The most important thing to remember when role playing is that you're in control. You can switch your roles back and forth, explore different scenarios or even stop whenever you want without any judgment from you or your partner. It's all about having fun! 

Now let's dive into some steps to follow for the best role-play experience! 

Role-Play for Couples: Tips and Guidelines for the Best Experience


Benefits of Role Play

Sex is a journey and sex in a healthy relationship is built on trust, on openness, and creativity, but over time it can get stale or uninteresting. 

Imagine - you are having sex with the same person over and over again for years. So, it is not difficult to see the sex becoming boring, if don't change anything in your sexual routine, and don't try out new things.

And role play gives you the opportunity not to only try out new things, but to try them as new personas! In role play you can be whatever you want with whomever you want, and to do it however you want it!

Get comfortable and set boundaries

First and foremost, you want to make sure that both of you are comfortable with it. This should be a mutual decision as role-playing is something quite intimate and personal.


It's not just about pretending; for a brief time, you both will actually become someone else, so you both need to feel safe enough before starting the game itself. 


We recommend role-playing for couples who have been dating or married for at least six months because those are usually the relationships where there is already some level of comfort between them even outside bedroom activities! 

If one party feels out of their element then things can get awkward very fast which may cause more harm than good in the end. So, please take your time talking about this together if you're thinking about trying new things like role-playing!

Learn what is for you

You also need to decide what kind of role-playing you want to do. There are many different types and scenarios that can be played out here, so take your time deciding which one is best for both parties involved. 

For example, if one partner loves mystery novels then the other could live out mystery sexual fantasies, and dress up as a detective or police officer while they're trying to solve various crimes in town during their date night together! 

If simply getting into another persona isn't quite enough for them there's always cosplay where you can play someone fictional like Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad or Deadpool from Marvel comics, or James Bond, or even someone you completely made up yourself – the only limit here is your imagination. 

You can add to the excitement by wearing a full-on costume (there are plenty of options to choose from either it is in an adult store, or in the case of cosplay – in specialty hobby stores).

Or, if you would like to start slowly, maybe something simpler will work better such as dressing up as a schoolgirl and teacher while pretending to go back to high school again. 

It is all up to you, and the best part – next time you can try something completely different.

The aggressiveness from him has made their chemistry so intense that even without touching any part except through words-the atmosphere becomes too much for them not to break down under pressure.

Or The doctor and his sexy nurse were getting it on in the examination room. The patient was just outside, waiting for them to finish so that he could get back home early from work!

3 Simple Sexy Scenario Ideas

In the world of role play there are millions of sexy scenarios you can play out, and before you try out the Naughty Scenarios, you can have a go with these simple sex scenes.

Dominant Partner

When you are in a healthy relationship, usually both partners are respected and no one is bossed around, but when it comes to role playing, then you can live out your inner need to be a control freak, or the submissive one. 

To make it more interesting you can add to the fantasy some authority figure elements. Maybe one is a boss in a large corporation, while the other is the secretary.

Mile High Club

Having sex in an airplane and joining the mile-high club is a world-wide fantasy, but to actually pull it off in an actual airplane can get you in real trouble! But in role-play you can do it without any problems.

On top of that why not sprinkle your role play idea with some additional extras. Maybe you are a passenger who is seduced by the flight attendant or the pilot.

One Night Stand

This is a relatively simple role play idea that can go a long way. Imagine you are complete strangers (for added bonus - meet up in a bar), seduce each other, and then have mind blowing one night stand!

Religious Play

For some this might be a complete no-go, and that is OK. But due to its mysticism and a sense of wrong, for some the religious role play idea can be massive turn on.

There are several personas you can play out. Maybe you are a nun who wishes to experience sex for the first time. Or, you can be a priest seduced by a rebellious student in a religious school who wishes to be as naught as possible as a way of protest

Pool Boy / Pool Girl

In this sex scene you can be an owner of a mansion who can't resist the desire to seduce his/her pool boy/girl. This is another classic fantasy that can include several other elements, like power play and age play. 

Take Role Play Seriously and Stay in Character

Now that all the preliminaries are out of the way let's move on to some tips for having a great time while role-playing! One of the most important things during an erotic role play is to stay in character, especially when things get intimate. 

Your characters might do things slightly differently than your true self – which is a good thing (up to a limit, of course), so keeping your partner in character will only add to the experience and make it more enjoyable for everyone involved. Sometimes people forget this and it can kill the mood.

If you’ve never done anything like this before, don't be afraid to start slow. Just talk through the different personalities your character could have and then see how they act in certain situations while still being yourself!

If that feels right take it up another notch by gentle touching or kissing – whatever suits them best as long as both partners can relax into their sexy moods together.

But Don't Take Role Play too Seriously

Being said to take it seriously, don't go overboard with it. Balance is the key.

Remember that you are living out your sex fantasy to have fun, so try to keep in character, but keep it light. 

If you don't feel comfortable with something - don't do it, or slowly ease into it by trying it out step by step. And if you have a laugh from time to time - that is a good thing.

Explore Role Play and Bond Together

What is the best way to get in touch with your partner and create amazing moments together? Well, playing the part of someone else is definitely among one of those experiences? 

Role Play is an excellent method for exploring different personalities, learning about each other's thoughts and feelings that may be difficult or embarrassing otherwise. 

When you take on another personality it becomes easier to unwind not just because it’s fun but also allows people to get a new persona - at least for a while. And people who aren't comfortable unleashing their sexual fantasies in real life, can let their persona take the wheel.

One thing that's very important to keep in mind is that even though some role-play scenarios can include hurting the character in some way (for example a cheating fantasy), but it should never be used as a way to manipulate or hurt your partner in real life. 

If something starts to feel uncomfortable then take a step back, talk about it and figure out what's going on. Role play should always be fun and safe – for both of you!

Add to the excitement by having props

When you are just starting out, make sure to keep it simple, but when you start feeling more comfortable and what to take your role play experience to the next level, make sure to have some fun props and costumes on hand! 

Whether it's a few costumes, different types of lingerie, or just some simple sex toys like blindfolds and handcuffs you can really add to the experience. Just be careful not to overdo it otherwise things might start feeling silly instead of sexy. Use the props that fit your particular scenario.

Safe words and pausing the role play

Role playing by definition include pretending, trying new things and a change of power dynamics, so it is possible something will go wrong, so it is essential to have a fail-safe in place.

Every new sexual experience should have a safe word, and role-play is definitely among them. Playing a new scenario you will feel into the skin of different personas, sometimes your partner might confuse you wanting to stop with you just pretending to get out of it, so a safe word is a must.

We recommend choosing something easy to remember and also silly that would almost never fit well into a regular situation – so when you need to use it, you know that the safe word was used. Some examples would be “Snow is blue”, “the milk is outside”, “fast turtle”. You would agree that they all sound ridiculous, right and no one would use them in a normal sentence? And, that is exactly the point.


Pausing the Experience

When it comes to pausing the role-play, don’t just jump up from the bed or couch because that might make things pretty awkward between everyone. Instead, we recommend saying the safe word and then explaining that you need to take a break.

Maybe you need to have a glass of water, or a bathroom break, so by pausing the role play if you can avoid having some awkwardness. Also, in case you wish to change some rules of your role-play, pausing it is a great way to do it.

Remember - don’t be afraid to say you aren't comfortable with something. This is a safe environment and being open about your boundaries will help things go as smoothly as possible for all parties involved!
