    So you all probably know about that Gay Clique Census, so I won't bore with that, but what exactly is a pup? I understand Bear, and stuff like that, but a pup? I don't know what that is getting at...

    A pup is a gay adolescent or young man, with many of the attributes we associate with puppy dogs: cute, inexperienced, naive, bright-eyed, eager, energetic, huggable. Similar to a twink, but with the possibility of a brain, not as edgy or trendy, and minus the sense that they're always one step from being totally wasted. A pup is also very like a cub, but isn't interested in bear culture, not a bear apprentice.

    More in line with the topic:

    Pups, per the gay clique test site, are the bear version of twinks. Young, thin/lean, appropriately hairy, from 18 ~ 26... after which they "evolve" into otters (not necessarily leather/BDSM trending) or wolves (more likely leather/BDSM trending).

    Other Bear sub types include cubs (average shape to chubby young hairy guys under 30), and Muscle Bears (beefier, muscly hair guys with some body fat, but more notable for their musculature, over 30) and their younger kin, Muscle Cubs.

    Polar Bears are elder and final form of bear evolution irrespective of musculature; wolves/otters may evolve into Silver Wolves, or more commonly, "Daddies".

    Bulls are related, but not necessarily part of the bear spectrum - they are the super-massive bodybuilder types exceeding 135kg/300lbs. May or may not be hairy, although the gay clique site lists extreme hairiness as a criteria.

    I believe that this was an irrelevant factor introduced by the site author, who is a muscle bear and may be slightly biased in developing his definition.

    Suddenly I feel the urge to change my screen name. Why must gay men corrupt every animal name in the dictionary? icon_neutral.gif

    In the BDSM arena, a "pup" is a young sub.

    this kind?

    BTW, this apparently timid & frightened pup makes me want to scoop him up, and hug him, and reassure him, and let him roughhouse with me, so he knows he has nothing to fear.

    and body hair.

    If I were to guess, the difference would be more muscular than an otter, less heft than a bear.
