Pupperotica: Foreplay

If you’ve ever wondered what your favourite Sesame Street characters would look like with nipple tassels look no further – Pupperotica: Foreplay is the FRINGE WORLD production for you.

Pupperotica is the right amount of ‘heat’ in a FRINGE WORLD show – spicy but not cringeworthy. So, if you’re looking for something cheeky but mostly tasteful look no further.

The show is the perfect display of fan-fiction-esque erotica done right and is a must-see for audiences with a literary themed kink.

The myriad of personalities presented to the audience each take us down a rabbit hole of R-rated narrative with (usually) ‘happy endings’.

The narratives themselves are, despite their topic, beautifully written. Each moment and movement painted so perfectly it’s difficult to un-paint the imagery built up in your imagination.

Some of the tales suffer from some self-indulgence and go on a few minutes longer than required to hit the punchline.

Pupperotica tries its hand at audience work too but for all the build-up and time taken for the audience to shout out their suggestions, the end product is rushed over.

Layla is the true star the show and can’t put a foot wrong. The undoubted highlight of the show is her closing piece where she sings about a topic all us ladies are painfully familiar with – you’ll have to buy a ticket to find out just what – but the end result is tears of laughter.

Pupperotica is a third date type of show but I wouldn’t meet a new tinder date there. Laughing over a dominatrix grandmother puppet might break the ice but it’s hard to come back from.
