Dogging - the unofficial ten commandments

If you're new to dogging, take some
tips from Naughty Wigan Couple.
1 Talk it through
It might sound clinical, but it's a good idea to
talk through exactly what you feel
comfortable with. A first dogging trip
probably won't go exactly to plan, but at least
you are both aware of each other's limitations
Only do as much - or as little - as you feel
comfortable with. You're in charge. If you
enjoy it, you can always go back for more.
It's your night and only you can decide what
you want from it. Think about the kind of fun
you want. Are you looking for someone to
'accidentally' catch you 'in flagrante', or do
you want participation from the doggers?
It's also worth having a signal or password
that only you know - a way of discreetly
telling your partner, 'I've had enough, time to
2 Plan it - or take pot luck...
Since the advent of all the swinging sites on
the internet, a lot of people are now
advertising for meetings. Admittedly this
takes away the 'chance' element that was
part of the early appeal of dogging, but it can
be very useful for the newer couple who may
not know many locations. It also gives you
the opportunity to discuss your likes and
dislikes before the meet, and to set out your
personal limitations. You will find the
smaller, more secluded locations are
generally better for these
arranged meets. You are
less likely to have
to be involved in any little party you have
arranged. Once you have a little more
experience, and have more ideas of places to
go, you will probably find that you don't
always need to place adverts and that you
know the best place to visit - and probably
are familiar with at least half of the cars in
the car park.
3 Location, location, location
It might sound an obvious question, but
consider how well you know the car park you
are visiting. How well do you actually know
the general area? Which part is the best place
to park for easy exit and also to give you a
good view of who is coming and going?
Why not have a 'dummy' run during daylight
hours so you can see what the car park is like,
identify all exits and, most importantly,
you can ensure that you know your way
4 Be prepared
Remember what they used to teach in the
boy scouts (or guides)? Well, it goes for
dogging as well. Have you got your condoms,
wet wipes, disposal bags? It's a good idea to
set up a 'dogging bag', which can contain all
your essentials, along with any toys you may
want to use on the night. It is also a good
idea to make sure that your mobile phone is
fully charged (in case you need to call
anyone). Can you get reception on your
phone from the site?
5 Be ready for a waiting game
If you are going to an 'advertised' car park,
you can pretty much expect that there will be
others around, but these will mainly be single
males rather than other couples. If it is a
quieter car park, be prepared to wait,
sometimes for long periods of time, until a
suitable dogger comes along. It may be worth
taking some good music to listen to
(but don't overdo the car radio and end up
with a flat battery) and something to drink.
Dogging can be a very thirsty experience.
(Remember you've got to drive home - so go
very easy on the alcohol!)
6 Approach with care
On your final approach to the car park,
it's a good idea to lock the car doors, make
sure any valuables are out of sight and turn
off your interior light. On some cars this turns
on automatically when the engine is turned
off and can be mistaken as a signal for the
doggers already there to make their way over
to you before you've even had time to take
off your seatbelt.
7 Pick your parking place
Upon arrival, make your way to your preferred
spot, which hopefully won't already have
been taken. Reverse into the parking space.
Most couples and singles find it safer to
reverse into a parking space rather than drive
in forwards. It means you can see who's
approaching the car, but it also makes it
easier to leave in a hurry if things aren't
going to plan.
8 Know your signals
So you are in the car park, and there are a
couple of polite doggers standing near their
cars, just waiting for you to make a move.
How do you let them know you want them to
come over? There are a number of ways you
can get the attention of others in the car park
and let them know you want them to
approach. One of the most popular ways is to
turn on your interior light. This normally
indicates you want to be watched and
lets the others see who's in the car.
Some couples also flash their
headlights to get attention, or just
open the window and wait for someone
to walk over casually.
9 Set out your rules
Whatever you decide to do, remember that
YOU are in charge. YOU decide how far to go
and what the rules are. However, the doggers
won't know your rules, or your limitations,
unless you tell them. Most doggers won't
attempt to touch or join in unless they are
invited - some only want to watch and will
normally let you know this - but remember
there is always the chancer who may
interpret an open window as an invitation to
stick their arm in and have a feel. Don't be
afraid to tell them exactly what you want and
what they can or can't do.
10 Talk, talk and talk again
It is important when you first start dogging
that you talk through what has happened.
Talk about your feelings - what you liked or
disliked - and make sure you are both happy
with what has happened. Having fun out
dogging is nice, but your relationship with
your partner is paramount.
By ensuring you are both comfortable
with dogging and the limits you have set, you
can deal with any problems, concerns or
doubts before they become issues. Most
importantly, make sure that both of you are
still finding it fun.When it stops being fun -
for either of you - it's time to empty and
hang up that dogging bag!
Gas-Guzzler. . . or Knob-Guzzler
In these days of fanatical eco-friendliness,
as we all bend over backwards to reduce
our carbon footprint for the sake of the
planet,we at SHM were discussing the
reasons for having a great big, roadhogging,
four-wheel-drive off-roadster. Someone
pointed out the obvious virtues of a great
big wagon to transport Samantha and
Tristram to school and take them and
their friends on theme-park outings.
The talk went on - and then, as they used
to say in days gone by, 'the scales fell
from my eyes'. Of course - a big fourwheel-
drive is the perfect dogging wagon.
If you fancy a spot of exhibitionism,
and are inclined to share your fun with
like-minded motorists,why not do it in
the lap of luxury? Why struggle with your
stiletto stuck in the ashtray when you
could fold down all rear seating and really
give it some wellie (taking due care, of
course, to avoid carpet burns)?
So maybe the 4x4 choice is a
conscious statement - 'we dog - and we
do it big-time'. So, next time you can't
park outside your house or squeeze down
a narrow street because of someone's
mega-wagon in the way, don't judge the
owners too harshly - chances are they're
out in their dog-mobile and will soon be
heading off for some fun. They may not
be eco-friendly - but maybe they're
friendly in other ways...
