There's more to animal play than 'dress up'

Animal play is also known as pet play and involves a submissive person taking on the role of a particular animal. Most of these roles are pets such as puppies, kittens and ponies but rarer animals can by imitated too. A dominant who looks after a person during animal play is known as an owner or a trainer. They may get their pet to accept treats from their hand, crawl on all fours or wear a lead for example. It all depends on what kind of animal their pet is.

What is animal play?

Animal play is where one or more submissive person takes on the role of an animal to a dominant owner or trainer. When in the role of an animal the submissive loses their human traits and takes on those of their chosen pets. Some will walk on hands and knees, drink and eat out of bowls and wear a collar and leash. Others may pull carriages, wear harnesses and take treats from their owner’s hand. It all depends on which pet role is taken on.

Is animal play just playing 'dress up'?

The simple answer is no. While a person is in their role as a pet, they are thoroughly immersed in this, not just playing dress up. It is very much about submission to their dominant/owner, and for many pets, it is an escape from their stressful human lives.

What are the typical animal play roles?

Most animal play concentrates on domesticated pets. Most often this is puppies and kittens. Puppies are playful but can be trained whereas kitties are more independent and like lots of stroking. Pony play is also popular with the ponies taking on different roles from being ridden to learning certain moves similar to dressage or pulling a carriage.

Is animal play safe?

Animal play is safe as long as the usual BDSM rules are followed around safewords and not leaving a person in bondage for too long. The person who takes on the owner role needs to keep a close eye on their pet/animal to make sure they don’t do something while in role that could hurt them. "

    Age play is increasingly popular in kink circles, and comes in many different forms. The best known is, paradoxically, probably also the rarest; while adult babies and people heavily invested in diaper play certainly do exist and have valid and varied sexual expression, roleplaying a generally childlike demeanour with an authoritative figure is far more common. 'Ageplay' is an umbrella term and it covers a wide variety of kinks and identities; anything that involves roleplaying an age difference between two partners comes under it, including dynamics where one person acts in a cutesy or youthful way without embodying any one specific age.
    Petplay is a common kink, and ponyplay is one of its most widespread forms. The fetish comes primarily from the idea that ponies are controlled, bridled, cared for and ridden; ponyplay is a great way for a submissive to really feel their place and role. Most pony players have a specialised 'pony harness', designed to mimic the harnesses used on actual ponies but adapted specifically for the human anatomy. These harnesses usually include a headpiece, a bit gag and some kind of bridle and reins arrangement; they may also come with a saddle, to allow the submissive to be 'ridden', or something to help attach the harness to a pullable cart.
    Control is sexy, and if you're into domination it can be the sexiest kink of all. For some kinksters, D/s is a lifestyle - but for many people it's simply something fun to play around with in the bedroom, and we're fully supportive of both of those fetish preferences. If dominance is your thing and you consider yourself a dom or a domme, it's vital that you develop an understanding of safewords, negotiations and enthusiastic consent. Once you and your partners are both on the same page, though, the sky's the limit.'s magazine prides itself on its wide range of articles on the subject, so if you're looking for some inspiration you might want to head over there and do some reading up.
