At the same time... some of you might be into vore and - frankly - that shit is messed up. You know what I'm talking about, right? Vore is described as "the erotic desire to be consumed by, or sometimes to personally consume, another person or creature - usually whole".
Due to the somewhat impractical nature of vore, this fetish is typically expressed in stories or pictures - often crossing over with so-called "furry" fetishism. Consequently, the Sonic The Hedgehog universe, with its anthropomorphic animals, is regularly used as the subject of vore-based art - and here are ten such examples.
Be warned; this is a deep dive into one of the most unusual sexual fetisihes there is. Each to their own.
One case study suggested that voraphilia is "motivated by a desire to merge with a powerful other or permanently escape loneliness."
On one occasion, "he reported feeling traumatized and distraught about an unexpected negative event: To cope with those feelings, he went into the woods and masturbated while eating cow feces."
"He had designed a facsimile of an oven from a cardboard box, including rudimentary knobs and a door that could be opened and closed. He would lie down in this box, on his back, wearing only socks, while the dominatrix would describe in great detail the process of his body being cooked and eaten by her."
Some forms of vore see the victim being ingested through the sexual organs, anus or nipples.
During their date, Meiwes removed and ate Brande's penis, before stabbing him to death, slowly consuming 20kg of his body over the several months.
Meiwes was only caught when he was overheard boasting about his crime. After receiving an eight-year prison sentence for manslaughter, psychiatrists stated that - despite his sexual fetish - Meiwes wasn't mentally ill, and otherwise seemed like a normal human being. Albeit one who "could only experience
attachment when the other person was inside of him.
"Even extremely experienced police officers, who could not believe what he had done, had to put on record that, if they had not known about the offence, Armin M. never offered anything conspicuous during the entire period of investigation.”
"The predator (I'll write "pred" from now on) is really fond to the prey, and the prey too; the two could be in love or not, maybe just friends, but love is important.
"Now, when I say I'd like to be eaten by you, I mean that I'm so fond to you, I trust you so much that the only place where I can feel safe is inside of you, since I KNOW, I know you won't hurt me, I know you will take care of me, I know you will make pleasant my permanence inside of you.
"On the other side, the predator loves the prey so much that he wants to protect her, to keep her in a safe place, which is the pred himself. That's the point: the pred makes himself a shelter for his beloved prey. Even when the prey may be just tired, sad, angry, stressed: the pred will always be there to protect her and cheer her up. You can see that, in this case, Vore is non-fatal and mostly willing, though an unwilling situation could be really funny."
One said: "I first realised that I was into it back in primary school. I remember wanting to be eaten by my teacher."
Another added: "There was one movie, in particular, I remember, The Great Mouse Detective. At one point a mouse (anthropomorphic) is swallowed whole by a large cat. I'd say that was probably what first caused an interest in vore, though obviously I had no word to describe it, nor was I even conscientious of it as a kink."
A Russian contributor revealed: "I realised I was into vore when I played Heart of Darkness on PlayStation 1. There is a lot of vorish death scenes in this game. The Mefudoka one is my favourite."
