Given the prevalence of negative stereotypes about furries (e.g., association with sexual deviance, presumption that the fandom is a fetish), the issue of pornography is a controversial one in the fandom. We began by assessing the frequency with which furries view pornography. Furry men were significantly more likely to view furry-themed pornography (96.3%) than furry women (78.3%). Furry men and women both significantly underestimated these figures (84% and 70%, respectively)🐾.

We also assessed other aspects of pornography use, summarized in the table below (all differences between men and women were significantly different from one another).🐾
