Want to try some fun Drinking Games For Couples?

If you’re looking to add a little spice to your relationship, a drinking game may be exactly what you need to do it.

Typically we think about playing drinking games with a group of friends. But there’s no rulebook that says we can’t play with just two!

Whether you’re a new couple or have been together for years, drinking games can be fun, sexy, and a great way to amp up the connection in your relationship.

Drinking Games For Couples

Here are some of our favorite drinking games for couples:


This may sound like a simple game – and that’s because it is. But Q&A is a great way for new couples to get to know each other.

For couples that have been together a long time, it’s a great way to find out who’s been listening and who knows the other better!

How To Play:

The rules are simple. Ask your partner a question. Any question:

How old am I?

When’s my birthday?

Where was our first date?

What’s my favorite color?

Your partner answers the question. If they get it right, you drink.

If they get it wrong, they drink!

Whoever gets the most answers correct at the end of the game is the winner!

Spin The Bottle

Wait a minute – Spin the Bottle. Isn’t that a party game? Well, yes, it is! But no one said you can’t amend the rules a little bit to play as a couple!

Spin the bottle is a super sexy game that can get your adrenaline pumping and it shouldn’t be limited to singles.

So let’s amend it for couples:

How To Play:

Place a bunch of sexy items in a circle. Maybe some whipped cream, some sexy lingerie, some chocolate, or even some toys.

Make rules for each item. Of course, you’ll have to have shots placed around the circle as well (maybe in between each item). 

Make rules for each item. Whoever lands on whipped cream needs to lick it off their partner.

Whoever lands on lingerie needs to put it on and do a sexy dance. And so on and so forth. 

Spin the bottle. If it lands on an item, do the action associated with that item. If it lands on a shot, take a shot!

Or start with these spin the bottle questions.

Sip And Strip

If you’re looking for a super simple but sexy game to play – sip and strip is the game for you.

As a word of caution, as you can probably already tell, the game does involve stripping. So if you aren’t at that level in your relationship yet, you might want to skip this one. If you are – get ready for a sexy night of um…”canoodling”.

How To Play:

All you need for this game is a coin. Heads or tails? You guess which is going to come up. If you’re wrong, you take a sip.

Flip again, if you’re wrong twice, you strip!

If you’re right, you don’t have to do anything – it’s your partner’s turn. Game ends when someone ends up naked and you can’t control yourselves anymore!

Artistic Drunkenness

Drawing isn’t everyone’s forte, but that’s what makes this game so fun – especially when you’ve been drinking. So if you’re looking to keep things more lighthearted as opposed to sexy, this game is great for a good laugh.

How To Play:

Each “artist” has their own canvas. Before you start, write different objects on some cards and place them in a hat (ie. cat, dog, house, plant, etc).

The first player draws a card and has to draw the object they choose.

If the other player doesn’t guess what they have drawn within 30 seconds, they have to take a shot. Then repeat for the next player. 

Never Have I Ever

We love the game Never Have I Ever for so many reasons – but we especially love it for newer couples.

If you’re looking for a game that will help you get to know each other better, this is the one! It’s often played with a group of friends, but playing as a couple with some shots at hand can be just as fun. 

How To Play:

Have some drinks ready on hand. First player says, “Never Have I Ever _____”. For example, they might say, “Never Have I ever skinny dipped” or “Never Have I ever been to Europe”.

If the other player has done the action, they take a shot or sip! Then, switch players. 

Last player with a drink still left wins. 

Truth or Drink

Truth or Drink is always a fun one to do with the two of you. It’s just like truth or dare, except it’s all truths and drinking….

How To Play:

To play, each person takes turns asking their partner a personal question. The other person must then answer truthfully or take a drink. The questions can range from light and silly to more serious and intimate, providing an opportunity for deeper conversations and bonding.

Do Or Drink

Don’t want to do truths?! Do dares instead! This is always a fun one to see who can come up with the funniest ones, and which of you is the most brave in doing these dares.

How To Play:

In do or drink for couples, you will dare your partner to do something. They either have to do the dare, or take a shot! The game continues until either one person refuses to answer or one person runs out of drinks.

Couples Truth or Dare

Of course a classic of couples Truth or Dare could be a fun game to turn into a drinking game as well. You can always combine the Truth or Drink/Do or Drink games and the person must take a shot if they don’t complete the task/question.

“Who’s Most Likely To…” Drinking Game

Turn one of our favorite couples question games into a drinking game. Read off our list of “Who’s Most Likely To…” questions for couples to start this fun game…

How To Play:

In this game, players take turns asking questions about each other, such as “Who’s most likely to get lost on their way home” or “who’s most likely to become famous”. The person who is deemed most likely to do the action in the statement takes a drink.

To keep the game going, players can take turns coming up with new statements, and can modify the rules as needed to fit their preferences…like if you both answer opposite, you both have to drink!

Playing Couples Drinking Games

These are a few of our favorite games for couples to play. Of course, it’s important to respect each other’s boundaries when playing drinking games.

It’s all fun and games when you’re just friends, but some of the games above can quickly lead to arguments if they aren’t played respectfully as couples.

So here are some tips to keep in mind when playing with your partner:

Respect Each Other’s Boundaries

Most importantly, no matter what you are doing, it’s important that you respect each other’s boundaries. If you’re playing spin the bottle and your partner doesn’t feel comfortable giving a lap dance, don’t force them to give a lap dance or feel bad for skipping it.

On the flip side, don’t be afraid to stick to your boundaries. Boundaries are healthy in a relationship, and setting them in the beginning is important. 

Don’t Ask Questions That You Don’t Want Answers To

There’s some games listed above that require you to ask and answer questions. If you’re in a very new relationship, it’s unlikely that these games will cause too many problems.

But at a certain point in your relationship, there may be questions that you don’t want answers to. If there is a question that may potentially upset you, don’t ask it while you’re enjoying your game. Have a good time and save the emotionally charged questions for another time. 

Just Have Fun

Play the games, enjoy each other’s company, and just have fun – that’s what it’s all about! 

Drinking games can be a fun and lighthearted way for couples to spend time together and bond over a few drinks. Whether you prefer classic games like Never Have I Ever or Truth or Dare, or more interactive games like Flip, Sip, or Strip, there are plenty of options to choose from.

Just remember to always drink responsibly and never drink beyond your limits.

With the right person, a few drinks, and some good company, a night of playing couples drinking games can be an unforgettable experience.
