I Mastrubate With Mysister

furry culture

Furry (engl. pelzartig, mit Pelz besetzt oder mit Pelz bekleidet) ist der Sammelbegriff für eine internationale Interessen-Gruppierung, die an anthropomorphen Tieren in Schrift, Bild und Ton interessiert ist. Dies reicht vom typischen Werwolf bis hin zu tierischen Cartoon- und Comicfiguren. Die meisten Mitglieder der Gruppierung stammen aus den USA, Japan, Großbritannien und Deutschland.

Das Wort furry is needed in the use of language both as a noun and an adjective. Fans refer to themselves as furries or furs furry fans.

known examples

The most common definition of furry includes well-known cartoon characters such as Roger Rabbit, Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse, who distinguish themselves by their anthropomorphic appearance and behavior. Comic-like exaggeration and humorous elements generally fall outside the concept of him but are not invalidated.

Other examples of anthropomorphic characters in modern media are the animals of Redwall, Usagi Yojimbo, Omaha the Cat Dancer, Fritz the Cat, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (although turtles kein Fell haben) und die Charaktere der in Furry-Kreisen beliebten, mittlerweile abgesetzten US-amerikanischen Fernsehserie Father of the Pride. Hierbei handelt es sich um Wesen, die realistischer dargestellt werden als Comicfiguren. Auch beliebt bei Furries ist der Anime-Film Bagi, in dem die Hauptdarstellerin eine genetisch veränderte Berglöwin ist, die menschlichen Verstand und eindeutig anthropomorphe Züge hat.

Auch Charaktere mit tierischem Körper und einem menschlichen Verstand sowie Fabelwesen wie Drachen und Greifen werden gemeinhin als furry bezeichnet. Somit schließt der Begriff furry auch alle klassischen Fabeln mit ein. Auch Echsen und Dinosaurier wie in Jurassic Park oder Godzilla haben Anhänger unter den Furries. Meist are being referred to as dandruff Scalies. has

attitudes and interests

A significant part of Furry-interested, like the Star Trek fan base, the furry being elevated to a philosophy of life, of course often an animal in man, following spiritual / shamanistic values or lovers of erotic depictions of anthropomorphic beings. Many media reports sexual themes to be addressed, while furries argue that this play a minor role. In most of such reports often fursuit themed sexual acts are by design limited.

Within the group, one speaks of the Furry Fandom, a fan base for anthropomorphic works of all kinds. This holds because of the often great distance from one another mainly using the internet. Larger meetings are called conventions, such as the annual Eurofurence. This move by far not all fans, but achieve in Europe hundreds (Eurofurence 13 (2007) with more than 600 visitors), the United States thousands of visitors (Anthrocon 2009 with 3776 visits).

In the scene has a "Furry Code" established, which is basically like the Geekcode established. The code is a sequence of characters, each of which has a certain strictly defined meaning. Share with the Furry Code Fans on their attitudes and interests.

in Art Furry

Many furries its colorful fantasy world also give artistic expression in all its forms.

The main interest of most furries here is graphic works that are found in such online archives such as Yerf, Fur Affinity, deviantART, Sheezy Art, SoFurry or VCL (Vixen Controlled Library).

There are thousands of more or less professional artists who distribute their images for free on the Internet or print and sell. Many independent Furry Webcomics revolve around issues or include appropriate anthropomorphic characters, such as "Sabrina Online" by American Artist Eric W. Schwartz 'VG Cats' Scott Ramsoomair.

Furthermore, there is a strong culture of story-writing, with the area of light rather extends to entire fan fiction novels with literary depth. The proliferation of such stories continued until the 1990s, still mainly through fanzines, nowadays mainly via the Internet. An example of an attempt of a German fanzines outside of the Internet is "Fur Fiction, an anthology of short stories, published by Helge Lange published edition Solar-X. They based this standard on the topic, published in 1985 East German book "From the Diary of an ant (Scientific-fantastic Tiergeschichten)" (Hrsg. u. mit einem Vorwort von Michael Szameit, Verlag Neues Leben, Berlin 1985)

Das Thema des aufrecht gehenden Tieres hat darüber hinaus auch zum Anfertigen von Kostümen mit anthropomorphem Aussehen geführt; in der Szene als Fursuit bezeichnet. Einige Erschaffer solcher Fursuits setzen ihre Fähigkeiten auch kommerziell ein und produzieren für Firmen und Vereine, in denen sie etwa als Maskottchen eingesetzt werden.

In der Vergangenheit waren Furries mehrfach an Filmen oder Computerspielen beteiligt, was in jüngster Zeit eine gewisse Fortsetzung in der 3D-Animation gefunden hat. Ein Beispiel für den Einfluss der Subkultur Furry ist das 1994 erschienene Erben der Erde oder der 3D Animationsfilm Kaze - Ghost Warrior by Timothy Albee.

development of the German Furry fandom Furry

The phenomenon began in the United States and Germany reached a large scale in the mid-1990s. Unlike the U.S., in Germany there is no clear fanzine culture.

in December 1994 in a Usenet posting was first mentioned in the Furry Convention "Eurofurence. She found for the first time in June 1995 in Kaiser-Wilhelm-Koog and then had 19 participants. The event takes place annually since then at different places in Europe and has become the largest European Furry Con. In 2001, the first time by over 200 people, 2007, it 585 and 2010 already 973 people.

in April 1998 launched the first mini Mephit Con (MMC) as a small meeting in an apartment in Rüsselsheim. It takes place annually ever since with ever-increasing number of participants (most recently about 200 people). In 1999, moved to the Falcon youth center in Seeheim, from 2002 to 2005 at the Loreley. Since 2006 the MMC instead of the Freusburg.

In December 2002, showed the Tracks ARTE broadcast a report about the American furry fandom. That there are furries in Germany, was not mentioned in the report. The broadcast on 15 March 2008 showed German Furs on a French festival.

In May 2005, under the ARD program Polylux first shown a television report about the German Furry fandom.

Currently, the size of the German Furry fandom to 3000-4000 members (not many in the fandom) is estimated.


The anthropomorphic animal costumes are the best of the public perceived - as visually striking - part of the furry subculture. These vary from simple masks, false tails, ears, etc., to elaborate costumes and animatronics (eg moving parts). The word "fursuit" means fur-coat-dress suit or translated. Nevertheless, make fursuiter are only a small minority of the furry subculture, an online survey zufolge etwa 15%.

Fursuits werden überwiegend als Einzelstück individuell geplant und gebaut (meist vom Träger selbst), da industriell hergestellte Kostüme den individuellen Ansprüchen nicht gerecht werden. Die Ausstattung variiert je nach geplantem Einsatzgebiet, etwa was Robustheit, Funktionen und Sichtfeld angeht.

Das Tragen der Fursuits wird im deutschsprachigen Raum häufig als Performance-Kunst verstanden. Abseits von Furry-Conventions wie der Eurofurence treten Fursuiter auch im öffentlichen Raum in Erscheinung; sei es als Teil von Paraden oder Umzügen, oder auch in speziellen Aktionen („Suitwalks“).

Spirituelle Hintergründe (der Fursuiter möchte its attachment to a specific species or alter-ego to express), role playing (LARP) or just a fascination for the technical challenge can also be an opportunity to build a fursuit and carry. The professional respect of furries fursuit to - such as mascots or theme parks - in Europe is rather insignificant.
