Looking for a new game to play in the bedroom? Here’s a quick and easy idea I call the Courting Game. You’re going to be the one who’s courted, and your spouse is going to hit on you with the goal of getting you in bed. I guess this game could also be called “Pick-up Artist,” but “courting” sounds more elegant. I’d prefer an eighteenth-century throne room over a modern bar any day.
Here’s how it works. On a sheet of paper, you’re going to make a table like this:
|Turn On||Shy guys||Breathy voice||Suggestive movements|
|Turn Offs||Forwardness||Flattery||Shy guys|
|Subject of Interest||Cats||Philosophy||Motorcyles|
Essentially you’re describing what turns on and turns off three different characters, which you’re going to play. (If you need ideas, try the Sexy Role-playing Generator by MarriedGames.org.) Your spouse, without ever seeing this sheet, will try their hand and courting any or all of these characters, and based on whether or not your spouse meets your predetermined criteria, you’ll either open up or give them the cold shoulder. Of course, if your spouse isn’t making any luck by their third attempt, you can start giving hints.
This game is fun because, unlike most sexy role-plays, it adds a concrete goal with fairly concerete rules, so when success is achieved, and the courting spouse makes a conquest by getting that certain character in bed, there’s an added sense of reward and accomplishment.
