Furry is a lifestyle and identity that for many has no sexual component. However, for some members of the furry community, their erotic identity is directly bound up with a furry alter ego or fursona. Their erotic fantasies are peopled by anthropomorphic animals, and impossible species/human hybrids and their sexy activities.
