tentacle overhaul

In category: Tag/Wiki Projects and Questions

At the behest of Snow Wolf this is getting its own dedicated thread.
TL;DR:
Tentacles designed to be penetrated (as opposed to the more common ones that penetrate you) are a bit of a mess, tag-wise

Picking up from where we left off in the "do we have a tag for this" thread:

Of those six, only half of them are tagged with fellatio, since the right kind penetration isn't quite there yet, though they're still tentacles that you penetrate rather than the other way around. Furthermore...

All four cases are technically correct. The first two have tentacles with petal-like bits that open up, however you wouldn't be able to penetrate either. While the last two do certainly have mouths, and by extension, holes, they're still clearly designed to give, not take (also applies to cases like ANIManimated anus areola bdsm big_breasts bondage bound breast_lick breasts captured clitoral clitoris clothing cunnilingus day female footwear human kill_la_kill legwear licking low_res mammal matoi_ryuuko nipples not_furry oral outside pussy pussy_juice raised_clothing raised_skirt restrained senketsu sex shaved_pussy shoes skirt sky solo spreading spread_legs stockings tentacle_mouth tentacles tentacle_sex thigh_highs tomboy tongue tongue_out vaginal warrior zone

There's also yet more cases where the tentacle is just a bit too generic or abstract for the categories and ends up with fellatio without being labeled as maw, mouth, or pussy:

I would suggest implementing something like a penetrable_tentacle tag, or re-purposing tentacle_pussy to be any tentacle designed to be penetrated

(I took the liberty of editing your links into thumbnails <3 Hope you don't mind)

This definetly does seem like a problem though. I don't do anything with tentacle tags though, so I'd love it if some people who are more tentacle-y could have an opinion here.... as, my opinion sounds a lot like "well, alias them all together and be done with it" and that's probably not ideal :)


I think the simplest solution would be to add a new tag, like penetrable_tentacle, have tentacle_fellatio and cum_in_tentacle imply it, and then probably manually sort any others that apply since mouths and maws don't necessarily mean you can penetrate them. Aliasing them all together would result in multiple things being suddenly mistagged accordingly.
