"Cute" is a strange word. On one hand, you have "cute" as in [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Fluffy Bunnies]]. On the other hand, you have "cute" as in {{Playboy Bunn|y}}ies. And in the [[Literature/TheMoteInGodsEye gripping hand]], you have yiff.

In a nutshell, yiff is {{furry|Comic}} porn.

[[LiesDamnedLiesAndStatistics About 99%]] is produced by the FurryFandom, who invented the word [[CaptainObvious (which makes sense)]]. [[http://en.wikifur.com/wiki/WikiFur_Furry_Central WikiFur]] seems pretty confident that some furry fan named Foxen invented the word, as part of a language called [[http://en.wikifur.com/wiki/Foxish Foxish.]]

Foxish was an [[ConLang entire made-up language]] consisting of a grand total of nine words used for fantasy role-playing foxes. Yiff had the original meaning of [[NewSpeak doubleplusgood]], apparently. The word comes from the [[WrittenSoundEffect onomatopoetic rendering of the sound that a happy fox makes]]. The word became a [[{{Flanderization}} catch-all for sex acts in the furry fandom]] somewhere along the line, though it also became a classification of artwork used to specifically refer to any artwork of both an [[AnimalTropes anthropomorphic]] and adult nature.

Of course, yiff has [[MediaWatchdog its critics]]. For a lot of people, yiff skews [[{{Squick}} just a bit too close to]] [[ButYouScrewOneGoat bestiality]] due to the animal-like characters pictured. This can be countered by the observation that the characters are anthropomorphic, or human-like, adult animals, which implies that [[InterspeciesRomance consent can be given]]. Plus the fact that most furry characters are essentially human from the neck down (including all the... relevant parts... Most of the time). It should also be noted that while cartoon porn is considered a fetish known as ''schediaphilia'', there is currently no distinction between [[{{Hentai}} more common cartoon porn fare]] and yiff art within fetish classifications.

It is also unfair to say the Furry Fandom has produced all yiff; poor MickeyMouse has starred in pornographic Tijuana Bibles, along with other FunnyAnimal characters, making this [[OlderThanTheyThink older than you might think]].

Note that the actual term ''yiff'' is largely a DiscreditedMeme at this point; it might occasionally be used in private conversations, but expect to get laughed or derided out of the virtual room (by furries, no less, which is [[ForumPeckingOrder saying something]]) if you use it in a serious -- or sexual -- context.
