a self-contained kinky activity.

Real Life Examples

Georgio and Uphrasie have a standing date for Tuesdays for erotic role play scenes. 

Porsha, Belle, and Terry are nesting partners and enjoy several scenes a week without much planning, incorporating a higher level of power exchange and sometimes specific forms of play every time they have sex. 

Common Practices &


Everyone is different! You'll see this repeated throughout our website and glossary. Common practices and experiences involving scenes include, but certainly aren't limited to:

  • Planning out specifics in advance with the other person or people involved. 
  • Varying one’s usual levels of power exchange in-scene. (For example, total power exchange in scene and limited power exchange out of scene is a common shape for long-term D/s dynamics to take) 
  • Enacting scenes at play parties 
  • Viewing scenes as entirely separate from one’s sex life, or viewing the two things as intrinsically related.
