E621 is a Danbooru-type image board that’s home to furries, fans of anthropomorphic art styles, cosplay and more. As an adult 18+ image board, users must also be aware that some content is NSFW. This makes it an ideal place for like-minded people to meet, share experiences and engage in various forms of creative expression related to their fursonas.
Furries are often thought of as people who dress up as animals or cartoon characters and engage in sexual activities or relationships with them, but this could not be further from the truth. The furry fandom extends beyond just the physical act of dressing up as a fantasy creature — it’s about exploring ideas and expressing oneself through their art, stories and costumes.
The term ‘furry’ itself references both artistic anthromorphic works such as cartoons, comics and illustrations featuring anthropomorphic animals, as well as people who adopt furry characters as part of role play or engaging in sexual activities. It also brings together those with an affinity for anthropomorphic art styles regardless of their inclination toward romantic or sexual behaviour — which can encompass anything between erotic fiction writing to simply enjoying seeing others dress up in costume at conventions.
On E621, visitors can find a large variety of both artistic and photographic material related to the fandom—from original artwork featuring characters they have created themselves (or commissioned from someone) to detailed animations that bring fursonas to life onscreen. There’s also plenty of fetish photography depicting adults engaging in consensual fantasies either alone/with props or with other adults in costume/cosplay who share themed interests within the sexuality spectrum (e.g., anything from yiffing/plushophilia to BDSM role play). Moderators work hard behind the scenes effort to ensure content remains within these guidelines for safety and legal reasons too.
So if you are looking for a safe space to explore your own interests around anthropomorphic art styles without judgement then E621 is definitely worth checking out! Just keep in mind though that its materials most intended for viewing by adults only 18+ due to firstly fetish-related content being featured throughout the site plus secondly potential nudity which may occasionally appear alongside images deemed suitable by moderators depending on what is submitted by users participating on E621 each day etc…
