PA. GOP Senate Aide: Solicited Teen for Gay Furry “Yiffing”

June 2, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Pennsylvania state Senator, Jane Orie, a conservative Republican known for her stance on toughening the state’s sexual predator laws, fired her aide, 40-year-old Alan David Berlin, after he was arrested on charges he propositioned a 15-year-old boy over the Internet for furry sex.

The accused “furvert” apparently spent his down time dressed in a giant panda costume searching for like minded furries to “yiff” with.

In yet another case of a closeted gay hypocritical Republican, Alan David Berlin was caught exchanging instant messages with the teen victim after the boy’s parents discovered the messages and contacted the police.

Berlin was trolling on an online site of “furries” under the screen name of “alan_panda_bear,” where he asked the boy for a picture and wrote, “When will your folks be out?” In other recovered messages, Berlin described explicit sex acts and discussed “yiffing.”

Yiffing is the term used for sexual activity between people role-playing as anthropomorphic animal characters, commonly referred to as furries. The animal characters within the furry fandom possess human attributes and walk on two legs.

Most of the furries are similar to Trekkies and other groups who like to role-play, dress-up in costumes and are avid comic book fans. There is even an organization devoted to furries, named Anthrocon that holds yearly furry conventions, which claims a membership of 3,000 furries as of 2007.

However, there is a subculture of “furverts,” like Berlin, who hang out in online chat rooms looking for cyber sex and real-life hook ups with other furries for yiffing.

Ok, back to Berlin’s furry panda antics. And, yes, there is more. According to the criminal complaint, Berlin planned to meet the 15-year old victim in the backyard shed of the boy’s home for some yiffing. He also attempted to lure the boy to a hotel room to photograph the boy having sex with another adult man.

Berlin arranged to meet the boy in person near his home last week, but didn’t show up. Some of the messages originated from Berlin’s Senate computer.

Berlin also placed an online personal ad using his favorite screen name, “alan_panda_bear,” which reads: “I’m a Daddyfur and Caretaker and I am looking for a babyfur to be my mate and my companion in a long-term committed relationship,” the ad says. “I am a hopeless romantic and very affectionate, freely giving hugs, scritches, cuddles and kisses.”

According to the ad, Berlin was seeking another furry with a car between the ages of 20 to 25, who would call him “Daddy.”

Thankfully, the Attorney General’s Child Predator Unit, confiscated Berlin’s hard drives and charged him with unlawful contact with a minor related to involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, and with three additional second-degree felonies and two third-degree felonies.

The charges carry penalties of up to 20 years in prison and a $25,000 fine. State Senator Jane Orie released a statment saying she was “shocked and appalled.”

Berlin was arraigned and currently sits in a jail cell until he can raise a $250,000 bond.

    Watch out for Republicans infiltrating the fandom, it’s not as if Republicans have a great track record of being left alone with minors and other dirtiness, lewd emails to interns, airport toilets etc. 😉

    the guy needed to be caught. It gives us a bad name. theres a limit no matter who you are.If your intended mate is too young to make his or her own decisions its wrong to try and lure them to you, they need a chance to explore their own lives. find someone closer to your age so you can live your lives together longer. and come on trying to get him to have sex with another man, thats not love, thats just selfish and trying to please your own needs. The worst thing he could have done was trick that kid into thinking he liked him and then trying to use him like that
