4. Love Matching Game - Similar to the sex memory game, you’ll draw cards and do the acts mentioned on the card. This is a matching game, so for every act, there will be two cards, meaning each partner has to give and receive pleasure. This card game is a bit tamer than the sex memory game, but still a great time. Choosing between the two can depend on how comfortable sexually you are with your partner.
