“Life is more fun if you play games.—Roald Dahl

sexy games

For many, talking about sex doesn’t come naturally.

You may have grown up in a family that never mentioned sex. The topic can seem dirty or inappropriate.

You might feel uncomfortable talking to your spouse about what you like, what you’d like to try, or anything else related to sex.

Or maybe you just want some fresh ideas.

If this sounds like you, it’s time to give sexy games a try.

Sexy games are a great way to build sexual intimacy, deepen your emotional intimacy, and kick-start potentially awkward conversations.

Within the ONE Family, 15% of couples use sexy games as part of foreplay or to enhance sexual intimacy.

These games can add fun, excitement, and adventure to sex. They can help shake things up when sex feels too routine.

Games can build anticipation and help get you in the mood. Some are competitive, while others are relaxing.

Connecting through these games can lead to laughter, closeness, and a heightened sexual experience.

But 85% of the ONE Family aren’t using sexy games to build sexual and emotional intimacy.

There are tons of reasons you might feel uncertain about incorporating sexy games.

For example, you might not know where to start or if you’ll even like using them. The idea of using something new can make you feel exposed.

But imagine if talking with your spouse about sexy games, stepping outside your comfort zone, and trying something new unlocked a deeper level of connection in your sexual intimacy.

Would it be worth it?


Sexy games can teach you new things about yourself and your spouse, and they can enhance all areas of sexual intimacy, including romance, initiation, foreplay, and intercourse.

When you play sexy games, you are fully present with each other. Your brain is engaged instead of going through the motions.

As with anything you try for the first time, sexy games might initially seem awkward. However, if you remain committed to the process, things can quickly become fun and adventurous.

So how do you get started?

First, have a conversation with your spouse outside of your bedroom about the kinds of games you’d like to try.

There are several sexy games that couples in the ONE Family recommend, such as Love Battleship, Sex Jenga, Strip Tic Tac Toe, and more. Find one that sounds fun, or create your own.

Next, talk about when you might try sexy games. Will you try a new game on vacation? How about this weekend?

Finally, debrief with your spouse.

Depending on your relationship, waiting a day or two can be beneficial. Be honest as you share your likes or dislikes.

Remember that whether the initial experience was good, bad, or indifferent, playing sexy games helps you build sexual and emotional intimacy.

You also don’t have to use these games every time you have sex. In fact, most people don’t.

Rather, they are a way to enhance your sexual experience and help you try new things. Consider incorporating a game once a month or every few months.

Give each game a couple of tries. The first attempt can be challenging as you learn how the game works.

Allow yourself time to figure out what you like, but if you try a game a few times and don’t love it, don’t be afraid to try something else or spice up the game with a sex pillow or wedge.

Don’t underestimate the impact these games can have on your 6 Pillars of Intimacy®.

If you’ve never tried sexy games, it’s time to talk about it. If you tried it before and gave up, step outside your comfort zone and try again because your body and preferences change over time.

Take action today to strengthen your marriage and enhance sexual intimacy with sexy games.
