When I started posting on Inkbunny, I honestly didn't expect to get such a warm welcome from everyone. I've gotten far more watchers and page views than I expected and so many wonderful comments. I love hearing from you guys about how much you dig the depraved stuff I draw and I encourage you to let me know <3 I'm still stunned occasionally when someone tells me that I'm their favorite artist and I don't know that I quiet believe them.
A while ago I started noticing a trend in the comments I've been getting that makes me giggle the most, and in a weird way, I'm most proud of. Whether through comments or PMs or conversations offsite, I constantly encounter people that harbor some form of guilt in their liking of my smut. They tell me they're not into cub porn whatsoever but they get incredibly turned on by the stuff I draw. Even friends of mine, who I've tried to hide my art from but have eventually found out, have told me that they unexpectedly adore my smut.
My first reaction is flattery, of course. I'm actually converting people to cub porn! (you're welcome, InkBunny) And then I start to consider the irony of it. I mean, the scenarios I depict tend to involve Sasha and a partner that is shy and hesitant before losing themselves in their lust (and Sasha's persistence) and finally finding themselves overwhelmed with guilt over the whole fiasco. A good chunk of my watchers resemble the personalities of the subjects I draw. I pondered why exactly I'm attracting this particular crowd that aren't even into the very subject that I draw exclusively. It's bizarre! Though I think I've concluded the answer to this mystery, and I believe that I draw, what I now like to refer to as, 'entry level cub porn.'
See, the way I depict Sasha is the most absolute ideal in relation to someone on the fence about sexually pursuing someone underage (in fantasy). He's 100% consenting (to the point where he downright demands it), he as smart as any average adult (so none of that "why's it all hard, mister" crap) and his physiology actually is more like an adult's than a child's (no research or reference was used to depict an accurate child's body. He's just an adult body with a bigger head). Sasha is smart, knows exactly what he wants, and best of all, is going to get it and you can't stop him. When people are to put themselves in the fantasy, it's Sasha being the instigator and the fantasizer being virtually outside of control. All question of consent is thrown out the window when he's the one that pursues you. All these factors work to alleviate the guilt that comes with the idea and allows the fantasy to infiltrate their mind. My smut plants that concept in their minds where they don't have to do the heavy lifting of their morality; they let Sasha come in, stomp on it, and take advantage.
So if you feel guilty, don't worry. It's all fantasy, and it's all unintentionally designed to get your rocks off, anyway. Like I said, this is entry level cub porn. Before long, you'll start doing searches on e621 for "cub rape snuff." It's a slippery slope! :3
