Herpy.nu will close down in January 2018 - will be replaced by something new and better.

Herpy has had a good 13 year run and will never be forgotten for those of us who experienced it. Sadly the site is today unappealing and is no longer fit for the audience of 2018, and years of smear campaigns have given us a reputation that has been hard to shake. We therefore made the choice to close the site and move on to a brighter future. While the forums will be archived as a memory of times of past greatness, new funds have been raised and new admins have been recruited to start working on a entire new community far away from Bad Dragon and any association with that company. The gallery will remain operational in the meantime. You can follow me on Twitter for further developments. We also have a Discord server which has become the heart of the community. If you wish to join it, send a PM to Valcyrie.

Herpy have always been my little lovechild since I joined over a decade ago. But he grew up, and as he has aged with dignity its time for his hatchling to take over. A fresh start for a new generation in a new era.

Kind regards,
Valcyrie

Are you attracted to dragons?

Post by Enthralled » February 10th, 2017, 1:27 am

And if so, were you drawn to Herpy because of that attraction?

It seems like everyone here, or at least everyone in this sub-forum doesn't just have a strong interest in dragons but is also sexually attracted to them as well.

(This post may seem obvious but I really want to see what everyone actually thinks instead of what we assume. I'm pretty sure there's at least one or two of us that aren't actually deeply attracted to dragons... Right?)

Hah so far all the results indicate everyone's very much sexually attracted to dragons, though I think there are a handful of members who aren't though.

For myself, I remember finding the old forums cause i was feeling anxious and I googled "why am I attracted to dragons" and herpy threads kept popping up in the results. Attraction definitely isn't the biggest part of my interest in dragons though.. I just really like stories with dragons and I love drawing them too. I think being attracted to them is just an extension of that.

Well crap. It looks like everyone here has a deep-seated weakness for dragons. I'll hold out more though to see if we can get just one person who isn't pulled in by them.

It might be difficult to find one...

Don't kill the edge and become like the rest.
Don't lose the faith that made you who you are
Don't kill the edge that manifests inside
This world is mine; it's where my thoughts collide...

Dragons are about third on my list... After dinosaurs (the fantasy reptile ones) and other reptiles. Dragons are just easier to modify when doing fantasy art because they have no set rules due to them not existing.

While this is a forum for all kinds of scalies, we cannot deny that many here would enjoy a dragon in their bed. Me being one of them, heh. I, like most of Herpy's members, follow the same initiation: came for the porn, stayed for the community.

Oh! There's someone who put "No." in the poll! We have exactly one person who isn't actually attracted to dragons at all. ^^ But who are they I wonder.

Very true. I wanted to see just how far gone though we are in our draconic infatuations. Apparently about at least 90%+ are. <3

I think the psychology to this is pretty interesting actually but not really surprising, I mean creative people, especially advertisers and video game makers, love using dragons for everything. Dragon fantasizers (And IMO dragon otherkin) are the result of all these outside influences.

I don't think so actually. I mean, we all saw a lot of Ronald McDonald but a lot of us don't have any interest in clowns. XP Sure, maybe a little bit of it was definitely encouraged from the outside world, but at the end of the day, we love these scaley things because that's who we are.

I used to love me some Pokemon way back in the day. I loved Pikachu and Charizard and etc. Cut to me 10 years later and I don't have any attraction whatsoever to Pikachu or cartoonish mouses or etc. But I am incredibly attracted to this:

XD

Sorry that was me. it was really stupid poll I couldn't resist picking it.

But! As I have a... few cracks in my mind... I have the ability to "inpresonate" the 'for' and 'against' sides of a topic at the same time.

SO! Lets start talking shit about dragons.
First off! Most dragons live in conditions where they can't (or just don't want to) brush their teeth. Result being their breath stinks of ash, sulfur and in some cases stink of rotten flesh.
SO! would you like to have your vagina licked or cock sucked (or both, if you're into that) by a creature that had probably some time before spat fire at things or chomped down some raw animals?

And on the topic of fire. It wouldn't be nice to get your things burnt up when you get into an argument cause the clumsy idiot's tail whacked over your favorite coffee cup.
"but the drugun I have bone for spits ice and not fire" Again. I don't like the idea of having to thaw and dry my stuff off every now and then.

also the frickining pricks are most of the time prideful and selfish peices of shit. stealing and hoarding treasures... burning down villages... attacking each other over territories and over mating rights.

Now you might just take this as me being a lil too attach to human comphorts but I don't like the idea of sleeping in a cave on a hard floor or atop a stack of gold. I quite like my comfy soft bed. And I don't want a dragon to come sleep with me in my bed cause it would fucking break.
"But lets say we had a bed that was strong enough or a small, light dragon" Well hope you liked ripped bedsheets cause at some point a paw will slip, a claw will snag, and things are going to be ripped.

ON THE TOPIC OF RIPPED!
Don't get to comfortable with your fantasies about getting fingered or rubbed by a dragon.
NUFF SAID

And on to horns, spikes and all those other sharp edges some dragons have over their bodies. Unless you're a masochist, You're not going to have a nice time getting bonked, slammed or slashed by your dragon, even if its just by accident.

Now... anything else?
Hmmm... can't think of any more things. I'll come back f I think of more.
Though feel free to add or reply to any of this.

In short: dragons are smelly and ruin things round them.

That's an interesting perspective Ebbon. Although I can see a couple of loop holes there. You're assuming dragons eat raw meat I would imagine that most would either turn it into ash or some lower level of just right to kill off any bacteria. Dragons spend a lot of time around gold (Even eat it in some mythologies) which is toxic to bacteria same for silver.

Them being selfish is a given... The classic Dragonality type is based on the worst traits of the old world human beings. I've said this before I'm not going to bore you with it.

As for damaging stuff a small dragon might be more manageable you probably would get disemboweled from a scratch and most the bed sheets are pretty durable nowadays what with dogs and other pets climbing on the beds.
You do seem to see them as very clumsy and unintelligent ... so you're basing them on humans then? XD

I'm not saying it's that simple, but saying that there are people who have a thing for clowns and pokemon

Quite so, but I'm still interested, having buried my passions for scalie things, for so many years, how others have come to terms with not wanting the norm.
