"Dirty Little Secrets: Furries"

Here is an article, dated February 23, from The Lumberjack, the student newspaper of Humboldt State University (California, U.S.A.)

The article is a very brief one, the opener of a series on "sexual acts and cultures that are thought of as "odd"." The start isn't too bad...

One of the biggest misconceptions about furries is that they're hypersexual people that can only orgasm in an animal suit. The second is that the subculture is somehow linked to bestiality. In reality, the furry culture is not exclusively about sex and, while the acts seem similar, many furries are put off by the idea of sex with an actual animal.

...though I hope that "many" is really "most".

The article goes on to talk about totemism and "furry lifestyle", and defines various words (fursona, furpile, skritching, yiff).
