Sex on a platter: Role-play
By Mystic Minx
Even Michael Douglas has been known to pull out his Richard Burton impression for Catherine Zeta Jones! And when Hugh Grant went ....Oooh, Mummy!' in the first 'Bridget Jones' film on discovering Bridget's big control knickers, it was indeed a mamamia moment because what he was actually doing was edging towards a bit of fun role play with his new partner. Lots of us teeter on the brink of playing fantasy roles when we make love, but some actively embrace it and...you cannot deny it, but a bit of a role play does add that extra sizzle to your bedroom romp. Some call it escapism, but I say, so what…if it’s fun and it’s ok between you and your partner, you should experiment.
Being able to play out your fantasies together means breaking down a big barrier within a sexual relationship, and can make you feel far closer. After all, you're showing each other aspects of your personality that no one else ever sees. For another thing, many women find that 'playing' someone else allows them to release their alter ego and become far less inhibited.
But getting into role play comfortably can be quite a challenge for a couple. Probably in the first instance you both have to be able to admit to each other the roles that you fancy playing. 'No, I will NOT dress up as a gangster!' he might say indignantly, if you greet him in a moll’s outfit when you open the door on a Friday night! Of course there are ways and means of suggesting role play which aren't doomed to be met with ridicule or refusal. The best way to get her to comply is to test the water with a bit of dirty talking.
Maybe the role suggested hasn’t appealed to your partner, but don’t backtrack. I say, get into the mood and lay it thin, before going overboard. It’s about adding sizzle to your sex life. So if you don’t really fancy bondage, then reach out to the teacher’s pet or the naughty secretary’s role that you’ve been fantasizing about.
Want some role play ideas to get you both going? Here are some of the classics which appear time and again in erotic fiction…
Teacher’s pet: get naughty!
Slip into a fantasy world. You're back at school and about to fulfill the daydreams of your adolescence in the naughtiest of all role-playing games - and give new meaning to the phrase, 'teacher's pet'. Teacher and pupil role-playing games offer endless scope for sexual fun. Once into your chosen character, you can wave goodbye to your inhibitions and let your imagination take you to a world where almost anything is permissible. So lock the bedroom door and prepare for some thrilling and unusual extra-curricular activities. You don’t need any props for your game, just a vivid imagination to act out your fantasies in your mind. Here is one schoolboy fantasy, but there are hundreds more out there just waiting for you to make them happen.
Gangster and moll
Sharp suits, plenty of money and sex appeal – the gangsters of prohibition America had it all. So why not spend a night as Mob King and Moll and enjoy a bedtime romp, gangster style! If the glamour of the era excites you and the films leave you nostalgic for those hard and dangerous times gone by, create your own gangster scenario and spend a night of bliss in a bad guy’s arms. When playing out the fantasy, woo your man by any means possible – you want his money and his body, preferably out of its Italian suit and in your bed! Dress up in something provocative – stockings, a basque or bra and panties – and slip a long robe over the top. If you have a feather boa, wear it. Its downy form will accentuate the smoothness of your skin and it can be used later for all sorts of exciting love games.
