I'm not even sure what this community is called -- human dogs? Pups? They're not exactly furries, but they're definitely in the furry family. I'm also assuming there's an underlying layer of BDSM in the mix -- I always see lots of rubber, vinyl and bondage gear, but I personally have never seen or read real confirmation, until possibly now with the forthcoming documentary, "Secret Life of the Human Pups."
According to an early review by The Guardian, "Secret Life of the Human Pups is a sympathetic look at the world of pup play, a movement that grew out of the BDSM community and has exploded in the last 15 years as the internet made it easier to reach out to likeminded people. While the pup community is a broad church, human pups tend to be male, gay, have an interest in dressing in leather, wear dog-like hoods, enjoy tactile interactions like stomach rubbing or ear tickling, play with toys, eat out of bowls and are often in a relationship with their human “handlers.”
