We are a local gay community group where size matters. Our events aim to create a friendly environment where bears, cubs, “G-men” and other stocky and big-sized men – as well as the guys who love them – can hang out, exchange ideas and mingle.
We have shifted to facebook which makes things easier for us logistically. Please look for us at TheBearProject@Facebook
Add us there and you'll receive all the latest info and events. See you there!

Frequent masturbation may help men cut their risk of contracting prostate cancer, Australian researchers have found. It is believed that carcinogens may build up in the prostate if men do not ejaculate regularly, BBC News reported on Wednesday. The researchers surveyed more than 1,000 men who had developed prostate cancer, and 1,250 men who had not. They found that men who had ejaculated the most between the ages of 20 and 50 were the least likely to get cancer. Men who ejaculated more than five times each week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer.
Sexual intercourse may not have the same effect because of the higher risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease, which could in turn raise the risk of cancer. "Had we been able to remove ejaculations associated with sexual intercourse, there should have been an even stronger protective effect of ejaculations," Graham Giles of the Cancer Council Victoria, who led the researchers, said in the article.
The prostate produces a fluid that is incorporated into ejaculation, which activates sperm and prevents them from sticking together. Studies on animals have shown that carcinogens like 3-methylchloranthrene can be harbored in the prostate. Frequent ejaculation encourages the cancer-inducing fluids to "flush out."

Hey everybody, here's a nice event to gather :) To me, this is one movie all gay men must watch :p hahaha... So do catch it if you have not!
Under the Banyan Tree:
Open-Air Cinema - Wizard of Oz
Like Chaplin’s The Kid or E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, The Wizard of Oz simply lays bare primal emotions, exposes our childhood anxieties about abandonment and powerlessness, and brings to light the tension between the repressive comforts of home and the liberating yet terrifying unknown marking all our adult lives.
Dir: Victor Fleming. 1939. USA. 101 mins. PG. Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr
Admission price: FREE
Date: Fri Apr 25
Open times: 8pm
" In Making Things Perfectly Queer: Interpreting Mass Culture, Alexander Doty interprets Dorothy's journey as a young lesbian's search for identity. The female characters she encounters represent the extremes of identity, with Auntie Em and Glinda representing the traditional and the feminine, while Almira Gulch and the Wicked Witch of the West represent the butch. The Wizard of Oz has particular significance for the gay and lesbian community. The rainbow flag was first used in the 1978 San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Freedom Day Parade. The rainbow flag has connotations of diversity and multicuilturalism, but perhaps the most important association with this symbol is with Judy Garland, who sang "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" in The Wizard of Oz and has become such an icon for the gay community."
Hope to see you there :)

This is Cashmere Mafia, from the creators of SATC, produced by Sony Pictures Television and premiered on ABC this year in January 6th. Unfortunately this series have also been affected by the WGA Strike (Writers Guild of America Strike), only 7 out of 13 episodes were produced. So far I've read that Sony Pictures do not have plans to release them on DVD.
BUT... there is still hope of catching it on TV but unfortunately, it is only available on Singtel's MIO-Tv. *Cry* So those with MIO-Tv have the advantage!
Here is a link to find out more how to watch it on your own Tv: http://www.set-singapore.com/shows/cashmere-mafia/
*Not that I encourage piracy... but erm... you guys should know where else to get it from besides Sucky Singtel... :P

This one I'm quite skeptical to be frank... Jackie Chan has not been producing anything worth watching lately... However since it's loosely based on Journey To The West (my childhood's fave comic series) and it stars Jet Li, could be interesting :)
An American teenager who is obsessed with Hong Kong cinema and kung-fu classics makes an extraordinary discovery in a Chinatown pawnshop; the legendary stick weapon of the Chinese sage and warrior, the Monkey King.
With the lost relic in hand, the teenager unexpectedly finds himself traveling back to ancient China to join a crew of warriors from martial arts lore on a dangerous quest to free the imprisoned Monkey King.
The Forbidden Kingdom is a mega production starring Jackie Chan and Jet Li. Peter Pau (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) is director of photography.
Date: 19 April 2008, Saturday
Venue: Orchard Cineleisure
