All fandoms have a sexual component? Yes, yes they do. And this is the PG version by the way. Google is a cruel being when it comes to popping up the really graphic stuff, careful what you search for kids.

I suspect that furries are going to be our version of Imperial Rome's orgies or the victorian age's weird compartmentalization of sex away from all other forms of social interaction -- sure, it's just a minority of statistical outliers that go full retard on the practice with fursonas and animal-soul mysticism crap, but it's going to be the thing that shows up in every damned historical drama about the early information age in another century.

// The fact that it mixes in a cartoonishly exaggerated version of our favorite cultural woo, identity politics, is only going to make it worse, as furry bullshiat will be an easy cartoon illustration of how stupid identity politics can get in the same way the weird courtship rules neatly illustrates the victorian age's obsession with social status and ettiquette, actually widespread or not.

That clown has been waiting all his adult life to use that "bear chested" pun.
I'm pretty sure his existence is going to go downhill from here.

Well, some fandoms more than others. I would assume that more boinking is going on betwixt Goreans than members of the HP Lovecraft Historical Society. Or Trainspotters.

I don't think I belong to a 'fandom'.  I mean I like things, but fandom seems to imply obsession.

Of course all fandoms have a sexual component. They're just not all so creepy and weird.

A friend of mine and his ex-wife (with her full consent) always wanted to go to the Darkover convention
with him dressed as a Gorean slave trader and her as his slave girl.  Alas, they never got around to it,
but I'm sure it would have gone over REALLY well in that crowd.

/Furries are not sex fiends, but I'm sure we all know that.

Good point. Fandom is creepy enough as is, regardless of any sexual component.

I had heard that.  I've also heard that at one time in SF literary circles you couldn't consider yourself to
have 'made it' until you'd ghost written at least one Gor novel. Including, legendarily, Marion Zimmer Bradley.

odd, I read some of the Gor books, never really had much of an impact.  I am somewhat surprised there is a whole Gorean thing.  I guess I shouldn't be . . . but there you are.

Some people collect coins. Or stamps.

The number of people for whom that has a sexual component is a number I can only imagine as being extremely small, even relatively speaking.

I'm sure there are a few that get at least a half-chub thinking about an Inverted Jenny or a 1943 copper penny.

Alas I too know about the farking Goreans.  Everything's fun when its a Safe Sane Consensual game but I'm convinced a lot of these sick assholes are just raging misogynists who genuinely believe women should be slaves... and have found some poor women with low self esteem who like their spousal abuse flavored with swords and sandals.

Egoy3k: I don't think I belong to a 'fandom'.  I mean I like things, but fandom seems to imply obsession.


And you've nailed why, despite being pretty geeky, I never fit in with "fandom".  I've been to some con's that were fun but if your only topic of conversation is spittle mouthed explanations of the intricacies of your favorite anime, or you can name twenty Star Wars planets but not your MP... Yeah we ain't gonna get along.

It's what happens when BDSM and Sci-fi nerds meet. Over- ritualized, musclebound D/s - the rules alone would fill a small paperback. Never took a shine, myself, but the subbies seem really into the mystique of the thing. I found the whole thing a little bombastic.

Well, if you're force sensitive you may want to take up residence on an underpopulated planet in an underutilized star system, like Dagobah
