A healthy, happy sex life requires many things: Communication, vulnerability, trust and honesty. But what if you already have this solid foundation of intimacy, and still want to take things a step further? After all, that extra element of spice, excitement and naughtiness never hurt anyone! If that’s what you’re looking for, look no further! Here are a bunch of fun sex games to add that extra something to your sex life. And remember: before trying out any of these games, discuss them with your partner(s) and make sure that you have full, enthusiastic consent.
1. Shuffling Desires
This is a great game for couples who are in the initial stages of their relationship. Get in bed with your partner and write down your top 5 fantasies in slips of paper. Ask your partner to do the same! Now, without revealing it to each other, fold up the slips, toss them into a bowl and pick them out one by one. Each time your slip comes up, talk more about it. This is a comfortable way to learn more about your partner’s fantasies, and to share your own! By the end of it, you and your partner may even be tempted to try out one of the fantasies!
2. Role Play
Do you often find yourself imagining sexual situations that involve authority figures or being in authority? Maybe you are intrigued by the sexual tensions that come with power dynamics. A nurse and doctor, a boss and employee, a policeman and rulebreaker… the possibilities are endless! While having sex within a real-life power-dynamic is not ideal, a role-play is a safe way to explore these fantasies with your partner! Order some costumes, get into the role of your characters, and come up with fun plots that end with sexy twists.
3. Would You Rather?
You may have played ‘would you rather’ as a child: a game where you have to pick between two imaginary situations and state which you would rather do. These imaginary situations can range from extreme to bizarre. So, why not put a sexy spin to this old fashioned game? Present your partner with two sexual situations, and ask them which they would rather do. For all you dirty talkers out there, this one’s for you! Maybe whisper the questions into your partner’s ear, or punctuate it with some suggestive looks and touching. It’s bound to turn up the heat!
4. Truth or Dare?
Another sleepover favorite. But this time, it’s adults only. Use the ‘truths’ to find out more about your partner and their desires. And slowly start ‘daring’ them to kiss you, touch you or maybe even something you haven’t had the courage to ask for yet!
5. Strip Games
Strip poker is probably the best known sexy game, and for good reason- combining sex with a beloved card game? Fun! If you’re creative enough, there are other games that add to the slow tease of stripping just as well. You could have a strip trivia night- each time you get an answer wrong, you take off a piece of clothing and maybe take a shot! Or how about a strip board-game? Every round you lose, you lose some clothes too! This is a great way to get competitive, a little drunk and be naked in no time.
6. Sexy Treasure Hunt
Got a long, free Sunday? Feeling creative and sexy? Then this one may be for you! Get innovative and arrange a mini ‘sex treasure hunt’ around your house. Leave notes in different parts of the house and write a sexy request, thought or memory in each of them, and end it with a clue to find the next note. The last note leads to final treasure- which is you! Allow the notes to build up tension, so that when your partner finally ‘finds’ you, the two of you share sexy-times that are truly to be treasured!
7. Blindfolds and Something Sweet
Ice cream and sex? It doesn’t get more decadent than that. Blindfold your partner and feed them ice-cream, and then take turns. This can be slow and sensual, maybe let the ice-cream drip down and lick it off. The blindfolded partner’s sense of taste and touch will be enhanced by the fact that they cannot see, making it all the more exciting! The ice-cream may be vanilla, but the sex surely doesn’t have to be.
8. A Sexy Outdoor Tease
Put on your sexiest inner-wear beneath your regular clothes and… go for a walk with your partner! While this may seem counter-intuitive, having a sexy secret in public that only the two of you know of, can be incredibly exciting! The longer the walk, the more desperate you will be to get back home and be seen in only that tempting inner-wear.
9. Bucket List
No one wants to grow old with regrets, and that applies to your sex life too! Make a bucket list with all those desires that you haven’t acted on yet. Maybe you could knock some off the list with your partner if they are willing! Common sexual bucket list items include threesomes, BDSM, tantra or really anything that you want to try and haven’t yet!
10. Never Have I Ever
Re-fashioning drinking games to spice up our sex lives has never been more fun! Play a game of Never Have I Ever with all the sexual things that you haven’t ‘ever’ tried. But maybe instead of taking a shot, you could go ahead and finally try it out!
11. Find The Spot
Think of a spot on your body, and don’t tell your partner! Your partner’s job is to kiss every part of your body until they find the spot you have in mind. Once they find the spot, think of a new spot, and the game starts again. By the end of it, hopefully you would’ve been kissed all over!
12. Distance Breeds Affection
Lay on your bed (maybe naked!) while your partner stands at the doorway. Now, start asking your partner questions- this could be general trivia, questions about you, or any question that has right and wrong answers. With each right answer your partner takes one step closer. And if they get a wrong answer? Oops! They take a step back. If you really want to tease them, make the questions harder: they’ll be aching to get close to you!
13. Mime Artists
Face each other and take turns to touch or kiss each other. The rule of the game is that whatever you do, your partner has to mimic it! Build it up slowly, and turn up the heat!
14. Mirror, Mirror
Do you and your partner enjoy visual stimulation? Is the thought of seeing yourselves during sex something that arouses you? Then find the biggest mirror in your house and get busy in front of it! It can be especially exciting for both partners to face the mirror; with one partner standing behind the other. Neck kisses, touching, and sex from behind, the possibilities are endless! You may just fall in love with the sight of your bodies together.
15. And The Winner Is…?
Bring out your competitive side! Get undressed and get into a pillow fight, playful-wrestling, tickling competition or even a friendly arm-wrestle. Whoever ‘wins’ gets to initiate sex! Being naked and physically competing with each other would’ve already gotten your blood flowing and endorphins rushing. And since it ends in sex, here’s a game where everyone gets a prize at the end!
16. Hide Me, Seek Me
A childhood favorite game, with an adult twist on it! Get into lingerie, or get naked and hide somewhere in your house. Your partner has to ‘seek’ you out, and when they do, get ready to play dirty!
17. Guessing Game
How well does your partner really know your body? Blindfold them, and guide their hand to a part of your body. Now, ask them to guess which part of your body it is. This way, you get to tease your partner and also have their hands all over your body. Doesn’t get better than that!
18. Bring Out The Paints
Our bodies are truly canvases and this sex game is a testament to that. Get some skin-safe markers and paints and draw, paint, or write affectionate (or sexy) messages on each other’s bodies. This is an artistic and creative way to let your partner know how much you appreciate them.
19. And A Shot of Jealousy
While insecurity is not good for relationships, a little hint of jealousy could be fun. Describe a sexual interaction with a past partner, get into vivid detail, and make your partner want you even more. For couples in an open relationship, talking about current sexual interactions with others could also spice things up.
Feeling risque? Bring a blindfold into the equation! Being blindfolded can heighten all your other senses in the most delicious way. And for all those who are romantic-at-heart, being blindfolded can also feel like a true exercise of trust and intimacy.
For anyone who enjoys a dominant-submissive equation is sex, being restrained, or restraining your partner can feel incredibly sexy. Handcuff your partner with their hands over their head, (or have this done to you.) Since they can’t move their hands or touch you, the set-up is perfect for teasing and tempting!
22. Intimate Voyeurs
This game is a simple one, but don’t underestimate it! Sit across from each other on the bed and pleasure yourself. The rule is to resist from touching each other until you simply can’t handle it anymore! Watching the other person moan and buck, all while doing the same yourself, has a unique irresistibility to it.
23. Out in The Open
Outdoors sex is a fantasy for many people. While this may not be feasible, you could drive around to a quiet, tucked away spot outdoors to make out, talk dirty and touch each other. The taboo, risky nature of getting sexual in public makes this really exciting for some. But be careful and don’t do anything you aren’t comfortable with!
24. Let Me Feed You
Food and sex is a time-tested combination. Blindfold your partner and slowly feed them a delicious snack. Chocolates work perfectly for this, since you can also lick it off of each other’s fingers (or bodies!) as it starts to melt. Small fruits like strawberries and grapes can also feel very sensual. Let them taste your fingers once you are done, and maybe even other parts of your body!
25. TV & Chill
Log off from your favorite streaming site, and watch TV: commercial breaks don’t have to be annoying! Whenever an ad comes on, use that time to kiss, touch or tease your partner. Build tension like this throughout the movie, so that by the time it is done, you won’t be able to keep your hands to yourself!
So these are our 25 sex-games for couples to try! Sit down with your partner and see which games excite both of you the most. So, what are you waiting for?
