Sex

Being in a healthy long-term relationship is wonderful. It means you always have someone there for you — to be your best friend, your shoulder to cry on and permanent dinner date.

Best of all? You always have someone to have sex with!

The one drawback to sleeping with the same person over and over and over again is that it's easy to get stuck in a boring sex routine. But fortunately, there are tons of kinky role play ideas for couples to try in bed without going too far outside of your comfort zone.

One of the best ways to have the best sex ever is by experimenting with some hot, sexy roleplay ideas and living out your sexual fantasies.

After all, if you're both open and willing to explore some fun ways to spice things up — from switching up positions to finding creative places to get busy — sex never has to get boring.

Playing some sexy games by taking on a new identity in the bedroom might sound a little daunting at first, but it's fun, I promise!

Here are the 30 best roleplay ideas and sex fantasies for couples to try in bed to spice things up.

1. The repairman and the homeowner

You've got a leak to fix and your partner's the only one who's got the right wrench.

(OK, OK, I can hear the eye rolls — but this one is surprisingly fun and simple for beginners!)

2. The professor and student

For anybody who had a little teacher fetish in their early twenties, this role playing situation is more fun than cliche.

3. The stripper and customer

Pick your favorite sexy song, slide on some lacy lingerie, then sway your hips and let yourself give the perfect lap dance.

4. The porn stars

Pick a porn you both like (that fulfills a sex fantasy you share) and reenact it together.

5. The on-camera porn stars

Kick the previous idea up a notch and actually film yourselves having sex.

Not only will it turn you both on, it will ensure you two will be at the top of your game.

6. The cheerleader & the football player

If you're already trying out the porn star thing, you might as well try a role playing idea that will seem very familiar.

You can purchase cheap costumes on Amazon or just use clothes you have in your closet and play the parts. 

7. Strangers at a bar

Role play by arriving separately to the same bar, flirt a little bit with other people, then eventually go and talk to one another like you're strangers.

This will get the feelings flowing as you start to remember exactly what drew you to each other in the first place.

8. Dominant / submissive roleplay

Do a bit of playful spanking and some light hair-pulling to determine if you want to go further.

9. Then switch to submissive / dominant!

One of the best things about having sex with somebody you love is that you two can explore your sexual fantasies together.

Of course, if one isn't comfortable with being the role of the dominant or submissive, then certainly don't push yourselves into it, but if you are feeling flexible, changing it up could be fun.

10. Role-Reversal

Is your partner usually on top? Then this time, you take over the upper role and dictate the conversation your bodies are having.

11. The stars of your favorite movie

Regardless of what it is, if you two have a sex scene or film you find particularly entrancing, act it out with one another and see how it feels.

12. The famous singer and the fan

If one of you is particularly good at singing, you could try doing a little private performance featuring a seductive song.

For example, nobody could resist the charms of Portishead's "Glory Box" no matter how hard they try.

13. The fireman

It is a well-known fact that everyone who has ever worked for every fire department ever has been unreasonably hot.

Role play a fireman rescuing a damsel in distress and then getting to know each other a bit more intimately. 

14. The client and the call girl (or gigolo)

Let your partner list exactly what they wants as you act like like you're there to cater to their every need.

15. The control freak

Have one of you lie down and the other do whatever they wants — kissing, licking, even light tickling — until the person lying on the bed is begging for more.

16. The Hollywood starlet / leading man and their secret admirer

You roleplay the sexy star and your partner can be your secret admirer.

Do your hair, do your makeup, put yourself in a fancy gown or tux and let your inner diva nature go wild.

17. The chef and the server

Don’t make just any dishes — only make foods you can feed to your partner by hand.

18. The masseuse

Snag some sexy massage oil, light a few candles and give one another erotic massages until you're both feeling smooth, silky and ready to be touched further.

19. The voyeur

Watch your partner masturbate for an extended period of time to increase tension and enjoy the view.

20. The exhibitionists

Speaking of enjoying the view, if you two are into the idea of being watched, imagine you have a little audience made up of people you both find hot.

21. The bather

Give each other baths slowly and sexily among bubbles, essential oils and delicious body washes.

22. Your favorite TV duo

Got a thing for Olivia Pope and President Grant from "Scandal"? How about Shane and Carmen from "The L-Word"? Or maybe even Rachel and Ross from "Friends"?

It doesn't matter who, as long as pulling off your own scene acting as them gets you going.

23. Royalty and servant

Have your partner bring you wine, feed you grapes, rub your feet, and just do all the general things we see in depictions of Renaissance royals and their servants.

24. The painter and their muse

If one of you is artistically inclined, break out the easel and brushes, then have one pose naked as the other immortalizes them on canvas.

25. The doctor and nurse

Cliché roleplay idea? Yes. Fun? Also, yes. This is a sex fantasy so many people enjoy, why not give it a try?

26. The dance teacher and the student

Take a few private lessons to prep for this one, then enact a scenario in which you are a student and your partner is the instructor (or vice versa) and seduce one another through the art of movement.

27. Innocent versus ... well, not-so-innocent

One of you can pretend to be a bit naive, while the other takes control and "teaches" the first all about sex.

28. Mile-high club members

Having sex on an actual airplane can get you in a lot of trouble, but making out and eventually sneaking into your own small bathroom can feel nearly as exciting.

29. The boss and their employee

Ever seen the 2002 movie "Secretary" with Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader?

If not, you most definitely should.

30. The hotel maid and guest

Slip into a sexy maid costume and after one knock on the door from "housekeeping," things will heat up in no time.
