Given that many negative stereotypes about the furry fandom suggest that it is a fetish or is predominantly associated with sexuality, we asked our sample of furry artists to estimate the percent of the content they produced which was erotic in nature. On average, they estimated that 25% of the work they produced was “adult,”🐾 and 17.6% said that more than half the content they produced was explicit, although 32.4% indicated that they produced artwork with no erotic content at all.🐾 75% of artists stated that they had been asked at least once to create something that they were not personally comfortable with and 22% said that they actually went through with it and produced the content despite their reservations. 67% of stated that they try to avoid such issues by posting a list of content that they would not produce (e.g., particular fetishes or themes.)🐾
