You might have heard the word ‘vers’ floating around in queer spaces. Here’s what it means.
What is ‘vers’?
Vers is short for versatile. It simply means that if you’re queer, you are happy to sometimes be a ‘top’ (ie: a giver), and sometimes be a bottom (ie: a reciever).
The term was originally created for gay men, the most obvious category of peeps who are able to both ‘give’ and ‘take’, but now it is commonly used among other people in the queer community.
Can you be vers as a queer woman?
Yes. As a fully queer woman you can still be a top (strap on or no strap on! It just means you tend to one ‘doing’ more. You’re the giver. You’re the actioner.
As a queer woman you can be a bottom also. Otherwise known as a ‘pillow princess’, a female bottom is a receiver. She likes to just lay down and let it alllll happen to her.
So a queer woman who is a vers is someone who likes to switch between these. Sometimes she is a top and sometimes she is a bottom, she’s fluid.
Can you be vers as a bisexual person?
Absolutely! Bisexual peeps plus others open to all the genders get to really make the most of being vers. They are the most fluid of them all.
For example, as a bisexual man, you can enjoy being a top with a woman and a bottom with a man, but you can also enjoy being a top with a man and a bottom with a woman. You basically can really explore all of the different dynamics that gender has to offer!
Can you be vers as a straight person?
We don’t see why not. If you are a straight woman who sometimes loves to peg your male parter, but also sometimes enjoys taking the D yourself classic style, then you too can describe yourself as vers, though the term is more commonly used in the queer community.
So there we have it. Vers is simply a term to describe someone who sometimes gives and sometimes takes, no matter what their sexuality.
