Transformation fetish

Postby Neuroexplorer » Mon Dec 24, 2012 7:01 pm

I love animal/monster transformation stories since I was a little girl, when I was a teenager I started to get aroused by them, my 'sexual' fantasies never involved sex, I have slowly added it to feel somewhat normal without success, because I can't get turned by porn or romance, the only thing that works a bit is bdsm, but sometimes I find it disgusting.
I didn't know this was a fetish until some days ago. I'm trying to find an online community and some material, I have found http://www.transfur.com/ but I don't like furries and happy transformations, I like the involuntary ones, like the greek stories were people were transformed in punishment.

I had exactly the same thing when I was a child, though I'm into other fetishes now (I'm 19). Reading or seeing stories of people turning to animals or switching genders used to turn me on a lot. Same as you, I've never been turned on by representations of regular sex, like porn. Don't know if because I've never had sex or because I'm just only affected by my fetishes, like many paraphiliacs are.

Yeah totally, I think the feeling of humiliation is a big part of it. Only forced transformations were actually arousing to me.

Don't worry, you are not alone. It is a naturally occuring fetish. Countless others and myself are all in the same weird little boat. I was a little boy when I first started getting arroused at the ideao being turned into an animal. At 6 I saw pinochio, and the donkey transformation gave me an errection. Later, ninja turtles, aladin, werewolf movies, willow, witches, and all the other holy grails of our kink provided the same frustrating response. I am 28 now, and didn't have the internet until I was in middle school. I was very relieved to see that there was a very large community of scavengers and artists of transformation materials. Up until then, I felt very broken, it wasn't like you could talk about it. At least people know what being gay is, you can't really come out about it because it just confuses people. It is also super frustrating because no matter how much you try, you can't actually live out your fetish of physically being turned into an animal against your will.

I did however, around 23 find the BDSM community. I have found that roleplay and costumes have help satisfy some of that never ending thirst. I have found acceptance, self confidence and a pretty wild social life. I was very lonely when I was trying to supress it, and now that I have embraced it, I have had quite a few great long term relationships with honest to god fetish models. I had no idea how well the concepts and core psychology of a "sexy witch turns me into her pet dog against my will and makes me hump myself stupid on her boot" would be embraced and actually arouse such smart and sexy women. In this regard, Fetlife.com is a great resource to find accepting people and build a healthy, all-be-it weird social life. It is like facebook for fetishists and can be used to find local happy hours and parties in your area. Highly recomdend for self esteem.

I have noticed a large number of reoccuring tropes about this fetish througout the lifetime of introspection I have done on it.

It is a punishment, being a victim is arrousing, and in all honesty it feels like an analogy to dying. The most arrousing part is when you're humanity and mind slip away into an animal. Sort of like circling a drain.

The physical changes are just as important. When you have this fetish, you want to see your bones breaking and fur growing. Typically I imagine it bathed in ecstasy rather than pain.

Animal figures are arrousing, and often involve other animals mounting you, or being mounted yourself. I have never had the urge to commity beastiality in real life, but in the fantasy it is there. It makes you feel more victimized, and enhances the humiliation and loss of control aspects. Most of the time it is people transforming and mating together.

It is typically a male fetish. Out of all the fetishists on fetlife who list Transformation as a kink, or puppy play, 3/4ths are Male. I have no idea why, maybe it is similar to transvestitism. Although all the woman I have played with have embraced and found novelty in it, I have only met two in real life who actually had it occur naturally. Same deal, starts out young, victimized, obsess about physical changes. But it just seems so uncommon in women and I have no idea why.

Involuntary transformation fantasies are not necessarily more common to men than women. The reason that may be a perception from individuals in support groups may be simply that men feel more need for support groups to deal with it. Men are socially conditioned to value self-control
more than women are for the obvious reason that men who lack self-control are astronomically
more likely than women to end up in prison. Women tend to be more accepting of not being in
complete control of themselves, which of course none of us are. We all grow old and die which
as was pointed out is also an involuntary transformation. In terms of evolutionary biology we all
actually had ancestors who were closer to chimpanzees, mice, lizards, and fish than human and
much of our DNA and neurosensory system reflects that. Being transformed from human into an
animal may be appealing because animals are freer of the expectations and responsibilities of
humans and the Hindu philosophy speculates that humans may be reincarnated as animals after
the death of their human bodies as a form of penance to atone for sins. Although I'm not a Hindu
myself, hundreds of millions of people in India seem to find that sort of view beneficial to imagine.

The whole problem with the "Men being conditioned to be in control" theory is the young age that it manifests. At 6 years old there are no societal expectations to condition or cause manifestation of the fetish. True it does integrate later in life, but the core fetishisitc elements are the physical changes taking place.

Like most of you, I have the same thing. I'm a teen and I have tried many times to be aroused by woman. Then, I thought I might be gay, but very soon I realised that was also not the case. I remembered at a young age when I watched Lord of the rings when Frodo got captured by Shelob, the thought of being trapped in webs turned me on. Then I went on to be aroused by many other things like latex, clothes, oil, transformations and even shoes and hairstyles. I am only slightly turned on by boobs and vaginas, but no where near as much as other things.

Also a teen here with the exact same feelings as mentioned in the posts above. Most of all I just really want to understand why I feel this way. I get turned on by women easily enough but I feel that also this fetish is increasingly making it harder and harder for me to connect with girls in a normal way.

I'm that way as well. I'm female, but was never as turned on by human anatomy as much as I was by watching films in which a character underwent a bodily transformation against his will (usually the character's male, except with some episodes of Disney's Aladdin TV series). There were SO many shows that featured that sort of thing: Shaggy Dog, Teen Wolf, that Halloween show in which a girl was trapped in her mask that became permanently attached to her face, the afternoon cartoon specials Darkwing Duck, Aladdin and Batman had a lot of character transformation episodes. The first time I can remember feeling turned on by that sort of thing was when I was maybe 5 and saw a Superman TV episode in which a witch or someone-or-other took away his face and I felt a sudden urge to pee but my bladder wasn't full at all. (I didn't realize this was an arousal response until I was much older.) Given how many shows featured that stuff, I would've expected more people to be out there with "transformation fetishes" -- or at least for there to be some specific name for it. This website at PsychCentral was the first to appear as a Google result for "transformation fetish" but the exact term for it doesn't seem to be defined anywhere. A lot of results showed gender transformation fetishes, but that category was too specific. I did come across a Tumblr blog, http://consciousobject.tumblr.com/ that seems to "get it". Other than that, there are sites themed around special effects makeup, but not quite so fetish-oriented. But there doesn't seem to be much data out there regarding how rare or popular this apparently yet-to-be-officially-named fetish is. I figured it may be a subcategory of bondage (which it probably is), but those ropes and handcuffs in general didn't really seem to get it right. It's kind of troubling because there was no way for me to articulate such a thing to past relationship partners. (Unlike, say, the LGBT community that has a whole lexicon of terms.) Thanks for posting this message thread! Y'all's descriptions are spot-on. :idea:

The main thing when you have this fetish is to try and figure out why it arouses you. If the idea of being transformed into an animal against your will makes you feel powerless and that lack of power arouses you then this would be a humiliation fetish. I have numerous humiliation fetishes so I can definitely relate to how a transformation fetish would be a turn on. I think an aspect of humiliation fetishes is that humans spend a large part of their lives trying to be powerful in public and to prove to other people how in control they are and by always trying to maintain this power or public image of power it actually causes a great deal of anxiety so that the thought of losing all of your power is somehow relaxing/pleasurable.
