The Walking Dead: World Beyond star, who goes by they/them pronouns, is in a queer, polyamorous marriage with Bethany C. Meyers, having tied the knot in 2018.
Asked about the stigma which still surrounds men - gay or straight - enjoying receptive anal sex, sexually-fluid Nico replies: “I think that’s just a problem with the a**hole in general, and deeming certain body parts as dirty or filthy.

“I think that is a deep-rooted issue with the body in general, whether you’re male-bodied or female-bodied.”
The 32-year-old star – who has previously described themself as 'versatile' sexually – goes on: “But I think specifically for men to be put in this ‘sub-position’ is not masculine, when anyone who’s bottomed ever knows you need to man the f*** up to get the job done."

Nico – also known for the TV show Younger – adds: “So I don’t think there’s anything more masculine than bottoming, let's be honest.”
Can we get that on a T-shirt, please?
