I used to get teased a lot in school for liking what’s called the furry fandom. Mentioning of the furry fandom usually gives people a vision of people in fursuits or people wearing cat ears. It also, unfortunately, and falsely, conjures up images of sexually depraved people who want only sex and to have sexual relations with animals or to engage in endless orgies and drugs and alcohol. However the furry fandom goes further then just wanting to scare your neighbor in an animal costume or wanting to dress like a sexy cat.
The furry fandom is people who like humanized animals. This however can mean A LOT of different things for different people. The furry fandom usually starts with people liking cartoon animistic but human-ish characters. It is a very deep and almost complex fandom. It can go from simply liking cartoon animals like Donald duck, wearing ears and tails, wearing fursuits or turning it into a fetish.
So you might find yourself asking, Why would someone make that a fetish?! Well lets clear one thing up really quick. It isn’t about beastiality. A lot of furs don’t like the idea of harming an animal, let alone taking advantage of it sexually. There’s a difference between wanting to fuck rover and liking to look at sexy humanly animal babes all day.
I myself am what’s known as an otherkin furry. I see my fursona and even myself as a well…a half dragon and half cat. I know right? Creative! But unfortunately hard to explain. I do know however I found that I really loved those two animals and even acted like them. Like I don’t run around on all fours screaming and ‘roaring’, no but I do like pet-play and I love being my husband’s pet. If you don’t know who that is read my about me page. 🙂
For future references an otherkin is a person that feels that they not only really really like an animal but that their soul is that animal. I almost feel like finding out you’re an otherkin and literally seeing yourself as well an animal in your mind can be almost as important as your sexual identity and even sexuality. For me finding out what animals I really enjoyed was a soul searching experience. I’d love to hear your guys’ thoughts in the comments.
