Outlaw Dog Brothels and Animal Prostitution


Target: Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Prime Minister of Denmark

Goal: Ban dog brothels and treat bestiality as animal abuse

While the ethics of human prostitution are hotly debated, certain countries like Denmark have pushed the boundaries of sexual depravity by legalizing dog brothels. The brothels cater to patrons with the only legal stipulation being that dogs “not suffer.” Operating under such ambiguous constraints, these places have become havens for the sanctioned abuse of helpless animals.

Since canine genitalia are not physically tailored to human genitalia, sexual intercourse can be extremely harmful. For dogs, sex with human males often involves forced entry which can cause internal bleeding and other potentially fatal injuries. Psychological harm from such a stressful event is not taken into account, so how does one determine if a dog has “suffered?” The section chief for animal welfare for the Norwegian Food Safety Authority details the inherent abuse in bestiality. According to Torunn Knaevelsrud, “…it is in the nature of the case that animals will often be victims of injury, stress or suffering in connection with sexual acts with humans. Either that they are held fast, or frightened, or suffer physical pain or injury.” Because Denmark law is so ill-defined when it comes to bestiality, people typically escape punishment despite raping innocent dogs.

Prostitution, human or otherwise, is an industry that commonly involves exploitation and illegal trafficking. The only difference between the two is that human victims have a voice, and while even they can struggle to be acknowledged by society these dogs cannot cry out to anyone. They cannot consent to sexual activity, file a complaint or report abuse. They cannot raise awareness about their current situation; they must depend on us to end this cycle of legalized suffering.

Demand the humane treatment of dogs in Denmark. Tell the Prime Minister that dogs are incapable of consenting to sexual acts with humans, and that forcing animals into sex should be treated as a crime.


Dear Prime Minister Thorning-Schmidt,

Dog brothels in Denmark are becoming havens for animal rape and abuse. Although your laws stipulate that animals involved in these acts should “not suffer,” no clear boundaries or regulations have been established. In addition, no specific punishments exist for violating this condition. As a result dogs are left to sustain both physical and mental trauma from these depraved acts of sexual exploitation, and nobody is charged with animal cruelty.

Human reproductive organs are very different than dogs’, making sexual intercourse an extremely dangerous encounter for both species. For dogs, sex with human males typically involves forced entry which can lead to serious health complications such as internal bleeding. Aside from physical harm, dogs also suffer severe mental distress. Being forced into intercourse is disorienting, frightening and stressful for unsuspecting canines. These animals are being manhandled into submission and subjected to unwarranted physical attacks.

Bestiality is inherently non-consensual. Dogs are incapable of making fully informed decisions regarding sexual activity with humans. They also cannot voice opposition to such treatment. For these reasons I urge you and other Denmark officials to ban dog brothels and outlaw bestiality. Forcing an animal to participate in undesired sexual acts is still rape, and most inter-species relations entail some form of injury. Please, protect the welfare of these dogs and punish those who would exploit them for sexual pleasure.

  1. Absolutely disgusting. And I thought that bullfighting was sick.
    The horrible acts that humans get away with – all over the world – is just plain evil.

    Sick, evil, twisted, cold-hearted, and disgusting are about the nicest things I can say about any society that allows the brutal rape and torture of dogs. While we may have our problems here in the States, our people would never allow this! Seems like they vote it in over in Denmark. What a claim to fame! Wow! Happy with yourselves Denmark?

  3. You people are sick. Really? You find this behavior acceptable in Denmark. Wow your country truly needs some serious help. You people are evil and perverts. Whaat a sick country.

  4. Just sick, and ppl judge gays but don’t blink about sex with an animal, what a sick world we live in

  6. TruthSeeker says:

    Evil and sick! All these people involved deserve to be tortured to death by vigilantes. Animals are not for sex and torture. They are for hugging, kissing, and absolute kindness, and respect. They are beauiful, loving, and the light of the world. Animals are Gods most beautiful creation, as are flowers, trees, and plants.
