Thank you to the more than 100 readers who participated in the recent poll, making it possibly one of the largest surveys of erotic schoolgirl roleplaying ever undertaken!
I asked which character you’d choose, if you could go away for a roleplaying weekend, where you act out your favourite schoolgirl fantasy. And the results were very interesting indeed…
First though, how did I choose the character archetypes?
I decided to use two belief spectrums, attitudes that vary between individuals. The first will be familiar to readers of this blog: Dominance and Submission. Put crudely, dominant individuals enjoy exerting their power, and submissive individuals enjoy following rules and challenging the boundaries.
The second spectrum was Order and Chaos, where believers in order respect and uphold social conventions and the expected rules of behaviour, whilst believers in chaos get a thrill from mischief, outrage and subversion.
This application of personality types is actually a useful tip for writers. In my stories I often plot different beliefs, traits and their opposites to help generate contrasting and varied characters.
So, the possible combinations on two axes give us 4 categories, as shown in the quadrants below:
Let’s start with the Seducers, these are dominant, self-confident individuals who enjoy disrupting social conventions…
One of these, The Siren, proved the most popular choice, with over a quarter of all votes cast. It seems many readers identify with the sassy, precocious nymphet. Perhaps this is not surprising, after all, who wouldn’t want to don a mask that bestowed allure and limitless sexual confidence? Especially one that stopped you caring about what others thought of your sexual self.
A similar character, The Seductress, also proved popular. Unlike the Siren, her erotic interest is in her peers rather than authority figures. If you were so inclined, I imagine one could make quite a lot of intimate acquaintances during a long roleplaying weekend. Altogether, 4 in every 10 of you said you’d like play either a Siren or Seductress.
The second most popular choice was one of the trouble-makers, The Minx. For her, being at school is opportunity to play pranks and get up to mischief. She knows getting caught means a sore bottom, but she secretly quite likes having her panties pulled down, so it’s a price she’s happy to pay.
Another trouble-maker is The Thief, agile and quick-witted, her chaos is more considered: she loves to plan and pull off daring heists. It’s even better if she can pin the blame on some poor innocent victim, and watch their bottom being warmed instead of hers.
The third trouble-maker is The Provocateur, she loves everything about spankings, and relishes getting herself and others into trouble. It’s even better when her mischief results in everyone having their bottom whacked. Collectively 3 in every 10 of you said if you went to a roleplaying weekend, you’d want to play one of the trouble-makers!
Of course, not everyone is bold enough to seduce or subvert, which may explain the popularity of The Wallflower, who was chosen by 13% of respondents. Her preference is to sit back and watch the punishments of others, what if you could do that in real-life rather than vicariously through the internet? Quite a lot of you would like to watch it seems.
Another character who likes to observe is the Teacher’s Pet, but her observations are motivated by a sense of duty, a desire to curry favour with those in authority, and see that good order is maintained. 8% of you would like to be Teacher’s eyes and ears, perhaps because you were always such good little girls at school, or maybe because the reward for telling tales is getting to witness the naughty getting their bottoms smacked. Overall, 2 in every 10 of you chose characters that like to watch.
The final category of roles I’ve termed Royalty, these are dominant individuals at the top of the social tree, who expect to be respected.
8% of you wanted to be The Princess, no doubt relishing the prospect of using their femininity and grace to get away with some rather bratty behaviour. A Princess considers herself above spankings, but she may well find during a weekend away that she finally gets her long overdue lesson in humility, one delivered with her skirt up and panties down.
Then last but not least is The Domina, she uses her authority more proactively, to ensure the obedience of others. Around her, others do what they’re told, often erotic, humiliating things, all for her personal satisfaction. Perhaps reflecting that more readers of this blog have a submissive rather than dominant preference, only 4% of respondents said they’d play a domme.
So, if you could go away and become a schoolgirl for a weekend, what might you expect?
If we apply the results to a representative classroom of 20 ladies, we’d expect to enter an atmosphere of smouldering sexual tension, with 5 sirens and 3 seductresses. There would also be considerable mischief in the air, with 4 minxes, a thief and a provocateur lurking, each just waiting for the right opportunity to sow chaos and suspicion.
Not everyone is intent on causing trouble though, sitting quietly at the back of the class will be 3 wallflowers, and at the front, someone who wants to be the Teacher’s Pet. There will also be a single princess, already considering herself to be the top girl of the class, and a domina, who knows she’s top girl. You could have a lot of fun being the only domme in a dormitory of submissive and adventurous girls.
And all this might leave you with one more question… how come no-one runs weekends like this?
