The History of Dogging

When we look at the history of Dogging in the UK there are some facts and a lot of myths. The origin of this lifestyle is very intriguing for a lot of adults and they are very curious of where it all started. There are also a lot of mature dogging adults from different countries that claim that this activity started in their area and that their parents, grandparents and even great grandparents enjoyed outdoor sex. This fact could be true if we consider that swapping already took place in the 17th century when alchemists in Europe temporary traded their spouses.

One of the known histories of dogging is very similar to the story of wife swapping as explained in the book The Lifestyle by Terry Gould. Swinging began among United States Army Air Force pilots and their wives during World War II. There was a close bond between pilots and with the mortality rate so high for pilots the husband felt implicated to take care of all the wives as their own. This included looking after the new widows’ sexual needs

Just like with swinging with have soldiers to thank for the dogging phenomenon. When men were forced to sign up for national service, this left a huge number of young horny soldiers who were away from their loved ones. To satisfy their sexual needs they would spy on their fellow soldiers and their girlfriends getting it on. Their fellow soldiers didn't mind putting a show up for them because they never knew when they would also have to get their thrills from being voyagers.

Another tale about the history of dogging explains that this activity refers to single men who pretended they were “walking the dog”. In actual fact they were spying on couples making out in cars at rural parks, lover's lanes and superstore parking lots. When the rangers or police officers asked these guys what they were doing walking around during the night, they explained just walking their dogs.

UK dogging is definitely not a new trend and many adults will admit that they've known about this sexual activity and taken part in it for a very long time. The public sex craze has transformed from and underground movement into mainstream culture and we have the media to blame for this.

In September 2003, the BBC reported on this new lifestyle and they cited the Internet and text messaging as very common ways of organizing meetings.

When soccer player Stan Collymore, one of Britain’s most famous athletes admitted in 2004 that the attended numerous dogging meets, the mainstream interest grew and a tabloid frenzy started.
