The Machinations of Erotism: Futanari

Apologies for the lack of posts. It’s a busy time of year. So, anyway, I’ve spent a good deal of time, as you may know, considering human sexuality, especially as concerns 2D fetishism and the various subdivisions thereof. This series of… discussions, I guess you could call them, are one of the things I started OCnE to talk about as I’ve wanted to put forth my ideas on the various “weird” and “gross” (as mainstream society tends to see them, fetishes of our 2D world and maybe give fans a few places to turn for help with explaining their fascination to others; likewise, a place for those unacquainted with the particular fetishes to get a better understanding of what is at play here and a perspective that will help them see it through the eyes of a fan of that fetish.

Today, we’ll be talking about futanari. Chicks with penises. A bold choice for a first post on the subject, no doubt, but often one of the least understood of fetishes and one that has a very non-vocal fanbase outside of certain image boards and the futaket convention. Likewise, it is a fetish that is one of my personal favorites and I hope to help explain why, such that others might find their way into the glorious light of man-free sex.

First things first, often times I see an amount of confusion for futanarikko as trannies. This is a fairly inaccurate statement. While the two are not mutually exclusive in the minds of many partakers of the futanari, many of the fans I have talked to draw a firm line between females with penises and men with fake breasts and cheap wigs. I’d love to post a picture for comparison sake, but I shan’t like to do my readers such an injustice. We are, generally, not fans of futanari because of the idea that it’s a man with breasts, but rather because of the overflowing femininity that has been given an overwhelmingly masculine appendage. A lot of this comes from the fact that men are visually oriented sexually, almost to a fault. I often use the example that if you showed a close-up of a hotdog rubbing between the edges of a hotdog bun, many men would get hard.

By that same token, let’s take a perfectly acceptable situation, sexually, and apply it here. The blowjob. It’s an oft pondered over thing why men so enjoy seeing a blowjob scene in porn, sometimes to the preference of all else. There is a simple word that will play heavily into pretty much any fetish I talk about here, and that is proxy. Men, while it is not needed, are generally greatly aided by a proxy so that they can have someone to relate to in the erotic situation. This is something that not many men consider, I imagine, but it is often the case. The penis being sucked because our penis in our minds and the imagery becomes all the more potent. Now, let’s apply this to futanari. When the penis is in full view, we have a proxy without any sort of competition, i.e. another male. That is to say, we don’t have a guy who doesn’t fit properly into our mental image of ourselves, instead we have a penis, through which to proxy, and a second woman. So, in effect, the sexual imagery is all the more potent.

For the slow people, I will sum it up. You get all the benefits of yuri and hetero porn without the fat guy with no face. In fact, that is one of the things I find the most enjoyable. You get a (in the stuff I look at) beautiful girl fucking another beautiful girl, making those wonderful expressions. To draw another example that is nice and quotable, it’s like strap-on porn with a money shot. Many men know the importance of seeing ejaculation. To explain, it is very similar to the original proxy of the penis to begin with, their sexual excitement and release becomes ours in our mind. Likewise, seeing ejaculate tends to do for males what seeing a delicious meal does for a hungry person. These topics are basically just relative to normal sex, but that is really the truth to futanari, it’s not that far off from normal sex. Just take a girl in a strap-on, make the strap-on real and you’re done.

Anyway, that’s about all I have for this one, since I am lazy. Haha. Please feel free to ask further questions or present your views in the comments. I’d like to hear them.
