Hot & Heavy Hunting for Bears

Hot & Heavy Hunting for Bears

Advice
I have a sweet tooth for bears. Yes, I like my men with meat on their bones, and if they have hair all over… woof, even better (and don’t get me started with a hairy back)! Usually, when I see bears in bars or hotels, they are always in groups. Most of the times they are laughing and having a very good time. The main reason why I like them? Because they seem to be comfortable in their own skin, and what the heck, because they turn me on! Any advice on how to break into a group or how to approach a bear? Thank you for any input! Alex (hungry and on the prowl in Los Angeles)   Hot: Have you tried dangling meat? Heavy: Oh be careful, remember…

Gay bear (GB) meets a really nice handsome straight bear (SB) at work… and because SB is really nice (Physical and Personal), and because a bear is a bear, GB falls in love with the SB. SB welcomes the GB’s friendly gestures, however, keeps flirting with women (Ewww). GB realize that there is no way he is going to get his hands (or any other limbs) around SB, but cannot help being too friendly with SB. Now, GB is in tight spot: he does not want to scare SB away by being too close, but at the same time…he cannot hold himself back, as when he sees SB, he jumps around him like a dog wanting to play Frisbee… WHAT DO YOU THINK GB SHOULD DO? PS : GB IS…

Gay Bear Blogs Bear-y Gay A subculture of hefty, hirsute gay men is attracting the attention of academics and social critics. LA Times: February 4, 2007 “Oh, by the way, in addition to 19th century American literature, I work on bear studies.” The interlocutors were perplexed. “Bear studies?” one asked. “Do you mean bears in literature — say, William Faulkner’s story ‘The Bear’ ?” Someone else suggested “Winnie the Pooh” — perhaps the candidate worked on children’s literature?
