Brighton Dogging

This is it boys and girls, THE Virgins account we have all been waiting for. All sniggering aside, dogging is a hobby for the curious and coy alike. Our virgin navigates the unspoken language of the remote lookout point.

Nick Coquet has been to the beach loads of times, but he's always kept his pants on. Not today...
