Review: Dearest Pet: On Beastiality

Dearest Pet: On Beastiality by Midas Dekkers

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



Not sure what to expect, I borrowed this book to learn more about bestiality. The first six chapters cover the history of man loving beasts. The Egyptians, Greeks, Indian to name a few exhibit animals in their arts mating with humans. This is nothing new to me. Classic stories of satyr romping with young women and Leda with her swan lover are examined.

After the classical examination, the book turns towards the raising of exotic animals by humans. Based on what I've read, I find animals imprinting on humans is a bad thing. Animals are incapable of adjusting to their natural habitat or integrate within their own species. A very sad example was a chimpanzee named Lucy who was raised by humans. She liked to sleep on mattresses and had her food prepared for her. Before she went to bed at night, she'd look through the magazine rack. They even taught her how to sign language for food, help, etc. Then her keepers decided to "naturalize" her back to the wild. She hated camping. When they released her to the wild, she kept signing for food, hunger and help. Even several years after her forced release into the wilds, when she came across human researchers she signed for "Help me get out." This actually breaks my heart a little. This animal is raised in a lap of luxury, it's all she knows. She has NO skill sets to survive in the wild and doesn't have a pleasant way to survive. It makes me very angry at humans who do this. I find this cruel and unacceptable treatment to animals. This is just vile.

The chapters go on to explain about animal behaviour and how primates have no sense of smell so it's easier to trick them into mating with a species that is outside of theirs. Same with birds raising other bird's eggs. Birds can't smell the difference so they can raise other bird species. For example, many zoos use chickens to brood and hatch the eggs of exotic birds. The book goes on to explain artificial insemination from hoofed animals down to bees. It's all a bit bizarre.

The chapters which are most disturbing to date is the one covering animal and human experimentation of organ transplants. The first is about a Dutchman, Herman Moens (p. 88-90) who with the support of Queen Wilhelmina to create half human half gorilla offspring. In the early 1900s Moens planned a experiment where he would take the "lower race of negroes" and mate them with gorillas. I have no words. His theory was that the women can easily be inseminated with gorillas so that they could produce half breed offspring for him study. Obviously, these hybrid or strange offspring would need teachers who are capable of working with mentally retarded children. This was his supposition. There are so many things wrong with this experiment I can't even begin to start without becoming irate.

At the midway part to this book, I've also learned of the French Doctor Serge Voronff who transplanted through grafts - monkey glands to aging men. Apparently this helped old men become young again and be randy with women. I guess in 1920s, this was the Viagra of their time. It finally came to an end when he tried to graft horse testicles to the shriveled up old human testes and it didn't work. Yet again, I have no words.

The book continues to discuss how animals have no rights and that this is a crime for some. So some countries gave animal rights which means they are responsible for their actions. Pigs, dogs, etc where put on trial, sentenced to death and hung. W.T.F. Sometimes it boggles my mind.

Talking about religion, we find out that sodomy refers to bestiality, homosexuality and anything unnatural because Sodom was the place where all unnatural sex took place. In more recent years, it's used only for anal sex. Another religious point was made that some of the Muslim countries condemn anyone having sex with a Jewish person because that is considered bestiality. Yet again I have no words.

The book ends with basic explanation with the increase in people owning pets and the blurring of lines, more and more people will be committing bestiality in forms that we find "acceptable". It would not be hard to foresee people who love their pets to "love them" more.

This book was a bit dry at times. The pictures of animals copulating with humans were interesting. This book is recommended for those who want to learn the history of bestiality and one man's theory of what will happen regarding the taboos of animal/human relations.
