It is a typical gag in almost every way; a leather strap and buckle closure, but instead of having a ball, ring or bit, this gag has a perfectly formed silicone dog bone attached. Welcome to the kinky world of pet play!
What is the pet play fetish?
Pet play involves one or more individuals dropping their inhibitions and acting as an animal. A few of the identities people may take on include kitty, bunny, puppy, pony, piggy, cow, fox, wolf, or even a mythical unicorn.
The ways in which people play can be as soft, sweet, cuddly, and playful as a person chooses. Or the play can be as hard, rough, and humiliating as one chooses. This kink crosses all genders, orientations, and you will find it thrives with BSDM enthusiasts.
Typically, the submissive partner will be the animal and the dominant partner will be the “owner” or “trainer.” Occasionally you will hear of the dominant being the animal and dominating their submissive by hunting their “prey,” stalking, overpowering, or holding the submissive down. Sometimes two or more “pets” will play together.
Is Pet Play Normal?
While not everyone engages in pet play, history proves these desires are not
uncommon. There are many ancient myths and erotic tales where humans take on the attributes of animals. Evidence of pony play is traceable through erotic art dating back to the Bronze Age. Pony play is documented in British erotica of the 1800s.
Pet play enthusiasts are often inspired by movie, television, comic book characters like Cat Woman or Wolverine. You also see elements displayed in Anime comics and at cosplay conventions.

How Can I Engage in Pet Play?
It depends upon your natural persuasions.
Keeping your pet nude except for a collar and leash is quite common when playing with your pet. A collar and leash are helpful when engaging in obedience training or teaching your pet tricks.
People who like to play the part of a kitty or cat might wear kitten ears and engage in being pampered, cared for, pet and cuddled. Others will wear a sexy cat suit and long nails or sharp gloves to drive adrenalin and stimulate the skin of their partner.
You can also play in all the familiar ways one plays and interacts with a house pet. For example, you can:
Many people enjoy playing the part of a show pony and wearing equestrian gear.
Still other people prefer donning the persona of a wild animal, like a fox or a wolf. These players forgo the sweet cuddliness of a pet and play in more rough, primal ways; biting and ravishing their partners for fun!
Does Pet Play Always Involved Sex?
Nope. Pet play may involve things like sex and penetration, or the players may choose not to engage in sexual play and just roleplay in less explicit ways.
