Almost Outing Yourself

Postby chewchulainn » Fri Feb 09, 2024 10:18 am

Interested to hear about moments where you’ve caught yourself talking about vore adjacent stuff with non-vorephiles, and only realizing it when the other person has reacted weirded out.

For example- I really love biology and zoology, and love basing characters off of animals, whether it’s for vore content or non-fetish content. Because I’m a vore-loving fuck though, I can’t help getting more excited or invested when learning details about an animal’s dietary habits. I remember talking with some friends about a snail-based character I’d made, before excitedly sharing the fact that some snails are able to survive the digestive tract of birds and wind up using it as a means of travel. Suffice to say, they were not as fascinated by this fact as I was ^^’ another time, I was making a duo of fireflies who were in a relationship ship, and while researching learned that there’s a species of firefly where the females will eat the males of a different species in order to make themselves taste bad to predators. I was instantly excited to make the couple based on those two different species, in order to add a bit of spice and forbidden love to the dynamic, but when I shared this fact with my friend they were weirded out by my excitement and I quickly had to backtrack and try to reframe my interest.

Anyone else have moments like this, where they just kind of… forget that the stuff they’re talking about is probably still weird to outsiders, even if it’s not Inherently vore related?

A long time ago, when I was just a little lad, I had an incident like that. I had that classic interest in dinosaurs and their bellies. I'm sure someone on here remembers the Dinotopia picture books with the great art they had. Anyway, I remember professing to another kid at the time that it would be super interesting to be swallowed by a Brachiosaurus. I think this kid was a bit older, and he looked at me like I was insane. He pointed out that stomachs are full of puke, and it would be disgusting and painful and you would quickly suffocate.

I was mortified. It's one of those incidents that you look back on and cringe, and then eventually look back on and laugh and cringe at the same time. Now I think it was a useful calibration moment. It was a reminder that the fantasy is indeed a fantasy, where elements of reality are ignored. A normie who doesn't have those almost built-in constraints in their conception of vore scenarios simply doesn't feel the appeal.

It was only when I talked about it with a friend of mine when I was a teen. It involved Dark Magician Girl as a pred. He thought it was gross. Then I saw how scarce it was on the internet. It was then I knew that vore was a very niche thing not to be discussed with other "normal" people. Since then, I've taken care not to out myself to people IRL. Online is fine. Real life is forbidden.

Yes, although less specifically about digestives, and more that it leaks into my interests in biology. While working on a piece of world building, I ended up finding myself working quite hard on designing an anatomically-accurate physiology, which is almost certainly more detailed than most would want or expect it to be.

Going by the "suspiciously detailed" rule when it comes to art, someone could probably go over my world building, and find out that I'm weirdly obsessed and particular about insides and anatomy. I'm almost certain that friends who've also had a look at my world building either suspect something, or are being intentionally ignorant, because unexpectedly finding out a friend's fetishes is a bit on the weird side.

Most of my friends don't tend to look at an alien species and go "I wonder how their insides work", at the very least.

The closest that I ever came was when I was discussing Dragon Ball Z with some coworkers. I'm really into Absorption/merging, and I flat out said that DBZ was super gay because of all the absorption/merging. They didn't understand what I meant until I was like "They're literally sharing the body with another dude." At which point they seemed to understand what I was talking about. Even crossing that gap was a bit dangerous, never even got close to the vore side of that equation.

For sure. Moments like that have definitely helped me keep myself in check moving forward haha, and given me a better sense of limits. My own experiences I always found embarrassing because I was so enraptured by the knowledge I'd learned, I failed to take into account that a large reason WHY I was fascinated was because of my interest in vore, and it was only after I'd already shared these facts that I made the connection haha. Now I'm a lot better at gauging when something appeals to me for fetishy reasons, and making sure not to overshare with people I don't think would be interested.

So I purposely avoid making monsters with bite and swallow attacks after one incident when running dnd with my friends after one of them made a vore joke. This resulted in a good three to four minute joke fest of the shit we have all seen. Still awkward as fuck, so I have just have set a hard rule to avoid it. To be fair I didn't make the scene in anyway sexual so it wasn't like they thought I was into it, just really god damn awkward.

Not sure for me other than a time back when was an elementary student, back before I even knew or was even aware of 'vore' being a thing, let alone even fetishes/kinks as a whole were. Aside from some other things remember seeing back then, I remember at recess there were a few times I told my friend that we'd pretend haven't been eaten by Leia and flying our tiny ships in her body (or she was massive, not sure).

Or maybe this other time when stayed over at another friend's place and we stayed in these sleeping bags that made us look like peas in a pod. That time I remember just the food comparison, not making any other joke or comparison to some giant girl (likely a sailor scout if so) compared to us coming along and eating me/us.

Otherwise can't think of any other incidents myself.

Yeah, I accidentally told a very untrustworthy person that I was into vore when I was young-ish. I didn't get why I liked it or why it was taboo, he didn't understand, and in the end, it dawned on me later that I made a massive mistake. So, I had to come up with this total gaslight explanation which was that I didn't really trust him at the time and that I occasionally fed him specific lies to see if they'd come back to me from other people, indicating that he was gossiping about my private life. He would go on to gossip and lie about me, ruining a few relationships and seriously hurting me, but not about the vore. I am very lucky he either believed me or forgot. That was my closest call besides accidentally opening Twitter and being on the wrong account. Thank God for low brightness.
Always either cold or tired. Unsure whether to blame the phenomenon on vorarephilia or not. Probably looking into it too much.

Not... Really? It might be because I'm a young millenial/old gen Z, but vorarephilia is known among my peers to be a harmless kink that people have, like hair-pulling and feet. My friend group knows I'm into it, and they don't really care, aside from the occasional wink-nudge jokes when incidental vore scenes happen in something we're watching/playing together.

This brightened my day. I have a similar dynamic with some online friends of mine.

People with kinks... are still people, not lewd woodland creatures whose entire personality revolves around being "weirdos" or "degenerates".

Of course, I'd still be waay more careful about dropping mentions of kinks with IRL people than online friends, and even with the latter it requires trust.

That’s really nice to hear! I’m glad you’ve got a supportive friend group when it comes to that stuff. At this point in my life I’ve found myself with friends who are understanding of the kink even if they don’t like it themselves, and are supportive and we joke about it with each other. The events I described in the starting post happened a good ten or so years ago, and were more scenarios where I myself failed to realize my interest in certain topics was informed by vore and non vorephiles probably didn’t find my fun facts quite as fun haha.

Well besides the time I accidentally posted a drawing on the wrong social media account and deleted it 30 seconds later... I don't recall any incidents, I was always quite private with what I enjoyed as a kid and it was not a huge thing at all for me at the time. Now, I have rl friends who know and don't mind; although I'd also not be surprised if they forgot about it amidst discussion of everyone else's fetishes and kinks.

About a few months ago I was with my partner and they said. "If they don't have the cherry cream slushy then what would you like?" and I as the idiot said "The cashier" and realizing I said that I was very embarrassed but they just laughed and said, "be serious". I don't know if they understood me or not however they have been saying "I'll eat you" a lot when someone annoys them as a joke. And one time they said "I'll eat you and not in the hot way... well someone may find that hot" and then looked at me. So I don't know if they know or not, but either way, they still love me and I am not bringing it up if they ask about it lol.

They might suspect, but the phrase could also be interpreted in the non-vore way.

As a kid, I use to to say “eat you” a lot to people, half insult really. This was before I found myself deep driving into the topic of vore. As of right now though I say vore, or say other things that raises eyebrows. But since I am seem as a weird person, people just think of it as a quirk. The only person who might be suspicious is one my friends, in which I keep bringing it up randomly, or get detailed when the topic of consumption comes up.

it helps having friends irl that you can discuss vore with.
kinda empties the ideas out of your head so you can fit the normal stuff in there.

though i have creeped out till workers time to time when i shut my brain off out of habit.

when you're part of a superhero community you can get away with saying some sussy stuff as long as it's mild.
