Tips for Having Sex in the Water

Having sex in the water is overrated. There, I said it. There’s so much extra stuff that has to be dealt with, and it honestly becomes more of a matter of “doing it’ than actually focusing on the pleasure. That having been said, it also is one of those things that people love to cross off their bucket list – and it can be naughty and enjoyable in the right context! With that in mind, though, it’s important that you do a bit of preplanning before having sex in the water. Whether you’re planning it in an ocean or in your own shower, water makes for slippery surfaces – and not-so-slippery private areas. With that in mind, keep some of these tips in mind before you start experimenting with your next underwater sex adventure.

Heat the Water: As most people know, cold water doesn’t do so well with the genitals – especially the male side. If it’s possible, heat the water to a comfortable temperature. In some situations, like in the ocean or a pool, this may not be possible, so allow your body some time to get adjusted to the temperature – and be flexible if the cold water is getting in the way of sexual functioning.

Get Into a Safe Position: While it shouldn’t have to be said, safety comes first, and when we’re turned on, finding a safe position might not be at the forefront of our minds. However, it’s important that you both have good footing and a good grasp on one another before getting too rough. Especially in your own shower or bath, don’t be concerned about getting down onto hands and knees. It’s much better to have your stability than to end up in the ER because of awkwardly-explained broken bones. Some sex toys companies now make specific shower sex accessories just to help you achieve the perfect position in your shower; consider those as an option if you’re looking for shower sex.

Be Ready with Lubricant: You might be extremely turned on, but with water involved, the water can wash away a lot of the lubrication that females produce. You don’t want an uncomfortable penetration, so be ready with some lubricant on-hand if possible. Water-based lubricant will wash away in the water, but silicone-based lubricant should stick around despite the water. Silicone-based lubricant will keep everything slippery for an enjoyable romp in the water.

Understand Condom Difficulties: Not a ton of research has been done, but a few studies have shown that condoms are affected by use underwater. Hot water and chemicals can affect a condom’s durability, so make sure to have other condoms at-hand. In the best case, not relying on condoms or other latex barriers (having other protection sources) would be optimal.

Water Safety: It’s also important to keep the safety of the water in the back of your mind. Some sources of water really weren’t designed to be sanitary or clean – and that’s especially bad during sex. The same can be said about a hot tub or Jacuzzi that isn’t properly taken-care-of. Unsanitary water can cause rashes, irritation, or worse. Try to make sure that your source of water is clean. Of course, the easiest way to do this is to have sex in your own home or pool, but using reasonable precautions in other bodies of water can also help.

Legal Issues: If you’re not having sex inside your home, and instead, doing it in public, do be aware of legal issues. In most places, having sex in public is illegal.

With all of those things in mind, if you want to have sex in the water, have at it! Just make sure to do some fore-planning and keep safety in the forefront of your mind. Enjoy!
