What It Is
This is when a scene is played out by two or more people all done in character. This involved to the person changing their behaviour to assume a role to act out, for example: Doctors and nurses A young doctor flirts with a pretty young nurse and they disappear into a private room/cupboard and have some fun. Limits are up to the two or more consenting people. Scenarios are as limitless as there are different genres of which one can choose while role-playing, including, but not limited to, fantasy, modern, medieval, steam punk, historical, etc. Books, movies or games can be, and often are, used as a basis for role-plays (which in such cases may be deemed "collaborative fan-fiction"), with players either assuming the roles of established characters or using those the players themselves create "Original Characters" to replace or exist alongside characters from the book, movie or game, playing through well-trodden plots as alternative characters, or expanding upon the setting and story outside of its established plot. Role playing takes years to master, but it does not take too long to learn the basics. From this people get a deeper sexual thrill as it is something that they would normally never do which adds fuel to the fire and heightens the experience.
Roleplay and Sex
Many of the most common sexual roleplays involve a power differential and form part of the dominance and submission aspect of BDSM. Roles can be general designations of power positions, or very specific, detailed fantasies. Some people, such as those living the Gorean lifestyle 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.
this is a form of roleplaying in which an individual acts and/or treats another as if they were a different age. The practice can be regressive, in which the goal is to re-experience childhood, or sexual, recreating a sexual relationship with people of the pretend and/or true ages. Generally this can involve someone pretending to be younger than they actually are, but more rarely can involve assuming an older role. We have a whole page dedicated to Ageplay.
