hairywoogit: Way I see it, while zoophilia is some pretty weird stuff to me, as long as the animal isn't being physically harmed, it isn't really my business.  Historically, there have been lots of cultures where zoophilia was an accepted part of life, and some religions that had icons built on the idea.  Hell, cows, pigs, and chickens are slaughtered on a grand scale, frequently in gruesome and painful ways, and nobody gives a shiate.  As long as society isn't getting on a high horse (heh) about McBurgers, the reaction to zoophilia is purely an "ooo it's icky" response.


No one wants your *meat* in their meat!

When pink slime mixes with white slime it isn't pretty.

There is a poorly sourced claim that bestiality is permitted in Islam so long as you don't use the animal for meat afterwards.  I've seen it often repeated, but couldn't locate the original scholarly/religious pronouncement.

chapman: ACunningPlan: Not in some countries - it's a wiki link so mightn't be completely accurate.

As somebody who fulfilled his substantial writing requirement writing about bestiality laws, I'm getting a kick out of these replies.   What's interesting is that the original emphasis was that in early American laws was a crime against nature (ie God.)  But as you move east to west and track the laws (and thus, generally track the passage of time as new states come into being), the emphasis shifts to the well being of the animal and eventually the well being of the person (because the laws start to track modern technology, where women and children were being exploited for pornography.)  Many states didn't even bother to have a law (Washington, as learned in the infamous Mr. Hands incident) others limit their laws to people involved being part of commerce or offending others by the act.  It really is interesting stuff but I am very happy I never had to use that research in any practical application of the law.


This here I have a difficult time understanding.  Crimes against nature....is that the story of the human race, a succession of crimes against nature?  And is it not the reason they are still allowed today in other forms and against certain aspects of nature decided by arbitrary human ideas?  Moreover, isn't it God who told man that the world and its beasts were put on this earth for their purposes?  That is until you get to Leviticus where beastiality is discussed in which the person who has defiled the animal is to be put to death as well as the animal.  The lack of logic is astounding.  What the hell did the animal do to deserve death?

Skr: When I saw the headline, I was wondering if "9% of Yale students have been paid for sex " included dinner and a movie.


more likely includes craigslist

LargeCanine: 100% of "sexologists" pull statistics out of their *ss.

That's not kinky.  It's the putting them IN that's kinky.

sodomizer: Liberal universities are such a bastion of stability, integrity and sanity.


When compared to the Republican party's sex antics?

Yes. Yes they are.

Glancing Blow: a group of about forty students

The workshop was taught by Jill McDevitt, a 27-year-old "sexologist" who also owns a sex shop in West Chester, Pennsylvaina, which sells vibrators and various sex toys.

Scientific as hell.


Hey, she also, and I quote from TFA, "has posted videos of her educational workshops online, including one in which she demonstrates oral sex on a carrot."

So the carrot's got that goin' for it anyways.

It's based on the theory of Natural law.  It's a fairly well developed philosophical theory that essentially relies on logic and observation.  Under such a theory, it stands to reason that humans and animals shouldn't have sex, they can't produce offspring and it is often dangerous.  On the other hand, it stands to reason that animals can be consumed, because generally speaking, it is safe to do so.

I call shenanigans- Yale students don't pay for their tuition.

That's what trust funds are for.

A recent sex study that just came out showed that a little over 50% of heterosexual females are into or aroused by bestiality and having sex with animals.  Statistically speaking, if you see a woman that owns a male dog, she is having sex with it.

you have pee hands: Lumpmoose: Am I supposed to clutch my pearls?  Did anyone honestly think that "Ivy League material" somehow skewed the sex/kink percentages you'd find in the rest of the population?

One in 11 people in the general population has been paid for sex?  One in 33 has farked a literal animal?

I'm way more of a prude than I thought.


It doesn't count if you can't get it.

Does a dog sniffing my crotch count? Would it still count if I didn't enjoy it?

The students chose to attend a workshop run by a sex shop owner--it was a very self-selecting group.  My point is it's not surprising to find such people at Yale or anywhere else.  They're just the ones brave enough to say what they really want.


This.  These percentages are crap because of this simple fact.

Please, if you really think about it who has not been paid for sex at some point?

Fark_Guy_Rob: Additionally, if any of the students were pre-veterinary or veterinary students, a part of most curriculums would place them well into the bestiality category.  I remember when my wife had to 'collect' (extract semen from) horses interning on a horse farm.  I swear, if they'd have just worn bikinis, I could have filmed it and made a ton of money selling access to the site.


Strong arms?
