This article provides an insight into the sexual world of ‘dogging’; that of anonymous sex between men, and between men and women, usually carried out in car parks. Drawing upon interviews with 12 men who engage in dogging behaviours, this article provides insights into the micro-negotiations of the dogging encounter and men’s masculine subjectivities. It argues that masculinity may have limited analytical purchase in the dogging encounter. Instead, it suggests that dogging provides a space for desubjectification where men’s subjectivities are configured in gendered ways that are not dependent on conventional models of masculinity.
