Strip poker is a strip game and a variation of the traditional poker where players remove clothing when they lose a round. Any form of poker can be adopted to a strip form; however, it is usually played with simple variants with few betting rounds, like five card draw. Strip poker can be played by single-sex groups, or by mixed groups in social situations.

The rules of strip poker are flexible and intended to generate an atmosphere of fun, and to lighten the social atmosphere by the removal of clothing in place of or in addition to the betting of other games, but sometimes it is also to heighten the sexual atmosphere. Like other adult party games, activities besides removing clothing and playing cards might be involved. (“Truth or Dare?” type options are often included.)

Generally, the game starts with players wearing the same number of articles of clothing, though that is not necessary. In place of money and betting, the players who lose a round would remove an article of clothing. There are different rules as to what happens when a player has removed all their clothes. Some groups allow the person to put their clothes back on and continue playing, while others allow the person to continue playing without clothes, until everybody has removed their clothing, and others for the game to stop at that point, with the players either putting clothes back on, or remaining unclothed or semi-clothed for the rest of the evening.

Strip poker has been adopted for a person to play alone, either by use of video games or online; and several TV shows have been based on the game.
