Contemplating sexual perversion is very much like traveling through foreign and exotic lands. It gives you a sharp sense of the relativity of your own desires, your own “normality,” and teaches you to understand the behavior of others within its proper context. Morally, that can have the effect of diluting your reaction to certain acts. (”That farmer fucked a sheep? Oh, well, that’s what happens when a man surrounds himself with animals…”) Metaphysically, it can also have the effect of making you suspend your own judgements about what is or isn’t possible in the realm of sexual behavior. For example, if you see a bit of roadkill on the side of the road, you might think it’s “impossible” that anyone would find it sexually stimulating — and yet there was this guy. When you have your notions of possibility turned around a few times like that, it’s hard not to acquire a scepticism toward your own beliefs. If a man can fuck a dead dog, who knows what the outer limits of depravity might not be?

You have to keep that in mind as you consider the story of the Russian tourists who were apparently determined to subvert the law prohibiting sex with porcupines. When a “normal” person hears this, they probably think, “Why, that’s ridiculous! Nobody fucks a porcupine!” But when a jaded pervert hears this, he is not so quick to dismiss it. “Sex with a porcupine? Well, why not? Some people like animals, and some people like to be stabbed — why not combine the two?”

Yes, it's true. Two Russian tourists who challenged a Florida law prohibiting sexual relationship with a porcupine have had to undergo a lengthy treatment for genital inflammation. Read the rest of the article here:
