mature datingHistory of Dogging

There are a lot of myths and facts surrounding the history of Dogging particularly in the UK. The origin of this lifestyle is intriguing, with a lot of people curious about how it all started. Several dogging adults from different countries across the globe have claimed that it started in their region and that their grandparents and even great-grandparents have enjoyed having sex outdoor. This might not be too far from the truth, considering that the act of swapping already took place in the 17th century, with alchemists temporarily trading their spouses in Europe.

One of the popular histories of dogging shares some similarities with the swapping of wives story, illustrated in the book, The Lifestyle by Terry Gould. The concept of swinging began in the US among the Army Air Force pilots and their wives during the Second World War. The high rate of mortality for pilots made pilots feel the need to take care of all the wives as their own. Addressing such needs included looking after the sexual needs of new widows.

History has also showed that soldiers played a significant role in the dogging phenomenon. The mandatory national service for men meant that a huge number of young horny soldiers were away from their loved ones. In a bid to satisfy their sexual desire, the men would spy on their fellow soldiers and their girlfriends hooking up. Fortunately for the spectators, the actors did not mind their fellow soldiers seeing them getting it on.

Another side of the story as to the emergence of dogging explains that act refers to single men who pretended to be “walking the dog”. These men were actually said to be spying on couples making out at different locations such as cars at rural parks, superstore parking lots, and lover's lanes. When questioned by law enforcement officers, the spies replied that they were just walking their dogs.

Dogging in the United Kingdom is not a new trend, with many adults admitting to knowing about this activity and actually taking part in it for a very long period of time. The public sex madness has transformed from being an underground movement into a mainstream culture, with the media playing a significant part in the popularity.

Over a decade ago, precisely in September 2003, the BBC had a report on this lifestyle, citing the Internet and text messaging as very common methods of organizing meetings. In the same year, the Sunday Herald also wrote, “The term dogging originated in the early 1970s to describe men who spied on couples having sex outdoors – these men would 'dog' the couples' every move and watch them.” The lifestyle got even more attention when one of Britain’s most famous athletes, Stan Collymore, admitted to attending several dogging meets. This led to the tabloid frenzy that seems to have continued till date.

While there are several angles to the history of dogging not only in the United Kingdom but across the globe, the fact that the digital and traditional media played a significant role in its popularity is a fact that cannot be denied.
