Artist’s Description:

The Animal Sex Coloring Book comes from the alternative world of Poppers the Pony. It is her attempt at an “educational tool” for humans to discover animal sexualities that may or may not be so different from their own sexualities. In Poppers’ world there is no negation of heteronormativity because it does not exist. Queerness of animals is simply regular life.

The book conflates leather culture and animal personas with scientifically documented animal sexuality and gender variation. There is no information to assist the reader in deciphering between fact and invention. Each page has simple text that mimics children’s books.
