Furries: They're Not All About Kinky Sex

A woman furry gives us the inside scoop on furries—and the sexual misconceptions about them.
This past weekend I landed, quite by accident, in the middle of Anthrocon 2010 -- the annual conference at which the whole Furry Fandom convenes. 
 
It was a happy accident: I happened to be at a wedding in Pittsburgh, and our flagging after-party sure roared to life when a half-dozen costume-clad furries lumbered in. I took a Little Red Riding Hood–esque picture with a big, bad wolf -- who, underneath all that plush, is a vet. My friends mugged with a ... black sheep. 
 
And, on the drive home, I couldn't help telling my sister all about the rather surreal scene -- half the lobby was wearing black tie, the other half tails -- as in, fuzzy ones that trailed out of the back of their pants.
 
"That," she said, "is the weirdest thing I've ever heard."
 
It's the reaction a lot of people have when confronted with furries, who, by the way, have their own Wikipedia page, online dating site (Pounced.org, where you post a photo and an avatar), and who, in recent years, have received a lion's share -- pun intended -- of media coverage. So far Tyra Banks, Vanity Fair and MTV have all covered the fandom.
