This is also surely how Netflix came to commission Sexy Beastswhich is your typical dating show, but with the added entertainment of identity-concealing sexy furries — the masked dater, if you will. When the trailer dropped on social media three weeks ago, users were quick to voice their opinions ranging from confusion to amusement. However, one maligned and misunderstood group came to mind almost instantly: furries. Furries are the animal-loving subculture where people dress up in fursuits for fun, friendship and, sometimes, sex. So, what do they think of the show? The community has often been framed as a kink by many outlets.
Sexy Beasts is a new dating show where real-life singles sport elaborate makeup and prosthetics to put true blind-date chemistry to the test. The show reminded me of a lot of the dynamics of furry friendships and relationships, [which] are made on personality as opposed to what the person looks like.
Szabla, an artist who makes content for the furry community, agrees. SemJay cites the enormous popularity of anthropomorphic costume-heavy shows like Masked Singer as an example. Despite the apparent influence of furry fandom culture on pop culture phenomena, however, furries are rarely consulted to provide input for such projects, even when they deal directly with furry-related topics, such as an infamous in the furry community, at least CSI episode dealing with the fandom.
