Resistance play

Resistance play is a very common fantasy, and it’s a subset of what’s known as Rough Body Play or RBP for short. RBP is about a stylised confrontation between a ‘bottom’ and a ‘top’ in which the latter overpowers the former, who’s pretending they don’t want to be overpowered.


Where people are sexually attracted to the sight, smell or feel of feet, but this version is all about the shoes. The shoes might be just a part of the person’s sexual activity, or they could be the main event.

Fetish for being beaten, whipped or flogged.

Ripped clothes

The thrill comes from ripping, or fantasising about ripping, the clothes off somebody you want to have sex with – or of being the one whose clothes are being ripped off, the cause of uncontrollable desire. Mainly used in a Domination scenario.

Role play and role reversal

Role play is when people act out particular roles for sexual gratification, and role reversal is a common example: a man might play a female role, or be the one who gets penetrated rather than the one who does the penetrating. Role play also enables people to act out fantasies they wouldn’t want to explore in real life, such as pretending to be teacher and student or sex worker and client.


There are multiple rope fetishes within BDSM, many of which owe a lot to the Japanese ‘shibari’ style. Some rope bondage centres on the whole body and particular positions; others focus on a particular body part or particular kind of tie. It’s very important to use the right ropes and techniques: substitute a less forgiving material or get the technique wrong and you could end up causing or suffering harm.

Ruined orgasms

Orgasms that are brought about as part of tease and denial play. A partner’s genitals are stimulated to the very brink of orgasm and the stimulation is abruptly ceased.


Fetish for red-headed people.
