So many questions beg for answers in this SillyMike and his human pups saga.
Is it just the Nigerian ‘notice-me’ syndrome?
Is it a fashion statement?
Is he living the human puppy lifestyle with the ladies, wherein he is the handler?
Is he trying to tell us something ?
Is it just an act of bravery and breaking barriers?
Or has the handler gone mad again?
High flying Lagosians try hard to outdo one another in swags and appearance. PrettyMike surely did outshine everyone in class and craze when he stepped out last Saturday to the wedding. I mean, we don’t even know the name of the bride, groom , their parents or other dignitaries.
The human puppy lifestyle is not new. Some humans enjoy being treated like dogs. I learnt it gives them the opportunity to shed off their human personality and take on the carefree attitude of a pup. Puppies like to get lots of attention. Dogs act on instinct rather than rationality. According to Psychology Today, the mind of a dog is roughly equivalent to that of a human child of about two to two and a half years old. The dog also has no emotional capacity for shame, pride, guilt and contempt. Now, convince me these girls/pups do not need some therapy sessions.
The handler, most times is an alpha homosexual. He can double as the master as you’ll get in other BDSM roles. He owns the pups. Here is the confusion; why are PrettyMike’s pups not men? Is he in a wholesome relationship with the girls? How did wholesome even get in there? What can be wholesome about sex with pups? Does he prefer sex with men? PrettyMike , why are you messing with my head? What are you trying to tell us?
I found it particularly sickening that some girls think this is an art, or act of bravery. There is no bravery in being the submissive partner on a leash. BDSM? People who are into BDSM generally prefer the role that fits their own level of agreeableness. Domineering people would seem to prefer the dominant role, while those who are willing to please naturally fit into the submissive, pain receiving, humiliating roles. Why should I be the one spanked, hurt, chained or on leash?
There is the claim of mutual consent. But a sane society should be worried that some girls think it’s okay to be a man’s dog. For money? Then it becomes more worrisome. Are there no other dignifying gigs than puppy play? My thought? It’s a case of mind deprivation, an obvious expression of human degradation and non existing self esteem. These are deep rooted issues and these girls need to be saved from themselves. Nigeria needs more professional psychotherapist because the harvest is indeed much.
Some beautiful boy thinks it’s an act of bravery and breaking barriers. “It’s self expression” he claimed and since self expression is stifled in Nigeria, he had to speak for them from The West. I can’t even chuckle! Where is the bravery in the dog-life? I thought we all concluded in Biology Class that Man is the higher animal. Why go low? Dog? Not even Lion, the king of the jungle?
This ambition to copy everything from The West is brain frying and tiring. So because The West didn’t frown about it, then it must be superior thinking? No, use your OWN head, not Tom’s.
Anyway, for the liberal soul and lovers of all things West, here is a complete kit if you want to get started as a pup.
Hoods/Muzzles (not that cheap mask, please)
Toys (at least something to chase and chew)
Feeding Bowl ( make sure it perfectly fits into your face)
Please , for the pain, play me that Olamide’s track ; “Ibile l’awon eleyi” and increase the volume for those of us at the back. We that are not liberal can at least dance!
