Playing With: Bestiality Is Depraved
Basic Trope: Bestiality (that is, sex with animals)
  • Straight: Bob has sex with Alice. Alice is a bitch...literally.
  • Exaggerated:
    • Bob is banned from the zoo for some...unpleasantness involving an elephant.
    • Bob once rubbed his dog's belly a little too low accidentally for a split second and now he's on PETA's watchlist.
    • Bob has sex with a jellyfish.
    • Bob has a threesome with two dogs.
  • Downplayed: Bob has no issues having sex with a centaur despite the body shape, but refuses to do similar acts with a horse who wouldn't know any better.
  • Justified:
  • Inverted: A dog tries to have its way with Bob.
  • Subverted:
    • Bob likes dogs, but not in that way. He spends a lot of time with them, but that's it.
    • Bob sleeps with a Cat Girl
  • Double Subverted:
  • Parodied:
  • Zigzagged: Bob is an asexual zooromantic.
  • Averted:
    • Bob does not engage in any sexual behaviour with animals.
    • Bob has no sex life in-story, period.
    • Bob is said to enjoy the company of his dog more than humans, but it's clearly shown that just means he enjoys walking her and playing fetch.
  • Enforced:
    • Rule of Funny
    • Alternatively, we need to show that Bob has no regard for laws and social norms.
  • Lampshaded: "I hear Bob is a real dog-lover."
  • Invoked: Bob gets drunk, and suddenly, his dog starts to look really sexy.
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied:
    • Bob thinks this is Squick, and does not have sex with Alice. He just takes her for a walk.
    • Bob controls his zoophilic urges, and finds a way to redirect his energy away from animals.
  • Discussed: When Bob complains about his sexual frustration, Alice jokes about having to keep him away from her dog.
  • Conversed: "Sex with animals...disgusting."
  • Implied: Bob fathered an egg.
  • Deconstructed: This one really falls into the Don't Try This at Home category. Besides the social and legal implications, there is also additional risk of disease, and it could hurt the animal and/or you.
  • Played For Drama: Bob is arrested for bestiality, and embarrasses his family when word gets out about why he was arrested.
