Fishy Business…

merman – – Many of us yearn for a furry transformation, but there are those who wish for a more uncommon conversion.  Among these rare and exotic types are those who are into mermaids, or their male counterparts, mermen.  Both according to legend are alluring and seductive sea creatures who possess the upper body of a human and the lower body of a fish.  They tend to make themselves visible to ships during storms, using their siren-like singing to lure the opposite sex into the water.

Now interest in mermaids and mermen was spurred by Disney’s The Little Mermaid, and interest can translate into obsession.  Some people enjoy the fantasy to the extent that they relish role-playing it by means of acquiring mermaid fins.  Mermaid swimsuits are available, and may be visible as a beach fad this summer.  The fantasy doesn’t come cheap, however, with  mermaid tail suits starting at about $169, and deluxe silicon versions running close  to $3,000.  There are mermaid/mermen lifestylers who are into their interest as much as those who don fursuits and attend conventions. 

Strange?- -It’s all relative, and almost everyone is someone else’s idea of a freak…or so I think, very much at home in my fox mask.  Thus endeth our tail for today…Ahahahaha!

    Hannibal Lecter would probably love turning one of _them_ into a box of Mc-Bites.

    Oh my! This is kind of hard to believe – a tail and no legs seems like a bad trade – to each his own but . . .

      Even “Aquaman” has legs as did Patrick Duffy as the “Man from Atlantis,” and I’m likewise very attached to mine. I’m just not cut out to be a merman. Besides, my fur smells funny when I get wet!
