Short for "voraphilia" or "vorarephilia": a fetish in which one fantasizes about being eaten alive or eating another creature alive (sometimes known as phagophilia). The most common type of vore is "soft vore", being swallowed or swallowing whole with no bloodshed. There is also the less common "hard vore" which involves the tearing and chewing of flesh. Other types of vore include macrophilia and microphilia, in which one character involved in the vore is larger or smaller than normal.

Many might associate vore with cannibalism; however, most voraphiles do not favor cannibalism. Vore is an imaginary fetish; that is, it is impossible to perform in real life in the way most fantasize, unlike most cannibalism.

Also included with vore is sometimes the "furry" community: people who are interested in usually anthromorphic animals (humanized creatures). With animals as characters in vore fantasies, predation is natural and therefore somewhat more realistic.

1. vore (n) pl. vore: The original definition of this term was a nickname for vorarephilia (hint: often misspelled vorephilia or voreaphilia), derived from Latin "vorare," meaning "to devour" or "to swallow," and from Ancient Greek "philia," meaning "love" or "friend." The actual word "vorarephilia" itself refers to a paraphilia closely related to endosomatophilia, a paraphilia in which one derives sexual pleasure from being consumed or covered by anything, but vorarephilia is different in that the particular person deriving the sexual pleasure may be either an observer, a victim, or a predator, not just a victim, and in that the act must be or is preferably between two creatures who are at least remotely alive. It is sometimes (but not necessarily) consensual. There are various subsets, but the most common form is referred to as "soft vore," in which one of the two participants is swallowed whole and alive by the other. This fantasy may but does not always include digestion. The current definition of the term "vore" is usually used to refer to this paraphilia, but is sometimes used to describe any small online community of individuals who depict the content of this paraphilia with some other emotion behind the work besides sexual motivation, i.e. humor or depression. Though uncommon, such individuals and their communities undeniably exist (unless you don't believe in existence itself, or you think that everyone in the world is tricking you and is really out to get you, or anything like that).

2. vore (n) pl. vores: Any individual or group of individuals who are driven to any extent by the concept stated above.

3. vore (v) (past tense is -ed form, such as "walked" or "lumped"): To participate as the predator in the activity stated in definition 1. Not usually used with anything real as the subject or any of the objects (in a real situation, and often even in an imaginary situation, the verb "eat" is the more obvious choice).
Definition 1 example: "Warning: this picture contains vore."
Definition 2 example: "All vores are idiots." <-- Not my personal opinion, mind you
Definition 3 example: "Oh my GOD, you vored Kenny! YOU BASTARD. *kicks stomach*"

Vore is a sexual fetish that is not widely known about as of the date this definition was wrote, that revolves around the general concept of taking pleasure from being eaten, or eating. Which can include animals, food, or any other sort of eating or being eaten. but for the most part vore would be used to describe the fetish of the person eating another person or the person being eaten and enjoying it. There are two kinds of Vore.

Soft Vore: Soft vore defines all kinds of vore that do not involve killing gore digestion etcetera. usually swallowing the victim alive whereby the predator holds them ''prisoner'' for lack of a better word. actually doing this kind of soft vore is, as you could have easily reasoned impossible in real life and often is released online in the form of roleplaying, and sometimes other fashions

Hard vore: Basically cannibalism. hard vore is like soft vore, except it can and often will involve digestion, death, and very realistic features. any more information unfortunately cant come from me because ive never looked into hard vore more then what it is about. Hard vore is theoretically possible incase it lacks certain things that would happen in real life, such the victim being swallowed whole, but technicly it is possible in the form of cannibalism.

There are also mixtures in between, sometimes vore is mixed in with sex but because of lack of understanding ill leave the reader to come up with what that could be, which is hard to understand incase you are one of the people. Some people litterally find vore pleasing, but have no interest in sex like i am living proof of. Preferences in vore vary GREATLY and it cannot be narrowed down into a simpler subject without encountering errors.

Vore often involves alot of imagination. including very commonly the body having elastic like stretchability as to contain the victim without harming him or her.

Vore is not related to in any way the unbirth fetish, or rebirth although it could be half-wittedly argued, but such an argument would be like watching star wars and then saying, "Hey wasnt mofasa good in that movie?" and then when your friends point out that mofasa was never in the movie you say "Well he could have been." its possible, but its not only improbable but ridiculous to argue since there is not a single stable fact supporting it.

Usually vore is a noun, but it can be used as a slang verb or adjetive or whatever just like most nouns
However sometimes people who like vore also like unbirth or rebith, it is simply a coincidence sort of like wether they like vore and sex or only one. although there is the possibility though its hard or me to understand, that a sexual point of view might be the cause of people liking both.
Hey, have you ever been to eka's portal? its a community site all about vore of all kinds.

Hey would you like to roleplay some vore? ill be the prey.

Fetish. Short for voraphilia which means to derive sexual arousal from performing, viewing, or receiving the mastication of and by an animate being/person; cannibalism. It is exclusively - with the exception of some underground communities - seen only in art and story form, where more difficult and impossible situations can be portrayed and shared safely within the Vore fetish community

Soft core Vore - involves swallowing a being whole, or just placing said being in the mouth. Involves no blood shed. The victim is often portrayed as a willing participant, though not always.
Hard core Vore - blood, bones, body parts, chewing, cooking, resistance
Size Vore - Where victim, viewer or eater are abnormally tiny or gigantic

Other forms of vore include...

Penis Vore - an entire being is placed or seen within the shaft, foreskin, or urethral opening of the penis.
Vaginal Vore - an entire being is placed or seen within the vulva or the vagina.
Anal Vore - an entire being is placed or seen within the rectum or bowels.
Pregnancy Vore - an entire being seen inside the belly of another being with distension as to appear that the latter is pregnant with the former by way of Soft core Vore, Anal Vore, Vaginal Vore or Penis Vore.

Appropriate reference is made to the Furry (humanized animal) fetish since the act of eating other animals is one part of the Furry allure. Most vore fetishists are into Furry; however, not all Furries are into vore.
