    Is zoophilia more common than people think?

    Zoophilia is something I've been into and interested in ever since I was a young teenager. When I was 18 I started talking to women more, and in the past 5 years have been with 3 women. All of which who have been into zoophilia in some way or another. The first girl lied about it at first. Said she had stumbled across that sort of porn by mistake when she was online once but didn't like. As our relationship grew deeper though, the truth came out about her interest in zoophilia. The other two girls I was with, were much more open about it though. Every time I heard that they were a zoophile shocked me. I had always thought nobody else had this interest, and that I was the weird one for liking it. What are your experiences when it comes to learning people you know are also zoophiles? Do you think zoophilia is a lot more common than the average person seems to believe?

    Individual anecdotes don't override the general statistics - which are also hard to gather for nobody studies this and people might lie etc.

    In another topic we speculated on the numbers and i personally figure zoos are 0.1% to 0.01% of the populace. Maybe up to 10% of all people had sex with an animal at least once and maybe 50% of everyone might be able to enjoy a horsecock-sucking vid alone and in private. - which doesn't mean they watch it all the time, but they could go of to it.

      I tend to agree with the magnitude of your estimation. .01% would be about 35,000 in the US. My rough guess is something like 10-20,000 (admittedly the qualifications for zoophile are highly arbitrary; I’m basing this on my own notion of who I think it refers to. This is a major part of the annoyance I feel at statements like ‘they call themselves “zoos”, and they’re far more common than you think.’ The other part of the annoyance being the presumption of what a given reader thinks about anything, including how common zoophilia is).

      Even at only .01 percent that still comes out to a lot of millions when you think about how many trillions of people are on the planet

    I definitely think that it is more common than people think, its such a touchy subject so most of the people (at least the ones that i am friends/partners with) tend to skirt it either bringing it up when someone or something can be the scapegoat for the blame if it goes south ei. alcohol, drugs, waiting for someone else to bring the subject up. As to not have it possibly cause a rift between the people. When I was a teen I had a girlfriend of four years and through that entire relationship I suppressed it knowing of her disdain and hatred towards zoos viewing them with the normal animal abusing mindset that bigots have. As I meet more and more people typically in the age group of 18 to early 30's their is a lot more acceptance. All of my four partners are accepting of zoophilia, each owning their own animals (namely dogs, and horses) some physical and emotionally binding to them and others simply seeking companionship but able to attain more. It took me nearly two of the nearly five years for my first relationship to bring up the subject and it became almost like a trust staple for the rest of them. I tend not to get into another relationship or extend partnership to anyone else unless I know they are zoo friendly which is surprisingly and amazingly common! : D

    i would go into more specific details on my experiences with all my partners and what happened at the times that we talked about it but i want their consent first and dont wanna flood this board with a three billion word post lmao.
    A lover, mother, vanguard, or a friend. No matter your species or background <3

      Yes I think it is more common than it appears.

      I've heard that maybe 10% of people are zoo, but that's difficult to measure because most people would never admit to it. I think many people keep this as their deepest secret.

      Then, what about people who are zoo-curious but never active?

        Then we have different definitions what a zoo is, because I don't see 10% of people being single while also obsessing over their dogs/horses/cattle like crazy. Riding stables would be a hot spot of people oozing zooness, if 10% of the populace were zoos, and I can assure you, they are not. Other zoos would long have picked up on the allusions being made.

      Simple answer is nobody knows and never will anything else is assumptions and wild guesses along with a dose of wishful thinking

      "The Kinsey reports rated the percentage of people who had sexual interaction with animals at some point in their lives as 8% for men and 3.6% for women, and claimed it was 40–50% in people living near farms,[9] but some later writers dispute the figures, because the study lacked a random sample in that it included a disproportionate number of prisoners, causing sampling bias. Martin Duberman has written that it is difficult to get a random sample in sexual research, and that even when Paul Gebhard, Kinsey's research successor, removed prison samples from the figures, he found the figures were not significantly changed.[16]

      By 1974, the farm population in the USA had declined by 80 percent compared with 1940, reducing the opportunity to live with animals; Hunt's 1974 study suggests that these demographic changes led to a significant change in reported occurrences of bestiality. The percentage of males who reported sexual interactions with animals in 1974 was 4.9% (1948: 8.3%), and in females in 1974 was 1.9% (1953: 3.6%). Miletski believes this is not due to a reduction in interest but merely a reduction in opportunity.[17]

      Nancy Friday's 1973 book on female sexuality, My Secret Garden, comprised around 190 fantasies from different women; of these, 23 involve zoophilic activity.[18]

      In one study, psychiatric patients were found to have a statistically significant higher prevalence rate (55 percent) of reported bestiality, both actual sexual contacts (45 percent) and sexual fantasy (30 percent) than the control groups of medical in-patients (10 percent) and psychiatric staff (15 percent).[19] Crépault and Couture (1980) reported that 5.3 percent of the men they surveyed had fantasized about sexual activity with an animal during heterosexual intercourse.[20] In a 2014 study, 3% of women and 2.2% of men reported fantasies about having sex with an animal.[21] A 1982 study suggested that 7.5 percent of 186 university students had interacted sexually with an animal."

        Yes it is guesswork. I'm just suggesting that there are probably many more zoos than ever appear on the surface through online discussion boards, etc. The members of this board are among those who dare to step forward. But for every one of us zeeps here, I would guess there are at least 100 others who choose to remain invisible.

        I can respect that choice because it averts an exposure to risk to themselves and their animals, maybe beyond that to losing family and property, jobs, etc.

        What was that phrase, "The love that dare not speak its name" or something like that. This is another case where the homosexual community provides an example of what the zoo community is going through now. They used to hide for fear of death, or losing everything. In some places, that's probably still the case. But as acceptance grew, more people came forward. Did they merely follow a trend, or was that tendency there all along, just hidden out of fear?

          I’d be very careful as using zooville members as a rule of thumb a hell of a lot here have no interest in zoo but just look at the porn

        In this context I'm assuming you mean they've done something with an animal. If so I'd say it's a hell of a lot more common if you've included being eaten out or shaft licked. How close people are to their pets I don't see why they wouldn't.

        Then again I find it natural to be with my boy so I might be biased.

          Yes. And how many of them have no idea that there is a zoo community? Time after time I've seen someone post something like "I thought I was the only one" and that's true for me, too. One day I was surfing around and somehow found Anthony Berno's site Zoomorph, and I was stunned to discover that I was not alone.

            Based on personal experience, I've found that it is more common than people would think. Whether it be actual pet play or watching it on the web with the intent to get off. Most won't readily admit to it, so finding a hard number statistic on it is difficult to say the least.

              You know, of course I have also seen several other occurences of this "omg, I thought I was alone".

              This actually looks a bit like the "birthday paradox". If you think about it, there's 8 billion people on the planet, so being the only one is really rare with anything

                The numbers getting thrown out here are still much higher than I would have expected.

                I can definitely relate to the prevalence of human animal contact on farms. It seems so much more likely, especially when you are young, to be influenced deeply by the "natural rhythms" of animal life.

                It cant have been just me to have idly encountered animals engaging in mating and rituals on the farm, and (I suppose) thus opening the door to seeing animals as having an erotic and perhaps romantic component.

                  i honestly think it is in my opinion i think a lot of people are very curious or have either had there shaft licked or pussy licked or dry humped. As it is very taboo subject it is kept very secret but yes i honestly think it is very common

                    Yeah I believe that there's more people doing it than we realize. Ya figure how many are still unaware of sites like this one or don't have access to the website or are too afraid to open up . You put them all together you're probably looking at numbers in the millions

                      Think about how many teenagers who grew up around animals be it farm or just the family dog, like a lot of us here ended up exploring our best friends equipment ... grow up around animals and you don't have thoughts of them being unclean or icky and such. Hormones get going and you check things out .. some of us realized we liked it. When you learn your best friend loves the attention only seems to add fuel to the fire. Just counting folks who have had sexual contact with an animal once .. i bet the numbers go WAY up.
