Where you getting that stuff about the majority from?
All the intel i found says for many it isn’t a sexual thing
o, it’s not a “fetish”
Furry sex is what one FAU furry, “Alex” — an opossum character chose to remain anonymous in both name and fursona — calls the “elephant in the room.”
The “main misconception,” they said, is that being a furry means you have a twisted fetish.
Part of the reason that this misconception is common is because of the portrayals of furries on television and the internet. One such portrayal was an infamous episode of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” called “Fur and Loathing.”
In the episode, a furry is alleged to be a murderer and is brought in for an interrogation. The cops’ line of questioning eventually leads him to admit that he, at some point in the crime’s timeline, participated in a “furpile,” defined as “when all the animals start rubbing and wiggling.”
Furries argue that not only are these portrayals unrepresentative of the community, but they also have unfortunate consequences.
Furries dress up like animals and have sex.
Partial (usually a head, hands and feet) or full animal suits (called fursuits) aren’t uncommon among furries, but not every furry wears a fursuit. In fact, the majority of furries will never own a fursuit. Of those who do own one or more fursuits, only a fraction of those will actually have sex while wearing one. Fursuits are also expensive even if made by yourself, difficult to clean, and easily cause overheating. Because of that, it’s rarely ideal to use the suits in sexual acts. Overall, only a small percent of furries will have sex while dressed as an animal.
Furries revealed: Study finds only 4% of enthusiasts say their ‘fandom’ is about sex (although 35% of the public thinks otherwise)
- A study analyzed annual surveys going back to 2009 to find out more on furries
- It found that just 4 percent of furries rank sex an important part of the lifestyle
- Nearly a quarter are Christian, and another 12% practice a different religion
All the research seems to say that you are wrong in your beliefs about furries.
