Even the most “in-love” couples can lose that sexual spark and need a quick recharge of sexual energy. As a sex and relationship therapist, I suggest role play as a healthy way to regain sexual desire, while having uninhibited fun! Role play can save a relationship if done safely, comfortably, and without judgment from your partner.
Often times no props are needed and many couples report that they are playing as athletes, entertainers, as well as made up characters such as: delivery person/client, stripper/client, teacher/student, and the list goes on. I recommend making sure both partners are comfortable, and they’re playing in a safe and “legal” atmosphere. The number one why reason why role play is healthy for couples is because:
Role play helps with loss of attraction/desire issues-Changes in relationships, especially long-term relationships, happen naturally. Couples may get caught up in life’s issues and may not have much time for sex, or even dating. When couples report being tired of routine sex, I might recommend role play as a way to reconnect and recharge sexual energy, in a fun way. Queue your inner cowgirl (or whatever you want to be) and saddle up! Role play can contribute to a happy, adventurous, sexual relationship!
