What is Age Play?

Age Play refers to a form of BDSM (Bondage, Discipline, Sadism and Masochism) role-play in which one partner takes on the role of a child, teenager, or elderly person, and the other partner takes on the role of a caretaker or authority figure such as a parent, teacher, or grandparent. The goal is to explore and experience power dynamics, submission and dominance, and create a dynamic in which one partner is “in control” and the other is “submissive.”
