PUP follows two out, gay, Christian leathermen - Master Skip and Pup Tim - as they prepare to compete in The Second International Puppy Contest (IPC), a leather title contest for human canines and their handlers. The documentary is the first to introduce puppy play - a fetish in which a human expresses the attributes of a canine, most often in relation to another human taking the position of pup handler, owner, trainer, etc. Warm, affectionate, and funny, the film reveals a rarely seen world. We follow Master Skip and Pup Tim through the IPC veterinary exam, where Tim is examined by the panel of judges in a private room, and then through the public portion of the contest, where the two perform before the judges and a large audience.

I laughed and found myself seeing a new side of life
Pup Tim is hot, and so is his Master. I wanted the film to go longer, because I began to see these two have a much deeper story, outside of the relationship. It was nice to see that there are people in church that don't accept the demonization of sex that I experienced as a child, and that they somehow make that work, without leaving the church. The contest part was interesting, because it appeared that they were having fun, more than competing. Even the judges laughed, without being rude. I was surprised by the open way they spoke, even when it did not come out perfect.
This is an important and healing film, and really, it should be longer. Will there be a follow-up, so we know how and what they are doing today? The documentarian should consider more, a lot more.
