February can be so high pressure. Couples worry they’ll fail to max out their romance potential, while singles can end up feeling left out altogether. With the right attitude though, February and — especially — Valentine’s Day can be exactly what it’s meant to be – a time to celebrate love, whether long-term, just for tonight, or just for you. Role playing is a great way to keep things light or go deeper.
Role playing can help committed couples heighten their intimacy through sharing fantasies. But even the most casual of play partners might be up for a scene if you ask them. And even if you’re spending V-Day on your own, hot scenarios make for great masturbation inspiration.
Whatever your Valentine vision may be, consider spicing it up with one of these make believe encounters.
The Honeymoon Suite
You’re a 1950s newlywed couple. You’ve just had rice thrown at you and driven away in a car announcing you as Just Married. You check in to the hotel as Mr. and Mrs. for the first time and are led to the honeymoon suite. This one works best if one of you is really into transforming your space. Think rose petals on the bed and champagne in the bathroom. Candlelight and bubble baths. And of course, breakfast in bed followed by a sensual massage with scented aphrodisiac Love Oil.
The Secret Wedding Night
Ancient Roman soldiers were forbidden to marry and Saint Valentine was reportedly imprisoned for performing these illicit weddings. Picture it: You’ve just been hitched in a secret midnight ceremony. Dawn arrives in four hours and you or your love will have to return to the front. Who knows when you’ll see each other again? Maybe you’re making love for the first time. Perhaps you’re bedding down in a secluded forest clearing and must remain totally silent to avoid discovery. Possibilities abound.
Delivery For You
One of you is the long-suffering partner of someone always out of town. You’re absolutely love-starved and feeling extremely horny. The other gets to ring the doorbell with the expected delivery of flowers, candy, and your new buzzy Le Wand. You lock eyes. They’re invited in for a glass of water and a secret tumble on the couch and to help you use your new toy. Tipping is optional.
Cupid and Their Prey
One of you is the winged god of love. The other is being pursued. The rule is if Cupid manages to hit their intended with an arrow (we recommend the suction cup variety) they become instantly and irretrievably love struck. They will do anything for the one with the bow. Anything.
The Stood Up Lover
One of you is a restaurant server. The other is seated in their section, waiting on a Valentine’s Day date who never appears. Of all the days to get stood up. When they’re still there at closing time, the server invites them back to their apartment to cheer them up. “I’ll make it up to you,” they say. “Name something crazy enough to make you forget all about this. And that’s what we’ll do.”
Psyche and Eros
In the ancient Greek myth Psyche is the personification of human beauty and Eros the son of Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty. Separated by the cruel game playing of the gods, Psyche ends up having to retrieve her love from the underworld. So decide who is Psyche and who is Eros and picture the moment when she, having crossed the river between worlds in the dark and battled forces like the many-headed dog guarding the gate to Hades, is finally in the presence of her love again. She thought she would never see him again.
Lady and The Tramp
Recreate the animated classic in which two dogs from different worlds enjoy a plate of spaghetti and meatballs. No forks allowed… but really all you need are your tongues and favorite flavored lube for hours of puppy fun!
The Purification of St. Valentine
Truly adventurous role players may enjoy the setting of Valentine’s imprisonment in the hours before his martyrdom. He would have been guarded round the clock and exposed to the cruel treatments of the guards. One of them binds the prisoner and subjects them to exquisite torments to induce a confession. This scene can be as tame or dark as necessary to suit the tastes of the players. Be sure to use a good rope for any bondage play, such as the Fifty Shades of Grey Restrain Me Bondage Rope Twin Pack.
The Lingerie Shop
One of you works in a boutique specializing in luxurious intimate apparel. The other is shopping for a gift for someone else but is struck by the charisma of the businesslike sales associate. Always eager to serve, the shopkeeper doesn’t bat an eye when asked to model something seductive for the buyer. And when they ask to see it in the dressing room light… well, the customer is always right after all.
The Surprise Seduction
One of you is a chef who’s been hired to prepare the ultimate romantic dinner for two. The two of you chat over champagne while the prep work is done. The host offers to help with the chopping. The cook asks them to taste something and sensuously directs a cooking spoon toward their lips. When the table is set and the candles lit, it’s revealed that no one else will be coming to dinner and you will be dining with the relentless and incredibly pleasurable vibrations of a remote control egg inside you throughout the meal.
Enjoy your heart-shaped cards, red roses, pink bubbles, and miniature teddy bears. Just don’t forget that February (like you) can be hot, as well as sweet.
