Man love

What's your honest opinion on man love?

Would you think nothing of it if you saw heterosexual males expressing their man love, like girls generally behave with their friends? You know, full frontal hugging, cheek to cheek greetings/farewells, the lot.

I know where I live and many other countries, male bonding involves next to no physical contact aside from friendly punches, shoulder charges, "bo's" and strong fast handshakes. There are a few European countries where things have developed alot faster, and heterosexual males are alot more touchy feely with one another.

Maybe your opinion on this differs with your gender or sexuality or country you were brought up in. For the males here, how do you behave around your friends? Thoughts?


So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Re: Man love

It seems the Italians and Spanish are more open with their man love than those Europeans of more northerly latitudes.

Here in USA, it is mostly high 5's, low 5's, medium 5's, and of course the high 5's into bro hug move.

Re: Man love

First they call it man love. Next, they're anally fucking each other in the bedrooms of their girlfriends.

Re: Man love

kisses in the cheek from other men make me feel uncomfortable.

here in chile it's normal behaviour to greet chicks with a kiss in the cheek though

Personally speaking, bro 5's into bro hugs and bro fists are as far as I go with my male friends. Never even think to go in for a hug or anything. Same with every guy here actually.

Strangely though, when we're doing something competitive like a physical sport such as Football, we never think twice about embracing, forehead kissing, butt squeezing etc.. Of course if this wasn't an internet forum, I'll admit I wouldn't be comfortable talking about it, it's just something that happens but is never discussed. Must depend on what the society you're brought up into "accepts" as heterosexual behaviour, and for some reason wanting to adhere by it.

I just find the "uncomfortable" factor strange.. things will more than likely develop overtime to reflect how it is in other more open countries like Italy. It's just a matter of time methinks.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Re: Man love

I agree. Straight men slap each other on the ass and talk about their man crushes, yet act like they've seen an alien at the most simple sign of affection between two guys. It's all due to sexual frustration.
