Guest Posted February 24, 2006 Share Posted February 24, 2006 Good morning, everybody! I lurked over at Melody for a while, but decided to introduce myself over here at the new site. The place looks great, by the way--many thanks to all who make this possible. I'm in my 30s, male, married. I have had a thing for fur since I was very young. Back in '94, when I was in college and started using the Internet, I just did a few random pictures for "fur." I was shocked to see an AOL site by a user called "Eflnum1" which had wonderful pictures of beautiful women in fur. I also remember a page called "The fur coat club" which had about 30 or so ladies posing in their furs in a group picture. I kept searching, and heard a word I had never heard before: "fetish." I read about it in a friend's Abnormal Psychology textbook and read about how people can have a fetish for fur, leather, or even chrome exhaust pipes!! (Wow, the human mind is an amazing thing!) Seeing the old NTCWEB and MikhailK's sites, I began to understand that there were a lot of people JUST LIKE ME! It was really an eye-opening experience. Every girl I would date I would try to broach the subject of fur. Most of the time it was just brushed off...I mean, why would an ordinary guy take any interest in what kind of coat a girl would wear? As time went on, I got a bit more bold with telling girls how much I liked fur, but never made a big deal about it. Well, that was all well and good until I met the most amazing woman...and she was anti-fur. I knew I loved the woman more than fur, so it wasn't a difficult decision to make. But she started wearing faux for me, then vintage, then conservative fur trim, and now has a closet full of fox, mink, raccoon, beaver, and sheepskin coats! Some are for play, some are for everyday, and some are only for special occasions. I think a tough thing for the ordinary woman is that they don't want to be defined by a coat...but since fur is so controversial to a few vocal jerks, that is how they often feel. Somehow, I would love to find a way to make fur as common as a wool coat or a leather coat...that a woman would think, "what would go with this outfit?" or "what will keep me comfortable today?" instead of feeling like people would judge her just because of her freakin' coat. (By the way, whenever we go out in her furs, she's only ever received compliments). One by one, women can warm up (pun not intended) to the idea that, "hey, she's just like me, she wears fur, so can I!!!" Sorry for the long post...but it's nice to have a place to post it!
