4 Sex Games to Spice Things Up in the Bedroom
Karaz’s Shahrazad collects a list of games that give fun a whole new meaning.
Introducing sex games to the bedroom is a sure-fire way to spice things up. It breaks the routine and allows you to get to know one another more intimately: your partner’s likes, dislikes, fantasies and so on. Better yet, it opens up a line of communication to discuss topics that in other settings might seem too awkward or intimidating to do. We’ve put together a list of four games to try that will expand your sexual experiences and take sex to a new level of fun.
1. Sexy Cards
If you’re a fan of card games, you’ll like this one. You’ll need a deck of cards, where you and your partner will assign a sexy meaning to each suit. For example, hearts can represent a massage, clubs a kiss, and so on. The numbers of the cards will represent how long you have to do each act. Take turns to pull out cards and perform them on each other. So for example, if you pull out a seven of hearts, you need to give your partner a 7-minute massage session. A two of clubs will mean a two second kissing session and so on.
2. One Step Forward, One Step Back
This game is a great way to get to know what your partner likes and dislikes. Start off by lying naked in bed, with your partner at the door. Then ask questions about yourself (what you like, what you don’t like, what your favorite position is, your dream vacation spot—this could be sexual and personal). For every right answer, your partner will take one step forward…for every wrong answer; they’ll take one step back. The aim of the game is to get to the bed, and in the meantime, it’ll be an informational session and a teasing form of foreplay.
Hide things that you want your partner to use on you around the house. This could be anything from chocolate syrup, to a blindfold, flavored lube, massage oil, etc. Every time one is found, use it on each other before looking for the next one.
4. 20 Questions—The Sexy Version
If you find yourself taking a ride around town or just want something fun to do, ask each other 20 yes-or-no questions to figure out each other’s fantasies. Before you begin, have a sex scenario you want to try in mind and have your partner start asking questions to guess what it is. For example, is it indoors? Does it involve toys? Can you see what I’m doing? It’s an easy way to discuss fantasies you otherwise might be too shy to ask to try.
