Should foreskin and circumsized imply human penis here? They do on derpi, but I'm not sure.

Foreskin no, because of art like this: https://e621.net/posts/1801832 or this https://e621.net/posts/1545775

circumcised I think yes, because nobody would know if some strange animal penis that had a foreskin was circumcised (maybe if it happened in a story, but how likely is that?), it's only known on human ones that they were circumcised.

BTW. you wrote circumsized, but there is no tag like this, the proper tag and proper spelling is circumcised

Man foreskin on non-human dicks looks so…awful. Even worse when there's foreskin on dicks that also go in sheaths. I've seen that too.

Also, oops.

Why tags like white tiger or black cat are marked as a species tag and why they even exist? Should things like "green wolf" or "pink fox" be a tag too then? ;) We could just use tags for fur color for all species, because why exactly use tag an eye color but not for color (or other things)? What is the reasoning behind such a choice other than "it was like that on Derpi"? Is there some widespread fetish of being turned on only be a specific eye color? ;)

Black cat is just the coat color, the cat breed that is excuslively black is named Bombay cat, but there are 22 other breeds that can be black and cats of no particular breed can be black too:
A black cat is a domestic cat with black fur that may be a mixed or specific breed, or a common domestic cat of no particular breed. The Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA) recognizes 22 cat breeds that can come with solid black coats. The Bombay breed is exclusively black

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_cat

Should tabby cat, tortoiseshell cat and calico cat be species tags too?

And what about things like

Silver fox
Black fox
Cross fox
Piebald fox
Cinnamon fox
Amber fox
Lavender fox
​Colicott fox
Copper fox
Pastel fox
Marble fox
Georgian white fox
Moon glow fox
Platinum fox
etc.

Those are all variants of red fox (Vulpes vulpes). Here is a full list, there is over 50 fox coat types listed on this site: https://livingwithfoxes.weebly.com/red-fox-color-mutations.html ;)

But they are not species, just color variants inside the same species, I don't think this should warrant the brown tag color.

Is there any reason why "futa" is now "penis on female", but the orientation tags are futa x <Gender>? This threw me off when tagging. Should it be more consistent?

Below I proposed descriptions for some tags that need them. They are are mostly (but not exclusively) taken just from the first page of tag list, so at the moment those above count of 22. There are more tags on that first page that need descriptions, but this post would get too long, so for now I chose only the most important ones.

sexthis description is based on the Derpibooru one:
short: Sexual contact with genitals or anuses (even if not directly visible).
detailed: This tag and any of the tags aftersex, imminent sex or implied sex cannot be on the same image, except in cases of an image containing more than one depiction of the same characters. Sex is being performed if and only if a genital or anus is being stimulated in some way by another.

aftersex — used for depictions of the follow-up of sexual acts when the genitals or anus is no longer stimulated by another character, but it's obvious that the sex had just happened (e.g. because of the presence of cum).
imminent sex — when the depicted situation heavily suggest that sex is about to happen.
implied sex — when the depicted situation implies that sex had happened in the past or is happening offscreen.

ambiguous gender — when the character's gender can't be determined from the picture.
detailed: examples include feral forms of animals that have no visual distinction between males and females or images where only part of a character is visible.

penetration — Used when any character in the image is penetrated by a penis, tail, finger or a tentacle (something other than a toy).
knot — spherical area of erectile tissue at the base of a penis that swells up during erection, found most commonly on canines.
human penis — penis of the Homo sapiens species, commonly found also on anthro character or humanoids.
detailed: Can have foreskin or be circumcised. Can be flaccid, semi-erect or erect.

flaccid — for depictions of penises that are not in the state of arousal
detailed: see also: erection and semi-erect
erection — when penis becomes becomes firm, engorged, and enlarged.
detailed: see also: flaccid and semi-erect
semi-erect — when a penis is in between being flaccid and erect, e.g. after ejaculation or when the erection is not fully formed yet.
detailed: see also: flaccid and erect

sheath — animal equivalent of foreskin that covers the penis when it's not erect
detailed: see also: genital slit, cloaca

genital slitbased on Derpibooru description but with some changes:
detailed: like sheath but completely inside of the body. It might be present on creatures that usually have testicles inside of their bodies, such as reptiles, dragons, birds or marine mammals. May look like vulva when penis is not poking out of it, so don't get confused. When the character have no separate orifice for anus, use cloaca instead.

cloaca — Common opening for digestive, urinary and genital tracts, present both in males and females. Use this tag only when the character does not have separate anus. Might be present on reptiles, dragons, birds, marine creatures etc.

sheathed — when penis is entirely covered by penile sheath.
detailed: Equivalent of flaccid, see also: penis tip for when only the tip of the penis is poking out of the sheath.

penis tip — when only the tip of the penis is poking out of the sheath.

presenting — when a character is showing their butt and/or genitals to the viewer.
blowjob — oral sex performed on a penis, fellatio.
detailed: see autofellatio for the solo equivalent during masturbation and

cunnilingus when oral sex is performed on vulva instead of a penis.
masturbation — when a character is either touching or penetrating themselves or is inserting something into their own body in order to pleasure themselves.
precum — a clear, colorless, viscous fluid that is emitted from the urethra of the penis during sexual arousal. Also called pre-ejaculate or pre-ejaculatory fluid.
foreskin — loose part of skin that covers the end of a penis.
detailed: See also circumcised for human penises with foreskin removed.

circumcised — used for depictions of penises that had their foreskin removed. This tag should not be applied to animal genitalia, as they naturally don't have foreskins (with the exception of some primates).
clitoris — part of a vulva, its external pea shaped part called glans is the most sensitive female erogenous zone. Anatomical equivalent of a penis.
detailed: Clitoral glans can be partially or entirely covered by clitoral hood.
clitoral hood — female anatomical equivalent of a foreskin, covers the clitoral glans.
taint — space between anus and balls, perineum.
humanoid — character that greatly resembles a human but has some anatomical differences like wings, animal legs, animal ears or other body parts.
detailed: Examples include catgirls, some alien species (asari,

togruta, mythological creatures (elf, mermaid) or bipedal robots that look like humans.

spread butt — when character's buttocks are spread apart either by fingers or an object.

spread vulva — when character's vulva is spread apart either by fingers or an object without inserting anything inside.
detailed: if the vulva is spread apart revealing vaginal tract without any external influence use gaping vagina instead.

gaping vagina — when the vulva is spread revealing vaginal tract without any external influence.
detailed: if the vagina is spread apart by fingers or an object, but without inserting anything inside use spread vulva instead.

spread anus — when character's anus is spread open either by fingers or an object without inserting anything inside.

Yay :) I will try to write descriptions for more tags tomorrow.

Also it seems that the text in short description can't be in italics so it's just "_Homo sapiens_" in description of human penis instead of Homo sapiens :(

And I put two times the same word ("becomes") in the description for erection, oops. This needs fixing too.

In the detailed description of clitoris that second sentence part about clitoral hood was supposed to go to the clitoral hood tag ;)

In humanoid there is ")" bracket missing after "togruta" but that's my fault as I missed it in my post. And also formatting with the @ @ symbols for elf is needed to be consistent (I also missed this).

Also when I now look at descriptions of anthro on anthro and feral on feral then I think that it should be "between two or more" instead of "between two" in both of this tags, as those would apply just as much to a multiple anthro characters as to only two anthro characters, but the current description indicates only two. Or maybe just as simple as "between feral/anthro characters" without any "two or more" if this is still clear in meaning?

I also missed a letter "h" in "anthro" in the description of human on anthro :<

Also in hyper it should be "body parts" not "body part", again I missed a letter in my post.

and in the gaping anus it should be "use spread anus instead." instead of "use spread vulva instead.", a mistake during copy-pasting.

——

Sorry for those mistakes, but it was so long that I missed some things, I will try to do better next time ;)

Some new tag descriptions:

short: A floating penis that is clearly not attached to anything. If there is a fully visible character and a disembodied penis then do not tag it as solo.
