I have seen these for a while and find them interesting. The shapes, colors, quality of some of these toys look really appealing to me. I realize that it implies bestiality fetish for some, but I do know that many people who get into this wouldn't touch a real animal in a sexual way. I wondered how they got the shapes. But by observing or making molds, I do not see a huge issue. Or maybe I haven't thought about it a lot. I don't like the idea of forcing animals into sexual situations. But some animals don't seem to mind such handling so much. Or maybe they just give in as they realize humans can control them. Artificial insemination is common with livestock and other animals and I do feel a little bit of discomfort in knowing this. Perhaps I need to read up on the people who make these molds. I care just as much about animals as I do people.
I admit I almost ordered from Bad Dragon a while ago, but was turned off by the furry art. It wasn't the worst at all, it's just not my thing.
Like any toy it depends on the design of the toy. I'm definitely a fan of tentacles but I'm not sure about other animals. They definitely don't have a fetishistic appeal to me but the novelty of such an item do kind of fascinate me a little. I suppose I'm most open to the fantasy creatures and dildos that aren't necessarily an animal phallus but an animal part, namely the unicorn horn and tentacles. I might be up for adding a dragon phallus to my toybox but I'll pass on actual existing animal phalli.
I feel like if I were to get something like the Tentacle it would be because it's outrageous and makes me laugh (and would be fun to display) otherwise I don't even like the bitty rabbits and hummingbirds on vibes!
There's a website called Bad Dragon, that sells dildos that are of course "dragon-shaped" there's also stallions, and a few other creatures.
I've seen this website before. I generally dislike the concept of animal-like sex toys. they skieve me out a bit. The most disconcerting aspect of them are the varying, sometimes realistic sizes (overwhelming large).
They also have a forum where people talk about their experiences with the toys and post pictures, etc. A lot of them are actually very funny (getting caught masterbating stories and the like).
I'm actually a big fan of Bad Dragon toys. While not into the whole "Furry" thing, I like the idea of fantasy dildos.
A lot of toys are either "realistic" (human penis shaped) or what I like to call "artistic what-the-hey". Some people want something more than "realistic" but still want it to be phallic in nature. I don't find weird wibbly-wobbly toys to be that arousing. I think if you look at your toy shelf you should be licking your lips and thinking, "Oh, that looks like a lot of fun." not "Oh, this should do."
The way I look at it is that sometimes the fantasies you have aren't things you'd actually like to happen. Just because one thing gets you off in your head, doesn't mean you are about to try it out in real life. (Like a rape fantasy or sci-fi or fantasy..uhh... fantasies.)
I think if people looked at those toys in that way, a lot more people would try them.
Edit: For the record I own
Bad Dragon David The Werewolf x 2 (Small and Medium, I like both! <3)
Bad Dragon Anthro Dragon (Medium, way too large for me.)
Bad Dragon Naga (Medium)
So no strictly animal-shaped ones. But I am considering adding to my collection...
I would do one for the novelty of it. On the Bad Dragon note: my guy JUST showed me that site last night. I would consider getting one, mainly for the customization they offer (and it's silicone!!!). I mean how many places can you go to get a toy where you pick the firmness, size, AND color!?
As for the animal thing, though, I wouldn't think of it as "I'm getting a dildo shaped like a horse/dog/etc. cock." I'd think of it as "I'm getting a very interestingly-shaped dildo." Again, it's all about the novelty.
