Example text

Not all acts that offended morals and caused shame were outlawed, but rather only those where there was physical contact with the genitalia of an animal, with the intention to trigger sexual stimulation or satisfaction in oneself or the animal (Merki 1948). The severity of the punishment depended foremost on the “similarity to coitus” of the crime. Over time the interpretation of offense 28 Bolliger & Goetschel Bestiality and Zoophilia for “unnatural fornication” underwent several changes (Merki 1948; Muth 1969).

Any violation of this regulation will be punished with a fine of up to 7,500 Euro, or 15,000 Euro in cases of recurrence. The production and trade of any zoophilic images is regulated under the national law on pornography. Under this law, the manufacturing, publishing, importing and exporting, and distributing of obscene writings and images are considered crimes, provided that they are carried out with commercial intentions. The penalty for these offenses is a prison sentence of up to a year and an additional fine of 360 day’s rates (§ 1 Pornografiegesetz).

In particular, this conclusion was justified by concerns that not only human dignity, but also the dignity of the animal was infringed upon by zoophilic interactions, and that an animal could not freely consent to them. Furthermore, it was reasoned that zoophilia was not just an expression of loneliness and closeness, but primarily a sexual crime that reflected deranged behavior. The close connection between animal abuse and sexual crimes was stressed, as well as the existing connection between abuse of animals and children.
