Dogging Etiquette and Safety
Safe Sex and Dogging
- Always use condoms. Buy a large box or roll and bring extras to share with whomever shows up.
- Remember that just because someone looks clean, that doesn't mean they may not have an STD.
- If a woman's partner isn't using a condom with her, that's all the more reason you should.
- Lube will make everyone more comfortable. Single-use packets are available and you can hand them out with condoms.
- For women, take things slow and know your limits. Don't be shy about telling a bloke to back off if he goes too far.
- For couples, talk to your partner ahead of time about what you plan to do and what the ground rules will be. Have a signal or safe word to give each other if you need to end the scene.
- Use caution and common sense when meeting strangers on the Internet. Don't give out any personal information.
- Arrange meetings in locales that are away from the eyes of the public, but not so far out of the way that you can't get aid quickly if you need it.
- Be familiar with the meeting location. Make sure there are at least two exits from the area and know where they are.
- Protect your identity and privacy by adopting a "swinging name" and creating an alternate persona for dogging.
- Females should always bring a male partner or companion to a dogging meet. Make sure it's someone you trust to protect your interests.
- Avoid getting ambushed or mobbed. Don't announce the exact time and place of a dogging meet on an online bulletin board or forum. Broadcast your interest, then have individuals contact you for specifics on where and when.
- Steer clear of seedy areas where activities like prostitution or drug dealing may be taking place.
- Secure your valuables (cell phone, wallet, handbag, etc.) in the glove box or lock them up in the boot while you're occupied. Keep your car keys on your person at all times.
- When leaving, drive around a bit or stop for a bite on the way home to make sure you're not being followed.
