This article explores the nature of sexuality in narratives about shape-changing fox spirits from the Ming and Qing. The concept of an inherently sexual species was refined through associations with sexually marked categories of women, notably prostitutes and dangerous concubines, which work differently in different narrative genres. Although more attention is devoted to sexually disruptive vixens, stories about male foxes with human sexual partners of either gender shed light on gendered ideas of the relationship between will and desire. At the same time as the fox narrative explores the danger of sexuality, concepts of parasitism and self-advancement divert focus away from desire as such.
