Why have sex in the shower?
We’ve already mentioned a few reasons above why shower sex is a great idea. But there are a few other benefits to having shower sex.
For one, you’re already naked—an excellent start! Besides this, can you imagine the eroticism of it all? The foreplay involved can be such a thrill. Even the act of washing each other is intimate and exciting.
Then, you can move onto other acts of foreplay. Soaping each other up, rubbing each other’s erogenous zones, like their breasts, clitoris, and ass. Sliding one’s hand up and down a partner’s erection! These reasons alone are enough to give shower sex a go.
But then there’s also the aspect of oral sex. Having one partner drop to their knees, feeling the warm water on their back, and the other leaning against the wall, receiving an abundance of pleasure.
And of course, when it comes to penetrative sex, you can try a few new positions and simply enjoy the wetness of it all. There are way less constraints involved too, as we mentioned, as you can let your juices flow! Cleaning up is simple (basically non-existent).
Whatever you consider to be the most erotic element of shower sex—whether it’s kissing, foreplay, oral sex, and/or penetrative sex—this activity can be really intimate, as it involves two people in a small space. This can add to its lustful appeal.
Lastly, shower sex is great if you don’t have a lot of privacy. Say, for example, you live in a dormitory or crowded apartment.
The best positions for shower sex
Finding the best positions for shower sex can take some time. It’s about finding a position that feels comfortable and arousing for both partners.
The best shower sex positions include:
1. Doggy style
This shower sex position works well because one partner can lean their hands against the wall for stability while the other penetrates them from behind.
2. The Ballet Dancer
The Ballet Dancer shower sex position means the one receiving penetration will face their partner, standing on one leg. Their partner will then grab and support their other leg and back. This is a more intimate shower sex position as it offers eye contact.
An easier alternative to the Ballet Dancer position is if you’re having shower sex in a bathtub/shower. In this case, the receiver of penetration can rest one leg on the side of the tub.
3. Shower Seat Sex
If you can get your hands on a shower seat or bench, you’ll be offered much easier access to sensational shower sex. For example, one partner can recline on the bench facing away from their lover, then be penetrated from behind.
Another shower sex position with a shower seat includes the partner being penetrated to lie on their back at the edge of the bench. They’ll then have their legs off the bench, and persist to put their legs on their partner’s chest.
4. The White Lotus
This sex position is a popular one in general, but to practice it in the shower is a whole new experience. If you have enough space in your shower, one partner will straddle the other while both are seated. In this way, the one straddling can choose an angle that gives the best penetrative bliss. It’s also an intimate shower sex position, as it allows for eye contact.
5. Standing Oral
The name suggests it all… one partner will stand while the other will bend down or get on their knees. In this position, the one on their knees can give their partner standing oral sex whilst feeling the water flow. The giver of oral could also grab the detachable shower head to stimulate their partner.
Benefits of shower sex
As if the climatic sensations felt during sex in the shower isn’t enough, there are actually a few other benefits to having sex in the shower.
For one, the warm water helps reduce tension in the body. This can leave both partners feeling more relaxed and more ready for other acts of sensual play.
Secondly, shower sex adds an element of variety to your sex life. Some couples may fall into a bedroom routine that gets boring. By simply changing the location of where you’re getting intimate, you could both experience a big and refreshing difference.
Thirdly, to have shower sex is to multitask. You can enjoy a bit of hanky panky then both get cleaned up and ready for the day. Not just that, but it also saves water.
And lastly, as mentioned, it makes any cleaning up absolutely effortless. You can enjoy period sex in the shower without having to worry about any mess, you can cum anywhere (including on your partner with consent), and if you’re a squirter, there’s no need to change the sheets. It’s a win for everyone involved.
Shower sex tips
For good measure, here are a few extra shower sex tips to ensure you have safe, pleasurable, and transcendent shower sex fun.
- Invest in a non-slip shower mat to avoid any accidents.
- Don’t get too rough, as it could increase your chances of falling.
- Water is great to add wetness, but it isn’t actually lube. If you want to add lubricant into the mix, go for a silicone lube or an oil-based lube by Luvloob or Drip Oil, as it will last much longer in water. Lube is definitely recommended if you’re having anal sex in the shower.
- If you’re wearing a condom, put it on before you enter the shower. It’s much harder to put on a condom when in water. Also, be sure that it’s been put on correctly as water could increase the likelihood of slipping.
- Avoid using bath oil or bubble bath as it can compromise the effectiveness of your condom.
Recommended toys for shower sex and foreplay
Here, we’ll take a gander at different lubes and sex toys that are perfect for your fantastic shower sex experience. Having these with you during your private steamy shower fun will make it even more hot and heavy.
Lube for shower sex
Above, we spoke a bit about lube and the fact that, while water does aid in some wetness, it’s not a substitute for lube. We also mentioned that silicone lube is a great way to go, but you could also go for an oil lube for shower sex.
Oil lubricant is amazing when it comes to shower sex because it doesn’t get washed away by water. One thing to note however, is that most condoms don’t pair well with oil lube, as it may break down the material.
We personally recommend the Luvloob Are You Keen Chocolate Natural Oil-Based Lubricant Flavoured Lubricant. It has a rich natural chocolate taste, many beneficial ingredients to provide nourishment on the skin, and it is long lasting. This means that it doesn't even need to be washed off at all.
The Drip Oil Based Organic Coconut & Hemp Seed Lubricant is equally as great for shower sex. It’s easy to use with its controlled pump container, is fragrance and flavour free, and removes friction. It also has a sealable lid and removable cap, making it travel-friendly.
