Deleted Member Posted November 4, 2022 Posted November 4, 2022 I identify as a primal hunter/predator (though I'm still at an exploring/developing state). When I discovered the existence of primal play, I quickly learned that two definitions (or maybe two types) exist. All definitions would describe primals as people who let go of the masks, roles, expectations and inhibitions of everyday life and allow their feelings and desires to flow more freely, sometimes resulting in animalistic behaviours or sounds. But some definitions went a step further and added to this the aspect of taking on the behaviours and/or sounds of one or a few specific animals. On a few occasions, I've been asked what kind of animal I am. To which the answer i none (or at least nothing other than human). To me, primal play is about letting go of inhibitions, and taking on the behavior of a specific animal is for me a form of role-play and as such becomes an act of putting on a mask and creating a framework for how I can/should act. (Maybe that's also why I prefer 'hunter' over 'predator'. The latter sound more like an actual animal) Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to say that one way of being a primal is wrong or right (in fact that's something I'm trying to fight in the kink community). But I would love to hear from my fellow primals: Do you take on the behaviour and/or imitate the sounds of specific animals when you go primal? If you do, what animal(s) and is it the same every time? Also, why do/don't you take on animal traits?
