Weasels In Bondage

There are times when it seems that the utilisation of small furry mammals in an erotic or perverse context could be construed as going slightly beyond the bounds of what is acceptable. However, this only goes to show the inherent misunderstanding of the nature of the perverse by anyone who holds such a view.

Anyone who has spent any time with, say, a water vole, a badger, or even a dormouse, will be under no illusions about just how perverse these creatures can be in their natural habitat.

It was the great David Attenborough, in his 1990s landmark nature series Weasels In Bondage who first brought the perverse nature of Britain’s woodland creatures to the attention of the general public. Up until then it was always assumed that the occasional sight of a grey squirrel in fetish gear was a result of the growing encroachment of humanity into what were once those animal’s natural habitats that was the cause of such manifestations of the perverse in this country’s wild animals.

However, it was the episode of Weasels In Bondage that showed a vixen in peephole bra, stockings, suspenders and leather thigh boots dominating a tightly-bound male badger in a secluded dell, that first made people realise that the sexual antics of woodland creatures were not so unimaginatively straightforward as they had once so naively believed.

Attenborough, through some very skilful natural history filming was also able to demonstrate that Red Deer engage in wife-swapping parties deep in the more heavily-forested parts of the woodlands, whilst it is not unknown for groups of otters to engage in consensual water-sports fetish nights.

There is also some sketchy evidence, so far without any photographic proof, that there are a large number of transvestite barn owls in Hampshire, who regularly go out on night hunting expeditions in full evening dress. However, we will have to wait for firm evidence for the existence of such practices before adding them to the list.
