Sexy Costume ideas: Animal Costumes


A popular Halloween choice and a sultry option for the bedroom, a sexy animal costume can be a super hot way to surprise your partner (and to send your confidence through the roof).

Surprising sensual animal costumes include everything from this cute sexy mouse to this fierce leopard print bodystocking. Plus, there’s always the wildly popular sexy bunny costume.

Sexy Costume ideas: Fantasy and Role Play Costumes


There are no limits to role play during sex! (As long as it follows the SSC rule of being safe, sane and consensual). And that means there are probably tonnes of fantasy and role play costumes out there which you didn’t even know existed.

Popular options include our catwoman costume, sexy pirate outfit, sexy goddess costume and plaid skirt options, while some more obscure choices include a captive princess, warrior goddess superhero, sexy devil and Bavarian cutie costume.

Plus, who knew sexy football costumes existed? If you’re partner’s into the sport, why not surprise them with a themed outfit, like our sexy football costume, or even a sexy referee?

Sexy Couple’s Costume ideas

Fancy dressing up together with your partner in the bedroom? You can take inspiration from our costumes above and expand on the theme: why not try a doctor and nurse, a nurse and a patient, or a sexy secretary with their colleague or a customer?

For some seductive couple’s costume ideas, take a look at Lovehoney’s French maids and butlers sets, which match nicely together. Alternatively, go for some twinning uniform sets, like a flirty firefighter and sexy fireman, or matching sexy cop costumes.

Let your imagination run wild!

Sexy Costume ideas for men

Men needn’t be left out of the sexy costume fun, as there are plenty of flirty outfit options available for guys too.

Uniform costumes are of course popular with both men and women, with some sexy male options including a classic fireman’s outfit and flirty fireman suspenders, as well as sexy cop costumes for men and sexy sailor outfits.

Fantasy and role play costumes are also a big hit with the gents. Try a macho male stripper or a kinky cowboy costume.

Kinky Outfit ideas

If you don’t want to go for a specific costume, but still want to look and feel hot as hell, then a kinky outfit could be just the answer.
