Legally Ranting

The Ins and Outs of Bestiality

Posted in Bestiality, Crime, Rape by legalrants on April 13, 2010

A man in the United Kingdom has pleaded guilty to 4 separate offences of sexual penetrating a horse and a donkey between 1999 to 2004.  According to his lawyer, he “does not have a stable address although he says his daughter can provide an address” (I’m really not sure if the pun was intended by him though). Read more here.

I must admit, I’ve always had sort of a curious interest with regards to the subject of bestiality. No, don’t get me wrong, I possess no desire to have nor maintain ANY sort of carnal knowledge with animals of any sort whatsoever. Rest assured that I am a normal heterosexual man (as my wife can surely attest). Nevertheless, it eludes me  why anybody would want to stick his ‘thing’ into an animal orifice; or for that matter, allow any animal to stick its ‘thing’ into his/her orifice. Surely, the mere thought of it would disgust anybody.

Or so I thought…. According to Wiki, zoophilia or bestiality (the difference, if any, is arguable) has become more prominent over the last 2 decades: “The internet and its predecessors made people able to search for topics and information in areas which were not otherwise easily accessible, and to talk with relative safety and anonymity. Because of the diary-like intimacy of blogs and the anonymity, zoophiles had the ideal opportunity in which to come out and express their sexuality” —- the internet, has of course, provided a platform for the promotion of other kinds of alternative sub-culture, not all easily approved by the conventional society, but I digress.

The convenience of the internet allowed me to perform a quick google search on “bestiality”. Gosh, was I amazed at the amount of “shit”  that came out of “bestiality” (pardon the pun!). There was “”, a site dedicated to “amateur and professionally bestiality and animal sex movies”; “” which I inferred to be a youtube-equivalent for animal porn…. and loads others.

You can check out the same Wiki link for general laws of various countries with regards to bestiality. But I cannot resist sharing a case that happened in Queensland, Australia, in 1956 — R v Edwards (1956) QWN 16.

Edwards was charged with an “attempt to have carnal knowledge of a hay mare“. He was caught with his pants down (literally), with his penis erect in the vicinity of the mare’s genital organ (no doubt the ASS-hole). Unfortunately, the trial judge could not convince himself that Edwards’ actions were such that he was ABOUT TO penetrate the mare, so as to constitute the ‘attempt’. Now, I really don’t know what was going through the judge’s mind when he was reviewing the evidence. Seriously, in a situation like this, it is quite obvious what the accused intended to do… if not, what else would constitute ‘attempted rape’? Actual penetration??? Then, that would be rape itself (of course, assuming the donkey did not consent)!!

 Fortunately, sanity prevailed in later cases which firmly rejected R v Edwards as a precedent.

All I can say is heee-hawwwww!
