What You Need For Basketball in the Bedroom

Now let’s chat about what you need to play this sizzling game of STRIP BASKETBALL! Here is a handy list to follow!

  • Comfortable sports attire for both you and your sweetheart – I laid out sporty outfits on the bed for both of us to suit up in (at least 5 pieces of clothing each), although I knew we wouldn’t be wearing it long! I picked some tight spandex shorts, and a sporty top for me, and made sure to set out his favorite team shirt (Go UTAH JAZZ!)
  • A mini kid’s basketball hoop and ball – If you already have this, great! But if you don’t, you can be creative!Β I used our (clean) office trash can, a piece of a cardboard box, and the printable strip horse backboard to make a little DIY hoop as another option. You can download the template at the end of the post if you want to make your own. I also picked up a ball at the Dollar Store for this strip basketball date!
  • Water bottles (or Gatorade) to stay hydrated
  • Sweat towels (because things will get steamy! πŸ˜‰ )
  • The darling letter cards, time out prints, and printable backboard (linked below!)

Now, keep in mind that you don’t have to be a basketball couple to enjoy these “horse” bedroom ideas! Engaging in the game (or at least trying to) is a huge turn-on and an amazing way to bond over something that your sweetheart enjoys. Keep reading to read how to play!

Strip Basketball Setup

To set up your strip basketball game, print out the HORSE letters and set up your basketball hoop in a cleared space of your room. Then, lay out the challenge cards somewhere you will be able to read them throughout your game. Lastly, turn the fan on high because you’ll definitely be getting a great workout in with this sexy horse bedroom game! By the way, we highly recommendΒ warming up before you begin! You wouldn’t want to pull a muscle before the fun REALLY starts! πŸ˜‰

How to Play Horse in the Bedroom

So here’s how to play HORSE in the bedroom, (or strip basketball, as we like to call it!)

  • One person takes a shot from anywhere in the room. We had fun shooting from silly spots like inside the closet or on the bed (the bed was MY money shot!)
  • If the first player makes their shot, the other person must make the exact same shot.
  • If the second person misses that same shot, they get a letter, spelling out HORSE. The first person to have all the letters of HORSE loses.
  • You can place the letter tiles on your individual sides of your dresser or bed, with each of you keeping track of how many letters you’ve accumulated.
  • Include this sexy twist! With each letter either of you receive, remove a piece of clothing. Ooo baby!

The way this went for us was after our kids went to bed, the buzzer went off and it was GAME ON! We turned on the “Space Jam” soundtrack for some pump-up jams (any 90s kids out there?!)

Strip Game Timeouts

As a fun twist to the game, use the FREE time out cards that you can pull at any time during the game! Each spouse gets a 20-second timeout and a 1-minute timeout to use at their discretion. Start the timer and have fun making out, dancing, or doing whatever you please (EXCEPT taking off clothes) during your time out! By using these adorable timeout cards, you can really create the HEAT in the bedroom! πŸ˜‰

In the end, we really hope this strip basketball date makes all of your SWISHES come true! πŸ˜‰

  1. I really like what you guys aare up too. This sort of
    clever work and exposure! Keep up thhe very good works guy I’ve added you guys to blogroll.

  2. I love this re-vamped version!! This is one of our favorite dates, I can’t wait to try this one!

  3. 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.

    1. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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!

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

  8. Any mini hoop will work! I was even thinking a mini hoop you can hang from the back of your bedroom door! Enjoy πŸ˜‰

  9. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! I do not have a hoop but I am going to buy one just for this! Great idea πŸ™‚

  10. 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! πŸ™‚
