Safety should be a priority when you’re dogging. Even though you will be with other people who practice the same thing, there are still many hidden dangers involved. Part of the excitement stems from the potential dangers. Here are ways you can keep yourself safe while having fun.
Know the Area
In case something bad was to go down, you need to know how to get out of the area on foot. Plenty of things can happen that would result in you needing to leave your car and just go. Don’t go dogging in areas that you are unfamiliar with.
Let Someone Else Know
Even though dogging is largely an underground activity, you should tell a trusted friend where you will be. They don’t need to know all the details unless you want to share them. This way you know that someone is aware that you are going out. If you are meeting with a specific person, let the friend know who you plan on meeting as well.
What to Take
Other than the normal dogging materials such as condoms, you should have a small emergency pack in case things get out of hand. A flashlight is essential. You can find lights that don’t require batteries. This way you don’t have to worry about it not working when you need it. Also make sure you have a cell phone with a fully charged battery. This will allow you to call for help should you need it. Pepper spray isn’t a bad idea either if you are comfortable handling it.
