Sex Games

Definition - What does Sex Games mean?

Sex games are games of a sexual nature, often played by couples as part of foreplay. These may be traditional games adapted to add a sexual element, such as strip poker, or card or board games designed to arouse the participants.

Popular commercial sex games include Nookii, Monogamy, and erotic dice sets.

Kinkly explains Sex Games

As children we often play games like Doctor and Nurse as an ordinary part of sexual exploration. As adults, many partners continue to enjoy sex games as a part of foreplay.

Some sex games are variations on popular games, such as strip poker and strip pong. In these games, participants remove an item of clothing at various intervals, such as when they lose a hand or when their competitor makes a shot. Other games can also become sex games if the winner is promised a sensual massage or some other sexual treat in reward for winning. Commercial sex games encourage participants to follow sensual directions when they choose a card or roll a pair of dice.

While these sex games are typically played in private, some sex games may be played in public spaces. For example, in the popular role-playing game Strangers for a Day, real-life couples pretend to be strangers making a new connection in a public place, such as a bar or hotel lobby. Other role-playing scenarios can also be considered types of sex games.

Sex games are designed to build sexual tension by encouraging participants to take their time with foreplay and delay gratification. Playing sex games is a great way for couples to add variety to their sex lives, expand their sexual repertoire, and get participants talking about their turn-ons and turn-offs.
