What Sucks…Sex Between Dogs
Sex can be a beautiful thing. But not with dogs.
I’ve often wondered why it was I always felt uncomfortable upon seeing dogs “do it”. At first, I looked inward. Was it me? Did I have some sort of deeply buried self-loathing, an insecurity with respect to intimacy I was projecting on nature? After much thought, the answer is “No.” I just get uncomfortable witnessing rape.
If I’m the only one with the courage to say it, so be it- dogs have sex in a jarring, disturbing manner. I will no longer sit back and pretend they don’t.
Now, am I calling all dog sex rape? Pretty much.
I know it may be hard to handle for some of you, that at the end of that leash you’re towing around to various dog runs is a rapist, but let’s face it, if you’re dog is part pit-bull, mastiff or rottweiler it’s the product of rape. And by rape I mean, the female dog mating with the above dogs, or any dog above 65 pounds for that matter, pretty much has no choice in the matter.
For many of you out there with the courage to see the truth, it is not news that dogs “do it” without love. Lady and the Tramp is a cartoon folks, there is no Italian dinner, no rolling of a meatball with a snout. In real life, that scene couldn’t be shown in a kid’s movie.
Male dogs are horny animals who I have personally seen go to town on a blanket, couch or leg- with the same concern they’ve gone to town with on a female dog, or a bitch.
Bob Barker was right. Sure, publicly he said he wanted to control the pet population, but privately, come on, is it really that hard to believe he thought dogs do it “gross”?
