This ABC News story about vegans fucking—or not fucking—meat eaters...
A recent study conducted in New Zealand found that vegans—notoriously finicky eaters who don't eat meat or animal byproducts, like eggs and dairy—don't like the idea of swapping spit (or anything else) with those who have been dining on flesh. Annie Potts, a researcher at the University of Canterbury's Centre for Human-Animal Studies, noted that vegans, particularly women, found sex with meat eaters disgusting.
Vegans, she told ABC News.com from New Zealand, don't like sex with carnivores, for personal reasons: "They're attracted to people with similar interests;" ideological reasons: "they see meat eaters' bodies as being composed of the lives of others;" and sexual reasons: "they didn't want to engage in intimate sex ... because of the smells and tastes of their body fluids."
...is relevant to the most recent installment of the "Savage Lovecast." And getting back to the ABC News story: surprisingly enough PETA thinks vegans should fuck meat eaters:
While PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, has long advocated people give up meat and go vegetarian, the animal rights group has its misgivings about vegans only sleeping with other vegans. "Sex is a very effective form of outreach and activism," said Dan Shannon, a PETA spokesman, and 10-year veteran vegan, who thought meat eaters could be converted by their partners.
