have on their mate preferences. The role these play in individuals personal lives is very important, and so this study will be using interviews to discuss topics around dating, coming out, prejudice around age and positions themselves and age-gap relationships.

This study was approved on the 18/11/19 by Cardiff Metropolitan university's ethics panel.

About the researcher

I myself am a young gay research with experience with age-gap relationships and so am interested to see how this and other prejudices may manifest in the dating lives of other gay men.
