    I've heard of bears, otters, cubs, but wolves? What gay subspecies is this? A guy describing what he's looking for as a "Guy-next-door looking for Tops & Wolves".

    Someone in Gayland enlighten me, please.

    Wolf AKA Big Bad Wolf - lurks in bushes and eats grandmothers... and children enroute to see their grandmothers.

    Probably not one you want to bring home to the family.

    cold saidWolf - A term for a Muscle Bear who is a rugged outdoorsy or biker type.
    (Wikipedia)

    Wolf - An aggressive male homosexual.
    (Online Dictionary of Playground Slang)

    Wolf - A lean, masculine gay man who is attracted to bears and involved in the bear scene.
    (Wordlingo)


    Sounds like my type of guy. Never heard the expression before. Do they have wolf websites?

    cold gives us the contemporary gay definition for a Wolf. But the term goes back to the 1920s in the US, most popular in the 30s and 40s, when it originally meant a straight man who was aggressive toward women.

    Women were warned to watch out for Wolves, and the term "Wolf Whistle" meant the distinctive double whistle a man would make as a good-looking woman walked by. I even remember cars that had Wolf Whistle horns retrofitted to make that sound.

    You may also remember some 30s & 40s cartoons (from TV broadcasts, of course) where Wolf characters are featured, especially in Warner Brothers Looney Toons. They're usually portrayed as an actual wolf walking on 2 feet, but dressed very slick, sometimes in a period Zoot Suit with a long pocket watch chain and wide-brimmed hat, chasing females. Several are featured in Bug Bunny cartoons.

    I'm not sure, but I consider myself to be more of a wolf then a bear. I attribute it to being hairy and having BLUE eyes. Not sure if the eyes are the key? I like fit bears too and am attracted to hairy men. I'm not an authority on it though!

    All the guys that I know that consider themselves a wolf would fit the wikipedia definition. Looks have a lot to do with it, and although they like the secondary characteristics of a bear, they don't seem to go for the unhealthy heavy or obese types.

    The wolf might be a bit of a loner since they don't seem to fully embrace the bear image and community. I know some wolf types would say I resemble more of a fox because of the red hair.

    It's a cool image but kinda way off in terms of a usual bear's shape. Most bears I know or have met are much heavier than just average weight. Also, all the bears that have white or grey hair are most often called polar, regardless how grey or small.

    Here's how Looney Toons director Tex Avery saw a Wolf at a 1940s nightclub, including the Wolf Whistle:

    Agreed. I'm pretty sure the image was more meant to be funny than anything else.

    A "Wolf" can also be a type of persona that a person takes on during "Puppy Play" (a form of safe, sane, consensual SM animal roleplay). This persona is quite literally akin to an adult feral canid, as opposed to a domesticated version.
