Game Night just got kinky

I caught up with Keith from London about how he and his buddies spice up game night.

Each month, Keith hosts a Kinky Board Games party.

How did your Kinky Board Games parties get started?

I was always turned on the idea of games like strip poker. The gradual revealing of a sexy body is so much more titillating than an instant full frontal, in my opinion.

I’ve always enjoyed playing board games. As a child, we had Scrabble, Monopoly and Risk, for example. At Uni, my flatmate and I bought a couple of new games that had come onto the market and also used to play Subbuteo — table football.

It was only after we moved down to London in 2010 that the idea of combining board games and the sexual striptease element occurred to me.

Is it always the same group of guys who take part, or do different guys get involved each time?

There’s a hardcore group of guys who attend regularly, then several more who come and go. We have a group on Facebook, which is the easiest way to notify everyone of the dates I intend to host it. It’s almost always a Friday evening and takes place, on average, once a month.

As I can only invite guys into the group if we’re friends on Facebook, and some guys either don’t have Facebook or prefer other means of contact, it can still be quite complicated checking who’s attending.

The highest number I’ve hosted is 12 of us. In our small apartment, that represents quite a squeeze, but it was great fun, all the same. If I added up all the different guys who have attended at one time or another, it probably comes to about 50. We’ve had guys travel from Eastbourne, Tunbridge Wells, Essex, and even Portsmouth. I’m always happy to let one or two sleep over, as we have a comfy sofa-bed in the room where the games take place.

When I make contact with reasonably local and sexy guys on sites like Scruff, Grindr, or Growlr, I often invite them. I sometimes do the same at bars and clubs, the gym or at swimming, or the Naked Gym sessions I go to. My partner doesn’t enjoy these gatherings, so he tends to take himself off to Soho until I text him with an ‘all-clear’ message. We normally start at around 7:30 PM and finish around 11:00 PM.

What are the rules of the party?

The basic idea is that guys bring along drinks and nibbles and we sit around playing games, but a bad move or wrong answer may cost an item of clothing.

The first couple of times it was all so slow that I think one guy had lost one sock before everyone had to leave to catch the Tube home. These days we’ve sped up the procedure. For example, if we play Trivial Pursuit and someone lands on a triangle question and gets it wrong, they must remove an item of clothing. Most guys turn up with a sensible number of clothes on, not dressed up like a Michelin man in umpteen layers! Socks sometimes count individually, sometimes not, depending on the lateness of the hour, or speed of the game.

Apart from Trivial Pursuit, other games we’ve played include:

  • 5 Second Rule
  • Where is Moldova?
  • Sort it Out
  • Pass the Bomb
  • Bezzerwizzer
  • Taboo
  • Articulate
  • Scrabble
  • Colour Brain
  • On one occasion, we just rolled three dice, looking for three-of-a-kind or a run. Depending on numbers, we might play as individuals or in pairs. As many of the games are either word games or very British-centric, we try to organise foreign guys into pairs with a Brit.

Is there a winner of the game — or is it more about taking part?

There isn’t really a winner, although one idea is for the guy who wins a round of the game to nominate someone to remove an item of clothing. That tends to prevent a scenario where one or two are totally naked and guys who are better at board games are still fully clothed. One of our regulars has declared that if he hasn’t lost all his clothes by 9 PM, he’s going to strip anyway.

Does it turn into a sex party, or is it more just about getting naked and having some fun?

Once everyone gets naked, the board games tend to get pushed aside and a completely different type of game takes over. This happens even sooner if one or two guys are sitting there rock-hard and raring to go! So, yes, it does turn into an orgy, although there’s rarely any fucking.

What’s your ultimate kinky board games fantasy?

I don’t really have an ultimate kinky board games fantasy, although I suppose the old idea of throwing names or car keys into a hat does appeal. We haven’t tried that. We have, however, had one or two sessions where we omitted the board games and just got right down to the latter activities immediately!

Daddyhunt — the hunt continues

Exploring the dynamics of inter-generational dating and relationships, web-series Daddyhunt is back with a new series.

I caught up with Casey Crawford — General Manager of Daddyhunt and an Executive Producer of the series — for a behind-the-scenes look at Season 3.

Are you surprised by the success of the Daddyhunt series?

Daddyhunt was wonderfully surprised by the positive reaction to Season 1 of Daddyhunt: The Serial, especially the incredible amount of requests for more episodes. We credit that success with the fact that the show deals with real-world issues and challenges. We continually try to portray the dynamics of inter-generational relationships and other topics in authentic ways, and I think that resonates with our viewers.

The BHOC — Building Healthy Online Communities — partnership began with the second series of Daddyhunt, what was the audience response like to the incorporation of health messages in the series?

The BHOC partnership grew out of conversations that our CEO, Carl Sandler, had with Dan Wohlfeiler of BHOC. Carl and Dan both realised that a public-private partnership could reach the people that Dan’s organisation was targeting with their public health messages.

The audience response has been overwhelming positive. On YouTube alone, the Season 2 episodes and public services announcements have been viewed more than 8.8 million times. We’ve also received countless messages on our social media channels thanking us for incorporating health messages into the show and educating people about these important topics.

Season 3 of the series includes a more diverse cast. What was the casting process?

Dan and I started talking about what a Season 3 might look like right after releasing Episode 1 of Season 2. We knew that we wanted to reach a more diverse audience, and that meant including greater diversity in the cast. Once we figured out the story-line, the casting fell into place.

For example, viewers that watched Seasons 1 and Season 2 will remember AJ’s relationship with the two Antonios. We knew for Season 3 that we wanted to show Antonio and Antonio on the screen, and so crafted a way for that to happen with the story-line.

You’re tackling slightly more complicated health messages in season 3 — is that difficult from a creative perspective?

Any time you’re tackling complicated topics, it creates challenges in the creative process. We wanted to keep the series light and authentic and not come across as preachy, but we also wanted to educate people about important health issues facing our community. I’d like to think that we got the balance right.

Is the series an effective way to attract more users to the Daddyhunt app?

The series does attract more brand awareness for Daddyhunt, and we do experience an uptick in downloads of the app or joins via the website. Inter-generational relationships are becoming more common, and when you do a good job of portraying those relationships in an authentic way, people take notice.

Daddyhunt is a community where we want everyone to feel welcome regardless of age, race, ethnicity, or HIV status — we make that clear with the issues that we tackle in the series. It’s an effective tool for introducing people to Daddyhunt and encouraging them want to join the Daddyhunt community.

What do you hope that people feel when watching the Daddyhunt series?

Our goal is for people to come away from the show with a sense of hope. We’re living in challenging times. In the series, we see that all relationships go through ups and downs, but it’s how you learn and grow from the low moments that will make the relationship stronger in the end. So, ultimately, if people see that inter-generational relationships can work, and that HIV-positive and HIV-negative people can be in a relationship, we’ve accomplished some of our goals.
