With men and women being more sensually frank with each other nowadays, it’s not unusual for a person to discover that their bed playmate has a sensual interest or two. Good sensual tips emphasize handling such revelations with proper care, especially as it is a sign of trust when a secret like this is shared. As long as the interest does not negatively impact member health (or general health, for that matter), and as long as a man has an appropriate comfort level in engaging in play, this can often become as much fun for the man as for his partner. One interest that tends to be more common among women but which some men may find enjoyable is a focus on "the furry."
By "furry," a woman doesn’t usually mean the generous thatch of hair that covers the body of her hirsute lover (although that hair often does come into play during furry activities). "Furry" refers to an anthropomorphic animal with human characteristics - like Bugs Bunny, for example, or many of the characters in certain Japanese manga.
Furry fandom refers to that group of people who are especially drawn to these lovable furry characters. For most, the fondness is not necessarily sensual in nature. They simply respond to something about these characters that touches or engages them. Often furry fans like to engage in cosplay (that is, dressing up like favorite characters) and may also enjoy role playing (actually pretending to be those characters).
For some people, however, the attraction does have a distinctly sensual cast to it. Furry fans who enjoy fantasizing about furries in sensual situations, viewing adult videos about them or having sensual activity with other fans dressed up as furries are said to be "yiffing."
If a man who is not a part of the furry culture finds that his partner is interested in furries sensually, he may be asked to join her in her interest. If this falls within his comfort level, there are several ways in which he may participate.
- Indulging her cosplay or role play. The partner may want to pretend to be one of her favorite furry characters while they have sensual activity. This may simply require the man to refer to her by the right name and to know enough about the character to respond appropriately to things she says. It may also involve her wearing some furry-related outfit - perhaps cat ears, say, or a faux-fur bra.
- Joining her role play. Alternatively, the partner may want the man to pretend to be a furry. Some men find this liberating. For example, they may enjoy stamping their feet like a horse and whinnying aggressively as they engage in coupling and find that it helps them release their inner animal.
- Joining her in cosplay as well. A man may also be asked (or opt on his own) to join her in the cosplay department while they are being intimate in bed. Wearing a bull’s head or tiger paw gloves may bring a different dimension to his sensual experience.
The most important point about furry play - and member health - is that a person must feel comfortable participating. A man who is willing may still want to ease into things and take his time to find out just what works for him. Being honest and open about these things, but in a caring manner, is crucial in any kind of relationship.
Among other valuable sensual tips: just because a man is getting all furry doesn’t mean his member health should be animalistic. Treat the member like a man, not an animal, and regularly apply a top notch member health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . Be sure the crème includes vitamins A and C. Vitamin A is well known for its antibacterial properties, which fight unwanted manhood odor. (A musky animal scent is one thing; rank odor is another.) And vitamin C is a key component of collagen, the tissue in the body that gives member skin its tone and elasticity.
