01) Zoophilia/ Bestiality

“Zoophilia is the paraphilia in which a person becomes sexually aroused by fantasizing about or engaging in sexual contact with an animal.

Sex with animals is not as rare as one would think. In the Kinsey studies of the late 1940s, it was found that nearly half of all boys raised on a farm had had at least one sexual encounter with an animal- 17% of those interactions even led to orgasm. This practice is significantly less prevalent among females – 3.6% of the subjects in the Kinsey studies recalled zoophilic encounters.² It is important to state that zoophilic disorders are only diagnosed if sexual attraction and/or sexual relations with animals persists until after adolescence. This is a standard requirement in the DSM-V for diagnosing paraphilic disorders.¹”

Since humans are also animals…wouldn’t that definition make nearly every human a zoophile?

…And, every bit as important…if merely fantasizing about sex with a non-human animal [while masturbating, or having sex with another human?] qualifies you as a zoophile…this points out a held parallel with pedophilia…Namely, that it’s about the oriented attraction…not whether or not you are physically engaged in the sex act.

I find the prevalence of this practice amongst young boys to be quite instructive, as to the nature of their sexual needs in the face of available sexual options.

Do kids engage in zoophilia [or bestiality] because they cant do it with other humans?…or because they like doing it with the animals, as a preference?…Or is this “just the fun thing that is there in their lives, right now”, and they’re enjoying it to the fullest while it lasts?
