Dare to share – write an erotic story with your lover
The original surrealists, back in the 1920s, used to play Exquisite corpse, a game in which each person takes turns contributing to a collection of words or images. (The name comes from a line of poetry thus created: “The exquisite corpse will drink the young wine.”). André Breton, the charismatic founder of Surrealism, described the game as both ‘fun’ and ‘enriching’ and the results were often otherwordly beautiful.
How about you play a sexy modern day version of this game with your lover? It not only helps you to get in the mood, but will also reveal so much about each other’s sexual desires and dreams.
This is how it works: you write an erotic story together by taking turns in contributing a sentence. You start. Don’t think about it too long, just write. Let your subconscious take over. Wearing something that makes you feel sexy definitely helps! I suggest sitting down together with a piece of paper or a laptop, but you can also do it by phone, texting each other over the course of a few days. (which would be an excellent warm up for Valentine’s day)
There aren’t really any rules, except that during the time you write this story, you don’t talk about it. You only react to each other’s contributions by writing the next sentence. Try not to judge, just go with the flow. Keep writing until you almost literally explode with desire. Warning: the sex that results from this game might be ‘surreal’. Enjoy!
