This is pretty geeky, but here are some ideas for performing a sexual re-enactment of the myth of Diana and Orion. (Diana is also called Artemis and Selene.) There’s no definitive form of the myth, so feel free to improvise.
(If you haven’t read the how to do sexual role-playing post yet you might want to start there. Don’t worry… it’s normal to feel a little silly and awkward at first!)
Why it’s fun:
- Very physical. You’ll be running, chasing, shooting, sword-fighting, and hiding. Excitement is better than relaxation for female arousal!
- Brainy. You can be smarty-pants and read the myth together before you role-play.
Costumes: Diana needs a crown and a bow-and-arrow — we used a nerf gun. Orion needs a belt and sword. We were otherwise naked, but you can add more clothing if you like.
Characters: The husband plays Orion and the shepherd Endymion; the wife plays Diana and the Pleiades (The Seven Sisters).
Setting: This scenario benefits from having enough space to run around, shoot, and hide! You may also want some blankets to lie on and hide under.
For our role-playing we included eight scenes. Each scene lasted three to five minutes, except the final scene which went longer.
Scene 1: Diana and Endymion. Endymion the shepherd lays on his back and sleeps while Diana kisses him. Diana will run away if Endymion (or any part of him!) wakes up, so he does his best to hold completely still.
Scene 2: Diana discovers Orion while hunting. Diana chases Orion and shoots at him with her bow-and-arrow, until she runs out of ammo.
Scene 3: Orion chases the Pleiades. When Diana runs out of ammo Orion turns on her and her companions, chasing them down. The Pleiades are forbidden to even look upon a man, so when Orion catches one she is punished with a spank. After all Seven Sisters are caught and spanked they flee into the night sky.
Scene 4: Diana and Orion fall in love. Diana is impressed by Orion’s prowess and admires him verbally and physically. Orion is overwhelmed by Diana’s beauty and hunting ability and praises her as well.
Scene 5: Diana and Orion hunt together. The couple hunts together, but they’re frequently forced hide from Diana’s brother Apollo who is searching for them. As they roam the forest they take cover in every possible hiding place and make love, but are always forced to flee by Apollo before their love can be fully satisfied. Orion narrowly escapes when Apollo finally catches them.
Scene 6: Apollo challenges Diana. Apollo challenges Diana to an archery contest, which she readily accepts because she is the greatest archer in the world. Apollo challenges her to hit a distant object bobbing in the ocean and she does so, without realizing until too late that the target is her beloved Orion who had gone for a swim.
Scene 7: Diana attempts to revive Orion. Diana uses every power at her disposal to attempt to awaken her lover Orion. Fortunately, her sexual abilities seem to get a response from him, but will it be enough?
Scene 8: Diana rides Orion into the sky. The only way to save Orion’s life is for Diana to ride him into the sky where they explode into stars. They live together forever in the sky, Diana the Moon and Orion the constellation.
Let us know if you try this, or think of a way to adapt another myth into a sexual experience!
Be careful role-playing as classical gods. It was common practice in ancient mystery cults to roleplay as gods in order to get in touch with them (aka demons)
Or, conversely, one could just be careful to not join an ancient mystery cult.
I applaud you, El Fury and Sexy Corte, for your ability to be naked and unashamed, and for your spirit of adventure and play, and for your courage to even think of such fun and meaningful activities to do together! And for sharing them in a safe and inspiring way.
Thank you! Soon we’ll have the kids in school for hours at a time and we’ll be able to do even crazier things, haha
Your point is well-taken. 1 Corinthians 8 is pretty on-point here, IMHO. Follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, and don’t worship pagan “gods”.
This sounds like such a fun idea. Thank you!
The myth of Cupid (or Eros) and Psyche could also be adapted for this purpose (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cupid_and_Psyche). Here is a very simplified and somewhat modified version of the myth for roleplay.
Costumes: Cupid will need a bow-and-arrow at the beginning of Scene 1 (or a nerf gun like y’all did). Psyche will need a blindfold and something to represent the “hot oil” spilled on Cupid in Scene 3 (coconut oil maybe?). Psyche will also need some lingerie or a short skirt (see Scenes 4, 5, and 6).
Characters: The husband plays Cupid and the West Wind; the wife plays Psyche.
Setting: Scene 1 occurs outside the bedroom. Scenes 4 and 5 can be acted out by walking from the bedroom (or whatever room works best as Mt. Olympus) to the closet and then back again. Remaining scenes occur in the bedroom.
Scene 1: Cupid and Psyche. Venus is offended by the beauty of the mortal woman Psyche, and commissions her son Cupid to work her revenge. Cupid is sent to shoot Psyche with an arrow so that she may fall in love with something hideous. He instead scratches himself with his own dart, which makes him fall deeply in love with Psyche and disobey his mother’s order.
Psyche has yet to find love and Cupid has the West Wind ferry her to his chambers. Cupid is afraid though that if she knows he is Cupid, the son of Venus, it will ruin things. He therefore has her wear a blindfold as he seduces her and proposes marriage.
Scene 2: Love begins. Psyche accepts Cupid’s proposal and he leads the blindfolded Psyche to the bedroom to consummate their union. Overcome with love for her he can think of nothing else but pleasuring her with his hands and mouth. After a time, she is overcome with pleasure and climaxes. After the intense focus on pleasuring Psyche, a tired Cupid snuggles with his lover and falls asleep.
Scene 3: Love Interrupted. After her climax intense curiosity overcomes Psyche about the identity of her new husband. She removes her blindfold to discover it is Cupid! In her surprise she spills hot oil from the lamp and wakes him. He flees as he is hurt and feels she has rejected him. She pursues but cannot catch him.
Scene 4: The Underworld: Desperate to find her love Psyche seeks out Venus on Mt. Olympus, who is hiding Cupid from her as he recovers from his injury. Venus forces Psyche to complete a monumental task. She is to take a box and obtain in it a dose of the beauty of Proserpina (Persephone), queen of the underworld*.
She journeys to the underworld and the queen seemingly grants her request, sending her back with the box of beauty as well as cladding her in the finest raiments**.
However, when she returns and opens the box she finds that it is full of lies designed to make her doubt her own beauty and the desire of her lover for her. The onslaught causes her to faint.
Scene 5: The Reunion. Cupid rebukes his mother as he emerges from his convalescence to discover Psyche’s limp body before him. He opens Psyche’s mouth*** and gives her a few drops of ambrosia*** to wake her and grant her immortality. He declares his love for her openly in front of the other gods and celebrations begin.
Scene 6: Finale. After their wedding feast in Olympus the two lovers head to Cupid’s bedroom. They stand before a large mirror as Cupid uses his hands to arouses his bride while whispering sweet nothings into her ear. He tells her to never again doubt her own beauty or the effect she has on him.
To prove his words he has her bend over in front of the mirror and pulls up her skirt (as she is so alluring he cannot wait till she is naked). As she watches via the mirror he enters her and passionately rides her until he climaxes.
*aka the closet. LOL
***just in case this isn’t clear I am referring to oral sex and pre-ejaculate respectively
@SLS, that’s awesome, thank you for writing that up! I’m going to share it as its own post later (unless you object).
We’re going to have to try this one ourselves.
Please feel free to share it. Happy to help.
Hope you guys enjoy it.
I agree with Joshua here. It’s concerning that more people don’t see how wrong this is. These “mythical” “gods” are not fiction at all. But fallen Angel’s. Demons. Evil spirits. And to go all out with the story line and the names and acting it out all while initiating sexual intercourse . I see all kinds of red flags as to why a Christian would not want to open up this can of worms upon yourselves and marriage.
There’s Bible verses that I will gather together and post here to back up the reasons why this shouldn’t be taken lightly. I realize this is your blog and while you can put on here as you like but I do hope you stop and consider staying away from such stories like these one and the cupid one. And be aware of the influence you have on other married lives .
I will be interested in having a conversation about this if you like.
I definitely understand your perspective, and you should absolutely stay away from anything that hinders your walk with God or violates your conscience. See my comment here: https://marriedchristiansex.com/blog/mental-techniques/role-playing-diana-orion/#comment-23592
