Begins as either a bear hug or a squeeze hug, but when the end of it is initiated, the non-initiating party waits a second longer and then slowly disengages, but allows their hand to sweep down the person's back and then lets go at the waist.
A lingering hug is awesome to witness or experience, if both parties are mutually attracted to one another, but terribly awkward if one or more parties is not interested.
A brief, manly embrace between two straight males.
