Melissa Rauch, best known for playing Howard’s wife Bernadette on The Big Bang Theory, traded in her character’s geek chic attire for some S&M-inspired garb in the December issue of Maxim.

Melissa Rauch Poses For 'Maxim'

Rauch, 33, modeled a trio of all black looks for the men’s magazine. In one photo, the comic actress sports a little black beaded dress with a revealing neckline. For another picture, Rauch poses holding a rope in a dominatrix-themed top, a sheer black high-waisted skirt and heels. In a bra top, peplum skirt and elbow-length gloves, Rauch is pictured leaning on a balcony.

Melissa Rauch On Her 'Big Bang Theory' Character

Prior to establishing herself as a regular on The Big Bang Theory, Rauch appeared on HBO’s True Blood. While her True Blood character Summer might be more comfortable in Rauch’s Maxim shoot outfits, the actress admits that she and Bernadette do have a thing or two in common.

“I am similar to Bernadette in that we both spent some time waiting tables. I worked at a sports bar in New York City during college,” Rauch told Maxim. It was before fantasy football was online, so people would come in with their notebooks. One time I spilled a pitcher of beer all over someone's fantasy notebook. It really f–ked up his draft."

What doesn’t Rauch have in common with her character on the hit CBS sitcom? “I’ve actually never been [to the Cheesecake Factory].”
