Maybe you have tried sex in the shower or bath and have found it uncomfortable or impossible, maybe you are looking to spice up your intimacy or sexual relations, or maybe you have simply never tried it and would like to give it a whirl. Aside from making sure the tub is nice and clean and not too slippery, there are a few pointers which you may find helpful.
Added Lubrication. One of the general assumptions about sex involving water is that lubrication is automatically there. Of course, water has lubricating properties, but not for this type of thing. Have you ever noticed that laundry detergent has properties which actually break up water droplets entirely? It is supposed to be conducive to “wetter” water.
Water naturally has chemical bonding which forms a skin on it and causes it to form into droplets on a smooth surface. Detergent breaks up that skin, allowing the water to soak into clothing much more quickly. You should NOT be using detergent during sex, but the point of this is: regular water is not that lubricating. Add to your comfort by making sure that lotion and/or other lubricants are at hand.
Solid Positions. Try to not get too risky in the bathtub or water container in which you are playing. Either perform oral sex and physically rub together to bond and increase intimacy or make sure that both partners are in solid, safe positions from which you cannot slip and injure yourself.
Rather than taking upright positions, even in showers without bathtubs, try getting on the floor of the water arena and prevent injury by being closer to the ground. Also, if you are feeling particularly frisky, keep in mind that infection can develop if you do not wash thoroughly both before and after your fun.
Toys. Water is where some of your dry land toys can be revved up and used for added intensity and enjoyment. Be sure and not put battery operated toys or electrical toys under the water, and check for actual sealing rings around the inside parts of the toys to confirm that they can even be used in the water.
Soap and Conditioner. Soap and Hair Conditioner, as well as other lubricants, are highly slippery and can cause even the most gifted person being careful to slip and fall in or out of the bathtub. Be very cautious when using these in positions other than standing up in the shower. To make sure that all of the soap and conditioner have washed away, rub your finger or toe along the surface of the tub and see if it squeaks. If it squeaks, it’s clean. If not, keep rinsing and rubbing until it is safe.
Couples can enjoy a multitude of ways to have fun in the shower and bath, however, they must be safe when doing so. Not only can injury occur, but discomfort and strain as well. Follow these basic guidelines to enjoy your bathtime experience t hat much more!
