If animal to animal prostitution is okay, why not human to animal?!


More precisely, chimp to chimp. Inter-species examples would be more relevant.

"...things I have neither seen nor experienced nor heard tell of from anybody else; things, what is more, that do not in fact exist and could not ever exist at all. So my readers must not believe a word I say." -Lucian on his book True History

"...They accept such things on faith alone, without any evidence. So if a fraudulent and cunning person who knows how to take advantage of a situation comes among them, he can make himself rich in a short time." -Lucian critical of early Christians c.166 AD From his book, De Morte Peregrini

Hoo boy. I had hoped to avoid commenting on this one.

There are some species that should not mate. For instance, humans and chickens. In cases where the animal is harmed during the sex act (woof means woof!), it should absolutely be banned. It is a form of animal torture and maiming (even in the states, food animals must be dispatched humanely).

Some guy with cows or pigs that are large enough to accept the coupling without pain to the animal. I don't care. I don't want to hear about it, either. Unless the object of their affection drop kicks them into the next state. Then it's funny. (Neigh means neigh!)

Thanks for the replies everyone.

By the way, welcome to the SFN, MisterMaggot. What sorts of rights do you advocate we should confer to animals?


I think bestiality is compatible with basic animal rights, such as the right not to be physically harmed. I think animals can use body language to consent to sex, the most obvious being a dog attempting to mount a human. There would need to be legislation prohibiting the restraining of animals during sex as this would prevent them from expressing there non-consent i.e. walking away, kicking etc.

MisterMaggot, I was actually asking you about those "basic animal rights," not just the sex stuff.
