Am I over thinking this? Or is this not a big of a deal and I'm worried for nothing?

Asked by KmiberDWZ (19points) 1 month ago

Is crushing on anthropomorphic cartoon animals considered zoophilia/bestiality? I’ve been thinking about this for awhile now and now I want a definite straight answer. I’m not gonna lie, I really don’t want to (and ever as a matter of fact) be labeled under one of those people who are very ‘fond’ of animals (and that includes anthropomorphic cartoon animals). And personally, I don’t have sexual fantasies (except maybe daydreaming about a kiss on the lips often but that’s it, nothing else, nothing farther than that) It’s weird, awkward, nasty, and just plain wrong on my opinion. Sometimes I do think it over and say to myself that I’m overreacting/thinking it way too hard and making it deeper than it has to be, but at the same time, I’m just not sure. If anyone can give an honest answer I would appreciate the help. Thanks! :)

A couple of points

- it isn’t zoophilia or bestiality. It may be an obsession with an illustration, but since the illustration isn’t alive (and never will be) and in any event is just as artist’s rendition of something, it isn’t anything too wierd.

- some people look at porn and drool. Some people look at sports cars and want them. Some people look at birds and get off on them. Visual stimuli trigger different people in different ways. Your stimulus happens to be a cartoon animal. No harm, no foul.

Honestly, you are overthinking this to the point of making a mountain out of a molehill. Don’t let yourself get overstressed and do self-analysis – it’s going to be wrong and unhealthy for you.

Finally, we all have sexual fantasies (despite what you say about yourself) – but some are better hidden than others.

It sounds like you have your answer. Don’t stress. Everyone has their kinks. As long as everyone is a consenting adult (or an illustration), then there’s nothing to worry about.

Maybe not.

So what are the ‘toons?

Jessica Rabbit immediately comes to mind. I’m not bad. I’m just drawn that way.
“Dabbling in watercolors, Eddie?” Who wouldn’t want to pick up the hobby?

Relax. You’re fine.

No, it’s not zoophilia, or bestilality, it’s just a normal kink that people have been having since at least Disney’s Robin Hood. There’s massive amounts of this kind of porn, because it’s popular.

Sexuality is only problematic if it makes you hurt others. Enjoy your own unique sexual journey, don’t hunt around for labels, respect the hell out of others, and you’ll be fine.
