Alternative term use
As a furspeak or furry version for the English profanity word, Fuck (“Ah, yiff that!” or “Yiff You!”).
To express happiness, success, or feeling (“Yiffy”).
To describe erotic, sexual, or pornographic anthropomorphic media (noun).
As a descriptive acronym (YIFF or Y. I. F. F. – “Young Incredibly Fuckable Furry”).
Yiffing is a term for sexual intercourse between furs.
The exact time the term “yiffing” was coined is disputed.[who?] The most popular etymology stems from the 1980s, citing that “yiff” was the sound foxes make while mating.
