When you think about role-playing and sex games, what comes to mind? For some, it may mean acting out fantasies such as a boss and naughty secretary scenario, complete with costumes. For others, it may mean donning a blindfold or adding a little kink or bondage. For still others, it may be something as simple as pretending to be strangers and flirting with your partner during a night out. The acting can be as creative as you like -- so long as you and your partner are comfortable with it.

Whatever the flavor, the goal of role-playing is to lessen your inhibitions and spice up your experience. Stepping into a new character or situation can help boost satisfaction and fun -- especially for monogamous couples who have been together for several years. Who will you get to sleep with today? Maybe a side of your partner you've never seen before.
