Animal roleplay is a form of roleplay where at least one participant plays the part of a non-human animal. As with most forms of roleplay, its uses include play and psychodrama.
Animal roleplay may also be found in BDSM contexts, where an individual may take part in a dominant/submissive relationship by being treated as an animal. The activity is often referred to as petplay. However, not all types of animal roleplay within BDSM are petplay and not all petplay in BDSM involves roleplaying as an animal; some can be referred to as primal play and is not related or accepted by the furry fandom.

Wikipedia mentions that the earliest artworks found were done by John Willie. There are however earlier artworks that can be found on my website. One of the artists that stand out was Carlo (who perhaps was an inspiration for John Willie). Within animal roleplay one can find specific forms like Doggyplay or Ponyplay. For now I will include these themes here.
