23 Kinky & Fun Games To Play With Your Partner

23 Kinky & Fun Games To Play With Your Partner

Want to try something different on your next date night? What about a "Strip Twister" game or "Sexy Jenga"? To help couples have fun, explore one other's thoughts (and bodies), and get to know one another better, we've picked together 23 expert-approved games that range from romantic to bawdy.

The Benefits of Playing Games with Your Partner

First things first: Play is a very crucial element of your relationship. De-Andrea Blaylock-Johnson, LCSW, CST, an AASECT-certified sex therapist, says: "I believe a lot of times individuals underestimate the importance of play within their relationship." She points out that taking ourselves too seriously is simple, so including aspects of play and allowing yourself room for creativity may improve your connection.

Megan Fleming, Ph.D., a professional psychologist, and trained sex therapist by the AASECT, claims that as adults, we don't always allow ourselves enough room to play. However, having the framework of various games, whether they are more kinky, romantic, or somewhere in between, allows couples to explore in ways they would not have thought of.

Because it's someone or something outside of you guiding you and providing direction to explore things you would not have thought of on your own, she says, "it safely fosters curiosity."

Board & card games:

1. Use Your Mouth

Blaylock-Johnson enjoys the card game Use Your Mouth, which sexologist Shamyra Howard developed. According to her, the fact that they are conversation starter cards makes them ideal for anyone searching for fresh approaches to pursuing discussions and asking topics you would not often ask.

2. Twister

Blaylock-Johnson also advises pulling out your old Twister box if you want to get into play mode. She continues, "We don't frequently allow ourselves to be conscious," but she promises that this retro game will entangle your body and help you be present.

3. Monogamy

Fleming suggests this top-rated adult board game for couples. There is much conversation—and enjoyment—to be had with the Monogamy Adult Board Game. Fleming believes it's a great way to get out of a sexual rut and has over 400 options for inspiration.

4. Fog of Love

A two-player board game, Fog of Love, has you and your companion navigating a fictitious romance. It is your responsibility to keep your two characters that fall in love together. You'll experience ups and downs, jokes, and a lot of tough talks and compromise while playing as this couple. Do you feel up to the task?

5. 52 Weeks of Sexploration

You and your partner may try out fresh, racy, and romantic activities using the Fleming-recommended cards deck. The tasks on each card in the Exploration Vouchers deck vary, with half leaning more toward the charming and romantic and the other half toward the filthy.

6. The Ultimate Game for Couples

This deck of cards, which Fleming suggests, is appropriately referred to as the Ultimate Game For Couples since it is designed specifically for couples. The 200 cards include questions, challenges, and competitions, and you may play alone or with other partners.

7. Welcome to Your Perfect Home

Are there any Mad Men fans out there? Build the most remarkable New Town in America during the 1950s in Welcome to Your Perfect Home by letting your creativity run wild. You'll construct mansions, parks, and swimming pools in addition to hiring staff.

Drinking games:

8. Kinky Confessions

Fleming suggests Kinky Confessions, which is kind of like a kinky hybrid of Truth or Dare and Would You Rather. Each card includes a "would you prefer" challenge, and you may play with up to five people or simply by yourself. If you don't want to respond to the question, you must forfeit (take a shot or sip of your drink). You may also play this game without alcohol, and you can choose what the "forfeit" take is.

9. 20 Questions with A Twist

Do you remember playing 20 Questions with your crush back then? Instead of you inquiring about them, ask your companion questions about you to add a drinking twist. What was the name of your high school? Let's say you asked them? If they make a mistake, they sip. You taste if they get it correctly. Ask each other questions until you have each asked your 20 questions.

(For obvious reasons, Fleming advises sipping throughout the lengthier games rather than taking shots.)

10. Beer Pong

For those who like beer pong, you can adapt this traditional drinking game for couples by placing truth-or-dare-style questions or assignments beneath each of your cups. Place your sheets of paper underneath the cups as you would for a traditional game of beer pong and arrange the cups in a pyramid configuration on each end of the table. Your significant other must respond to the query or carry the dare when you obtain a ball in that cup.

Fun games to get to know your partner:

11. Truth or Dare

Who doesn't like truth or dare, a timeless game popular with both couples and groups of friends? You may choose for probing, profound inquiries or to increase the level of intimacy; think about the 36 questions said to be effective in fostering romantic chemistry. Of course, you are free to make your dares as wholesome or obscene as you please.

12. Two Truths and a Lie

How well-acquainted are you and your partner in reality? With a few rounds of "two truths and a lie," you'll undoubtedly get the answer. The most significant feature of this game is that if you or your partner get the answer incorrect, you may add chores to make it more difficult. The possibilities are unlimited, whether you make it a drinking game where you sip for each incorrect answer or devise activities like getting a massage or doing the dishes.

13. Never Have I Ever

When it comes to romantic date evenings or group couples game nights, Blaylock-Johnson adores Never Have I Ever. You may theme it; she continues with objectives or challenges for the person who puts down five fingers first. The theme can be sexual, travel-related, etc.

14. The Gottman's Couples' Quiz

The How Well Do You Know Your Partner quiz, created by the Gottmans, two of the top relationship specialists worldwide, will answer all the crucial questions. Spend time looking through these, whether you decide to predict each other's responses or use them as discussion starters. This is a fantastic choice to consider, according to Blaylock-Johnson, if you want to evaluate and strengthen your understanding of your relationship. 

15. The And

Another suggestion from Blaylock-Johnson is The And by Skin Deep, which has a deck with several in-depth questions. They also provide versions for newlyweds, enduring partners, and even pals. You'll have the chance to ask questions you would not otherwise think to, and you're sure to learn more about your spouse.

Sexy games:

16. Sexy Jenga

Blaylock-Johnson recommends "Sexy Jenga" if you're seeking a seductive game with a hint of rivalry. Spend some time with entertaining instructions and assignments for each component (i.e., take off an item of clothing, take a shot, kiss your partner, etc.) and enjoy yourself as you disassemble the Jenga tower one piece at a time.

17. Sex Dice

Sex dice are popular among Fleming and Blaylock-Johnson because they encourage exploration of one another and provide ideas for the bedroom. On one of the dice is bodily parts, while on the other are orders (i.e., kiss neck or massage thighs). A third die designating a spot around the home is also included in certain sets.

18. Sexy Mad Libs

Do you still play Mad Libs from your childhood? According to Blaylock-Johnson, they're a fantastic way to discover your dreams and share them with your spouse. You may go the additional creative mile and entirely build your own, throwing in your adjectives and nouns for one enticing tale, or you can get free printouts of sexy Mad Lib outlines online.

19. Jar of Desire

This game was initially suggested as a favorite by certified sex therapist Michelle Herzog, LMFT, CST. Jar of Desire is what it's called, and both parties jot down 10 to 15 sexually-related queries, themes, or preferences before placing them in the jar. Pick randomly from the jar any time throughout the week (or night). You and your companion may discuss the card you were dealt vocally or physically.

20. 52 Weeks of Roleplay

Not sure where to begin with role-playing yet interested? Try out this set of role-playing cards while giving your finest acting performance. According to Fleming, each card contains simple and complex recommendations for various role-playing situations.

21. Talk, Flirt, Dare

Fleming likes the card game Talk, Flirt, Dare, which has seductive chores, sensual dares, and amusing conversation starters and questions for a sexy twist on Truth or Dare. The "Talk" cards are fantastic for a group of friends or couples, but you can keep the flirtatious and dare cards just for the two of you, which is a nice feature of this game.

22. Nookii

Nookii is a board game that goes closer and closer. Fleming claims that as you are encouraged to explore each other's bodies, it's about the tease and creating anticipation. It even has a little time if you like a little clock-induced pressure. Of course, you may also take your sweet time and leave the timer out.

23. Find the Honey

Simple—but possibly messy—is this DIY sex game for couples from sex and relationship therapist Courtney Geter, LMFT, CST. After applying honey (or chocolate syrup, whipped cream, etc.) on your partner's body, put on a blindfold. Next, locate the honey using nothing but your lips or tongue.

Every couple can add a bit extra playtime to their relationship, regardless of how long they've been dating or how recently they started. You may have fun, liven up the bedroom, and get to know each other better while playing, thanks to the wide variety of games available.
