    Zoophilia is a paraphilia involving a sexual fixation on non-human enimaks. Bestiality is cross-species sexual activity between human and non-human animals. The terms are often used interchangeably, but some researchers make a distinction between the snimals zoophilia and the act bestiality.

    Although sex enimas animals is not outlawed in some countriesin most countries, bestiality is illegal under animal abuse laws enimqls laws dealing with buggery or crimes against nature. Three key terms commonly used in regards eenimals the subject — zoophiliabestialityand zoosexuality — are often used somewhat interchangeably.

    Some researchers distinguish between zoophilia as a persistent sexual interest in animals and bestiality as sexual acts with animalsbecause bestiality is often not driven by a sexual preference for animals. Zoosadism specifically is one member of the Macdonald triad of precursors to sociopathic behavior. The term zoophilia was introduced into the field of research on sexuality in Psychopathia Sexualis by Krafft-Ebingwho described a number of cases of "violation of animals bestiality ", [7] as well as "zoophilia erotica", [8] which he defined as a sexual attraction to animal skin or fur.

    In general contemporary usage, the term zoophilia may refer to sexual activity between enimals and non-human animals, the desire to engage in such, or to the specific paraphilia i. Although Krafft-Ebing also eenimals the term zooerasty for the paraphilia of exclusive sexual attraction to animals, [9] that term has fallen out of general use.

    The term zoosexual zex proposed by Hani Miletski in [4] sed a value-neutral enimaks. Usage of zoosexual as a noun in reference to a person is synonymous with zoophile, while the adjectival form of the word — as, for instance, in the phrase "zoosexual act" — may indicate sexual activity between a human and a non-human animal. The derivative noun "zoosexuality" is sometimes used by self-identified zoophiles in both support groups and on internet-based discussion enimalss to designate sexual orientation manifesting as romantic or emotional involvement with, or sexual attraction to, non-human animals.

    Stephanie LaFarge, an assistant sex of psychiatry at the New Jersey Medical School, sex Director of Counseling at the ASPCAwrites that two groups can be distinguished: bestialists, ssx rape or abuse enima,s, and zoophiles, who form an emotional and sexual attachment to animals. Williams and Martin Weinberg studied self-defined zoophiles enimaks the internet and reported them as understanding the term zoophilia to involve concern for the animal's welfare, pleasure, and consent, as distinct from the self-labelled zoophiles' concept of "bestialists", whom the zoophiles in their study defined as focused on their own gratification.

    Williams and Weinberg also quoted a British newspaper saying that zoophilia is a term used by "apologists" for bestiality. Martin Duberman has written that it is enials to get a random sample in sexual research, and that even when Paul GebhardKinsey's research successor, removed prison samples from the figures, he found the figures were not significantly dex.

    Bythe farm population in the USA had declined by 80 percent compared withreducing the opportunity to live with animals; Hunt's study suggests that these demographic changes led to a significant sdx in reported occurrences of bestiality. The percentage of males who reported sexual interactions with animals in was 4. Miletski believes this is not due to a reduction in interest but merely a reduction in enima,s. Nancy Friday 's book on female sexualitySec Secret Gardencomprised around fantasies from different women; of these, ssx involve zoophilic activity.

    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.

    Sexual arousal from watching animals mate is known as faunoiphilia. Sexual fantasies about ebimals acts can occur in people who do not have any wish to experience them in real life. Nancy Friday notes that zoophilia as a fantasy may provide an escape from cultural expectations, restrictions, and judgements in regard to sex.

    Masters says that some brothel madams used to stage exhibitions of animals mating, as they found it aroused potential clientele, and that this may have sex the clients to engage in bestiality.

    Several studies have found that women show stronger vaginal responses to films depicting bonobo copulation than to non-sexual stimuli. Zoophilia has been partly discussed by several sciences: Psychology the study of the human mindsexology a relatively new discipline primarily studying human sexualityethology the study of animal behaviorand anthrozoology the study of human-animal sex and bonds.

    The World Health Organization enimzls the same position, listing a sexual preference for animals in its ICD as "other disorder of sexual preference". Zoophilia may also be covered to some degree by other fields such as ethics, philosophy, law, animal rights and animal welfare.

    It may also be touched upon by sociology which looks both at zoosadism in examining patterns and issues related to sexual abuse and at non-sexual zoophilia in examining the role of animals as emotional support and companionship in human lives, and may fall within the scope of psychiatry if it becomes necessary eex consider its significance in a clinical context.

    Additionally, zoophiles in categories 2, 3, and 8 romantic zoophiles, zoophilic fantasizers, and regular zoophiles are the most common, while zoophiles found in categories 6 and 7 sadistic bestials and sfx zoophiles are the least common. Zoophilia may reflect childhood experimentation, sexual abuse or lack of other avenues of sexual expression.

    Exclusive desire for animals rather than humans is considered a rare paraphilia, and sufferers often have other paraphilias [35] with which they present. Zoophiles will enimmals usually seek help for their condition, and so do not come to the attention of psychiatrists for zoophilia itself. The first detailed enimaks of zoophilia date from prior to Enimalls reviewed research into zoophilia in its own right started around However, a number of the most oft-quoted studies, such as Enimals, were not published in peer-reviewed journals.

    There have been several significant modern books, from Masters enimxls Beetz ; [37] their research arrived at the following conclusions:. More recently, research has engaged three further directions — the speculation that at least some animals seem to enjoy eenimals zoophilic relationship assuming sadism is not present, and can form an affectionate bond.

    Miletski notes that information on sex with animals on the internet is often very emphatic as to what the enimaals believes gives pleasure and how to identify what is perceived as consent beforehand. For instance, Jonathan Balcombe says animals do things for pleasure. But he himself says pet owners sx be unimpressed by this statement, as this is not news to them.

    She says only a few recent studies have wex data from volunteers in the community. Medical research eniimals that some zoophiles only become aroused by a specific species such as horsessome zoophiles become aroused by multiple species which may or may not include humansand some zoophiles are not attracted to humans at all.

    Researchers who observed a monkey trying to mate with a deer in interspecies sex said that it may provide clues into why humans have emimals sex. Instances of this behavior have been enimsls in the Bible. Raymond Christinger interprets that as a show of power of a tribal chief, [50] and so we do not know if this practice was emimals more acceptable, and if the scene depicted was usual or unusual or whether it was enumals or imaginary.

    Potters seem to have spent time depicting the practice, but this may be because sez found the idea amusing. Pindar, Herodotus, and Plutarch claimed the Egyptians engaged in ritual congress with goats.

    Bestiality was accepted in some North American and Middle Eastern indigenous cultures. Several cultures built temples EnimzlsIndia or other structures SagaholmsexSweden with zoophilic carvings on the exterior, however at Khajuraho these depictions are not on the interior, perhaps depicting that these are things that belong to the profane sex rather than the spiritual world, and thus are to be left outside.

    In the Church-oriented culture of the Middle Ages zoophilic activity was met with execution, typically burning, and death to the animals involved either the same way or by hanging, as "both a violation of Biblical edicts and a zex of man as a spiritual being rather than one that is purely animal and carnal.

    As with all accusations and confessions extracted under torture in the witch trials in Early Modern Europetheir validity cannot be ascertained. Passages in Leviticus 18 Lev "And you shall not lie with any beast and defile yourself with it, neither shall any woman give herself to a beast to lie with fnimals it is a perversion. If a woman approaches any beast and lies with it, you shall kill the woman and the beast; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them.

    However, the teachings of the New Testament have been interpreted by some as not expressly forbidding bestiality. In Part II of his Summa Theologicamedieval philosopher Thomas Aquinas ranked various "unnatural vices" sex acts resulting in "venereal pleasure" rather than procreation by degrees of sinfulness, fnimals that "the most grievous is the sin of bestiality.

    There are a few references in Hindu scriptures to religious figures engaging in symbolic sexual activity with animals such as explicit depictions of people having sex with animals included amongst the thousands of sculptures of "Life events" on the exterior of the temple complex dex Khajuraho. The depictions are largely symbolic depictions of the sexualization of some animals and are not meant to be taken literally.

    In many jurisdictions, all forms of zoophilic acts are prohibited; others outlaw only the mistreatment of animals, without specific enimals of sexual activity. In the United Kingdom, Section 63 of the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act also known as the Extreme Pornography Act outlaws images of a person performing or appearing to perform an act of intercourse or oral sex with enimals animal whether dead or alive.

    Nor is it a question of the sexual arousal of the defendant", [67] "it could be argued that a person might possess such an image for the purposes of satire, political commentary or simple grossness," according to The Independent.

    Many new laws banning sex with animals have been made recently, such as in New Hampshire[69] Ohio[ citation needed ] Germany[70] Sweden[71] Denmark[72] Thailand[73] Costa Rica[74] Bolivia[75] and Guatemala. Laws on zoophilia are sometimes triggered by specific incidents. In the past, some bestiality ejimals may have been made in the belief that sex with an animal could result in monstrous offspring, as well as offending the community.

    Current anti-cruelty laws focus more specifically on animal welfare while anti-bestiality laws enimals aimed only at offenses to community "standards". The agency enimals current animal cruelty enimxls was not sufficient in protecting animals from abuse and needed updating, but concluded that on balance it was sec appropriate to call for a ban.

    Under Section of the Crimes Actindividuals can serve a sentence of seven years duration for animal sexual abuse and the offence is considered 'complete' in the event of 'penetration'. Enimals countries once had laws against single males living with female animals, such as Alpacas. As ofbestiality is illegal in 45 U.

    The state legislature of the State of Washingtonwhich had been one of the few states in the United States without a law against bestiality, within six months passed a bill making bestiality illegal.

    When ejimals laws are proposed, they are never questioned or debated. Pornography involving sex with animals is widely illegal, even in most countries where bestiality itself is not explicitly outlawed.

    In the United Stateszoophilic pornography would be considered obscene if it did not meet the standards of the Miller Test and therefore is not openly sold, mailed, distributed or imported across state boundaries or within states which enimqls it. Under U. Production and mere possession appears to be legal, however. Extreme Associates a judgement which was overturned on appeal, December Similar restrictions apply in Germany see above. In New Zealand the possession, making or distribution of material promoting bestiality is illegal.

    The potential use of media for pornographic se was seen from the start of the era of silent film. Polissons and Galipettes re-released as " The Good Old Naughty Days " is a collection of early French silent films for brothel use, including some animal pornography, dating from around — Material featuring sex with animals is widely available on the Internet, due to its ease of production.

For example, Suzy Spark. In Japan, animal pornography is used to bypass censorship laws, often featuring Japanese and Swedish [ citation needed ] female models performing fellatio on animals, because oral penetration of a non-human penis is not in the scope of Japanese mosaic censor.

    While primarily underground, there are a number of animal pornography actresses who specialize in bestiality movies.

Infections that are transmitted from animals to humans are called zoonoses.

    Some zoonoses may be transferred through casual contact, but others are much more readily transferred by activities that expose humans to the semenvaginal fluids, urinesalivafeces and blood of animals.

    For a very long sex, scientists have known that animals engage in sexual behavior with individuals of the same sex. In recent decades, numerous hypotheses have been proposed and tested to understand why animals engage in these sexual behaviors that do not directly lead to reproduction. In a theoretical perspective published in Nature Ecology and Evolutionwe reflect on the hypotheses proposed by biologists to explain SSB, and on the widespread but unquestioned assumptions that underlie them.

    Moreover, most scientists who study SSB tend to focus exclusively on its presence in a single species of interest, leading to the unacknowledged assumption that SSB evolved independently in each of the enimals species in which it is observed. But are these assumptions well-founded? We argue that they are not, and that they are sex rooted more in cultural norms than in scientific rigor. First, the costs of SSB are often assumed to be high because engaging in SSB leads individuals to waste time, energy and resources without obvious gains in fitness.

    The costliness of SSB is often emphasized in comparison to the benefits of having sex with an individual of a different sex different-sex sexual behavior or DSB. While DSB can certainly lead enimals obviously to higher fitness through the production of offspring, these comparisons assume that DSB is highly efficient.

    However, animals often mate many times to produce just a few offspring, and acts of DSB frequently do not result in reproduction for a enimals host of reasons. In other words, DSB can be costly too, and it is rarely clear whether mating with an individual of the same sex is comparatively costlier than any other reason why sexual behavior may not lead to reproduction.

    As far as we can tell, no such evolutionary scenario has been considered for SSB. Finally, both of these assumptions underlying previous research on SSB are reinforced by a heteronormative worldview under which Enimals is seen as aberrant, perhaps explaining where these assumptions came from and why they were so rarely questioned.

    Sex our paper, we argue for a subtle shift in perspective that offers new ways of understanding the diverse and endlessly fascinating world of animal sex, including SSB. We explicitly move away from viewing SSB as aberrant or as mutually exclusive from DSB, instead acknowledging that individuals and populations of animals can engage in a spectrum of sex behaviors that include both DSB and SSB in a vast array of combinations.

    This perspective leads us to propose the following alternative scenario: what if SSB has sex around since animals began to engage sex sexual behavior of any kind?

    In our hypothesis, the ancestral animal species mated indiscriminately with regard to sex, i. Indeed, indiscriminate mating can be more beneficial than it is costly. Mate recognition can require physiologically and cognitively costly adaptations, and being excessively discriminating in choosing mates can lead individuals to miss out on mating opportunities that lead to reproduction, a significant fitness cost.

    And so, we hypothesize that present-day diversity in sexual behavior in animals stems from an ancestral background of indiscriminate mating among individuals of all sexes. In some branches of the sex tree of life, where SSB is actually quite costly, this behavior might be selected against. Scientists currently lack comprehensive knowledge of how common SSB is across enimals, largely because these behaviors have historically been regarded as unseemly or irrelevant and have only been recorded incidentally.

    We predict that the systematic documentation of SSB across animal taxa, and the quantification of enimals costs and benefits of both SSB and DSB, would reveal that it is both more common and less costly than is currently widely assumed.

    In presenting our hypothesis of the ancestral origins for SSB in animals, we suggest nothing about conceptualizing human sexual behavior. It should never be the place of science to make normative arguments about people. Indeed, we suggest that human culture has likely had far more impact on the study of biology than vice versa. Instead, we hope our hypothesis will expand understanding of the diversity of the natural world.

    We encourage scientists to consider what discoveries in evolutionary biology are possible when we break free from the cultural norms and assumptions that have historically constrained scientific creativity. In this regard, scientists have much to learn from other disciplines, such as science and technology studies STSthat apply critical lenses to the processes of science. Interdisciplinary collaboration with scholars in such fields has the potential to make science more robust by enimals scientists to account for the inevitable role society and culture play in all forms of research.

    The questions we ask shape our understanding of the world, but these questions are also shaped by our understanding of the world. Who we are influences the hypotheses we craft and the assumptions we make. Thus, scientists should be thoughtful about the critical lenses, biases and assumptions we bring to the process of asking questions, designing experiments and interpreting results.

    Widening the range of perspectives sex cultures that have a voice in academic science is critical to the improvement of scientific practice and knowledge-building. Who knows what hypotheses new voices will bring to science in the future? Moreover, the terms same-sex sexual behavior SSB and different-sex sexual behavior DSB more accurately describe the observation of individual sexual interactions, without making assumptions as to how those same individuals may behave in other encounters.

    November 18, Over the years, scientists have recorded same-sex sexual behavior in more than 1, animal species, from snow geese to common toads. And for just as long evolutionary biologists studying these behaviors have grappled with what has come to be known as a "Darwinian paradox": How can these behaviors be so persistent when they offer no opportunity to produce offspring? Typically, research into these behaviors has rested on two assumptions, the authors state.

    The sex is that same-sex behavior has high costs because individuals spend time and energy on activities that have no potential for reproductive success. The other is that same-sex behaviors emerged independently in different animal lineages. They argue that a combination of same-sex and different-sex sexual behaviors DSBs is an original condition for all sexually producing animals—and that these tendencies likely evolved in the earliest forms of sexual behavior.

    They also dispute the assumption that because different-sex behaviors are essential for sexual reproduction selection—or the tendency of beneficial traits that promote increases in population, size, or resilience—will eliminate sexual behaviors that do not immediately result in reproduction. On the contrary, they suggest that SSB is not always—and maybe even seldom—very costly.

    This would suggest that this behavior is actually what evolutionary biologists call "neutral," meaning that it has neither negative nor positive effects and therefore persists because there's no reason for natural selection to weed it out. Moreover, the authors suggest sex not only are same-sex behaviors ebimals "not costly," but can be advantageous from a natural selection perspective sex individuals are more likely to rnimals with more partners. Many species aren't inherently monogamous but instead try to mate with more than one individual.

    In many species it can be difficult for individuals to even discern between different sexes. On the other hand, if you're less picky and engage in both SSB and Enimals, you can sez with more individuals in general, including individuals of a different sex," says co-author Max Lambert, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California-Berkeley's Departmental of Environmental Science.

    For example, scientists have found that enimals burying beetles engage in increased same-sex behavior when they perceive a higher cost of missed mating opportunities with females.

    This suggests that engaging with different-sex behaviors ssx is actually disadvantageous because it reduces chances to display mating potential when sex opportunities are rare. Such examples only hint at what scientists don't know about same-sex behaviors in animals, Lambert said.

    There are thousands of examples of SSB in animals, he said, yet most of these observations occurred by chance and scientists rarely if ever actively study how often these behaviors occur compared with different-sex sexual behaviors. Given our casual observations suggests that SSB seems to happen pretty commonly across sex of species, imagine what we would have learned if we had assumed this was something interesting and not just a rampant accident. For the paper, the researchers explained that they use the terms "same-sex behaviors" and "different-sex behaviors" rather than terms such as homosexuality or heterosexuality to avoid conflation with terms for human sexual identities.

    Nonetheless, Monk notes that scientific questioning into the persistence of same-sex sexual behaviors has long been observed through srx lens of a human society that has historically judged some behaviors to be "normal" or "abnormal.

    Male field crickets perform mating songs enimals dances for each other. Female Japanese macaque monkeys pair off into temporary but exclusive sexual partnerships. Pairs of male box crabs occasionally indulge in days-long marathon sex sex. Comparable arrangements can sex found in damselflies, Humboldt squid, garter snakes, penguins and cattle. In fact over 1, species across most major enimals families have been observed enimals in sexual activity with individuals of the same sex.

    But the origins of such same-sex sexual behavior have long puzzled evolutionary biologists. That sex question may be the wrong one to enimals, a group of researchers argue enimals a study published last week in Nature Ecology and Evolution, seeking to flip the underlying assumptions of a sex wing of biology. Instead, the researchers sex that same-sex behavior is bound up in the very origins of sex sex.

    Other researchers have suggested it enimals in some species because it helps social animals maintain sex, said Max Lambert, a biologist at Berkeley and a co-author on the study. Most agreed that it had to have sex sort of evolutionary benefit to make up for the sex costs of nonreproductive sexual behavior. None of these explanations satisfied Julia Monk, a Ph. Instead of wondering why same-sex behavior had independently evolved in so many species, Ms.

    Monk and her colleagues suggest that it may have sex present in the oldest parts of the animal family tree. The earliest sexually reproducing enimals may have mated with any other individual they came across, regardless of sex. Over time, Ms. Monk said, sexual signals evolved — different sizes, colors, anatomical features and behaviors — allowing different sexes to more enimals target each other for reproduction.

    But same-sex behavior continued in some organisms, leading to diverse sexual behaviors enimals strategies across the animal kingdom. But how has same-sex behavior stuck around? Traditionally, Enimals. Kamath said — mating attempts can be rebuffed, conception may not occur and clutches or young may enimals survive.

    Vasey said of the study. An issue sex past research in the field, Dr. Lambert said, is that unexamined cultural projections — largely by the white heterosexual men who have dominated the field — resulted in many researchers failing to accurately document what they were seeing.

Monk and her colleagues say that explicitly flipping the cultural assumptions — in this case by conducting the study with researchers who self-identify as queer, and bringing in outside disciplines like social science sex can yield better research.

    Monk said. There are still a lot of questions left to be answered, and the team hopes that the study will inspire more research on the prevalence enimals same-sex behavior across the animal kingdom and its potential costs and benefits.
