Sex in The Shower – The Ultimate Guide

Man behind woman having sex in the shower

When you imagine having sex in the shower, what comes to mind? A James Bond type scene? Naked, soapy bodies exchanging steamy kisses? This is the dream.

But…

Most of us have attempted sex in the shower or bath before, often with less than desirable results. Between trying to get the right position, slipping and sliding around, and ensuring that the lube isn’t constantly being washed away; you may think that the fantasy is better left to Hollywood. All that being said, sex in the shower can be fun and sexy. You can’t expect it to work like normal intercourse, but you can find ways to make your bathroom your own sexual water park.

Don’t Forget the Foreplay

Great foreplay will always lead to great sex and getting it on in the shower is no exception!

Sex in the shower can be slippery, dangerous, and one of you is likely to end up with a cold ass. If done correctly, however, the good certainly outweighs the bad though!

Take the time to wash each other’s bodies, making sure to get soapy and slick. The shower provides a comfortable and intimate setting for you to explore your partner’s body from different angles and play with each other in new and exciting ways.

Grooming your partner can be a wonderfully intimate experience, and sensual massages from both hands and showerheads are guaranteed to get hearts racing.

Make sure you rinse away all the lathered soap before you move on to the main event, or else you’ll both be slipping all over the place. Also, avoid using soap or shampoo as makeshift lube – this can irritate delicate areas like the vagina.

For something a little different; when you’re both hot and ready to go, get out wrap her in fluffy towel, and perch her on the sink for a steamy session she won’t forget!

Use the Right Tools

One of the biggest problems with shower sex is the lack of space – it’s like trying to do gymnastics in a wardrobe. With limited space and slippery tiles, positioning yourself can be difficult, and nothing sounds sexier than being crammed into a small space, up on your toes, sliding around, banging elbows and knees, only minutes away from a trip to A&E. Don’t rely on your balance alone, experiment with leaning against a ledge or holding onto a bath edge for additional support. Investing in a bath matt will reduce slipping and provide some support for the knees if you decide to pleasure each other orally.

Alternatively, there are foot stools that are designed to be used in the shower. These are great for sitting on or anchoring your foot up so you can get more support and not get leg ache. Practical and sexy at the same time!

Water has a habit of washing away your body’s natural lubricants, so you’ll need to invest in a lube that will keep you wet for the entire session. Silicone lubricants are perfect for this as they’re water resistant and long lasting. Just remember that silicone toys and silicone lubricants don’t mix.

The Right Positioning

This will depend a lot on what type of shower you have – doggy-style is a popular choice that suits most showers. It’s easy to bend over and lean against the shower door or wall, or hold onto the bath edge while your partner takes you from behind. If you have a bit of space to play with and are flexible, try touching your toes…

Standing missionary is another good option where you can also prop your leg up on something to maintain stability.

Another factor to consider is height difference. If you and your partner are roughly the same height, face-to-face positions might be the most comfortable. If you are different heights, one partner can wrap a leg around the other or lean it over the tub edge as long as they have something to hold onto.

If you have a hand unit – one that has a hose and can detach – get creative and introduce it to your sexy shower escapades. Firstly, it allows you to get your partner wet everywhere. Secondly, play with different pressures and temperatures on their hot spots and hear them moan with pleasure! Try fun, flirty new things together in a new venue. Learn what turns you on and let each other know.

Experimenting is Part of the Fun!

The shower is, by definition, a clean and hygienic place. If you or your partner often stray away from certain things that you want to do but find it ‘unhygienic’ or ‘sticky’ – there is no better place to give them a go than in the shower. It really opens a lot of doors and allows you to experiment. From golden showers to chocolate body paint – it’s time to get your kink on!

If the logistics of shower sex doesn’t work for you, or if you end up feeling light-headed – move the fun to other areas of the bathroom or bedroom. You could bend your partner over the sink and enter them from behind or finish up on a towel on the bathroom floor. The cool air will feel refreshing and the change in location will add to the experience. What’s important is that you both have a fun, pleasurable experience. It should be sexy and sensual, not a chore.
