5 Games For Date Night That Could Very Well Lead To Sexby Chelsea Aaron on August 21, 2012
Whether you’re on a first date or 3 years deep into a committed relationship that is slowly draining you of your will to live, it’s always a good time for game night. If used correctly, the following traditionally family-friendly activities can provide hours of sizzling sexual tension. (And yes, we DO feel a little weird about using the phrases “family-friendly” and “sizzling sexual tension” in the same sentence, but it’s too late to turn back now.) Here are 5 games that are win-win, even if you lose.
If an intellectual connection gets you all hot and bothered but you don’t want to spend 2 hours on Scrabble, bust out this portable pouch of letters and get ready for a no-holds-barred thrill ride of full-throttle spelling fun. (Coincidentally, that sentence is also the tagline for our upcoming Vin Diesel/Arrested Development blockbuster, Fast and Furious 6: There’s Always Money in the Bananagrams.)
At first glance, this Hasbro classic may seem excruciatingly boring, but look again: it is RIFE with opportunities for innuendo. Your date wants to buy a spot on the boardwalk? It’s gonna cost ‘em a kiss. Your boyfriend desperately needs to borrow your “Get Out of Jail Free” card? We’re pretty sure you can figure out a fair trade. (COME ON, DAMMIT, USE YOUR IMAGINATION.)
If all else fails, just throw a handful of Monopoly dollars in the air and pretend you’re in a sexy T-Pain music video. (Note: Should you attempt to deploy the phrase “It be rainin’ Uncle Pennybags up in here!”, we can’t guarantee that your date won’t leave you sitting alone on your living room floor, broken-hearted and surrounded by counterfeit cash, just like that time in Reno.)
This game consists almost entirely of staring deeply into one another’s eyes and seductively purring phrases like “I’m calling your bluff,” “Raise,” “All in,” and “Read ‘em and weep, baby: pocket rockets. BOOM. How’s that taste, loser?!” (Ok, maybe skip the last one.) To make it even hotter, hide the poker chips and bet with clothing items instead.
Truth or Dare
You can keep it light and funny (“I dare you to do your best Sean Connery impression”), or steer things toward Marvin Gaye territory if you’re feelin’ bold (“Truth: Where’s your favorite place to be kissed?”). Either way, this game is basically guaranteed to lead to an awesome night of laughs and/or an epic make-out sesh—as long as you don’t ask “What’s your absolute saddest childhood memory?” or dare your date to take off your band-aid.
You’re on the floor grinding up against each other. THE FOREPLAY IS PRACTICALLY DONE FOR YOU.
