A Big Question

Parabellum3

I'm not a furry if I have feathers.
This is something that has been bothering me for a bit. Why is about 90% of FA all about sex and anything else related to sex? What is so special about it that makes it the dominant theme in art and literature? Are people this horny or what? Like it makes the fandom look bad and no wonder people refer to us as "dog fuckers" and all kinds of other colorful adjectives that relate to that subject. Also it seems that the only a way to make friends on there is to have the same idea as most, which is sex! In my opinion it is incredibly stupid that there is very little variety on there. Might as well make the whole site exclusive to pornography like e621 or Rule 34.

However, it does quite interest me as to why people do this. What does go on their mind?

All fandoms are like this, the only thing is furry fandom is more open about it while the others are like "oh we're so pure we don't watch or draw +18 content"and point at furries being the bad and disgusting ones. Meanwhile they enjoy it secret as well, and those who say they don't, they openly lie. =)

How you doing
The 4 days i've been here i noticed that everyone is open to talk about the NSFW content, what they like, what they dont like, all that stuff, so i think thats why there's some sex related stuff in every thread. And im fine with being open about that UwU

Never doing UwU again

That butt thread was more than I normally expect from the fandom's openness to the sexual side.

I'll say that.


Not that I had a problem with it OwO

I don’t recall other fandoms but definitely this has to be the biggest in this case.

I haven’t noticed that much stuff on the forums in my time here, but yeah there is a lot of NSFW art floating around. I don’t have anything against it though.

I know, i think its safe to say that there's a lot more porn there than here
I’d definitely say that’s true per capita, bronies are so freaky

I’d say that calling it “NSFW” is an understatement. It’s just literal porn.

I think it has to do with i mean fuck man think about it
we all have these fursonas which are essentially animals
and one thing about animals is that one of their needs bottom of the pyramid is sexual shit so
it kinda makes sense
its very primal in nature, brotendo

I'd say it's also because you CAN talk about sex stuff here. There's plenty of other places to talk about other subjects, and people come here specifically to talk about sex. The fact that it's also about furry is just a bonus.

If I had to hazard a guess I'd say it's probably because sex sells, and someone trying to sell luxuries such as art will have a much more successful time if they offer adult works.

I think people are more prone to noticing it with furries simply because it's different. A whole lot of TV, films, print, advertisements, all that crap pushes sexually stimulating models and thoughts all the time. Furries just go all out is all I think.

Truth be told, more often then not things are about nsfw topics here. Now, I can just ignore them and move on, but often I can't help but feel excluded from many things, perhaps even looked down upon. Though this might be taken with a grain of salt because it could just as well be my lizard brain trying to tell me I'm not welcome.

However, despite my preference of keeping my intimacies to myself I managed to find lots of nice people around here and connect to the fandom as a whole. Many of my best friends on here consume plenty of nsfw media themselves on a daily basis, which is fine, because they respect my view of it and keep it to themselves near me.

It sells! The pornographic art market is booming!

That said, it's not really my jam. I don't find porn art very exciting unless it's animated and tailored to the very niche things I like, and hopefully has nice sounds. But that hardly ever happens.

So I ignore hundreds of art pieces that don't interest me, and I accept that it's mostly for money.

because as much as people don't like to admit it, most furries fetishize anthros, and that fetish is likely a majority of the reason they join the fandom to begin with, and in a fandom where it's so easy and affordable to stimulate that fetish, it's bound to be an integral part of it.

there's also the fact that artists capitalize on said fetish because it works, since the entire market is centered around people with this fetish, which is why NSFW art is everywhere and why just about everyone gets it. i feel like it's also why artists are treated like celebrities and deities in this fandom, but that's a rant for another thread.

I'm going to say three words: Freedom of speech. we can talk about what we want and people go along with it, and if they don't like it they go find a different conversation to be a part of, that made sense in my head but reading it back I'm not so sure
