Swedes have more and more animal sex
Nettavisen ^ | January 26, 2004 | Řyvind Ludt and Carin Pettersson

Posted on 01/29/2004 2:18:40 PM PST by kennedy

Animal sex is not illegal in Sweden, and every year between 200 and 300 pets are injured because of sexual assaults.

The estimate was presented by Svenska Veterinärforbundet, the Swedish veterinary organization, and it is now trying to make the authorities and the public more aware of animals’ suffering. The organization claim the problem has increased during the last couple of years, even if most people are unaware of it.

“We have seen an increase since 1999 when child pornography became illegal,” said Johan Beck-Friis. “It appears, in other words, as there are some people who have replaced children with animals. In both circumstances, it is sex with defenceless individuals.”

The injuries inflicted on animals after sexual assaults are of the same character of those children get. Beck-Friis said that the most common injuries are wounds on the sex organs and blisters.

Animal porn

The fact that animal sex is becoming an increasing problem can be indicated by the mere fact that there is an increasing selection of animal porn at video rentals and there an increasingly number of websites with animal pornography is surfacing.

No one knows for sure how many animals that are abused, but a British study from 2001 indicates that every 20th dog or cat that receives treatment at veterinaries, the injuries are not a result of a direct accident, but the animal has been inflicted the injury as a result of a sexual assault.

According to the Swedish paper Expressen, if the same estimate can be used in Sweden that will indicate that 200 to 300 dogs and cats every year are injured as a result of sexual assaults.

Not illegal

In contrast with most other countries, animal sex is not illegal in Sweden. It was decriminalized in 1944 in connection with the decriminalization of homosexual sex.

You can love your pets, just don't...love you pets.

This is absolutely disgusting. Europe keeps swirling farther and farther down the toilet.

No suprise coming from Sweden. Those people will do anything to get sexual gratification.

The only other people, IMO, who's more perverted is the Japanese...

It was possession of child pornography that became illegal.

As for the article it is a bit confusing; The law against "tidelag" (animal sex) was removed and charges are instead filed under animal abuse.

Everyone should be free to choose their own partner, irrespective of species, marry them in a church and adopt children. We need an 'Inter-species Sex Pride' movement to highlight these important issues. You conservatives are just holding back progress.

Ah! That charges would be filled for animal abuse makes perfect sense, but I'm still surprised that possession of child pornography didn't become illegal until 1999.

Before 1999 it was i belive only illegal to produce and distribute or sell child pornography. Making actual possession illegal was considered to be problematic in principle. I think it is still the only law banning possession of information here.

Many people protested the ban for that very reason.

,,, did I ever tell you that I went to Sweden for lunch once? I was in Copenhagen for a few days and had an early evening flight out to Zurich. I caught a hydrofoil across to Malmo to fill in some time. The place was incredibly expensive - I was there for most of an afternoon and that was that.

Porn stores in Copenhagen were like small supermarkets. I couldn't believe the sort of stuff they had that showed people with animals. "Sick" would be a justifiable word.

Copenhagen is in Denmark, as were those porn stores you were talking about. Did you mean Stockholm, perhaps?

,,, I had a few days in Copenhagen. On the last day I took a quick trip over to Malmo (Sweden) and went back to Denmark - it's about a 40 min ride each way. The porn stores I was mentioning were in Copenhagen. I didn't see any during the few hours I was in Sweden - wasn't looking either.

Maybe PETA's true agenda is to save animals from death so that PETA members can have a larger pool of sex mates. I mean, seriously, I might go pretty balistic myself if there was an effort to kill and eat the Swedish Bikini Team.
