Sex acts with animals are legal in Canada, so long as there is no penetration involved, according to a surprise ruling issued by the Supreme Court.
There was even one vote to allow legalize bestiality with penetration, lucky thing there was at least a 7-1 vote against this.
So which animals are most at risk?
According to yournewswire.com horses and snakes are on the list.
In a 2009 study in the Archives of Sexual Behavior about zoophilia (an abnormal fondness of animals), a 47-year-old married father of two describes his sexual interest in horses:
“When I was first married, I tried so hard to be good and didn’t have any sexual contact with equines for about a year. After that, I couldn’t suppress it any more and my contact with the horses rose while my relations with my wife declined. I tried to be a normal husband but human sex always felt wrong, I could do it but I couldn’t learn to like it […] Even closing my eyes and pretending she was a horse didn’t work after a while.”
Last year, a doctor was found guilty of possessing footage of bestiality, including a video of a man having sex with a snake.
Earlier this year, a 64-year-old was charged by police after footage was found of her having sex with a St Bernard, a black labrador and an Alsatian. A vet also pleaded guilty to criminal charges in 2014 after footage was discovered of him having sex with a dog and a horse.
Police arrested a man in 2014 for allegedly attempting to have sex with a cow while another man filmed it.
Of the animals mentioned above, dogs and cows seem to be the most common victims according to a 2002 survey of 93 zoophiles by Dr Hani Miletski.
Who would have thought snakes? I can’t get my head around it, does this give “furries” more rights?
