Description

Furverts

Birds do it, bees do it, but no one does it like furries do it. Long an underground cult phenomenon, furriespeople who dress up in furry animal costumes and role playhave gone global, holding conventions where furries from around the world can meet and mingle. Photographer Michael Cogliantry captures the kinky, intimate side of the furry subculturean elephant and a donkey, a chicken and a fox, caught in flagrante delicto. The playful board-book format opens with a peek-a-boo ring of fur on the cover, inviting the reader into the "illicit" and hysterically funny world of furverts.

I just don't get it furries are more than dressing up in fursuits.. It goes a lot deeper than that.. The furry community is a rich and vibrant culture that shouldn't be made fun of just because it's different...This book give people the wrong idea about furries...

Humorous pairings that transcend furries

Humorous pairings that transcend furries

I find the photos in the book to be funny, not just because they are of animals in sex positions, but also because of the specific animals in the pairings. The Wolf and the Sheep, the Dog and Cat, and especially the Elephant and Donkey (a good election year pose). This isn't some in-depth social examination of anthropomorphism, it's a funny photographic exercise. If it was meant to poke ridicule at the Furry community it would have been called Furries Behaving Badly or something like that.

Great sense of humor!

Well the first part of that paragraph is true but the second half I find hard to believe. In my ten years I have never seen costumes like this. Are the elephant and donkey refugees from election season? All we have here is twelve pictures of people in store-bought costumes, bad ones. It is not playful, it is insulting. It is dishonest and Mr Cogliantry should be ashamed of himself for stooping so low.

Furry, and award-winning photographer.

Demeaning \"art\" for fun and profit.

Let's say you enjoy Star Trek. A lot of people do, just regular people like you and me. Some might be a bit geeky, but on the whole are good people with friends and jobs. Then someone mentions "Trekkies", people who dress up weird and have no social skills. Now imagine the Comic Book Guy from The SImpsons. Every tv show, every group of enthusiasts are going to have a couple of weirdos in their bunch who give the regular guys a bad name. Now imagine that a photographer dressed his friends (who don't watch Star Trek) up as Klingons, put them in sexually compromising positions, took photos, and published a book entitled, "This is Star Trek." Now let's pretend very few people had ever heard of Star Trek, but their first impression was this book. If you were a regular guy who liked Star Trek and saw this book, wouldn't you feel insulted? This is exactly what's happening here. "Furries" are geeks who like the idea of animal-people. Bugs Bunny, werewolves, make-believe creatures, whatever. And we've got some embarassing members of humanity in our ranks, like every other group of enthusiasts. Mr. Cogliantry hired some people and some cheap-looking costumes and is basically exploiting our reputation for his own profit. There's no artistic integrity here. Save your money. Go to the photography section of a bookstore, and buy something by a real photographer who's got a sense of taste, ethics and aesthetics. And I guarantee the best books will have more than 24 pages.
