Sacred Sex Game can be modified for your personal play
Below are some suggestions for lifestyle and relationship choices.
communication. communication. communication.
The best advice we can give for successful game play is clear communication. Whether you are playing with two, three, or four players; create clear boundaries for accepted sexual conduct and behavior by communicating what is comfortable and safe for each player. If anyone is unclear as to what their boundaries may or may not be, give special attention to this and communicate clearly with an open and loving heart.
Suggestions of ease of play
First and Foremost: Basic rules and boundaries must be set to ensure personal safety. Clear communication helps define and identify our own personal boundaries (examples: Yes, please!, Everything but “this” and “that”..., No, please don’t touch me “there”, I am only willing to do “this”, to “more please”) Be clear and concise! NO means NO!
Players can choose the same End Elixir and the same Start Block.
If a player draws a card that makes them feel unsafe or uncomfortable, they may choose to place that card at the bottom of the deck (without question) and draw another card.
The End Elixir list is extensive. Some of these End Elixirs may never be appropriate for some individuals and/or some relationships. Be respectful of each other and breathe deep while discussing your choices.
Wear comfortable clothing to play the game: athletic wear, soft robes, etc.
Create a pleasing space. You may sit at a table, coffee table, or on the floor. We recommend using blankets, pillows, music, etc. for a sensual environment.
Used cards can be neatly stacked on the outside of the cloth game. Impactful cards can be set aside for later discussion, reflection, or journaling. (Reshuffle card decks when needed.)
Used scorecards can be saved to show player progress and/or retained as chits for the End Elixirs.

We highly recommend that you play the game as a Dyad (2 players) first, to understand the basic mechanics of game play. These guides are for gameplay with; triads, two couples, group individuals, workshop partners, people who want to role play, friends that want to explore, etc.

One of our couples expressed that they want to be able to play through all of the 270 cards (which might take 4 to 5 separate game plays). So, after they played the first game, they decided to keep the game set-up. With the used cards omitted, they will continue to play new games with the remaining cards. (Brilliant!)
