Some questions are designed to deepen your relationship, while others are just designed to bring out your silly side. Throw boring get-to-know-you staples to the wind, and engage your partner in some downright silly questions to get their mind whirling.

#1 Can you recite the alphabet backwards? Don’t just ask, put them to the test!

#2 What’s the funniest thing your parents would tell me about you from when you were little? Not only will this result in a great story, it’ll also save them the embarrassment of their parents telling you this tale first.

#4 What’s the best prank or surprise you’ve ever pulled off? This is another one whose answer can either result in knee-slapping hilarity, or just plain adorableness.

Fun and sexy questions

Asking your partner sex questions doesn’t always have to involve them revealing a torrid sexual rendezvous or secret kink through a game of “would you rather.” Instead, focus on the funnier aspects of sexy questions, and you may just find yourself howling with laughter.

#2 Ever faked an orgasm? If so, why? The answers to this question can be quite funny, depending on the circumstance… More so if the one answering “yes” is a male!

#3 Have you ever walked in on your parents having sex or have they ever walked in on you? I have asked this question to all my past boyfriends, and they all said yes to either the first or second question. The stories, while I’m sure are absolutely horrifying at the time, are definitely comedy gold in the present day.

#4 Have you ever sent an inappropriate text to the wrong person? Sending a scantily clad picture of your new Victoria’s Secret bra to grandma by mistake? Priceless.
