Whenever you want to try to spice up your sex life by taking things out of the bedroom and into a new location, the shower is one of the first places that come to mind. In fact, having sex in the shower seems simple and almost natural to most of us but there are a few things you need to keep in mind before hopping in and turning on the water.
How to have sex in the shower?
The process of having sex in the shower is quite similar to that of having sex anywhere else in the house. However, there are several things you need to keep in mind when engaging in shower sex. First of all, you need to be mindful of the bathtub faucet, accidentally plumbing or pressing your body into it can be quite painful. Plus, you can accidentally change the temperature of the water, which can easily ruin even the most passionate lovemaking session.
Secondly, the floor of the bathtub can easily get very slippery, especially if you decide to wash each other with soap as part of foreplay or take a bubble bath before shower sex, so an anti-slip mat could be helpful. If you do use soap at any time during this experience, make sure to wash all of it off before having sex, as it can sting a lot if it gets into your private areas.
Finally, keep in mind that water can’t be used as a lubricant and it can actually wash away a woman’s natural lubrication very quickly, which is why you should bring a bottle of water or silicone-based lube with you to the shower.
Best shower sex positions
The best ways to have sex in the shower are while standing up or sitting down in the tub. One of the top standing shower sex positions is the Frisk. In this position, the woman stands up and faces the wall with her legs apart, her hands on the wall and her butt sticking back for easier penetration, the man just needs to stand behind the woman facing her and begin penetration. A slightly more challenging standing shower sex position is the Hanging garden, during which the two partners are facing each other and the woman is pressed against the wall with her wrapped around the man’s hips and thighs.
If your bathtub is large enough for you two to sit in it, try the Union of the Lotus position, during which the man sits in the bathtub with his legs stretched out and the woman sits in his lap with her legs wrapped around the man’s waist.
