She has it all; she's young, attractive and well off with a succesfull career and the popularity that comes along with it. Unfortunately that's not all she has, Miki is hiding a very dark secret, a secret that could destroy her: she's addicted to masturbation and she can't stop for even a second!
Are humans still considered a form of animal?
Biologically, yes, for sure.
We are a multi-celled organism which lives on the by-products of other life-forms, and isn’t a fungus. Linguistically, though, the problem is that although we have the word “beast” to refer to “a mammal other than a human”, we don’t have a single simple word which encompasses all animals, other than humans.
Since “non-human animal” is a bit of a mouthful many people - including BBC wildlife presenters who really should know better - sloppily say “animal” when they mean “non-human animal”.
