They need to get the poster illustrator back to add some pox to those beasts.

Having worked there one summer, Bear Weekend is the most fun.

Everyone always returns home from Bear Week with some sort of kennel cough or worse.

John Waters wrote extensively about Ptown in his latest book and he said the bears have become a lot fatter in recent years. Is this true or was he just being a cunt?

^ There is a clique of bears into gaining excessive weight. A dear friend of mine has wrecked his health because of it. Diabetic ulcers, sleep apnoea, he’s a mess. I worry about him.

Probably not for long.

^That’s what I worry about. He lives alone and has no family close by. He has been hospitalised several times recently.

My ex went there last year and his whole house caught Covid after the first night at the A House.

No twink weekend?

Oy. Bear weekend is a fucking nightmare. The guys are either morbidly obese, or muscle nellies with beards who prance around in cunty cliques. All passing around Covid and kennel cough.

Plus for the money you spend there, you could go to Spain or the south of France.

I used to go every summer for years but Ptown is such a racket now.

It’s true bears are getting fatter. They have a bear night at my local and I would say that half are indeed morbidly obese, and a couple of the size that you see on TV documentaries that require hoists to get them out of bed. As their weight has gone up, their infantalism seems to have increased. They’re like 500 lb eight year old schoolgirls.

Well unless you have booked accommodation already, you’re out of luck. In case you hadn’t noticed, Americans are desperate to travel and pay whatever it costs.

I think it’s actually gotten less bearish. The guys are more muscle queens and cubs with beards. The truly fat ratio isn’t that high.

Are the rainbow flags in that poster up to date? Looks like they're missing some colours. Cancel this event!

They’re under fire for not allowing trans bears. Now they are. Have a great time seeing vaginas.

Things to avoid.

Some of the all-around hottest guys I've known have fit the bear/cub type. But the group itself is one of the bitchiest, and most exclusionary I've seen (within the GLBTQIA community, and elsewhere). I suspect it comes as a result of insecurity on their part, and needing to feel superior to SOMEONE. Because they'll always be physically "inferior" to the muscle queens/gym rats. But aren't we all? Of course, I also say this as someone who makes the distinction between bears and chubs. So, there's that.

The Bear scene, especially the kink bear scene is one of the nastiest... and often the most infectious cliques in all of gaydom.

Wasn't last year's Bear Party one of the first indications that covid vaccines weren't failsafes against infection? Who knows what insights we'll get into which diseases this time. We owe the bears thanks for willingly exposing themselves to the petri dish of Provincetown in July because it advances our medical knowledge.

by Anonymousreply 24June 22, 2022 11:22 PM

Did no one tell the bears that PrEP doesn't protect against Covid?

A friend who was a waiter there told me that the restaurant owners LIVE for Bear Week because they EAT!

Bear Week was responsible for the covid carnage in Ptown last year!

by Anonymousreply 27June 23, 2022 12:02 AM

The Times story on it said the Covid Carnage started with the White Party the week before.

Sexually, I love bears but not the obese ones.

Well, R29, If you aren't a bear they hate you.

R21-I'm not into bears but unknowingly ended up going to Provincetown for bear week a couple of times in 2010 and again in 2012. Very few bears are hairy. They call themselves hairy if they have facial hair- which does not count as being hairy , but what many of them were was obese. I went to t dance at Boatslip and there were a number of guys who were muscle bears. They were not obese . They were burly or big boned and had sizeable builds- those guys would be considered HOT by ( not everyone) but plenty of mainstream gays would find those types of guys hot.

If they call themselves bears, then they're probably still cunts.

Why do the Drag Hags always have to horn in on specific events. So sick of ugly men troweling on makeup and lip liner and invading all gay events. Sick of drag. Stay home and paint your toe nails.

The cartoon's odd depictions of treasure trails and chest hair are nasty.

I like the musclebears, the fit-fat bears, and the otters. Especially the slutty ones who have a kink or two.

I just avoid "gay events" to spare myself any potential outrage R33.

R27 the bear week hadn’t even started when the outbreak started. It was actually caused by the fourth of july whores. And their Hollywood sponsors.

I had a relationship with a bear. He complained all the time that I wasn’t hairy enough, wouldn’t grow a beard, wouldn’t agree to an open relationship, etc. All his friends were carbon copies of each other, and were really hostile towards me. In the end I left him. He was too entrenched in the lifestyle to see me as a worthwhile person.

My sexual ideal is a very hairy generally fit big bear. In my life, I’ll only had sex (in my bed vs a quicky somewhere) with one such guy.

It was amazing because I was so turned on.

Sadly, the competition for hairy guys is rather fierce and there aren’t a lot of them
