Vorarephilia (often shortened to vore) is a paraphilia characterized by the erotic desire to be consumed by, or sometimes to personally consume, another person or creature. Since vorarephilic fantasies cannot usually be acted out in reality, they are often expressed in stories or drawings shared on the Internet. The word vorarephilia is derived from the Latin vorare (to “swallow” or “devour”), and Ancient Greek φιλία (philía, “love“).
Would you find it sexually appealing to watch a cartoon rabbit be consumed by a sexy fox? What about a beautiful, curvaceous woman being swallowed by a giant snake? There are elements of bondage, sadism, foot fetish, furry fandom, macrophilia and more. And thanks to the internet, folks who are into vore can find each other and, perhaps most relevant to this discussion, porn.
I sat down with John, one of the premiere vore artists in the world (and a fan of the genre himself), to discuss what vore fetish means to him and to his community, what kind of person likes vore and what it means for him in his dating life. Prepare for one of the most engaging, intriguing conversations we’ve ever had on the show.
