101 Advice on Dresses & Costumes for Role Play

Bodyjoys’ beginner’s guide to role play dresses and costumes

Ever fantasised about being someone else in a sexual encounter? A motorist seducing a policeman to get out of a speeding ticket? Or a pilot having fun in the cockpit with a board crew member while the plane is on auto-pilot? We’ve all been there…

Through role play, couples can develop a closer bond, and living out mutual fantasies can make sex more intimate and fulfilling. On the other hand, it can feel intimidating to talk about role play with your partner if it is something new to your relationship.

Interested in the idea of erotic role play? Okay then, let’s get started.

How does role play work?

In role play, you and your partner take on the persona of someone else during a sexual encounter, with the aim of acting out and enjoying your fantasies and using your imagination and creativity to enhance sexual pleasure. For example, you might plan out a situation in which a plumber comes to repair the dishwasher and the home-alone housewife seduces him (or her, or vice-versa).

Role play can take place whenever and wherever you fancy. It may be very simple, or more complex, incorporating costumes or toys – your imagination is the only limit. Some of the role play accessories we’ll cover later in this guide include:

Why people love role playing

The simplest answer is because it’s fun. Bedroom fantasies and desires are about sensation, seduction, power and submission (consensually so, of course). Role play is an exciting way to act out saucy dreams and flirt with your fantasies and desires. People enjoy it for the most varied reasons:

  • To have fun with your partner, starring as different characters
  • To step outside of your daily routines and rules
  • To overcome inhibitions and to live out sexual fantasies
  • To engage in seduction and power play
  • To explore kinks that you haven’t been aware of before

Try to free yourself from the conventions that apply outside the bedroom. Role-playing desires and fantasies often contradict our roles and beliefs in daily life. For example, you may want to be a naughty nurse or a call boy in the bedroom – or another role very different to your real-life interests.

How to tell my partner about my role play fantasies?

As always, the first thing to do when you want to explore a new realm of sexual pleasure, is communicate with your partner. Find out whether there is mutual appetite for the adventure and whether you are on the same page in terms of expectations.

As some may feel insecure and awkward when confronting their partner with role-playing, it could be easier to bring up the topic outside of sexual scenarios. This gives the other partner time to think about it without feeling pressured to do something immediately.

You could test the water by asking something like, “do you find uniforms a turn-on? Did you ever fantasise about seducing a police officer?” and develop the conversation from there. It doesn’t have to feel awkward. It is essential that neither of you feels ashamed or judged when discussing sexual desires.

Set some rules before you get going

Before diving into role play, set yourself some boundaries within which you feel comfortable to play. Consenting to role play doesn’t mean that everything is acceptable. Having clarity on that front makes the play enjoyable and free of misunderstandings. It might also be a good idea to establish a safe word so both of you know if the other needs to stop.
