11 Benefits and Precautions of Spicing It Up with Shower Sex
When it comes to sex in the shower, the only thing that gets slippery when wet is the shower floor. This creates a potentially revolutionary bond that isn’t as sexy as in the movies. In fact, anyone who has had sex in the shower in real life will likely tell you that it is actually the worst.
That said, sex in the shower has the potential to be the stuff of movies with the right moves. It’s a fun way to steam things – literally – and it can be a good break in the bedroom.
We have positions, products and other details to help you rub safely and sexually.
Sex Tips in the Shower
Hit the showers with these tips to master sex in the shower like a boss and get out on the other side with no broken bones or bruised egos.
1. Increase the heat
Seriously. It’s hard to get hot when you’re cold and you can bet on your wet bottom that at least one of you will be. A shower head can only cover a large part of the floor, so it is best to increase the heat beforehand.
2. Buy a lubricant suitable for the shower
Yes, the water is wet, but it is not a slippery lubricant. Reduce friction and facilitate anal or vaginal penetration with a waterproof silicone lubricant.
3. Invest in a non-slip shower mat
A non-slip bath mat is essential if you plan to become tasty and sexy at the same time. These adherent mats adhere to the bottom of your bathtub or shower and can be folded up for cleaning when you are finished getting dirty.
4. Rinse, then rinse a little more
Lathering your lover can be the epitome of romance in movies, but soap, shampoo, and most importantly conditioner can make the shower floor smoother. If you are going to lather together, rinse well to get rid of any viscous residue. Plus, the soap is slippery, but it’s not lubricant, so don’t go there.
5. Bath toys
Bath toys aren’t just for kids – at least not the kind we’re talking about. You have pretty impressive options when it comes to waterproof sex toys like vibrating loofahs, waterproof vibrators and anal plugs.
6. Don’t get stuck on penetration
Penetration is not the holy grail of sex in the shower and does not need to be your goal or your endgame. The shower lends itself well to other types of play, including oral sex and mutual exploration of erogenous zones.
Virtually all sexual positions can be performed in the shower if you are determined enough, but that doesn’t mean that they are all a good idea. To avoid sliding while sliding towards the emergency room, try the following positions.
Pro tip: Get a shower handle or footrest for extra support during sex in the shower They are affordable, reusable, and much stronger and safer than the shower curtain or soap dish.
1. Doggy standing
This dog approach allows you to keep both feet firmly planted on the shower floor while using your hands for additional support.
To do it:
Place your palms flat against the shower wall, leaning over it with your knees slightly bent. This allows the other person to penetrate you from behind using a penis, a sex toy or fingers. They can also show your clitoris, perineum or other lumps a little love.
2. Sit back and ride
It works well for P-to-V sex, but can also work for anal penetration if you just tilt right.
To do it:
Ask your partner to sit on the shower floor, on the shower bench if you have one, or on the side of the tub. Get them in any position that allows comfortable penetration and hold them securely while you go for a ride.
3. Take a step ahead
While not entirely necessary, this is a position that would benefit from the footrest and handle that we mentioned, but the side of the tub or shower seat will also do the trick.
To do it:
Stand facing your partner and bring one leg to the footrest, bench or the edge of the tub. If you don’t have any of these, ask your partner to use one hand to lift your leg as it grows.
4. I have my back
This is similar to the position of the legs, except with the back to your partner. It also works for vaginal penetration from behind and anal penetration.
To do this:
Stand facing the shower wall and place your foot on the footrest, bench or the edge of the tub to support it. Ask your partner to stand directly behind you and lift your leg for extra support while it enters you.
5. The President
It is like an inverted cowgirl, only it can be used even without a cow or girl in sight.
To do this:
Ask your partner to sit on the shower bench, the edge of the tub or the floor. Straddling their knees, facing them, positioning yourself for anal or vaginal penetration. Place your hands on their knees or against the shower wall for balance.
Sex in the shower can be precarious – and we’re not just talking about falls. With a non-slip mat and making sure you are holding the wall, the handle or any other solid surface for support, there are a few other things you should keep in mind.
- Use condoms. Sex in the shower can be clean, but it won’t protect you from STIs. Use condoms for penetrative sex and oral sex. A condom can also be cut to serve as a dental dam for going down or rimming.
- Consent is the key. Sex in the shower is not everyone’s bag. Unless both parties agree and fully agree, you will need to find another way to spice up the things you are comfortable with. Communicate with your partner what is good and what is not.
- Things also get slippery outside of the shower. Be careful when you get out of the shower or the bathtub. Wet floors, floor mats, and bodies tangled in the throes of passion that make their way to the bedroom make triggering a serious possibility. Walk, don’t run.
- Staying wet too long can cause bacteria. Sorry to curb your enjoyment, but the humid regions below are fertile ground for bacteria and fungi. Be sure to dry thoroughly after a shower to avoid a yeast infection.
To take away
Amazing sex in the shower is possible with some communication, care and a little skill.
Remember, sex doesn’t look the same for everyone and having sex in the shower is difficult – no pun intended. There are many other things that can make a pleasant shower session.
