Role plays are indeed fantasies played out; nothing more. I have been involved and still am involved in a few of them as we speak. They are fun, especially if you have a partner or partners willing to share.

There are some things my characters have endured in a role/play that I have never done in real life. For instance I am involved in one as we speak where my person and a female are both abducted, tortured and sold into slavery. Yes it's horrific, but I get a certain feeling of excitement about it. Yes it's erotic, and yes it turns me on.

If you read something in a role/play that turns you off, let it go. There are things that turn me off as well. But what satisfies one person might not another. It's whatever floats your boat, as it were.
