Following our recent story about how Surrey was named dogging capital of the UK neighbouring Sussex has hit back not wanting to be left out, and the East Grinstead Courier has published details of all the hot dogging spots in and around the town.
The paper is very specific about where doggers can hook up in East Grinstead for some dogging action. Vowels Lane car park, close to Turners Hill, Foresters car park, Forest Row, and Cowdray Forest in woods off Balcombe Road are all mentioned.
The paper writes “Quiet country carparks, picnic spots, leafy lanes and even a cricket pitch are among the locations identified on a list of locations in Sussex where strangers meet for sex – in front of an audience. Known as dogging, the underground practice involves people performing sex acts in cars or in secluded spots while others watch.”
They continue “The activity may fall through a legal loophole because it is not an offence to have sex in public unless it causes outrage to a witness. Participants often tip each other off about popular spots – and now online lists have even been compiled.”
As the paper points out, dogging is not illegal, and it is not illegal to have sex in a public space. It is only a criminal offence if it causes ‘alarm or distress’ to others as this dogging and the law guide explains.
