When I'm browsing sex toy shops, I always wonder about the sex games on the shelves. They look like fun, but I'm never sure if they're worth the investment. Do you really need to roll dice to try new moves in bed, or can you just come up with the prompts yourself? Astroglide's resident sexologist "Dr. Jess" O'Reilly tells Bustle that you don't need to spend a dime to enjoy — and benefit from — some of the best sex games. There are a few you can make yourself right at home.
A game might be especially helpful if you and your partner have hit a dry spell. Sometimes, it takes a bit of variety to get super hot for each other again, and games all add variety. "Playing games is one way to reignite the spark — especially if those games push your comfort zone," says Dr. Jess. "They have the potential to reignite the feelings you experienced when you first met."
Here are a few simple sex games that can get you and your partner talking about sex, inspire you to explore new activities and fantasies, teach you about each other, and take your passion to the next level.
