Review: Lovehoney Oh! Kinky Confessions Card Game

Lovehoney Oh! Kinky ConfessionsAfter trying out the Kinky Calendar and Talk Dirty Cards from the Oh! range, I decided to try out another one of the new games available. I opted for this pack of Kinky Confessions when I needed to fill a gap on a recent order. I thought these might be as fun as the other games and for the price, you can’t really go wrong!

It arrived in the cute box pictured, which I think is lovely. The simplistic heart detailing on the packaging makes the products in this range feel non-intimidating and friendly for beginners and couples. There are no seedy images in sight, which makes a lovely change from lots of the sex games packaging that I’ve seen which is bordering on or overtly tacky.

Upon opening the box, I was pleased with the presentation of the cards. The front of them are simplistic. Just plain white with a pink border and clear, easy to read text. The back features the same heart detailing from the packaging, which is a nice touch. I was further pleased with the quality of the cards as they felt in no way flimsy and I had no worries about them getting torn or ruined.

Lovehoney Oh! Kinky ConfessionsThe first card in the desk is a basic instruction card. It explains the rules of the game and offers an extra suggestion – which is to just pick one card at random and use it for inspiration during playtime that follows. The main game is played a little differently. It says to shuffle the pack of cards and pick out ten cards each (assuming you’re playing with one other person) then take it in turns to read out the questions on the cards. If you’re playing in a group scenario, then you can decide how many cards are given to each player.

If a player chooses not to answer a question, they must then perform a forfeit. There’s an included card that offers a few suggestions such as removing a piece of clothing or bending over and receiving five spanks. I think some of these suggestions are quite tame, so it’s up to you whether you use them or create your own. We used a combination of the ones included and things we’d come up with ourselves, but in all honesty, we only forfeited for the fun of it as there was nothing we felt uncomfortable answering.

We ended up going through the entire deck in one evening and some interesting discussions followed as a result. My partner and I have been together for almost two years and have known each other closely much longer than that, so we already knew most of the others answers. We communicate openly about pretty much everything and have covered our likes and dislikes quite intensively over the past few months, but there were a couple of surprises.

Lovehoney Oh! Kinky ConfessionsI’m not sure that I would describe these cards as kinky or risqué, although there are one or two that are an exception to this. There are brief mentions of orgies, sex dungeons and rimming, but there’s nothing more extreme than that and as I said, there are only a couple of cards along these lines. I was expecting there to be questions about medical play, cbt and other bondage topics that might be seen as “taboo”, so the actual questions were a little underwhelming. I would love to see an advanced version of these cards for those with a kink meter that goes beyond basic spanking and restraint.

Overall, I think this game would be hilariously fun to play in a group scenario and informative with a new partner, but long-term couples will probably find that they already know most of the answers. This game was slightly disappointing for us as we had expected more “out there” scenarios but I can definitely see them being useful to new couples. It could be a great way to open up the lines of communication in a non-threatening way.
