Strip Horse

by

Diva Disclaimer: We have ANOTHER great idea to “spice things up” in the bedroom.  If reading about stuff like this makes you blush ~ although we try to keep it tasteful and tame ~ you may want to skip this post.  For those of you always lookin’ for “intimacy” ideas… feel free to read on…

If you or your hubby LOVE basketball, you will LOVE this twist on the classic game of HORSE.  It’s a not-so-innocent game, great for an intimate night in! Here’s a quick refresher on the rules of HORSE: One person takes a shot.  If they make it, the other person must make the exact same shot.  If they don’t, they get a letter of HORSE.  The first person to have all the letters of HORSE loses. :(

Strip Horse

 The Invite

The night before, I made an invite and stuck it in my husband’s lunch.  He always grabs a morning snack around 10:00 a.m., meaning he’d have the rest of the day to stretch out and gear up. The invite read as follows:

                “Saddle up, because I’m about to knock your socks off in a little game of one-on-one”

(Check out the CUTE printable for your very own invite. Just write YOUR hubby’s name in the banner!  :)

Set up and Playing

I printed out the letters of HORSE twice (also see printable for an easy print out of HORSE) and set up my son’s Little Tikes basketball hoop in a cleared space of our room! If you don’t have a mini basketball hoop, its an easy find for your next quick trip to Wal-Mart or Target! Then, I taped our names on each side of the basketball hoop.  I arched the letters of HORSE above each of our names and was set to “knock his socks off.”

After our son went to bed, the buzzer went off and it was GAME ON!  If either of us were to get a letter of  HORSE we would move it from the arch to underneath our name.  And to make it a little more intimate, with each letter we would remove a piece of clothing.   ;-)

The fun doesn’t have to stop with Strip Horse, you can play games all night with some board games for the bedroom that Kari created!

    I think this is the CUTEST idea!! Seriously! How fun! All we need is a dollar store basketball hoop & mini basketball. I am SO heading to the dollar store this week! :)

  3. Robin Robin says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! I do not have a hoop but I am going to buy one just for this! Great idea :-)

  4. Paige Paige says:

    Any mini hoop will work! I was even thinking a mini hoop you can hang from the back of your bedroom door! Enjoy ;)

    Haha! My spouse loves to play NUNO (naked UNO) and each round, the loser removes an article of clothing. Super fun.

    Played this this week and had a blast!

  9. Laura says:

    oh my gosh this sounds so fun! my bf will be so surprised!

    Another variation would be to use an empty clothes hamper (for those of us without hoops) and any kind of ball ( or other fun item). When you miss the hamper and it’s time to strip a piece of clothing you can just throw it in the hamper! If you make your clothing in the hamper your spouse will have to match you. You could even forget the ball and just use clothing…start with a sock, if you make your right sock in then your spouse must make their right sock in. You could risk larger pieces of clothing, but if you miss when it’s your turn, then your other half gets to keep theirs on!

    Totally played this week (used hoop you hang over the door and it worked fine). It was awesome! Added some additional rules (i.e. sensual fouling encouraged) and added a one & two minute time out card for each player for kissing/fondling. My hubby absolutely loved it. Thanks for this brilliant idea!

    Strip Horse was hilarious. Hubby loved it. Started big with the pantygram I saw on another post as the invite. I managed to sneak it in the car so he would find it as he left for work. I used an empty tootsie roll canister and taped the panty corner to the lid so as he opened it they slowly rose out of the decorated canister. There was a sexy little note at the end. I used a few other clues/teasers throughout the week with the printables, mini basketball toy, orange tic tacs, and a little drawing I made of some half naked people (stick figure quality). When he called after work I asked him if he was awake and in a good mood. (we had an unfortunate incident with a middle of the night fire drill and were exhausted so I was worried he wouldn’t feel like date night.) but he said, “I’m trying not to speed to get there!” The teasers reallly worked. Had a whole night planned with 4 quarters. 1st quarter – arena style dinner. Chicken strips with honey mustard, boneless BBQ wings, seasoned fries and cokes. 2nd quarter- strip horse with basketball themed playlist. 3rd quarter- two minute warning- a variation of two minutes in heaven with a more seductive playlist, sparkling drinks. 4th quarter- !!!!. Was also planning on a brief half time between strip horse and two minute warning to freshen up before the more hands on game, but we didn’t even make it through the whole second quarter before I was being pulled towards the bedroom. It really was a lot of fun. Can’t wait to try some other dates.

    Forgot to mention we didn’t have a basketball hoop but I made a simple backboard (with the red box) and rim out of card stock. Took a few minutes. We used the mini nerd basketball toy I gave him as a teaser.

      Wow Heather! You did an amazing job! No wonder your husband enjoyed it! What a great idea to combined different ideas! It makes the date even more extravagant and special! AND all your personal add ons were GREAT! I’m impressed…very diva-ish of you! Glad you enjoyed!
