After a long week of work, it’s Friday night and you’ve finally shut down your laptop and turned off your email. You need to blow off some steam (and, to be honest, you deserve it), but you can’t just Netflix and chill with your S.O. again. I mean, you’ve already watched the latest season of The Circle, so what else is there to watch? It’s time to try something new and, in my opinion, a lot more fun, and that’s where sex games come in.
Okay, but what the hell is a “sex game”? Well, they’re like traditional games, but they have a little something extra. Amy Levine, a sex coach and certified sexuality educator in New York City, says that “fun, safe, and consensual” can mean almost anything. And unlike watching New Girl for the millionth time (don’t judge me), sex games actually bring you and your partner closer together on more than one level and let you bond in a fun way.
“It’s time set aside to pay attention to each other’s wants, needs, desires, and interests,” says Levine. Also, “playing a game allows you to be present,” and in our world of constant distractions, taking the time to be present is, well, a game-changer for your relationship (and sexual connection).
You can add a naughty twist to classic games like Twister and poker, or you can play one of the many games that encourage foreplay, teasing, and just having a good time. Surprise your S.O. with a weekend treat by ordering one of these games from Amazon or Lovehoney (don’t worry, it comes in discreet packaging). You’ll be more excited than ever for game night. Here is a list of 32 of the most popular sex games for couples.
LOOPY Date Night Box
In this game, you spin the spinner and choose a card from a certain category. And…the satin blindfold that comes with it is a fun extra. You’ll laugh, kiss, and who knows what else when you play this game!
Love Language: Card Game
If you like being close emotionally, we can help you too. Couples psychologists came up with these 150 conversation starters, which will help you learn a lot about your S.O.
There are five categories of questions: Family, Intimacy, Couple, Individual, and Past & Future. You can choose what you want to know more about or what you think will bring you closer. If you add a bottle of wine to this, you’ll have the perfect date night.
Poker for Couples
It’s like poker, but it’s hot. At first, it looks like regular poker. You have to get a better hand than your “opponent,” but this type of poker has different risks and rewards.
One review on Amazon says, “In order of how to use them, these reward cards are called strip, cuddle, nude, hot, lust, and climax. This lets the players slowly build up their interest and arousal with rewards that get more and more risqué until they reach the ultimate climax reward.” Oh, man.
Oh! Kinky Confessions Truth or Dare Card Game
Truth or Dare has been a popular game for a long time. It makes the room more sexually charged wherever it goes. With this version, you don’t even have to come up with the questions yourself. You can just let the cards do it all (and, well, blame it all on the cards as well). With “Would you rather”-style questions, this game will teach you everything you need to know about what your partner likes in the bedroom by the end of the night.
Oral Fun Board Game
This is “the game of eating out while staying in,” as it says on the box. And you probably don’t need to know anything else.
The game’s creators suggest having flavoured lube, small food items (cherries, strawberries, or something similar), ice cubes, something fizzy to drink, and a blindfold. So make sure you have what you need.
Talk, Flirt, Dare
Need a reason to try this sexual game? How about more than 5,000? That many people have given Talk, Flirt, Dare five stars on Amazon. It’s really that good.
There are three levels in the game—talk, flirt, and dare—so you can choose how close you want to get. Talk is great for parties, Flirt can help take a new relationship to the next level, and Dare will rekindle the spark between you and your partner if you’ve been together for a long time.
All Night Love Affair Dice And Card Game
If you want to change things up but don’t have any good ideas, this game will help. Roll the dice, choose a card, and follow the instructions on the card. After a few rounds of licking, playing with sex toys, and bonding to get things going, you’ll forget you were playing a game.
Nookii: The Hot Game for Passionate Lovers
This best-selling sexy card game lets you play around your partner’s body in three different ways and on three levels of intensity. Warm up with the “Mmm” cards, which are about touching and teasing, and then move on to the “Ooh” cards, which have mini-role-play scenarios. The “Aah” cards mark the end of the game. This game also has a blindfold (score), and you have to do each action within a certain amount of time, so… the pressure’s on.
Touch & Tell
This sex game for couples is sure to make you think about each other and make you feel closer to each other. With 250 cards that tell you what to “touch” or “say,” it won’t take long for you to get closer.
