Fur-suiting and the furry community tend to be conflated in the popular press, but research by the International Anthropomorphic Research Project, which studies the furry fandom, suggests fur-suiters are a minority of that community.

A survey found that only A survey found that tails are the most commonly owned fur-suit componentwith Only 13 percent reported owning a full suit, while No, though, like with any other fan interest video games, comics, etc. While sexual activity with other furries known as "yiffing," after the sound foxes make during sex is part of the subculture for some, others maintain a non-erotic interest in the subject.

For one thing, only a small minority of furries own full fur suits. A survey at Furry Fiesta found that But they also reported that most of their involvement in the fandom was non-sexual. Men reported spending 34 percent of their online roleplaying time on sexual content, and women reported spending only Nearly half of male furries, and a large majority of women, reported that sexual content played little or no role in their introduction to the fandom:.

International Anthropomorphic Research Project. In the broadest sense, a furry is someone with an interest in anthropomorphized animals — that is, animals who have been given human characteristics, like an fury fetish to talk or walk on their hind legs. Courtney "Nuka" Plante, a social psychologist at the University of Waterloo and member of the Anthropomorphic Research Project team, analogizes furries to other fan groups, like comic book enthusiasts or Trekkers.

A fursona inspired by The Lion King Nala A fursona is a " furry-themed avatar " which furries use "to represent themselves when interacting with other members of the fandom," according to a recent paper by social psychologist Plante and fellow Anthropomorphic Research Project members Dr. Sharon Roberts, Dr. Stephen Reysen, and Dr. Kathy Gerbasi. Crafting a fursona involves picking an animal — real or mythical — to represent yourself as, or, less commonly, deing a new mythical animal for yourself.

Fursonas typically have names and are often the inspiration for artwork or fiction, but the degree of investment in them can vary. Of course! In addition to visual artists and fiction writers, many furries are accomplished musicians who create work with furry themes or otherwise fury fetish their musical interests into their fandom. Here's Bucktown Tiger, a furry pianist, performing a movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata at Anthrocon, the world's largest furry convention held in Pittsburgh every year, in You can divide furry fan activities into online fandom and furry conventions.

In each case, the analogy to science fiction and comic book fandoms is strong. Fan art is an important part of furry fandom, just as it is for comic book fans. A synthesis from the Anthropomorphic Research Project, looking at several surveys conducted online and in various conventions, found that the vast majority of the most popular furry sites are art-related. Many of those sites — like FurAffinity and SoFurry — also host furry-related fiction and music, and provide forums for fan discussion and community-building.

Conventions — which Plante says about half of furries attend on an annual or semiannual basis — create an in-real-life space for furries, many if not most of whom have met online, to hang out, and they also provide a way to talk to artists who are popular within the fandom. This is similar to how events like Comic Con let people talk to favorite movie directors and actors and comic artists. But for others, meeting JJ Abrams or meeting the voice actors from your favorite show is very meaningful.

Like fans in other communities, furries often report being bullied or fury fetish in the past.

No, but they're not totally disconnected either. Bronies share one basic commonality with furries: they're interested in anthropomorphized representations of animals. The survey synthesis found that nearly a quarter This wasn't the result of a brony "invasion" of furrydom, the fury fetish, but rather a development of interest in the show by pre-existing furries. About half of furries consider bronies a subgroup of furrydom; another 28 percent say they're related but not a subset, and 22 percent say there's no connection at all.

There's a substantial degree of enmity toward bronies among furries as a whole, with 38 percent expressing negative views toward them compared to 36 percent reporting positive feelings and 26 percent reporting indifference. Interestingly, there were very few demographic differences between the furry and brony fandoms.

The survey synthesis estimated that A majority were atheist Convention attendees were a bit older 24 to Perhaps reflecting that, only 3. Furries don't make ificantly more or less money than the general US public and tend to be ificantly more left-leaning politically. And they're much likelier than the public at large to report a non-straight sexual orientation, with well under 30 percent reporting exclusive heterosexuality:. A later study, conducted in early July at Anthroconfound that almost 90 percent of respondents identified as white.

It's complicated. About one in three furries report feeling not percent human. A small fraction 8 to 14 percent report meaning this in a physical sense, with many more stating they feel not fully human mentally or spiritually. About 38 to 53 percent report a desire to be 0 percent human, if they could be. Furries and other people who identify as non-human in some substantial degree are known as "otherkin.

Some reserve the term otherkin for those identifying as fictional or fantastical creatures dragons, vampires, etc. Some researchers have suggested that the existence of otherkin and therians suggest these people could have a "Species Identity Disorder," modeled after "Gender Identity Disorder," which is used by psychiatrists to classify trans people. Many trans people argue that the classification of gender dysmorphia as a disorder is stigmatizing and counterproductive.
