Bestiality Is Depraved

Go To
"Rick, I knew you were a vile, DISGUSTING degenerate, but bestiality?! This goes beyond my wildest dreams!"
Ed Thompson, Bachelor Party

Want to mark a character as a sexual deviant, but confronted with the fact that tropes like Depraved Homosexual, Depraved Bisexual, and Psycho Lesbian are Pet-Peeve Tropes? Not quite up for the moral gravity of tropes like Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil, Villainous Incest, or Pædo Hunt? Simple. Imply that they have a sexual interest in animals. Preferably farm animals, since common pets still might be a bit too squicky for some.

This is almost always played for laughs, rather than titillation. It works partly because actual bestiality is rare enough to seem less "real" than other acts considered perverted, similar to the unreality of cartoon violence — yet common enough that it's more plausible (and seen as less gross by observers, it also doesn't have the same repulsive moral implications) than necrophilia. We don't normally worry about the animal, because of said unreality and our moral distance from animals. It helps that the animals in question are not anthropomorphized and are usually the more "comical" ones found in nature (goats, sheep, chickens). When it is played for drama, expect the character to have crossed the Moral Event Horizon twicefold, since this is an unholy combination of Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil and Bad People Abuse Animals.


You may get a couple of letters from PETA and a severe hoof-to-the-head concussion, but frankly you should just expect that going in.

This trope also shows up in regional humour as a way to mock other regions that are considered Acceptable Targets. For example, in Britain, jokes of this sort (especially regarding sheep) commonly get levied at Wales and Scotland. Meanwhile in the Southern Hemisphere, Australians and New Zealanders like to accuse each other of excessive fondness for sheep. (As you may have guessed, sheep farming makes up a big chunk of the economy in Wales, Scotland, Australia, and New Zealand, all of which have higher populations of sheep than humans.) Latin Americans get this a lot too, especially with regards to donkeys. Sometimes also alleged toward Bedouins and other groups who have long nights alone in the desert with no company except goats and camels. The American version is usually aimed at "rednecks" from the Deep South, although the rural Midwest and northern New England get some ribbing too. In Russia, the regions most commonly accused of this are the Caucasus and Central Asia. Germany's target of choice is Austria; Austria's target of choice are people from Vorarlberg, Tyrol and other rural alpine states.


In some countries, amusingly, this stereotype came about due to how the punishment for theft of livestock was more severe than the punishment for being caught committing bestiality. Naturally, you can guess what some would-be cattle/sheep rustlers would rather confess to in court.

For the trope where people remember something naughty the character did and nothing else about the character who did it,note  see Never Live It Down for Audience Reaction examples and Once Done, Never Forgotten for In-Universe examples.

Compare Extreme Omnisexual, Pædo Hunt, Robosexuals Are Creeps, and I Love the Dead for other disturbing paraphilias. A Subtrope of Unequal Pairing. If biology works like that in their universe, it may lead to a Half-Human Hybrid.

Bestiality (also called Zoorasty) is actually the word for sex with animals; sexual interest is called Zoophilia or Zoosexuality.

Not to be confused with Interspecies Romance, where the two participants are both intelligent creatures, though sometimes such a romance is treated in-universe as if it was this trope due to Fantastic Racism. The Furry Fandom tends to get upset when people confuse the two, and you can't blame them - the overwhelming majority of people in the fandom are staunchly against zoophilia in general.

No Real Life Examples, Please! The ones in fiction can be disturbing enough as it is.

    Anime and Manga 
  • An extra chapter of Adekan has Anri trying to seduce a panda.
  • Black Butler: Pluto, a Hell Hound, can transform from a giant silver dog into an attractive young man on a whim, and seems to prefer running around naked. When Finny sees him with Angela lying on the floor and licking her he assumes they are in a sexual relationship, and while it's initially resolved as a simple misunderstanding due to him being, well, a dog, when directly confronted about this later Angela doesn't exactly deny the sexual aspect. Not SO bizarre, right? Wait, did we mention that his mind is also dog-like in human form?
  • In The Familiar of Zero, Louise famously accuses Saito of being willing to poke anything that stays still long enough: "Maid, dog, cat, goat!"
  • Full Metal Panic!: The Second Raid has a scene where Gates was apparently masturbating to the sight of kittens (that or he was watching something else and just switched channels when he was interrupted).
  • In Killing Bites, some of the villains like Cobra and Hyena enjoy using their beast forms to rape their victims. The spinoff Hoshi Gari Sugidesho!? Inaba-san then plays this for laughs with its premise of Ui Inaba the clumsy rabbit-girl getting so obsessed with beastmen genitalia that she becomes a sex worker to check them all out, which is all accompained by narration trivia about said organs.
  • In the "Gorilla Tactics" episode of Lupin III: Part II series, Lupin (in disguise) taunts Zenigata about an unwanted affectionate encounter he had with a gorilla the previous evening.
  • Played with, but also treated seriously and ultimately averted in Guru Guru Pon-chan, a story about a puppy who gains the power to transform into a girl thanks to mad science and falls in love with a human boy. He likes her as well, but worries that he'll become known as "the pervert who does it with dogs" if the relationship becomes serious. In the end, They Do, they even get married, and it turns out that (almost) Everybody Knew Already and approves of their relationship.
  • Sorta played around in My Balls with Asmodeus, the sheep demon and Kohta at one instance. May also count for Beezlebub, Lamia and Minotaur.
  • In My Bride is a Mermaid, Nagasumi and his dad stumble across a mermaid porn DVD in a box of mermaid aerobics videos. When they both eagerly sit down to watch it, they're both stunned to find erotic footage of... fish. Ordinary fish. Nagasumi's dad casually questions his interests, and the humiliated Nagasumi dies a little more inside...
  • In Nerima Daikon Brothers, both Ichiro and Yukika are very attracted to Pandaikon.
  • Bestiality is surprisingly common in Osamu Tezuka's oevre, used to characterize depraved and nihilistic characters.
  • In Re-Kan!, Ero-Neko is an inverted example, being a perverted cat who likes to watch girls changing in their locker room. He later tries to sneak a peek up Hibiki's skirt as well.
  • I'm a Behemoth, an S-Ranked Monster, but Mistaken for a Cat, I Live as an Elf Girl's Pet: Aria, an Elf girl, finds the titular Behemoth, a reincarnated unnamed knight, who appears like a kitten and was mortally wounded. After being nursed back to health, he develops Undying Loyalty and becomes her companion. When he's mistakenly identified as an Elemental Cat, Aria is warned that the species can crossbreed and "attack" their owners when in heat. Tama is floored when Aria shows zero problems with this and even tells him they'll "nyan nyan" when he's bigger. What's more, the interaction between the two of them is viewed both in-and out-of universe if sometimes put off by Aria's kinks.

  • Hokusai's notorious erotic print "Octopi and Shell Diver" (often known in English by its earlier, inaccurate, translated title "Dream of the Fisherman's Wife") shows a woman engaged in sexual activity with two large octopi. Despite the print often being claimed as the Ur-Example of "tentacle rape" in Japanese pop-culture, the dialogue captions clearly indicate that all parties are consenting.

  • A quote from Dave Barry in Cyberspace: "The Web brings people together because no matter what kind of a twisted sexual mutant you happen to be, you've got millions of pals out there. Type in, 'Find people that have sex with goats that are on fire,' and the computer will say, 'Specify breed of goat.'"
  • German satirist Jan Böhmermann did not note  insult Turkish president Erdogan with this trope. Needless to say, Erdogan was not amused, even Kurds defended him (the whole thing was seen as having a unsavory racist angle), and Böhmermann's "poem" backfired so royally that it became an affair of state and he will look forward to a trial based on the ancient §103 (crimen laesae maiestatis).
    • The case has been dropped by the court on 4th October 2016. Furthermore, section 103 has been removed from the law effective January 1st 2018, as it was considered completely outdated.
  • Dave Chappelle has a bit talking about the theory that AIDS came from someone having sex with a monkey, saying that nobody goes from monkey sex back to people.
    Dave: You're not gonna get some monkey pussy on Tuesday and then say, "Oh, let me call Charlene" on Thursday. Once you fuck a monkey, that's a firm decision. I'm out of the human pussy game for good.
    • Later he discusses a hypothetical person who has sex with monkeys:
      Dave: So y'all can keep fucking these people if you want, niggas. Mo' monkey pussy for me. I'm hooking up with an orangutan next week.
  • Cheech & Chong's skit "Hey Margaret" has the couple Harry (Chong) and Margaret (Cheech) watching a porno movie where, among other things, the lead actress has sex with a dog. Also, in "The Old Man In The Park", where the Old Man (Chong) tells the Punk (Cheech) that the Punk could be his son because "I used to fuck Buffalo. In fact, you look just like your momma."
  • Ellen DeGeneres did a bit about folks objecting to gay marriage stating "next thing, people will be marrying goats" and wondering why they always go there first thing. "Mom, Dad... this is Billy."
  • One of Jeff Foxworthy's "You Might be a Redneck"s is "If your parole states you can not own sheep".
    • And from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour: "If you think The Silence of the Lambs is what happens when Larry walks out to the barn..."
    • Made even better when they show a picture of Larry in his undies in a hotel room...with a sheep! The others don't even try to hold back their laughter.
      Larry: It was such a cute daggum sheep.
  • Jim Gaffigan, in a hidden track at the end of the album "Doing My Time," plays a character who talks about how he is always reminded of fucking a donkey when he returns home. His excuse: "I was drunk and he mumbled something."
  • Adam Hills relays a story about a conversation with an audience member who had worked in forensics in Wales. The man told a story about a farmer who, during the foot-and-mouth crisis, had loved his cows so much that he had taken them into a field and shot them before shooting himself. When Hills expressed his sympathies for the farmer, the audience member clarified that the man “really loved his cows”, as he had no partner and no pornography, but did have a lot of Viagra. When Hills was still doubtful, the man continued. “We swabbed the cows.” Apparently, they got positive results on six out of forty-eight. Hills ends the story with “I know, but all I could think was; what was wrong with the other forty-two? Were they not as pretty or just faster?”
  • Downplayed in a sketch song from German comedy group "Die Insterburgs" which collects mishaps in a sex shop. One guy buys a perfume that is supposed to attract women. It does attract pussies — unfortunately, the feline kind. (In general, some Truth in Television, as mammalian pheromones can be very similar. In this case, though, probably too much Valerian.)
  • Joe Rogan: "You don't fuck sheep because they're hot. You do it because they're that high and no one's looking. Or there's a guy with a camera and he's giving you money."
  • In Bob Saget's HBO Special That Ain't Right, Bob goes on a long riff to randomly-picked audience member Jared, warning him about the dangers of fucking various animals, including goats, ostriches, turtles, and porcupines.

    Comic Books 
  • In Batman: Dark Allegiances, an Elseworlds story set in the 1930s, one character keeps insinuating that there is a blue movie of actress Kitty Graymalkin (a.k.a. Catwoman) having unnatural relations with a Rottweiler.
  • The Boys:
    • Teenage Kix member Blarney Cock is revealed after his death to have been using a hamster as a buttplug.
    • One of the transgressions committed by Tek-Knight is that he buggered his niece's pet chinchilla to death.
    • The Herogasm miniseries features a woman getting mounted by a dog.
  • The Cartoon History of the Universe:
    • It describes the process of domestication thus: "Men and sheep grew very close".
      Shepherd: [hugging a sheep] Darling!
      Sheep: Wha-a-a-at?
    • Later:
      Chicken: None of that funny stuff with ME, pal!
  • Cherry has sex with a dolphin in one issue of Cherry Comics.
  • An infected man rapes and stabs a dolphin to death while singing about his mother in Crossed.
  • Oddly deconstructed/ignored when it comes to Doom Patrol villains The Brain and Monsieur Mallah during Grant Morrison's run. The former is normally a disembodied Brain in a Jar and the latter is a scientifically evolved genius gorilla. When The Brain was temporarily placed in a robot body, they confessed their love for each other. The species difference is rarely, if ever, mentioned. All that gets mentioned is that they are both male.
  • Fables:
    • Goldilocks grew up into a psychotic murderer who's in a sexual relationship with Baby Bear and expresses interest in other non-humans like goblins.
    • Averted with Snow White's relationship with the Big Bad Wolf/Bigby, which is always treated as a true romance, plus Bigby can take human form.
  • In the second volume of Alan Moore's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Mina Harker and Alan Quartermain meet Doctor Moreau's animal people. The polar bear Moreau is cranky and violent, and Moreau states that they calm him down by paying a local lady to have coitus with him. "A matronly lady, a grandmother I believe..."note 
  • In the Power Girl series, it's strongly implied that Satanna had sex with the Ultra-Humanite after he first was transplanted into his gorilla body, much to PG's disgust.
  • A favorite of Garth Ennis, particularly in Preacher, where Jesus de Sade, the world's wealthiest and most accomplished pervert, is offered an armadillo on a silver platter by his manservant. De Sade is also stated to have sodomized all the city zoo's larger quadrupeds, leading to the armadillo incident above. Also, during the party thrown by De Sade, we see a guy in the stocks surrounded by sheep, saying "Do it, you sluts!".
  • Ramba: In one scene in "Violent Death", Ramba has her pet cat Lucifer lick her vagina after finding out she has another target to assassinate.
  • Done twice by the Italian comic book Rat-Man. As usual with the series, it's completely insane:
    • The superhero Marvel Man had his career ruined when the press exposed the fact he had sex with a sheep. Then Rat-Man had sex with the same sheep... And it's the sheep who got her career ruined! She then got back together with Marvel Man.
    • Back when Rat-Man was a child, Boda Valker had many politicians in his pockets thanks to blackmail. The example we're shown is him having pictures of the president having sex with a sheep and blackmailing him and the sheep.
  • Another Millar example with Reborn: Golgotha keeps a massive lion-headed dragon as his lover. We even get a scene of visiting him on a bed Ready for Lovemaking.
  • Red Ears: Played for laughs. A man who has just joined the French Foreign Legion arrives at his new posting in a remote Saharan fortress. When he asks the other soldiers how they manage without the opposite gender, his colleagues tell him they just use their dromedary. The new soldier scoffs off at the suggestion, but he eventually starts fantasizing about the dromedary after several weeks. His colleagues stumble upon him after he finishes the deed, and clarify that they meant they use the dromedary to travel to the local brothel.
  • In Requiem Vampire Knight, Black Sabbath was in love with Aiwass, a demonic entity that assumed the form of a male mandrill. Even though it could take any shapes it wants even a feminine humanoid form, Sabbath prefers the animal form better as he finds their relationship purer due to transcending species and even superior to Heinrich and Rebecca's romance.
  • One of the "Meanwhile" stories from Squee had a man forced to have sex with a chicken by aliens in order for them to study human sexual behavior. In the end, the man marries the chicken and has children with it.
  • Deconstructed in Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run. After pictures of her and (the admittedly anthropomorphic) Swamp Thing are shown in newspapers, Abigail Cable is arrested for her relationship and charged with "crimes against nature", the laws that would usually be used to prosecute the aforementioned screwers of farm animals. She's arrested, fired from her job, her reputation is ruined, everyone starts treating her like a horrible sex offender, and Swampy is forced to cover almost the entirety of Gotham in greenery in order to secure her release. It is up to Batman to point out what would happen if the authorities arrest everyone in The DCU who has a relationship with a non-human, and it's the delivery that just nails it as a literal Space Whale Aesop. Eventually we will run into intelligent non-humans, and perhaps the biggest part of What Measure Is a Non-Human? is whether or not we believe them — or they believe us — worthy of love.
    Batman: I mean, if you want to take this all the way, non-humanity doesn't end with the Swamp Thing. Let me see... You'll possibly have to arrest Hawkman... and Metamorpho... ...And there's also Starfire, from the Titans. Her race evolved from cats, I believe... The Martian Manhunter, obviously. Captain Atom... And then of course there's what's-his-name... the one who lives in Metropolis.
  • Tank Girl's boyfriend is an intelligent mutated kangaroo. It's unclear how proper this is considered in the setting, but Tank Girl herself has never cared much about propriety.
  • A famous joke and former page quote is replicated nearly word for word in Transmetropolitan (except it's a janitor in a convention hall and not a farmer) with throwaway character "Bill Chimpfucker".
  • Viz featured a strip titled George Bestial, with the titular character getting into shenanigans that involved attempting to shag animals.
  • Mr. Rictus from the Mark Millar comic mini-series Wanted. (In the Brazilian translation, it's changed to kangaroos, since he's Australian.)
    Mr. Rictus: I do not fuck goats, Mr. Gibson. I make love to them.
    • This eventually led to the famous Nextwave cover parody of the Civil War event, which read "Mark Millar Licks Goats". Millar apparently took it in stride.
  • In Wonder Woman New 52 run, the First-Born was a humanoid deity that bred with hyenas and spawned a cadre of demigod hyena-man that serve as his foot soldiers.
  • Also gets a deconstructive nod in X-Men. Beast's already blue and furry, but when he undergoes a secondary mutation that leaves him looking more feline than hominid, his girlfriend breaks up with him because the tabloids start comparing the relationship to bestiality.
    • Being blue and furry was also a secondary mutation that caused his previous girlfriend to break up with him. Beast originally just had unusual proportions and extreme acrobatic ability.

    Comic Strips 
  • A strip by Joan Cornellà had a boy's mother catch her son watching porn, then smile approvingly after getting him to watch a video of a man fucking a dog.
  • In the book-only Dilbert collection Dogbert's Clues for the Clueless, Dogbert says that a mother has a lifetime right to tell embarrassing stories about her children. Cut to a woman, seated beside her grown son, asking someone "Did I ever tell you about Jeffrey's first visit to the zoo?...Well, Jeffrey was just reaching puberty and still confused about a lot of things..." The son begs her in anguish to stop, but to no avail: "And to this day he's still banned from the monkey cage area."
  • The Far Side had one with two chimpanzees grooming each other:
    "Well, well, another blonde hair. Conducting a little more 'research' with that Jane Goodall tramp?"
    • Allegedly, Goodall's lawyer sent Larson a strongly-worded letter about the comic... followed by a letter from Goodall herself saying she thought it was hilarious.
  • In Kabouter Wesley, Wesley's homemade computer suddenly mentions that "Jan fucks goats" (which Jan admits having done only once), and shows everyone a censored picture of the act. How it got that is unknown.

    Fan Works 
  • The Bolt Chronicles: Both Penny and Bolt feel that fanfiction depicting the two of them as lovers is perverse. Played with regarding Penny, as she finds the stories laughable instead of disgusting and pokes fun at them.
  • The infamous Alphys X Amalgamates shipping from Undertale, in its entirety. Do we even need to explain how fucked-up this is?
  • Apparently, one of Turles's men in the Christmas Tree of Might special of Dragon Ball Z Abridged raped Rudolph.
  • Dungeon Keeper Ami: The Tales of Keeper Mercury's depravity are the stuff of legend. Features this as a running gag. Actually averted, but try telling anyone that...
  • In Faery Heroes, Harry calls Snape out for his unprofessional behavior.
    Harry: I hereby call into effect section nineteen, subsection three of the Hogwarts Faculty Code of Conduct.
    Hermione: You mean subsection two. Subsection three concerns the groundskeeper being caught engaging in sodomy during a school day with an animal from the previous week's Care lessons.
    Harry: That's... oddly specific, and I really don't want to know why.
  • Like in the source material, Professor Hojo from Final Fantasy VII: Machinabridged is shown attempting to breed Aerith with Red XIII. However, here he states that he forces his specimens to copulate, because:
    Hojo: This... IS... MY... FETISH!!
  • Decidedly not Played for Laughs by For You, I Will, which follows Melanie going on a killing spree, and forcing Embry to be her accomplice, since the fact that he imprinted on her means he can't refuse. During one of their "hunts," Melanie orders Embry to rape a woman they're about to kill. Later, she tells him to do the same to another woman... while he's in wolf form. Readers, feel free to throw up now.
  • Ed and Al's "experiments" on sheep is a running gag in Kit-chan's Fullmetal Alchemist The Abridged Series capsummaries and videos.
  • In Happily Ever After, Fred and George roast the groom at Ron and Hermione's wedding.
    Fred: Our only disappointment was that we were unable to fulfill his last request...
    George: ...but that was only due to the protestations of the Welsh Sheep Council.
  • In Harry Potter and the Quantum Leap, Harry gives sarcastic answers to Lockhart's quiz on his books.
    What curse did Gilderoy Lockhart cure the Transylvanian villagers from?
    Himself. He left. The villagers cheered, and made mad passionate love to all the animals in the area. Gilderoy was upset when he found out, 'cause he missed out on the sheep.
  • Hitman Miami: Chapter 2 has the "Q.A. Head of the Spork Department" who is involved in illegal ferret smuggling. He uses the ferrets himself for... specific activities. Agent 47 comes upon him in the middle of said... specific activities, and can kill him easily by emitting a radio frequency that causes all ferrets to go vicious.
  • In House of Snakes, a time-and-dimension-traveling Harry gives Sirius an old Black family grimoire for Christmas.
    Hadrian: It details some of the less known exploits of your illustrious family, including a time when one of our great ancestors attempted to mate with the giant squid.
  • In I'm An S-Rank Behemoth Monster, the punchline of Chapter 15 is that Aria wants to molest a kitten. This trait is not portrayed positively or seriously. (The kitten escapes, if you were wondering.)
  • Light and Dark The Adventures of Dark Yagami has Roger the caretaker, who abused the children at Whammy House and "did creepy things with his dog".
  • Living The Dream
    • Louie turns himself into a dog in the hopes of wooing Twilight. When that fails he hooks up with Winona, a completely normal and non-sapient dog, and has pups with her.
    • In a nightmare it's revealed that Lance's cousins locked him in a barn and raped him with a horse.
  • In Magical Relations, Sirius tells Harry why the burn marks on the Black family tree tapestry are there and comments in passing that one of the things the Blacks should have disowned family members for is an unhealthy obsession with sheep.
  • In Magic Area Affects Wizards' Health, Ron puts a drunken Draco in bed with a pig and takes photos of it.
    Ron: And then I arranged for a farmer I know to send a letter to Draco asking if he wanted another night with Cindy Lu Swine before she was scheduled to become pork chops? If he didn't want her, then he might be interested in Little Soo-Wee?
  • In The Obligatory Marriage Law Fic, Harry, having replaced Minister Fudge's intended rape victim with a transfigured pony, threatens to reveal the situation to the press unless he legalizes Harry's marriage to Ginny, who wasn't on the Ministry's list of intended brides.
    Harry: If you don't start doing what I tell you to do, you'll find that the press has photos of yourself with that pony. My camera won't show her in the transfigured state either. Oh, no. She'll be there in all her equine glory.
  • In Past Lives, Voldemort has one of his minions cast a spell on him which makes you relive previous lives. On the first attempt, he acts like a cow, while the second results in sheep-like behavior. Two of the "stranger" Death Eaters volunteer to look after him on the latter occasion.
    The last words the Death Eaters heard as they popped out would haunt them forever.
    "Hey... Let's find a fence to push this feller up against."
  • In The Prayer Warriors, Grover alludes to engaging in bestiality prior to his conversion.
  • In Spirit Of Redemption, there is a blink and you miss it line about how one of the brothers of the leader of the Turian government had a livestock habit.
  • In The Stalking Zuko Series, fornicating with koala sheep will get one removed from the Fire Lord succession. Zuko's crew is full of people who have been disgraced in some way or another, and "unmentionable acts with a koala sheep" is why Pi ended up there.
  • There is an infamous fanfic on Survival of the Fittest's Kink Meme that pairs Bridget Connolly and a dog. Someone requested this. Another request involves Rosa Fiametta and a horse. You may get out the Brain Bleach. Particularly now that the latter has been answered too. Graphically.
  • In Sword Art Online Abridged, Kirito and Asuna have zero interest in the fisherman they met after Yui's death. This has less to do with the fact that they're still traumatized and more because he "totally doesn't bang fish".
  • There Was Once an Avenger From Krypton: As discussed in Thanatos Scowled, dark rituals were used by some factions in Ancient Greece to recreate the circumstances that birthed the Minotaur, in order to use them as weapons. Sam and Valerie are disgusted to hear this from Nico, who agrees that sometimes Humans Are the Real Monsters.
  • A Twist in Time Travel:
    Sirius: There aren't many supporters of werewolves.
    Harry: They are politicians, Sirius. They'll fuck a goat in public if it means it'll further their ambitions a bit.
  • A Tsukihime fanfic made a meme out of the line "That's all right... A cat is fine, too" after the dojinshi portrays Shiki as a Memetic Molester who wants to do terrible things to Len. When Len tries to escape via transforming into a cat, Shiki utters that immortal line.
  • Played for Drama a few times in With Pearl and Ruby Glowing. Human Trafficking organisation The Ark sometimes forces victims into sex with animals for videos, or even encourages their guards to use it as a punishment for their coworkers for being too soft on prisoners. The humans involved in the actual acts aren't consenting any more than the animals can; it's a form of Cold-Blooded Torture playing on disgust and degradation, and the depraved parties are the people who set it up. In an inversion, Eliza was nearly drowned and/or seriously injured when a sea turtle got too friendly on a livestream (adult sea turtles being about the weight of horses, so she hadn't a hope of fending it off) and viewers thought it was funny instead of horrifying.

    Film — Animation 
  • In The Adventures of Tintin (2011), Captain Haddock mentions that one of his crewman lost his job as a shepherd due to his "animal husbandry". The camera then cuts to a mouse struggling to escape his grip while he's asleep.
  • The trolls in Frozen lampshade Kristoff's relationship with Sven as this trope, though it is downplayed (as is to be expected for a Disney film).
    So he's a bit of a fixer upper, so he's got a few flaws/ Like his peculiar brain, dear, the thing with the reindeer/ that's a little outside of nature's laws!

    Film — Live Action 
  • Airplane! has Captain Ovuer's wife cheating on him...with a horse. She tells him to leave out the back door, and that juice is in the fridge.
  • Part of the fraternity hazing for the dwarf frat in American Pie Presents: Beta House is to have sex with a sheep. The thing is, they don't expect the applicants to ACTUALLY do it, its just meant as a mindfuck. The pledges either give up, or realizes the catch and just jerk off into a condom and claim they did it. It's revealed that the villain of the movie had actually gone through with it, and the experience messed him up so much that sheep are now a secret fetish for him, which the Beta's use in the final challenge of the Greek Olympiad.
  • In Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, Ron Burgundy sneaks into Sea World an hour early every day and sexually assaults a star fish.
  • The Angels Melancholy has a woman make out with the butchered remains of a pig, and later she gets intimate with a goat. This appears unsimulated.
  • In The Animal the protagonist (who has animal organs implanted in him) gets sexually attracted to a goat in heat, Played for Laughs.
  • Subverted in Bachelor Party, in which the groom-to-be's buddies arrange for a hooker to have sex with a mule as a party floor show. Before anything overt can actually happen, the mule wanders over to a nearby drug-user's table and snorts a massive dose of cocaine, then keels over from heart failure.
  • Black Sheep (2007). The older brother's relationship with a certain sheep has a bonus of being incestuous. Somehow.
    Angus Oldfield: You wouldn't understand.
    Henry Oldfield: I understand you've got a pretty fucked up idea of animal husbandry!
  • The "donkey show" in Clerks II. Randall sets up a going-away party for Dante by hiring "Kinky Kelly and the Sexy Stud" to perform at the fast-food joint they work at, largely so they can finally see the kind of depraved thing they'd always heard about in movies like Bachelor Party. Then it turns out that Kelly was actually the (male) donkey, and the Sexy Stud was the man they thought was "Kelly's" pimp... and yet they watch anyway.
    Becky: "I'm disgusted, and repulsed, and... and I can't look away... that's huge!"
  • In a brief scene in the city from Conan the Barbarian (1982), Conan and Subotai have a good laugh over a guy screwing a llama.
  • The lost film Convention City (1933) includes a drunk conventioneer leading a goat back to his room.
  • The Devil's Rejects: Charley and his assistant go to buy some chicken for dinner, and the chicken-farmer selling it asks if they've ever fucked a chicken... and starts providing a lot more information than either of them could have possibly required. For good measure, the chicken-farmer attempts to row back by claiming that Charley's assistant looks sexually frustrated enough to have tried it himself, which naturally results in the normally sedate assistant completely flying off the handle.
  • District 9: After Wikus flees the Corrupt Corporate Executive and his goons, the media reports that he had sex with aliens and contracted an STD. Every human he talks to after that for the rest of the movie comments on his alien sex, which they think is the cause of Wikus' steady transformation into an alien. Totally justified in that thanks to MNU's propaganda, that's all anyone did know about Wikus.
  • In one film version of Vilhelm Moberg's The Emigrants, one of the main characters begs to be taken along to America because everyone back home torments him about his suggested trysts with a cow.

There is evidence that horses were sacrificed and eaten at Tara, but there isn't any reliable evidence that bestiality occurred. That said, bizarre sexual rituals for the affirmation of royalty were common around the ancient world.note  Although a similar ritual might be mentioned in Fermanagh (right next door to Ulster), although it doesn't include the bestiality part.

Hours later he comes back covered in claw marks and scratches and asks: "Nhow, wheresh that Eshkhimo I wash shupposhed to kill?"
      • The same joke is told with a Texan who went to Alaska, and was given the same challenge.

"It seems that a woman in our tribe has given birth to a baby... a white baby," said the chief. The anthropologist began to laugh. "Oh, is that all? No, that's just a classic case of albinism. It's caused by inheriting recessive pigment genes and..." The chief didn't look convinced, so he pointed at a nearby flock of sheep. "See those sheep? All of them are white except for that one. It's like that!" The chief was silent for a moment and said, "Listen, you don't talk about the sheep, and I won't talk about the baby."

The next week, he comes back and asks what he can get for ten dollars. "Follow me," says the proprietor. He takes the customer to a room where a number of men are watching a peep show. The customer looks through a peephole and sees a man having sex with a sheep. He joins his fellow customers in derisive laughter.

One day he sees the minister walking by, waves him over, and hands him the list. "Reverend," he says, "can you tell me what these words mean?" The minister patiently defines them one by one, then blushes and hesitates as he comes to the last word. "Come on, Reverend," says the farmer. "Don't be bashful. What does 'bestiality' mean?" "Er...well," says the minister, "it refers to the forbidden and disgusting act of intimate relations with beasts, such as sheep, goats, and chickens." "Ewww," says the farmer. "Chickens?"

So the researcher asks " do you do it?" The farmer replies "you put the back legs in your boots and the front legs on a wall and go from there." From there, the researcher goes to Wales, where he asks the same question. The first farmer he meets boldly responds "yes!". Again, the researcher asks how, and the Welshman responds "You put the back legs in your boots and the front legs over your shoulders and go from there". The researcher says "That's interesting, because in Yorkshire a man said back legs in boots and front over a wall". "What?!" replies the Welshman, "No kissing?!"

Finally he decides that if he's going to do it, he's going to do it right, so he chooses a sheep, dresses it up, and takes it to the saloon for a drink. When he arrives, everything goes silent, and all the patrons stare at him in shock. Embarrassed he stammers "I was told everyone here did it!"

  • Jim Norton has a bit about bestiality, in which he says he's unsure of how to feel about it, and that opinion is due to depending on the size of the animal. A large animal, such as a horse or a cow, you're not going to hurt it, it'd probably never even notice. But a small animal, like a chicken or a small dog, you're a sick fuck who gets off on hurting things smaller than yourself because you never made a woman go "ow".

"Well," said the bear, "in that case you will have to give me a blow job." Having no choice in the matter, the hunter did as he was told. That night, the hunter was really angry and vowed to get revenge. So the next day, he went to the same spot, only this time he brought a huge elephant gun. Once again, the bear appeared and the hunter fired. After the smoke cleared, the hunter couldn't see a carcass. Tap, tap, tap. "You tried to shoot me, didn't you?" "Why, yes, I'm afraid I did." "Well, take your pants down and bend over. I'm going to have to screw you up the ass." Having no choice, the hunter did what he was told. That night, the hunter was really, really angry and resolved that he would get the bear, no matter what. This time he brought an M60. He went to the same spot and waited until the bear appeared by the stream. He fired off fifty rounds. When the smoke cleared, he couldn't see the bear. Tap, tap, tap. "You tried to shoot me, didn't you?" The Hunter gulped. "Yes, I'm afraid I did." The bear thought for a moment then said, "You don't come here for the hunting, do you?"

    "Horse": Well, why would I talk to you? You burned down my barn and took away my stable boy!"

  • Bazil Broketail: Trolls like to have sex with farm animals, we hear early on. Relkin and Lagdalen find it disgusting, naturally.
  • The novel Beloved plays this completely seriously. The male slaves on the farm have sex with cows because they have no prospect of sleeping with a woman.
  • In Bored of the Rings, boggies are described as having a "usual fondness for fuzzy animals." Spam Gangree has received a suspended sentence for having performed "an unnatural act with an underage female dragon of the opposite sex," and Frito's mother and Dildo's sister is said to have married a "hafling, i.e. part boggie, part opossum" from "the wrong side of the Gallowine."
  • The main character and his horse in Brightly Burning by Mercedes Lackey. Of course, since the horse is a Talking Animal, it's not quite as perverted.
    • He and his Companion are in love with each other, but he only ever mounts her in the usual equine sense. The heralds probably would have had something to say, otherwise... Luckily Companions are the divinely reincarnated souls of dead (human) Heralds, which helps a little.
      • To be even more precise, he and his Companion are Life Bonded, which means they are fated to be paired together and it is something they has NO control over. This normally means romantically, which certainly raises implications. However, while they are life bonded, it is never acted on sexually. It does mean that he will never have a normal romantic relationship with anyone else. Lackey started the Life Bond concept as the ultimate romantic ideal, but gradually moved it back as her work progressed to indicate that it could have problems. This pairing was one prime example of the problems that could result.
  • In the Free-Love Future world ruled by Christopher Goodman in the Christ Clone Trilogy, bestiality is considered healthy and acceptable as well as all other forms of limitless sex.
  • It doesn't happen in Codex Alera either, but the Marat and their totem animals are the subject to jokes like this among the Alerans. Kitai, one of the Marat who's bonded with Tavi, an Aleran, makes a joke similarly when she's explaining the bond—Tavi asks if his bond with her is like her father, Doroga's, bond with a gargant, named Walker, and she says when she last checked, Doroga wasn't mating with Walker... because Walker wouldn't stand for it.
  • The dinosaur erotica series by Alara Branwen and Christie Sims. Hot dinosaur-on-cavewoman action, lots of Artistic License – Biology applied.
  • Thus far, this hasn't actually appeared in Discworld, but it gets referenced quite a lot.
    • When Sergeant Colon decides to learn about farming in Feet of Clay, he gets a bit worried about a book called Animal Husbandry, because you hear stories...
    • In Maskerade the phrase "the people of Lancre got up with the chickens and went to bed with the cows" has a clarifying footnote that this means they went to bed at the same time as the cows.
    • Both the above phrases are analysed in Nanny Ogg's Cookbook, but sadly her thoughts on the matter are covered by notes from the publisher about how that entire section can't be used.
    • In The Last Continent, Rincewind, perplexed by the presence of Funny Animal sheep in Crocodile's tavern, reflects that if you could get a cross between a human and a sheep, someone would have noticed by now, especially in remote rural areas.
    • And there's Bestiality Carter, who like all the Carters has a Non-Indicative Name, and is very kind to animals. (The Carter family got their wires crossed; since you can name girls for virtues, well then boys...)
    • Feeney from Snuff mentions how his grandfather used to know all the local people's secrets, like how one man had been caught in flagrante delicto with a common barnyard fowl.
    • Subverted in Reaper Man, in which the prospect of Ludmilla (a werewolf) getting together with Lupine (a wereman) is treated as a perfectly-acceptable Interspecies Romance, despite him being a normal wolf and her, a normal human, most of the month. The fact that Lupine is fully sentient as a wereman and at the very least pretty smart (if not totally sentient — he seems to be) even as a wolf makes it palatable.
    • Implied in a very vague sense between Angua (a werewolf) and Gavin (a wolf — and much smarter than most. According to Angua, he understands over 800 words, and as she points out, "Many people get by on less"). It's not explicitly stated, and it was long since past even if it was, but... well. She's a werewolf, so technically she's as close to wolf as she is to human, but even still.
    • And of course, there's the infamous "Hedgehog Song", whose full title is "The Hedgehog Can Never Be Buggered At All". Only a few stanzas are ever sung on the page (mostly by — who else? — Nanny Ogg), but numerous unofficial versions were created soon after it first appeared in Wyrd Sisters.
  • In Dragon Bones, one of the protagonists wants to emphasize how people would think about the high king if they knew he had a noblewoman tortured. He says they would maybe not morally object to it, but be disgusted, as if the king had had an affair with one of his hunting dogs.
  • The Emigrants features a serious version. Arvid the farmhand gets into the bad graces of the farmer's old mother. To dirty Arvid's name, she spreads a rumor that he does unknowable things to one of the cows. This becomes Arvid's motivation to emigrate to America.
  • In the Forgotten Realms novel Elfsong by Elaine Cunningham, Danillo Thann has a song mocking the local bandit kingdom that goes:
    They're far from staid after a raid,
    The men of Zhentil Keep.
    They slaughter all the women,
    As they much prefer the sheep.
    The Zhents don't eat their ill-got treat,
    Not one of them's a glutton.
    So isn't it a wonder,
    How they always smell of mutton?
  • In Apuleius' The Golden Ass, the main character (who's been transformed into a donkey) worries about this trope when he's sold to a gang of Camp Gay crossdressing priests, but nothing bad comes from it. Later in the story, he has sex with a noble matron who actually paid for him, and later is used to inflict a painful death by sex to a vile, adulterous woman, but he's so disgusted by her that he runs away instead.
  • In the book Guns, Germs, and Steel, the author recalls a situation where a doctor was stumped as to the illness of his patient. Finally he asked if symptoms had appeared after a sexual experience. The man stammered a bit, but in the end admitted he'd had sex with a sheep while abroad. Unfortunately, the man spoke little English, so all questions and answers had to through his wife...
  • In Harry Potter, it's mentioned in passing that Dumbledore’s brother Aberforth got in trouble for a “minor scandal” with the Department of Magical Law Enforcement for “using inappropriate charms on a goat.” When an eight-year-old asked in one interview about what kind of charm it was, Rowling was a little shocked.
    "I think that he was trying to make a goat that was easy to keep clean [laughter], curly horns. That’s a joke that works on a couple of levels. I really like Aberforth and his goats. But you know Aberforth having this strange fondness for goats if you've read book seven, came in really useful to Harry, later on, because a goat, a stag, you know. If you’re a stupid Death Eater, what’s the difference. So, that is my answer to YOU."
  • In the second Horus Heresy novel, a Chaos Undivided ritual is described, wherein a preistess has to copulate with a sick pig to attract the favour of Slaanesh (gender-non-conforming deity of hedonism) and Nurgle (god of disease), then the preistess, who had been promised great power from the ritual, is killed and eaten by the other worshippers to attract favor from Tzeench (god of cunning) and Khorne (god of bloodshed).
  • In The House of Night, Neferet's consort is the Bull of Darkness.
  • In The Journeyer, by Gary Jennings, a historical novel about the life and travels of Marco Polo, the slave Nostril first makes his appearance being dragged behind a panicked mare which he had been assigned to groom and to which he had been chained. Nostril's proclivities get more creative as the novel progresses.
  • "Klint" by Horst Stern was called in a recension "horse porn" - it's a) one scene b) probably hallucinated (guy is seeing centaurs) and c) for special irony, the author was a reknowned German critical animal filmer who once claimed that love to animals (the un-sexual one) is "social bestiality".
  • Played for laughs in Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, when in which the Messiah asks a ship captain about sex (as he has been told he won't ever know a woman). The captain responds, "Oh, you want to know about fucking? I've fucked women, young boys, sheep, horses, the odd turtle..." Jesus' friend drags him away from the captain, prompting Christ to ask why he can't learn from the captain. The friend can only respond by stuttering, muttering "God, a turtle". (Throughout the rest of the story, turtle-sex is periodically referenced.)
  • In The Last Picture Show,the semi-autobiographical novel by Larry Mc Murtry, in a small Texas town the rural students refuse to join the high-school football team because they all want to rush home and have sex with the cows instead of going to afternoon practice.
  • Ted Chiang discusses the trope in his short SF "The Lifecycle of Software Objects" - should sex with semiintelligent A.I.s be alikened to it?
  • In "Somebody Else's Magic", one of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Lythande stories, through the story Lythande constantly hears and sometimes contemplates the insult "You molester of virgin goats!" In the finale when she's confronted by a fellow member of her order who's seen evidence to let him possibly guess she's female (every member of their order has to keep one fact about themselves secret or lose their power), she starts yelling insults at him just to distract him, but when she uses the Virgin Goats one, the reaction on his face makes her immediately realize that that's his secret.
  • The Long Earth: The "Beagles" are a canine-like intelligent species from a parallel Earth. When cultural exchange along the Earths lets them discover Terran dogs, they use them as sex toys. (It's an alien culture...)
  • In Philip José Farmer's Lord Tyger, when the Wild Child protagonist Ras Tyger note  reaches adolescence he trains a small monkey to "play" with him. The few people who learn about this react pretty much as you'd expect, but he neither understands nor cares.
  • Irvine Welsh's novella 'Lorraine Goes to Livingston' features excerpts from a regency romance novel one of the characters is writing which features a hero who falls in love with a sheep after losing his wife. The hero's friends eventually have the sheep slaughtered and served to him in order to end the infatuation.
  • Hal Yarrow, protagonist of The Lovers, is accused of this when his beloved Jeannette is revealed to be a lalitha, closer to an insect than a human. His accuser, MacNeff, is promptly accused of planning this, as Hal only found out when he was accused, but MacNeff knew it and apparently wanted her alive...
  • Joan Hess's Maggody mysteries contain joking references to this, many of them in regards to how Raz Buchanon dotes upon his pet pedigree sow, Marjorie. Internal monologue by Robin Buchanon, just before her death, indicates this character had trained the family dog to engage in some highly-questionable behavior.
  • Mirror, Mirror: The cook laconicly states she had sex with a squid and even shows the suck marks. (It's possible that the squid wanted her for dinner and she merely wanted to annoy the priest, though.)
  • Carl Hiaasen, Native Tongue, the dolphin scene. (And that's only a blatant example, a list of the more subtle insinuations in all his crime novels would get too long...)
  • Played rather seriously in Honoré de Balzac's novella A Passion in the Desert where a man's relationship with a leopard he domesticates is presented in romantic terms.
  • In Protector of the Small, lady-knight-in-training Kel and the King's Own have dealings with a herd of centaurs. Some of them went rogue and became bandits, and it's mentioned that the leader of the others is killing the "slaves" — horses — who were mounted by the renegades, believing that being mated with wicked centaurs ruins the horses. It doesn't help that earlier on, that same leader wanted to buy Kel, seeing her as sturdy and possibly able to bear sons of his kind.
  • In Red Dwarf: Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers, when Lister reluctantly goes into the android brothel to find Rimmer, he tells the madame he isn't interested in a girl droid. Or a boy droid. Before he can explain further, she says she understands, and the lobby fills up with robot sheep.
  • Ferrol Sams' book Run With The Horseman has the character nicknamed "Moo Cow" for this reason.
  • Older Than Print: In the Saga of Halfred the Sigskald from the Tenth Century, Halfred has to pay damages to his rival for making a mocking verse about how he "enjoys the herd".
  • John Donne's "Satire IV", which skewers gossipy would-be courtly types, references this one:
    Who wasts in meat, in clothes, in horse, he notes;
    Who loves Whores, who boyes, and who goats.
  • In Shadow of the Conqueror, this is Played for Laughs. Daylen intentionally invents a rumor at the start of the book that the leaders of a specific foreign country all have sex with goats. This goes on to be a Running Gag.
  • Averted in Smokescreen by Robert Sabbag, where the protagonist is bemused to get a detailed explanation of the need for bestiality while in Columbia. Thanks to the Madonna-Whore Complex, sex is only available from married women, or prostitutes whom Hormone Addled Teenagers can't afford. So animals are an accepted substitute (though donkeys are regarded as cleaner than chickens).
  • In A Song of Ice and Fire, Arya/Jeyne is forcibly married to Ax-Crazy Ramsay Bolton, and while the abuses she suffers are never specified, when she is rescued she says that she'll "do whatever he wants, with him or the dog" before breaking down. There's also hints that Bolton has an unusual attachment to his hunting dogs, who are all female. Played for Drama to the extreme (as she can be heard crying throughout the entire castle, constantly). In a more humorous take, while the subtext is clear, the ribald song "The Bear and the Maiden Fair" has subtext implying it's a bear of a man (i.e. large, lots of coarse hair) who wins said maiden by being good at oral sex, but the text just has him as a plain, if talking, bear. And of course, there's the tale Tormund Giantsbane, Husband to Bears tells of that time he was really drunk...
    • Varamyr Sixskins is a skin changer and controls/can enter the mind of three wolves. He has been known to enter the female wolf when its being mounted by the alpha wolf, and the male doing the mounting. Yek.
  • In Spell Singer, as it takes place in a world where humans and anthropomorphic animals live as equals, they see no issue with inter-species relationships. Jon-Tom (who is from our world) is very uncomfortable with this. Flores (who is also from our world) not only does has no culture shock, but she is mentioned to have hooked up with an anthro Rabbit after her character was Put on a Bus.
  • Split Heirs: It's strongly implied that Odo has had sex with his sheep. Gorgarians are also implied to have sex with their mares at times.
  • In the Stephanie Plum book series:
    • Stephanie's cousin Vinnie was once "in love" with a duck. Vinnie is the butt of this joke quite often. In one of Stephanie's monologues he's said to sleep with anything: Women, Men, Dogs, Goats...
    • There's also a persistent rumor about Joyce's alleged fondness for dogs...
  • In Tinker, Chiyo, a Kitsune, is forced by Lord Tomtom to breed with and becomes pregnant by a warg; a sort of pony sized wolf.
  • John Ringo plays with this quite literally in Unto the Breach, where one of the village elders essentially comments that it was just one goat...
  • Wet Goddess is a story of a (human) college student Zachary Zimmerman falling in love with a bottlenose dolphin Ruby.
  • Notably averted in Xanth. The realm's magic makes it possible for nearly any two creatures to produce viable offspring as long as they can make the parts fit — and if they don't fit, you can get an accommodation spell. Most beings tend to be attracted to their own species, but Interspecies Romance abounds and carries very little stigma. And then there are the love springs — if you drink from one, you immediately fall in love with the next creature of the opposite sex you lay eyes on. When, say, a man and his mare drink from the same spring, the result is a centaur.
  • From The Xenophobe's Guide to the Welsh, a joke apparently told by the Welsh themselves:
    "Have you heard? Old Jones the farmer has been found interfering with a sheep!"
    "Good heavens! Ewe or ram?"
    "Ewe... there's nothing funny about Jones."
    • In a variant, the response to the first line is "Ewwww...." and the answer to that is "Of course... there's [&c]."

    Live-Action TV 
  • Ally McBeal: Richard uses this potential scenario to argue before the judge that the Supreme Court's ruling that the President - and by default a Congressman like his client - could be sued while in office was a bad ruling:
    Don't tell me I can't cripple a Congressman's ability to do his work! With today's media? It's not like they go out and check the facts! I could say something about you having sex with a goat - totally untrue, so what! All I gotta do is say it, Newsweek will print it and boom, your whole docket becomes spin control!
  • The Big Bang Theory gives us the following exchange:
    Raj: I'm telling you dude, the only way to make you feel better about Penny going out with other guys, is for you to get back on the whores.
    Howard: ... "horse".
    Raj: What?
    Howard: The phrase is "get back on the horse"... not "whores".
    Raj: That's disgusting, dude!
  • In the final episode of Blackadder II, the German Prince Ludwig reveals that the sheep Melchett had... relations with, was actually him in brilliant disguise.
    Closing Chorus: Lord Melchett! Lord Melchett! / Intelligent and deep! / Lord Melchett! Lord Melchett! / A shame about the sheep!
    • Subverted later in the episode, when he's revealing how he knows Queen Elizabeth. It really looks like he's going to reveal that he was her horse and she had sex with him, but then it turns out that he was the German stable lad, and she didn't sleep with him. Her relationship with the horse appears purely platonic.
    • In the premier episode of series one, this is averted and invoked with Edmund who is secretly (and unknowingly) nursing Henry Tudor back to health in his room, hoping for a reward. His mother comes in, and when Edmund implies that there is someone in his bed, the Queen asks if it is a sheep. He denies this. Later on, to keep her from checking the bed he makes bleating noises. Her response: "Oh, Edmund. It's the lying I find so hurtful."
    • In the first series finale Blackadder S 1 E 6 The Black Seal one of the evilest men in the land who turn up is a Depraved Dwarf named Jack Large whose notoriety precedes him as the unspeakably violent,bull-buggering, priest-killing Jack of no fixed abode. This diminutive bull-fighter seems to like big challenges which makes his reputation seem somewhat well-earned and brings a hundred surreal and better left unsaid images to the mind.
  • In the first episode of the anthology series Black Mirror, the Prime Minister is faced with a dilemma. The royal princess is kidnapped. The kidnapper's demand is that the Prime Minister have sex with a pig on live television or else the princess dies. It's a bit of black comedy when you first hear the concept, but it's NOT played for laughs. (and that was before the reveal of an unproven anedocte involving a Prime Minister and a dead pig, to the writer's amusement)
  • Boston Legal:
    • Denny was shown repeatedly to have a thing for sheep. Also, there was that thing with that camel that one time in the military... The camel, apparently, had no complaints.
    • In another episode, a client has an affair with Wendy... his cow. Which at one point leads Schmidt to say, "But you screw one cow..."
  • On Boy Meets World there is a Flash Forward to a potential future in which the whole gang had broken up and in this future Eric became an insane hermit living in the woods who married a moose. Hopefully it was a platonic marriage...
  • The Boys (2019): Given The Deep can speak to sea creatures (like dolphins) he's the butt of cruel jokes by Homelander and A-Train who both say he has sex with them, but judging by his side of the conversation he has with a dolphin he attempts to rescue, there may be a grain of truth to the jokes. They're eventually proven right in Season 3 after Starlight walks in on him having sex with an octopus.
    • Interviewed by Inside the Boys, showrunner Eric Kripke revealed Amazon was bothered by this implication of a dolphin wanting to be masturbated... and then host Aisha Tyler mentions that dolphin ejaculation is downright lethal, horrifying everyone and leading to the amusing disclaimer "Do not try dolphin sex at home. It's not only dangerous, we're pretty sure it's illegal".
  • The Daily Show started its "Thank You South Carolina" segment after a man from there received press attention for having sex with a horse after having already pled guilty to having had sex with the same horse. And they happened to discover this on the heels of the Sanford scandal.
  • One episode of Family Feud had the question "Name something a lazy man might teach his dog to turn on." One of the answers was "his girlfriend", presumably for shock value.
  • Father Ted: "No, No, Dougal, we must keep away from the idea that we're in love with the horse. It's more that we're friends with the horse."
  • Game of Thrones:
    • The in-universe bawdy song "The Bear and the Maiden Fair" can be taken this way, though the subtext is clear that it's a bear of a man (i.e. large and hairy) who wins said maiden.
    • When Jon tells Ygritte about the Night's Watch Vow of Celibacy, she asks after various potential loopholes, one being if they do it with sheep instead.
    • Tormund attempts to lighten the mood before battle by playing The Münchausen and regaling the others with the time he fucked a bear. In the novels, Tormund counts "Husband to Bears" among his many humorous titles.
    • Implied with Myranda; the reason she wasn't afraid of Ramsay the first time they met was that he couldn't do anything that the dogs didn't.
  • On The Golden Girls, Uncle Nunzio and his pet goat are repeatedly mentioned.
  • In one episode (s26e03) of Have I Got News for You Paul tells this story of a badger.
  • A characteristically bizarre subversion on House: a teenage boy came to the clinic asking for drugs to kill his sex drive, claiming it was because he was very attracted to cows and didn't know how much longer he could hold out. Turned out it was actually his hot stepmother he was attracted to. And he didn't want to admit that. So he pretended he was into cows. Okay.
    • Also, one time, House was talking with Thirteen and another female doctor in his office, while on his computer. The female doctor looks at the computer screen (which cannot be seen) and gets a noticeably squicked out expression. House asks her, "do you have a problem with the naked female form?" Thirteen then says "I just don't think she's used to seeing it spooning with the naked dolphin form." This being House, it was most likely a ploy to get them to go away faster. Probably.
    • In another episode, a clinic patient has a skin condition normally found in horses and related quadrupeds. When she says she's an actress, House jumps to certain conclusions about her "art." In fact, she is playing the Virgin Mary in a live-action Christmas pageant, in which she rides a donkey.
  • In the Inside Amy Schumer skit "Stripper for Dogs", Amy and another stripper show up for a bachelor party that, it turns out, a guy is throwing for his dogs. While Amy entertains the revelers downstairs, the other one goes upstairs with the groom for his "last night as a free man." It doesn't end well.
  • In Jerry Springer (where else?) there is the shocking case of a man who married his horse.
  • Kröd Mändoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire: One of the prisoners whom Kröd frees is there for raping a horse, who's named Horst Draper. It's Played for Laughs.
  • Due to Moral Guardian standards and limited dialogue potential, this is one of the few sex crimes that has never been featured on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. It has, however, been referenced in dialogue between sex-crimes investigators. "His father caught him alone with his new bride, Missy. Missy's a German shepherd."
  • On The League of Gentlemen the Tattsyrup family are said to have a bit of pig in their ancestry (which turns up in their noses), and Hilary Briss is married to a cow. The extent of their relationship is unclear.
  • Letterkenny has a running gag about two residents of the town, Boots and the Ginger, allegedly fucking an ostrich. This continues to devolve into discussions about how only the Ginger did it and how you need at least two people to fuck an ostrich — possibly three.
    • Wayne and Katy later get into a "hick-off" regarding which second-cousin - Daryl's or Dan's - has the bigger hick house. Katy eventually wins by mentioning having seen a gloryhole on the side of the goat pen.
  • Referenced in Lexx: "It's all here. You have babes, boys, beasts, thinner, fatter, hunks, chunks, monks, twins dipped in batter, the wiggle, the jiggle, the oo-la-la, people to spank you, and sheep to go baa" - Schlemmi, Luvliner
  • In Life On Mars, Chris and Ray make sheep noises at a prisoner ("Dicky Fingers") they're picking up for transport. When Sam asks why, Chris refers to this trope. Later, as they're driving, Chris points out a lamb; Dicky responds, "What d'you think I am, a nonce?" ("Nonce" being UK slang for child molester.)
  • The Magicians (2016): Discussed by Margo and some talking animals in Fillory. It turns out they want the right to have sex with and marry humans. Her approval leads them to support her as the High King.
  • Manswers has taken this trope to its extreme, by investigating which animal's genitalia bear the closest resemblance to those of a human woman. Sheep were, of course, among the candidates researched. (Their conclusion? If you're kinky enough to care, it's the dugong. At least, it could explain the Mermaid Problem.)
  • In one episode of M*A*S*H Mulcahy keeps trying to describe The Yearling (a film that was going to be shown) 'about a tender relationship between a boy and a young deer', and each time, the character (Radar, Potter, etc.) would respond with a "Oh yeah, like my (relative), except it was with a (mule, horse)" with an implication that their relative had a more intimate fondness with their chosen animal.
  • In the first season of The Mighty Boosh many "intimate liaisons" with the zoo animals were implied. Howard warns Vince in one episode, not to get too close to any of the animals in the zoo bringing up the example of a (literal) fox in a nearby cage. which apparently was a "Mistake" according to Howard. Apparently in the Mighty Boosh world bestiality is a scandal more like a professor sleeping with a graduate student than how it's viewed in real life...
    • This is probably because animals in the Boosh-verse are sapient. Most of them can talk, and are of comparable intelligence to the human characters. Not only are they capable of consenting to sex with humans, more than often they are the ones who instigate it (who can forget the scene where Vince gets raped by that panda?).
  • Gonzo of The Muppet Show has an on-again, off-again relationship with both anthropomorphic Muppet hen as well as real cows and hens.
  • Corky from Murphy Brown was first runner up at the Miss America contest, but got the crown when the winner was forced to resign. Why?
    Corky: She told everyone she loved animals, but who would have thought to take her literally?
  • Orange Is the New Black: While feeding Little Boo some peanut butter, Big Boo gets the idea to have the dog lick it off more...intimate areas offscreen. Either she had a moment of My God, What Have I Done?, or Little Boo was taken away from her. All she says about it is "It got weird."
  • In Phoenix Nights, there is strong innuendo that Keith Lard (a fire safety officer from Bolton) is into bestiality. He is led away by police, only to be released when an Alsatian fails to testify. In real life, Channel 4 had to apologize to Keith Laird (a fire safety officer from Bolton) who claimed that his reputation was damaged by this show.
  • One episode of QI has Stephen Fry ask, "What is the difference between a Carlisle Surprise, a Reverse Canterbury Delight, and a sheep tied to a lamppost in Cardiff?" Welsh comedian Rob Brydon attacks Stephen for "institutionalized racism that is accepted when it's addressed at the Welsh," answers the last bit by saying you call a sheep tied to a lamppost in Cardiff "a leisure centre," then castigates the other panelists and the audience for laughing.note 
    • There's also a bit in another episode where Stephen Fry says the "You can get a lot from goats. You can get cheese, you can get wool you can get sex-"
    • And let's not forget Stephen's reaction to the pictures illustrating the question "How can a horse catch an eel?"; "That's a rather attractive horse." (Both Rich Hall and Sean Locke immediately retort that they'd rather have the eel.) Stephen's affections for the horse lasted throughout the episode.
    • During a question about Korean proverbs, Canadian comedian Katherine Ryan compared one of the idioms to the Canadian expression "shagging the dog" (a vulgar expression meaning "doing nothing" or "passing the time any which way while bored"). Made even funnier by the ensuing discussion in which nobody actually bothered to clarify what "shagging" means in British English.
      Stephen: NOT IN THIS COUNTRY, MADAM!! In this country when we shag a dog we know what we're doing, and it's pretty hard work, let me tell you.
  • Played for tease on a promo poster for German trash TV eality Queens on Safari. It showed a lady in a very short zebra-striped suit. And three zebras evidently approving.
  • Red Dwarf:
    • Lister complains that he's personally broken four of the five holy commandments he supposedly passed down to the Cat people; "I'd've broken the fifth, but there's no sheep on board."
    • Referenced in this exchange from Psirens:
    Pete Tranter's Sister: How long has it been since you last made love to a woman?
    Lister: I admit it's been a while...
    PTS: It's been over three million years, Dave.
    Lister: I prefer to count it in Ice Ages, then it's only four. And if you count it in leap Ice Ages, hardly even one.
    PTS: That's a long time, Dave, for a man of your drives.
    Lister: That's a long time for an Albanian shepherd who's allergic to wool. note 
  • Subverted with the usual sense of taste in an episode of The Sarah Silverman Program. Sarah is arrested for bestiality when she's caught licking her dog's asshole... which she only does because apparently, it tastes delicious.
  • Probably innumerable examples on Saturday Night Live, but several that stand out include
    • A census worker interviewing an addled Christopher Walken, who reveals that his wife is a bobcat.
    • A spoof of daytime talk shows that send unruly teens to boot camps, in which Christina Ricci plays a girl whose mother catches her playing with the family dog, and is afraid that she will give birth to "biracial dog babies".
    • On one show, Woody Harrelson heads a trio of lonesome singing cowboys - one lyric being "And the horse starts to look good by the campfire..."
    • In one skit of Celebrity Jeopardy, for his answer/wager in Final Jeopardy, Sean Connery draws a picture of Alex Trebek having sex with a horse - of course, we only see the top half of the photo.
    • One skit combines this with the Mermaid Problem in a spoof of The Little Mermaid. After the sailor is saved from drowning, he meets the mermaid, and falls in love with her...until he realizes that not only is her anatomy different, but that she tends to go wild with all sorts of sea creatures. She also reveals that the only reason she exists was because her father, who was an ordinary human got drunk one night, broke into an aquarium, and had sex with a halibut. And he in turn reveals that he's had sex with "a LOT of stuff".
      Mermaid: [singing] I love all creatures equally, wherever they reside.
      Sailor: That's lovely!
      Mermaid: [singing] I get it on with tuna, I've gone down on a shark! I've got films of me with a manatee-
      Sailor: [grossed out] Alright, alright! That's enough! That's enough!
      Mermaid: What's wrong?
      Sailor: You have sex with fish?!
      Mermaid: Fish, shrimp, turtles... I'll pretty much bend over for anything with fins.
  • Mick 'The Bull' Daly in The Savage Eye:
    Mick 'The Bull' Daly: You can kill and eat animals - that's no problem, like. That's fine, you kill them and eat them. But once you start riding them, then society's like 'Oh no, you can't ride them.' But you can kill them and eat them, like. But if the animal had a choice, huh?

  • In Scream Queens, bestiality is apparently among the atrocities that have been committed by Kappa Kappa Tau under Chanel Oberlin's reign, according to Dean Munsch. Chanel swears that that goat had had too much to drink and it was entirely his fault.
  • Referenced in Scrubs:
    Dr. Cox: Don'cha see, Barbie, I would rather listen to you go on and on about the joys of dolphin sex.
    Elliot: Dolphin trainer sex. My boyfriend is a dolphin trainer.
    Dr. Cox: Here that's a shame, because the whole dolphin thing used to make you so interesting.
    • Another reference with that dolphin trainer:
      Sean: Why are things so much easier with dolphins?
      Elliot: Probably because you're not trying to date the dolphin.
      Sean: Oh, God, no. Not after that big talk they gave us.
    • Then there's this scene with that same trainer.
    • And again with JD when there's a rumor about JD being into bestiality because he practiced kissing on Rowdy (JD and Turk's dead stuffed dog). Later when they have two dead stuffed dogs (Rowdy and Stephen) JD is able to tell them feeling their groins. He refuses to explain why.
  • This is one of the few kinks Sex and the City never tackled—Charlotte was supposed to walk in on her boyfriend receiving fellatio from his dog (her subplot for the episode was that she didn't like giving them) and dump him in horror and disgust, but TPTB realized that viewers would have the same reaction and stop watching.
  • In the Sirens (US) episode "Rachel McAdams Topless", Hank, Johnny and Brian, having agreed to erase a patient's browser history before calling his family, snoop through said history and find a video of a woman and a horse performing an unspecified act. They spend the rest of the episode trying to get rid of the mental image.
  • In Sons of Anarchy after Tig spills his bike during a charity run and requires medical attention he's picked-up at the hospital by bounty-hunters over an outstanding warrant in Oregon. The charge? ...indecent exposure in a livestock transport.
  • In Strangers with Candy, Jerri Blank never quite got to explain what it was she did with the donkey in Tijuana, but... it's Jerri. This trope was definitely involved.
  • Mentioned in The Thick of It when Malcolm gives Olly a bollocking for questioning one of his more unscrupulous schemes: "Don't start with the moral objections, you fuckin' Blue Peter badge-wearing ponce! Go and make a contribution to fuckin' Amnesty International! Go and buy a goat that a whole village can fuck!"
    • Later on, Phil compares Olly to "the man who fucked the monkey that gave us AIDS", in the sense that he has created a runaway problem and is now moaning about its scale.
  • In the Torchwood episode "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", Captain John Hart expresses an attraction to poodles.
    Gwen: Do you ever stop?
    John: What, five minutes to live and you want me to behave? Oh, that's gorgeous...
    Gwen: That's a poodle!
    John: [growling] S'nice!
  • In Trailer Park Boys, Ricky randomly tries to make a joke about this to Julian, completely unrelated to what they were doing at the time.
  • Owen, on The Vicar of Dibley, is initially implied to do this. When Radio Dibley ran a Moral Maze style programme on the topic "Is Sex With Poodles Always Wrong?", he was the one speaking in favour. By the end of the series, they'd done away with all pretense and flatout stated he was regularly having sex with animals, calling a sheep his girlfriend in one episode. Jim was also stated to be at least attracted to sheep. Luckily, by that point Refuge in Audacity had become a staple for pretty much every character who wasn't Geraldine or David.
  • The performers on Whose Line Is It Anyway? tend to default to sheep if they ever bring up this trope.
  • The Wire

    • Jay Landsman is at one point seen telling the final part of a raunchy joke about a hunter raped by a bear. Jay is funny by default, but there's the silent but appalled reaction to the joke of the woman among his audience. She withdraws, clearly thinking that Jay is an asshole.

  • "So What?" by Anti-Nowhere League (popularized by Metallica's cover of it), includes, among other obscenities "And I've fucked a sheep, I've fucked a goat, I rammed my cock right down his throat!"
  • The Ivor Biggun song "Halfway Up Virginia" details the sexual exploits of a stereotypical hillbilly. The singer gleefully admits to having sex with 49 sheep, a mule, a golden retriever, a skunk, a woodchuck, an unspecified number of polecats, an unspecified number of raccoons, a hound dog, a groundhog, an opossum and pretty much anything that moves doesn't run away fast enough. He then makes the following statement:
    "And every last one is female,
    'Cos there ain't nothing strange about me!"
  • blink-182 has the song I Wanna Fuck A Dog In The Ass. On the Mark, Tom, and Travis Show, the banter between songs includes Tom claiming that he will get sexier as the show goes on due to the heat in the arena and the exertion of performing a concert. Mark speculates that Tom will aso get fatter and fatter, "Because dog semen is very high in calories." "Yeah, don't eat dog semen, kids; we hear it's the number one cause of bad breath."

  • This is referenced as the fate of one of the Old India Hands mentioned in the Noël Coward song "I Wonder What Happened To Him":
    He got chucked out of the club in Bombay,
    for, apart from his mess bills exceeding his pay,
    he took to... "pig-sticking" note ... in quite the wrong way.
    I wonder what happened to him?
  • In Data's "Don't Sing" video, we see a guy get a beej by a woman clad in a giant fur coat while driving, which leads to him crashing his car, all while being intercut between shots of many screwed-up things. At the very end, it's revealed that the woman was really a dog.
  • The Spaniard song "La Cabra" (translated as "The Goat") from the gag band Los Farlopez is Exactly What It Says on the Tin until they kill her after having too much sex with her.
  • The infamous Bawdy Song, "The Good Ship Venus" has a verse about the ship's dog, Rover. You can pretty much guess what the pirate narrators do to the hound in question.
  • GWAR's "Fuckin' an Animal" fits this in as strict a sense as possible. Their song "Sexecutioner" does so a little bit more subtly.
  • The many strange habits of Harald, in the Swedish song Haralds konstiga vanor, apparently include getting a little too friendly with sheep.
  • The Jad Wio song "Ophélie" is about a 'prohibited' kind of very private show where a woman has sex with a horse.
  • Tom Lehrer:
    • From the introduction to his song "In Old Mexico" on the album An Evening Wasted with Tom Lehrer: "His educational career began, interestingly enough, in agricultural school, where he majored in animal husbandry, until they... caught him at it one day..."
    • And the classic line from "I Got It From Agnes": "She then gave it to Daniel/Whose spaniel has it now"
  • The Brazilian song "Mundo Animal", by Vulgar Humor experts Mamonas Assassinas, opens with what could be translated as:
    Eatingnote  armadillo is good
    Too bad it hurts your back
    That animal's too short
    That's why I prefer goats
  • "The Lonely Shepherd" by Pig with the Face of a Boy is about a shepherd who slept with another shepherd's wife, and then starts to feel a bit lonely...

    "Some people wonder why Scotsmen like sheep/ 'Tis only because we need something that deep."
  • Bob Rivers' "Dirty Deeds (Done with Sheep)" (a parody of an AC/DC song). That is all.
    My friend Larry has a little lamb / Her fleece is white as snow. He keeps braggin 'bout her night and day / Someone should tell him "No"
  • The Tiger Lillies' "Farmyard Filth" is an album full of these.
  • Many of Wesley Willis' songs deal with bestiality ("Suck a Cheetah's Dick", "Drink a Camel's Cum"). A schizophrenic, Willis believed that demons were tormenting him, and that the songs would disgust the demons enough to leave him alone.
  • "Weird Al" Yankovic. "Virus Alert". One of the dreaded features of the virus is that it will "make you physically attracted to sheep". Maybe not as bad as causing a major rift in time and space, but still...
    • The bickering couple in "Jerry Springer" have cheated on each other with (among others) her dog Woofie and his pet goat.
      "That goat doesn't love you!"
    • In "Talk Soup", one of the secrets the singer wishes to share on national television is that he has a thing for poodles and rubber underwear.

    Mythology and Religion 
  • In the law books of The Bible, especially the Book of Exodus, anyone (male or female) who has sex with an animal is to be executed. The animal is also considered Defiled Forever, and must be slaughtered. The Old Testament forbids shepherds from going out alone (making them leave in pairs) specifically to prevent this "abomination," and Exodus has a bit about those who lie down with beasts. In the apocrypha of the Torah based on the story of Noah, meanwhile, bestiality was apparently so commonplace in antediluvian Earth that Noah's attempt to send out a raven to check whether the flood was over got derailed when the raven accused him of trying to steal its mate in its absence (before flying off and having sex with an eagle).
  • In mainstream Judeo-Christian Tradition, Beastiality is considered a serious sin punishable by eternal damnation. This goes back to Exodus 22:19, which states "Whoever lies [has sex] with an animal shall surely be put to death." Deuteronomy and Leviticus repeated this rule.
  • In Islam, Beastiality is also a serious sin. There is a Hadith by Ibn ‘Abbaas in which the Prophet Muhammad tells his followers "If you find that someone has had intercourse with an animal, kill him and kill the animal too."
  • It's thought that Witches in their Sabbath had sex with demons in the form of animals, including Satan as a black goat.
  • The märkäkorva Lappalainen (wet-behind-the-ears Lapp) in The Kalevala, who has humped, not only his mother and his sister, but also all the mares in his household.
  • Norse Mythology: Loki Really Gets Around. He is the mother (yes, mother) of Odin's eight-legged horse Sleipnir. (That was his way of distracting the workhorse of the Jötun who built Asgard, to cheat him out of his payment.)
  • Classical Mythology: The Minotaur was born when Poseidon punished King Minos by making his wife fall in love with the bull Minos had been supposed to sacrifice to the gods but hadn't.
  • Subverted with Chinese Mythology and popular folklore, where interspecies pairings are common and considered BENEFICIAL in terms of the resulting offspring, who is often physically perfect/beautiful, highly intelligent, a prodigy, or inherited magical abilities from parents. Many protagonists are actually ANIMAL SPIRITS and the stories revolve around their interspecies romance with mostly humans.
    • For example, Madam White Snake is the title and main character of her story, and the audience is meant to be sympathetic to her when she is betrayed by her human husband.
    • An entire origin myth of several ethnic groups living in the central-eastern region of China revolves around their dog ancestor Pan Hu, the Dog King. When a king requested help in defeating his rival, his pet dog kills and retrieves the head of said rival. The reward was his daughter's hand, and the king had no choice but to fulfill that promise. After taking her into the mountains, Pan Hu meditates to attain human form (in several stories, the princess interrupts the process and he is left with a dog's head). They produce many children between them, who become the ancestors of various tribes that live in that mountain and hold Pan Hu as their common forebear. These ethnic groups have travelled and brought their culture overseas to places like Canada, and hold many proud festivals celebrating and proclaiming their connection with Pan Hu the Dog King.
    • Though whether this is a full subversion is up for debate, as these animal spirits are noted to have attained sapience and human form via meditation, effectively surpassing their original 'base beast' form and placing them spiritually and intellectually on par with normal humans. However, the stories always remind people that they are in fact, still animals, and that their 'humanity' is still in some ways, a mimicry. They are however, not stigmatized for what they are or for pursuing relationships with humans, but are respected for their ability to reach this stage in enlightenment and the magical powers they attained while doing so.
  • Also subverted by Japanese Mythology and popular folklore (as well as popular culture, as Japanese porn is notorious for eroticizing women having sex with animals, especially those with tentacles, e.g. the infamous classic painting, The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife, where a woman has sex with an octopus) , as the national traditional religion Shinto is similarly animist, where literally everything has a spirit, which becomes sentient with age. This is best seen in the case of stories involving the Kitsune who are foxes who magically shapeshift between human and animal forms, where the females are almost always idealized as the perfect wives (though the love stories usually have bittersweet tragic ends, as is customary in Japanese traditional romances). In fact, the word Kit-su-ne literally means Come sleep with me.
    • However, its also played straight on occasion. Perhaps one of the most infamous examples is "The Eight Canine Heroes Of House Satomi", a series of paintings illustrating a Japanese folk tale of a dog who marries his owner's daughter after fulfilling a task, who proceeds to birth him eight prodigious sons... and kill herself in shame because of this. Said paintings depict said daughter being graphically ravaged by the dog.
  • Played straight with Korean Mythology and popular folklore, where the Korean version of the Kitsune, the female-only Gumiho is villified as almost always a maliciously man-eating monster.
  • Hinduistic Mythology: Consider for example the classic Indian story "The Adventures of the Ten Princes" which contains a Long List of the carnal misbehaviors of gods and sages, including the sun god making out with a mare, the wind god with a monkey and sage Atri with a gazelle (and we're not talking about Gazelle). See also the Other Wiki on this trope for "The Nayika as the lovers of all creatures" (all meaning ''all''), which is somewhat justified as she here symbolizes a cosmic principle of love and fertility.

  • Jackson somehow ends up defending bestiality in a Plumbing the Death Star episode about fictional doctors. Specifically, he casually mentions there's nothing wrong with a man having sex with a swan so long as the swan was originally a person. His co-hosts, Zammit and Duscher, are too stunned to respond with a complete sentence before resorting to just asking for some type of justification. Jackson reasons that as long as its consensual, it's fine, but Zammit ends the discussion by asking the audience to applaud if they agree with Jackson. The silence is deafening... until two people applaud and cause the everyone around them to stare at them in disgust.
    Jackson: Are you telling me if I mind jumped into a swan and then made sweet love to someone, that wouldn't be okay?
    Zammit: [nods head] That's not okay.
    Duscher: That's textbook not okay, that's like rule one!

    Professional Wrestling 
  • In October 1999, The Godfather tried to offer his hoes to Mideon before a match. Mideon stated "I don't do hoes, but do you have any farm animals?" Note that Mideon's former gimmick is that of Phineas I. Godwinn, a pig farmer.
  • During a match pitting Alex Shelley and Delirious against Roderick Strong and Jack Evans of Generation Next at Ring of Honor's Fifth Year Festival, CM Punk advised against spitting on people as Strong and Evans had, explaining it was the first step to creating diseases and sleeping with Chimpanzees.
  • On a 2010 episode of TNA iMPACT!, Ric Flair made one of his infamous rambling promos, wherein he claimed to have had sex with Zenyatta. A race horse.

  • In an episode of Just a Minute recorded in Cardiff, one of the panelists was challenged for "deviating from the subject" because he was talking about sheep. He quickly responded "But sheep aren't considered a deviation in Wales."
  • In the Corby episode of Mark Steel's in Town, he asks why their stereotype of rival town Kettering includes sex with sheep. He's quickly informed by the audience that's because it actually happened once.
    Mark: Oh, that's what you don't want in your town, isn't it? That's the jokes for the next thousand years: They all do it, all the time.
  • Opie & Anthony broadcast a clip of a German porno featuring a man... um... "skewering" a chicken. And it's obvious, from the changing tone of the chicken's squawking, when the penetration begins.
  • In a 2021 episode of The News Quiz, one of the questions involves a farm that hires out goats to appear in Zoom meetings.
    Chris McCausland: I'm not saying that a website that rents out goats for five minutes at six pounds a pop ... it can be an innocent thing, but what I want to know is: why are you clicking that link in the first place?

    Tabletop Games 
  • Exalted features the Lunars, blessed of Luna and boon companions to the Solars. They generally have beast-like traits (including a "totem animal" they can change into at will), and with this comes the ability to breed Beastmen. Thing is, to do it, one of the parties has to be bestial, and the other party has to be humanoid... and the Lunars can be either.
    • It is noted that many Lunars aren't necessarily depraved even despite this... but there are some straight examples. Raksi, a Lunar queen of a massive brood of half-ape offspring is, among other things, an infamous baby-eating cannibal sorceress.
  • In Settlers of Catan, a speaker intends to offer to trade his lumber resources to anyone willing to pay in wool. What comes out, though, is "I have wood for sheep."
  • The Gangrel clan sourcebook for Vampire: The Requiem has a historian claiming that the first Gangrel were made when barbarian kings had relations with animals, and were born of ancient sorcery playing on the twisted beings that emerged. Mind you, that may not be the truth (to put it mildly), but man, you can just see most of the clan walking out into sunlight if that turned out to be the truth, can't you?
    • "The Conception of the Garou", Size 2 (picture)
      Gangrel Kindred roll Generation with difficulty of Willpower and suffer successes as Aggravated (reflexive Fortitude soak possible);
      Malkavian Kindred roll Willpower with difficulty of 9 to resist laughing uncontrollably;
      Ventrue Kindred roll the same roll as Malkavians to resist thowing up;
      Garou and other Changing Breeds roll Willpower with difficulty of 8 to resist paralysis.
      For the curious, it's note  Really.
    • For the Garou in the cWoD, at least occasional bestiality is practically a part of life; they can't breed true with each other (any offspring from such unions is usually deformed or otherwise 'defective' in some way as well as generally sterile) and need to mate with humans or wolves to have a shot at having actually viable Garou offspring, and there's at least anecdotal evidence that favoring one branch of the 'family' too much over the other actually is detrimental to a bloodline in the long run. (Replacing "wolves" with the relevant animal type, the same holds true for the other kinds of weres in the game as well.)
      • Of course, being shapeshifters, it's rather debateable whether screwing a wolf when you yourself are for all intents a wolf as well (albeit with human intelligence) should be considered bestiality. The Black Spiral Dancers on the other hand side, often don't care about their partner's shape. Or consent, for that matter...
  • Considering how grimdark the setting already is, in addition to a literal god of excess existing, it's almost a certainty that there are Slaaneshi cults who engage in this regularily in Warhammer 40,000.
  • Oddly enough, subverted in Warhammer Fantasy, where it's shown that to the Chaos-following beastmen, having sex with a human is something none of them could ever fathom doing.

  • The play Equus by Peter Schaffer concerns a young stablehand's issues with being virtually incapable to distinguish between affection for horses and sexual attraction, thanks to a screwed-up childhood. It being a drama piece, it's also pretty disturbing.
  • Rochelle Owens' 1967 play Futz was about a farmboy who loved his pig.
  • Edward Albee's The Goat or Who Is Sylvia.
  • The Dauphin in Shakespeare's Henry V is rather disconcertingly fond of his horse:
    Dauphin: I once writ a sonnet in his praise and began thus: "Wonder of nature —"
    Constable: I have heard a sonnet begin so to one's mistress.
    Dauphin: Then did they imitate that which I composed to my courser, for my horse is my mistress.
    • The dialogue continues in this vein for quite a while.
  • In MID-LIFE! the Crisis Musical, the song "He Got What He Deserves", one of the divorcées notes an ex's barnyard encounter after the split with great relish and multiple sheep puns.
  • Played for tragedy in Our Breath is as Light as a Hummingbird's Spine, since there's no way to have sex with a bird. However, the main character does glue feathers and a beak onto a sex toy. (Decide for yourself whether that's Squick, unintentionally funny, or just as pathetic as it's supposed to be.)
  • The Reduced Shakespeare Company's The Millennium Musical (Abridged) has jokes on these lines about "The Scottish Guy Who Cloned Dolly the Sheep".
  • In Rimers of Eldritch, Skelly Manor first appears onstage with local boys baaing at him. Nothing explicit is stated and nothing is ever proven. It's used more to demonstrate Skelly's isolation from the town and how rumors move through it.
  • In Rock of Ages, Dennis Du Pree uses this trope to convince Stacee Jaxx to play at his bar.
    Dennis: Remember the time we fucked that llama?
  • Played for comedy in Twisted: The Untold Story of a Royal Vizier with Prince Achmed, who, after being attacked by the Princess' tiger, becomes known as "Tiger Fucker" to his people. He doesn't like it.

  • Some adult novelty stores carry inflatable sheep with a belt to be worn from the waist. "Great for bachelor parties!"

  • Assassin's Creed II has a mission where you deliver a message to a farmer, invoking Leviticus 18:23. You can guess what it refers to...
  • In Black & White, at one point you're asked to get specific supplies to help a troupe of very poor singers finish building their boat (specifically, wood and food). However, you can also drop off various other things, including a sheep. This elicits the response "Ah, a sheep! Sheep have many uses... and the voyage is long...".
    • Ironically, if you drop off a woman, the response is much less enthusiasticnote .
  • Conan Exiles: Your character starts crucified for three randomly-generated crimes, one of which can be "fornicating with animals."
  • With the Conclave DLC for Crusader Kings II, if you're a lunatic, you can get an event to appoint your horse as your chancellor, and the game will generate a horse character to fill the position, but the horse is infertile because of a special trait (you can still seduce it though). But through an bug, you can generate horse characters without the special trait. Now you can marry and have children with them. One particular AAR involved one player's journey to restore the Roman Empire as a horse. Players have also reported taking AI horses prisoner after sacking a castle and forcing them into concubinage.
    • In addition, with the Way Of Life DLC, female (or gay male) lunatics who have taken the Seduction focus may get an event where they can be seduced by a centaur in their castle's stables, with a chance of pregnancy for female characters (when the child is born, he/she will have no father listed by the game, not even an unacknowledged one). But since your character is insane, we have no idea what they actually had sex with.
  • One of the random conversations that NPCs can have in The Darkness is one NPC asking if he gave a moose a million dollars to have sex with him, would it work?
    Guy 1: If I gave a moose a million dollars would it have sex with me?
    Guy 2: Well it would have to some sort of genetically engineered smart moose for it to work.
    Guy 1: Where could I find such a moose?
    Guy 2: Sweden is open about sexuality so they probably allow bestiality as well.
    Guy 1: Heh-heh...naughty Swedish mooses...
  • Dragon Age: Origins has a brothel, the Pearl, where you can sleep with anything, anything. When the Madam is told to "Surprise Me", one of the random options has you waking up in a daze with a goat that looks at you funny.
    • In both the preceding and Dragon Age II, a "Surprise Me" may end with two nugs (miniature aardvarks with creepy hands) that "avoid eye contact, trying to look busy".
  • Fable III: When the player has the option of searching Depraved Bisexual Reaver's bedroom, you can find caged chickens in there.
  • Fallout:
    • From Fallout: New Vegas, you got Cook-Cook, one of the Fiends leaders. Flamethrower-wielding pyromaniacal psychotic rapist who goes berserk when you kill his Brahmin Queenie. It's not stated outright, but heavily implied he screwed it. His cut dialogue makes his "affections" of Queenie a lot more disturbing.
    • When joining the Brotherhood of Steel in Fallout 4, during a medical examination you are questioned as to whether you've ever had sexual relations with a "non-human species". When asked if that happens often, the doctor replies "You'd be surprised how many Wastelanders answer yes to that question."
  • Professor Hojo of Final Fantasy VII is introduced — as in, his very first scene — discussing his plans to breed Aerith with another research experiment in an attempt to create a life form with a long lifespan. That experiment turns out to be Red XIII. Thankfully, when Hojo arranges for them to be together, Red himself has no desire to go through with it and attacks Hojo once freed.
  • Fate/Grand Order:
    • An inverted example with Raikou's horse Kyogoku. Kyogoku's dialogues with fellow horses reveal that he's very into Raikou's Stripperific bikini and her Gag Boobs and he hopes, if possible, that they could grow even bigger. The other horses (Bailong, Dun Stallion and Llamrei) are very disturbed by his pervertness, to the point that Llamrei goes Pervert Revenge Mode on him just for saying his perverted desires out loud. Funnily enough, the riders of the other three mentioned horses have also large busts, yet only Kyogoku acts like this.
    • When Europa is summoned as Servant Rider, she reveals that ever since that incident where Zeus seduced her in the form of a bull, she is attracted to bulls, and even got a bull that resembles how Zeus looked.
  • Gothic has the annoying Mud, who follows you everywhere while telling annoying stories about himself. Among other things, he mentions that he was thrown in the prison colony for "liking animals too much".
    • One of the ways in which you can taunt the warrior Kharim is suggesting that his father was having "fun" with sheep. Kharim's reply is an embarrassed "well, there were rumors..."
  • Lets insert another Rockstar game here: Grand Theft Auto has this too. Vice City, from the set of a porn flick: "Careful! The snake was more expensive than you!" Liberty City: You have to pick up from the street some porn mags involving donkeys.
  • Played with in HuniePop. It features a character called Momo, a Half-Human Hybrid cat girl instead of an actual animal, who you unlock by dropping a bag of fish outside. Nevertheless, after you have sex with her, you promptly unlock the achievement 'Bestiality...'
  • In Hyrule Warriors, it's revealed that one of the items in Cia's massive Stalker Shrine to Link is a statue of his wolf form from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

    Hick NPC: ...but what you don't hear is what you can do with the cows afterward.
  • One of the services you can reach on the phone in Jazzpunk is the Barnyard Boudoir. It is implied that it's just a scam where they first charge exorbitant amounts money for their "Steers and Studs package" on their marks' credit cards then exploit this trope to discourage their marks from getting chargebacks.
  • Leisure Suit Larry 1: In the Land of the Lounge Lizards: If you have Larry take the pills, he becomes uncontrollably horny, and wonders about the location of the little dog he saw outside... cue a "game over" prompt where you're informed Larry was arrested for bestiality.

  • In Mass Effect 2, if you try to talk to Mordin in the Normandy, you may get this exchange:
    Shepard: Have you got a minute to talk?
    Mordin: Perhaps later. Trying to determine how Scale-itch got onto Normandy. Sexually transmitted disease only carried by varren. Implications...unpleasant...
  • In the video game of Monty Python's The Meaning of Life, there's a part where clicking on something brings up "goat porn", and then Eric Idle starts yelling about, "Hey, everyone, look here right now! This guy likes goats!"
  • There are two instances of this trope in the (in)famous Neverwinter Nights Game Mod A Dance with Rogues:
    • In one of the Seven Lessons, the Princess encounters a mastiff who shows great interest in her private parts.
    • In order to infiltrate a demon cult in the later half of the game, the Princess must undertake an initiation. She is first required to strip, may drink an aphrodisiac, then enter a cage to "offer herself" to four demon dogs. However, if she declines to drink the aphrodisiac and doesn't say anything to offend the high priest, she'll instead be forced to watch another girl get sexually assaulted by the dogs. However, there's the option to stop it by attacking and killing the demon dogs whether the princess herself or the other girl has to go into the cage.
  • In No One Lives Forever, when advancing through the corridors of the Big Bad's base, you hear a man whispering love words to someone, something like: "Now we are all alone..." Then you open a door and find that man alone with a goat. The man says: "Oh,, how did this goat got in here?" You have the option of shooting them both.
    • Also, you find references to H.A.R.M. goons and their, ahem, “recreation” with sheep throughout the game.
  • Averted with the eponymous Octodad and his wife Scarlet: no one bats an eye that an octopus is married to a human, because they don't seem to realize Octodad is an octopus. And the only two that did were a psycho that thought marine life was invading the surface and Octodad's daughter. Even Scarlet didn't know until the end of the sequel. Considering she had thought something much worse was straining their relationship, she's pretty cool with the reveal. (Their son did question where he and his sister came from though.) At least a few Lets Plays ran with this trope, though:
    Markiplier: She's like [in a horrified voice] "I had sex with an octopus!"
  • In Overlord, at one point you and your minions bust into the headquarters of a succubus-worshiping sex cult. Bust down one of the locked doors in the headquarters, and you'll find several cultists and a sheep.
  • Pokémon Black and White: More implied than direct, but Yamask is capable of breeding with Pokemon (who are the animals of the Pokemon world, of course) of the Amorphous or Mineral egg groups. Yamask were once human, which makes this Squick.
    • Same game, same category, there's a rumor apparently backed by Hint of God that N Harmonia is the human son of a Pokemon. Said character is known to have a human father, therefore... Almost certainly subverted in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 when N mentions that he was raised by Pokemon as a young child and strongly implies that Ghetsis kidnapped him.
      • Made even weirder by the fact that the #1 suspect for his Pokemon parent, Zoroark, does not belong to the Human-like egg group (despite being bipedal).
    • Distinctly subverted in the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl installments, where one of the mythology/fairy tale books in the Canalave Library says that man and 'mon were once equal partners, with no difference between them. The English translation says they "ate at one table"; the Japanese version outright says they intermarried. This is all further explored in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, where part of the lore includes a man who married a Froslass, which is in turn partially based on the traditional Japanese myth of a man marrying a yuki-onna.
    • In Pokémon Colosseum, an old woman NPC in Agate Village asks Rui if Wes is her boyfriend, then she introduces them to her "boyfriend" ...who is a Mightyena. It's possible that she was just joking ...hopefully.
    • In Pokémon X and Y, a female trainer states she loves going wild with her pokemon, which is a Tentacool. That joke goes back to the first generation; one of the manga had, as a Funny Background Event, a newspaper headline of a girl complaining that her Tentacool misbehaved with her in the bath. Several chapters later, she is shown bathing with her Tentacool again..
      • One little girl at the Skiddo farm gives you the TM for Attract, and says she feels like the Skiddo used it on her.
    • In Pokémon Sun and Moon, you can encounter two female Golfers outright harassing a Machamp and fawning over its muscles at a hotel. It turns out to just be a guy in costume, but they didn't know that.
  • In the Perpetual Testing Initiative of Portal 2, Aperture Rituals needs a willing volunteer of astronauts, war heroes, and Olympians to "make love to a giant bird" in order to fulfill a prophecy and stall the ends of days.
  • Power Pro-kun Pocket 6: In Happiness Island the protagonist can choose to slack off at the Happiness Herb fields to recover health, and the more costly variant of this is getting... healed... by a goat named Masako. Choose it enough times and he gets stuck in the island with her during the epilogue. Naturally, what's going on is only implied, as this labor camp story full of murder was rated for all ages after all!
  • Team Fortress 2: The Soldier, at least, believes the opposing team's Sniper to have a kangaroo wife, as he offers to send "her" condolences as one of his domination quotes.
  • Red Dead Redemption is fond of this: a stranger mission (entitled "Who Are You To Judge?") involves returning a horse to its very affectionate owner, who has named the horse 'Lucy' and refers to her as his "girl". The horse thief who accompanies you on said mission comments that her "daddy kept goats". And lastly there's an advertisement in the newspaper for a publication called Sexing Livestock Quarterly. It sure is lonely out west...
  • In Rogue Legacy, Bestiality is an upgrade that lets you unlock the Dragon class. Evidently the family are just that desperate.
  • Occurs within the first playable minute of Rogue Warrior:
    Mission Control: What's your status?
    Dick Marcinko: It's a total goatfuck!
    • As for what "goatfuck" means in Marcinko-ese, it means things have gone completely FUBAR. Think a cross between goat rope and clusterfuck.
  • In Rome: Total War, if your general is constantly out on campaign, his retinue may eventually include a Pet Sheep.
    "Being away from home and loved ones... can be a lonely life."
  • In The Shrouded Isle, the flavor text for being ousted as a pervert has the character assure you that their activities "don't hurt the squid." Yes, Vicar Everton, *that's* what concerns me about it...
  • In Tony Hawk's Underground, a police officer in Tampa, Florida pulls over your van for a busted tail light, expired license plate, and a "Cops push Mongo" bumper sticker, and your van gets impounded. While roaming the city later, you can find the same officer hiding behind a strip club standing behind a goat...
  • A quest to disgrace a supermodel in Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines results in catching her in a threesome with a llama.
  • In Wasteland 2 when entering Happy Valley for the first time you meet a merchant named Fred Darvis. When asked about life in Red Skorpion Militia territory, he says that the Skorpions stole, burnt, and raped everything in the valley and that his pet goat didn't walk right for a week.
  • World of Warcraft:
    • There is something of a Running Gag among the fanbase about the possible origins of the Tauren race. This was codified by the WoW machinima rendering of The Internet Is for Porn, which concludes with the hilarious rebus: Human + Cow = Tauren.
    • In an actual canon example; the night elves' goddess, Elune, who by all official accounts looks like a big glowing night elf woman, had an affair with the demigod Malorne, whose only known form was that of a giant (read, two hundred feet tall) stag. This resulted in the birth of Cenarius, who looked like a centaur with a night elf upper body and a stag lower body. Being that these are deities, this is justified; just look at the mythology examples above.

  • 8-Bit Theater: Red Mage. Animal Husbandry. That is all.
    Black Mage: Why is that your answer for everything? How is that your answer for everything?!
  • Ansem Retort provides this gem:
    Sora: Where do mermaids come from?
    Ariel: Well, when a man loves a dolphin more than society says he should...
    • In addition, Larxene got a fortune blunt from Yuffie's Chinese restaurant which said "Small animals will bring you great happiness" and jokingly added "... in bed!"
  • There's a running gag in Brathalla that Tyr's proclamations of loving animals to be taken as an admittance that he's a zoophile, to where Fenrir asked him not to get too close.
  • Some of Irwin Cardozo's webcomics have used bestiality as a punchline.
    • One strip has a doctor chewed out for having sex with one of his patients. When the doctor asks what's wrong with that, the man reprimanding him answers that it's wrong because he's "a f**king vet".
    • A woman asks a man if he believes in puppy love. The man answers that he did, but then makes a disturbing comment implying that he thought the woman was talking about sex with dogs.
    • In the hospital, a woman gives birth to a baby with a Caucasian torso, Asian limbs, and a black head, the implication of the mixed ethnicities being that the child was fathered by men of different races. After the doctor slaps the baby to get him to breathe, the mother expresses relief that her child didn't bark.
  • Even the Furry Fandom gets in on this gag sometimes. Background information for Concession mentions that the Church of Gaia is looked down upon somewhat in-universe for its advocation of sex between furries and non-anthropomorphic animals. Artie's doctor is briefly mentioned to have a fetish for sharks, and after the incident with Chelsie Artie claims Joel has no right to judge him because of "that time you woke up with that feral dog".
  • In DM of the Rings, the DM/Tolkien explains how the Rohirrim are such excellent riders. The players paraphrase it as "The guys with unnaturally close relations with their horses". Cue Gimli rolling a natural 1 on his diplomacy check...
    Gimli: Tell me your name, horse-f
    Aragorn: GIMLI!
  • The titular protagonist of Dog Nigga was the product of a drunk raping a dog, who proceeded to die from the pregnancy. As such, his stated goal is to rape his father in revenge.
  • The only reason the protagonists of Exterminatus Now manage to remain employed is due to them blackmailing their employer, Inquisition Commander Schaefer, with the knowledge of his chicken fetish. He makes it almost too easy at times.
  • Florence and Winston's relationship in Freefall isn't exactly this, but it's referenced in these terms a few times (most obviously when Winston remarks that it's inappropriate for a doctor to get involved with his patients, but even less appropriate for a veterinarian to do so). Given who the more proactive party is, it is also treated as something else.
  • Completely averted in Funny Farm. A male black sheep can marry a human woman and nobody bats an eyelash. The guilt that Mewn and Mavis feel over sleeping together early on isn't because of this trope, but because they were raised Catholic.
  • Tomato from A Game of Fools is pretty heavily implied to swing this way, among many, many other bizarre fetishes.
  • Katerina of Gunnerkrigg Court develops a mutual attraction with a boy named Alistair who is visiting the Court for a week. To make a long story short, he gets permanently turned into a bird at the end of that week. Now, this in itself is innocent enough; after all, she fell in love with Alistair while he was still human, and she didn't know anything about him turning into a bird until right when he was about to leave. But immediately after this whole arc, Katerina is later shown sharing with Antimony a picture of a "cute boy" — in an ornithological journal. She also seems to have an implied bird fetish in later strips.
  • Lilith leaves Adam in Holy Bibble partially due to her introduction to him involving sheep-sex. In her disgust with Adam, Lilith admits that she'd rather mate with the sheep than Adam.
  • Homestuck has Equius, who has a Porn Stash of obscene portraits of horses musclebeasts. Nepeta also enjoys them... and then it's later implied that all of Alternia believes in this ideal and considers these portraits to be the highest form of art possible, meaning that the entire planet counts.
  • Hank of Indefensible Positions named his horse Uni, but states that it's not short for Unicorn. "See, a unicorn is a horse with a magical horn. When I got to know this pony, I named her Unicu-" Fortunately, he's interrupted before he can finish, but he later makes a philosophical point by describing what it's like to have sex with a horse. Zoophilia is kind of his defining trait, in his second appearance he pretty much states as such.
  • The now-wife of webcomic artist David Hopkins, creator of Jack, was allegedly stalked and severely harassed by a creepy ex-boyfriend who had boasted repeatedly to her of his ... misadventures ... involving the blowholes of beached dolphins. They had such problems with him they took out their frustrations by putting a Captain Ersatz of him in the comic, condemned by Hell to be raped and otherwise assaulted by dolphins for eternity, and setting the language filter on the comic's forum to translate every instance of his first name to "Dolphinfucker".
  • In Keychain of Creation, building on the Exalted example above, Marena, an Anything That Moves fox-totem Lunar, is quizzed by renegade Deathknight Secret on how many people she's had sex with. Her response ends with the memorable line, "Define people."
  • This Oglaf strip has a man confess to lying about his wife being turned into a goat just so he could get away with fucking goats. (NOTE: This page is worksafe, the rest of the comic usually is not.)
    • "So, I will seduce... the crocodile!" The fist-bump of congratulations afterward sells it.
    • "Hot Dots" (not linked for NSFW) shows a sequence of polka-dotted fetish costumes and scenarios, concluding with a man shouting "And that's why I fucked the ocelot!"
  • The Order of the Stick:
    • Referenced when the Oracle predicts his next death at the hands of a druid client and asks his friends to be ready with a Resurrection spell "when I tell him yes, his wife is cheating on him, and the other man is his animal companion. Turns out giving enhanced intelligence to a critter who is literally hung like a bear doesn't always work out the way you'd think."
    • Elan needs an excuse to leave the room:
      Elan: Uh, dad? Haley and I need to go have sex.
      Haley: Come on, V. And bring the cat, just in case.
      Tarquin: ...Huh.
  • Tycho from Penny Arcade seems to have a... fondness for videos involving giraffes (and possibly ostriches as well).
    • It's the necks. They're slender.
    • Also this comic.
    • And then of course, there's... This...
      • That's not the only one, note that Max is the one who is the most visibly creeped out by Tycho.
    • Even Gabe gets in on this from time to time. As part of a new years resolution, he stated that he was giving up bizarre Internet porn because he didnt want to get caught tugging it at the Aquarium's jellyfish section anymore.
  • In Rooster Teeth Comics, swine flu apparently jumped the species barrier to humans because Jason had sex with a pig.
  • Scandinavia and the World:
    • When discussing past crimes countries have been accused of, it's discovered that Sweden was arrested for zoophilia. In his defense, he was young, horny and it was a really cute horse.
    • Wales is in a relationship with New Zealand...who is a sheep. Somehow, they even have a child together, New South Wales. Norway's brain broke when he realized that. (For the record, NSW is a talking lamb.)
    • In that same comic, Denmark expressed interest in banging a sheep too. In HIS defense, he was drunk, but still, it IS Denmark we're talking about here.
    • In another comic the Netherlands casually admitted that he and Denmark used to steal England's sheep and screw them when they got stoned, but since it's now illegal to screw them they just dress the sheep in bikinis and let them wander their gardens.
  • Joked about in an early Sinfest where Slick is answering sex-related letters from the readers. One letter, rife with spelling errors, asks if its normal that he gets a chubby watching his mother milk the farm cow. Slick tells him that he is what professionals call an "inbred freak", to make sure the cow is of legal age, and that "moo means moo".
  • And of course, Something*Positive had Monette and the koala... but in her defense, it wasn't so much bestialist tendencies as a combination of drunkenness and Really Getting Around.
    • And even now she is still trying to live it down; her girlfriend at one point mentions use of a koala mask during sex.
    • Not to mention that, when she starts gaining more fame as an actress, the studio made sure the Koala was kept out of the picture - by paying it off.
  • Stef from User Friendly supposedly has a thing for Llamas. In fact, the strip repeatedly makes jokes about Llama porn...

  • In Brad Jones' Demo Reel, Henrietta lists a number of animals she is willing to have sex with if she'll be paid in heroin.
  • When The Cinema Snob reviewed Island of Death, he understandably couldn't get past the fact that the male character did, in fact, screw a goat. And more often than not, Snob fears some bestiality will occur - or just finds some subtext for it (such as Oh Heavenly Dog, where a woman basically falls in love with a man trapped in the dog Benji's body).
  • At CollegeHumor the implication you contracted Chlamydia from a Koala can not be said uncontested. Kissing a frog is also gross.
  • Darwin Awards
    • A 2007 Award is entitled "A Cow-ardly Death", caused by "unwanted amorous advances on a heifer". Said heifer kicked her would-be suitor to death.
    • Another accgount recalls a rather inebriated half-naked man being treated for a crotch filled with porcupine quills. The patient was unable to state exactly what happened due to drunkenness and pain, but it is not hard to guess.
    • this one involves a guy reportedly attempting sex with a raccoon, which mangled the offending parts. It's probably an urban legend though.
  • Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog:
    • The Bad Reverend's audition for the Evil League of Evil had him asserting against rumors (and his own mutterings) that he would not molest Bad Horse.
    • And inverted when Bad Horse's letters include directions to "Make the Bad Horse gleeful/ Or he'll make you his mare!"
  • On the Dream SMP, according to Fundy, he's the son of Wilbur, a presumed human, and a salmon named Sally. How this is done is never explained canonically, and when the fandom suggests that Sally was a shapeshifter to make it sound more believable, Wilbur the content creator rejects the notion, confirming that yes, he (somehow) fucked a fish, and he has never been able to live it down in the fandom ever since.
    Fundy: Uh, basically [...] I wasn't alive during these times, but I think, um... Wilbur fucked a salmon.
    Jack: Wow, you really— that's disgusting!
    • Wilbur's relationship with Sally the Salmon clearly had an effect on his mind—even while he's dead, Ghostbur, his spectral counterpart, continues to show sexual attraction to salmon. Expectedly, this makes his family very uncomfortable.
  • Filthy Frank: Frank has mentioned how he rapes baby deer. It Makes Sense in Context, as Frank is a horrible person.
  • His "wife"? A horse. Naturally, Fandom Wank turned it into a Meme.
  • The Freelance Astronauts are Squicked out by the idea of marrying a fish.
  • When the Game Grumps play The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past:
    Egoraptor: What was the weirdest thing about Ocarina of Time?
    Jon Tron: You- [narrowly avoids running into a snake] FUCK SNAKES!!
    Egoraptor: I don't fuck snakes! That's disgusting!
    • Later on, during the Danny era of Game Grumps, Danny introduced the running gag of "Wolfjob": a poorely-rendered image of a bipedal wolf jerking a guy off. The image is of unknown origin, but Danny seems to find it disturbingly hilarious.
  • Notable Aversion: For all its other crimes and despite its name, "" does not concern this trope, or having anything even vaguely related to goats. This is because Goatse is an abbreviation, which stands for (warning, vulgar) Guy Opens Ass To Show Everyone.
  • Goodbye Strangers: A few of the entries in the Sweeter Smoke module imply that that the Kazma has had sex with some of the Strangers. And in the Sickos Only module, Default talks about the abuse inflicted on strangers by his partner Bracey and shows images of strangers in various forms of bondage and with various injuries. Although apparently people don't consider sex with strangers to be bestiality, as strangers are not really alive or sentient in the same way animals are.
  • Played to comedic effect in the DC Universe-based online role-plays of JLA_Watchtower and DC Nation. The characters are taking the 5,000-question online "purity test," and Gar Logan's girlfriend (an OC who is an animal-based shape-shifter like he is) quips, "Honey, just how DO we answer those bestiality questions?"
  • Played for horror in Hamster's Paradise where one faction of a race of sapient, warmongering hamster descendants known as the Harmsters attempt to play Evilutionary Biologist and attempt to interbreed with their domesticated beasts called Brutes to become a stronger species. Since the Brutes are also Harmsters that had been enslaved and selectively bred into non-sapient animals, they are able to viably reproduce: but the experiment worked a little too well and the entire faction degraded into the gigantic, primal, cannibalistic Frazettas.
  • In the YTP series The Misadventures of Skooks, everyone seems to show attraction to Skooks at one point or another. "Lucky for you, I'm a dog lover!"
  • In The Nostalgia Critic review of Signs, Doug dubs the voices of the aliens when he wonders what they could possibly be saying during their time of their attack. After one tries to break down a door and fails, after being insulted the alien calls the other alien a "slug fucker".
  • Skippy's List Of Things Not To Do In The US Army involves this at some level.
    "Um... a rubber sheep... I can explain why that's there..."
  • Parody artist Jon Cozart, a.k.a. Paint, mocks the Happily Ever After ending of Beauty and the Beast in his "After Ever After" video with the notion that after her marriage the townsfolk accuse Belle of bestiality and throw her in prison.
  • Amaranth in Tales of MU is bound by her nature to have sex with intelligent beings who want it. She sends her goddess burnt offerings of reports on animal cognition in the hopes of having the definition expanded.
  • Possibly deconstructed by the short web series, There she is!!; the manner of revulsion from the public caused by a relationship between a rabbit and a cat seems to be portrayed somewhere between Fantastic Racism and straight up bestiality. Especially deconstructed because the rationale behind such an extreme hatred is completely lost on the viewer. If one can read their site (They're Korean), this is intentional.
  • T Shirt Hell:
  • Victoria of The Twilight Chronicles is heavily hinted to have slept with Jacob's dog. It's more or less confirmed a few episodes later when Carlisle mentions that he left Mexico because Victoria wanted to bring dogs into their sex life.
  • Welshy, in order to prove he's British to Mike J, stated that the things he had screwed included a bagel, his sister, and a goat.
  • In an episode of What the Fuck Is Wrong with You?, Nash gets revolted at a guy who was caught screwing a dead squid, and in another he's shocked at an animal brothel. One episode featured a woman who [[Squick had sex with a dog]] then died when she had an allergic reaction to the dog's penis. Nash is rightfully disgusted.
    Nash: "Don't have sex with dogs or you'll fucking die apparently!"
  • With Special Guest Lauren Lapkus has the Wild Horses episode where no-one treats it as weird, to comedic effect.
  • There's a copypasta taken from a zoophilia website that goes into worrying detail about how the writer describes getting intimate with dolphins, as well as a Pokemon one that goes into similar detail concerning Vaporeon.

  • Quagmire, of Family Guy, has examples of this among his many, many other perversions.

    • Back when Peter first became a fisherman, him and the guys play a game of "I Never", in which you had to take a shot if you ever did anything that any of the others said they never did. Quagmire ends up getting wasted more and more with each shot. One of them involved giving a monkey a reach-around.
    • From the same episode, Peter develops a rivalry with a fellow fisherman. At one point, he switches out the sign at Peter's fish stall with one that says "I Had Sex With All These Fish", catching the interest of a passing man.
      Man: Wow. So how do you do it?
      Peter: Well, I throw the old worm out there, they usually go for that, and after struggling a bit they lie back and accept it.
      Man: [gives Peter a card with his phone number] We should get together later.
      Peter: Uh, okay?
    • Quagmire also apparently got it on with a turtle once, during a Cutaway Gag that has Quagmire sticking his head out of a turtle shell to see if there was something going on. The turtle asks if something's wrong, but Quagmire dismisses it and retreats back inside.

Then his desire for human women became Squick. Stewie has also made advances on Brian from time to time, but the show doesn't comment on this either.
