Do you find ‘talking dirty’ during sex difficult? Are you unsure of what to say? Or even how to say it? Is it something you want to explore but don’t have a clue where to start? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then you’re in luck. The latest addition to the Lovehoney Oh! range might just hold the answers to all of your sexy speaking questions.
The playing cards arrive in the cute box pictured, which is lovely, simplistic and matches well with the rest of the range. The heart detailing makes the products in this range feel non-intimidating and friendly towards beginners and couples. There are no tacky, seedy images in sight, which makes a lovely change from many of the back-alley looking games boxes that I’ve come across.
Opening the box, I was pleased with the presentation of the cards inside. The back has the same heart detailing as the packaging, which is a nice touch and the front are simple, just white with a pink border and clear, easy to read text. I was also pleased with the quality of these cards as they are in no way flimsy and don’t feel as though they’ll tear.
The first few cards in the deck include some basic starting points and suggestions for talking dirty, such as the pace, tone and volume of your voice, which I can see being of use to those who have never participated in this type of play before or have and are nervous about doing so. There is also a couple of instruction cards and three game suggestions. These games are called Turn-Me-On Texting, Take a Dip and Higher and Higher. I’ll leave those as a surprise, but I’ll say our favourite is the latter as we’re quite competitive!
You don’t have to use any of these games if they don’t appeal to you, are outside of your comfort zone or don’t particularly match with your experience level, as there are so many other ways you can use these cards. A few ideas that we particularly like are taking our choice of cards and putting them together to make a script for a role-play scenario or play scene, or taking a handful of cards and then try to incorporate all of the phrases written on them into a session. Something simple like snap would work too, it just depends on the people playing and what they want to get out of the game.
These cards don’t just feature a simple phrase, they also offer an activity which is written below to give you an idea of a scenario where that phrase would be appropriate. I won’t give the entire game away, because that’s not fair, but I will show you one example, which is “I want you to screw me as hard as you can”, and the activity talks about encouraging your partner to be a little rough during sex (providing you are comfortable with this – bonus points to Lovehoney for mentioning the importance of consent, tastes and boundaries)
Overall, I think the Talk Dirty Playing Cards are great and for £5.99, I don’t think you can go wrong. It would the perfect stocking filler or cheeky gift for anyone wanting to explore dirty talk, be that beginners or people who just want some fresh ideas or practise. *They are gender/sexuality neutral for the most part, although some cards may need to be altered slightly.*
