Self-Insertion and Vore

Permanent Linkby Chameleonette on Sat Feb 21, 2015 7:34 pm

So, I have a question, vore community.

I realize that self-insertion and prey/pred characters made after you is a really common and popular thing in vore. In fact, it’s apparently considered strange when you don’t do it.

My question is simple: What do you, personally, find in the appeal to self-insertion vore? Is it purely a sexual thing for you? Is it something more? How do you adapt to strangers viewing you in that manner?

I’m asking mainly because I’m trying to grow more comfortable with opening up about my interest in vore on a personal level. I feel like it might help me to connect better with other people in this fetish. But I’d like to hear, in your words, what the appeal and draw is to you, personally. I would assume basically that’s it’s mostly a sexual thing that people insert themselves into to get off, etc. But whether that’s it for you or if it’s something more, I’d like to hear your thoughts.

Thank you for your time!

I created a character to represent me and used him in a few vore scenarios, but it was never sexual. More than anything, it was for humor's sake. However, I've since grown a distaste for using him in anything vorish because it feels weird putting "me" into a fetish situation. Kind of like filming a porn video with myself in it and publishing it online or something.

Here's hoping you actually get some feedback from people who -do- enjoy it. XD

Thanks for the feedback! And honestly, that's similar to how I feel about it. And that's why I want to hear what other people think. I've had trouble connecting with people in this community, generally, and I wondered if it had something to do with not really relating myself to vore. Not just in a character sense, but even in the imaginative sense. Like, I don't think about being swallowed or anything like that. I've always put myself as unrelated to the scenes and watching from a fourth wall. That's the sort of perspective that I have. I've never even tried to imagine myself in any situations like that before.

So that's generally why I was asking. A lot of people can't even enjoy vore if they're not directly linked and I want to know why that is or what they find to be the big draw to it.

I don't like myself or my mouth, and my OC... myself, may be adorable and have a nice one, but I'm mainly prey, and I wouldn't want my little Gin to eat me. So I never do it. However, I have an OC that I adopted that I wouldn't mind eating me... er... Gin. But no one is willing to draw M/M nude, loving vore stuff. The few people I've asked I either can't afford or flat out told me no. One person said yes once but made a lot of trouble half way through.

Honestly, my gut reaction is that self-insertion is less common than you'd think... at least if we have the same definition of a self-insert. I see there being two different levels to it: the avatar character and the actual person. Personally, I'm pretty much incapable of having a screen name without it turning into a character unto itself; "Bitter" was initially supposed to be a relatively meaningless signifier. Eventually I commissioned a picture to use as my avatar because I was tired of using random existing characters that sort of but not quite represented what I wanted them to. Then that similarly meaningless avatar picture turned into a character, and that character, being who I was choosing to represent myself as, was more or less me in attitude-- assuming you took away all the inhibitions I'm buried in in real life. So vore scenes involving him are more or less the man behind the keyboard in a girlyboy-shaped suit. But I sort of doubt anyone would have guessed that without it having been said. Obviously, given that I do that kind of self-insert myself, I'm fine with it.

The other kind, which I consider separate, is where the character is actually literally the person themselves, and that... kind of creeps me out. I'm a strong advocate of the barrier between fiction and reality, and that crosses it in a way that I'm not comfortable with personally and sort of cringe to watch happen. I mean, if that's what people enjoy, more power to 'em and all. But I look at it askance.

One important thing that might modulate my opinion is that I tend to project onto some character in just about any story (whether that story's depicted in words or pictures). I don't tend to have a "third person perspective" when it comes to vore stories. So my tendency is to wind up inside the scene as someone, regardless of whether that character is one I designed for the purpose or not.

Does... does that help make sense of anything?

Sorry to hear that you've had some problems. Likewise, I relate to the prey side of things, but I've still never really imagined myself in that position before, not with characters I like or other people or anything.

Anyway, I've heard M/M stuff is insanely popular over on Fur Affinity. I imagine you could probably find some takers for commissions there?

Yeah, I mean it on both accounts, really. Both with the character/avatar creation that people kind of relate to themselves, and flat-out playing themselves or having personal-related vore fantasies that they talk about/fantasize about constantly. It's kind of hard to explain. I'd never want to play as just myself, especially with strangers or anything, but I feel like I'm disconnected from everything in such a way that's it's contributing to my issue of not really being able to connect to others in this fetish. I don't know if I should try to create a sort of avatar character or just try to be more personable, or what. I've always viewed vore through a third person perspective. And when people use first person perspective, it gets weird for me. And even if it's an avatar, I'll assume they're basically putting themselves into the avatar's shoes. If that makes any sense.

It feels like commonplace because 90% of the topics here are things like "what character do you want to swallow you", etc. And on tumblr, people go to the point of talking about how they would even do it in real life if they could (which is crossing WAY WAY WAAAAAAY too far over the line for me). I've also had anons come to my tumblr and ask me what my issues were with things like "teasing" asks, etc. And I don't know how much sense this is making, but it sends me for a loop trying to figure out where the lines should be and why other people have no lines at all. I want to find a happy, comfortable medium that's right for me, but I still don't even much understand the appeal of oneself involved in vore situations.

i do self insertion sensation wise. as in i like to imagine what it feels like when the character is eating and digesting large prey/meals. i do have a character who is very much like me personality wise but i cant say that i identify the character as me.

I like self-insertion because...

*thinks*

Yeah, it's pretty much a sexual thing for me. Gluttony is a very enticing, erotic thing for me, and when I'm the one consuming a beautiful prey and making her my fat... *shrugs* It turns me on greatly.
