Sick of scrolling through Netflix mindlessly, wondering how you seem to have watched everything already? Wondering what couples activity to try out but feeling uninspired? Here are some suggestions for the hottest in entertainment to try in 2020.
Do: Get creative with body painting
Get to grips with your partner’s body in an entirely new way, working with each other as canvases, as you take on body painting as art therapy. While you and your lady friend may have been to the odd drink and draw night, or perhaps tried out a ceramics class, there can be an intimacy to body painting that may bring you closer together, dig out the inner artist in you, or just give you a giggle or two.
Depending on where you are in the world, you may find a body painting workshop to attend, if you’d like to go to a class or be in a group, with materials provided. This can be a good option for beginners or those who’d like a more structured environment.
The other option is to do it just the two of you at home. You can purchase high-quality body paints, brushes, and sponges online, perhaps watch a YouTube video or two for some inspiration, and then just get to it, letting your imagination run free.
Watch: The L Word: Generation Q
For those with an L shaped hole in their hearts left by the absence of the original series of the L Word, that wrapped up in 2009, — or even for those who haven’t watched the original — The L Word: Generation Q is waiting on Showtime.
Set 10 years after the end of the original series, we see some storylines continuing, but with an abundance of hot new talent, 2020 themes, and plenty of fun, friendship, love, heartbreak, and ridiculousness.
Series one has already premiered, so you and yours can get stuck into a marathon, plus feel safe in the knowledge Generation Q will be back again, as it’s already been given the green light for a second season. Plus, this means you can go back and rewatch all of the original series, too.
Play: Online casinos
Have a competitive streak in your relationship? Feel like a little healthy competition at home on the couch? It’s time to get out your phones and raise the stakes, going head to head to see who can stack the most chips in the world of online casinos.
If neither of you have browsed what’s available in the online casino space, then you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the games on offer, the quality of graphics and gameplay, and the bonuses that you can claim.
From slots to poker, blackjack, and baccarat, there are plenty of games to play, and with many casinos offering a ‘play with friends’ feature, you can even be seated at the same virtual table if you wish. There are different casinos available in different regions of the world, like these sites offering free play right now in India, so check out what’s on offer in your hood.
Visit: Cirque Du Soleil in Vegas
The Cirque Du Soleil shows are undoubtedly some of the most awe-inspiring acrobatics and production shows on the planet. And if you or she haven’t managed to catch a show yet, and there are none traveling to your city this year, then it might just be time to pay Sin City a visit.
Las Vegas is home to no less than 7 different Cirque shows this year:
• Zumanity at New York New York Hotel & Casino; a sexy, naughty, burlesque and cabaret acrobatic feast that’s strictly 18+
• Mystère at Treasure Island; a funhouse-style production packed with silliness and light
• “O” at the Bellagio Hotel & Casino; an aquatic, theatrical treat featuring not only acrobats but synchronized swimmers and divers
• KÀ at the MGM Grand; a story of grandiose battle the likes of which the gods would engage in
• R.U.N at the Luxor Hotel & Casino; a gitty chase-style adventure set in the underground of Las Vegas
• Michael Jackson ONE at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino; MJ’s music come to life as never before
• The Beatles LOVE at The Mirage; a ‘rock’n’roll poem’ that brings the Beatles works into a LOVE-inspired journey
Head to a few Cirque shows, take in a concert or two, a helicopter ride, or whatever strikes your fancy in the world’s biggest adult playground city.
