“What do you want to do to me right now?”

10,496 Hypes

Valentine’s Day can be all about love, intimacy and bomb sex but historically, the holiday triggers quite the contrary. Whether you’re stumped on what to do for Valentine’s Day, struggling to initiate sex discussions without feeling awkward or simply wanting to deepen intimacy in your current relationship, sex and intimacy games are an easy, low-pressure way to bring play into your relationship.

According to a 2021 survey conducted by sexual wellness and intimacy brand, Wonderlust, over 500 couples revealed their “biggest intimacy struggle is talking about sex. Consequently, that hinders their main desires like trying new things in bed, having more pleasurable sex and feeling closer to their partners,” said the brand’s founder Natassia Miller.

Especially for those in long-distance relationships, conversations surrounding intimacy and sex can trigger feelings of loneliness and frankly, sadness. So, instead of sulking in sh-tty feels, opt for play and have fun discussing the things that make us closer.
