If you’re the kind of guy who likes nothing better than to listen to the growly tones of a big ol’ Bear, then our gay Bear chat services are for you.

We’re not talking Pandas

But let’s just be sure what we’re talking about; there are plenty of terms bandied around in the gay community and, if you’re unfamiliar with them, they can be a bit confusing. The Bears we’re talking about aren’t the sort you’ll find in the zoo. Bears are big, hairy guys, the large and in charge kind. If you like your guys smooth and soft, then walk away now – there’s no way you’d ever get a Bear to part with an inch of his pelt; these guys are proud of their fur and frequently flaunt it. We’re talking guys like the Hairy Bikers on TV; they’re unlikely to bother with details like deodorant, will be a little older and can be some of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. Bump into a Bear and you’ll know all about it – they might not be rippling hunks, but they’re 100% man, from top to toe.

Now we’ve got that out of the way, you can decide whether you’re interested in gay Bear chat. At, we’ve got literally hundreds of Bears online, just waiting to share a few growls with you. You might be wondering just how you’ll know whether the guy you’re enjoying gay Bear chat with is actually a genuine Ursa Major. The answer lies in our Power Search tool.

Time to go hunting Bear!

When you register with, the first thing we’ll do is give you a free, online profile. All you’ll need to do is to fill in a few words, introducing yourself to the rest if our community and, if you like, you can upload a photo. By browsing the profiles of our other members, you’ll be able to learn a bit about them and then see from their photos whether their bodily follicle-count is what you were hoping for. However, we’ve added an extra facility to help ensure you get great gay Bear chat with the Bears you want, which is where the Power Search Tool comes in.

Using the Powers Search tool, you can request that only guys who fit your criteria contact you. It’s a bit like a filter; you simply tell the Power Search what you want and it matches your requirements with those shown by the rest of our member; no more trawling through personal ads or wasting time on irrelevant profiles – the Power Search tool racks up a load of guys who all fit your needs. So, if you’re interested in gay Bear chat, you simply let the Power Search know and it’ll look for Bears on your behalf. The Power Search tool is there to be used and you can be as particular or as casual as you like with it; there are a huge number of factors you can include to make your search specific, such as where a guy’s from, their age and their likes and dislikes. Hunting Bear has never been so easy!

The Bear Necessities has been the UK’s largest provider of gay chat services for the last 16 years. Part of the reason to our success is that we listen very carefully to our callers’ feedback and are flexible enough that we can adapt to their needs. As the Internet became more sophisticated and our chat services became more in demand, we quickly identified the need to offer our callers online privacy and protection. As a result, when you get your free profile, you’ll find that it comes with customisable security settings, allowing you to make your online presence as visible or as invisible as you like or even to block callers you feel you don’t want any contact with. Your discretion and protection are a valuable part of enjoying gay Bear chat with us and we are constantly upgrading all our services to you.

Using our gay Bear chat services, you can be as open or as anonymous as you like. Many of our first-time callers like the sense of liberation that comes with a degree of anonymity, as they feel it takes the pressure off. However, as time goes by, the majority reveal more about themselves. The fact that you are able to filter your searches and browse other callers’ profiles means that you don’t have to worry too hard about what to say; you’ve already established some common ground and, although their individual reasons may vary, everyone has one thing in common: they’re all looking to enjoy chatting with other gay guys from the comfort of their own homes.

Bear talk

The content of your conversation is limited only by who you’re talking to; you can be as naughty or as nice as you like, as long as it’s OK with the other caller. You might find that your gay Bear chat takes an adult turn with some Bears or, with others, you might just find you’re swapping life-stories, as you listen to his throaty tones. And it doesn’t have to stop there; some users use our gay Bear chat lines as a springboard to finding lasting relationships, while others are there purely for a bit of flirty fun. Whatever you want out of your gay Bear chat, you can be sure that there are other callers out there looking for exactly the same thing.

Using our gay Bear chat services, you don’t have to worry about whether you’re appearance is up to scratch that night or whether your ex is going to make an unwanted appearance at your favourite bar; all you have to do is log in, get connected and get chatting. If you’re not sure whether our gay Bear chat services are for you, we can offer you 15 minutes free talk time to help you make your decision. Simply register with us, get connected and you’ll be enjoying gay Bear chat in minutes – with no obligation to join.

Bears are out there – all you need to do is connect with them. Call us today.
