Thousands of weirdos are watching online tutorials on how to “shape-shift” into animals amid fears it’s due to a rising desire for sex with animals.

A video promising to turn listeners into wolves has more than 160,000 views and nearly 6,000 comments on YouTube.

One asked: “I have a weird question and I don’t really know why I even thought of this but if you get pregnant in wolf form, do you get pregnant in human form?”

Rory Powers on This Paranormal Life podcast, who has been exploring the growing interest in shape-shifting, said: “It sounds like she’s only wanting to become a wolf to have a wolf baby.”

His co-presenter Kit Grier added: “Or just to bang a wolf.

“If this is the way that you want to feel good about yourself and gain confidence and grow your self-esteem - go wild, go crazy - as long as you’re not hurting anyone or damaging yourself I’m all for it.”

The bizarre question got mixed responses from other listeners.

One said: "I thought of the same question. But it was a shower thought. No need to worry."

But another said: "Lol. I'm dizzy from laughing."

The clips have been watched more than 500,000 times on the Therian Subliminals Youtube channel which boasts 2,500 subscribers.

Fans are promised supernatural powers and the ability to transform into wild animals after listening to them on repeat.

Many appear to be schoolchildren with the most popular video being for wolf transformations, followed by one for cat shapeshifting at 46K views.

But their creator has been forced to ban requests for online tutorials that are "sexual, evil, demonic, beauty/appearance, or mind control".

On the question of shape-shifting pregnancies, they replied: "Erm. I have no idea. Haven't really thought about that xD Maybe, I have no idea what would happen when you shift back tho."
