Given that many negative stereotypes about the furry fandom suggest that it is a fetish or is predominantly associated with sexuality, we asked our sample of furry artists to estimate the percent of the content they produced which was erotic in nature. On average, they estimated that 25% of the work they produced was “adult,”1 and 17.6% said that more than half the content they produced was explicit, although 32.4% indicated that they produced artwork with no erotic content at all.2 75% of artists stated that they had been asked at least once to create something that they were not personally comfortable with and 22% said that they actually went through with it and produced the content despite their reservations. 67% of stated that they try to avoid such issues by posting a list of content that they would not produce (e.g., particular fetishes or themes.)3

The co-founders of Furscience are deep in planning mode… lots of new research and publications in the pipeline!
It's really awesome to know that we furries have some support outside of just ourselves to get a better understanding of our community. Shout out to @furscience and the great work they do for our community both internally and with the public. https://twitter.com/furscience/status/1454525649817948168
@FusEldar @NotGyro @TwettirD @BlueFolf @HIGHY3NA We estimate 500k and 1.5 million furries worldwide. We have neat data comparing the brony and furry fandoms. Brony samples aged every year, but furry samples didn’t. It could indicate younger furries are coming into the fandom yearly/sampling. Conventions seem to be growing, too.
Our Photographers are working their hardest to deliver the Fursuit Group Photo as soon as possible! For now, enjoy a sneak peak featuring our GoHs and Special Guest (@iPadunk, Zipper, @Furscience, and @UncleKage!)
