Are you the hero Gotham deserves?
Yes, you have to be willing to look like an idiot sometimes.
It allows you to safely explore your relationship with your fantasies, with taboo, with power, with who you are and what turns you on – all while giving you the opportunity to play make-believe. You know, that super fun thing you stopped doing when you reached a certain age because you had to become ~grown up and mature~ or whatever.
BuzzFeed Health chatted with sex expert Ian Kerner, PhD, founder of GoodInBed.com and sexuality educator Sandra Daugherty, host of Sex Nerd Sandra, to get their best tips for making role-playing amazing. Here’s what they said:

A lot of people hear “role-play” and their minds immediately jump to, “You get a costume, I get a costume, we play out an official scene, we can’t break character. Go,” says Daugherty. But that’s such a high bar – and it’s only a small part of what role-playing can be.
Depending on what you and your partner want, role-playing can be taking on characters (“You be the prince, I’ll be the stableboy”). It can be wearing costumes and making a sex tape. It can be playing out simple scenarios (“Let’s pretend we’re in high school again and our parents are right downstairs”). It can be playing with dominance and submission. It can be playing with setting (“What would it be like if we were students at Hogwarts?”). It can be talking through a fantasy you have without actually carrying it out. TL;DR, it can be anything that allows you to explore different personalities, temperaments, and ways of expressing yourself sexually.

Sure, plenty of people get into role-playing as a way to ~spice up their sex lives~ or whatever, but you have to keep the bar low. Instead, go into it thinking that it could be something silly and new to try with your partner. Above all else, you have to be willing to laugh at yourself – because yes, there’s lots of room for error and you’re not going to do everything perfectly.
“Play should be for its own sake,” says Daugherty. “It doesn’t have to get you super turned on. It doesn’t have to be anything other than play for fun. You have a good laugh, and five minutes later, you’re having the best sex of your life.”

If a multi-act character-driven role-play extravaganza is your thing, by all means, YOU DO YOU. But things can be a lot easier than that – basically, all you need is one sentence to kick things off.
“It can literally be something as simple as, ‘You didn’t do your homework’ to begin playing with a dynamic. ‘Shh, my parents will hear us.’ ‘Don’t tell your wife,'” says Daugherty. “One sentence and then you’re done. And then the rest of your play can be exactly what you normally do, but then there’s an extra layer of excitement, a little extra fire.”

The portable media-streaming device, which is on sale for $40, includes a remote with a special button that activates Alexa, Amazon’s voice-controlled personal assistant. Previously, the Alexa Voice Remote was sold separately for $30. You can ask Alexa to “find [genre]” like sci-fi or romantic comedy, “play [show],” or “skip ahead two minutes.”
The new Fire TV Stick, which is no larger than a stick of gum, plugs right into a TV’s HDMI port and doesn’t look any different from the first-generation model introduced in 2014. Like its predecessor, this Fire TV Stick can stream shows from online services like Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, and, of course, Amazon Prime to the big screen. It also still has 8GB of storage and 1GB of memory.
What is new is what’s inside. The gadget now runs on a quad-core processor (up from dual-core) and supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi routers (the previous model only supported up to 802.11n, which has slower data transfer speeds).
The Fire TV Stick now features rows of personalized recommendations, which will surface show and movie suggestions based on the user’s viewing history for services they subscribe to.
In search results, Amazon also shows all of the services that a given movie or TV show is available on. The device will remember whatever the user selects as a preference, and default to that service the next time they play a movie or TV show. It will also default to where you can watch that content for free. For example, if The West Wing is available to stream on Netflix and rent or purchase on Amazon Video, the Fire TV Stick will choose Netflix.
Other Fire TV customers will get an over-the-air update for the redesigned software later this year.
Amazon’s streamer goes head-to-head with the Roku Streaming Stick ($50), announced in April, which also has a quad-core processor and unbiased search, and Google’s Chromecast ($35), which uses the phone as a remote and can mirror Android and tablet screens.
The Fire TV Stick is the more affordable, more portable media streaming device in Amazon’s lineup. The Fire TV ($100) is a box-like device that can be connected to the internet via ethernet, has double the memory of the Fire TV Stick, and supports 4K Ultra HD content. That more premium streamer is more in line with Chromecast’s new 4K-ready Ultra ($69), Roku Ultra ($130), and Apple TV ($140).
There’s a million things he hasn’t done. But now he’s done this.
