AC360 Exposé: Furries Have A Certain Sex Fetish

by Sara K. Smith

Oh, this was so awesome, the other day! What could be better than Anderson Cooper plus furries? Anderson Cooper crackin’ on furries, and suggesting they do more at their glamorous Pittsburgh conference than talk. So adorable! [YouTube]

That’s as close as AC and CB will ever get to having the sex.

Lascauxcaveman July 6, 2009 at 12:01 pm

Too hawt. I’m going to take off my purple dinosaur costume and go take a cold shower now.

51dimes July 6, 2009 at 12:04 pm

Only once a year? I thought that Pittsburgh was one eternal furry fest. My bad.

Vulpes82 July 6, 2009 at 12:04 pm

He should know; he IS the Silver Fox!

ShamWow July 6, 2009 at 12:05 pm

Last weekend at SF Pride I was told that furries are dudes that have a lot of body hair and plushies are people who have hott-sexy-sex while wearing animal costumes. Then again the person who told me this was drunkenly whipping a male little bo beep so I doubt their reliability

“You’ll have to Google it, everyone.”


There are sweatier ways to get independent initiative points, AndyCandypants.

WadISay July 6, 2009 at 12:05 pm

Sounds like Anderson’s proposal to dress up like a chimp and pick lice off of Campbell went nowhere.

AliBabaInBA July 6, 2009 at 12:07 pm

Faux fauna fuck-fest? Smells bad from here.

charlesdegoal July 6, 2009 at 12:07 pm

Furries in Pennsylvania do it, Politicians in Nevada and Argentina do it…
America is becoming a nation of voyeurs, titillated by the idea that people actually fuck. Don’t we all? Not often enough? What else is new?

Mahousu July 6, 2009 at 12:10 pm

AC claimed that he knew nothing about sports, but I suspect he’s pretty knowledgeable about watersports, at least …

Monsieur Grumpe July 6, 2009 at 12:15 pm

Scarred CB? Maybe you feel that itch you can only get by engulfing yourself head to toe in nothing but a minx costume made with the finest synthetics. Call me.

Mr Blifil July 6, 2009 at 12:23 pm

Does this relate somehow to Palin’s higher calling?

Country Club Jihadi July 6, 2009 at 12:25 pm

Thanks, Anderson. I did “Google it”. I took the quiz ‘What kind of furrie are you?” and now I am scarred for life.

JayRodriguez July 6, 2009 at 12:25 pm

Love this comment. Sounds like a Sarah Palin quote. Maybe this is why she quit:

“OK. how dare them. CNN and Vanity Fair making those dumbassed remarks about us furs. What a bunch of crap they posted in their article. a bunch of lies. We are not Sexual beasts that they claim us to be. God i hate the media when it comes to their lies and deceptions about us.”

BadKitty July 6, 2009 at 12:27 pm

[re=355554]Mr Blifil[/re]: What type of furry do ya suppose the soon-to-be-former-governor Palin is?

J05H July 6, 2009 at 12:29 pm

Furries are everyone’s problem.

Airborne Toxic Event July 6, 2009 at 12:30 pm

Perhaps Campbell was scarred by more than that Vanity Fair article.

Scarab July 6, 2009 at 12:31 pm

Those people are sick. What kind of weirdos go to Pittsburgh every year?

artbot2000 July 6, 2009 at 12:36 pm

A.) So what were the panel topics? Was there sex? Oh dear me. There’s sex at ALA conventions, so yes, probably.

B.) You must scroll through the angry letters from furries regarding the Vanity Fur article. They are angry at the media bekuz it does not treat them with dignity. They are furries, hear them roar. Do I sense a Palin tie-in? You betcha.

C.) Scarred… oh sure. Pony girl.

orange July 6, 2009 at 12:36 pm

i’d yiff AC.

x111e7thst July 6, 2009 at 12:37 pm

I’d do either or both of them.In a thruway rest-stop if necessary, though not by preference. As long as there were no fursuits involved. I do have standards.

Cicada July 6, 2009 at 12:38 pm

[re=355557]JayRodriguez[/re]: Gosh, why would anyone think of furries as perverted sexual beasts?
Oh yeah:

Country Club Jihadi July 6, 2009 at 12:39 pm

[re=355558]BadKitty[/re]: Road Kill.

Zorg July 6, 2009 at 12:40 pm

There is an annual convention? In the middle of summer? In Pittsburgh? This makes the Ren Fair, Stars Wars and ComiCon people look positively normal.

trickyrick July 6, 2009 at 12:44 pm

makes me want to cuddle up with that silver fox and that foxy minx.
puuurrrr fect!

Paul Tardy July 6, 2009 at 12:46 pm

Furries are to the 21st century, what Gays were to the 20th. Frankly, gays these days are mostly old boring people, and conformists, totally unworthy of Oprah coverage. Furry on the other hand is where it’s going on. Give it up Gays, you’ve been knocked off your perch.

trickyrick July 6, 2009 at 12:47 pm

[re=355558]BadKitty[/re]: skunk, skank, or tasmanian devil.

Nikolai Vsevolodovich Stavrogin July 6, 2009 at 12:53 pm

[re=355576]Paul Tardy[/re]: Give the rest of us some insight: how big is the overlapping area in the Venn diagram of furries and Paultards?

Come here a minute July 6, 2009 at 12:53 pm

Did you people learn nothing from Wonkette’s historical Invasion of the Giant Campbell Brown? That is not Ms. Brown, that is Erica Hill, CNN furry correspondent. Campbell must have had the weekend off to party with the Foo Fighters.

WickedWitch July 6, 2009 at 12:55 pm

That’s not CB, that’s EH. People, not all brunettes look alike!!!

Lionel Hutz Esq. July 6, 2009 at 1:01 pm

I thought Anderson Cooper meant that they go out for nice dinners.

Oh, and they take cock up the ass.

El Pinche July 6, 2009 at 1:04 pm

Speaking of beast fucking…the sexual tension between AC and EH always gets me off and CNN knows this.

SayItWithWookies July 6, 2009 at 1:09 pm

[re=355580]Come here a minute[/re]: Thanks for clearing that up. I thought it was Campbell Brown in a squirrel suit.

steve July 6, 2009 at 1:11 pm

[re=355563]Scarab[/re]: Dude, some of us have to live here, okay? No need for the liberal coasts of America’s better half to rub in the fact that our claims to fame are annual furries and the occasional cut nut.

populucious July 6, 2009 at 1:12 pm

[re=355564]artbot2000[/re]: Dignity? So those who cruise for bridge partners and “other things” while wearing animal mascot costumes got into it cuz it was dignified?


PS- AC is so wanting to ask EH what her costume would be, and then EH would have turned purple and exploded, and it would have been very funny.

Country Club Jihadi July 6, 2009 at 1:13 pm

AC wears Gloria Vanderbilt’s vintage platinum mink and calls himself the “Grey Poop-on”.

Holding Out for a Hero July 6, 2009 at 1:15 pm

[re=355591]El Pinche[/re]: Perhaps if AC and EH dressed up as furries and had at it, CNN’s ratings would go up.

Humpback July 6, 2009 at 1:16 pm

Gosh, I hate being a mammal without fur.

El Pinche July 6, 2009 at 1:26 pm

[re=355602]Holding Out for a Hero[/re]: and if it was pay per view, i’d buy it.

Mad Brahms July 6, 2009 at 1:28 pm

The thought of people dressing up as animals to have sex with each other is somehow not the most disturbing part of the whole furry thing, somehow. Sure, it’s among the more fucked-up fetishes out there, but hey, whatever. The scary part is that the vast majority of furries report that they *don’t* want to have fursex, indicating that they have some other motive for dressing their obese, perpetually-adolescent asses in giant animal costumes. If there’s a higher level of social ineptitude, I don’t want to know what it is.

Naked Bunny with a Whip July 6, 2009 at 1:29 pm

Screw dignity. I’m a furry cuz it’s awesome and fun, and socializing at a con is 10,000 times better than sitting at home, watching a Seymour Butts Pool Party video with the lights down and the shades drawn, weeping with shame as I fap away, like most of Anderson Cooper’s audience does.

Naked Bunny with a Whip July 6, 2009 at 1:33 pm

P.S. I think the current “furries have weird sex” meme is a vast improvement over the old “furries never get laid at all”. Thanks, guys!

By the way, did we miss the Fairy Congress convention? I don’t actually read Wonkette. (Sorry!)

Judas Peckerwood July 6, 2009 at 1:36 pm

I took the quiz and I’m and Otter! YAY! Now how/where does one acquire an otter suit? A little help, please!

nightshift July 6, 2009 at 1:36 pm

[re=355547]Mahousu[/re]: Watersports? Like aqua ballet???

Gopherit July 6, 2009 at 1:37 pm

[re=355617]Naked Bunny with a Whip[/re]: I’ll yiff to that.

Naked Bunny with a Whip July 6, 2009 at 1:38 pm

[re=355613]Mad Brahms[/re]: the vast majority of furries report that they *don’t* want to have fursex

Most furries don’t wear costumes in the first place, so that follows.

Furries are like Teh Gays. Most of the time, you can’t even tell we’re sitting next to you on the bus, subtly brainwashing you and your children. Mwahaha!

2druk2phluq July 6, 2009 at 1:39 pm

[re=355613]Mad Brahms[/re]: tl;dr
[re=355617]Naked Bunny with a Whip[/re]: cool story, bro

2druk2phluq July 6, 2009 at 1:41 pm


lizard scum July 6, 2009 at 1:47 pm

Furries are the endgame of our atavistic country.

Naked Bunny with a Whip July 6, 2009 at 1:49 pm

@Judas Peckerwood: Fursuits are expansive. Join Second Life and get yourself an otter avatar. That’s what all the cool people do! That, and smoke.

Neilist July 6, 2009 at 1:49 pm

Isn’t this kind of thing illegal?

If not, why?

(And didn’t Monty Python do a skit about this, about 30 years ago? English Wankers dressing up as mice?)

Naked Bunny with a Whip July 6, 2009 at 1:51 pm

Er, expensive. Though many are expansive as well, by necessity.

bago July 6, 2009 at 2:03 pm

[re=355640]lizard scum[/re]: I would think that in this instance avataristic would be more appropriate.

PigeonPoop July 6, 2009 at 2:07 pm

I am so in love with Erica Hill. Still

CthuNHu July 6, 2009 at 2:14 pm

[re=355558]BadKitty[/re]: An Arctic Fox.

A rabid Arctic Fox.

In spandex shorts.

With a machine gun.


finallyhappy July 6, 2009 at 2:24 pm

[re=355571]Zorg[/re]: I resemble that remark! I went to a Star Trek convention once- but I didn’t fit in. People kept asking me who I was(I didn’t know you were supposed to dress as a character so I wore pants and a T-shirt)- I told them “a director”

El Pinche July 6, 2009 at 2:39 pm

I’m guessing:

EH is not furry

CB is furry

President Beeblebrox July 6, 2009 at 2:52 pm

[re=355539]51dimes[/re]: As a former Pittsburgher, I can attest to the fact that in the Pittsburgh area, a furry is more likely to be killed, dressed, and eaten than yiffed.

kapish July 6, 2009 at 3:12 pm

I left da burgh because it was too hot & sticky in the summer to wear a shirt, tie, & sport coat
ta work dantan. Younz in those animal costumes are real jag-offs.

lizard scum July 6, 2009 at 3:12 pm

[re=355664]bago[/re]: food 4 thought

Lazy Media July 6, 2009 at 5:27 pm

I hate to break it to Miss Cooper, but furries aren’t the only ones doing more than panel discussions. SF, gamer and comic-book geeks get busy a lot at their cons, too; they call ‘em con-quests. Dragon Con is horny fat girl heaven.

doloras July 6, 2009 at 5:34 pm

[re=355576]Paul Tardy[/re]: No, trannies are to the 21st century what gays were to the 20th. Furries are to the 21st century what nudists were to the 20th.

Suds McKenzie July 6, 2009 at 6:01 pm

He should have asked “Bubbles” for a comment.
