The Gay Animal Kingdom: Defining Otters, Bears And Twinks (Oh My!)

We’re sure you’ve heard about Otters and Bears and the not-so-elusive Twink, but we’re gonna bet you’re as new to the world of Raccoons and Swallows (!) as we are.

Luckily, YouTube channel Adventures in Gay has got you covered with an introduction to the Gay Animal Kingdom complete with animation, sound effects, and writing that’s a bit more clever than the average gay video competing in the Viral Olympics.

The cute and vaguely Screech-ian host is witty and appealing, and with only a 3:30 investment we’ve now got a whole host of different terminology to learn and drunkenly introduce other gays to at parties!

And, yes, we’ve got a friend who is a total Norton.

    Twink, otter, bear…

    You can just call me human.

    I’ve had sex with EVERY category listed above, also including black, white, yellow guys, and mixtures of all these colors. I am not promiscuous and adventurous as I once was anymore, but nowadays I have a marked preference for twinks and hunks. No more than 35 yo. Ideally between 19-30 yo.

    Um…love me some monocle.

    All bears should shave/just trim/wax. Too much hair makes you look like a beast!

    @Billy Budd: Who in the bloody fuck gives 2 shits what you think about anything really? You probably refer to yourself as “VGL” in your profiles too, huh? I wouldn’t be surprised one bit.
    Honestly, the ugliest and worst thing in the gay world is a superficial queer who thinks he knows what every other queer should like or dislike and that unless one conforms to your ideal, they’re lesser-than.
    Not everyone is a circuit twink, and not all of us prefer that, Budd.

    I personally don’t believe there is such a thing as too much body hair. My bear of a boyfriend has as much hair on his back and butt as he does on the front of his body and I love every last follicle. IMO, second only to his brain, the sexiest & most masculine aspect of a man is his body hair.

    To each his own.

    You people do realize this is a joke right?

  • stranded

    the guy is adorable with his wear’s waldo hair.

  • Fang

    I want to be with an octopus!!

  • Tony G

    I guess I would be a Garfield, then.

    Billy Budd (who comments on every article here) is a troll trying to make gays look bad.

    He’s adopting what he think is a ‘stereotypical’ gay man personality and deliberately saying such things as – he prefers young and twinks.

    Just a few weeks earlier he was going on and on about only liking hairy men.

    He wants to rile up people like @Pitou (who had to give the oh so boring lecture on hair and masculinity – who knows it may be Billy Budd’s another avatar! O_O)

    @carey579: Send me an email: billybuddbay @ hot mail dot com. I can explain to you that I am NOT a troll and that I have no agenda like you said. You are imagining things. I am being jtotally honest here.

  • Billy Budd

    I ALWAYS said that I liked men to trim.u Read my preivous posts. I do like hair, but I do not like beasts.
