Definition - What does Animalism mean?

Animalism pertains to the belief that humans are, foremost, animals. A person's predisposition, goals, and instincts can be likened to those of the other members of the animal kingdom. Acts, such as sex, are also viewed from the perspectives of animals. Thus, there is less “refinement;” and instincts are expected take over during sex.

Kinkly explains Animalism

Sex with a person who believes in animalism can be very exciting. It is often described as “animalistic.” Passion and instinct take over, and things can get very intense. It then becomes important to lay down one's cards on the table first. Not everyone expects or enjoys animalistic sex. For the act to be truly enjoyed by all parties involved, talk and agree on needs, wants, and limits.
