- Sexual roleplay
Sexual roleplay is an erotic form of roleplay: it is a sexual behaviour where two or more people act out
roles in a sexual fantasy. How seriously this is taken depends on the people involved, and the scenario may be anywhere from simple and makeshift to detailed and elaborate, complete with costumes and a script. Nearly any role could become the base material for an erotic experience, and there is no limit to what objects an individual could consider sexual.
The popularity of the
internethas also allowed for online sexual encounters, known as cybersex, which may involve roleplay.
Many of the most common sexual roleplays involve a power differential and form part of the
dominance and submissionaspect of BDSM. Roles can be general designations of power position, or very specific, detailed fantasies. Some people, such as those living the Goreanlifestyle make use of an entire imaginary world. The controlling player is often called the top or dominant while the controlled individual is called the bottom or submissive. Sexologist Gloria Bramelists a number of types of scenario:-Brame G. (2001) "Come Hither! A Commonsense Guide to Kinky Sex", Fusion Press, London, page 140-148.]
*Age-play where one player takes the role of an adult and the other a child.
*Animal-play where the bottom is treated as a non-human animal such as a dog or pony.
*Torturer/Captive prisoner where the top is a captor who abuses the bottom.
*Caught and punished where the bottom is "caught" doing something wrong.
*Authority figure/Misbehaving Adult where an authority figure threatens the bottom with exposure of a secret.
*Gender-play where one or more players take on roles of the opposite sex.
Goddessworship where a woman is seen as a pagan deity.
*Hospital fantasies involving doctors, nurses and patients.
*Owner/Inanimate object such as the bottom being
