Therian calls Loveline; describes erotic side of furry
The caller, "Cly" [spelling uncertain], said the community includes therians (who "believe that their spirits used to be animals, and thus they keep acting like animals"), "normal" furries ("people who pick an animal who they really like and act like it") and fursuiters. She claimed to be all three.
Cly went on to confirm the existence of "erotic fursuits" with "appropriate holes"; while explaining that these were not essential for her, she admitted to liking furry porn – which she described as drawings of anthropomorphic animals – and to being unable to "get off" on human porn.
When hosts suggested her furriness might be a hobby ("just something for fun"), Cly demurred, suggesting it was "a trait that you're born with." She said that furriness had helped her work through mental issues originating from her mother, and that she had been "wolf-like my entire life."
When asked if she would like to become a wolf, Cly agreed enthusiastically:
Host: Cly, let me ask you this, and be honest with me, OK.
Host: If I had some magic lamp that could turn you into a wolf, would you do it?
Host: See, that's what I'm saying, Dr. Bruce – it's not just some little hobby.
Dr. Bruce: Yeah, it's a little more deep-seated – no, it's not.
Cly: No, see, I would love to be turned into a wolf, because I would have a tail that I could chase!
In response to a previous caller – who had apparently described a furpile as "furry group sex" – Cly explained that while this term could be used to describe such activities, they were "usually called a 'yiff-pile'." She also noted that, despite what had been suggested, furries don't try to get others to participate in their activities: "you're either born one or you're not one, there's no recruiting."
The hosts suggested it was "not just fun and games," and that Cly might have underling issues for which she should consider seeking therapy.
