Pieces of Passion 13 – Erotic Associations

As I sit in beautiful sunny Ohio, I am reflecting on my recent trip to Beltane in N. Maryland. I was thinking about the hot words we use, the power of words, the associations we have to words… and thus for this week’s Pieces of Passion I offer the following to enjoy:

Pieces of Passion #13: Erotic Associations

The rules are simple. Partner one begins with a word. Any word. Partner two responds with a word in response. The trick that takes it out of the ordinary ice-breaker game of word association? Make it sensual, sexual, naughty, or downright filthy.

1: Orange
2: (sensually) Juice
1: Squirt
2: Soaking
1: Sheets
2: Tangled
1: (defiantly) Tattered
2: Stockings
1: Corset
2: Tight!

Advanced players may wish to include pantomime, touch, sound effects, and more. There is no right answer to what comes to mind, so if your partner says something you do not consider sensual, sexual or erotic, there are a few possibilities at play. Perhaps they lost track that it was supposed to be a Pieces of Passion tool. Or, perhaps they have a fetish or an internal association with something you might nt be aware of. Really- you never know what someone might be into… Dinosaurs for example might be someone’s hardcore desires!

This game adapts well for more than two players. It can be played in a few different manners.

Option 1 (multi-player, circle)
1: Firm
2: Biting
3: Vampires
4: Seduction
1: Winking

Option 2 (multi-player, rotating starburst)
1: Firm
2: Biting
3: Cock
4: Fists
1: Yum… I’ll take one of each. Ok, your turn.
2: Um, how about… Slippery?
3: Lubrication
4: Wrestling
1: Soap
3: Soap?
1: Yeah, like when you drop it in the locker room shower and…
3: Oooooo, nice!

Enjoy, and let the words flow like water…
