Medical play is a type of sexual role-playing scenario where sexual partners take on the roles of medical practitioners and their patients. It’s a power play fetish where the dominant partner plays the Doctor and the submissive plays the patient ready to be examined. Usually the Dom will perform a medical exam of the patient, which involves highly sexual procedures.
Medical roleplay procedures can include an examination of the anus, urethra, or vagina with bondage sex toys, as well as inflicting pain on other parts of the body. Often the patient is restrained, gagged, stripped naked on the bed or dressed in a humiliating costume during medical roleplay scenarios. Hardcore bondage toys such as urethral sounds and Wartenberg wheels are often used to enhance the examination and sexual stimulation. Medical play may be an aspect of medical fetishism, and sometimes a softer version can be played by couples, such as the naughty nurse costume and Doctor combination in sexual roleplay.
