4 Real: Denmark's Sexy Lover's Game fit for a Crown Prince
Jamie Joy Gatto
May 14, 2004 a royal wedding was held in Copenhagen, Denmark. The lovely
Australian bride entered Our Lady Lutheran Cathedral, bedecked in iridescent
duchess satin, and wearing an heirloom veil of Irish lace, and crowned
with a diamond tiara. The air inside the cathedral was perfumed with the
scent of roses and chrysanthemums which highlighted her pathway to the
altar. There her Prince, overcome with emotion upon viewing the splendor
of his bride, awaited the exchange of their nuptial vows. The entire city
of Danish citizens flocked to the streets in order to celebrate this real-life
fairy tale wedding.
the same month, a unique and unusual wedding gift was delivered to Christiansborg
Palace in Copenhagen in honor of the marriage of Crown Prince Frederik
and his fiancee, Mary Donaldson. Designed to be elegant, yet evoke eroticism,
and presented in a sturdy box treated with matte lacquer, Erotic 4 Real®
an erotic game for lovers was given to the royal couple by Tine and Henrik
Sjoerup, the game's creators.
which may lead to an exciting, warm, inspiring and fun night in... it may
help in 'opening up' and getting closer to your partner."
we can only speculate as to the reaction of the couple's reception of the
intimate gift, the royal couple no doubt marveled at the beauty of the
game itself. Upon opening the burgundy-colored box, highlighted with a
golden, faux-marble finish they would find a selection of various cards
adorned with beautiful graphics nestled in black velveteen, along with
one die, two golden playing pieces made of solid brass, and detailed playing
instructions. After unfolding the game board, naturally they'd be impressed
by the details highlighted with ancient erotic art, and bordered in the
classic Greek key motif. Of course, they'd be intrigued by the layout of
Roman numerated squares, maybe wondering how such a game would be played.
Object of The Game," the rules state, "... combines eroticism and
can a mere board game achieve the same results expected after numerous
expert sessions in marital counseling, or bring about the sensual feelings
experienced by a can't-keep-your-hands-off each other newly-formed couple?
By asking players to guess their mate's most likely answers to questions
posed on morality, emotion and lust. You see, unlike many trivia-style
games, the person drawing a card must try to answer on behalf of his/her
partner in regard to thoughts, emotions and desires. The partner then reveals
whether or not the player's answer was correct. The "penalty" for an incorrectly
guessed answer is for the correct answer to be announced. This revealed
information often leads to discussion, and always leads to a better understanding
of one's partner-- which is not at all a penalty, but the gift of intimate
communication and a better insight into your partner's erotic mind.
even the "penalty" reaps relationship and sex benefits, imagine what the
for a correct answer might be! If answered correctly, players select in
order from a stack of cards having explicit, sensual instructions. The
stack starts off sweetly romantic, and progresses to just plain naughty.
Along the way, players learn about each other's
fantasies, turn-offs and taboos in an intimate, elegant, and non-intimidating
setting. Meanwhile players are slowly, yet steadily interacting in physical,
erotic foreplay. As play progresses and the cards grow spicier, players
grow hungrier with lust and longing for one another. It's no wonder couples
often abandon their board game play for full-on bedroom play. Certainly
such a delightful game has its place in the Crown Prince of Denmark's palatial
the royal wedding celebration, the newlyweds were ushered into a chauffeured
Rolls Royce, the rear bumper streaming with tin cans and "Just Married"
scrawled across the rear windshield. The couple immediately took off to
an exotic Tanzanian adventure. If they were smart, they ordered their valet
to pack Erotic 4 Real® to insure their days and nights were spent with
just the two of them entwined in passion, one step closer to a lasting
relationship filled with frank, sexual communication, and years of delighting
each other in the bedroom. Perhaps on return from the royal honeymoon,
Crown Prince Frederik and his new bride gave their wedding gift game the
bedside honor it most certainly deserves.

she and her partner achieved only correctly-guessed answers, which led
to acting out explicit instructions on lots of sex cards, which
ultimately fueled sexual mayhem, and then the total abandonment of anything
that had anything to do with talking. For those reasons, she highly recommends
the game. Visit Jamie Joy
