So, do you like tentacles in furry art, find them disturbing, or take more of a neutral stance?

Me, I recall the first time that I saw them, I was pretty amazed, and found them very...appealing. I had never imagined such a thing.

But then I noted that the whole idea was nothing new, or unique to furries, or even anime, and can be traced to Japan's Edo Period (1602-1868). Most famously is the Example of The Dream of The Fisherman's Wife, dating to 1814. But early Japanese shunga aside, I've always found it a fascinating idea. And proof that it's not only furries, who, shall we say, have vivid imaginations. : P

Please keep any tentacle images to a G-Rated family level : )

Perosnally I am not interested in tentacles. I'm probably one of the most vanilla people on the forum.

I like the Tokyo Ghoul version of it, which is Ken Kaneki and Rize's Kagune.

That's about the peak of my interest.

I'm a fan of tentacles. They're the tastiest part of calamari!

I like them but not in a tentacle porn way.
Multiple orifice penetration and nonconsensual themes are unappealing.
And sentient disembodied tentacles make no sense.

But real octopus are fascinating. Tentacle art is ok if it's done right.
But it's mostly not.

I like tentacles as a character or creature design element. I will shamelessly admit i designed a dragon with a tentacle mane cuz i remembered someone had a 'species' that was a doberman with tentacle hair and i thought it was cool. I'm not a fan of tentacle porn though.

Nope, don't like it. I don't give a shit who does, just don't force it upon me and we're good

Poor cephalopods, now seen as sexual devices in fetish art rather than the often clever and diverse creatures they are.

Furry Fandom is like tentacle hentai

It's weird but it feels good
I'm fairly certain it was always the exact selfsame meme. I mean, what else could it be.

I'm honestly far more fascinated by how something like this could have been produced in any 1814 culture, though I suppose nothing's really changed since then, except maybe people forget it's about octopus raping women.

I generally find tentacles boring, unless you can integrate them in a character in some smart way.
Cephalopods are awesome but random tentacles in art is just..bleh.

Octopus sashimi is delicious. The poll needed that as an option!

As for sexual stuff... NOPE!

I'm pretty neutral on it. Tentacle rape, or any rape, is awful. Regular tentacles can be okay if they're attatched to another sentient being, I think. Like a goo anthro, that's preferable.

definitely did not look at yiff last night.
Meh, not a fan, but I don't find them repulsing either. They can be cool in the right situations, though.

Also, nice tags ;) "yum" lmao

My reason for liking the idea of tentacle sex is the immense "hug" potential: tentacles can curl and coil around every part of your body, enveloping you completely, an embrace far more powerful (and sexy I guess? XD) than any real hug.

(btw, that's also the same reason why I tend to like snake/naga characters too :p )

Ah, same here! That also goes along with what I call my 'consensual' tentacle approach: when I have scenarios in mind with them, it's as if they telepathically.magically sense what I want (even in my unconscious), and despite my (nominal) resistance, deliver the goods : P
