Let’s talk candidly for a minute. We all know that sometimes what happens in the bedroom can be a bit more of a “eh” time than an “ah” time. Sometimes the excitement can evaporate and become more of a “chore”. Like the highs and lows of life…the bedroom can also fall into this category. This definitely should not be happening for long lulls of time. Sometimes we just need to shake it up in THAT room and make it a fun activity between you and your spouse. This is the perfect time to introduce “Bedroom Games” into your intimacy. For those of you about to get scared away by that simple statement…have no fear. These games are completely created by you and your spouse. So there isn’t going to be anything involved that both of you are not comfortable with (and that is extremely important — you both have to be in agreement). These games are for you and your spouse to have fun playing together in an adult way, but not have to purchase the more “trashy” bedroom games out there (not that they are all trashy…I’m just sayin’). These are all games that you can either purchase inexpensively or you may already have them laying around your house.
Chutes and Ladders
This is a fun game that we all have played while growing up. So…naturally it would be a fun game now that we are grown up. We just need to modify the ol’ game board to make it a more adult-friendly version. All you have to do is grab your Chutes & Ladders Game and a black sharpie pen. Then you and your spouse take turns writing on the squares different foreplay ideas. (I would recommend writing on every 6th or 7th square.) Now, as you play the game you get to either skip ahead (Ladders) or you have to start all over (Chutes). Play the game for as long as you can stand it! haha.
If you don’t already own a Jenga game, I would recommend buying a cheaper version for this. I picked mine up for $5.00 at Big Lots (aka: Rainbow Jumbling Towers). Take about 1/2 of the blocks and write foreplay ideas or questions directly on the blocks using a sharpie pen (or if you want to make it really interesting write an idea down on all of the blocks). Then mix the blocks back in with the rest and build your tower. As each of you takes a turn pulling out a block you’ll have to do whatever is written down on the block until the tower falls. You can make a list of foreplay options for the “loser” to choose from if you plan to play more than one round.
You can purchase this game from Red Envelope or you can make your own using a regular Dart Board. You and your spouse take turns writing in each box just like the games above. Then start throwing! Oh, and did I mention that cheating during the game is totally encouraged? Go ahead and use that body of yours to block your spouse’s view. Distract him/her with any means necessary!
Striiiip Poker Dance
Hello! Have you not already played this game with your spouse? haha. Time to have a little more fun with it. Have your IPod or a CD playing of your favorite dance music in the background. Every time you loose a round (but really you’re both winners in this game – wink!) you get to turn up the music and “striiiip” off a piece of clothing in the most seductive way possible. (It’s pretty funny in the beginning when you are taking off a shoe or a sock, lol!) It’s bound to give you some good laughs in the process.

Sooo…you ready to play yet? These games just go to show that you can really modify any game that you have in your home to be a bedroom game. You don’t have to go spend a lot of money…all you need is a little bit of creativity to get the mood rolling…and a great sharpie pen! Oh, and don’t forget to set the scene wherever you may be playing your games. Clean up, light some candles, have some chocolate dipped strawberries and your favorite drinks close by for a night you won’t soon forget!
