Well ... Okakie Doakie, then.
SEE! I told you we shouldn't have allowed gay marriage! :lol:

The story: https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2016/may/25/secret-life-of-the-human-pups-the-men-who-live-as-dogs

Partial SNIP
"It’s easy to laugh at a grown man in a rubber dog suit chewing on a squeaky toy. Maybe too easy, in fact, because to laugh is to dismiss it, denigrate it – ignore the fact that many of us have found comfort and joy in pretending to be animals at some point in our lives.

Secret Life of the Human Pups is a sympathetic look at the world of pup play, a movement that grew out of the BDSM community and has exploded in the last 15 years as the internet made it easier to reach out to likeminded people. While the pup community is a broad church, human pups tend to be male, gay, have an interest in dressing in leather, wear dog-like hoods, enjoy tactile interactions like stomach rubbing or ear tickling, play with toys, eat out of bowls and are often in a relationship with their human “handlers”.

In the documentary, we see Tom, AKA Spot, take part in the Mr Puppy Europe competition in Antwerp, a mix of beauty pageant, talent show and Crufts; David, AKA Bootbrush, talk to camera in a leather dog mask; two pups walk through London pretending to wee on lampposts to raise awareness of their identity; and lots of men jumping up for “treats”, barking and wagging their mechanical tails."

Interesting! I saw a similar program once on adults who like to behave like babies. Wear diapers, sleep in cribs, etc.

I also discovered by accident the world of feeders and their feedees. Yes, it's a thing. In the most extreme relationships, the feeder feeds the feedee through to physical incapacitation. Seems to be a control thing. For some couples there was also a sexual element.

The world is wacky and wonderful and full of all kinds.

Yeah, I saw that on Facebook.

I am a live and let live person. And despite trying hard not to judge, I do find that to be odd. Especially since the woman on the left looks like she's been goosed.

I saw this too. It kind of reminded me of an article I read about people dressing up as horses, etc. I'm sure it's very different, but must meet the needs of the people participating. As you say....people vary! :wavey:
