Your favorite television show may be filled with intrigue and excitement, but could it be killing your sex life? Too much time in front of the idiot-box can drain our energy when it comes to other more active pursuits, so dedicate at least one night a week to spicing up your bedroom antics with some naughty games for grown-ups.
Sex games aren’t just fun – they can also be a great, relaxed way to keep the lines of communication open with your partner. Here are five of our favorites.
Sexy Truth or Dare
To play this game, all you need is some paper, pens, a bowl, and your imagination. Each of you writes down as many questions and dares as you can think of, putting them into the bowl. You then take turns to draw a piece of paper from the bowl and ask you lover, “truth or dare”. Guaranteed to get some giggles and inspire action.
Okay, you don’t exactly have to play Doctor, but you get the idea. Choose a role-play scenario you both would enjoy and then act it out. You can keep it simple, letting your imaginations do most of the work, or you can go all out, creating or purchases costumes to make the experience more tactile.
Have a deck of cards or a board game at home? You can strip to anything – all you need to do is adjust the rules slightly so articles of clothing are removed whenever someone loses a hand or a round. Strip poker is a classic, but you could also play strip Monopoly, strip chess, or even strip beer-pong. Use your imagination and get ready to rid yourself of your inhibitions.
Torrid 20 Questions
This game can be a lot of fun, but also offers a fun, low-pressure opportunity to reveal your fantasies and desires to each other. Think of your sexiest secret fantasy, and then invite your partner to guess what it is by asking 20 yes-or-no questions. They might ask, “does it involve role play” or “does it take place outdoors” or “would you be in control”. If they guess right, you might reward them with something they can’t get enough of.
Grown-Up Spin the Bottle
If you ever played spin the bottle as a teenager you’ll remember the rush and giddy excitement of having the bottle point at your crush when you spun it. As an adult, you can up the ante with this naughty classic, without needing to add more people to your private party… unless, of course, you’d like to. Grab a sheet of paper or cardboard around twice the size of a bottle of wine, and draw a large circle on it, dividing the circle in to eight segments. Take turns writing a sexy request or action in each segment, then place the bottle in the center and give it a spin.
