Do you think our fetishes are representative of deep desires?

Fetishes are irrational urges that turn you on for some weird reason. Whether it is possible in real life or not doesn't really matter.
So yeah, I think they do represent some of our deep desires. Irrational and subconscious desires.

As for the more weirder fetishes like inflation, "anal vore" and crap like that... I honestly don't think they are legitimate fetishes. I am convinced that some people just came up with it and then it turned viral, in a weird pervy way.
I know that I said above that I do think that fetishes represent subconscious desires, but putting people into your ass as a subconscious desire that you just have for no reason...? Come on >__>

I can verify that inflation is an actual fetish having been with someone with said fetish.

To have fetish is essentially a desire sexually related to a particular object or scenario, to that statement. Although I am pretty sure a lot of the stuff people deeply desire in Furry artwork they will never really want in reality unless they have some mental sickness.

It's more like we've desired to have sex with those particular characters. Same sort of situation with all those kids back then who wanted to get kinky with Lady Jane or The Baroness ("I heard you liked cobras. *whip crack* ;)").

To better drive the point home, any men or lesbians here remember Cheetarah?

Now that you say it, I think someone once linked me to a video on Xtube of someone inflating himself...
I guess that one was a bad example XD Let's go with "unbirthing" instead.

This is kind of what I was talking about in my first post on this thread:

For other things such as furry, even though I see an early obsession with anthropomorphics, at least to where I can remember at about 5 years old, I think it just developed into a 'fetish' later. Some people would even call what some of us have as an 'orientation' rather than a 'fetish' within the furry fandom.

I'm not willing to go that far on it, but I'm pretty sure my more adult interest in furry is just a natural extension of a time and money consuming lifelong obsession.

It's not as much a fetish for me at all, as much is it is that I might have perverted my orientation towards furry art being able to be erotic through constant exposure and identification with anthropomorphized animals.

I...what? What sort of logic led you to thinking that? :T

They are just so weird, it's the only logical explanation I could come up with XD
I mean, imagine a dude browsing FA. And then he comes across an "anal vore" image and he goes "YES! THIS IS NOW MY FETISH!". I don't think fetishes work like that :p
Also, FA and other furry communities pretty much the only places where I see some of those more exotic things...

But of course I could be on the entirely wrong track here. I tend not to do much reseach on things that make my stomach turn :p

Well, you said it yourself, these are irrational attractions. There is no logical explanation, save for the reasons any individual could give you for being attracted to butt vore or the like.

But this isn't even something you can do! That is my point. It is physically impossible to put an entire person up your ass.
Take being into feet for example. Feet exist, they are just a random bodypart. It is entirely irrational to have a giant attraction towards feet but at least this is something that you can do.

Once more, using your own fucking words: these are irrational attractions. They have absolutely no basis in reality. They have no basis in procreation. It doesn't fucking matter if it is impossible in real life, because, and say it with me this time, these are irrational attractions.

Maybe I am just biased because I think some of these fetishes on FA are just plain retarded...

Okay before we all get at each other's throats, wtf did the OP mean

does he mean "do you wish you could do your fetish in real life, whatever it may be" or does he mean something else?

I sometimes have sexual fantasies that I decidedly do NOT want to happen in real life, and a lot of it comes from some of the fucked up sexual teachings I absorbed in childhood. I'm trying to rid myself of some of these fantasies/fetishes because I realize that whenever a situation comes even remotely close to the fetish, in real life I become extremely turned OFF and want to run as far the fuck as possible away from it.

When I interpreted the OP to mean something literal, people started shouting that he didn't mean it literally, so wtf did he mean then

OP's vague as shit, and he's too scared to be honest. The thread means ~whatever you want it to mean~.

I mean in a mostly metaphorical sense, although some fetishes can reflect actual literal desires as well. Once again, it depends on the person. See this additional explanation for a couple particular fetishes below as an example:


The concept of transformation is actually much more straightforward than you'd think. Simply put, people want to be someone or something else. This can be for as simple a reason as being more attractive or as complex as wanting to escape ones life completely and embrace a new form and state. Either way, if you'd like to improve or change any aspect of yourself at all, you can't deny the concept has appeal.


Transformation porn usually comes with bondage or being forced somehow to do it which, as you said, represents giving up control. Now let's put two and two together and bring up an example of all the things we just discussed. So, we look at tentacle/vore-transformation porn which, on the surface, looks really weird. But when we break it down, it represents giving in and giving up control while becoming someone or something the viewer wants to be for whatever reason.


Hopefully that all made sense.

Is it me, or is this thread destined to go somehow like "...So foxes are sluts?" did about a year ago?

That's different. Desires to conducting unrealistic fetishes is an individuals opinion whereas foxes being sluts is a scientific fact.

Yep. What I can't explain is hard vore. It's pretty much the exact opposite of soft vore. That may be one of those fetishes that denote a problem in ones mind. I don't know.

I imagine it's a product of having such crazy low self-esteem, that you feel that you're only good to used as literal shit. At least that's the only explanation I can think up because Jesus, that shit is cray.

"Do you think our fetishes are representative of deep desires? " = "Do you think our fetishes are metaphors for our deep desires?"

As opposed to, what, superficial desires?

this discussion is pointless imho unless someone wants to tell me what good comes from trading vague statements

Uh...literal?

I don't think the discussion is pointless. It's basically a psychological evaluation of what type of fetish would symbolize for the person that holds it.

This is what slays me. If nothing else, someones fetish is ultimately a desire they hold deep within (e.g. a deep desire), whether or not it's actually played out. In terms of Vore, or otherwise 'deadly' fetishes, the fetishist puts their *character* in that position (which is representative of their living selves), and even if they die, no harm is actually done (given it's a fictional character) - Though that extent is usually avoided or misconstrued, because it eliminates the realism.

I don't quite understand what you're saying here. Are you trying to give an explanation for painful fetishes or... ?
