Now, this isn’t a poly focused blog, it’s poly friendly, but it’s not generally a blog about poly. I’m not poly (my partner and I are sexually open, but we don’t have other relationships) and so don’t feel qualified to write about it generally, however having had a reasonable amount of experience with menage au trois (or more) I decided to come up with a list of roleplay dynamics for three people (largely these will be gender neutral)
- Teacher/good student/bad student: The teacher can punish the bad student with the help of the good student, or the bad student can “abuse” the good student raising the ire of the teacher.
- Puppeteer/Marionettes (or director/actors): The puppeteer can force the marionettes into lewd acts together, manipulating as they wish.
- Nanny(or parental figure)/little/toy: The nanny can “give” a player as a toy to a partner playing the part of the little, the resulting exuberant energy and play make for an interesting dynamic.
- Royalty and servant: two dominants take the role of royals and the third party takes the role of servant, the two dominants can both make conflicting orders for a fun mind fuck or simply take terms castigating the “ill behaved” servant.
- Slave Trader/Slave/Potential Buyer: The slave trader can show the submissive off, putting them through their paces, and the buyer can put them through a humiliating “inspection” type process
- Rockstar/manager/groupie: The rockstar can laise around being irresponsible/ordering about the manager, while the manager delivers the groupie to the rockstar and has to order the groupie about/gives the groupie orders to better please the rockstar.
- Animal/Animal groom/Animal’s Owner: The groom is put in charge of the “animal’s” maintenance, making sure the animal stays where its supposed to/looks neat and tidy/is fed at the risk of punishment by the owner. The groom can be given authority to punish the animal, or the owner can be over protective and dote upon the animal and not allow the groom to punish it. The animal of course can behave in a difficult manner and make life hard for the groom.
- Dungeon Owner/”victim”/Ghost: In this scenario the dungeon owner is torturing a helpless victim, but there’s a “ghost” in the dungeon. The dungeon owner and the victim pretend they cannot see the ghost, and the ghost can do whatever it likes, helping the victim, by perhaps untying their bonds, or hiding toys from the dungeon owner, or cause the victim pain, by doing things like insulting the dungeon owner, thus encouraging them to inflict more pain upon the “victim”
- Doctor/Nurse/Patient: A kinky doctor and nurse preform a variety of evil procedures upon a reluctant patient. The nurse obviously assists the doctor in doing whatever the doctor wants.
- Aliens Probing a victim: Aliens from outer space conduct research upon a subject.
- Doll/Dollmaker/Customer: The doll is almost finished however the customer has some custom specifications they want on their toy, the doll maker enacts these upon the doll. You might do tight lacing, temporary or permanent piercings, or similar modifications for the purpose of play.
- Criminal/Hostage/Hero: The scene starts with the criminal molesting the hostage, this can go on as long as the players should like, but then the hero bursts in with a toy weapon, the hero over powers the criminal… and then the hero and the hostage take sweet (kinky) revenge upon the criminal.
- Loving couple/Pet: The couple will participate in normal couple-y activities, and of course pet ownership activities “lets take Rover out for a jog” and so on.
- Victorian couple/Servant: In the Victorian couple one person will play the higher status “husband” type role, and the other will play the lower status “wife” type role (neither of these roles is of fixed gender) while the third party plays a servant, the “husband” can order around the wife and the servant, but mostly just orders around the “wife”, the “wife” will then take it upon themselves to order the servant to preform the duties the husband wants done, with the “wife” with authority to punish the servant for disobedience, and the “husband” with authority to punish the “wife”
- Pimp/prostitute/client: Pretty self explanatory.
