Other Paraphilias

Last updated 10 November 2021

These resources are for paraphiles other than MAPs – zoosexuals (zoophiles), necrophiles, erotophonophiles, etc. Some of these resources may contain anti-MAP attitudes or perpetuate stigma against MAPs. Use these resources at your own discretion. If you have any suggestions for this article, please contact us!

It's important to remember that paraphilias are part of sexuality. Paraphilias are not mental illnesses.

Open MAP Community (onion) welcomes all paraphiles who are also MAPs or MAP allies. Freak.university (onion) and Nnia.space are fediverse instances that welcome all paraphiles.

Safety

Follow your local laws, and never engage in coercive, forceful or otherwise unconsensual sexual activity with a non-human animal. Sexual activity between humans and non-humans carries a risk of some infectious diseases.

ZETA principles

The ZETA principles are widely accepted guidelines for the ethical treatment of animals by zoosexuals developed by Zoophiles for Ethical Treatment of Animals. Not all zoosexuals believe in or abide by the ZETA principles. These ZETA principles were adapted slightly to suit OMC's style.
