When you are growing up in the years that will somewhat shape the kind of person you will be, something that will form no matter how you look at it is the type of person you are attracted to. Straight, gay, or in between, a lot of what we see that influences us into determining who we like happens to be on the big screen or the television at home. So many of us have an attraction to bears and bear types, yet there had to be a starting off point that got us to where we are today, whether it is from a dating or sexual viewpoint. I recently polled a ton of my bear & bear loving friends with the simple question- “Who was the first bear-type of guy that did it for you on television and/or the movies?” The colorful responses I got were quite in depth and interesting, as the tastes varies depending on body hair, age, charisma, race, and so much more.
Here is a good gallery of who they were inspired by. Who was your first?
“Stone Cold” Steve Austin
Guy Williams as Zorro. Definitely.

There are some of these that I would not consider bears.They might have been at some point, but not in their highlighted years. There are also a few that should be on the list. My first crush actually is, and is considered a bear, and that is John Goodman. I remember him from Rosanne.
