Nearly seven out of every ten British truckers have tried dogging, one lorry driver claims in a shock new TV documentary to be aired shortly on Channel 4.
Truckers Indulging in Dogging
The Channel 4 show Dogging Tales has lifted the lid on the secretive world of al-fresco dogging meetings – sex between strangers, and the show also explores the psychological and physical lure of what seems to be the latest craze.
One trucker – interviewed anonymously – insists that more than two thirds of the nation’s HGV drivers are at it. He said: “Going by the amount of drivers I know, I would say 70 per cent are into dogging. Most of the people in the haulage business know about dogging because originally it was started with couples and lorry drivers – and this is one of the perks of being a lorry driver. It’s a lonely job out on the road, so when you park up on a dogging site, there’s always someone to talk to.”
“If you’re going somewhere you’re getting free sex, don’t cost you nothing, you’re never gonna see the person again, so don’t matter whether you do a good job or a bad job. What could be better? Obviously that’s gonna be addictive.”
Another man who is featured on the programme regularly goes dogging with his wife and he says she loves being watched.
He explains: “When we go out dogging I feel good in myself that I’m there and supplying that bit of entertainment. I DJ’d for 35 years so I love putting on a little show. I just feel that little bit more important.”
Wife Indulging in Dogging
Another couple explain why they enjoy outdoor liaisons with strangers. A wife admits: “I got bored. I thought I’d try cheating, it just happened to get out of control. I was just cheating with any random person that would show me the attention. I think that’s the reason he proposed we go dogging.”
Her husband adds: “We did it as a last resort to try to spice things up between us.”
The documentary, filmed over ten months, also features a buxom mum who leaves her husband behind to head out seeking sex with strangers.
She says: “I find it hard to think of myself as being sexy because I’m a big girl. But as I’m getting dressed, I can see this sexy, voluptuous, confident woman who is ready to go and have sex with a stranger and they can’t wait to get their hands on me. My husband knows what I’m doing. I always tell him I love him before I go out the door.”
That gives you a feel for the kind of people you may meet dogging – and the show goes out to the general public on Channel 4 on April 4th at 10pm
