A sense of humor

Postby Lightness0001 » Fri Aug 11, 2017 3:56 pm

I thought this would be a funny topic to mull over.

Basically, I was wondering if anyone else happens to have a rather funny (or it could be called twisted/dark, depending on your views towards digestion :p) sense of humor in regards to vore. Like for instance, a lot of my favorite stuff tends to involve accidental/unaware vore, or maybe unwilling preds, tricking prey, etc. Of course, I'm always down for just vore itself, but providing a rather funny situation can just make it all the better.

So yeah! Humorous vore, yea or nay?

I like funny scenarios that allow the personalities of the characters to distinguish the story from a lot of others that are less developed. I also like to think of various ways typical scenarios for these stories can be deconstructed and played with. My imagination can go to some dark places, especially when I think about what it would take to make the scene "realistic" or when I try to get into the heads of the kind of people who would actually commit to these actions.

I am still entertaining the idea of making a downright funny vore story.

It would involve a silly scenario with larger than life characters. Nothing too flashy, just some light hearted humour in the dialogue and maybe some quirk in the descriptions.

I like the idea of comedy full tour a lot in particular. I think pred prey interaction could be very funny if done well. Hell, I knew a girl years back who said full tour would be "a laugh" to do . Her words not mine!

Oh yes, I love doing this (though I don't do it nearly enough). There's a lot of different sorts of 'cliches' that have popped up in vore stories over and over, so it's fun to twist that around.

Mmm, I`m not really one for funny vore stuff. I do a lot of unwilling vore, and that has a lot of horror themes and overall themes of general fear or terror, and when I occasionally do willing vore, it`s usually in a sexual manner. I`m very dark when it comes to my vore stuff. I just don`t really see vore as funny, but I do respect that some people have a better sense of humor than me and can see it that way.

Sad and horrifying is the other extreme of my taste. There's just so much potential for cruelty and inhumanity if society really had to deal with this kind of absurdity as a common occurrence or worse, as a necessity for everyone. What model of civilization would be necessary to both maintain peace and provide for the public when both priorities require willful neglect of the other to be fulfilled; assuming the species that builds these societies can construct it competently. What are the psychological commonalities of such a world? Is it possible to be a guiltless person if you not only kill others in one of the most dehumanizing ways you can, but the whole species has evolved to take contentment in it? Just how selective is empathy when everyone is your potential prey and predator? Vore stories can also be great at building an atmosphere full of dread, the most primal of fears never receding because of it's vague inevitability. Even willing vore can be tragic in a creative mindset. There is something that could be really sad about people needing to repress their very nature and submit to the most naturally repulsive defeat in order to feel loved or a sense of belonging.

I think it's a mistake to think that the situation is what makes the comedy. In reality, comedy in fiction is always about the characters. Create characters that are genuinely funny, charming and likeable, and they'll continue to be funny in any scenario you put them in.

I totally agree, this is a concept I`ve examined somewhat in my own works, but something like this is the exact reason I don`t necessarily see any comedy in vore. Let`s face it, if vore was real, the world would be a pretty miserable and terrifying place. It would likely be some kind of twisted dystopia, a place where tyranny would have to exist to preserve order, but also being incredibly ironic as well in the fact that they also participate in the horrific practice. You can imagine life from a person`s point of view in that world, constantly terrified of being eaten while having to prey upon others themselves. It`s quite a sad fate. I also agree with what you mentioned about willing vore being tragic, it can also come from people who are suicidal or are just too traumatized by the events of the world they`re living in that they can no longer handle it, and so resign to death in order to escape that existence. While vore may be a simple fetish for a lot of people, it also presents a lot of heavy questions upon looking deeper, such as political, societal, and psychological implications, and it sets up a lot of unique elements for speculative fiction.

Situations can definitely make the comedy. No specific example, but if you were to take for instance, a serious character and toss them into an absurd situation, the sheer contrast alone is going to generate comedy. So to me, with vore here, trying to put realistic characters in this ridiculous situation generates some humor in/of itself.

Hmmm I like amused pred but I don't remember seeing any funny vore somehow. I guess it could be nice.

Seeing how vore is usually used for comedic effect in cartoons (Uh-oh! Mouse got ate by cat! Hijinks!) it's not much of a stretch to make proper vore material funny as well. I try to insert little charatcer based jokes or even slapstick in a lot iof my vore stories. Just makes the whole thing more fun to write and hopefully read. Can also help to make characters more likeable not to mention memorable.

And a comedic vibe is not unusual for RL porn either. There are countless porn parodies of hollywood movies. This one still makes me laugh. Too many puns. Also, Oglaf. Nuff said.

So much this.

When vore goes for humor, I tend to get way less picky though. Humor is also good for any time of the day and any day of the week unlike erotica.

I love good comedy in vore, it's not always easy to find, but it's always nice to see. Dragga used to do a bit, but I don't know many artist who make it a thing to put a lot of funny in.

Actually if anyone has any suggestions for real funny stuff I'd love to hear it.

I agree. A situation definitely leads itself to comedy. As you say, putting pretty much any character in a comic situation that is uncomfortable to them, and milking this comic element is an extremely important aspect of comedy writing. Whole shows are made around the concept.

Using a famous example of the sort of thing you are talking about...

"Boring conversation anyway" doesn't exactly jump out as a witty or funny line when isolated. Especially when used by the roguish tough guy character.

But because Han Solo has just spent a minute pretending to be a inferior stormtrooper talking to his boss over the radio, his ineptitude in trying to play that role combined with his panic at the situation while the guy on the other end of the line gets increasingly suspicious is what makes it an amazing punchline.

The character uttered the line, but the situation made it a comic one liner.

Although I am very much a fan of humor in my literary and visual works, I am of the opinion that fetish work is generally more difficult to have "humor" in, considering the usual purpose of the work is for sexual gratification in some form. And usually, humor somewhat conflicts with that.Its a really hard thing to laugh and orgasm at the same time, really.

I think its also important to distinguish between humorous and amusing. I think its very easy to be amusing; vore is at its core preposterous and lends itself to many silly/funny situations quite well, and some funny characters to some extent. But being humorous is another, especially difficult when considering most works involve digestion/fatal and other forms of murder. I think many of these situations are amusing, and might get a chuckle, but very rarely do I ever burst out laughing or think of them as truly humorous. Even the non-fatal works often focus on the pleasure aspect, and their situational irony/humor is often amusing but rarely treads into focusing on the humor.

Thus, most are amusing, but not humorous. Although I think when creating a comedic piece involving vore is the priority, I think it can be done, and probably already has (although few come to mind).

And of course, everyone has their own sense of humor. So what I find amusing might be drop-dead hilarious to another. So... *shrugs*

Well you're not trying to make people laugh & orgasm at the exact same moment. It's usually first a joke then sex then another joke then sex again. It creates a mood curve like an amplitude of funny & sexy. I already gave porn parodies as an example, Cheers is another good example of mixing funny & sexy in equal measure. Maybe not an outright kneeslapper but can still give you an audible chuckle while managing to be effectively arousing. Suppose it falls more into the amusing category you spoke of.

That's a excellent point I failed to really consider.
