Halloween is the perfect time to introduce role-playing into your sexual encounters. Everyone’s already in costume, many of which fall under the “sexy Halloween” umbrella, and wearing a mask seems to almost universally give people permission to act out of character — and into a new one. Whether your fantasy involves a sexy nurse, some serious vampire roleplay, or just a chance to wear your favorite BDSM gear in public, you might want to consider some roleplay this Halloween.
Role-playing is a great way to turn things around with a long-term partner. It makes sense, right? Contrary to popular myth, which would have us all believe that women only want to have sex with people they are in love with, a study found that up to 60% of women are turned on by the idea of sex with a stranger. . When you add the idea that humans may not be made for monogamy, it only makes sense that role-playing is a popular movement in the bedroom.
But role-playing isn’t just for couples, of course. Naughty people know that “game nights” aren’t child’s play, but rather spaces where like-minded people can indulge each other — couples or singles — often while playing different roles. BDSM often involves some kind of roleplaying, although it is as simple as one person acting much more dominant than they are in their daily life or the other acting much more submissive.
So if you’re interested in trying some role-play this Halloween, consider one of these couple costume options. Oh, and for what it’s worth, none of this has to be gender specific: the beauty of roleplaying is that any gender can play any role. And you could also definitely do any of them even if you’re single. All that matters is your fantasy.
It’s a little scary, sure, but there’s a difference between fantasy and real life. If you’re both of age and it turns you on, go for it!
2. 50 shades of gray
Easy costumes and easy roles to play if you’re new to this kind of game. Don’t forget to talk about your limits (and respect those limits) beforehand, contrary to the story.
McSteamy, anyone? Or sexy nurse? Or just a fun boss/employee dynamic? The possibilities are limitless.
4. Oliva Pope/President Fitzgerald
Because who is not it do you want to get it on how these two do it?
5. Little Red Riding Hood/Big Bad Wolf
Being “caught up” by a stranger is extremely common fantasy for women. And there’s just something so delicious about a big furry wolf, don’t you think?
6. Football player/cheerleader
High school fantasy, of course. For more fun, make this one a gender flexor.
7. Claire and Frank Underwood (plus Meechum, if you will)
This fictional power couple has a healthy sex life, with each other and with each other. Put on that outspoken voice, go out on Halloween night and find yourself a Meechum!
8. Marc Antony/Cleopatra
Classic for a reason. The two are generally understood to have been super hot and super sexy. Plus, how fun are the costumes?
Latex, whips, leather, yes please! Another sexy classic.
Now go out and have a sexy Halloween.
