News reaches us that sex hungry mature men and women aged 50 plus are descending on Croydon to enjoy regular outdoor dogging sessions.
Two car parks in Shirley Hills Road outside the Royal Garden Restaurant and Karaoke Bar are being used by the randy senior citizens.
PC Barry Swift told the Croydon Guardian “Both car parks are being used. The people who are coming in [to] take part in sexual activities are not just youngsters – we are looking at pensioners, which is quite surprising.”
No one seems to know what is behind the influx of these mature lotharios to Croydon, which is ranked as one of the top UK dogging spots.
This was confirmed by a local dogger called Nigel who told us that this really is one of the best dogging sites in Surrey and that people “of a certain age” as he put it do come from miles around to join in the fun. He told us “It is a well known spot, and it has been going on for so long, so there clearly is a demand for such a place. Why not make it a designated dogging area? Put some signs on it to help people form outside the area, who are looking for some action, and also so that people who are not into such things could be warned before entering the car parks.”
PC Barry Swift has policed the area for 15 years and said dogging had been a problem on his patch for as long as he has been on the beat and he told the local paper “If you Google it Croydon comes up as the third best place in the country for dogging.”
He was also quoted as saying “Hopefully we will sort out a day of action and go down there and clean up the woods, trim and cut back the trees. We have been running plain-clothed and uniformed operations in the woods, explaining to people that it is not acceptable and getting the word out and that is what we are going to continue to do once it is cleaned up.”
This story just goes to show that dogging really is for people of all ages.
