But, most vorarephiles’ behavior is fantasy-based, even though there were real instances such as for instance Armin Meiwes, the‘Rotenburg that is so-called Cannibal’.

Meiwes, a pc specialist, gained global notoriety for killing and consuming a fellow German male victim (Bernd Jurgen Brande).

Meiwes had presumably been fantasizing about cannibalism since their youth and frequented cannibal fetish websites and posted around 60 adverts asking if anybody want to be consumed by him.
