The Doctor is In: Medical Play (from the October 2017 Kink Crate)
The Doctor is In.
Can I take your temperature? Because you’re looking hot today!
Did you know that October is National Kink Month?! Congratulations to you, because you are celebrating in style! You have received a box full of amazing, kinky goodness. Halloween is almost upon us, and if the abundance of Naughty Nurse costumes lining the shelves at every store you
walk into is any indication, a medical play fantasy is a popular, fun way to explore role play! If you’re gaping at this box and have no idea where to start, look no further! I encourage you to embrace your inner Patrick Dempsey (or Kathrine Heigl) because you and your partner are about to play Doctor.
Before you get started.
Read the product descriptions and make sure you thoroughly understand everything in your new KinkCrate before you start shoving metal bits in your partner’s entertainment system.
For context (and inspiration), here is what was included in that crate.
- Graves vaginal speculum
Specula come in two forms: vaginal and anal. What you have here is a stainless-steel speculum (looks a bit like a duck’s bill) that is inserted into the vagina in the closed position. Widen the spreaders using the thumb grip on the top piece of the spreader and then lock in place by tightening the screw on the handle. (Try this a few times on your partner’s fist before you try it in their body). Because this is a stainless-steel speculum, you can use this in a similar way for anal examinations as well. You’ll need to thoroughly clean this device with warm, soapy water before going from anal penetration to vaginal penetration, however, to reduce the spread of bacteria and infection. You can even boil stainless steel to totally disinfect, if you so desire. Tip: If you’re using plastic, disposable vaginal specula, DO NOT use them for anal play.

- Foam under wrap
This blue, spongy roll is a medical grade foam tape that is commonly used underneath bandages or sports wraps that will be worn for a long time to help keep skin (or wounds) clean and dry.
- Let’s play doctor – kit
Black mesh bag includes medical face mask, hair net, and blue nitrile gloves.
- Bondage straps
Set of 6, black, adjustable, fabric straps with black plastic snap-clasps for closure; in various sizes. Use to limit movement and range of motion, bind your partner(s) to the chair or bed (or medical table), or create a type of total body bondage but using all straps simultaneously to bind hands and arms to theirs sides and bind their thighs/legs/ankles together. Note: Do not use around throat.
- Toybag Guide to Medical Play – handbook
In addition to the tips in this handbook, you’ve now got this handy-dandy toybag guide full of tricks and safety tricks from an experienced player to get you started on your medical play adventure.
One of the pillars of BDSM and kink is RACK – Risk Aware Consensual Kink. You can’t engage in medical play without fully informed consent from all parties involved. For consent to be fully informed you need to become aware of all the potential risks you might be exposing yourself and your partner(s) to, and to learn as much as you reasonably can about your new implements before you start.
Talk to your partner(s) before using any of these items on (or in) their body. Don’t wait until they’re blindfolded all strapped down before surprising them with an anal exam! Consent involves giving them information about what cards are in play so they have the opportunity to discuss their comfort and experience level with you. You also owe them the full-story about your level of experience and familiarity with these products. If you have never used a speculum on someone make sure you let them know that! Establish a safeword (a word you can use to stop all play immediately and address injury or other physical, mental, or emotional boundaries that may have been crossed) ahead of time. If you don’t already have a safeword, consider a “red-yellow-green” system; green means Yes, please keep going, I enjoy that you have my enthusiastic consent to continue, yellow means Okay, I’m not sure if I like it but I don’t know if I want to stop so let’s check in or I need to take a pause or a breather, or slow down a little, red means stop right now!
Tip: Sex Lab.
When trying new toys and tools for the first time that you’d like to add to your kinky fuckery, do it outside the bedroom (or other “scene”). Try the new item(s) in a well-lit room when everyone involved is fully alert and present, and with a clear head (not already in sub or dom-space or otherwise sexually aroused) and communicate about how things feel (physically, mentally, and emotionally). Take notes (literally) about what’s working and what isn’t, so you know if you need to do a little more research or practice before you integrate this new item or skill into your play time. This of this process like a laboratory environment for all your sex play – you’re gathering data about your skills, abilities, likes, dislikes, and boundaries. It’s okay to be awkward and clumsy (in fact, in Sex Lab, it’s encouraged) as you work your way toward competence and confidence with this new thing.
Set the scene.
Okay, you’ve done your homework, you’ve gotten consent and now you’re ready to play. Not yet, newbie! If you want to get everything you can out of your medical play experience, you have to take some time and set the scene!
Clean up your bed and the area around it – remember, medical facilities are sterile! If you don’t have an exam table at your house (hahaha, who does?! No, really. Who does? I wanna see!), you can take a couple of couch cushions and a couch pillow and place them on top of your bed. Bonus points if you wrap them in plastic wrap or even a tarp (you can use the plastic lining from a shower curtain, too) to get that crinkly feeling and then cover that with a white fitted sheet. This gives that clean, hospital bed or exam table feeling! It also lifts your partner’s rear end up a little, which will give you easy access for a thorough exam! Go ahead and lay out your bondage straps as well, so you have them at the ready.
Since you (probably) don’t have a medical exam table, then you (probably) don’t have a stainless steel sterile tray to lay out all your implements, either. That’s ok! Grab a cookie sheet, cover it in tin foil, then lay out some wax paper and paper towels on it. Now lay out everything you want to use on your “patient” during this exam. What should you include:
Your tools from this month’s crate: the speculum, the foam tape, and keep the Toybag guide handy.
Have you been a KinkCrate subscriber for awhile? Grab that Wartenberg wheel from the September crate! Now is the neurological tool’s time to shine. (If you didn’t get that crate, you can go to KinkCrate.com/Shop and pick one up! For more on how to use a Wartenberg wheel, check out the July KinkCrate Unboxing video at YouTube.com/ProfessorSex)
Throw in some latex or nitrile gloves (like the set in your kit). Not only are these an excellent safer-sex barrier method (especially for digital probing of anuses and vaginas), they really add to the “doctor’s office” feel of things.
If you’re going to try out using your speculum, lay out some water based lubricant (or, if you’re using it for anal play, grab a silicone lube instead) for easier, safer, and more comfortable insertion. You can also grab that luxurious tub of The Butters© and see how silky smooth it feels!
Have a first aid kit handy that includes: alcohol wipes and bandages (just in case you need them), safety sheers for getting through those straps quickly if the clasps get stuck in an emergency, quick-snap ice packs for pulled muscles.
You’re set to go, your partner is laying back (or strapped down) to your exam table, and you want to give them a head-toe-exam. Use your imagination! Here are just a few ideas to get you started:
Grab a tongue depressor (or popsicle stick) and make them say aaaaaaahhhhhh. Use a hard comb and check their tickle reflexes!
Play with the foam tape and try out some new bondage scenarios (you can even use it as a blindfold, or to strap a buzzing toy to their leg < For more on this, check out the June KinkCrate Unboxing video at YouTube.com/ProfessorSex where I talk about bondage tape).
Ask them to bend their knees and place their feet flat by their buttocks with their knees pointing up and their legs open wide. Grab the bondage straps and wrap one around each shin and thigh, binding them together, so that your partner can’t straighten their legs. In this position you can ask them to pull their knees to their chest, exposing their anus to you, or you can ask them to drop their knees to either side so that they’re splayed open for you.
Asthenolagnia – arousal from humiliation. Use your fingers and the speculum to examine their most intimate spaces. Describe what you’re
doing to them, or even put a long mirror in front of them and make them watch! The humiliation and vulnerability of being totally exposed to you, at your mercy, will have them wriggling and writhing; blushing and begging for more.
Please note that while humiliation may get one person’s motor running, it may be a trauma trigger for someone else. Please discuss the potential feelings of embarrassment that can come from medical play before beginning as part of your negotiation – and don’t forget the safeword!
For more on erotic humiliation, check out Princess Kali’s book Enough to Make You Blush – with accompanying workbook!
Take advantage of the after-Halloween sales and grab yourself one of those Naughty Nurse outfits I mentioned when we started!
I hope this has given you a good starting point for exploring this new fantasy and other types of role play. Can you think of other ways to play doctor? Do you have any questions about this fantasy or any others? Feel free to reach out to me! I’m happy to help.
