E621 is an image board created for individuals who are interested in anthropomorphic furry images. It features photos, drawings, and animated GIFs of various animals and creatures in a variety of amusing poses and sometimes having sex. The site was created to provide a place for furries to find and share their fantasies with like-minded people, without judgement or ridicule.
Furries are fans of anthropomorphized animals who often dress up as such characters at conventions or parties. They may also dress up as their favorite creatures from fictional works, such as Disney movies or comic books. Furries play a mix of traditional fantasy role-playing games or modern video games using their costumed personas to explore different stories and universes with other players. Some furries also elect to take part in romantic relationships between two or more individuals dressed up in a furry costume – referred to as ‘gaspxing’.
E621 provides an online platform for those looking to discuss topics related to their passions with others that share them. Members use the site for making new friends, role-playing plots and trading merchandise. Topics include creating art commissions, writing stories, talking about upcoming conventions as well as the sexual side of furry fandom. Those sharing sexually explicit content must label it appropriately; failure to do so can result in removal of images from the site’s database. For this reason, E621 has become popular due to its strict guidelines on acceptable content which keeps out potential predators from taking advantage of its members.
E621 takes pride in giving furries a safe environment where they can express themselves freely without fear of being judged by mainstream society. With over 7 million uploads already seen by millions of visitors since its creation, many consider it one of the best websites on the Internet dedicated specifically to the animal sexuality subculture discussion and artwork sharing community.
