Meet Woofy Wesley from L.A.

Hi Wesley!

11667406_922265831149652_7942587533701937798_n
What’s your idea of a perfect date?
“Hmm this for some reason seems to be the hardest question to answer. This can go in so many directions. Obviously a perfect date would entail laughter, tons of flirting, furry kisses, butterflies and “excitement”.
I’m a big fan of dinner with some bad ass ambiance and a movie. Preferably in one of the theaters with the small couch/love seats so there’s groping and cuddle action.
I also can take it outdoors and do say, a hike and maybe a picnic in a secluded spot on a hill in the grass under a tree to watch the sunset.
Or there’s the hot hangout on the couch for as long as you both can resist, maybe 20-30 mins into a movie and then just go at it!”

How would you describe your personal interior design style?
“Rustic design, earthy contemporary and a little pop never hurt.”

What kind of music do you listen to?
“I pride myself in how all over the board I am with my music preferences. I pretty much like stuff from almost every genre of music. Some of my very favorites are.. The Grateful Dead, Lady Gaga, Bob Marley, Ella Fitzgerald, Notorious BIG and Phish.”

Fitness Routine:
“I workout about 6 days a week and do about 30 mins of cardio a day, preferably the treadmill on full incline at a nice speed. I lift weights on all gym days and try to switch up my routine every few weeks to keep it interesting and to constantly shock and stimulate my muscles.

Meet Bear Rap Artist Big Dipper

Hey Big Dipper!
We’re looking forward to working with you in a couple of weeks at Lazy Bear! You’ll be the musical entertainment during “Project Bearway” which we’re hosting.

11011536_927387000637535_8314975439953088082_o
Were you a performer as a kid?
“Ha-ha yes! Community children’s theatre.”

When did you begin entertaining professionally?
“About 5 years ago.”

How did it all start?
“I was performing in a dance trio at art parties and queer nightlife in Chicago and thru that scene was connected to people making music. I met Dan Foley who I collaborated with on all my first tracks. Both the music and the videos just sort of happened on a whim, it all developed pretty organically.”

What’s next for your career?
“I want to continue doing bigger and better things. More music, more videos, more traveling and performing and entertaining people. I just released an EP on iTunes called EXTRA GOOD and a new video for my song VIBIN. So I’m traveling around and promoting those projects this summer. Hopefully I’ll have a mixtape with new music coming out before 2016 :)”

Of course, we need to ask you our “Beefcake of the Week” questions for our readers!

What’s your idea of a perfect date?
“I like excitement and fun! And I don’t want to be the one to make the plan. In my work life I’m constantly making decisions and being in charge, so I want to be taken out on the date, told what to do. A perfect date definitely includes good food, lots of conversation, and an exciting activity, like a show or concert or theme park or bike ride or something.

I also like to fuck first then hang out after :)”

 

11731675_927382740637961_3675614232542532387_o


How would you describe your personal interior design style?
“Chaotic lol. I haven’t really lived in my own space since I started performing and traveling so I’m always bouncing around or living on someone else’s terms. I’m attracted to color and organized clutter. I like clean and sleek, sure, but my reality is a mess…I love to keep things from my life and travels around me and paste notes and pictures on the walls. My life is about working and hustling and juggling 100 things at once; so my space often reflects that. I like lots on the walls, pictures and art, and I like to interact with the space I’m in, not just sit within its walls.”

What kind of music do you listen to?
“Rap, Pop, Hip Hop, R&B, Club.”

Location: Brooklyn
Height: 5’10”
Hair: “Brown on my head, Red in my beard, Black all over my body.”
Eyes: Brown
Sign: Aries

 

11707934_927386860637549_1104731949544739152_o


Fitness Routine:
“I have no routine; I’m incredibly skilled at being lazy and sitting on the couch working on my laptop. I like to do pushups and some good old fashioned sit ups from time to time. I lift weights when I go to the gym, but mostly just like to work up a sweat because that’s what always makes me feel the best. When I perform my live show, it’s quite the workout, and the ideal format to work up a sweat.”

Occupation: “Entertainer / Rapper / Director / Artist.”
Hobbies: “Biking, Watching Music Videos, Dancing, cutting my own hair.”

Guilty Pleasure Snack:

“Chocolate Chip Cookies dipped in peanut butter. (Guilty Pleasure Netflix show to go with the Snack: Gilmore Girls….I’m flying thru the seasons).”

TV Faves:
“Inside Amy Schumer, Grace and Frankie, and I’m obsessed with SENSE 8 on Netflix right now.”

Last Good Movie You Saw:
“I’ve seen a lot of mediocre of bad movies recently…..the last movie that I actually watched that I thought was great was ‘Death Becomes Her’…..but that’s old….in the theatre?….maybe not since ‘Imitation Game.’ Oh and ‘Tootsie,’ I just watched Tootsie on a plane; that movie is great!”

Currently Reading:
“I keep trying to read ‘The Tipping Point’ but it was written before social media and it’s all about trends in culture, marketing, and exposure, so it seems weird that is predates the internet…”

Turn Ons:
“Confidence, a nice smile, sense of humor, thick body, muscles or just heft, beards, likes to dance, uniqueness….I’m attracted to tall, short, muscle, chubby, most types, but there has to be something unique and special about them…..not those clone gays that act and think like everyone else.”

“Or the short answer: big dicked bottoms.”

 


11224849_927387073970861_739148357706688186_o


Turn Offs:
“Bad Breath! Shadiness, liars, people who think money and status are the only things that matter, someone unwilling to try something new, no sense of humor.”

Personal Philosophy:
“I don’t think I really have one scripted and ready to go, but it’s all about love and happiness and respect and kindness. Love yourself and be kind to the people around you. Work hard for what you want, but be aware of your place and privilege in the world, and help those in need, and hear those who need to speak, and see those who need visibility. Have fun, eat good food, have lots of good sex and live that thick life.”

Meet Woofy CubCake Nik from Munich

Hi Nik!

What’s your idea of a perfect date?

“Intimate dining, taking a romantic walk together, occasionally grabbing his hand (and not letting go!), eventually dropping him home with a kiss. Yes, I may be young but I’m old school: no sex on the first date!”

How would you describe your personal interior design style?

“A good blend of industrial design and modernism.”

11403379_10153300887024536_7580693521577857767_n

What kind of music do you listen to?

“Anything from a cheesy pop ballade (that I can even more cheesily sing and hum along to!), house music, classic rock and even classical music. Deep and meaningful lyrics get me all the time!”

Location: Munich, Germany

Height: 5`8 Hair: brown

Eyes: changeable from brown to green

Sign: Libra

10421262_10153300887044536_1050885732102769006_n

Fitness Routine: “Actually at bulking. Gaining mass before I will have to cut it down. I work out five to six times a week. Go heavy with the weight and focuse on 8-10 reputations. Once a week I play soccer.”

Occupation: “Self employed Personal Trainer business “NiksShapeUp”

Hobbies: “I love playing soccer, working out at the gym, going to the movies. I’m always up for a fun and relaxed time with close friends which might include getting buzzed at the bars. Even Personal Trainers have a life, you know! LOL”

Guilty Pleasure Snack: “Peanut butter jelly sandwiches.”

TV Faves: “Big Bang Theory, Game of Thrones.”

11257974_10153300886994536_3985268927014016182_n

Last good movie you saw: “With Child” 2014, A widowed construction worker must balance rebuilding his life and being a single dad to his infant daughter all the while being spun around by the romantic advances of his eccentric new employer. Totally engaging and authentic film!”

Currently Reading: “Redirect, by Timothy Wilson, 2011 If you want to know how to make permanent and lasting change in your behavior, or the behavior of someone you know, then this is the book to read. It tells you what does and doesn’t work based on research.”

Turn Ons: “A handsome interesting bearded face always gets my attention first – I’m a sucker for a great smile. Then I like big furry guys, my size and bigger. Age really doesn’t matter here. You’ve got to be a sane, loyal and very genuine guy. Someone who will settle for love, who’s able to commit and say “FUCK, YES!” to me – that’s my biggest turn on!”

Turn Offs: “I don’t need anyone constantly counting their calories, obsessing with keeping their sixpack in shape. I want my man to be able to enjoy a good beer and a pizza, too. Oh, and if you’re seeking validation from other guys while you’re dating me, we’re definitely not a match. Also drugs is a big no-no for me.”

Personal Philosophy : “This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soulmate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” ― I had to quote Marilyn Monroe, because its just so true!!!
