It’s no secret that men and women enjoy all sorts of kinks these days. Some are pretty common, while others tend to be more obscure, but that doesn’t make them less fun by any means. Nevertheless, there’s one fetish that seems to top all others — puppy play. We’re here to tell you all about it and why you should try it.
1. It will satisfy your curiosity
The puppy play kink is a form of animal role-play that’s trending these days. It consists of two partners — a handler and the puppy — who act in a somewhat Dom/sub relationship that you usually see in BDSM. However, it doesn’t need to involve any aspects of bondage.
Just like all dogs, curiosity is a big part of this kink. What dog doesn’t want to sniff everything and anything? Hence, the puppy in the relationship can act carelessly, just like an actual canine, while still loving their handler. And if they’re good enough, the Dom will reward them with a crotch sniff and a tap on the back.
2. The pup headspace is extremely liberating
The common trope of modern life is pressure and overall stress. We all face it on some level. But if you go into pet play, you get the chance to live a pretty chill life, just like most loving pets do. From good boy/girl shouts to chew toys, there’s little that will treat your mental health while in a pup headspace.
The whole point of kinks is to escape the real world. For those couple of hours, the participants leave reality and settle in their fantasies. And just like that, pup play and BDSM help you forget about your daily struggles. In some ways, it’s pretty similar to yoga or even running.
3. The sex is amazing
Kinks and fetishes are all about sex in the end. And the puppy headspace can make for some great intercourse if you want to. Nevertheless, being a sub while acting like a dog doesn’t mean you can’t be the alpha while in bed. It can work both ways, but it’s understandable why most people think the handler calls the shots.
Just imagine this — you and the handler play fetch, he rubs your head and tells you that you’re a good boy/girl and then fucks the hell out of you. Doesn’t it sound great? Well, it’s certainly one of the ways you can go about your kink. But you can always act like an alpha dog, get treats whenever you want, and then butt fuck your owner.
The real human-canine power exchange is pretty dynamic. Hence, there’s no reason not to play around with all sorts of activities. From wrestling on the floor to your handler rubbing your dog ears, you can automatically switch gears and have sex. It’s simply a great way to relieve stress and have great fun.
4. Pups are a tight-knit community
Another great thing about this kink is that there’s a big pup play community where you can find people to talk to and share experiences. And most importantly, most are friendly and willing to give out advice and help each other. There are numerous online chat groups and social media accounts where you can find new human puppy friends.
In some cases, they offer the luxury of staying at each other’s places if you need to travel to another city in the States. Unlike in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, when the sexual revolution swept the floor of bigotry, the web of the community is so large that you’ll have an easy time finding people to interact with. The times are kind to kinksters nowadays.
5. Sex is not a requirement
Although we’ve said fetishes are mostly about sex, pups and their handlers don’t need to have intercourse for the role-play to work. Moreover, some don’t even want it. They intend to act like real dogs and owners, so they skip the penetration part.
Sure, hugs and caressing should be a part of it, but you don’t need to make it sexual. It all depends on you and your partner. In other words, whatever makes the two of you tick and act like dogs and humans.
6. The gear is really cool — But not necessary
In case you love to dress up, puppy play is a thing for you. From butt plug puppy tails to dog snouts made from leather, you can find all sorts of clothes to wear. However, none of it is necessary if you don’t want to use it. Again, it all comes down to how you feel about your puppy-handler relationship.
And if you don’t want it, we’d still suggest you get some knee pads to keep your knees from harm after all that walking on all fours. But, hey! If you wish to make it as real as possible, who are we to argue, right? So, check some gear out if you’d like, we’re sure you’ll find something suitable for you and your partner.
7. Getting collared is surprisingly romantic
Most people don’t associate romance and pup play, but we’re here to tell you they’re wrong. Playing around like that can be as sweet as proposing to your darling while the sun is setting and the band is playing the cheesiest of songs. And in our eyes, the process of putting on a collar is what makes it the most romantic.
Going to a pet store, searching for a collar that will suit your body and pup personality is what it’s all about. And once you find it and add tags, you’ll realize how ceremonial and romantic the whole thing can be. Putting it on for the first time is unlike anything you’ve ever done before. Believe us.
