The Psychology of Tentacles


This all started as a joke. You see, a few days ago I misread a tweet from a friend. She was writing about the “tentacles of psychology.” I misread it as “psychology of tentacles.” In my defence, I had just woken up when I saw that tweet. So, in true style, said Twitter Friend, fondly called Tentabunny, decided to take the concept and run away with it.

This is where we stand:

Get to class, people!

    This is gonna be hilarious. xD

    Oh man, one of the possible angles to research: a -female- tentacle monster — penis envy?

      Doesn’t that then beg the question: do tentacle monsters actually have sex like normal humans, or are they possibly asexual or androgynous?

      • "Tentabunny" September 20, 2010 / 12:39 AM

        Do they derive any intrinsic pleasure from raping humans, or is it merely instrumental?

    tentacles are for foreplay before the penis does the rest for the climax, don’t underestimate the power of penis, it’s the source for pleasure & life !

      I don’t think that’s quite up to mark, my friend. Go do your homework! :3

    I never did say that they enjoy the rape out of sadism, it could be for some form of nourishment or ritual; I do not claim to know.

    • Jha September 20, 2010 / 5:57 AM

      Since rape is done out of sadism, that’s not quite the right word for the act then!

        I wish Paul the Octopus could participate here, he might more insight with his tentacles, but poor thing only managed to guess winners but never gave chance for him to elope..

    The poor tentacle monsters are so MISJUDGED. It needs to be cleared up. =/

    • Naoko Kensaku September 20, 2010 / 12:57 PM

      Suggested readings and syllabus then, professor? :3

    Let’s be fair, it’s not always the tentacle monster’s idea.

    In many ways, I daresay they could be considered a persecuted minority. Imagine one just walking down the street, maybe stopping into a cafe for some coffee and a croissant, maybe going over and checking out the new releases in a bookstore window…

    And having to deal with all the screaming people running away from him/her/it on sight, as well as all the people running TOWARDS.
