Featured Fetish: Furries



Featured Fetish time!!!
Furries. Probably THE most common internet fetish. Now, I made the decision to portray furries more as they see themselves than as they look in real life scenarios. Primarily because it's just more fun to draw that way. :)

We personally never had any furry fetishists in the dungeon but that's not to say they couldn't have roleplayed with us, there. Just to be clear for those of you who don't know (and I suspect you ALL do) furries are people who roleplay as an anthropomorphic half-human, half-animal creature. Some furries actually believe they have animal "spirits" and whatnot or that they should have been born into a certain animal's body.

As with most major fetishes there are TONS of subcatagories to the furries. There are fur-suiters (the people who dress up in elaborate outfits of their characters) and the plushifiles (the people who have sex with stuffed animals) and baby furs or cubs (the people who combine their furry persona or fursona with infintailism or adult baby fetishes.)

And the list goes ON and ON.
The characters can be anywhere from a simple wolf to a winged tauren leopard koala fox with bright green spots. You get the picture.

The lingo and subtypes are far and wide and if you're here on the net I'm sure you've seen and heard most of it, it's too much for me to cover here. But, I hope you all enjoy the little pin-up! I just made some random characters up for fun.

Now, in the news of my LIFE.
So, Sharky and I broke it off, I am now a single lady!!!
No worries, we're staying friends. HOWEVER, I am looking to move out and would REALLY like to get my own studio dungeon. It's expensive to live here in LA and so I'm hoping you guys will take an extra look at my store and/or donation button or think of commissioning me! I'll post more details about such in the future.

My life is turning into a country song! Lost my dungeon, lost my friend, lost my lover and lost my home. Curses! But at least I still have the comic. It's SOMETHING to keep me going.

Ok, great for furry fetish, i'm a furry sometimes too (many more in Second Life). Really sad for your love story :(
A suggestion, have you thinked to join whit other girls for create a personal dungeon?

Nic said...

I don't really trust the other girls financial standing for now but if I could get my own dungeon where I could live AND work AND rent it to the girls currently without a place to play then it would be win/win/win. :)

Ivan said...

I am really sorry about Sharky and you. Let's just hope for the best.
To be honest I don't like furry fetish, but have you uploaded something of traditional shibari? Maybe with a kimono costume in a traditional japanese backgrund :) Just a little idea.
Regards from Argentina!

Nic said...

Ivan, I have not had a shibari fetish request yet, I'll add it to the queue!

Hikori said...

hell yeah~ Btw, i'm a furry =P side note fursuiters are often recognized as a mostly seperate things... however they tend to be very vocal in the fur community. however all that asside-


I respect anyone willing to suit up. I used to be a mascot, just standing around in those suits for 15 minutes is hard, it's hard to imagine sex being pleasant in them XD even in cold weather i had to take it off, and i was still hot.

But that was years ago. Sorry about sharky, but i'm glad to hear it ended with you two being friends. Also, your dungeon/home idea sounds awesomeness. I hope it all works out hon >x<

Hikori- the spotted husky =P

Ps. interestng/uninteresting furry funfact. being a furry and having a furry fetish are two completely different things. Just most people who are furries have furry fetishes =P You can be a furry and be completely innocent =P

Hikori said...

oh sorry to post again in the same place, but i wanted to add, i knew people who drew furry art, but weren't furries. chuck jones for one, and a few others. =P they did it because they felt the animals can accent personalities. othertimes just because it was silly =P

Alot of people are furries for the silliness alone =D

akonite said...

furries tend to be sweethearts more interested in cuddling than yiffing. Not my kink but then again I'm a masquerade fetishist which I guess is simplified into costumes but I'm more into the masks than the outfits highlighting them.

Happy to hear you're still friends. Have you considered Phoenix, AZ or other Arizona cities? It's cheaper than LA, large and varied fetish community, not a bad commute from Southern California.

Saira said...

^_^I used to be involved w/ furry, but it was not really my thing so I left.

Be warned. Furries don't consider what they are a fetish, so you might get hate in here from the ones who can't deal with people thinking differently.

Anna said...

I think it's sad that furries get such a bad rap. :( The xkcd strip about furries sums it up well for me.

Do you have doctor fetishes on your queue for featured fetish? I'd like to see some doctor/patient play going on. :)

Anonymous said...

I'm a fursuiter, but I'm totally innocent as mentioned above! XD I'm into the biggest portion of all things bondage (not big on any pain sides spanking) but my furry life is completly independant of that and I've got no intrest in combining the two since Furry is just a way to get out and play as a totally different person... er... creature. =)

Crud... have you done a gender-play feature? I'm thinking, but I can't remember for the life of me... What about sensory deprivation? I know that's one of MY favorites~!

Your comic is amazing, I stayed up a long time past my normal sleeping hours just to read. You're humor kills me, and I kept irritating my cats with hysterical laughter. Thank you for making me laugh, it makes all my own personal troubles melt away for a while...

You've also convinced me to give electro play a try, so thank you! Don't worry, my partner and I are very, very safty consious and we'll start out very vanilla! XD

Evals Pup said...

I'm a furrie as well :) and I have been for near 12 years now, but I'm still not a suiter though. Not many furs are, being how they can cost 300-3000$. Most suits aren't just generic characters, furries always make their own, which is why this persona means so much to them. I like to think furrie itself isn't a fetish and just includes kinky (sometimes very kinky) people, but to each their own.

I'm sorry to hear about the break up, but I'm sure it was for good reason. At least it was over mutal agreement and not something tragic. I wish you the best :)

Vera Wylde said...

Wow... where do I even start with this one? Well first off I'm sorry to hear about the split but it seems like it was done on good terms so kudos there. You're definitely right about furries being an insanely wide ranging category, it's about as broad as all the various things gay or straight people might be into.

While I'm not able to dontate anytime soon (trying to buy a house) I did get the t-shirt I ordered. If I'd known you were going to write a personalized "thank you" on the box I wouldn't have addressed it to my boy name... oh well, next time. I do plan to do a little mini-shoot featuring the shirt this weekend. It should go up on DA, Flickr and my blog in a few days and I'll be sure to link back to you. Stay strong girl!

tom said...

I dunno, i really don't know about many country singers who have dungeons...

Kate said...

Okay well first things first, SO sorry to hear about your love life! :( Glad you are ok, both of you. Second, LOVE this comic, yay furries! I love to draw them but not as a fetish. Just for innocent fun. My fiance often playfully gives me shit for it lol. And fetish idea: Erotic asphyxia!

Madame Daisy said...

Sorry to hear about Sharky and the rest of your Country Song life... I hope things pick up soon~
By the way, I was wondering when you'd do furrys... The picture's adorable!! ^w^
Have you gotten a balloon fetish request yet, by the way? Balloons are amazingly fun...

Piratestan said...

"Hello, my name is John Smith, and I am a furry."

(hi john)

"It has been two weeks since I last fur-suited."

(congratulations)...

Nic said...

Wowee, holy comments Batman!

Okays, first, to the collective, I just wanna be clear to you all that I don't pick the Featured Fetishes. I let you all request them. So I didn't pick this cuz I think it's a fetish or whatever else, I drew it because somebody requested it be a Featured Fetish. *shrug* I didn't really think "big boobs" qualified as a fetish and I still did that one, and many of you disagree with me on that, too, btw!

Aaaannnnyway. Just wanted to be clear.
Now...

Akonite, I'm hoping to not only stay in SoCal but to stay in the LA area if at all possible. I'm open to returning to the OC, as well but no further than that.

Anna, I do not have a doctors fetish requested yet! I will add it to the list. :)

Anon, I DO have forced femme in there and have "tranny chaser" coming up but no, so far no sensory dep requests! Now it's scheduled. :D

Vera, Oh noooooo! I wish I'd known it was you! Oh well, I can't wait to see you in the shirt! I suspect you'll do it great justice! :D

Tom, Then I will be the first! ;)

Kate, Erotic Asphix added up to the list of FFs! :)

Daisy, Balloon added as well! I love those videos, they crack me up, I admit.

FireFlyNexes said...

I was just wondering if Furries had been requested yet, I check in today and here it is :3

As for the brake up, I would like to say congratulations. not because of the brake up but for staying friends, I've seen way too many friends have horrible breakups that destroyed what was once a good friendship.

Your Country song life, just gave me an idea for another possible featured fetish request. Cowgirl fetish, though it may just fall under costume play or something of that nature.

Nic said...

I have a thing for cowgirls, actually!

Buuuuuuuut wait. I need you to be specific...
Do you mean boots, ten gallon hats, spats and spurs kinda cowgirl...?
Or do you mean white with black spots and udders kinda cowgirl? :P

I like both. ^_^

Hikori said...

oooh cowgirls OxO I got a stock of pics i can share of those >x<

classyvulpine said...

Aww that is crazy cute. I'm a furry but not a yiffing sex in a fur suit furry or a zoophile all the weird sexual cases that make other furrys look bad. I love fursuits but seriously sex gets messy and fursuits are hella 'spensive not worth damaging the fur.

I had to clear up the notion of furries for a person writing a book on sexual fetishes because it is so incredibly vast it's crazy. Basically I think furries are like trekkies. Do some trekkies have klingon weddings and shag in their command uniforms sure but not all.

Seriously thought those characters are so cute. I've been reading since the beginning so it's nice to see this come up. :D

So sorry for all the recent loss in your life. I do hope you find a nice new place soon.

FireFlyNexes said...

Yes I did mean the big hats, spur, and rope welding Cowgirls. ;)

Anonymous said...

Dear god there are a lot of furries who read this! Surprised, but it's not a bad thing at all. I don't consider myself a full-fledged furry, but I enjoy a gayfur comic now and then.

Sorry to hear about you and Sharky ending it, it's nice you are able to stay friends though. Your life has been pretty hard lately, I hope things start looking up soon.

Tilaurin said...

Damn you're havign a time of it, hang in there kiddo!

Evals Pup said...

Well aren't you going to name your creations? :) That's generally how it goes. Especially if the red one is a chakat.

Anonymous said...

I think that's a foxtaur, not a chakat.

Samuel said...

Actually, it's kinda hard to tell. Those two are the most generic furries I've ever seen. Of course, maybe Nic was trying to make them not look like any particular creatures.

Evals Pup said...

I agree with you Samuel, but I see a lot of kitty in that taur. So I'm going to say it's a chakat until I see a underside ;) It's a really cute drawing.

Raine said...

Aww Nic, that fucking blows. I'm sorry :( *Hugs*

Featured Fetish requests: Dollification and needle play?

joel said...

If you ever need any advice on opening up your own business give me a shout.

And if I was still in SanD and not in South Korea teaching I would let you crash on the couch for a night or two. Hope things progress better than the past month.

Nic said...

I might be skipping responding to some of you because I'm tired but I DID want the characters to be pretty generic, since I'm trying to cover a huge catagory. I just made them up and tried to go for something cute and familiar.

And Raine, we've had needle play requested so it's already in line but I'm adding Dollification to the list. :)

Raine said...

Thanks Darlin' :)

Finally caught up today, first comic I've seen of a dungeon mistress! I'm secretly hoping to be one someday<3 I'm sorry to hear about your loss at PAS :( My condolences to you. I'm glad you and Sharky are staying friends, he seems like a totally nice guy! I'm from up in the Bay Area, maybe I'll bump into you down there in LA one day :D Good luck in finding your new place and keep up the wonderful comics!

- M.E.

Ps- love the fetish pics!

Pepe said...

I'm totally in love with your comic. <3
I would like to think of myself of a dom; but 'm probably not... I just like to be over my partner's in every since of the word. :P
I think I would very much like to work at a dungeon. Seems like the place for me; and I need to find a way to pay for college. Two birds with one stone, anyone?
So~ If you move closer to Texas, I'll defiantly want to work for you. I'll even be your own cowgirl. <3

Furry Here! http://www.furaffinity.net/user/xuncu/

Well, we did a study once: about only 15% actually fursuit... but the stereotype that we're mostly bisexual is true. Unless you consider that humans are inherently mildly bisexual (and mildly polyamorous), in which case: we're more honest.

Spirit animal thing; both religious types, and "Otherkin"/self-proclaimed werewolves, yes we have those. Including Jesus Christ as a Lion, in a Car. 0>:3
I'm an Atheist, so are many other furs, so I have fun calling them out on that level.
Then why are you a furry? Cuz it's fun, of course. A big chunk of us are artists; entertainers and storytellers.

Anonymous said...

NOOOOO I LOVE SHARKY!!!!

WAAAAAA!!! :'(

Nic said...

Aw, me too, Anon, but don't worry we're still friends and I'm sure he'll still be popping up in the comic from time to time! :)

Josh said...

Ah, yes, Furries... the token scapegoat/hate-target fetish of the Internet...

I never could understand why they get singled-out when, as your comic proves, there's fetishes and lifestyles WAY weirder than liking cartoon animal titties...

John (yes, that is my real name! LOL) said...

I think the closest I've ever gotten to being a furry is having a crush on Cheetara from the old Thundercats cartoon. :D

nekoMimi Loli said...

Sooooo much love for you for this ^_^ the only thing that could make it better is for there to be a baby fur in the pic

Oh my goodness. Wow... Reading about your relationship with Sharky through this comic was like watching a romance movie. Yarns and yarns about his epicness and finally this blog... sadness! Granted, there wasn't much information to be had, but, le-sigh.

Boomer Gonzales said...

This is a fetish? Like an honest to goodness bonafide fetish? I always though it was a cosplay activity.

And that explains sooo much. -.-

I made a marmoset outfit, but have gear to combine it with a Doc Brown costume. I even made a pair of Doc Brown shades out of some sheet metal and the visor from a pair of ski goggles. I always wondered why I was getting felt up at sci-fi cons.

Bibliotheque said...

Aw, Sharky was cute. If it was for the best, congratulations. If it wasn't something you wanted to happen, sympathies. Maybe both.

Not commenting on the entirety of the subject (aside from, "I've never seen the attraction of cow-style udders, but don't have anything against those who like them"), it's so refreshing that you decided to put a centaurid into your Furries fetish update, and a non-hoofed one at that! I find them to be lacking in what I've seen of the furry fandom (DMFA being a rare popular furry comic to include them).

Anon: Jesus-lion driving a car? I hope Aslan had time to get his driver's license while he was in England!
