The Mystery of The Octopus Sex is Solved!

One interesting perk of writing a blog is that I get to see what leads people to my articles. For three years now, I’ve continued to be mystified by a recurring pattern of searches that bring people to me: “Octopus sex with humans”. They find my site based on one blog article I wrote a couple of years ago:

The Human Octopus

I’ve always been bewildered by the frequency with which this particular search pops up. I could, theoretically, understand curiosity from a couple of people. Okay…I’m lying. I can’t even begin to fathom how someone conceives the idea. At what point does someone go: “Hey…wouldn’t it be cool to have sex with an octopus?” Still, it kept happening and I was still mystified. Today I happened to mention it to a coworker, who responded casually with “Oh yeah, that’s all the rage in Japan. There’s a whole cult following for it.”

Uh…really???

So of course, I have to google it. I mean…octopus sex? Who knew? Sure enough, there is an entire underground of weird kink that originated in Japan, devoted to “tentacle erotica”.

There are numerous anime films featuring tentacle penetration, often non-consensually,. There are comics devoted to the subject, with rape by tentacle being the main theme. Of course, America jumped on the bandwagon and upped the ante with live action B-films portraying tentacle sex. Los Angeles Artist Zak Smith even has an entire  series on octopus sex.

Okay, people…what the hell?

I have my kink. I have no problem with other people having theirs. This, however, is completely beyond my comprehension. Still…at least the mystery is solved!
