While monogamous marriages continue to prevail as the most common way couples categorise their relationships, the need to keep things interesting both inside and outside the bedroom naturally deepens.
A couple from the US have recognised this, and one half of the couple (knows as user Mr. Easyweeks) took to Reddit to share with other users what he has labelled their “24/7 sex game” that keeps their relationship “spontaneous”.
To give a little bit of context, Easyweeks explains that he and his wife have been together for five years and married for about three of them. Additionally, they have been living together since before they even started dating.
Essentially, he says, the game is all built around hidden Post-It notes that are carefully placed throughout the house the duo share, or their individual belongings. Each person has their own colour of Post-It note they use, and they are able to hide them wherever they please. On those notes exist carefully curated instructions, or demands, that are written entirely to keep their sexual encounters spontaneous.
"If the other finds a note that's on your coloured paper, they have to do whatever your note says," Easyweeks explains.
"The notes are small and folded in a way that they can't be read from the outside, and they're sealed with double-sided tape. There's no way to read the content without damaging the note. The notes sometimes have things that have to be done immediately, and sometimes things that have a time or condition."

The rules, he says, are fairly straight forward.
Firstly, if you find a note, you must open it straight away. Secondly, instructions have to be fair. And thirdly, there can only ever be a maximum of 20 notes hidden at one time. Sound confusing? Easyweeks explains.
