Sexual Furries and the Language of Furry Sex

Furry sex isn’t always part of furry fandom, but for some who enjoy the lifestyle, kinky play is part of the appeal.

I used to think furries were just a group of people who find sexual pleasure in dressing up as cute, fur-covered creatures of the forest. I had no idea that it was an entire lifestyle, complete with online communities and even its own language.

Those who identify as furries feel a very personal connection to the creatures they choose to represent. The whole scene is fuelled by a mix of anthropomorphism, art and furry sexuality.

Furry Sex: From Furplay to BDSM

If you find yourself at one of these furry gatherings or fall for a furry, you’ll want to be prepared with some knowledge of the specialized terms for furry sex and affection that you might hear. 

Scritching

This one is pretty self-explanatory. Scritching is the act of gently scratching another Furry’s costume. It’s meant as a gesture of kindness and endearment and can be a precursor to Furplay. “Please may I scritch you behind the ears, Mr. Fox?”

Furplay

Yep, this is just what it sounds like—the furry version of foreplay. I didn’t read far enough into the particulars of furry culture to really discover what furplay entails, though I would assume there’s a lot of heavy petting. (Sorry about that one.)

Murrr

This is the sound one might make while engaged in some really satisfying furplay. It’s akin to the purrr of a cat, and arises under similar circumstances of happiness and relaxation. I’m not sure if furries dressed as cats are still considered to murrr? If you know the answer, please leave us a comment.

Yiffing

Basically, this is a euphemism for sexual intercourse within the furry community. It’s also the sound a fox makes and can sometimes be used to denote excitement.

When using it to refer to furry sex in a sentence one might say, “We certainly heard a great deal of yiffing coming from your hotel room last night!”

Nuzzlick

Again, this term is fairly self-descriptive. A nuzzlick is essentially some nuzzling action mixed with a few licks. It’s kind of a sexually heightened nuzzle, or a precursor to sexual furplay. (Can you tell I enjoy writing the word, furplay?)

Fursona

Another term for furry alter ego. Jordan, who is a software designer from Deluth Iowa, might only introduce himself as his fursonaAsrtrica the Squirrel—and that’s his God-given right to do so!

BDSM Furries

Sometimes furry kink takes place in a BDSM context. Pet play, or animal roleplay is a popular way to play out roles of domination and submission, and some who enjoy pet play enjoy the full sexual furry treatment.
