Resus(citation) Role Playing: Facts and Tips

Hands Performing CPR

The resus fetish is when a person derives a sexual thrill from the idea of being resuscitated after an accident, heart attack, or other near-death experience. Or conversely, the thrill is in watching a resuscitation on someone else or being the one who saves him or her.

There are no doubt inner sanctums where practitioners of this kink have found each other, but I haven’t found it. There is no doubt some secrecy on the subject because of the perceived extreme nature of the practice.

The idea of CPR and other medical resuscitation techniques as erotic does show up in small dribbles as part of edge play, medical or hospital kink, and erotic asphyxiation play. All of these kinks can be extremely dangerous, so people who are turned on by these things often face judgement or condemnation as well as the risks inherent in their practice. It can be tricky to find the right partner.

But you don’t have to go without! Since very few folks with a resuscitation fetish are willing to risk their own or a partner’s unconsciousness before resus, the kink is mostly played out by role play and visual resources.

You can indulge this fantasy easily, because it’s everywhere.

There are plenty of porn videos on the subject to keep you going for years, but don’t neglect the real deal resources that are everywhere.

You can find vintage medical books at antiquarian bookstores that detail resus procedures and have cool diagrams and illustrations. There are hospital soap operas with ongoing dramas that you can get emotionally involved in, getting totally lost in the fantasies. There are stories of superheroes in every Reader’s Digest edition—stories where lives were saved with all the juicy details. From war movies to Shakespeare, accounts of resuscitation are everywhere.

Whether you’re alone with your fantasy, or with a willing partner, you can find all kinds of fodder to fuel your imagination!

Look for enthusiastic participants among a broad range of kinksters.

It’s true, I usually suggest getting specific with online dating, and you’ll still want to be clear about what you want and desire in your profile. But if you say you are looking for someone with a matching fetish to play resus with, you might come up empty handed.

In this case I advise you to look among role-play enthusiasts. You should also look among kink lovers who have a range of medical fetishes. They might be willing to add resuscitation role play to their practice of nurse outfits and play surgery or medical torture play.

Resus role play works one on one, but it’s also great for group scenes.

If group sex is your thing, or a fantasy you’ve always wanted to explore, consider the amazing possibilities of resus role play for multiple people.

It can get really elaborate, with everyone from hospital triage to paramedics and surgeons.

You can also keep it simple—her naked and spreadeagled, feigning unconsciousness, in a hospital gown. Simple, and simply hot.

Prioritize the safety of everyone involved.

Some of us love danger or just happen to be totally turned on by something that can be dangerous—fair enough. But play responsibly. Use play acting over inducing unconsciousness. No thrill is worth the risk.

Have fun with staging and devices.

I found it super sexy to have two guys carrying me towards my lover on a stretcher. A gynecological table with stirrups has a lot of sexy possibilities. Doing up a van like an ambulance, and playing in the back of it—there are so many ways to set up this fantasy.

Incorporating the fantasy with your partner’s kinks can make great dramas to play out. For example, if she loves to be restrained, why not role play a coma and set up an IV stand and tape tubing across her naked body?

For many resuscitation kink lovers, the urgency and the performance of CPR are the key factors in this particular sex drama. The defibrillator is also key.

You can expand the drama indefinitely towards the big moment, and in the meantime experiment with all kinds of medical fetish toys and tools. Incorporating sensation play, torture, bondage, and more gives unlimited possibilities.
