Fap for the Mothman

Things get steamy (and weird) for three cryptozoologists tracking down Mothman in this new cryptozoological erotica story.

Mothman isn’t exactly a sex icon. Not like dinosaurs, Sasquatch, extraterrestrials, and the other lascivious creatures copulating with humans in the volumes of monster erotica available on Amazon.

But that is set to change with the new short e-book Fap for the Mothman. This is an important milestone because, as author Dr. Lenore Ronalds says, it may be “the first erotica involving the Mothman.”

Frank and Alec, interns with the American Cryptozoological Institute, are in Chicago following reports of Mothman sightings near Lake Michigan with little success. But thankfully they’re getting backup: World renowned cryptozoologist Professor Mary Ann Worth, known for her skills in tracking down and hooking up with with cryptids like Bigfoot and the Beast of Bray Road.

All in the name of science, of course.

Upon her arrival in Chicago, Ms. Worth follows a lead that brings her to the Skydeck of the Sears tower, where she has her first (sticky) encounter with the large, winged creature and it’s feathery member.

But don’t worry, she’s not the only one getting in on the action, as it turns out Mothman is gender fluid and capable of producing whatever genitalia it needs to get the job done. It seems John Keel left that part out of his book about the Point Pleasant Mothman encounters, but thankfully Fap for the Mothman even provides a historical glimpse into Mothman’s unusual mating activities.

In the end, Mary Ann, Frank, and Alec manage to find some very compelling evidence of Mothman.

Including samples. LOADS of samples.

Patterson & Gimlin Filmed Bigfoot 50 Years Ago Today

It’s been 50 years since the controversial footage of a large female Bigfoot was filmed by Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin in Northern California.

The famous Patterson-Gimlin film, which seems to depict a female sasquatch roaming the woods of Northern California, was shot 50 years ago today on October 20, 1967.

Patty, as the Bigfoot in the film has come to be called, is clearly seen walking off into the woods from the edge of Bluff Creek.

Watch the original footage:

When I met International Cryptozoology Museum founder Loren Coleman at last year’s Milwaukee Paranormal Conference (and got a signed plaster Bigfoot print from the Patterson-Gimlin filmsite) I asked him if he believed the film was authentic.

He said he is “97% sure it’s real.”

Cryptozoology is a pseudoscience involving the search for animals whose existence has not been proven. Cryptozoology is not a recognized branch of zoology or a discipline of science. It is an example of pseudoscience because it relies heavily upon anecdotal evidence, stories, and alleged sightings.

Cryptozoology comes from the Greek word kryptos meaning “hidden” and the word zoology which means the “study of animals.” Cryptozoology includes looking for living examples of animals that are considered extinct, such as dinosaurs. It also includes animals whose existence lacks physical evidence but which appear in myths, legends, or reported sightings, such as Bigfoot. Cryptozoology is also the study of wild animals dramatically outside their normal geographic ranges, such as phantom cats (also known as Alien Big Cats). The animals cryptozoologists study are often referred to as cryptids.

Sasquatch Draws Curious Crowds at World Taxidermy Championships

A taxidermy replica of Bigfoot by artist Ken Walker has been drawing curious crowds this week at the World Taxidermy and Fish Carving Championships in Springfield, Missouri.

Crowds have been gathering for a curious sight this week at the World Taxidermy and Fish Carving Competition in Springfield, Missouri. Standing over six feet tall and covered in thick fur, the lifelike replica of Sasquatch was created by taxidermist Ken Walker. Walker is a veteran champion of the competition’s Re-Creations category, which is for mounts created using parts that are not from the species being portrayed.

For his female sasquatch, Walker carved the body from hard foam, and then used the hide of a Scottish Highland cow for the skin and fur.

So why did a master taxidermist decide to craft such a controversial creature? In his article, journalist Wes Johnson writes:

A native of Canada, Walker said he saw something strange run across the road deep in the Alberta wilderness some 30 years ago and became fascinated with the legendary beast.

“It was on two legs during the bear season in the middle of nowhere — there were no cars, there were no people around,” he said. “I assumed whatever it was was a person. But they were like 400 yards away and running scared. It cleared a big ditch in one leap. I found it very odd because it ran up a hill without even slowing down. Even bears don’t do that.

“The guy with me said, ‘Was that a Sasquatch?’ And I said, ‘No, there’s no such thing.’ Back then you couldn’t convince me.”

Since then, however, Walker has heard enough stories to become a believer.

After many requests from fans of his work, the Smithsonian taxidermist set out to make a Bigfoot as realistic as he could, using his own experience, as well as the 1967 Patterson film as reference. The mount is the subject of an upcoming documentary called Big Fur. Apparently the cameras have been following him around the competition all week.
