Role Playing


Sexual fantasies and role playing of these fantasies is among the most common of all sexual fetishes. In role playing, two people take on specific roles and act them out in a variety of erotic scenarios. The ability to take on a new persona and have sexual fantasies fulfilled makes role playing incredibly enticing for people, which accounts for the popularity of role playing in person and online.

History of Role Playing

Humans have been taking on different roles and acting out scenarios from the earliest times of ancient Greek theater. The enjoyment found in the act of dressing up and transforming into someone else is attractive to children playing dress up, amateur and professional actors on a stage, and can account for the fact that Halloween is equally popular among children and adults.

Determining the earliest time that role playing began to be used to act out sexual and erotic fantasies is not known, but variations of role playing can be found in literature and erotica for many generations. Role playing is one of the most diverse of all sexual fetishes, as anything is possible when left to the imagination and a wide range of scenarios, props and acts can be involved, depending on the personal preferences of the people engaged in role playing.
