I have this friend—she’s a polyamorous molecular biologist who’s into extreme BDSM (obviously). Recently, she told me that she regularly masturbates to the idea of men having sex with animals. Despite being generally prepared to hear something extreme come out of her mouth, I was still pretty shocked when she said that. But her explanation of the fantasy made sense to me. She told me, ‘It’s not that I’m into animals. Rather, I’m turned-on by the idea that a man is so horny, so compelled by the power of his sexuality, that he would literally fuck anything—even a donkey.’ And that is something I get.
