LOVE Islanders have been enjoying a spot of dressing up – just to get undressed again.
The TV villa hopefuls have kitted themselves out as horny devils, randy police officers and used a James Bond theme in their saucy challenges on the ITV2 show.
Islander Millie Court even raided the costume cupboard to play a sexy nurse for Liam Reardon during their night of passion in the Hideaway.
And while bad role play can be like seedy amateur dramatics, good role play is sexy, erotic and all-consuming.
It lets you adopt a different – more confident – personality, wear sexy outfits and pretend you are bonking anyone in the world you fancy. What’s not to love about that?
Sexpert KATE TAYLOR brings you her guide to some classic scenarios, with everything you need to try them out yourself. Lights, camera – and role with it
A DAY WITH A VERY PERSONAL SHOPPER
YOU want to update your image so you’ve booked a day out with a (very) personal stylist.
They arrive and are pleasingly well-groomed, as well as extremely hands-on – especially when they are advising you on your underwear. Your assistant also seems reluctant to leave the changing room when you are getting undressed.
WHY IT’S HOT: When fitting rooms open again, this will be a sexy scenario to do in a busy department store. Until then, it’s equally steamy at home.
It lets you tease each other with small requests that get more passionate as the “appointment” goes on.
WHAT YOU NEED: Full-length mirror. Champagne. A range of clothes to try on and take off, including lots of underwear.
WHAT TO SAY: “Would madam like a bra-fitting?”
“I’m going to have to measure your inside-leg again.”
THE NAME’S BOND, JAMES BONDAGE
HE’S the hunk in trunks, the dish in a dinner jacket – and he knows just what to do with his weapon.
Who wouldn’t fancy a night in double-Oh heaven with their very own MI-Sex agent.
WHY IT’S HOT: It’s about teasing and making him work for your attention. He may be a charmer but don’t succumb too easily. You’ve got to get him to reveal his saucy secrets before he talks you out of your dress. Play it cooler than a shaken martini.
WHAT YOU NEED: You could dress for a glam night at the Casino Royale. Start off in your car (it doesn’t have to be an Aston Martin, you’ll soon be revving each other’s engines). Or in this hot weather, get into your beachwear and imagine him emerging from an exotic sea. If you like the idea of James Bondage, use silky scarves to force secrets out of him.
WHAT TO SAY: “Shall we inspect your gadgets?”
“The name’s Pussy, Pussy Galore.”
HANG ON, THAT’S NOT THE GEAR STICK, IS IT?
THERE are a couple of different ways to work up through the gears using your car. Pretend you are selling it and a potential buyer wants to take it for a test drive.
After parking up in a deserted lane, they admit they don’t have the money, but hope you can come to some arrangement.
Or maybe you break down by the side of the road and are overcome with gratitude (and lust) for the driver who stops to help.
WHY IT’S HOT: Nookie outside the home gives you the exhibitionist thrill of getting caught. And car sex forces you to ditch Missionary and adopt more creative positions. Try Girl On Top on the passenger seat, Spoons in the hatchback, or Doggy on the bonnet.
WHAT YOU NEED: A car. A local lay-by. A hi-vis jacket and a torch if you’re being a breakdown driver.
WHAT TO SAY: “Do these seats recline?”
“And this knocking you heard from the back seat – could you demonstrate it?”
LINE OF BOOTY: THIS COP IS REALLY DIRTY
HAVE your wicked way with one of your own. You’re an anti-corruption police officer interrogating a sexy colleague on the carnal crimes you hope will be happening very, very soon.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, this is a very dirty copper.
WHY IT’S HOT: Power-play fantasies are always sexy. This one also lets you question your partner about sex – what they like, what they want to do and what really turns them on.
WHAT YOU NEED: Police uniforms (or you could go plain-clothes). A cork board covered in photos, names of sexual positions, dates and times of your recent bonks – all connected by string. A tape recorder. A mirror that you’ll pretend is two-way.
WHAT TO SAY: “I’m going to have to ask you to remove your trousers.”
“On the night in question, we left the pub at 11pm and headed to your bedroom. Can you tell me what happened next?”
WA-HEY, SIRI, PLAY SOME BARRY WHITE
YOUR Alexa has come to lusty life and is now a realistic sex-bot, programmed to fulfil your filthiest fantasies.
Unlike human lovers, your AI companion won’t ever get tired, have a headache or throw their back out. And their simple design and one purpose in life is to satisfy you – over and over again.
WHY IT’S HOT: This is another power-play fantasy. You can call the shots and have your robot at your beck and call. But the robot is also in charge here, even though they’re the ones receiving the commands. They will be the one performing all the actions as you take it easy and focus solely on your pleasure.
WHAT YOU NEED: The best robo-lovers come equipped with an array of electronic sex toys thrown in, so feel free to use all your sex toys in your drawer.
WHAT TO SAY: “Hey Siri, take off my top.”
“Alexa, can you show me the Reverse Cowgirl position?”
NAUGHTY NURSE TAKEN UP TO THE VAX
ONE of you is a nervous patient turning up to the clinic to get their Covid jab.
The other is a very attentive nurse, about to be struck off for performing the world’s most thorough check-up.
WHY IT’S HOT: It’s a play on trust – you’re in a vulnerable situation, putting your body into the nurse’s hands and relying on them not to take advantage. It’s also a fun chance to discuss any other problems you’ve been experiencing. Maybe you’ve been lacking with the libido a bit or finding it difficult to get aroused. They might have just the cure.
WHAT YOU NEED: PPE, including mask, gloves and apron. A white coat. A bed and clipboard. Accessories and apparatus: These can range from simple (such as bandages) to filthy (such sex toys).
WHAT TO SAY: “I feel some localised swelling in this area.”
“Let me examine you.”
“You might feel a small prick.”
DEVILISHLY HORNY …CAN YOU RESIST?
YOU are on a first date and you want to be good. The angel in you is telling you to be well-behaved and stick to a chaste kiss at the end.
But the devil wants to tempt you further. Will you go with your inner devil? You’ll have a hell of a lot of fun.
WHY IT’S HOT: Forbidden sex is the most erotic. Turning your heavenly body into a temple of chastity will make your 450th bonk feel like it’s the first time. Act like your partner is a sinner if they try to touch you, but be sure to seem like you’re wrestling with devilish temptation . . . until you finally give in.
WHAT YOU NEED: Angel wings and/or a halo. Devil horns and tail. Or if you haven’t been at a stag do or am-dram production lately, go minimal. One of you dresses in virginal white, the other in satanic black and red.
WHAT TO SAY: “Lead me not into temptation! Oh, go on, then.”
“It’s sinner time."
DRAW ME LIKE ONE OF YOUR FRENCH GIRLS
ONE of you is an artist. The other is their muse, posing for a naked portrait. This is a very seductive scenario whether you’re the next Bob Ross or whether you can barely draw breath.
It’s all about the build-up – letting the tension mount as you study every inch of their naked body.
WHY IT’S HOT: Couples stop looking at each other over time. This fantasy forces you to gaze upon your partner, capturing their posterior for posterity. Plus, it’s very hot to feel your partner’s eyes on you, while you sit still knowing they are just getting turned on without you doing anything. If you’re body-conscious, try draping some fabric over any of the bits you don’t like.
WHAT YOU NEED: A sofa and a sheet. A sketch pad and pencils, or paints.
WHAT TO SAY: “Just bend over and then arch your back for me.”
“I might just have to study this bit up close.”
RIDE AND PREJUDICE WITH PERIOD DRAMA
IF a Regency romp gets you hot under your ruffle then try some period drama. Pride And Prejudice is a good place to start.
Act out Lizzie and Mr Darcy’s wedding night. Or go Bridgerton and spend a lusty night with the Duke. Or just be anyone in virtually any scene from Game Of Thrones
WHY IT’S HOT: Doing it the old-fashioned way forces you to explore modesty, repressed emotions and being “naughty”. It creates the feeling you’re not really allowed to have all these passionate desires. Plus, corsets.
WHAT YOU NEED: I’d splurge on a night in a hotel for this. Otherwise, light your bedroom with candles only. Costumes will help to make this come to life, so pull out any outfits with corset fastenings, stockings, oversized nightshirts, riding boots, cravats, morning coats…
WHAT TO SAY: “Oh, Mr Darcy, you’ve caught me coming out of my bath.”
“My good lady, I’m not certain this is proper…”
THE DOS AND DON'TS
- DO set the scene with props and costumes, or book a hotel. The more immersive you can make things, the hotter it gets.
- DON’T break out of character if you get the giggles or cramp. React like your character would. It’s sexier, and funnier.
- DO choose characters that are the opposite of the “real life” you, to explore a different side of your personality.
- DON’T make fun of your partner later for things they said or did while they were Charles and you were Camilla. Trust is essential for role play.
- DO agree on a safe word first so you know when to break character and stop.
- DON’T make your partner try anything they’re not comfortable with.
- DO stick to imaginary characters, or celebs, not Karen from No32.
- DON’T get stage fright. Have a glass of wine first if you’re nervous, and try things in a no-pressure way.
