Kinky Kittens and Bouncy Bunnies: The Many Aspects of Pet Play

This month the UK are celebrating National Pet Month—a month dedicated to the love (and responsible care) of pets! What better time to start delving in to the thrilling fetish of Pet Play and some of its many aspects?

By Emmeline Peaches

What Is Pet Play?

Pet Play is essentially a form of BDSM roleplay in which one takes on the role of an animal and is under the care (or discipline) of a minder/handler/owner/trainer.

As part of this individuals in the Pet Play community may don outfits (sometimes leather/latex/PVC and sometimes something less ‘erotic’) or use props to help them get in to the mindset of the ‘pet’ of their choice.

Much like the adult baby and general sub/dom community, many people who participate in Pet Play quote the appeal of a release from responsibility and permission to exist in a carefree state as part of the appeal for them.

However, in addition to this Pet Play also has its own aesthetic, culture, and appeal that helps it stand out from the crowd.

The appeal to the animalistic (and animal magnetism) is certainly part of the Pet Play community, but does not link to bestiality or any other form of animal abuse.

People who embody certain pets are often adopting the persona of that particular pet, rather than feeling any form of attraction towards animals themselves. Meanwhile handlers and owners see it as yet another fun form of roleplay and a cute way to explore the sub/dom dynamic.

Besides, who doesn’t love a scratch behind the ears every now and then?

What Types Of Pet Play Are There?

As you can imagine, the potential of Pet Play means that there is a whole menagerie of animals that could inspire fetishist. However, there are some common trends in the Pet Play movement which are easier to identify and define.

Puppy Play: One of the most common among the designated Pet Play community, Puppy Play will often involve one individual taking up the role of a puppy or dog, whereas the other is their trainer and/or handlers.

Dogs are typically associated with playfulness, loyalty, and an eagerness to please, which can allow for some very sweet and sentimental exchange. Alternatively, one might find themselves confronted with a growling disobedient hound that needs to be muzzled and corrected.

On average, most pups tend to exist within the LGBTQI culture (specifically among homosexual circles) but anyone can dabble in Puppy Play.

Pony Play: Another incredibly well-known type of Pet Play, Pony Play is so intricate that it could justify its own article.

People who engage in Pony Play usually purchase incredibly stunning fetish wear and engage in dressage and other performances, under the mindful training of their rider.

Many ponies are elegant and refined, but there can also be a degree of humiliation too. Some ponies are forced to ferry their owner around in a carriage while being whipped to spur them on (or punish insolence). One could also take on the role of the unruly stallion, in need of being ‘broken’ before being suitable to ride.

The wilfulness and high-spirits of horses is alive and well in the Pony Play community.

Bunny Play: Without a doubt the most mainstream of all Pet Play scenarios, the ‘Bunny Girl’ is so ubiquitous that you have almost certainly encountered it already. Who knows—you may have even donned some bunny ears and engaged in some light-hearted Pet Play yourself without even considering the implications.

Because of this Bunny Play could be considered tame and, in some ways, it is. It’s basically the fuzzy handcuffs of the Pet Play world in terms of mainstream involvement, and considered by some as just as much of a novelty.

However, people who think this way might want to think twice before dismissing the rabbits among us. Bunny girls and boys act as a crucial and relatable bridge for most people in to the otherwise often confusing world of Pet Play and helps cultivate a conversation that otherwise might not be possible. Not too bad for a fluffy little cotton-tailed critter.

Cat Play: Sensual, commanding, defiant, and only loving to those who have earned their affection, those who engage in Cat Play embody a more independent, defiant, and cheeky element of the Pet Play community.

A cat is owned by no one, and yet playing the kinky kitten can have its own appeal—a sense of choosing to be dominated rather than being innately inclined towards submission.

If you choose to engage in Cat Play and find yourself as a dom then you may find you need to work harder to get your pussy purring, but that moment will almost certainly be worth it.

Feral Play: Foxes, wolves, strays, and wildcats. For those who want to go one step further than Cat Play, Feral Play offers a chance to dabble in Pet Play (and the submission of having a potential owner) while also spending more time indulging in independent actions and the sheer desire to simply embody a certain animal.

With Feral Play your inclinations are the only limit, and so there is a diverse range of scenarios that can emerge. You may be a super cute, hyperactive fox girl who yips merrily at the idea of being owned, or you might be a majestic jaguar whose regal attitude is worthy of reverence and whose affection is never easily earned.

Whatever the scenario ownership or submission is usually the end goal, it’s simply the lead up to resistance and the traits embodies that vary.

Not all of us want to play nice straight away after all…

And That’s All For Now!

Join us next week when we delve more in to Pet Play and look in to what helps make the perfect pet (and, by extension, the perfect pet/owner dynamic).

Until then we’d love to know what type of animal you’d want to embody in a sub/dom situation. Or do you fancy yourself as a handler/trainer instead? Either way we’d love to know, so feel free to send us your comments and get yourself in a primal mood.
