The Ultimate Sexual Ideas Guide—Role Play, Fantasy, Date Nights

Last updated:

Sometimes, it can be hard to come up with good sexual ideas to make things more exciting for you and your partner. You both are busy with life, so it’s natural that being creative in the bedroom gets harder. 

If you’re looking for new ideas for experimentation with your partner, then we have a list of sexy date ideas and sexual roleplay ideas to help you find new things you both love. 

What Is Roleplaying?

Roleplaying is an act of pretending to be someone else while having sex. For example, you might take on the role of being a doctor while your partner pretends to be a nurse, or you both choose to embrace the dom/sub dynamic in the bedroom. 

You can go as in-depth and complicated on this as you want. If you’re into experimentation, you might consider getting costumes and investing in setting the scene (for example: booking a hotel room or making a reservation at a particular restaurant that fits your roleplay scenario). 

Why You Want To Try It

1. Easier Way To Communicate Your Sexual Fantasy Ideas

Sometimes, communicating your sexual fantasies face to face might be too hard. If that’s the case, roleplaying can help you do that in a safer and less direct way. 

If something about the scenario doesn’t fit with your partner’s needs, you can simply write it off as a game without the pressure of being judged or misunderstood by your partner. 

2. Exploration of Sexual Fantasies

We all have sexual fantasies, and roleplaying can be a safe space to explore some of these fantasies in a controlled environment with someone you trust. 

3. Get To Know Your Erotic Self Better

If you’re unsure about what things you enjoy sexually, roleplaying can help you explore them. By taking on different roles and exploring different scenarios, you can understand what you are as a person, whether you’re more dominant or submissive, or both.

You can understand your desires, what turns you on and off, and maybe even why. Role play is a tool that can offer a lot of personal insight if you’re willing to experiment. 

4. Heal Trauma

Some people find roleplaying and other BDSM activities helpful when dealing with sexual trauma. Exploring different roles and scenarios in a safe and controlled environment might be useful in aiding the healing process.

5. Improve Intimacy With Your Partner

Studies show that one of the things that help have a long-term happier relationship and improve the connection between partners is trying out new things together

Roleplay is the ultimate activity that will always encourage you and your partner to try something new and bring novelty to your life. 

How To Play Safely

Before you go any further with roleplay, let’s discuss some important safety things.

Communicate Beforehand

Before you try roleplay, it’s important to communicate with your partner about what you want to try, why, and how. It’s best to have this type of conversation outside the bedroom, in a neutral environment where you and your partner can discuss things without pressure. 

It might also be useful to have multiple discussions rather than one-off conversations. Roleplay can be complex, so you and your partner might need time to think about things before you make the final decision on what to try.

Set Boundaries 

Discussing boundaries is crucial before playing. You and your partner might have different tolerance levels for different sexual activities, different sexual pasts, and confidence levels. 

Take all of this into consideration and make sure to discuss in detail things that are off-limits or that should be kept for a later date when both of you are more comfortable with roleplay in the bedroom. 

Have Safewords

It’s also smart to have a safe word before you begin. Sometimes, you might have a scenario where words like “no” and “stop” won’t be effective. In this case, you need something that will allow you both to communicate clearly when one of you is uncomfortable or need a break.

You might also use a “traffic light” system for this, where you use the colors green/yellow/red to communicate during the roleplay scenario:

  • Green: all good, keep going.
  • Yellow: keep going, but let’s take things slower.
  • Red: let’s take a break.

Keep an Open Mind

As with everything, keep an open mind when exploring roleplay with your partner. If they suggest a scenario that sounds weird or intimidating, try to keep away from judgment or a negative reaction. 

The same goes for you. If you suggest something and your partner doesn’t like it, respect their decision and don’t force the scenario on them. Find common ground and treat each other’s needs with care and love. 

Aftercare

Aftercare is crucial after BDSM scenes, and it’s also important after a roleplay session. It’s the time dedicated to reconnecting with yourself and your partner and making sure that everyone is feeling alright.

What you find soothing will vary greatly from person to person. Some might need to be close to their partners, while others will want to spend some time alone. 

If the scenario was intense, you might feel like crying, and that’s also totally normal. Make sure you communicate your needs and thought with your partner and let them know how you feel. 

Aftercare is also the perfect time to talk about what you both just experienced. Discuss the parts you enjoyed and parts you might want to try differently. 

Sexual Roleplay Ideas for Couples

1. Professor and Student

The professor and a student roleplay idea is super hot and sexy due to it being taboo. It also involves the power exchange dynamic because the professor is an authority figure. So, if that’s your thing, you’ll love this roleplay scenario. 

One partner takes on the student role, and to make it more realistic; you might want to dress up for it. Go for a white shirt and classic pants or, better yet, a skirt (leave the underwear off for added pleasure) for easy access.

Your partner can dress up as well. And if you have something around the house that helps create a school or university setting, use it!

2. Repairman and Homeowner

It’s a classic porn scenario, where (usually) a housewife has a leaking pipe in her kitchen and calls for help from a sexy repairman. If you want a simple and effortless roleplay scenario, this one is perfect for you!

You don’t have to dress up much, putting on a pair of your favorite underwear or lingerie and a shirt over it (keep it open, of course) as you meet the repairman (or repairwoman). 

For the setting, you might choose the room where the imaginary repair takes place. Have a leaking pipe in the kitchen? Have sex on the counter. Is the problem in the bathroom? Well then, why not have a quicky while bent over a sink in your bathroom? 

3. Strangers 

If you have always wanted to have sex with a stranger, you can easily explore this fantasy together with your partner as roleplay. 

On your next date night with your partner, plan a night out at a nice restaurant or a bar. Arrive at two separate times and pretend to meet for the very first time. 

It’s a great way to rekindle an old flame and remember how exciting it was at the very start of your relationship. Don’t forget to end the night with passionate sex at home or in a hotel room.  

4. Submissive/Dominant

If you and your partner are interested in exploring a little bit of kink, then playing submissive and Dominant will be a perfect roleplay fantasy for you. 

One partner will be taking the lead in the bedroom while the other one will be obedient and follow orders. Choosing to be a submissive partner can be very freeing for the partner who is always in charge IRL. 

And if you love to care for your partner, then the Dominant role might give you a chance to fulfill that desire in a sexual way. 

5. The Fireman and Homeowner

Another classic porn roleplay scenario is a fireman and a sexy housewife. Dressing up as a fireman might be hard if you don’t work as a fireman IRL, but if you want to go the extra mile, you might want to consider buying a helm or a full-on costume to dress up in front of your partner. 

Let’s be honest – everyone loves a man in a uniform, so why not spice things up for one night of fun? 

6. Maid and Homeowner

Another scenario exploring the power exchange dynamic is the roleplay of a maid and a homeowner. One partner will be in charge, being the homeowner who sits around and watches the maid cleaning the house. 

Make the scenario extra by dressing up. You don’t have to buy the uniform, but putting on a short black dress or being only in your underwear and wearing an apron (the best view for your partner) can make things extra steamy. 

The partner playing the homeowner can give the partner who plays the maid orders on what to clean and how. And the partner who plays the maid can make sure they’re teasing their partner as much as they can while doing it.  

7. Pizza Delivery

Who doesn’t like the idea of ordering the pizza for dinner and it is delivered by an extremely attractive pizza delivery guy or a gal? You can bring this fantasy to life together with your partner. 

Order pizza for collection. One partner goes to collect while the other partner waits for them to come back. When the pizza delivery arrives, all the fun begins!

8. Massage Parlor

The massage parlor is a sexual fantasy worth exploring with your partner. You can create a whole scene by dedicating a space in your home and turning it into a massage studio. 

Get a massage oil and maybe stones, body massagers, and sex toys you have in your collection for this experience. One partner will be the masseuse, while the other will play a client. 

Light some candles and put on a relaxing playlist in the background. Start with a full body massage, and then move on to an erotic lingam or yoni massage. End the night with a happy-ending massage or a hot sex session. 

9. Sex Worker and Client

This roleplay scenario has different variations. One partner can pretend to be an escort with a high-profile client, a perfect scenario for a fancy dinner. Or, one partner can play a stripper or a pornstar or webcam model. The sky is the limit here!

To make it spicier, consider dressing up. Things like lingerie and fishnet socks with high heels work perfectly for this roleplay scenario. You might even consider putting on a wig to embrace another persona. 

And then blow your partner’s mind with a sensual lap dance before you get to the real good stuff. 

10. Office Romance

Office romance is forbidden, and that makes it thousand times more delicious. Dress up for work and choose a setting that reminds you of the office – the home office is perfect, but a dining room works just as well. 

Pretend that you’re coworkers who have been working overtime together and have some fun!

11. Officer and a Criminal

A good way to tap into the world of BDSM is through the roleplay of an officer and a criminal. Get some restraint tools like soft leather cuffs or bondage tape. If you want to go the extra mile, buy an officer uniform (you can find them online or in costume shops locally). 

You can consider including a little bit of sexy punishment like spanking the partner who is the criminal to punish them for their “crimes” or make it spicier and punish them in a more sexual way (hint: edging or orgasm denial).

12. Nurse and a Patient

For those who love to care for their partner or who enjoy being cared for, then the nurse and patient roleplay will be perfect. In this scenario, one partner will take on the role of caretaker, tending to the needs of another partner who will be the patient. 

You might want to dress up as an actual nurse. If your partner is into uniforms, then they’ll surely appreciate the touch. 

13. Personal Trainer and a Client

It’s time to get sweaty! A personal trainer and a client is a very sexy roleplay. The partner who takes on the role of the personal trainer can build a lot of tension while showing workouts to their “clients” with little touches. 

Make things more fun by using pilates and yoga moves that are similar to some of your favorite sex positions. And if you want to take it up a notch, maybe ask the “client” to skip on wearing underwear or shed the clothing off as the workout progresses. 

Sexual Date Ideas

If sexual roleplay ideas are not your thing, don’t worry! There are still plenty of sexual ideas for date nights that might be more up your alley: 

1. Strip Poker

If you’re a fan of card games and poker in particular, then you want to suggest playing strip poker with your partner during the next date night. 

You don’t have to be a pro at poker. There are plenty of websites online that explain the rules and basic strategies you need to know to play. And either way, the quality of the game doesn’t matter – nobody is really losing when you both are getting naked. 

2. Body Painting

Body painting is a bit messier than strip poker, but it can be super fun and intimate activity to do with your partner. You can find body-safe paint or temporary tattoo paints online or in an art store. 

Make sure you cover the space you’ll be using for body painting. It’s best to get naked for this activity, but if you don’t want to, then make sure you’re wearing underwear or clothing you’re not afraid to ruin. 

You can paint whatever you want on your partner’s body, or you might want to make the activity more meaningful and use the body paint to write things you love and appreciate about your partner. Once you’re done, you can both read it to each other.

3. Exhibitionism for Beginners

The next time you go out for dinner or coffee, make things a little bit sexier by incorporating exhibitionism into your date. There are a few ways to do it:

  • For the brave ones, wear a sex toy like a but plug or a vibrating bullet inside the panties while you’re out and about. Your partner controls the vibe, and you have to make sure to keep a straight face in public. 
  • For vulva-owners, wear a dress or a skirt and leave the panties at home. Only you and your partner will know about it, and it will be a huge turn-on. 
  • Wear a temporary body piercing (like a nipple piercing) while out in public with your partner. You both share a sexy secret that will build excitement throughout the date. 

4. Yes/No/Maybe Fantasy List

Yes/No/Maybe a fantasy list is a great way to communicate your sexual fantasies and sexual ideas with your partner in a safe and non-judgmental way. 

You can take a test online together, or you might make your own list and print it out so you can both go over it on your next date night. And always remember to go into this with an open mind and no judgment!

5. Shop for Lingerie Together

Does your partner enjoy lingerie? If the answer is yes, then a sexy date idea would be to go lingerie shopping together. You might do it in person by going to an actual store. It can be fun to try things on in front of your partner in public… 

But shopping online and doing a try-on haul at home can be equally sexy. It might even be sexier because there will be the time you have to wait between purchasing lingerie and it arriving, which you can use to build more tension before the special night. 

6. Shop for Sex Toys Together

If lingerie is not your thing, you might want to go sex toy shopping together instead. You can do it in the comfort of your own home, browsing online while you have a glass of wine. 

It can be fun to look at all the different toys for couples and solo use and pick the ones you both like the most and would love to try it. The waiting time for the toy to arrive will also be a fun way to add spice to your everyday life outside the bedroom. 

7. Sexy Scavenger Hunt

If you’re feeling a little bit extra, then you might consider organizing a sexy scavenger hunt for your partner. We all loved those when we were kids, following clues and solving puzzles to get to the prize at the end. The adult version can be just as exciting, if not more!

Not sure where to start? We got you! Here are sexual scavenger hunt ideas:

  • Taste test: blindfold your partner. Use various food items on your body, like chocolate sauce on your neck and whipped cream on your nipples, and ask your partner to locate the sweets by giving them clues on where to find them. 
  • The winner gets to choose: hide a few sex toys your partner loves around the house and give them clues about where to find them. Once they collect them all, they get to choose which one they will use.
  • Treasure chest: fill a box with romantic things for a date or sexy things for a steamy night together. Then, write down riddles on pieces of paper and hide them for your partner to find. When they finally get to the last riddle and solve it, their prize will be the chest filled with goodies!
