Is “Zoophilia” The New Normal Sexual Orientation and Lifestyle Choice?

Is having sex with animals the “new normal” lifestyle and sexual orientation choice in America?

What is Zoophilia? According to U.S. medical and mental health professionals, and the clinical definitions they use to diagnose and classify mental disorders, Zoophilia is one form of paraphilia (deviant sexual behavior). Pedophilia is another.

The American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) defines Paraphilic Disorders as a “sexual deviation” comprised of three categories. An adult suffering from a paraphilic disorder expresses recurrent, intense, sexually arousing fantasies, and sexual urges or behaviors that either manifest in one or all three of identified sexual disorders.

Zoophilia involves nonhuman subjects, where adult human beings express an erotic attraction to animals or an abnormal desire to have sexual contact with animals.

With a slew of documentaries and news stories about people “being born that way” to have sex with non-human animals, one wonders what could possibly be defined next as “normal” behavior.

Many may not realize that it is legal to have sex with non-human animals (horses, cows, pigs, dogs, dolphins, rabbits or any other creature) in Washington, D.C., Hawaii, Kentucky, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Ohio, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

 

Known as bestiality, zoophilia is illegal in all other states considered either a misdemeanor or felony. In some states bestiality is defined as “cruelty to animals;” in others a “deviant sexual act,” and in others, “a detestable, abominable crime against nature.” Zoophiles like Malcolm Brenner argue relationships with animals, like he had with Dolly the bottle nose dolphin, should be as normal those in interracial relationships.

But, is zoophilia really a sexual orientation choice?
