|Walter's Uploads and the Top 20 Uploaders - Saturday March 11th 2017 (News ID: 1733)||[ Back to top ]|
WalterG (id 2846) just added a handful of new BG, Thunder's and MDW bearhugs in the Uploads section. The ones from Thunder's are usually the highest rated on the site, followed by stuff from BG, but MDW is starting to make their way into their territories. If you check MDW's site, it's funny to see the subtle similarities they have with BG's website. If a formula works well, why not reuse it?
Here's one shot from each of the company he posted:
WalterG is currently the #1 Top Uploader of the site with more than 6,000 images contributed over the seven years he has been with us. He actually travels often. So, if he ever is in your area, you can show him your appreciation of his work and time for us by giving him a few bearhugs.
Speaking of Top Uploaders, here is the current Top 20:
We currently have 29,561 bearhugs on the site and these Top 20 Uploaders account for 21,365 bearhugs, which represents 72% of the material that was contributed to the Uploads section.... pretty impressive! A million thanks to all these guys for helping us and adding to the success of the cataloging of bearhugs.

|Hidden Uploads - Wednesday March 1st 2017 (News ID: 1731)||[ Back to top ]|
If you haven't noticed already, some bearhugs from the Uploads Section do not show up if you do not login.
Why is this so?
Simple. Some companies (I won't mention which ones exactly) don't want their wrestlers to show up in Google Searches. By having these uploads private, they won't show up in Google.
So yeah, if you log in, you should be able to see more of them. Don't get excited though... you'll just see slightly more.
Most companies know the value of free publicity for their products, so the majority of them allow people to post them everywhere as long as their watermark is visible.

|SamLoveBearHugs vs Hard4You - Saturday December 31st 2016 (News ID: 1726)||[ Back to top ]|
SamLovesBearhugs (id 1238) has his own way to wish us a Happy New Year: he posted on the site about a hundred bearhug pictures he made with Hard4You (id 1922).
You can take a look at his new collection by clicking here. In my opinion, some of the shots are pretty impressive. The size of Hard4You probably implies that his bearhugs are quite powerful.
I do realize that not all the images that were posted are bearhugs, but since Sam kindly shared his personal photography from his own matches with us, I've decided to make an exception. On top of that, he posted the full scale originals, which are larger than what your desktop wallpaper can hold.
Please guys, don't be tough on your rating. If you think you can do better than this, then by all means, please share with us your own bearhugs.

|60 uploads - Wednesday August 10th 2016 (News ID: 1714)||[ Back to top ]|
About 60 uploads have been added. You can always use the Uploads by Date page to find out which days you may have missed. You'll notice from it that many other days have spike of bearhug submissions.
This recent batch contains a mix of pro indies, some Thunder's and a bunch of Morgan Cruise bearhugs.
Yeah, I know.. Morgan Cruise has been renamed to Dominants Dungeon lately... I'll gradually do the replacement in the weeks to come. It doesn't really matter in the end since those who visit Morgan Cruise are automatically redirected do their new website. The same thing applies to the Cameron Wrestler website that now converges towards the Wrestler 4 Hire website.
It really annoys me when companies change the website's format or the company name because it just breaks so many links.
Is it just me or I really find it hard to use the new replacement format of Wrestler 4 Hire? You are forced to log in to view many of their products or access many parts of their website, it's hard to find anything and you can't tell which new videos have been added. The search feature doesn't always work either. Each time I surf on it, I just end up closing my browser out of frustration. It's probably just me being difficult.
I still hope that they will revamp the system again to make it friendlier.

|New uploads... and some stats - Sunday June 19th 2016 (News ID: 1707)||[ Back to top ]|
A handful of new uploads have been submitted recently.
Then I went to check the stats page by company today just for fun. It now shows that 1 out of every approximately ~4 bearhugs comes from BG. This figure used to be 1 out of 3. Mind you, 1 out of 4 is still huge.
Thunder's Arena is in a far second place with about 1 out of every 7 pictures being a bearhug from this company.
When ranked by type of bearhugs, the lifted frontal bearhugs are still being the most popular bearhugs with 30% of all bearhugs on the site. This is followed by regular frontal bearhugs (those with the opponent's feet still on the ground) at 23% and reverse bearhugs at 13%. Lifted reverse bearhugs are far behind at 6%.
The bearhug counter is currently registering more than 27,000 bearhugs...
So why does the identification numbers show a value around 34,000 when there are only 27,000 bearhugs? Well.. it's pretty simple: it means that about 7,000 bearhugs have been eradicated because they were either duplicates, non-bearhugs or requests from individuals for removals (for privacy or copyright concerns).

|Primal Chaos' bearhugs - Sunday May 15th 2016 (News ID: 1701)||[ Back to top ]|
Primal Chaos (id 1000) added a couple of bearhugs that were taken with a bodybuilder known as Big Max (from Big Max Muscle). As with most wrestling products, a ring name is given and Primal Chaos goes under the undercover name of "Grant".
This one above is recorded under Upload ID 33687. You can take a look at the other bearhugs in this set by checking out the Max vs Grant bearhug set, and please be generous with your ratings. It's not everyday we get great photos like these. Good ratings means that Primal Chaos might share more of these with us in the future.

|A handful of new submissions - Saturday March 5th 2016 (News ID: 1690)||[ Back to top ]|
A fisftul full of bearhugs have been added by various contributors. Check out the Uploads Section for the latest bearhugs.
A million thanks goes to MisterWoodToYou (id 1452), Brunomariner (id 547), BearhugManila (id 3433), Magnus Orestes (id 640) and WalterG (id 2846) for their continuous and relentless work into finding and submitting these new bearhugs.
This site is definitely not the same without you guys. So many bearhugs are crawling everywhere nowadays that I can't find the time to uncover them anymore. Your work saves me a lot of trouble. Again, thank you!
|Team up with your peers! - Sunday October 25th 2015 (News ID: 1675)||[ Back to top ]|
As it stands right now, there is about 54 requests for various different images to be uploaded as videos. With this many bearhugs to choose from, it is only normal that each and every person will most likely pick a different bearhug.
You can view the list of all video requests here. You should probably check out what other people have been choosing and team up with them in selecting the same bearhug. I always try to go by the picture that has the highest amount of requests first, so if you'd like to sacrifice your request for another one which already have a vote or two, then the chances of that video been made available will increase. By teaming up, you will be helping yourself and others to request better and faster.
You can see the total amount of requests for the same bearhug by looking at the last column of the request page. What's important here is not the Upload ID, but the names of the bearhugger and the victim. If both of these names match for two or more different requests, then the total request count for that set will increase.
As a reminder, to request a picture to be made available as a video, visit the picture (Upload ID) and then click on the link that says: [ Request this bearhug to be made available as a video clip ]
By the way, not all images are available as videos and others are protected in one way or another, so I might go through the request list and remove those that I can't upload their videos. Also, keep in mind also that you can only make a single video request. If you happen to make another request, your first request will be squashed (disappear).

|More Zitronenquark - Friday September 11th 2015 (News ID: 1671)||[ Back to top ]|
I still don't think this guy gets enough exposure, since he's been eclipsed by the hundreds of muscle worship videos out there... but I really love this guy. Very charismatic, tall, built, handsome and smiles a lot. I find that a lot of bodybuilders just want to keep a serious face, but Zitronenquark is really something else.
Anyway, he released a new video a little while ago. Now I obviously wouldn't talk about it if he had not included any bearhugs... so yes, he included a reverse and an inverted bearhug. You can find a couple of screenshots by clicking here.
Also, if you watch his videos, you'll see that he really knows how to give out nice, solid and successive spams in his bear hugs! That's how you apply REAL bearhugs!
By the way, all Zitronenquark images have a +300 bearhug points bonus when you vote on them.

|Request for a video clip - Thursday August 20th 2015 (News ID: 1666)||[ Back to top ]|
As you may have noticed, each bearhug upload now has a video request link.
It's sort of a survey. Clicking on it will add one request count towards the image and this is limited to one request per user. If you happen to make a request on a different image, then your previous request will disappear and will be replaced with the new one.
In the end, I will concentrate my efforts towards the image set with the highest amount of requests and do whatever possible to find a video clip for it. Of course, not all images have clips available, others may already be available elsewhere (YouTube anyone?) and several will be blocked due to legal reasons. Don't give up though, keep trying by finding an image that you like and put your request on it.
|A handful of new uploads - Sunday May 17th 2015 (News ID: 1650)||[ Back to top ]|
Oops.. 15 days without an update. Meh.. who's counting? (Besides me?)
WalterG (id 2846), Magnus Orestes (id 640), Rickrudefan (id 10074), MisterWoodtoyou (id 1452) and Invertedbearhuglover (id 5888) all submitted a handful of new bearhugs lately.
You can check them out by visiting the Bearhug Uploads.
I was a bit surprised to see this one below from Thunder's. Usually, they stick with duals between the big beefy muscle guys, but this one is a big big guy against a pretty slim guy that does not stand a chance. It's nice to see a very uneven match once in a while...
What do you think? Cast your vote on Upload ID 29989 for +1,500 bearhug points.
|Gatorhugs Top 200 ranking - Friday February 20th 2015 (News ID: 1638)||[ Back to top ]|
In case you haven't noticed, Gatorhugs now have their Top 200 rankings accessible from the Uploads Panel. Gatorhug is simply a term someone came up with to associate bearhugs performed in water.
You can view these Gatorhugs by Best uploads or by Newest uploads.
Curious what's the #1 Gatorhug, the cream of the crop, la crème de la crème? Well it's apparently this one where Chaos bearhugs Kyle.
It's a good one, but that wouldn't be my first pick, but what do I know? 28 of you guys voted and decided to make it so. You can still change the fate of this bearhug by voting on Upload ID 7014.
Yea I know.. since there are currently less than 200 gatorhugs, every one of them gets a position in the ranking.

|Least voted uploads - Saturday December 27th 2014 (News ID: 1628)||[ Back to top ]|
There is now 2 extra links on the Uploads Panel that lists uploads with a low amount of votes. They are called respectively "Least voted uploads with no locks" and "Least voted uploads with locks".
You can use these links track down the images that you should vote on to get extra points. Back in Feb 2013, I came up with a system to encourage people to vote on uploads that have less than 10 votes.
Sure, images that have less vote are usually less interesting, hence why you get the bonus points.
Overall, this was put in place to help each image get a decent rating average by combining a good amount of votes from several users rather than being singled out as a bad or good bearhug by just one or two votes.

|Merry Christmas 2014! :) - Thursday December 25th 2014 (News ID: 1627)||[ Back to top ]|
Merry Christmas everyone!
I don't have anything special to post this year, but, as with previous years, your upload votes are worth 10x more points on the 25th and on the New Year, so have fun and vote.
I hope you guys enjoy the holiday season and I hope you're spending it either with your family, your friends, your loved ones or everyone all together.

|Illustrations from 3rd party sites - Saturday December 13th 2014 (News ID: 1623)||[ Back to top ]|
I've noticed an increase of bearhug illustration submissions lately and unfortunately, many of these images have restrictions imposed by the author or artist.
Make sure you ask for the artist's permission if you post any images from FurAffinity or DeviantArt networks and communities to bearhugger.net
Both these 3rd party networks make it very clear on who is the original author of a given drawing.
The thing is that these individual artists tend to be quite a bit more active than companies in requesting to take down their artwork. I would even say that I have received in the past year a higher amount of requests for content removal from artists than from companies.
Worst case scenario, you can always go on these 3rd party sites and type "bearhug" on your search query. You'll find hundreds, if not, thousands of bearhugs. Keep in mind that a good 80-90% of these authors don't want their content posted elsewhere, so it never really hurts to ask for their permission before you attempt any type of redistribution. I also don't really see a need to duplicate information on several sites especially when both those two third-party sites already have a very good search system, unless you want to make it easier to search it here by adding all the relevant tags and fields.

|Product identifications - Sunday November 24th 2013 (News ID: 1573)||[ Back to top ]|
In case you haven't noticed, all bearhug uploads attached to a company can now have their product name identified.
This also means that we would need to go back to those 18,000 current bearhug uploads to identify the product name for each of those images. About only half of those (9,000) are bearhug from companies, but that's still a huge number to deal with. Luckily, about a third of them are now already identified since I've been able to put the biggest bearhug sets together and batch identify them.
So, why support this now? Well, sometimes the bearhugger and victim is insufficient information and it makes it difficult for users to pinpoint the exact video. Popular wrestlers like Brad Rochelle, Z-Man and others have appeared in countless amount of videos from countless amount of companies making a search for a specific one tedious. Having the product name will undoubtedly make this task easier.
Bearhugger.net is currently doing a post request to BG East, Can-Am, PWP and Thunder's Arena. Usually, these kinds of requests aren't seen as something good, but in this case, the site simply forwards your search query to those companies. It saves you trouble of manually going to the site, entering the product name and hit that "Search" button. In any cases, if these companies don't want requests to be forwarded, they can configure their site to block external requests, but it is their interest to have their forms open to everyone.
Needless to say, product names still needs to be entered manually, so if you feel like doing it, +3,000 bearhug points are currently awarded for each product name you can identify for each upload. You can start by clicking here, here or here.
Also, please simplify the titles. If it's Battlespace 18 - Wrestler X vs Wrestler Y, then please just call it Battlespace 18.
On a side note, I added three extra pages to provide statistics about the categories and sub-categories associated to all the bearhug uploads hosted on the site. These stats are accessible from the Uploads Panel. You will see the listing of Companies by most pics, Bearhug by types and Biggest Bearhug Sets.
Unsurprisingly, the most common bearhugs are from BG East, followed by Thunder's Arena, tailing with WWE in third place. Can-Am and PWP are battling closely for fourth and fifth places.
Also another unsurprising fact: the most common bearhug types are the lifted frontal bearhugs, followed by the regular frontal ones and then the reverse ones. Nothing new there...

|Bearhug Uploads Activity - Saturday November 9th 2013 (News ID: 1569)||[ Back to top ]|
There has been quite some activity lately in the Bearhug Uploads.
A great amount of image content contributions has been generously provided by MisterWoodtoyou (id 1452), Magnus Orestes (id 640) and WalterG (id 2846). Combined, they account for more than 100 new bearhugs in the past week.
You can have a look at the Bearhug by date to determine what you've missed or you can simply go straight to the list of all Newest Uploads.
|Some new uploads - Sunday July 14th 2013 (News ID: 1550)||[ Back to top ]|
Have a look at the Bearhug Uploads, WalterG (id 2846) submitted a handful of new bearhugs goodies to share with everyone.
There are images with your studly Johnny Bravo and others with lean guys like Mac Matthias. To each their taste I suppose.
|Minor players - Sunday April 7th 2013 (News ID: 1531)||[ Back to top ]|
There's been enough focus lately from big names and major players in the adult wrestling industry. How about we focus a bit more on the minor players?
Check out the Uploads section for a variety of recent and new bearhugs from the names you hear much less about... There's some Mission4Muscle, Steel Muscle God, Hunk Muscle Show and Muscle Domination Wrestling. These are all small key players that can become pretty big if they can get the right amount of spotlight or attention.
If you want, you can try to be a bit more generous with them in terms of voting so they can get a better visibility than your usual BG or Thunders.
|It's Unlocking Time! - Friday October 19th 2012 (News ID: 1487)||[ Back to top ]|
Each month, I unlock a few bearhugs.. free them from points to give access to everyone.
This is for those of you who do not have sufficient points to unlock them or do not have points to start with (either you never contributed content to the site or you are just a lurker)
Simply add a comment to this news item mentioning which Upload ID should be unlocked for everybody. You can also see this listing to view the uploads that are locked or you can get there through the Upload Locks Panel from the Bearhug Uploads Panel.
Note that I cannot unlock content that is more on the ... adult side. Both wrestlers must have proper wrestling wear.

|New Uploads - Sunday September 9th 2012 (News ID: 1477)||[ Back to top ]|
There has been a good amount of bearhugs submitted recently. If you are not a regular visitor of the Bearhug Uploads section, make sure you take a look now.
Or, if you prefer to view it the traditional way, you can check the Upload Galleries ordered by ID. These gallery numbers are static, so they always stay the same, new ones appear at the bottom. Using the next and previous button in the galleries comes to the same.
If you are picky with your bearhugs, you might just want to use the two new category that have been added: Newest Pro Wrestling Bearhugs or Newest Bearhugs from Companies or even Newest Individual Bodybuilder Bearhugs. These are all accessible from the Uploads Panel.
|Sam's Bearhugs - Wednesday October 26th 2011 (News ID: 1391)||[ Back to top ]|
If you missed them last month, make sure you check out Sam's Bearhugs.
Sam submitted a large amount of personal bearhugs which you can find in the Bearhug Uploads section or by clicking here.

|Lots of bearhug uploads submissions - Monday August 15th 2011 (News ID: 1371)||[ Back to top ]|
There has been quite a bit of activity in the Bearhug Uploads as of late.
Around a hundred new uploads have been submitted. These major contributions are from Tigrexmen (id 640) and WalterG (id 2846), so a huge thank you to them for sharing all those wonderful images with us all.
To see all the uploads, make sure you use the "Next page" button near the bottom of the Bearhug Uploads page.
|New bearhugs: Mission4Muscle + Teen Hercule - Thursday June 16th 2011 (News ID: 1352)||[ Back to top ]|
A couple of new bearhugs from Mission4Muscle and Teen Hercule have been added to the Bearhug Uploads section.
The one from Mission4Muscle features Frank the Tank tackling on BamBam and the one from Teen Hercule... well, you'll have to see it for yourself below. It's the context that leads to the wrestling match that's pretty neat.
Hmm.. I kinda wish that all my chess games would end this way...
Btw, I didn't misspell Hercule, the author spelled it that way. I guess that's what makes him different and better than the real Hercules.
I'm going to reiterate here that if you enjoyed the preview and the pics, you should get the video from the Teen Hercule site. The first few years of establishment of a company are crucial. You actually don't want these guys to bite the dust like many others.

|New Top Lists - Saturday April 30th 2011 (News ID: 1343)||[ Back to top ]|
I've expanded three 100 Top Lists to 300 Top Lists. Those lists are the following:
Best Sponsored Bearhugs, which simply means that only companies who are sponsoring the site and who have a high rating among members can appear in that list.
As with all listings, a minimum of 10 votes on the upload is required before the award starts to appear.
All other lists remain unchanged and can be accessed from the Uploads Panel.
