This type of necrophiliac prefers for their partner to actually be alive, but pretending to be dead. Aggrawal classifies this as "mildly pathological" and states that some role players ask their partner to cover their body with cosmetics to resemble a corpse. Others may act out scenarios involving vampirism and resurrection. He also cites A Textbook Case of Psychosexual Disorders as evidence that some brothels in Paris cater to role playing necrophiliacs by making up their prostitutes like a corpse inside a coffin.
