Bear lingo

BosGuyTwo weeks ago Provincetown was overrun with guys who self identified as a Twink, Boi, etc… Now Bear Week in Ptown brings a whole new group of guys.  Not up on your gay slang? Never fear, that is why I describe my blog as “educational”.

Cub – a younger (or younger-looking) version of a Bear, typically, but not always, with a smaller frame.
Otter – A slimmer or less hairy Bear regardless of age.
Muscle bear – A Bear whose size derives from muscle rather than body fat.
Panda – A Bear of Asian heritage.
Polar bear – An older Bear whose facial and body hair is predominantly or entirely white or grey.

  1. Call me a traditionalist, but “Bears” were always well-muscled.
