At-Home Date Ideas
Have a Frat Party
Miss the wild abandon of your college days? Have the gang over for beers and a movie – but save the make out session for later. Rent a fun party flick like Old School – just don't get too inspired by the streaking scene.
Call in sick, rent a few romantic videos, and stay in bed all day long. The point here isn't to get it on. It's all about spending a whole day together without distractions.
Take a Bath
Hot tubs are overrated! There's fun to be had in your very own bathroom. Rub-a-dub-dub, keep it sexy in the tub with bath salts, soaps, and a back-massaging loofah.
Create a VIP Club
Who needs a bar to dance? Load your iPod with sexy tunes, from Kanye to Rihanna, and hook it up to the speakers in your pad. Bonus points for hanging a disco ball (find these cheap at stores like Walmart, Target, or your local party store) to get a club-like vibe.
Spread a blanket on the floor and bring a picnic basket chock-full of your favorite goodies to your favorite spot in the house. Or, have your picnic in bed to encourage between-the-sheets action.
Heat up by the Fire
Build a crackling fire in the living room. Take turns reading aloud from a sexy book (here are some of our favorites) in front of the blaze. The catch: You can't touch each other until you're done reading. How's that for getting a fire started?
Challenge your mate to two-person strip poker. It's guaranteed to be hotter than the group version since you'll be in the buff in no time. Add a twist: Whoever keeps their clothes on the longest gets to call the shots during the postgame.
Relive the Past
Have a stay-at-home nostalgia fest. Plan a decadent meal and dine in on the sofa. Watch your wedding video together or flip through your wedding album and honeymoon photos. Talk about one new thing you've discovered about each other since you said “I do."
Have a Sex Fest
This one speaks for itself. Block off a night to have at each other in a way you haven't since your honeymoon. Let him know what he can do to please you and vice versa. Some vanilla massage cream, Kama Sutra oil, or body paints should also get things going.
Match Your Meal to Your Movie
Take dinner and a movie to the next level by letting your movie pick inspire your meal. Dig The Godfather? Whip up an Italian feast, from gourmet antipasti to tiramisu for two. Get inspired by the movie-and-a-meal combos on our list .
Have a Wine Tasting à Deux
Buy a few bottles of your favorite varietals from around the globe and rate and review. Remember: This is a tasting party...chugging will only result in falling asleep before any booty time.
