“Dogs. We dress them up, we take them out on parade, we lavish them with gifts. For many, that’s not enough and they want to enter the world of dogs themselves. Sure, Puppy Play looks like a kink with the leather and hoods and tails. But it’s a world scene created by men and women, and it’s one that is not about control, but about love and affection. It seeks to show a way to navigate our lives away from the ordinary into the unknown. It may seem silly to wear a tail and ears, but is it any sillier to dress up our dogs in a dress and shoes?” -VO
