For many of us, being comfortable enough to be ourselves in the bedroom seems like an arduous task in itself, so the thought of adding roleplay or cosplay into the mix can be straight up overwhelming. But sexologist Shannon Boodram assures us that it doesn't have to be that way — once we're able to pinpoint our fantasies and put them into words, it's easier to vocalize them to our partners. According to Boodram, most people's fantasies actually overlap in some way, and they tend to fall into one (or more!) of these five common categories:

  • Strangers in the night
  • Let 'em watch
  • Powerplay
  • Private dancer
  • The hunger game

Check out the video to learn more about these favoured types of fantasy play, and hear Shannon's strategies for exploring them in your own relationship.
