My interest in vore definitely comes from my interest toward damsels in distress. I always root for the poor innocent girl but I can't help but get turned on by her fear and helplessness. Vore also offers a nice view of the poor girl's butt, legs and feet.

I do not claim to be an expert in such things...but i do wonder if it has something to do with BDSM.

If you are aroused by the idea of surrendering control of your body, and possibly your life, to someone else, isn't that basically what happens when prey is consumed and digested? That they are literally loosing control over their own flesh as it won't be there flesh anymore? So i can't help but wonder if vore, in a fantasy sense at least, can be seen as the ultimate act of submission or domination.
There definitely is an intersection between vore and BDSM. A big percentage of people who fave manips done by me at DA, also have quite some BDSM pics in their fav-folders. Surrendering and submission comes into play in both, so that is not really a big surprise. And don't let me get started on tentacle manips and bondage....

I have no idea what ever made me enjoy vore. Even as a kid, before I even was old enough to really have sexual feelings about anything, I loved playing with monster toys and having them eat figures. As I got older and entered puberty, I found myself aroused by seeing women eaten in movies and would cut out pictures from Victoria's Secret catalogs and eat them. I know for sure that part of what I like in vore has to do with my love of legs, skirts, and panties, which is why I almost exclusively draw or manip women getting eaten head first. I had a long period in early adulthood where I completely forgot about my love of seeing women getting eaten, until I watched the MST3K episode where they watched The Creeping Terror. After that, I began drawing vore and discovered more about the actual fetish, that it had a name and I wasn't the only one. That is how I ended up on DT.
lol I like headfirst for the same reason. Especially if she's wearing tights.

One thing with me is that there's a limit in how much I can care about the victim. It's why I don't fantasize about women I actually know. The idea of them getting eaten just bothers me too much. And I'm not saying anyone who fantasizes about people they know is a bad person or anything, a fantasy is just a fantasy. But it's something I noticed about me. Same way, there are some fictional characters I don't want to see getting vored because I like them too much.

So there's a sweet spot where the victim is someone I can empathize with, but not where I empathize with her much that I can't enjoy the fantasy. As an example:

Korra (from Legend of Korra) = Wouldn't enjoy seeing her get eaten because I like her
Talia (from Star Wars Home Voyage) = Perfect
Widowmaker (from Overwatch) = It'd be hot to see her get eaten, but I don't really care about her as a character so it wouldn't get me the way Home Voyage did
Oh same with me for sure. I have never once fantasized about a real woman getting eaten, and there are plenty of characters that are off-limits for me (Korra would be one of them, yeah). If I genuinely like and care about a character-even if I also find them attractive-I would never want to see them eaten and digested alive. There might be one or two exceptions to this, but even then I doubt I'd take any vore scenarios with them as far as I normally do.

I've never really connected the dots until now, but in my own work (I do poser stuff) I tend to use lots of girls from Dead or Alive, a game franchise I've never played and have little interest in. As far as I can tell, those characters were created solely to be "hawt and secksy" anyways. I have no attachment to them, so I don't give a toss about what happens to them in a vore scenario. I can still empathize with them on a basic level, but they're otherwise just eye candy and therefore good monster food.
I did fantasize about women I knew when I was younger, but once I was 20 or 21 years old I just stopped. Don't know why, but I couldn't enjoy it anymore.

To my teenage brain, girls were transitioning from being those icky, cootie-filled things on the school playground to beautiful sex goddesses, as it is with a lot of boys that age. I think the idea of seeing one go through something as terrifying as getting eaten and staying eaten became a weird holy grail of sorts, and somehow wires got crossed and it became a kink.

As for what draws me to it now, I have two ideas. In regards to the prey/victim, I think the empathy high idea makes sense. It's similar to watching a horror movie, getting attached to a character and hoping they survive...while also kinda hoping they don't so you can say the movie emotionally impacted you in some way. The more pain and suffering they go through, the more you feel for them. Does that make sense?
I think a lot of us went through the same thing (I know I did lol). Maybe that kind of fantasy is also like a way of "having" the woman. There's no way she can escape and she'll be part of the monster forever. Kind of a control fantasy, I guess?

And yeah, I hear you on the pain and suffering thing. That makes it way more intense when you care about the character. Watching something beautiful be slowly destroyed. Kinda like watching a classic cityscape get trashed in a monster movie, maybe? There's a reason Godzilla and King Kong attack cities a lot of people have heard of. Godzilla trashing Akron, OH might mean a lot for people in Akron but nobody else would care.

When I was really young, I was terrified at the thought of being eaten. Whenever I saw someone in media get nommed, I would think about how terrible of a death that would be and get hung up on it. Once I reached "that" age, I for some reason realized that I rarely ever saw girls or women get eaten, and the few times it ever happened they always escaped no worse for the wear. To my teenage brain, girls were transitioning from being those icky, cootie-filled things on the school playground to beautiful sex goddesses, as it is with a lot of boys that age.

Wow Phavore, that is eerily similar to my own experience. That's the EXACT same roller coaster my own thought process went through from childhood to puberty, from terror of vore to fascination with it. Thank you for sharing, because I don't think I fully understood the psychological reasons for it all until you put it so well and succinctly.

I have met several people online and RL that espouse some variation of empathy. From the patterns I have garnered through years of observation and light study, I believe it a common ingredient; however, in your case (Phavore & Processor) and others of similar sentiment, the empathy aspect is far more pronounced. I actually LIKE that it is more pronounced and shows you are more normal in the sense of emotions then those that are driven by anger or hate. I appreciate that. One person was so driven by his hatred of women it manifested in RL. I adore women so it is a hard pill to swallow for me. He wanted them to suffer, die slow and horribly and even wanted them to know he was the cause. He was unpopular at work, divorced, arrested for abuse and you get the gist. It was later learned he was abused at length by his mother and older sister and never learned how to socialize with women. So when failures happened in relationships he always blamed them for his pain, not his actions. His view was HE was normal and everyone else were the idiots. I have a close friend that her son is growing up the same way. She doesn't abuse him but instead enables him. His sister on the other hand...well...er, I am at a loss for words. No one wants to be around this kid and no self respecting girl would even consider dating him and he is still a teen.

My point is one that Phavore touched on. Many, if not most, of us develop interests early on. Sometimes even before puberty. We don't understand them but they catch the imagination. When those crazy hormones start to set in at the same time some of those interests are establishing themselves or you spend a lot of time with it during puberty, those interests imprint themselves in some psychological aspect and for most sexually. I liked the old movies where a girl is caught in quicksand or eaten by a monster or plant. Not at all sexual but I was always seeking out some old black and white Tarzan flick or such in hopes to see it happen. Puberty hit at the same time and well...connect the dots. When Tasha Yar of Star Trek: The Next Gen died in the sentient pool of black goo, I was like whoa that was cool but was saddened she died. She was a great character and hot too. I was hoping they would revive her or do some overused time travel plot to revive her but no she was sadly gone.

Another aspect is a female friend who I have had plenty of experience with in the past. As a child she was frequently tied up as a kid by her brothers and sisters as a prank. They would usually use duct tape. They would play cops and robbers, cowboys and indians, etc. and you can guess who was the one that was usually tied up. Puberty hit and fun was augmented by arousal. She didn't understand it for years but knew she liked it. Her friends and family didn't think of it until much later and she refrained from such behavior because it led to many harsh rumors and judgements. We met, she told me her history after a while and we started to explore. We eventually pushed the limits further and further. We created scenes like this (I have her permission to post as long as she is not identified in any way).

Believe it or not, she was into vore too and this was a vore scene of sorts.

Another, thing is I also like the Damsel in Distress element that 'rewards' me after I rescue her even though she has no idea, I was the one that set her up to be in that position in the first place.

I can go on and on but you guys are probably bored by now.
