A Princeton professor and animal rights activist called sexual intercourse with animals “thought-provoking” in a tweet on Wednesday.
Peter Singer is a professor of bioethics at the University Center for Human Values and has written multiple books including “Why Vegan? Eating Ethically” and “Animal Liberation Now.” Singer tweeted a journal article titled “Zoophilia Is Morally Permissible,” which he called “thought-provoking” and said “challenges one of society’s strongest taboos.”
“This piece challenges one of society’s strongest taboos and argues for the moral permissibility of some forms of sexual contact between humans and animals. This article offers a controversial perspective that calls for a serious and open discussion on animal ethics and sex ethics,” Singer tweeted.
The journal lays out a moral argument for sexual intercourse with animals, arguing that it is “morally permissible” and that there is “nothing wrong” with sex with animals. The journal was written under the pseudonym Fira Bensto in the “Journal of Controversial Ideas” and published in October.
Another thought-provoking article is “Zoophilia Is Morally Permissible” by Fira Bensto (pseudonym), which is just out in the current issue of @JConIdeas.

“As one of our most deeply entrenched social taboos, zoophilia is widely considered to be wrong, and having sex with animals is illegal in many countries,” the article reads. “In this article, I would like to go against this de facto consensus and argue that zoophilia is morally permissible.”
“Sex with animals is a powerful social taboo that exposes its practitioners to utmost indignation and stigma,” the article continues. “Zoophilia is one of the few sexual orientations (along with e.g. necrophilia or pedophilia) that remain offlimits and have been left aside from the sexual liberation movement in the past fifty years. I would like to argue that this is a mistake. There is in fact nothing wrong with having sex with animals: it is not an inherently problematic sexual practice.”
“The year of the first Earth Day, 1970, was the year I stopped eating meat. I didn’t do it to save the Earth, but because I realized that there is no ethical justification for treating animals like machines for converting feed into meat, milk and eggs,” he wrote in the Times.
Singer did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
