Where all the male content at?

Postby AllSwalloAndNoChew » Thu May 09, 2019 5:47 pm

When it comes to stories and writing, it seems like a pretty balanced mixed of genders, sexuality and roles they play etc are out there.

Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough But when it comes to visual art, women seem a little over represented? This goes for porn art in general. Think of how easy it is to find simpe Pinups of Krystal or Samus vs male characters who are norally doing one or more of these girls rather than just in a sexy picture on their own e.g pics of Android 18, Raven, Zelda eating/ getting eaten are a dime a dozen. But its feels very rare to come across anything of Android 17, Future Trunks etc in either of these roles.

So why do you y'all think that is? There a plenty of people who'd want to see that type of content, but again it seems to kinda rare

Are female characters easier to project onto? Are there just more female characters who are more iconic? Is it the PATRIARCHY?!?! , or again. do I just suck at finding this stuff XD

This topic pop up roughly every few months. We are always going to have people wondering why there are not enough of something.

I guess the reason these questions keep popping up is that the answer doesn't really matter. People like to rant about things. And quantity also doesn't really matter. Nobody ever gets enough of what they like, if they get enough, they would be tired of it instead.

The actual answer for male is pretty obvious though. 80%+ of the visitors here are straight males. Vore is largely sexual for most people. So naturally they want to see female, and therefore artists tend to draw something more popular. Pretty straight forward.

Exception obviously exists, they always do, but exceptions are not enough to skew the ratio. If anything I'm surprised there are more than 1/5 of the content being male focused.

95% of my fantasies have female preds so I can't really complain with the site being dominated by female content but I do like the occasional male pred from time to time. Link from Zelda,Marth from Fire Emblem and Android 17 from DBZ are a few examples of the rare male characters I like as preds in my fantasies and would not mind seeing more content of.

>There are plenty of people who want to see that type of content
Yes there are, but I think more artists are getting commissioned to draw female content. Plus, if you draw female content, you'll gain a lot of clout and attention. It overshadows the male content here.

>Are there just more female characters who are more iconic?
Prolific female characters in fiction tend to be more sexualized than male characters. It's not there are necessarily more female characters, but they're treated differently and they get popular on straight-male-dominated websites like this one.

>Do I just suck at finding this stuff?
This website has a decent tagging system. You can blacklist tags you're not interested in and it makes it easier to sift through all the pictures/writing on here. There IS male content, it just takes a little extra digging to find it.

If you want more male material - all you need to do is add M or male to a search of Ekas, or have it commissioned from an artists that's willing to do male vore... or draw some of your own.

I know I'm more than willing to draw anything for the right price.

I get how you feel about males being less represented, but there is art out there. Eka's Portal does have a tagging system and there are artists who draw male preds. I happen to be one of them.

Just try some terms in the search like "male pred" "m/f" "m/m" "m/?" and you'll be able to find some of it. :D

This :3

If you think its rare now, then you should see the Portal back in the beginning. Male preds was really non existing back then. It was so rare someone actually made a thread about if it existed AT ALL.
My theory is that people like things that we are familiar with. The female body has for a really long time being something that "everyone should enjoy" (Maybe because female and male gay sexuality has for so long being suppressed) Think about it as mainstream media. Mainstream media knows what people are familiar with, and use it to get the big mass to like the new big movie, music, Series and so on.

So over the years the male body has become more and more familiar for the mass, and with that it will have more likes. Its nothing new and scary any more as it used to be (If you look at all kinds of media, male bodies seems to be more popular now then it was 10 years ago) It's pretty bad that we humans only live for so long...Because I believe that in 100 years the male body will get as many likes as the females. We are not there yet.

And one more thing. I could have really wrong on this one. It's just what I think could be an explanation.

And here ya go!

Uh. There's a mix of things going on here:

A) Straight guys making porn of women. Most people who look at porn are still, even now in 2019, straight dudes. Straight dudes wanna see women in sexual situations. So that's what they draw. To use an example from outside the Vore community - Shadman, one of the most prolific and controversial digital porn artists, is a straight dude, and straight dudes are his target audience.

B) Women making porn of characters they can project on. (Women outnumber men in making art, generally - even if IRL galleries and exhibits are biased toward male artists.) There are a lot - a LOT of female artist in the Vore community. Some of the biggest, most well known artists are female - and most of them draw women. There are exceptions; immortal_food is female but draws male preds, for example - but more women seem to draw females.

C) In terms of pop culture characters, females are more sexualized than males in most cases in the source media - so they get more Rule 34 as a result.
(Look at Samus for example; she's very sexualized. Compare her to male video-game protags who fight aliens (Gordon Freeman, Isaac Clarke, Marcus Fenix, John Raynor, John 117 ... the list goes on) - or other space bounty hunters like Boba Fett - she is way more sexualized than any of those characters, so people are more inclined to imagine her in sexual situations.)

D)... all of the above make females more common than males in the Rule 34/ Art Porn community. However, porn of males (including Vore) does exist. You're just not looking hard enough. I'm sure the folks who are here who are into guys can direct you to artists who draw them!

(Full disclosure - I'm a gay trans* chick with no interest in men sexually. I've still seen quite a lot of male Vore over the years. It does exist, it's just a bit harder to find.)

I've actually seen more female characters with dicks than I have male characters in general on this site. ^^; I think even people who are more interested in men tend to feminize their characters when it comes to drawing porn (obviously not all, but it definitely happens). Artists are influenced by the community and what they see being produced, they might be nervous about posting something that might not be as well-liked.

This.

Other than that, joining a discord that is male pred focused is a good source for... well male preds. Tumblr used to have a fair bit of mpred too, but since smut was outlawed on tumblr most of the artists fled either to twitter or scattered to other places. Seen a couple of them pop up on FA as well, some of them don't even do furry art but like elfs and demis.

Men outnumber women here; therefor content that caters to men is more prevalent.

Also, broadly speaking, men are attracted to looks and women are attracted to social status.
While in a story it about as difficult to describe how a character has high social status (rich, authority, respected, etc.) as to describe how a character looks it's naturally much easier to show the attractiveness of a character in an image than their social status.

If you're looking for male predator content, here's the long-time ongoing male pred thread: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=36959

I know hit Back on a forum thread isn't the ideal way to search, but posting in that thread will make you aware when anyone else has something to contribute there.

The proper way to search for gallery content is the tag browsing.

There also tends to be 'trends' in vore over the years.

Right now its stuck in same size swollen bellies females.

But before then it leaned more towards furry micro/macro.

Just got to wait out the trends you dislike.

It's out there if you search for it.

For folks like myself, who feel there was never much content of what they enjoyed, there's a very key way of doing something about it: Make content. Drawing, writing, whatever it takes. Make posts about it. Encourage discussions about it.

In my opinion, that's a much more proactive way of dealing with the gap. Instead of making it a point that it's not there or there's not enough of it, make it exist. Be part of the change to make that happen.

Lately I've been rather bored of drawing giant women, so I'll try to contribute to adding more cute giant bois here. :3
