From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

.Zoophilia, from the Greek ζῷον (zṓion, "animal") and φιλία (philia, "friendship" or "love"), is the practice of sex between humans and animals (bestiality), or a preference or fixation on such practice.^ And please, don’t say we’re not entitled to find human-animal sex repulsive.

^ Moreover, Peter ignores completely that bestiality is a phenomenon that occurs largely within the unnatural relationship of domestication; a domestic animal can no more consent to sex than could a human slave.

Zoophilia and bestiality

.The term "zoophilia" was introduced into the field of research on sexuality in Psychopathia Sexualis (1886) by Krafft-Ebing, who described a number of cases of "violation of animals (bestiality)",[2] as well as "zoophilia erotica",[3] which he defined as a sexual attraction to animal skin or fur.^ The general term zoophilia was first introduced into the field of research on sexuality by Krafft-Ebing in his book Psychopathia Sexualis (1886).

Extent of occurrence

.The Kinsey reports controversially 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 percent in people living near farms,[7] but some later writers dispute the figures, because the study lacked a random sample, and because the prison population was included, causing sampling bias.^ Among men living in rural areas, the figure shot up to 50 percent.
