Bestiality (bestiality, sodomy)
- obtaining sexual satisfaction in contact with animals. More common in men. Pets are used for these purposes (mares, cows, donkeys, goats, sheep). Women have sex with dogs. Bestiality can be observed as a transient phenomenon in some nations, when animals are used for sexual satisfaction during puberty of young men. This perversion may be a manifestation of mental illness (oligophrenia, schizophrenia).
