CUR­RENTS

if this isn’t the case, there is no pres­sure to fol­low through with the role-play. You have plenty of time to ex­per­i­ment with the same roles at an­other time — it’s not a one-shot deal.

Some peo­ple find that role-play helps them to com­mu­ni­cate their fan­tasies and de­sires in a more play­ful way (e.g., Nurse Nancy wants to be whipped with your dirty un­der­wear), and oth­ers find that they’re more open to ex­per­i­ment­ing once they’re in char­ac­ter. This makes sense, as both arousal and nov­elty are as­so­ci­ated with low­ered in­hi­bi­tions and greater cre­ativ­ity.

If you’re look­ing for cos­tumes that can be worn in and out of the bed­room, Toronto of­fers a range of op­tions from the bud­get con­scious Value Vil­lage to pop-up shops like Spirit Hal­loween with lo­ca­tions across the GTA. Up­town’s Candy’s Cos­tume Shop of­fers both sales and rentals.

If you’re a last-minute rev­eller and didn’t plan ahead, play the witty jester role and be in­spired by dou­ble en­ten­dres to cre­ate your own cos­tume. Here are a few of my favourites, can you de­ci­pher the dou­ble en­ten­dre? 1. Glue Smar­ties to your pants. 2. Put spice jars in a bra on top of your cloth­ing. 3. Wear cat ears and py­ja­mas. 4. Af­fix a small ra­dio to your head. 5. Tape some teddy bears to your arms. 6. If you’re sin­gle, carry around a bi­cy­cle wheel and stand next to cou­ples (bonus points for pho­to­bomb­ing). 7. Paint your face like an an­i­mal and wear a party hat. 8. Write “book” on your cheeks. 9. Wear a medal around your neck and at­tach some slices of bread to your out­fit.

These cre­ative cos­tumes may not lead di­rectly to hot role play, but they’ll likely lead to laughs and en­gag­ing con­ver­sa­tion, which of­ten amounts to the ul­ti­mate fore­play. Bread­win­ner 9.
