    Male strip shows usually offer up a more waxed, oiled look, but male-for-male burlesqe party Adonis Lounge gives occasional shout-outs to fur lovers.

    Gay? Hipster? Both? Don't get caught up in L-train ambiguity; head to DJ Damian's super-friendly Tuesday-night shindig at the East Village dive Nowhere for cute, fuzz-faced dudes.

    Bob Mould and Richard Morel's roving Blowoff party attracts a fun mix of gays, hipsters, serious dance music fans and, of course, bears—many of whom are compelled to de-shirt as the night goes on.

    DJs Rich King and Gustavo (pictured, from left) helped redefine bear culture with their popular SNAXX party, which now happens all too rarely. These days, you'll catch Rich spinning in the Monster's basement at the Sunday Situation.

    Chelsea's G Lounge isn't usually a stomping ground for big and hairy guys, but Wednesday's DILF (you know what that stands for…) is welcoming of manly men—even the go-go boys have meat on their bones (and hair on their meat).

    In the 1990s, it was rare to catch at glimpse of chest hair at John Blair's legendary Roxy Saturdays. As this pic shot at the opening night of Blair's newest party at XL proves, things have clearly changed.

    Hell's Kitchen has definitely taken Chelsea's place as pretty-boy central with all of its sleek lounges and sexy cocktail bars, but country-themed newcomer Flaming Saddles proudly welcomes all types (and has them dancing on the bar).

    Not too long ago, a guy had to be freshly waxed and have easily viewed abdominal muscles to even consider taking his top off at a mainstream gay dance party. But as evidenced by these sexy men we caught at last year's Bondi Beach bash, the megaclubs seem to be welcoming other body types these days. Hooray!

    You'll always find a friedly pan-queer crowd at this Williamsburg dive, where a burlesque performer showed us that a bearish aesthetic isn't confined to one end of the gender spectrum.
