This is a “special request topic” by a Kink of the Week regular who’s anniversary falls this week, and who’s main fetish with her partner is Furries/Pet Play. She had originally phrased it to be “Pet Play & Furries,” but I kind of wanted to narrow the topic down a bit, as I believe there may be some distinctions between the two, and there are a number of kinksters that do pet play of some sort without ever getting into the”furries” aspect (and possibly furry play that isn’t pet play?) Since I’ve never come into contact with it, I’m really curious about that particular subculture.

That said, I have no CLUE about furries, what motivates them, what they enjoy about their kink, what it does for them and how a relationship that has a furry (or more than one) in it might work.

How does this particular kink work?

About “Furry Fandom”, Wikipedia says:

The furry fandom is a subculture interested in fictional anthropomorphic animal characters with human personalities and characteristics.Examples of anthropomorphic attributes include exhibiting human intelligence and facial expressions, the ability to speak, walk on two legs, and wear clothes. Furry fandom is also used to refer to the community of people who gather on the Internet and at conventions.

They also include this adorable picture (okay if I could look like this, I might get into it):

Ever known a furry or been into furry play? What does it do for you? How does a dynamic that includes one or more furry partner work? Is this a kink that involves D/s (I know that many pack animals are highly dominant/submissive)? And okay…since I get to ask the questions, here’s what i REALLY want to know: Is it sexual? How does that work??

So c’mon, tell me something new, teach me something, let’s talk about furries!!
