Sexy Games (You Won't Play After Christmas Dinner)
on Dec 20, 2017
Those lost days between Christmas and New Year (what I like to refer to as the Christmas Perineum or the Holiday Taint) can be a frustrating time.
Are you fed up with vol-au-vents? Have you seen a certain British secret agent film series a few too many times? Have you had to explain to your aunts and uncles what your degree means again? Has it been too many days since your last orgasm?
Returning home for Christmas can feel uncomfortable after living independently as a student, especially if you're bringing a significant other along.
So, to keep the fun going, here are a handful of game ideas for when you go up to bed. All you have to do is make sure your partner knows where the squeaky floorboards are.
(And remember, the ancient Greeks competed in the nude so there's no reason why you shouldn't.)
Lovehoney Oh! games
Lovehoney Oh! have a dozen gifts that won't break the bank and keep your foreplay fresh. From card games to dice and scratch cards, there's something for gamers and non-gamers alike.
Kama Sutra playing cards can be used traditionally, albeit in a slightly more titillating manner (Rummy never has looked so yummy) or to leave your lover clues to the evening ahead.
Truth or Dare is a well-known party game; but Kinky Confessions is a variation that'll certainly spice up the evening. Pick a card and ask them which of the two sexy acts on the cards they'd prefer, and if they refuse to answer, set them a sexy forfeit.
Whether your evening ends in hot sex or passing out of the sofa bed, the truth or dare cards make for sizzling conversation and tantilising teases.
Will it be sucking a nipple in the kitchen, or stroking the inner thighs in the garden? It gives a new meaning to whodunnit.
If you're lucky enough to get time alone with your lover this year, the Hot Knots Beginner's Bondage Game comes with a deck of kinky suggestion cards, ribbons ties and a satin blindfold (which is also great if your neighbour's Christmas lights look like Blackpool Illuminations).
Maybe you fancy trying something new by taking some inspiration from infamous kinky love story between Christian Grey and Anastacia Steele. If so, the Bondage Seductions Game is perfect for exploring your secretive power play desires. Complete with 36 command cards, dice, blindfold, restraints and flogger, it's packed with fun and flirtatious ideas to encourage you both to dip your toes into the exciting realms of light BDSM play. The only thing to decide is - who will rule and who will obey?
Fancy something a little more targeted? The Oral Fun Board Game takes everyone's favourite thing to do with their mouth (other than devour a holiday feast) and gamifies it with trivia and, ahem, tonguing tasks.
Build up the anticipation to make the five hour coach journey back to campus more interesting. You won't be able to keep your hands off each other when you get back to your student house, which is doubly helpful because heating is expensive...
Got any suggestions for sneaky fun over the festive period? Or have you ever tried to see how many jelly peens or jelly boobies you can fit in your mouth? Make sure you let us know in the comments below.
