Date nights are always lovely, so if you and your partner like to clear out entire evenings just to hang, you're two lucky people. That said, spending your "quality time" eating Chinese takeout and watching Netflix can get old pretty fast. If you're in search ways to make your nights in more fun, breaking up the routine with
sexy games for couples is definitely worth a shot.
Is there a chance your partner might raise an eyebrow if you bring home a raunchy version of Monopoly? It's a possibility, but all you need to do is explain that
a sexy board game doesn't just help you to push past your comfort zones and expand your sexual experiences. Studies have also shown that healthy sexual encounters with your partner bring you closer in other areas of your life, too, and this is due to hormonal releases and loving associations that happen while you're going at it. In other words, a date night in filled with a few good orgasms might really benefit your relationship, and with that kind of science, we can all lower our eyebrows and give it a shot.
Check out these awesome and sensual ways to strengthen your bond with your partner the next time you've got a date night.
