8 Romantic, Sexy Activities While You're Stuck Inside During the Frankenstorm

by Gena Kaufman, Glamour

In the spirit of getting through the bad weather and power outage together, here are a few activities for you and your guy to keep your mind off being worried, to entertain yourselves, and maybe even to get things really heated up.

Board Games, possibly the "Strip Edition": Get out your classic board games like Monopoly, Scrabble, Life, etc., and make up your own added rules, such as "Remove one item of clothing when you pass go" or "Loser owes winner an amount of kisses equal to the points by which they lose." Play by candlelight in case of electricity problems AND for flattering light (but don't forget to be careful!)

Pillow Time:
Pillow fights, pillow forts, whatever. Act like a kid on a snow day but with the added benefit of being a grown up. If you just can't get into the silly effort of actually constructing a fort, just open your pull out couch, pile all the blankets and pillows on the bed (or just use the floor ), and watch a movie on your fluffy new spot.

Top Makeshift Chef: Challenge each other to each put together a dish using whatever ingredient you happen to have remembered to stock up on. Winner gets to decide what to have for dessert. Wink!

Book Club of Two:
If the electricity is out, you can make the most of the time away from the mind-numbing distraction of TV and the Internet, and read some good old-fashioned books. You could each challenge each other to read the first chapter of the other's favorite book, then reconvene and discuss. Or read out loud to each other. You could pick a slightly racy novel to make this a little hotter, but reading to each other is intimate and romantic even without a sex scene.

Plan an imaginary vacation:
If you've still got power, look up fancy hotels and exotic beaches on the web. Pick the most expensive, luxurious place you'd go and daydream about what you'd do in that swanky hotel room. If you can't scope pictures on the Internet, just make lists of places you'd love to go and compare.

Have an indoor picnic: That melting ice cream in the freezer isn't going to eat itself, people. But to make it extra fun, lay out a blanket and eat on the floor.

Make your own Mad Libs:
Write a short little story, leaving blanks for nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. Then have your partner fill in the blanks, and read the story out loud. I think it goes without saying this will be funnier if it gets a little naughty. Check out our exclusive Glamour version for inspiration!

Play masseuse:
Bust out some clean towels and your fanciest lotions, and take turns giving each other massages. Set the timer for a 30 minutes or even a full hour so you're really giving each other the full spa treatment. Even though you're probably not professionally trained, you'll still both feel relaxed and spoiled after, without spending hundreds of dollars.

I hope you guys are keeping entertained, and most importantly, safe! Take it easy on us, Sandy.
