The naughty nurse is a popular stereotype enacted in sexual role play. This sexually provocative figure is a common object of sexual fantasies and characters in films, TV programs, and advertising materials. The character typically wears a tight, short nurse’s dress, often paired with other fetish apparel such as stockings with garters or high-heeled shoes. Part of the appeal of this character is that the nurse is a caregiver for someone unable to care for themselves. Doing so provides an element of nurturing, as well as of power and dominance.
