Awkward name syntax aside, this is a perfect early-relationship game—like an icebreaker for new couples. It’s set up in the classic truth-or dare-format: Enter your own name and the name of your partner (you can include more than two players, which is very forward-thinking of the developers) and get the option of a task to perform or a secret to divulge.
I consider myself pretty adventurous, but even the most Charlotte-y among us might find the questions here pretty tame. The app asked us questions like, “Have you ever been to sex shops?” and, “Have you ever masturbated?” (Is there a sizable part of the population that could actually say no to that one?) Still, if you’ve only been on a few dates, are super shy, or are struggling to get to know a new partner, Dirty Couple Game could be a jumping-off point.
The dares, unfortunately, aren’t much wilder, with suggestions like “give a compliment” or “kiss your partner’s hips.” If you pay $8.99 for a full upgrade you can graduate to more “extreme” suggestions, like describing sexual fantasies or creating your own dares. Reviews in the App Store complain that it’s pretty focused on male pleasure, and I found myself agreeing. My husband, surprisingly enough, didn’t seem to mind.
