Role Reversal

Definition - What does Role Reversal mean?

From a sexual standpoint, role reversal refers to the woman penetrating the man by using a plethora of accessories such as strap-on dildos and harnesses. This relationship dynamic is often, but not always, found in BDSM relationships where the female participant adopts a more active role. The anus and prostrate are often stimulated during role reversal.

Kinkly explains Role Reversal

The market offers an extended variety of toys used for role reversal. These are usually designed to enhance the comfort and pleasure of both partners. For example, women can wear a "strapless" strap-on to anally penetrate the man. This entails inserting a dildo into the vagina and using the outer end of the toy to penetrate the man. Alternatively, couples can also invest in a strap-on dildo where the female attaches a harness around her lower body. Some male anal toys are uniquely curved to easily reach and stimulate the prostrate.

There are a multitude of positions that individuals can adopt during role reversal sex with the most popular one being "doggy-style" sex. Other positions include, but are not limited to, sideways or woman-on-top.

  • On the nights they went to bed at the same time, Rocco would lie there and watch her go to the closet, watch her choose either silky slips or mannish shirts, like running up sex flags from across the room.
