‘I thought about asking the interviewer about his absolute fave sex position after that last question, but then I remembered how wildly invasive, strange and inappropriate that would be. Didn’t stop him though!’ Troye tweeted.

After asking Troye a series of ‘quickfire questions’, the journalist posed the question: ‘Top or bottom’.

In gay slang, the terms ‘top’ and ‘bottom’ refer to whether a man is an active or passive sexual participant.
