SPIN THE BOTTLE, TRUTH OR DARE
There was no way to win this game… yet we played anyway! If you chose the dare, you ran the risk of being embarrassed. It was a way for boys to explore their glandular curiosities and for girls to gain popularity.
Of course, this was all carefully timed and in front of everyone. The bottle was typically empty because it had been consumed by the party goers. After a certain age, parents feel comfortable leaving their kids unattended for an evening or even a weekend, here and there. I argued with my parents about how I was growing up and that they could trust me. The game was played by a group of people.
