    Default Animals, Sex, and Morals

    I was recently wondering, is the act of bestiality morally justified if the animal that engages in intercourse with the human is willing to do so?

    I mean, there are other species of animals that do participate in recreational intercourse with each other, so theoretically speaking if a bonobo chimpanzee and a human being wanted to engage in intercourse with each other, would this be moral? If the animal possess free will then is the act justifiable at all?

    I believe you can draw a parallel between animals and children. So, would you have sex with a 13-year old if she wanted it? Would it be morally justifiable?

    How on earth would you know the animal is willing?
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    As long a no suffering is being produced, sure. If happiness is produced, even better.

    Generally, most of society hates and are disgusted by bestiality. So they suffer in negative emotions, and are likely very willing to inflict great suffering on anyone who practises it.

    Even if that were a successful parallel, it is very institutionalised to torture and kill animals. It is not so with children. There are animal cruelty laws in some places, but imprisoning, hitting, assaulting and killing them without consent are legal and common place (billions of animals). Raping them does not seem far removed from that.

    Aside from the obvious ways to know if an animal is willing to do anything (e.g. nagging for a walk or food), there are quite a few species who actively try to engage in sex with humans.

    Yuk. I don't feel like thinking about this. It might be worth mentioning, though, that there are disease related reasons not to do this. Like avoiding aiding and encouraging cross species diseases. This should bear some moral weight.

    Irrelevant. We have just as much of an obligation to fight against intraspecies disease transmission (and we do), yet for interspecies disease transmission we could just as easily find ways to decrease the risks to an acceptable level.

    Erm, what about consent here?
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    Both dogs and dolphins can (and do) mount humans, so if the human consents, would that not meet the criteria?
