What is Dogging

Dogging is a British English slang term for Outdoor Sex acts usually a public or semi-public area while others are watching. Sometimes there are more than 2 participants, often one woman and many males, in a similar way to Gang Bangs. People watching the sexual acts is generally encouraged, those with an interest in Voyeurism and being an Exhibitionist should consider giving this a try. Very often, Dogging sessions are arranged on the internet.

As an activity, Dogging got going in the later part of the 20th century, kicking off in the UK, mostly going on in public car parks and lay-bys, with activity normally going on after dark.

In September 2003 the BBC3 reported on the 'new' dogging craze. They cited the Internet and text messaging as common ways of organising meetings. The original definition of dogging – and which is still a closely related activity – is spying on couples having sex in a car or other public place. There is some evidence on the Internet that the 'craze' has begun to spread to other countries, such as the United States, Canada, Ireland, Australia, Barbados, Brazil, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Poland, Sweden.

Legal Stuff

In the UK, Dogging comes under laws related to Voyeurism, being an Exhibitionist or public displays of sexual behaviour; the Dogging laws are ambiguous. Prosecution is possible for a number of offenses such as section 5 of the Public Order Act 1986, exposure under section 66 of the Sexual Offenses Act 2003 or for the common law offence of outraging public decency. ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) policy is that arrests are a last resort and a more gradual approach should be taken in such circumstances.

Dogging the word

According to the Sunday Herald (UK Newspaper) in 2003, "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." Another theory claimed that dog-walking was the origin of the term; audience members, and indeed participants, could use the ordinary exercise of their pets as cover for their sexual Fetishes.


There's a lot of signals that Doggers can use, one of the most common is flashing their car lights, either the interior or the headlights. This is probably a sign that they're Doggers.
Leaving the internal light on often means 'they wish to be watched'. If they choose to wind down the window, this may mean they want to fondle/be fondled or more.
If they want more, they will verbalise this.
Could we suggest that, you make sure you move your bag/purse/wallet/anything valuable to a safe place like the trunk. Also lock all the doors from the inside, this will stop unwelcome visitors and keep you in control of what goes on.
