I don't understand the 'no strings attached' phenomena during casual sex. I always find sex to be intimate on some level and always feel some connection. But at the same time, I don't end up wanting to be their BF. I just feel satisfied, and it is a total depression killer. Guess I'm just lucky .
Just because you feel a connection with someone, doesn't mean you want to marry them and be with them forever and ever . I only need affection every once in a while, and rarely get lonely as long as I can get lucky (or sometimes just affection without sex is fine, which makes me grateful to be in the furry fandom where people are more open to cuddling/hugs, etc). But I guess that is just me...
I know right?? Then again I live in the burbs so I can't judge... much. Still I always saw furries as more of a modern phenomena, so I would expect to see it more in cities.
And furries seem to be mainly middle-class, or so it seems.
That sounds like a very healthy outlook! And I hope you have luck, getting lucky
Yea, it is odd. I think some of it has to do with issues of race and class: both cities are more or less segregated into very poor areas, and then, areas with much more money, especially in DC; Baltimore has more of a mixture. And furries seem to be mainly middle-class, or so it seems. It would be curious to do a sociological survey of furry demographics in the US: Age, race, class, sex, sexual preference, &c, and then compare the to the population at large.

There are a few sites that do, do this but there isn't really any new ones; here is one that is a bit oldr if you are curious. It doesn't answer all your questions but it does offer a lot of information.
