Event Details

Bear Hug

Pawed NYC’s own version of a cuddle event for the extended bear community. All who identify as "male" and all ages, body types, and backgrounds are welcome with warm open arms!

Enjoy a friendly evening of warm cuddles, snuggles, and bear hugs! 


I've never been to a cuddle event. What should I expect?

Picture a pile of puppies lying around, snuggling into each other.  That's essentially what our event is like.  After a few simple warmup activities, we will all lay in one big mass of bodies soaking in the warmth, support, and love from the group.

The evening will be broken into three 15 minutes cuddle sessions, to allow you to move around to new spaces and to take quick bathroom breaks in between.

Please note: Bear Hug is somewhat different than some cuddle events which have specific rules involving requesting permission prior to touch.  Bear Hug is for men who are comfortable with body contact with other men and exploring male intimacy without the pressures of sex.

What should I bring to the event?

Simply bring something comfortable to change into: shorts and a t-shit, sweatpants, or PJs. 

Also feel free to bring a blanket, pillor, or stuffed animal if you'd like!

What are the benefits of a cuddle event?

See a testimonial from one of our group member highlighted below to hear firsthand! 

Cuddle events like these provide you all the same benefit you get from all loving human touch. Cuddling releases oxytocin, which is also known as the feel-good hormone.

It can help to reduce blood pressure, which in turn not olnly reduces the risk of heart disease, but it can also help to reduce stress and anxiety.

Regardless of health benefits, get ready to feel warm, fuzzy, and safe.

Is this event sexual?

No, this is not meant to be an overly sexual event. It is clothing on and groping is not allow.

There may be sexual energy that arises during the night which is natural. You will not be shamed for getting excited or aroused, we just ask you do not act on it during the event.

Here's how a fellow Pawed member explained his experience last time:

"The Bear Cuddle was a great to connect with other gay men in a non-sexual loving environment. The atmosphere and the tone was friendly and welcoming. It was nice to explore connecting the body and spirit in a safe and caring way. They are an amazing group of men whom I enjoyed sharing a wonderful, and exceptional time. It was great to meet and connect with everyone. And as it turns out, cuddling was exactly what I needed."
