(Definition a) -- "OK, in a day when 'Muscle Bear' has started to nudge out older descriptions like "virile, red-blooded, hairy-chested American male
, who do you think is really a muscle bear? Can you put it in terms I'd understand?" -- "Oh, you mean gay porn! Blake Nolan
, Dean Coulter
, probably Arpad Miklos
who wears his muscles so well, possibly Ross Hurston
, the power bottom
from England, and maybe the very hairy hunky Ray Harley
. If Ray grew a beard
and played the sexual top
more often, I think he'd qualify.
But to me, the quintessential Muscle Bear is Tim Kelly
in the HOM
gay-porn vids. Woof!"
(Definition b) -- "Mary's straight-as-an-arrow husband Lochinvar is six foot one, hairy, a little chunky
but still in good shape from outdoor work
. He's forty-three and wears a goatee
. Is it safe to call him a muscle bear?" -- "Well, you'd better check it out with Mary to see if he would get upset at any gay inference
. But if Mr. L. grows a beard
and starts hanging out in taverns every evening, perhaps Mary should start worrying. And why are YOU so concerned, might I ask?"
