The other day, on Twitter of course, I came across the hashtag #doggers and I was like, “Look at all these fools, misspelling #Dodgers!” I had never heard of dogging before. Oops!
After a bit of Googling, I found “dogging” is British slang for engaging in a public display of sex. Not just “caught having public sex.” There’s more to it than that.
Dogging is done on purpose, all with the hope of getting “caught.” UPROXX even published exposé on it while back. From their work:
Basically, [dogging] involves two people notifying a bunch of randos on the internet that they are going to a car park to bone in their automobile. While the couple is having sex, this group of strangers from the internet gathers around the car, watches through the windows and masturbates.
It’s like porn, only instead of watching it on your computer or television, you watch it live through a car window while standing next to other people.
So, a more apt definition of “dogging” is pre-planned live sex performance enhanced with voyeurism.
And there are hotspots! This article talks about dogging hotspots in Birmingham. Here, an outraged citizen is calling for action to be taken against a dogging hotspot near a park. This BBC report says police patrols have been stepped up to prevent dogging at another location. Here’s a piece on police chasing a dogger through the woods after an “incident.” And, if all that’s not enough dogging for you, you can probably dog in your own hometown. The craze has caught on! (Here’s a dogging finder in the US.)
Why do we care about dogging? Well, camming is a multicultural, multinational, geographically diverse activity with a widely varied clientele, so knowing sex slang from around the world makes sense. If dogging is as popular as my searches indicate, it’s only a matter of time before a client interested in this particular kink comes into your room.
