If you have never tried role-playing before, it’s certainly normal to feel hesitant and even a little embarrassed. But don’t let those fears stop you from exploring your desires!
To get started, talk to your partner about what types of roles you both want to explore. Simply having this conversation can be very erotic and sensual, so this makes it a great discussion to have on date night while you are sharing a drink or while you are lying in bed and looking for inspiration. Some popular scenarios include: boss/secretary, superhero/damsel in distress, nurse/patient, schoolteacher/student, massage therapist/client, and the ever-popular French-maid scenario. These are good roles to get you started because it’s likely that you both know the general character ideas and you won’t get lost along the way.
You can take it further by going online or to a local sex shop to explore all the options. Turn it into a sexy date-night activity by switching turns when it comes to choosing your personas for the night.
For example, he can stop by the sex shop after work and pick out the costume he is dying for you to wear, or you can go online and order a sexy couples’ costume in time for your upcoming date night. You don’t have to spend a lot of money either. Get creative and use things you already have in the house, such as a kitchen apron (wear nothing underneath and go as a sexy chef) or cutoff jeans (wear a tight flannel shirt with your bra exposed and be a sexy cowgirl). Take advantage of seasonal sales by shopping right after Halloween or keeping your eye out for online coupons and stocking up ahead of time. Make sure to have a few staples handy (glasses for a sexy schoolteacher, police hat for a sexy cop, crop/whip for a dominatrix), and then you can mix and match your lingerie as you see fit.
For example, if you want to dress up as a sexy dominatrix, you can clad yourself in a black dress you already own and then pair it with sexy leather boots. Complete the outfit with props like handcuffs or even a little riding crop. Be creative and have fun. Men can get into the act by dressing up as a policeman who agrees to not give you a ticket in exchange for a sexual favor. Or, he can dress up as a Marine or Army man, and you can be his sexy and obliging prisoner of war. Store your costumes and props in a sexy play-chest (with a lock, of course) inside your closet.
Remember, when it comes to role-playing, the sky is the limit!
