Shower sex is something that always seems to look incredible and easy in movies but never pans out in real life. The same goes for a steamy romp in the tub. Learning how to upgrade your moves in the bathroom takes some effort, preparation, and some extra tools.
The shower is a great place for getting down and dirty because it means you’re already on your way to being pristine and clean again. Rather than sleeping between sweaty and damp sheets, you can rinse your good times down the drain and quickly towel off. It’s also a fun way to add a bit of spontaneity into your life.
If you’re ready to start enjoying hot and steamy passion in the bathroom, read on to discover our top tips…
While the majority of your toys will call for a water-based lubricant, this will simply wash away in the shower or bath. Instead, reach for a bottle of silicone-based lubricant, as this will stay put and keep you feeling slick. Be careful if you’re using this in the shower, as any spills on the floor could create a very slippery and dangerous environment.
A silicone-based lubricant is also ideal in the bath, and it won’t wash off even when submerged in water. Remember to keep this lubricant away from your silicone toys as it will break down the material over time.
Trying to get traction on walls, shower screens and shower rails could lead to you breaking things you don’t want to break. Shower handles, footrests and straps will make it much easier for you and your partner to get a grip and get in position. You can even buy cuff restraints to enjoy a touch of control play.
Shower handles will make shower sex safer and more enjoyable for everyone, and it reduces the risk that one of you will fall and ruin the mood. For added safety, a non-slip shower mat on the floor will ensure you have good traction.
Check your favourite sex toys to find out if they’re waterproof before you invite them to play. This is the time to bring out the butt plugs, vibrating bullets and nipple clamps to get things started.
Investing in a rubber duck toy is a great way to make sure you always have a vibrating friend to hand, even in the event of spontaneous shower sex. Leave this in the bathroom for a spot of solo fun when you’re showering alone.
If you’re planning a steamy night in the bath, make sure you set the scene. Use a heavily scented bath milk or bubble bath to create a sensory treat. Light a few candles to create the perfect lighting. And finally, put on your sexiest playlist to complete the experience. This Lovers Choice Romantic Essentials Kit contains everything you need for a sexy time in the tub.
The showerhead can only cover so much, so at some point, one of you is going to be soaking wet and standing in the cold. Turning up the heat in your home and on the shower will make things more comfortable. Turn the shower on ahead of time and let the room get all steamy and you’ll make sure everyone is comfortable.
Shower sex isn’t any safer than horizontal sex in a bed, so don’t skimp on protection. Using a featherweight condom will increase your sensations and make your shower sex feel spontaneous and off the cuff, even if it was very very planned.
The shower is a great place to explore oral sex, so don’t get caught up in the perceived glamour of penetrative shower sex. Use this time to explore each other’s bodies and find out what makes you both tick. Trying new things in the shower can be a liberating experience, so don’t worry about what you think it should look like and just have fun with it. Shower sex can transform your day and set you up with a brighter outlook if you embrace it and learn to have fun with it.
