What is Kitten Play?
Kitten play is a type of petplay or animal role play where participants take on the persona of a kitten. This can involve dressing up in kitten-like clothing, such as cat ears, a tail, and paws. It can also include acting like a kitten, such as meowing, purring, and crawling on all fours. Kitten play can be a form of BDSM play, but it can also be non-sexual.
Why Do People Enjoy Kitten Play?
People who enjoy kitten play often find it to be a fun and playful way to explore their sexuality and express themselves. It can also provide a sense of escapism and allow them to take on a different persona for a period of time. For some, it can be a form of stress relief or a way to unwind after a long day. Additionally, kitten play can be a way to explore power dynamics and dominance and submission in a safe and consensual way.
