Day 9 of the KY Intimacy Experiment is “ Dangerous Liaisons”. Good movie. Good title. It is so easy to fall into a routine with your significant other. I know we have. Even when you think you are switching things up, you can only do so much and its back to the same. Especially after a few years. The thrill is gone. Today’s exercise is about putting the unpredictability and excitement back into your love life. So they suggest doing an activity that will be fresh and exciting and maybe even a little scary.
Some suggestions are:
- White water rafting
- Hang gliding
- Sky diving
- Bungee jumping
- Go-kart racing
- Jet skiing or snow skiing
- Indoor rock climbing
- Ice skating
- Playing paintball or laser tag
- Horseback riding
- Visiting an amusement park (without the kids)
Today’s exercise actually had to wait a day for us. We had to wait for the older child to be at Cub Scout camp and the younger child to be with a sitter so we did it yesterday. We decided to go go-kart racing and my husband is a cheater. He is taller and stronger and kept running me off the track!!! It was fun in the end though. I told him next time we have a fun play-date, we can go horseback riding and we’ll see how well he does then. Rich boy from the city against poor girl from the country. He is toast!
The night activity is really up to the couple. Add a little danger, a little adrenaline pumping action to your routine. Nothing too tame but dont get crazy. My husband and I played hide-and-seek which was fun until my clumsy self tripped but my knight in shining armor was there to save me and carry me off to his lair. I definitely suggest trying it.
