Seit einer Weile spielen Homosexuelle in San Francisco und anderswo Rollenspiele als Lederhunde, Channel4 hat da jetzt eine Doku gedreht und der Guardian hat einen Artikel dazu.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung argued that our conscious minds contain intuitive, emotional, sensation and thinking archetypes. Are the sort of men drawn to puppy play simply exploring their intuitive self? “Absolutely,” says David. “Puppy play is exactly that – play. There is an immense amount of pleasure from gambolling around in a club playing with squeaky toys because you’re making people laugh, you’re being a cute little puppy. The gay scene can be very serious, scary and offputting. But if you’re going in with a little puppy hood, ears and a tongue, you look cute. You’re allowed to bound around and be enthusiastic, mischievous and friendly.”

Und wo wir grade beim Thema sind: Photos of Bondage Bunnies and Kinky Jesuses at an Easter Fetish Ball.

Alpha Pup Turbo is often at Pound Puppy with his pack, whose hierarchy includes beta and omega pups, a barking order he keeps in place with a soft touch and familial nudge. He also has a handler, who named him and watches over him. Pup Turbo, a teacher and researcher at UC Santa Cruz, told me, "When you think about real dogs, or 'bio pups,' and their owners, there is a lot of variability in those relationships. Dogs often have a lot of power in the relationship, so handler or alpha status affords more nuance and flexibility.

"I've met handlers and alphas who are very strict with their pups," Pup Turbo continued, "with many rules, leaning toward more of a control dynamic. I've also met handlers and alphas who are really more interested in the playful, nurturing, and mentoring aspect of the relationship. Dominance is maintained and respected, but in a less controlling manner. My relationship with my handler is more on the nurturing side, and that is also how I am with members of my pack."

I'll stick with real dogs, tho. Pun intended.
