One of the elements often missing from marital bedrooms is a sense of play. While sex in marriage is deeply intimate, it’s also recreational and pleasurable. It’s supposed to make you smile…and maybe even laugh sometimes.
So why not introduce that lighthearted mood by planning a sexy game night with your spouse?
Choose the game you want to play. There are sexy games appropriate for married Christian couples. Quality online Christian retailers screen games and let you know if there are any questionable portions.
Moreover, almost any game you own can be converted into a sexy game. Strip Battleship? Sure! Sink a ship, and your “opponent” removes an item of clothing. Sexy Monopoly? Sure! Land on his property, and you owe him a romantic or sexual favor. Naked Twister? Just see where getting in the buff and then putting your right hands on red and your left feet on green will get you.
Choose a game that doesn’t require much concentration or competition. Remember that the name of the game is fun. Keep it light and playful.
Send him a flirty invitation. To let him know it’s Sexy Game Night, try a game-themed invitation. Grab Scrabble letters to spell out a message and leave them where your husband can find them.
Make a crossword puzzle that allude to what you hope the end of the evening will hold.
Or make a game sheet, like this editable version of a Clue’s game sheet:
Set up the game. If you want to draw out the anticipation, send your honey on a scavenger hunt, leading him step by step to where you’ll play games and make love. That could be your bedroom or a hotel room or someplace else.
Or simply set the scene. Lay a blanket on the floor for your game area or play on top of the bed. Wear fun lingerie if you want. Choose mood-setting music.
Play. Invite him to join you. If this is a new experience for you, it might feel awkward at first. But you’ll likely begin to relax and enjoy yourself pretty quickly. Playing games together is a wonderful way for couples to connect, and when hubby knows it will lead to a sexual connection, he’ll probably be game.
God wants us to experience joy in the bedroom. It’s good to let loose sometimes and focus on a night of playful lovemaking. A Sexy Game Night may be just the thing for your marital intimacy.
