Whether acting out a particular fantasy, fulfilling a specific kink, or merely looking for an outfit that can make private time more thrilling, costumes can be integrated into one's life to add a bit of spice. 

But just as integral to the outfit is the relationship between the partners. Sometimes, in the bedroom, there are those couples who want to explore the darker side of their sexuality, to share their edgier fantasies with those with whom they are intimate. Recent studies indicate that almost half the adult population has fantasies of either dominating their partner, or of being dominated - and today's modern culture seems to bear this out.

Witness the success of the softcore erotic novel "50 Shades of Grey," and you begin to realize that there are those out there hungering to explore sides of their sexuality that was once considered taboo.

Many adults wish to incorporate power play into their intimate moments, and the fantasy of being helpless before a much more dominant personality, of submitting to a will more powerful than your own and having no choice in the matter, is becoming a once-forbidden subject that is finally being brought out into the light for discussion and consideration.

Part of exploring this darker side of your personality is the appropriate attire - after all, your day-to-day denim-jeans-and-worn-tee-shirt combination might not be appropriate for enacting a power play scenario. This is where fetish clothing can come into play. By incorporating the edgier outfits available into the bedroom, you can explore your more dominant side - or, perhaps, finally submit to the will of your partner. Combining the fantastic elements of the traditional costume with the eroticism of the forbidden, fetish clothing can take a physical relationship to the next level.

Do not instantly leap to a stereotypical conclusion - fetish clothing does not necessarily consist of a leather hood with a zipper over the mouth and a pair of manacles dangling from the ceiling. Rather, they provide an edgy, fantastic element that allows one to explore their darker side. Some fetish clothing borrows elements from other fantasy costumes, such as a cowboy assless chaps (with a jockstrap to prolong the anticipation). Others adapt "traditional" lingerie with different materials and cuts to emphasize the edgy nature, such as a vinyl miniskirt (with or without complementary fishnet stockings). Still others take the fantasy further, such as a cupless teddy in black leather and thigh-high boots. See-through fabrics can be used to add a titillation factor, and fishnets with weaves ranging from the tight to wide diamonds can be added to display just how saucy you actually are. The point is not to dress as though you just escaped from the set of a BDSM video shoot, but rather to add a spicy edge to your play in the bedroom.

Of course, for those couples for whom vaguely edgy just won't do, there are even more extreme outfits that leave little to the imagination and much to the fantastic play. For him you can find edgy tormentor outfits with a collar and a jock for those times in which their partners are helpless in their grasp, while dominant lady can display her power with a fishnet bustier and vinyl front-zip shorts. And of course what self-respecting Dom or Domme would be without a collar and a leash to make sure their favored pet doesn't wander too far astray?

Conversely, the submissive in you can opt to don a vinyl strappy teddy, or a collar with a set of chains firmly attached to a pair of cuffs. And it's not just for the women - today there is a wide range of chastity belts, complete with locks and keys, for those men who thrill to being under the control of those they love.

There are bondage harnesses available for both men and women that provide just the right amount of constriction and restraint while still providing a free range of movement. And best of all, for those who are seeking a public-yet-discrete domination, these harnesses can be worn underneath clothing to create a situation where both partners knows EXACTLY what's going on under that prim-and-proper attire to the exclusion of everyone else at the party.

Fetish clothing can be used to add a bit of edgy spice to a vanilla relationship, or it can be used to explore the darker side of one's own soul. Today, the only limits are those of your imagination.
