Do you ever feel silly when it comes to role playing? Perhaps it’s because you don’t have training in acting or improv. Maybe you think the typical scenarios are cliché.
Think back to when you were a kid. Was it really that hard to let your imagination run wild or pretend that you were another person?
What if your partner was “another person”? That could get interesting.
Maybe all you need are the right costumes, props, treatments and maybe even a soundtrack? A night of role playing could lead to your most memorable Valentine’s Day ever.
Be the boss Take the routine out of the old boss and secretary routine with a lady boss. Tell your partner to bring home dinner because you’ll be working late. Dictate some erotic poetry. Demand a foot rub – and make sure that he completes the job on other parts of your body. Take off his tie and take charge with some teasing bondage fun. And what man would quit on a boss who’s wearing a pinstripe vest paired with a garter belt and stockings?
Cute as a bunny Every time I think of Playboy bunnies, I think of their heyday in the 1960’s. Be the ever cheerful cocktail hostess by serving and sharing vintage Rob Roys or Dirty Martinis. (Do I hear Sean Connery as James Bond saying, “Shaken, not stirred”?) Dim the lights and turn up the volume on sexy 60’s songs like Bill Withers’ Use Me, Frank Sinatra’s Fly Me to the Moon, or Eartha Kit’s C’est si Bon. Better yet, perform a slow, sultry dance or strip tease to those songs while wearing a Bunny Babe mesh halter teddy – with the ears, of course. It will all definitely lead to fucking like … well, you know.
Don’t just dream of Jeanie; be a genie Throw some pillows on the floor, light some candles, and feed each other a Middle Eastern finger food feast of hummus, baba gannoush and grape leaves. If you don’t have a community center nearby that has a belly dancing class, check out this YouTube video to learn some easy-to-learn moves. Of course you can’t pull off a belly dance (or dirty dancing) unless you’re wearing the right garb like a sheer purple mesh skirt and a gold coin trim bra (Yes! They do make gorgeous role playing costumes in plus sizes!) or a short turquoise ensemble with a veiled head piece.
Oh, about those candles … make sure at least one of them is a Kama Sutra Mediterranean Almond Massage Candle. It smells appropriately delicious for the mood and the melted wax doubles as a massage oil that feels and smells wonderful on both men and women.
Maid me dirty Let’s be honest, the French maid isn’t going to get much housework done wearing a sexy uniform, but it’s a sure bet that she knows how to work a feather duster all over her lover’s body or a spatula or wooden spoon on her partner’s behind. Or maybe she can whip up a no-cooking-required hot chocolate bubble bath. At least two things will get clean in all that dirty fun.
Nurse him back to a healthy sex life Sex is a vigorous activity and a physical exam is needed. There’s no man that will put off an “appointment” with a nurse wearing an officially sexy uniform. Put the “patient” at ease with a “therapeutic” massage with a flavored, scented, or warming massage oil. Make sure that he’s in proper physical shape by giving him giving him thorough penis and anal exam before giving him a “stress test.” Just make sure that you don’t forget the lube!
