Why Yiff?

First thing's first: Try to keep it PG-13, and if your answer has to do with cub art or anything like that...well you know the rules on that. I hope.

Pretty much, it's just a question asking why you personally either look at yiff/read about it, draw it/get it drawn for you, and so on. This is NOT intending to be a "bash on yiff" where we all come on and bash on those into yiff or those not into yiff.

For me personally, I've not written yiff, though sometimes I'm curious to try my hand at writing it, just to see how it goes. I do have a couple yiff/yiffy pictures in my gallery, and that's honestly for my own perverted pleasure of seeing two characters, one of my own and the other belonging to someone else. Though it's not as explicit or smutty as some of the other art I've seen.

So yeah! There we go. Just throwing that out there, and I guess we'll see how it goes.

Once again: no talk of cub stuff, and please, don't devolve this into a bash fest. Or else uh...things.

seen it i think it just like any other drawing but but with nudity . Never read it through but i assume that it would be filled with tons of cliches.

I write porn, in an admittedly ironic twist of fate (I'm asexual). It's mostly because I still have lingering, largely-impossible ideas floating around my head that even my anti-psychotics and alcoholism can't get rid of, and the only consistent way I've been able to get them out is by sitting down and typing it out in black and white (...I lost a couple therapists as well) - They otherwise serve no purpose, except to entertain others who are as perverted and needlessly excessive as I am, and maybe keep flexing my braingunk to show I still got it.

I'd draw it too if I could, make a pretty penny on the strange-end of the fandom I'm on, but I lack those skills, and thus I write.

I think yiff (whether it be written or drawn) is interesting and "fun" to read/look at simply because it is incredibly sensual both physically and emotionally.

Sure, read a normal book and you sorta, kinda understand the characters... but when you add yiff or adult-rated romantic content, then people probably get more involved and more entertained by the stuff you write or draw.

TL;DR: Sex is relateable and engaging, opening up new layers of emotion within characters.

Personally what I think makes this fandom so attractive is that it not only is influenced by normal everyday life but also by dreams and desires. Good yiff = nice looking characters that are not burdened with the daily grind of the human world enjoying life and each other. What's not to like about that?

I develop attachments to certain characters, and for that reason I like to see them get off, or, write something where a version of me gets to have them. It's the closest I'll ever get, so it makes me happy.

You know, I actually expected almost exclusively seeing the usual "I'm horny and wanna get my rocks off" responses in this thread, but now that you guys mention it, I guess there is indeed more at work here than just lust. Personally, I think the furry fandom has grown to be much more than just anthro characters. It's becoming more a fandom of, if you don't mind me getting a little cheesy here, dreams.

Because like all animals humans are drawn to sexual actions because they are pleasurable. By association and the work of mirror neurons people see the yiff and they get that good feeling

Need to make the dollahz somehow. Need the practice (thank you /b/ draw threads).
On the consumer side, only based Katia. Not even someone as disgruntled, bitter and foul towards the pron draws as I can resist her allure. Fuck you Kazerad. (But then again it's mainly her character I find attractive, not appearance).

Well, that I can understand. That's kinda one reason why I did get Niko and Tamagi (two of my characters) drawn in some yiffy pictures.

It's just that when you see huge black winged demon furry thing with a harem, and not only that but the demon furry has this massive red cock that has what look like spikes or spike like appendages coming out of it....well then you start to wonder a couple of things.

1) Because sometimes you need to get your rocks off, and sometimes a partner isn't available, or wouldn't be willing or able to consent to the particular scenario you have in mind.

2) Because porn and erotica involving humans is often too close-to-home or too grounded-in-reality, to the point where it's boring, unsettling, and/or funny.

That's the best I can reckon, anyway.

I look at yiff due to FA's high yiff traffic but my dinky doo doesn't do the vibrating thing.
I feel nothing towards it, except maybe some disgust if it's over the top.
VERY RARELY do I look at a yiff piece and think "huh, that was very well done"
