Puppy Role Play Fetish Sex Toys South Africa
One of the latest sexual kinks at the moment and also trending on social media is to dress up as puppies for play and to get off. So what is this new craze all about?
Some guys (and girls) feel like they turn into an animal when they have sex. The new BDSM bondage craze is to dress up as an animal when they do it. Puppy play (also known as pup play) is a form of consensual, adult role play and it is particularly popular in the gay leather and bondage community, where guys dress up and embody the characteristics of a frisky dog. These pups wear a Dog Mask or Hood with other accessories such as a Tail, usually in the form of a butt plug, collars, harnessed and armbands.
But these pups are not strays! They typically have an owner, also called their master, the main sexual fetish being fulfilled here is the don sub relationship where the pup does what the master want. The owner may walk their pup on a leash, pet them, and shower them with love, just like they would a real dog. But unlike with real dogs, the owner may also have sex with their pup. Some guys simply get a lot of satisfaction out of being dressed up and treated like a dog.
What is the appeal of puppy play?
There is very often a dominant / submissive dynamic that goes along with pup play, even though the relationship is playful. This relationship can be between lovers in person or via social media where the player dresses up as a puppy and gets commands from their followers.
Most puppy play fetish players say they love the release of inhibitions that they get out of pup play. It is a way to escape any problems and just have fun. Pups physically get down on all fours and interact with each other or their masters like pups. They lick, nuzzle, and tackle each other, often with no verbal communication other than puppy noises. Most are drawn to this pup play fetish for sex. Wearing a mast makes it seem anonymous, both in person or on social media. The animalistic and anonymous aspect of masturbating or fucking can be a huge turn-on. Pup players are aroused by the fact that people do not know what they look like while wearing a pup mask.
In the gay community, pup play is often a subset within the leather or bondage scenes since you wear a mask, harness and collar as a pup. The love for pup play often goes beyond just desire for sex, transforming into a puppy is also about escaping human life. It is unrestrained and not bound by the rules of heteronormativity that comes from living in a straight dominated culture. It is also a way to connect with other gay men on a more primal level.
