Similar to Spotify Wrapped, queer online dating application Grindr in its annual "unwrapped" report released on Tuesday, December 28, showed Philippines has the "highest percentage of tops" in the world on 2021.

For tops searching for a perfect match to wrangle themselves, Vietnam emerges to have the largest proportion of bottom users. The list is followed by China, South Africa, Peru and Poland.

The geo-located hook-up application also revealed that countries with most versa users are Venezuela, Costa Rica, Romania, Russia and the Czech Republic. 

Tops, bottoms, and verses or versa are popular terms that describe sexual preferences within the queer community. Tops generally like to be the more dominant person or the giver during sexual intercourse, while bottoms follow the top's lead or the receiver, and verses or versa does both or generally like to switch between sexual positions of power with their partners. 

Head of Marketing Alex Black said the informal stats report that started in 2020 sheds light on users Grindr activity and only represents a subsection of Grindr's users, emphasizing that the online dating app itself only represents a subsection of the global queer community, 

"[It is] important to note that this is not meant as a comprehensive or scientific report on global queer sex & dating behavior," Black underscored in a press release. 

"[It is] meant as a fun and informal way to help our users get to know each other better, serve as an ice-breaker for conversations in the app, and provide some insights into Grindr activity trends from the year," he added. 

Launched in 2009, Grindr is one of the largest dating app for gay, bisexual, queer, and trans men. The application matches people based on the user's location using its location tracking features.
