What is human pup play?
When you first look at a sexual fetish activity, it can seem truly bizarre. Human pup play is no exception.
Like any sexually expressive activity, pup play can be interpreted and performed differently by different folks in different places. What works for a bunch of guys in Sydney, Australia certainly can be different to what a few fellas in Munich, Germany are doing. There can be a few fundamentals that are worth explaining.
Human pup play is simply a person losing their clothes and inhibitions and behaving like a dog to an extent. There can be a deep intense roleplay, with a human pup exploring the world from all fours and forming a deep bond with an Owner. Or it can be light hearted fetish play.
A human being a pup strives to let go of inhibitions, and take a break from the stress of the human world for a period by personifying a different being.
Often you will hear human pup say they want to simplify their desires and motivations as they embrace a new expression of themselves, one that is more animal and certainly less socialised human. As a puppy they can wag a tail, lick their owner's hand, and show feelings in new and direct ways without fear of judgement. It is one of the most thoughtful, playful, and sane BDSM scenes as it involves taking into consideration how you express yourself and behave as you let go.
Allowing someone to explore aspects of themselves may be fun, but what's erotic about it? Sometimes it is pure role-playing with no erotic component, because when a pup is a sleepy pup, there is rarely any sexual interaction. For others they may seek discipline in pup play so they experience dominance and submission which is the turn-on in itself. The pup is always a human pup capable of frisky human sexual behaviour with other pups or their owner. Woof!
