Where did the term dogging come from?
Wikipedia’s Dogging Definition
While there isn’t a set place of origin for the term Dogging, most people assume that it comes from saying you’re going to walk the dog. This was a popular euphemism for going out and finding a stranger to sleep with before returning back home. It was then shortened over time to the slang term of dogging, which is the act of having sex in a public or semi public place with a total stranger.
Some people think that it comes from the idea of going to a ‘dog park’ to socialize, as well, which is why many of the locations that are popular dogging destinations have been dubbed dogging parks – even when it happens to be at a lake or in the woods, as opposed to being at a car park. Dogging being a trend originating from the UK means that we tend to believe the walking the dog origin, as the UK tends not to call parks “dog parks”, that is an American term.
Dogging has only recently gotten a bit of fame in the public eye (since the early 2000s), but it’s actually been a common activity in Britain since the early 1970s. It’s just that the recent uptick in how the internet is used to help spread word of this kind of hobby and interest has helped make it even more popular, and even more commonly known.
It allows people to go sleep with strangers, or to take their honey and let someone watch. The activity is sometimes done in the safety of your own car, where you put on a show for others, and is sometimes done in a location where others can join in. It’s important to ensure that you know ahead of time which you want to try out, so there are no slip ups or misunderstandings.
Where can you go dogging?
Car parks with wooded areas nearby are some of the most common places for dogging, but you can get online and find forums that have specific locations of popular dogging spots near you without much of a fuss these days. The internet has really helped make dogging parks more accessible, and more easily located!
The big thing when you go dogging is to make sure that it isn’t anywhere near a school zone, or popular hang outs for people who are under aged. You should also familiarize yourself with the area before you go for an actual dogging session, that way there’s no risk of you getting lost. Make sure to identify where you can stop and clean up afterwards, and where you can get yourself something to drink once you’ve finished with your fun. There are 1000s of popular dogging spots across the UK, some are well hidden and are excpeted, some are very close to built up areas and have been “stung” by the authorities, be careful where you choose!

How can you be safe when you’re dogging?
Safety when you’re out doing something like dogging is something that you need to take into account. Make sure that someone knows you’ve gone out and when you’re planning on being back, even if you don’t share all the dirty details with them. You should also look into the dogging park ahead of time, and make sure that it’s in an area you’re going to be comfortable visiting – you don’t want to get arrested because it’s too close to a school, or somewhere else that might be prime cop calling material.
Make sure that you don’t cause any damage to private property, or else you could get fined, and keep an eye on your surroundings. You should drive to the area a few times before going to the dogging park itself, figuring out where you’re going to park, and making sure that you know the roads nearby in case you need to make a quick escape somewhere.
It’s also a good idea to look into how to signal to other doggers that you’re looking for someone to watch you versus looking for someone to join in. Not knowing the right signals could result in some seriously uncomfortable and unwanted situations! So there is a bit of reading that should be done ahead of time – but the same could be said for pretty much any kink out there. A flashing of the headlights is normally a sign fordogging, whilst the car is parked.
Don’t just jump in blind. Make sure that you know what you’re getting involved in first!
People go dogging for the thrill of it, the excitement that comes with sleeping with a stranger, hooking up in a public location, and not having any strings attached to it; or just simply being watched. You’re going to find yourself in a situation that sets those alarm bells ringing, adding an extra layer of risk to your favorite past time. Like every kink, it’s not fit for everyone – but to those who are looking for an itch to be scratched, visiting a dogging park might be the best idea that you’ve got.
It lets you sleep around outside, lets you hookup without any preconceived notions as to what’s going to happen next, and gives you a chance to be watched during your most intimate moment. While these might not be appealing to everyone, there’s a large amount of people who are looking for exactly that to happen!
Be respectful! Why should you clean up after dogging?
You need to clean up after dogging because if you start leaving used condoms around, then the authorities are going to be clued in on where people have started dogging frequently – which means more patrols in the area, a bigger risk to those taking part in the activity, and more of a challenge that needs to be worked around.
Cleaning up after yourself also helps prevent permanent damage being doled out to the property that you’re on, something that you want to make sure you stay aware of in case you do get spotted out there. You don’t want to be fined for damaging a fence or anything like that, so keep your spot cleaned up.
Not to mention the fact that it’s just common courtesy. No one wants to clean up your spend! Make sure that’s done before you take off, leaving the area clean and nice looking for the next couple to come along.
Yes! Dogging is a great way for single women to get some action on the side without having to worry about commitment. Sometimes, the appeal of having a stranger use you is the only that can scratch that itch – and dogging is a good way to let it happen in a mostly safe area. Some single women will also bring a trusted male friend, of an unromantic nature, out with them so they don’t have to go alone.
Yes, again! Dogging is a great way for couples to get a third party in the mix. It’s not at all uncommon for a couple to go to a dogging park just so someone can watch them go at it. It’s also a common activity for those who are interested in cuckholding, as it gives them a chance to watch someone else have fun with their partners.
Yes! This activity is for single men, just like it’s for single women! It lets you have a chance to sleep around without needing to worry about hooking up at the bar; that means they can skip the chatter, don’t have to put out for a drink, and can still have a bit of fun before heading back home for the night, without ever having to worry about being asked for their number. In fact, asking for numbers is a huge no go in the dogging scene! Anonymity is the key for a fun time out at the dogging park!

Is there a gay dogging scene?
Yes, there is! Though it’s a little trickier to locate a gay dogging scene, often called cottaging, the implementation of the internet can easily help you locate which parks are most popular among the gay cottagers, so you know where you should be going, and where you’re more likely to find a hookup with someone of the opposite sex.
What are the top 5 dogging saftey tips?
As you might have imagined, dogging is an activity that is tons of fun but does need a little bit of extra safety advice tossed out in regards to it. We’re going to give you our top five dogging safety tips, to make sure that your dogging experience is as fun and stress free as possible.
One. Make sure that someone knows when you’re going to come home. They don’t need to know what you’re doing in detail, just mention that you’ll be back in a few hours – this way, they’re going to be on alert if you don’t come back when you’re supposed to.
Two. Always bring your own condoms. While a lot of people will pocket condoms and pass them out at dogging parks, you don’t want to use them. You never know if they’ve been tampered with, after all! Bringing your own is the best way to ensure that they’re exactly as protective as they’re meant to be.
Three. This one goes hand in hand with the tip before it. Don’t just bring your own condoms… Make sure that you always use them. It can be tempted to add that extra bit of thrill to your time at the dogging park, but you need to be aware of the fact that you don’t know any of these people. You don’t know what they might have, and you don’t want to risk catching it!
Four. Pick a fake name and stick with it. You don’t want to let anyone you go dogging with know your real name, where you live, what you do for a living, or anything that could allow them to access you on public media or in a social situation that you want to keep separated from your private bedroom life. Most people are going to be respectful because they want the same amount of privacy given to them, but you have to always be ready to keep your real self secret from any creeps you might end up meeting.
Five. When you finish with your dogging session, don’t just go straight home. You’re going to want to drive around for a bit, maybe stopping at a store and maybe getting something to eat, to ensure that no one is following you back to your house.
Some of these rules might seem a little bit on the scary side, but you should always be safe instead of sorry! Keep these safety tips in mind, and go have fun!
