Pet play holds immense popularity within the BDSM community, transcending various sexualities, genders, and kink preferences. It serves as an entry point for many newcomers to the world of Domination and submission (D/s), providing a safe and approachable means to explore their fetishes by assuming the role of a kitten or puppy. Furthermore, individuals within the leather community often embrace pet play in all its intricacies, encompassing elements such as leashes, collars, masks, cages, and the nurturing of their beloved pets. Moreover, the accessibility of pet play contributes to its wide popularity as a kink in the online BDSM realm.

Not every kinkster indulges in this particular fetish, but for those who are intrigued by the idea of temporarily setting aside their humanity or engaging in animal training, continue reading to discover the essence of animal roleplay.

Why pet play?

Besides it's fun to transform into an animal or some mystique creature, pet play serves to reinforce the dynamic of the Owner/owned relationship, mirroring the dependency of non-human pets on their owners. The owner exercises complete control, deciding when and what their pets eat, providing their toys and medical care, and assuming responsibility for their overall well-being. In a 24/7 Dominant/submissive (D/s) relationship, this parallel often holds true, where the submissive is fed after their Owner, dressed according to their Owner's preferences, and follows the rules set forth by their Owner, akin to the dynamics of non-human pets. The key distinction lies in the consent aspect. While non-human pets lack consent as they are chosen and brought home at the owner's discretion, in D/s pet play, the submissive willingly consents to become the property of their Owner, embracing their role.

Types of pet play

Pet play dynamics can differ depending on the preferences of the individuals involved and the specific animal(s) chosen for the role-playing scenes. According to BDSM Wiki, certain forms of pet play may incorporate elements of bondage or restrictions on movement. In some instances, a pet may have a designated handler or a dominant partner who takes on the role of grooming and training the pet. Alternatively, the pet may exhibit a combination of human and animal traits, such as engaging in barking, whimpering, puppy talk, or wearing a collar and leash while walking on two feet. Pet play encompasses various subcategories, including but not limited to:

  • Puppy play
  • Pony play
  • Kitten play
  • Piggy play

Different subtypes within pet play exhibit distinct practices and fetishes. Take, for instance, puppy play, which may incorporate activities like drinking water from a bowl. Seasoned individuals within the kink community who seek a deeper scene immersion often utilize common pet play essentials like collars, leashes, cages, masks, and pet bowls to enhance their roleplay experiences. The decision to incorporate or exclude additional gear ultimately depends on the preferences of the individuals engaging in the kink. For Somers and others, the use of pet play gear can contribute to achieving a desired headspace or mood during the play session.

Starting ideas for a pet play

Pet play serves as an inclusive and accessible kink for individuals exploring BDSM for the first time or experienced practitioners. Unlike activities such as rope play, impact play, or incorporating sex toys and penetrative sex, pet play primarily relies on imagination and fundamental kink skills to begin. However, effective communication plays a vital role in this dynamic. It is essential to have open discussions with your partner about boundaries, interests, needs, prior experiences (or lack thereof), and the establishment of safewords. This becomes even more crucial when a submissive, whether they assume the role of a pet or an owner, experiences limited movement, speech, or an increased risk of injury due to physical exertion.

  1. Imposing restrictions on movement through the use of bondage.
  2. Limiting verbal communication to specific words or animal sounds like "woof!" or "mew!" or utilizing more child-like phrases such as "up!" or "potty!".
  3. Engaging in training exercises like teaching puppies tricks, walking on leads and leashes, or ponies pulling a cart or plow.
  4. Eating and drinking from bowls without the use of hands or silverware.
  5. Learning to use a litter box instead of a toilet or going outside for elimination.
  6. Participating in playtime with appropriate toys, such as batting toys for kittens or tug-of-war toys for puppies.
  7. Demonstrating begging behavior in alignment with the chosen animal identity, like a puppy whining.
  8. Utilizing cages.
  9. Adhering to rules that prohibit sitting on furniture without permission.

Conclusion

That provides a brief introduction to the concept of pet play. However, the dynamics can become much more intricate when considering the unique dynamics between individuals and the specific animal(s) incorporated. It's important to note that pet play can encompass both sexual and non-sexual aspects, depending on the preferences and agreements of the couple involved. As with any other kink or activity, the nature of pet play is ultimately determined by the specific dynamics and boundaries established within the relationship.
