It’s official. The nights are getting colder. Winter is fast approaching, and the change in weather often signals a change in your routine. If you’re in a relationship, that usually means more nights in together. But just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean it can’t be hot inside. So here are three steamy ways to stay entertained with your significant other.
Recently a nostalgia dream for everyone raised during the ’90s came true. Nintendo released the NES Classic, a mini version of the original NES with 30 classic games built in. I was excited. Who doesn’t love a few rounds with the Super Mario Bros.?
Like many couples out there, my boyfriend’s enthusiasm for video games is a bit higher than mine. It would be an understatement to say he enjoys gaming for a longer time than I normally would. I’m normally bored with it after about 10 minutes; he can play for hours. It is always important for us to try to stay active in each other’s interests. Being the thoughtful man he is, he came up with an idea to make his hours of gaming more interesting for his Princess Peach. It’s what we like to call the Nintendo Oral Challenge.
The idea is this: We pick one of the classic games and compete for high scores. The catch is that the player must maintain concentration while the other is performing oral favors.
My boyfriend is competitive with video games, but I don’t mind taking all of the 400 seconds playing as the Italian man while my Italian man plays with me. I may lose the high score, but with this game everyone ends up winning.
If you haven’t been able to get your hands on an NES Classic, you can substitute a different gaming system. Or you can kick it even more old school and have a board game night.
With all the sexy and adult themed games on the market, this option is far from your typical Friday night in.
The game we tried most recently is called “Sexy Secrets: The game of intimate confessions.” It can be played with more people, but it works just as well for two. This particular game gives couples a great chance to learn more about each other by opening up doors to conversations you wouldn’t normally have about your intimate desires. With such sexy content, it shouldn’t take long for words to turn into actions.
If you’re looking for a more “adult” theme, host a homemade casino night. You can pick up a reasonably priced casino game set. While strip poker is always a popular option, you can find one that includes a mini roulette wheel which gives those of us lacking a good poker face a chance to get in on the fun and have a chance at winning. Instead of betting money, you can wager articles of clothing or sexual favors. The numbers only go up to 36, but you can still get a 69 from it.
