Updated: Aug 2, 2021
he pet play lifestyle is full of so many voices that make it unique and vibrant. To showcase this, every month we will be shining the spotlight on a particular human animal or Handler in our community. Let's hear what makes every pet player special!
This January, we chatted with a special fox, whose joyful and infectious personality lights up the room at every mosh he attends. He's also the current Mr. SoCal Leather! Introducing...
Please introduce yourself and how you identify in pet play.
Hello I’m Romyn (pet name pending), and I am a playful fox!
How did you first get into pet play?
I first got introduced to pet play through my best friend, Pup Icarus. We would go to a lot of moshes together and through that, I discovered my pet play identity.
What gets you into your fox headspace?
Putting on my hood and fox tail help me get into head space a lot. And cuddles. Ooh, and head scratches. People with long nails scratching my head is the best!
(Fun fact, Romyn was the winner of our first Wruff Stuff sponsored hood giveaway in 2019! Isn't the hood he chose perfect?!)
What are your favorite toys and treats?
Sweet and salties are my favorite treats. Scooby snacks and beef jerky come to mind. Ooh and cheez-it’s! I could eat a box ! 😸
I like anything bouncy or things that have fun textures! I also do love the occasional stuffy.
How, if at all, does your identity with the leather community interact with your pet play identity?
I feel like a lot of my leather journey started when I was going to pet moshes and pup nights. So for me they’ve really always been connected.
What hopes do you have for the leather puppy/pet community in the future?
I hope that we can create a community that is really accessible and that addresses the inequalities and injustices of the world at large through love and healing. I would love to see a community that lifts up and serves the most disenfranchised among us.
What do you love most about pet play?
I love the fact that I can let go of the stress and anxieties of everyday hooman life. It’s a time I can just let my playful and primal side out.
