    Science time!
    I'd like to collect a list of the state of people's sexuality compared to how long they've been in the fandom. At yearly intervals, estimate your attraction to attraction to the opposite sex and to your own sex. Remember, attraction to one does no necessarily determine attraction or lack thereof to the other! For example, Hetero 100% Homo 0% is fully straight, Hetero 0% Homo 0% is asexual, 100 100 is bi, 0 100 is gay, etc. Format it like this:

    Male (my gender)
    70, 0 (year one)
    80, 0 (year two)
    70, 10
    60, 30
    80, 40
    80, 50
    60, 40

    Optional: Any more information you think is important
    or a story or something who doesn't like stories

    If/when this gets a statistically significant amount of data I'll make charts and post them

    Update: include every year you've shown any interest in the fandom, not just involvement

    Are we counting actual activity in the fandom, or just been a part of it? I've pretty much been a part of the fandom(although not really active at all) since like 2008, anniversary is today on the 7th of November.

    Male
    100, 0
    100, 0
    100, 0
    100, 0
    100, 0
    100, 0
    100, 0
    100, 0
    100, 0

    Must say, I don't like your scales. Seems ambiguous. Especially since it's not percentages of a whole.

    For example, say I was straight but, like all people, picky. Should I put down 10% for opposite gender attraction since I reckon that I'd only want to actually bone about ten percent of the male population? Or would I put 100% since all of my fantasies and desires include dudes?

    What does it mean to be 70/70? Or 12/15? Sure 0 is no attraction at all, but is 100 really all of the attraction? And if so, does that mean attraction to all of that group, all of the time, always?

    My pedantic ass needs definitions!

    RuffusTheLynx Pff... just a casual lynx...

    Science in furry fandom?
    Oh my god, i'm on the heaven!
    ...
    Ok, i found the fandom about 4 years ago but just 3 months before i think i officialy became a furry.

    Male
    100%, 0% (all the years)


    A little story: Before finding the fandom i had so many friends who were gay or bi...

    the point is that they apparently tried to fuck me or something xdddddd

    It’d be better to add a poll and link to a Kinsey survey website, then ask people to vote based on what they got in the polls. I’m asexual in the sense that im not attracted to men or women of any species so 0/0

    Issue is you have so many people who fall into such weird categories, its hard to make an accurate representation of everyone’s sexuality

    Edit : i’ve Also been active in the fandom for about 4 years, stalking it for about 7 years

    I think it's interest that counts rather than involvement

    Ah, ok. Well, my numbers still stand. xD

    My sexuality's unchanged and have been unchanged ever since I hit puberty. :p

    But will edit for the sake of some consistency.

    I was thinking a combination of sex drive towards that particular gender attraction (physically only) to that percentage of the population. Like 70/70 would be a relatively average bisexual, with a relatively higher than normal sex drive and relatively average to low standards, and 12/15 would be a bisexual with a low sex drive and very high standards. I left it more open-ended because I was afraid people wouldn't understand or take the time to answer something so specific

    I'm not even gonna bother with the official format cuz not only do i not know how long i've been in the fandom for but i also know i've been ace/aro for my entire life and it hasn't fluctuated even slightly. I'm female btw.

    I am not most people, clearly. I am a social scientist and I need clear, defined variables. :)
    I'm still not super on board. Mixing together sex drive and standards makes the numbers less useful as 12/15 might be an equal combination of low drive and high standards, or it could be an average drive but they only experience attraction to like one person. 70/70 could be high drive/moderate standards or moderate drive/low standards. As for myself, my numbers would go down over time, but I'm not getting any pickier, my drive is just dropping off. But just seeing the numbers wouldn't make that distinction. Conflating two variables muddies the waters and makes it harder to make any claims with this data you're gathering.
    Personally, if you want to keep your scales, I would nix drive. Make it purely about what percent of that population you are attracted towards regardless of how often or vigorously you want to bone. If you make it explicit that this is about sexual attraction (as opposed to romantic or physical/aesthetic attraction) then 0/0 is still ace and the numbers greater than that actually have clear meaning.

    I was honestly restraining myself from being more technical, I hate non-specific terms like this but like it's a post on a furry forum website with what, like 500 active members? No conclusive or significant data will ever come out of this, it's mostly just for fun. Maybe if we're lucky we'll get enough points to plot to draw a trend line and that's just about as scientific as it's going to get. (although it would be cool to really conduct a survey like this)

    Straight dude here. I've been around the fandom for about 17 years, and I've remained completely straight. Not macho or whatever, as I'm more of a nerdy/artsy type, but I can't say that I've ever been interested in men. I just think furry women are cute, and the concept of furries is fun regardless of sex or gender.

    connortheskunk definitely did not look at yiff last night.

    My story is very strange. Ever since about a year and a half ago when I started puberty and first gained a sex drive, I'd been your stereotypical teenager sex maniac--I masturbated pretty much every other night. Regular porn didn't turn me on, but transformation art did, so I guess I had transformation fetish. It didn't take me even a month after I first got a sex drive to discover this fetish, though surprisingly, I didn't discover the furry fandom until a little over a month ago. Ever since the night I discovered the fandom and discovered the fact that I was a furry, I have had no sex drive at all. I had plans to go to homecoming with this girl I liked but I cancelled because I didn't feel a connection with her anymore. All my crushes went away, and I haven't masturbated a single time in over a month. It was very strange but it doesn't bother me anymore since I don't feel like anything is missing.

    So before I discovered the fandom I was 100/0, and now I am 0/0

    Fair.

    Now to actually be helpful, here's my stats. All data is presented in the order HetAttraction/HomoAttraction. I will not be including sex drive in my estimates, and all percentages are based on age appropriate populations for my age at the time, as opposed to the total population of that gender. Everything is guestimates, obviously.

    Gender: Female
    2010- 26/24
    2011- 30/27
    2012- 25/30
    2013- 23/33
    2014- 21/37
    2015- 19/40
    2016- 17/42
    2017- 17/42

    I don't really think that the fandom had anything to do with the shifts. 2010/2011 was my first year in college. I was just beginning to accept the fact that I was bi, and was hoping that moving from a town of 300 to a city of millions would up my dating prospects. I was casting a wide net, so to speak. As I got older, I realized that I needed better standards, developed a pretty strong "type" for guys, and just fully embraced my attraction to ladies, which is vast.

    Also, while things may seem low, we should all keep in mind that 17% of the male population is still a lot of people.

    My sexuality fluctuates on a day to day basis. Some days I'm gayer than a rainbow bag filled with butterflies in a glitter storm, the next day I'm straight as hell, and the third day for no explainable reason I'm Burger King.

    Crimcyan Im fox now, BAMBOOZLED

    I guess this will be around my 1st year mark when i started to get interested with furries so
    Male
    100/0
    But for a straight guy i have hit on my other male friends as jokes but it was very convincing just to piss them off beacuse they really dont like anything to do with homosexuals. Except for my one friend who got me into this fandom she is gay as fuck.
    Im also not really interested in anytype of relationship too, i had a really cute girl my age hit on me and even asked one of my friends to get my phone number. But i turned it down beacuse i really couldn't give a fuck, and im also way to busy with my own stuff dont need to get involved with other peoples stuff
