    WOOF -

    This is something that men have said to me here.
    I know lots of stuff but i will confess that when men say this,
    i don't know what it means.
    Will anyone translate this one syllable for me please? And thank you.

    Its what most bears say from one to another... like a mating call.
    A "bear" is a hairy gay guy... (also some others with subtle variations).

    Its like saying, "hey cutie" but all in one word.
    Happy hunting!

    It is shorthand for "Oh my God, you are hot!"

    We have a WOOFfest here in Ft Lauderdale every year, with a clothing-optional party around the pool of one of the many guest houses in town.

    It's a lot of fun, but I'm glad I'm not the one who cleans out the pool filter when it's over: you could make a coat with all that hair, I'm sure.

    More importantly, do you answer with a growl, another woof, or something louder?

    Exactly. When I woof at you, it means I am liking what I am seeing or hearing.

    You don't have to be. I am not hairy either. I do consider myself a part of the bear community (my hubby is a bear).

    You can WOOOF! back or Growl (this is typed as "GrrRRrr").

    As Bbucko said, a low growl can work very well.

    I say "woof" when my team wins at COD 4. But I don't think I mean it in quite the same way. :rolleyes:

    "Woof!" originated on the Bear scene, but seems to be spreading.

    How about "Phwoar" (pronounced like fffwore)? I think that came from building site workers and van-drivers, got popularised by the British tabloid press then adopted by UK gay men. Means the same thing - "hot!"

    I've taken it as a compliment.

    I think it's a gay guy thing, because no straight woman has ever said that to me.
