Chus Martinez On Plushophilia

Image

Plushophilia is a paraphilia involving stuffed toy animals. Plushophiles are sometimes called plushies, although this term (plushies) can also refer to non-sexual stuffed toy animal enthusiasts, and to stuffed toy animals in general.

Image

Plushophilia is sometimes assumed to be a practice common within furry fandom, due in part to a 2001 article by Vanity Fair that linked various members of the furry community with plushophilia.

Image

A 1998 survey of 360 members of the furry community suggested less than one percent attested to being plushophiles.

Pornography and sexual activity involving animal anthropomorphism (including plushophilia and paraphilias involving fursuits and cartoon animals) is known in the furry fandom community as “yiff” (and sexual acts as “yiffing”).

Image

Anne Lawrence has proposed that sexual arousal that depends upon imagining one’s self as plush or “representations of anthropomorphic animal characters in animated cartoons” be termed autoplushophilia.

Image

Paraphilic interests that involve being in another form have been referred to as erotic target location errors.
