Being “open” about loving vore.

Postby 157and493 » Mon Jan 07, 2019 3:02 am

It would seem that the vast majority of people who are into vore tend to keep that fact a secret, which is of course understandable. However, I am actually someone that is incredibly open about my sexual preferences and all of my friends and family know how much I love vore. It has gotten to the point where we even joke about it constantly, for example, one time my friend showed me a picture of an actress and asked me if I thought she was attractive, and my response was: “I am not sure, I would have to see what the inside of her stomach looks like before I could make a definitive judgement.” and we both laughed.

I was wondering if there is anyone else out there that is like this.

I'm open about it with my inner circle of friends. Well, with my two inner circles really, consider my INNER circle would be my poly-cule. :gulp:

Well, I'd say it really depends on the people around each person. Some might be more acceptant, and some might not be. And vore aint exactly one of the more "normal" kinks, so... aint easy to know if others would be ok with it or if they might Think you're crazy cause of it.
For me, I dont mention vore to people unless im either rather Close friends with them, or they already know about it. I wouldnt tell my family about it, as they dont really know of my sexual preferences. I havent seen a reason for them to do so.

Girlfriend and I are hopelessly into vore. Don’t shame eachother for it, obviously, so we wind up feeling very free to talk openly about it around even friends. So far we haven’t really caught any negativity from anyone about it. Honestly we’ve considered wearing matching ‘this bitch loves vore’ shirts to a con, just to see what reactions we get.

I feel like it’s got a lot of stigma around it, so it makes sense to stay private, but if you have the freedom to not care, take advantage of it. It feels good.

I thought he was gonna end up telling us about his anal vore drawings and his disappointed family. Good for you though, I mean, if it works out, all is well.

Sounds kinda nice to have people in your life know about and accept it.
I keep it a big secret from everyone in my life, because I know my family would never understand it and find it very weird.
My friends have actively bashed and talked shit about "weird" fetishes, especially vore and the related, while I was present. I knew they were indirectly talking about me, but they have no idea.
Sometimes I wonder what their reaction would be if I told them.

my family are the type of people who would think its wrong of me to watch normal porn. I love them but there is no way in hell they will ever find out about this side of me. Glad to hear some people on here can be open about it IRL but that is unfortunately not me.

I'm past the point of sharing anything with my family. They're annoyingly judgemental about small shit that doesnt matter and I'm sure their brains cant even comprehend something like vore, so that's definitely off the table.

A couple old friends know, and in turn I know what their own fetishes are, but it's not the sort of knowledge that makes for any interesting conversation since our fetishes are different.

Most of my friends could probably handle it, but going through the hoops and listening to their dismissive laughs before they mostly forget about it isnt really worth it for any reason, either.

My family wouldn't understand. In fact they'd probably be quite alarmed, because anything that doesn't fall into their narrow world view they consider to be bad. I love them dearly but that's unfortunately how they are.

My friends make fun of vore on the regular, so sharing it with them is out of the picture as well. They have no idea it's my chief kink and I've got no desire to tell them.

I did try opening up to a forum group a long time ago when someone else broached the subject, and it went... not horribly... but not that well either. Since then it seems to have been mostly forgotten and I think it's best I leave it that way.

I really have no choice but to keep it a secret. I struggle enough opening up about other more mundane things, so I'm going to keep this particular secret on lockdown for the foreseeable future.

Was it just a coincidence you both were into it? Or were you looking for someone with that shared voracious interest?
I told my family I have a fetish, just not what it was. So that's like a stepping stone. But it hasn't really come up much besides talking about whether or not the person I'm with is accepting about it or not. Overall they're supportive about it. But it is very scary to talk about it openly for fear of the stigma. I honestly have no interest in telling my friends about it. It's not like we sit around and talk about what turns us on or our sexual exploits. But I would imagine them not really caring all that much. Think about it in terms of how invested you are with someone. What I would worry about is if you told your friends and then they end up telling other people in passing. The likelihood of a secret getting out increases exponentially with every nth person that knows. Then when too many people know you may become labeled and prejudged.

I'm open about it with everyone but family if the topic of fetishes comes up.

Why not my family? It's none of their damn business.

First off, that joke with your friend is hilarious.

I like to keep a lot of these things an open secret, simply because they're such a big part of my life that to keep making excuses for them would just make me nuts. I'm also generally sex-positive, so I make a conscious effort not to be ashamed of it to encourage other people to not be ashamed of their own sex lives either. However, I also realize there's a time and place for everything, and if I talk about it with other people, I have to do it tactfully.

My parents always knew I had a weird obsession with stomachs so they give me my space about it, for the most part. If they don't understand some art piece I show them (my mother is an artist, so I always ask her for feedback), they usually ask "is this a kink thing?" It's actually helped me learn how to explain it objectively.

I have never let anyone intentionally know about it. My parents may know since they can find out what kind of sites have been visited on their plan from their internet service provider, and they have done that kind of thing before. If they do know then they thankfully don't bring it up. I wouldn't want my family to know since it might change how they look at me. Also I can imagine some cringe inducing moments that might happen because of it.

I think it's pretty neat that you can be open about it and your friends and family are accepting of it. That takes a lot of courage and open minded people. I love the idea of being that open and honest but I don't think I'll ever become public about that. You can always tell people about it later but once it's out there, it's out there. I can't imagine that it would help my reputation.

I cannot comphrehend a family dynamic where you would know about other family members fetishes. No offence to those who have disclosed this sort of thing to family, but just... Absolutely no way would I talk about anything like this with my family. Ever.

A couple of close friends know. And it was probably about a decade ago that it was brought up. Its been brought up maybe twice since and they're not really bothered overall...

In relationships, I'm currently single but would tell a future GF, absolutely. And have done in the past. It's really not that big a deal, and now that I'm getting on and am now in my 30s, if I meet someone else and a weird fantasy kink is an actual dealbreaker from their end, well- that's their problem, frankly. Because goodness me, however weird vore is objectively, there's far worse baggage you can bring to a relationship than having this silly thing.

i honestly don't understand why people are so dead-set on telling their family about their vore kink. i've never told my family and never will, not even for shame purposes but just... fetishes is not the kind of thing i talk about with my family at all

a few friends know and they're fine with it because i only tell people i'm pretty damn sure will be chill with it, so that works out

It's not like being gay or whatever, it's some weird kinky shit you masturabte to. Why the hell would you want your family or friends to know what you masturbate to? It just seems like an unnecessary and inappropriate thing to share. The only people that know are friends I have met through vore, and I'd like to keep it that way.

I don't tell them about vore not because they won't accept it, but because they don't need to know. There's other aspects of me that would scare people far worse than vore that my immediate family and a few friends know about and they're cool with it.

Well, my family really has no business knowing, nor do my friends, but I've told a few crushes once we got close.
My brother knows I have a giantess fetish, but I've withheld the full story.

I don't want to know what my dad beats his meat to.
I'd rather not know the intimate details of what get's my sister wet
I don't go looking through my mom's internet history to figure out what makes her nipples hard.
I sure as hell don't even want to fathom what my grandmother fantasizes about when the mood takes her.

I assume they'd rather not know what is in my wank bank.

Out of courtesy I don't go out of my way to tell them.

It's not a closely held secret, but it's more like they'd be uncomfortable if I started telling them the lewd crude details of what gets my rocks off. If they wanted to know maybe I'd tell them, after warning them they'd be most likely disgusted.

Personally I am not outright secretive about it, but I also realize that it can be upsetting or awkward or uncomfortable to hear about such a weird and often disgusting fetish. So I keep the fetish talk mostly to forums like this rather than sharing it with friends and family. There are exceptions but it's based on the individual and what they are comfortable with. Beyond that I'd rather keep my fetish a fetish rather than an identity or something big and defining like that so I try not to adopt the label of voreophile too adamantly.
